Straight Outta Boise

Summerjack came to OC to make it big, and they love it here more than you do

"You hear some people talk about Orange County like they're excited to get out of it—they've lived here their whole lives and want to get out, and it's like, 'What are you talking about?'" asks Piccotti, emphatically. "'You live in heaven! People move from all over the globe to get here, and you want to move away? You don't even know. You have no idea what people outside Southern California think of this place. We watch it on movies, we listen to your music, we watch you people start up different companies based on nothing but a dream and a few bucks you borrow from Dad, and it's like, tell me that ambition, that drive, that sense of oneself, grounded in this beautiful weather, tell me that's not enviable."

And for the first time in God knows how long, you actually kind of, sort of, maybe just a little bit, agree.
