316: What doesn’t kill you, hurts like a bitch the day after

Recorded on the Ides of May and we welcome our guest, Anthony, to the show. We start right off with our first beer of the week, Council Brewing’s Deadlock Ale. With beer in our bellies, we get started on the happenings of the last two months, starting with the Apocalyptica concert we went to and the Beyonce concert that Victoria attended. Then we get to the question of the night: DAVID BOWIE OR PRINCE? Tony goes with Bowie, Victoria says they have two different places in her heart but Prince wins out. Daniel gets away with not making a decision.

Beer number 2 is Game of Thrones themed and so we get into that a bit and ignore the beer which isn’t bad but just suffered from bad timing on our part. We get into book series we like such as: The First Law Trilogy by Joe Abercrombie and The Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown. Once we get around to reviewing a very good beer, we praise the genius of Barrel Republic and Splash, which are places you can pour beer and pay by the volume and by that we mean hundredth of an ounce. Daniel’s going on a Canada trip and is looking forward to trying lots of Canadian brews.

Victoria has a love for fried pickles and no she’s not pregnant. We hit up Pete’s Seafood recently (awesome lobster roll) and Small Bar (awesome everything) for that and beers. Naturally, this devolves into movies that bars and pubs tend to play when sportsing isn’t on, like those with parkour or what Victoria calls, “kick punching.” This also naturally goes into taco spots around San Diego. They almost all win. There, you’re caught up. Now go get you some!

315: Universary o’Nein! aka “Where is our adult?”

First an announcement: Un-X will be March 18, 2017. You have over 10 months to plan. So, no excuses. Now on with the show.

This is our 9th Universary, so at this point, you should know what to expect. Topics to include: our upstairs neighbor got drunk before the rest of us and came over, Daniel brewed a great beer, Rumspringa! Stupid Question of the Night: what emoji would you like to have on your tombstone? Is our 2nd beer just another questionable thing we put oin Butch’s mouth? Victoria is the female Fagin of Halloween, and we get into a discussion about young girls who look older and the awkward situation men put them in. This obviously leads to our discovery of masturbation. This naturally almost leads to a fight over ice cream, a cinnamon hazel nut beer and the end of the show.

314: It’s Orgasmic Meditation, Fucko

It’s another Mancast with Butch and Tony! This one’s got FIVE (5) beers of the week. We all agree Daylight Savings Time is a waste of it. We watch the Aztecs lose the MWC final AGAIN in the perfect location for it: a dive bar at 4pm on a Saturday. Is Pliny the Younger overrated? It’s a triple IPA so naturally, we drinks 3 IPAs in a row to find out. In order:

  1. Drake’s Brewing Hopocalypse
  2. Green Flash West Coast IPA
  3. Ska Brewing Decadent Imperial IPA

Also, big love to Coop’s West Texas BBQ for the amazing meat for men. San Diego sports teams however, need to step up their game. We make our first announce the official date for U-X Universary 10…March 18, 2017. You have ZERO excuses for not being there in person. NONE. Daniel makes a trade of beer for brisket that’s amazing and we remember when Butch first met Whitney Shay but Butch is saving his cream for the cream at The Milk Bar in North Park.

313: Two-Beer Victoria

After 2 beers, Victoria needs food not hockey. We skip a Gulls game to record this for you guys and we’re happy with our decision. 43-45 BC were one year because it’s a fucking mess in Rome, 440 days a year. Victoria has to wait 9 months for arancini because…she got a little um, excited last time and now she’s pregnant. That is, if she doesn’t die in Paris first. We go quickly through the first two beers of the week. Through this, we learn true love is eating a demon baby out of your stomach. Victoria says the movie Lucy is shit and Kanye has gone cray but Jay-Z is not, nor is Beyonce.
Scary movies are scary. Deadpool is NOT a family movie but Victoria somehow makes it more juvenile. That said we both have shit show movies we just have to watch: Gods of Egypt and Eddie the Eagle. Why not combine them? Wonder Twin powers activate! Beer of the Week #3 make us ask, “Hey Australia; what’s with the green and gold as your national colors? Not good enough to be on your flag but good enough for everything else?” We’ll leave you with this happy thought: CGI Paul Walker will never die.

312: Let’s Burn Things

Everyone quiet down! Victoria has something to say and you know you that bitch when you cause all this conversation. That’s right, we’re starting this one off with a TWO (you heard me) TWO Awesome List show and the first is ALL Miss Queen Bey herself. And how old does Butch sound saying “from the Harry Potter…?” While he might look like a lost Weasley, I’m not so sure Ellie Golding’s ready to get Sirius Black. Daniel knows. He can tell you ‘cuz he’s Batboy now.

Speaking of that, clickbait of the week: Victoria went to a concert with her dad and what she did will shock and awe you! All these distractions finally bring us to our first beer of the week and how is it we haven’t reviewed Stone Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout before?! Well, it’s amazing. Next topic. Butch goes into his week of food poisoning. NOPE. NEXT TOPIC. How about Neil Degrasse Tyson vs B.o.B. in a little diss-track back and forth featuring the Flat Earth Singers? Either way, Steph Curry is the Cool Papa Bell + Christy Mathewson of basketball. We discuss wrestlers past and (not related) an awesome vegan restaurant called Cafe Gratitude.

In a trio of unbelievable news stories, a man kills his wife with a dutch oven, a tiger befriending a goat constitutes homosexuality in Russia, and a dead old hag hates Jay Cutler and social media goes wild. The first Beer to the Rescue went very well and folks at Benchmark Brewing were awesome but that 13.7% ABV Hildegard IIIPA, while delicious, will knock you on your ass. We of course, followed this up the only way you can follow up anything so awesome: Coop’s West Texas BBQ. This leads us to Beer of the Week #3. Green Flash made a great IPA this holiday season and when they’d finally grown tired of it, sold it for $2 a bottle or $20 a case…for 22oz bottles. What a delicious beer. And note to Groundswell Brewing, Budweiser is more a beer than your Belgian Trippel is a Trippel. Belgian trippels shouldn’t have American yeast and be over 90 IBUs. This brings us to our second Awesome List of the night and our Super Bowl predictions. Hint: don’t rely on us for predicting anything ever.

311: It’s Like Caligula For Children

This is our first recorded episode of 2016. Creed makes God cry. Victoria gets upset because a Buzzfeed Quiz told her she’d fail 4th grade science. Facebook trending topics are ridiculous. For example, are German people racist for buying Mein Kampf? Guess where the Kardashian loving Vivi sides on this debate. I’ll give you a hint: Daniel takes a hard “Fuck Cancer” stance, while she takes a softer “it happens, get over it!” approach.

Our search for brown ales continues. The first from Alesmith, is amazing. The second, by Black Market, not so much. This is made up by the new Uncast Winter Cocktail. Want to know how to make it? Listen to the show or call the Uncast Line. Christmas was eventful with a great basketball match and a new favorite cocktail bar, Seven Grand. This follows with Daniel being very adamantly wrong for a second time in the show. It’s kinda awkward how wrong he is.

He does tell a story about a pretty epic day that he and Butch had on December 12th. We ended 2015 with a wonderful night at Becky’s house with great food, drinks, and Cards Against Humanity. We move on to 2016 goals (not resolutions) which includes a great book Becky got for Victoria, Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook which is a book of vegan recipes that have so far been pretty amazing. From food back to beer and on to movies. It’s a natural progression! We enjoyed all three blockbusters we saw this winter: Star Wars The Force Awakens, Hateful Eight, and The Revenant.

310: Dick Jokes and Mind Violence – OMG, I can hear all the spices!

Andrea is in the house and we go through his first experience with Black Friday and Thanksgiving in the States. We move on from family drama to our thoughts of Spectre. Hint: just don’t. We also discuss (at the time) upcoming movies like Star Wars and The Revenant, and we hear what our first thoughts were before 311 when we give our reviews. This goes so well, Andrea goes off on Daniel for his new built rig.

After a brief break, we go through some deep relationship focused discussion. If a mime is alone in the forest, does he make a sound? Why does Victoria hate the penis Peanuts? From there, it’s back to movies and then music. Daniel briefly recounts their night during beer week, and naming beers. He also recounts his day brewing his first ever beer, the aptly dubbed Plan C IPA.

Victoria and Andrea regale us with tales from their trip to Seattle, including Pike Place Market and the EMP. Daniel laments the unfulfillment of his cravings and Andrea picks on Americans for having choices. Victoria talks up Cafe Gratitude and we all make a little fun at the Reverend Hipster Heatfield (misspelling intended) that is the bouncer at The Office Bar. At this point, Victoria gets pretty fed up and we end the episode abruptly, not recording for another 7 weeks.
