A Very Special Uncast: 30th Birthday Spectacular!

Not going to clog this one up with notes. It’s 50 minutes long and it may be the greatest thing we’ve ever released. Come along for the ride as we are having the night of our lives.

084: We All Scream For Ice Cream

DaHonay joins us as we reminisce about the past weekend celebration of Victoria’s xx birthday!

It starts with chores and moves to PARTAY!

Listen and enjoy to the 90 minutes of fun!

083: This One Will Have Balls of Granite

Victoria and Becky have a ladies day out which includes: Haircuts (picture to be posted later), lunch at Saffron, sneaking booze into Sex and The City and frozen yogurt from Golden Spoon. Meanwhile, I get a photography job offer, enjoy a weekend virtually alone and our patio (and my dartboard cabinet) gets rained on by soap.

We also discuss latest news like the acquittal of R. Kelly and the deaths of Tim Russert and Charlie Jones. Who’s the next NBC personality to go? We include a list of badass last words and share some stories of Victoria’s day at the Del Mar Fair. This blue ribbon winner weighs in at 1:03:35.

Don’t forget we still have the “name that song” contest going until five days after we release episode 88! Start getting your list filled out!

082: He Popped My Hymie!

A very interesting show indeed. We start out with new equipment that won’t work and move on to some observations Victoria made recently. Among those observations are the following: music and math lead to clowns being midnight tokers, the philosophy of little people, things that share a love of forts, shamateurism, the conundrum that exists in a hummus and ham sandwich and cats from Ancient Egypt to the Internet.

Speaking of cats, Cinnamon finally struck back after all the abuse she’s taken over the last 81 episodes. I don’t know what her problem is really. We let her appear on every show.

Victoria brings us another great Awesome List!

We also come with two articles from Reuters:
1. How does a man have a heart attack on Hawai’i? Was it the poi?
2. Is it cheating if you weren’t technically married at the time?

Oh and have you all noticed something a little different at the end of the last few episodes, say from episode 78 on? Well…
WE HAVE A NEW CONTEST!!!
To celebrate our 30th birthdays, we’re playing our favorite songs from each year of our lives. 1978 being Episode 78 and so forth, we each chose one song each from that year as our favorite making sure none repeated.
It is your job to guess the song title and band by listening to the short clips we play at the end of each episode from 78 to 88. Because waiting until 108 would be too long and we wanna give you your prize!
The deadline is five days after Episode 88 is released. SO be sure you listen to that last episode quickly and get those entries in to us at
uncast.net@gmail.com
The prize will be an mp3 CD of all the songs 1978-2008, an Awesome List prize pack and a plethora of small trinkets and surprises.

Oh and isn’t this a coincidence? At the time we recorded the episode, Chipper Jones was hitting .420. The length of the episode? 42.0 minutes exactly. Is it magic or are you just high?

081: Isn’t Grace Slick Dead?

There is a ton to consume in this episode. We start out with fresh deep fried charioke, a bowl of boiled sequels, birthday cake and a plate of sadness.

We have a new segment based on dreams and we ask you to submit one or both of the following:
1. What is the strangest job you have dreamed of?
2. What is the weirdest and/or most awesome dream you can remember?
We rant about kids in the store and parents who don’t watch after their kids. We had some cousins visit for dinner and we talk about the good time we had. All this comes to you in just over 61 minutes.

In the episode I read this and wanted to include it in the show notes for full effect. It’s an excerpt from Isaiah 66 written in lolcatspeak with some words changed to fit references to the dear friend and listener we lost last week, Anthony Hartman, aka windowsanddoors. We love you and will miss you forever…here it is:

“rejoice wif anfonee an be glad foars him, evryones dat luvs him; be not st00pid n00bs ovar him, All u hoo mourn ovar him. 4 u wil b nursin teh comfortin titties on paltawks; yooz drink the bud ice milk til u spitz on yooself an smilz cuz u iz drunk.” dis ar wut the ceiling cat sayz: “ur joiz let me show u them. iz gonna giv bearz 2 dem like ovrflwd milk dish, an cheezburgers ov nashuns liek mak donulz; u will b lik nomnomnom an be carrid the arm ov teh hoomen, and her warez soft woolz, an dangld on her kneez as hoomens comferts thems kittehs, iz wil so comferts u; an be comfertd ovar anfonee.”when u c dis, ur hart wil tink it has cheezburger an u wil be happy cat an evrythins; srsly.
