152: Boner Juice

We start the show right off with the announcement of some of our listener/friends coming to join us soon! Expect more details on the upcoming JanuaRHI (copyright Butch Rosser 2009) soon. Victoria comes up with a couple great “of love” reality shows and we ask all of you what way you would want to die: Shot in the face or beheading by samurai sword? Thoughts coming out of some podcasts I listened to this week includes using the moon as a prison colony, Whether the phrase “boner juice” has a place in conversational English and the curse of the phrase “I’m not here to make friends. I’m here to win.”

We pick apart sexual labels thanks to Marina and Dr Boyfriend on I Love Lard. Victoria follows that deep conversation up with 11 Things Wal-Mart Has Banned. Victoria has stories from her Sexual Harassment Training at work and apparently the Tower of Babel was blasphemous but the Hubbel Telescope and skyscrapers are just fine. Victoria gives us some recipes and we go through the game of the week and send you off to enjoy your week. This lands you squarely in the 66:15 range. Enjoy!

Recipe Of The Week:

Firecracker Cornbread

3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups corn, fresh (or at room temperature if previously frozen)

more butter for drizzling (optional)

Preheat your oven to 350F degrees, with a rack in the middle.

Just before you make the batter, in a small saucepan, melt the butter, stir in the red pepper flakes, and pour into a 9-inch pie tin (I have an enameled cast-iron one that is perfect) or equivalent baking dish. Place in the hot oven.

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl whisk together the buttermilk, egg, and corn. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and stir until just combined. Now very carefully remove the hot pan with butter from the oven. Fill it with the cornbread batter, pushing the batter out to the sides if needed. Bake for 30 – 40 minutes or until the edges are golden and the center is just set. Remove and drizzle with a bit of melted butter (optional).

Makes 10 slices.

151: If The Balloon Pops, The Angels Will Cry

This week we mourn the passing of Patrick Swayze. We’re grateful for what he gave to women’s fantasies everywhere and happy he’s no longer suffering. There’s a recap of week one of the NFL. Lots of sloppy games including our game of the week. We run down a list of rules to see if Victoria is ready to be a true fan of the Bills.

Victoria expresses her distaste for some lyrics and Jessica Simpson loses her dog. Add in an Awesome List, some lessons from TV and our hatred of the latest round of Bud Light inventions (including Bud Light itself) and you’ve got yourself sixty minutes of fun.

Do you agree or disagree with the rules? We wanna hear from the rest of you “true” sports fans. Have you seen Jessica Simpson’s dog? What did you think of this week’s episode. Have any suggestions for future shows? Give us a call at (619) 940-4SEX or email us at uncast.net@gmail.com

150: The Lightning Round

Butch joins us this week for the ever important show 150. We start off with a delicious beer, Daniel expresses his theory that everyone’s sexual orientation goes at least 2% the other way and we ask the important question: If you can’t wear white after Labor Day, when can you wear white again? Butch recommends some books for us to read as summer ends and we go through some of the things we did this Labor Day weekend including seeing the DaHonays and Marina at a campground in Mission Bay and our discovery of Sweet Tea Vodka. Victoria gets white trash on us and we all suck at Labor Day traditions.

Daniel presents us all with things he learned from podcasts this week, Butch tells us some stories in a new Lightning Round and of course there’s some sports news including the first Game of The Week for 2009. We think there are far too many sports with US Open tournaments: Soccer, Tennis, Golf, Surfing, Badminton, Snowboarding, Mountain Biking, Supercross and Cycling. After a few jokes and moments of clarity we add in some of our favorite musical discoveries of the summer, some charity work, some great places to enjoy a few drinks and you’ve got yourself a nice long episode without a single article being involved! We do however have just a few links for you. Enjoy tomorrow cause today’s schedule just filled up. One hour, 47 minutes, 37 seconds.

149: The Reverse Sylvia Plath

Holy hell is it ever HOT in Southern California! So hot in fact, that there’s a 150,000 acre wildfire north of Los Angeles. We recorded this episode last weekend when it was a mere 105k. So we discuss that, some issues Victoria has with CNN Headlines, some strange things that dead people have left their loved ones (or not) and of course how could we leave out Chula Vista winning the Little League World Series! That’s right, Park View Little League, the Pride of Gregg Rogers Park in our hometown has taken home San Diego’s first title since the Gulls won the Taylor cup back in 2003.

Victoria reviews two completely different movies in “Ninja Cheerleaders” and “Bye Bye Birdie” and explains why both are supposedly so damn good or something. We briefly buzz over the new CD by Dennis Haskins and why he looks so much like a certain canuck I know. We go over a few comments from listeners and debate over the atmosphere in a sporting venue and just how much abuse an away team fan should expect from home fans. We ask you all to explain just why girls squeal, cry and faint at hot singers and why it is guys don’t.

To round out the last third of the show, we discuss some of the do’s and don’ts of apologizing to your lady, Victoria brings us another great Awesome List and we end it all off with the 15 biggest mistakes we make while drunk. It’s 74 minutes of cool crispness. Dive into it.
