181: I Need Help!

Victoria starts this show right off by assuming she has the power to kill celebrities. This week: Harvey Pekar. Then she blames it on LeBron leaving Cleveland. We segue from that to a stream of conscience hair metal conversation stemming from some more lyrics Victoria has a problem with. This week: Poison’s “Something To Believe In”.  We also learn why we need to either keep brownies away from Victoria or we need to record when she has them.

Victoria decided she needs a minion for Sloth Sundays. She thinks about giving Cinnamon opposable thumbs, having kids, hiring teens, buying a servant boy. We discusses the newest experiment from Carl’s Jr and how disgusting it sounds. The World Cup is over and apparently the team of hot models won. Who’d have known? Victoria gives us a list of things to help us cope with the end of the World Cup.

Victoria has an awesome list! This one includes Comic-Con discussions and reading among a various amount of other things. Victoria reviews two movies she saw recently: Get Him To The Greek and AdventureLand. Daniel comes in with some things he learned from podcasts, we go over mummies and zombies (AGAIN) for those who still need help and we talk about our Fourth of July celebration. We each recommend a few things for you all to check out and end the show with some more Church of Awesome ideas.

180: Fuck Your Face

We have Rachel and Victor on the show this week! Yeah, we’re just now releasing an episode from our birthday weekend. Rachel even calls us out on it. I swear I will get better about that. Please forgive some of the sound quality (sudden volume changes and heavy breathing) as we were having a bit of a problem getting the mics to behave.

We start out with Rachel being a fripple. We somehow segue that into women not understanding baseball and numbers and hidden ball tricks don’t work with purses and shoes. We go into Victor’s thoughts on his first trip through PETCO Park and the lack of communication about other events going on in the ballpark at the same time. PETCO Park is thus given a new nickname by Victoria: Douchebag Stadium.

Somehow we get sidetracked to our exHalf-Mormonism and the girls take the show off the rails for a moment before the girls propose leaving Uncast to do their own show, so I may be doing auditions soon for a new co-host. Supposedly, being 500 miles apart, they’d do a 4 hour show every day. When that happens, Uncast will have retired 3 times like Michael Jordan and come back to rock the house Favre style every time.

Going back to baseball, there’s some ballpark talk about location and attraction of a park and Fenway Park comes up. We also get into upper deckers and the Philly Phanatic. Another awkward transition to reverse vampires. Victoria is going to Comic-Con and trying to touch Nathan Fillion without getting arrested. Add to that the nearly endless list of other hot geek-fan legends that will be there, the Glee Panel, the Merlin panel and the screening of “Once More With Feeling” and I may have to mop Victoria off the Convention Center floor.

We jump into REALLY OLD World Cup News: Rachel loves vuvuzelas, before getting into even older news…the games. More numbers means Victoria is more confused. She is into the Spanish footballers and thinks the Nigerians are also cute but afraid of the scams they’d pull.

We discuss birthday weekend with the San Diego International Beer Festival, the birthday party, some brewery visits and awesomeness. First, is it so hard to make the servers you hire at your festival know at least enough about the beers they’re serving? It was great seeing Jim Crute again at Lightning Brewery and we always enjoy their beers. Ballast Point gave Victoria smiles with their smoked ale. Zocalo Grill gave us an AWESOME dinner and then there was the party.

Victoria’s bubble bar idea was a smash hit and Porn Of Fortune is a fun party game. Of course Tings came out and we had to play a few rounds of that. Victor enjoyed the bourbon bacon ice cream and it got him nice a cozy. The party went out to the patio while four of us kinda crashed out early and Vudell crashed out for the second time in three years. Victor goes on about his excitement over the iPhone 4 and it’s kinda cute so check it out. We hit up Studio Diner for brunch and learn that a huge ass burrito is the best thing when you’re hungover.

Victoria goes into a rant and tirade about the LeBron James situation and we learn after the show that Jay-Z is actually part owner of the New Jersey Nets and not the New York Knicks. Finally ending on the three wise men and saying goodbye after an hour, 15 minutes and 29 seconds.

179: No Homo

This was recorded June 21st! Hurray us for getting shows out..on..time..or not. Hey! Rhian from Audiobuzzed joins us to celebrate! The Victoria is too Posh tonight. We discuss the latest episode of The Boondocks and the way Tyler Perry got torn to shreds by Aaron McGruder. The area surrounding Rhi has gotten some visitations by large animals and we don’t mean Big Jim. In literary news, we learn that “meece” or “meese” has nothing to do with moose or mice. No matter what Urban Dictionary says. We also discuss kangaroos and whether they can punch their own stomachs. VERY interesting indeed!

We truly enjoyed this week’s Beer of The Week: Stone’s 14th Anniversary Emperial IPA. Victoria has decided to eliminate card giving at work. Everyone just writes the same shit in every card so it’s not really that personalized. She did get some awesome gifts from Becky, though. Meanwhile, I had one of the best Birthdays EVER! Want to know? LISTEN TO THE SHOW!!! We have a bevvy of calls to the Uncast Line just as we’re getting into a little question: Does every vampire series need to include werewolves ever since Underworld came out?! True Blood has ’em, The Gates has ’em, The Twilight Series has ’em and we’re getting sick of them.

Rhian brings a bit of whore news with the MuchMusic Awards which were held in mid-June. We wonder why Canadian musical acts can’t show up to a Canadian Music Awards show. We wonder why the fuck a 17-year old girl is walking around in a skirt/dress without underwear on. We spend a long time shitting on a number of celebrities from the Awards show. Of course there’s World Cup news long long behind the now and we end with Vivi’s story from a ballgame including a review of the Proper Gastropub in San Diego. We do all this in 61:52. CALL US at 619-940-4SEX or comment at uncast.net! We miss hearing from our listeners!
