Uncast 324: Sock Talk

We start right off with Victoria getting a little bit racist. We somehow continue without any deaths and the beer of the week, Daniel’s 3rd brew ever is not bad! How not bad is it? LISTEN TO THE SHOW! We also talk about the ridiculous cost of some designer fashion. We have a fairy tale as told by Bray Wyatt to Edge & Christian somewhere in there. Beer #2 comes out and you’ll have to read the Beer Reviews section or LISTEN TO THE SHOW to find out what it was and what we thought. We do discuss Beer to the Rescue 2017 and how nearly every beer that local breweries made for us, were absolutely amazing.

Victoria has a question for all of you: do handjobs by people who speak sign language count as blowjobs? A lot is learned by watching people masturbate. A lot is learned by attending ballgames. Victoria gives her playback of DragCon LA last month.

Uncast 323: Brew Day

Notes: Come with us on a journey into glorious the land of beer and how to make it. Okay, we won’t bore you with the entire brew process but Tony and Jefferson are here with Daniel to talk about their thoughts on beer, brewing, and brew days in general. While we do this, we’re brewing an American Black Ale that’s meant to be somewhere between a brown and an IPA that’s so dark, it’ll make your mom’s heart seem like a light source in comparison. So sit down with us for about 40 minutes of beer talk and we’ll reward you with beer…talk.

322: When in Rome

We recorded this Andrea while Daniel was recovering from a cold. We reminisce about Unniversary weekend, including their time in an escape room, Jim & I at brunch and Study Pony Karaoke on Friday night. Not to mention the greatest food spread in Unniversary history. Victoria and Andrea escaped to this “rezzert” in Mission Bay called Paradise Point for a few days. We enjoy a beer just in time for Victoria to get into her second favorite hotel pasttime: snarking on shitty TV. Namely, Lifetime dramas. Oh yeah, drop your pants and gather the kids for a good wholesome family poop commercial.

Uncast 320: Choose Your Dick

Recorded the night after The Oscars, we go over some of the awkward events of the evening. The episode itself starts with lots of quotes and soundbites that are all relatively useless. Going from awkward to awesome, check this out. 2017 has become the year of every stitch in the fabric of existence has become politicized but Lin-Manuel Miranda has three major projects going at the same time, so that EGOT will be his, I tell you!

On other topics, there’s music to be had, including the Grammys, a year full of metal, and musicians that have maybe become stretched a little too thin or have formed into marshmallows. As we enjoy sipping a tasty Green Flash beer, Victoria searches for Beauty & The Beast soup pots. Oh the conflicting emotions of pet ownership.

We get through beer number two (barely) and lighten up the dark mood with some Mario Kart. The question we have for everyone is this: Who is worse? Waluigi or Donkey Kong? Just when you think the episode is over, Victoria brings up eggplant cookie cutters. Prepare yourselves, folks.

319: Cucks and Golden Snowflakes

It’s the years of [bullet] shells and [special little] snowflakes. We discuss how epically 2017 has started already. If you thought we were going to put 2016 to bed, 2017 has decided it’s a pissing contest. Victoria talks about how cuckholds are going to “take it back” from the alt-right before transitioning smoothly into makeup. This brings us to toys of our parents which, of course, leads to Trivial Pursuit. What’s your favorite version?

In the 80s? Don’t mind if we do but let’s talk drugs. First, just say no and next what determines whether you did crystal, crack, or cocaine? More loving childhood memories include horror movies we were forced to watch. Movies discussed include: Babadook, C.H.U.D., Cujo, Hostel, Poltergeist, Reservoir Dogs, The Eye, The Ring, and The Witch.

The thought of being terrified makes us thirsty and you get a special treat with two excellent and highly-recommended ales this episode: Scaldis Noel and Tough Love 2016. The Golden Globes went fairly well and La lA LA la whatever. Failed jokes lead to discussion with more failed jokes. Victoria goes off on Animal Crossing as we discuss her OCD player character, Mayor Mayor. Daniel is learning to roleplay in Skyrim. Oh yeah, he’s not obsessed with D&D at all. Video games are a lot of shooting of feet and getting stuck. Turn based games are Victoria’s jam!

318: 2016 Learns Foreplay

Dear 2016, thanks for the offer. We’re flattered. We really am but no. We won’t have intercourse with you. Why? Simple: you never learned foreplay. You had one job 2016. One. Anyways we’re back and we’re tackling the myth that 2016 was the worst year on record by pointing out some of the awesomeness that came with the year whether it was trips we took, time together or with other loved ones, karaoke to real musical performances, beer as always plays a role and we have so much more to look forward to in 2017…like U-X: Decade of Debauchery!

317: We’re Back!

Four months between recordings is FAR too long. Y’all can thank our old sound mixer which lived a very long life but finally kicked the bucket. That and Victoria apparently morphed into Donald Trump.

Our beers of the week aren’t enjoyed on the show but were enjoyed with Victoria’s parents at Modern Times Beer, Mike Hess Brewing, and Rip Current Brewing. If not for the amazing food at Boston Pete’s Seafood, Tacos Perla, Streetcar Merchants and the lumpia at Sublime Ale House, we might not have survived the day. Also, shout out to Mike Hess for trolling their customers by using a teal label for their orange wit. Also listen to Daniel use Trump logic when Victoria talks about the previous weekend. So for the beers this episode, we’ll give you the beers we liked most overall this day:

 

  • Modern Times Schwartz (Uncast favorite)
  • Modern Times Blood Orange & Hibiscus Fruitlands (Bart’s favorite)
  • Mike Hess Oktoberhess (Uncast favorite)
  • Mike Hess My Other Vice (Bart’s favorite)
  • Rip Current Delaminator Smoked Doppelbock (Uncast favorite)
  • Rip Current High Surf Helles (Bart’s favorite)

 

Transitions be damned! We move from our beer trip right into wearing socks (or not) with slip-on shoes. Continuing this, we also briefly discuss the awesomeness that is weekend karaoke at Hole In The Wall in San Diego. Flaco makes awesome burgers, Chris puts on an amazing event and we had a great time with mini pitchers of booze and amazing friends.

Daniel talks about his Canada trip very briefly. Not on the show: Vancouver could be my second home if it wasn’t so expensive. Hidden gem there is Japadog, which I sadly missed this trip. Everyone needs to do The Canadian on VIA Rail between Toronto and Vancouver. The amazing views were not a surprise. The spectacular 5-star meals was definitely a surprise. Beer Bistro in Toronto is awesome and can’t wait to do Bar Hop in 2018. Hidden gem there though, is the Avenue Open Kitchen. Ottawa’s Sconewitch is a hidden gem that everyone should go to and keep open until I can get back and then disappear while I’m there. Also awesome, Sir John A Pub and Deacon Brodie’s.

Victoria talks about her Los Angeles trip with Andrea which included the most pretentious grocery store in the world. They saw the Robert Mapplethorpe Exhibit at the LACMA which is definitely worth a visit, when you’re not enjoying the J Paul Getty Museum. Harry Potter World apparently is totally worth any cost and crowd. Becky drove up to join them for this and was chosen for a wand then Andrea and Victoria become the pariahs of Hogwarts. Speaking of Harry Potter, we discuss Pottermore and how we got sorted, found our patronus, were chosen by our wand and more. FUN!

We discuss recent Facebook memes and Victoria’s frustration with a few of them. Is she an elf and faerie or is she a hydra and a Zeus swan? Daniel thinks she just wants to break a piece off of Layla. Victoria is also practically sleepy in every fish. Daniel chooses Don Draper, Peregrin Took and Arthur Dent but the blend of Barney, Nymphadora Tonks, and V from V for Vendetta.

We’re also going to be speaking a lot more about Dungeons & Dragons in forthcoming episodes, since we’ve sort of gotten into it a little bit or a lot. Thanks to Titansgrave and Critical Role for that. Oh and I guess a side-credit to Munchkin which sort of started me down that road. BTW if you have any thoughts that maybe you’re too cool for D&D, check out Critical Role which shows you how the roleplaying, humor, etc can make it pretty fun. Don’t have 3-4 hours a pop to commit? Here’s a few animated shorts, the 20-minute backstory of the group Vox Machina, and this cool one minute intro video to give you an idea. Also, there’s some one-shots and also the HarmonQuest which takes a more comedic parody of it. Lastly, YouTube will bring you back to where you left off on a video. So, watch 30-45 minutes at a time or whatever works for you. If you’re looking to start a campaign yourself, there’s a good series by Matthew Mercer and also the dude he learned from, Matthew Colville. First name similarity purely coincidental. We end with a bit more Harry Potter and then we’re out in 55 minutes!
