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!

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.

304: Hitler Karaoke

It’s time for Karaoke of the worst kind! Tonight, we start off with Victoria right out of the gate. Hope you enjoy! Our first beer of the week brings us back to summers on the farm with chickens, except none of us have been on a real farm. Rachel likes the idea of horses but not the real deal. Apparently, keeping sloths as pets would also be out.

After the first beer, we start in with Rachel plugging shit, starting with Bad Lip Reading videos on YouTube. This discussion also includes a bit of confession session with Rachel. There is some talk of the Cat Convention, and how MMA is more hugging than fighting.

Daniel and Victoria went to Utah and they talk about their trip. There was coffee shops, an aquarium, breweries, a ballgame, Park City, and good food. Spending time with family was very enjoyable and though we did a lot, we came home feeling like we had a week of relaxation.

Victoria has a great idea to put beer in an insulated pouch like container like Capri-Sun. Speaking of beer, we had one of the worst beers we’ve had to drink in a long time on this show. Thankfully, we have an awesome list to follow this up. Oh and someone finally had the courage to call the Uncast drunk dial line! So we’ll end it there after 94 minutes!

285b: Meatloaf Farts

Starting off the next half, let’s just say this bottle of Stone Cali-Belgique was not what we remembered. The NBA and NHL Finals just ended and we discuss. Why? Because why the hell not. Miami has an interesting mascot, the Habs cartoon description is a bit interesting, and this is where Victoria stops paying attention, hence the title. Here is the link.

The Ballad of Raft Fucker continues. If you don’t watch Game of Thrones, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU!?! I swear there’s no corelation between those two things. It just happened. (HSFE) HODOR. Mad Men is fucking awesome as well. Watch that too.
Vivi went to two concerts in the same week: Lady Gaga and Wanda Jackson. We learned a few things. First, Vivi says no to pants whiskey. Second, alcohol doesn’t really burn her anymore. Before Wanda Jackson, we went out to the Aero Bar for scotch tasting. SO MANY CHOICES! Spicy maple bacon mixed nut brittle. Make it happen. It keeps away the green puppies. Or something. I don’t know. I was at church.

Victoria tells the tale of the drug cat song she sang for Cinnamon. And you doubt TD4W?! Speaking of, Victoria came with an Awesome List. El Gran Viaje del Senor Caca? and quick note, Butch (DJ BrotherDarkness) is now known as @TheButchRosser on twitter and not the old name he gives on the show.

279: Universary 7

It’s a German Sparkle Party! We did get our German noms on and there’s lots of beer, including local delicacies by Belching Beaver, Mother Earth, and Manzanita.

We discuss the pre-party fun, including the new Veronica Mars movie. In short, if you loved the series, you’ll love the movie. If you never watched it, it doesn’t exactly hold up as a feature film. It’s more like a long TV episode. If you don’t like Veronica Mars, FUCK YOU.

Becky loves Kristen Bell. Butch is property of K. Bell. Well, this is awkward. To break the tension, Bex suggests Anna Kendrick and Kristen Bell dressed up like Tinkerbell. Vivi wants Mexico pics of Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza. Everyone watch House of Lies too, k?

God invented the freeway to get to the threeway. This leads to offensive nostalgia and what’s a casingle? This is where the beers of the week reviews go. Nelly goes over 70 hours straight. The Daily Show rips off our Pon de Floor bit! WTF, John Stewart?! Mitch can send his cheques to Major Lazer and John can send his #McConnelling cheques to us.

Axe the audience time! We ask our in-house guests all the questions that our audience has ignored over the last year. We now introduce you to Pass Lannister, Prince Penguino Penis of the Pantheon , My Nigga Targaryen, the wildling King Douchebag, Chief Motherfucker Bolton, the the white walker formerly known as Vivi Playah Awedizzle Doctor Turtle Esquire, Bex the Specks of Bag End, Penis Lannister, Mr. Penis Lannister, and Lord God of House Royce.

We all feel Victoria’s Tolkien wrath. Why? Because Spongebob is the catcher. Also because she’s racist. Let’s balance that out. We have an Awesome List from everyone.

278: You Might Have A Tongue In Your Penis

Daniel survived and Johnny Depp wishes he was Ironborn. Starting the show right off with Game of Thrones discussion. This turns into a debate about being a geek about superficial things and researching comparable real-life subjects. Then there’s arguing over dragon before we get to the first beer of the week, Aztec Brewing’s Hibiscus Wheat Ale.

 

First question to YOU: where did circumision start? Why the penis? Couldn’t we have just shown our commitment to God by cutting off a digit or an ear, like van Gogh? Yes, I just called God a hooker. Speaking of hookers, Russia invaded Ukraine and we discuss holding off judgment on that or not. We’ve obviously learned more since this was recorded. This leads to talk of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight. Do it weird you out as much as it does us?

 

Beer of the week numero dos is Bayhawk Ales Chocolate Porter. We don’t like it. Move on. San Diego celebrated Burger Week and Happy Hour Week earlier this month. Go get you some! Beer number three is Clown Shoes Beer Vampire Slayer Imperial American Stout. Victoria rounds out the show with a new Awesome List.

 

Universary is in a couple of days! Friday March 14, we’re doing Blind Lady Ale House at 2pm, then CPK, and then the Veronica Mars movie! Saturday is Universary and the party starts at Belching Beaver North Park at 12:30pm and Hess Brewing North Park after. Then meet us at Casa de Uncast at 7pm!

269: Pussy Dragon

This episode is brought to you by the letter A and the number 5! Andrea joins us and we get right down to it. While the early episode is a bit NSFL, the rest of the episode is worth keeping your lunch down. It’s autumn and that means white chick heaven: all things pumpkin. On Uncast, this means a plethora of pumpkin ales.

Mid-September through Mid-October was full of epic activity. We start with Daniel epic fail at the San Diego Festival of Beer. The mantra of the night was, “give it to Daniel, he’ll drink anything!” That’s me, the Liquid Mouth Slut. Let’s just say it didn’t end well. Props to the Dahs for not letting him drive and hosting him in their posh hotel room.

Victoria follows the same road a week later during Scotch and CAH (Cards Against Humanity) and we may never be allowed in The Local again. The car will certainly never forget that night. Yeesh.

The following weekend, we start off with epic breakfast at Bonnie Jean’s Soul Food and Monkey Paw Pub and Brewery. This is where we split. Daniel and Butch head to Hamilton’s Tavern and a great night with an old friend. Thanks to Porsha for an epic dinner and even more epic breakfast.

Meanwhile, Victoria and Andrea have a great couple of days together, including a seeing Travis in concert, followed by a great brunch at Westgate Hotel and beer. At the same time, the Casa Crew enjoy 14 hours of football and two baseball playoff games. Daniel, Victoria and Andrea then meet up for Burger Lounge, which is one of the best burgers in San Diego.

Beer number two takes a while to grow on you. Drink a few sips, wait a bit, drink a bit more and then each drink will taste better the last. This somehow gets into our fear of the medical system and we end with Victoria’s epic Awesome List!
