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.

311: It’s Like Caligula For Children

This is our first recorded episode of 2016. Creed makes God cry. Victoria gets upset because a Buzzfeed Quiz told her she’d fail 4th grade science. Facebook trending topics are ridiculous. For example, are German people racist for buying Mein Kampf? Guess where the Kardashian loving Vivi sides on this debate. I’ll give you a hint: Daniel takes a hard “Fuck Cancer” stance, while she takes a softer “it happens, get over it!” approach.

Our search for brown ales continues. The first from Alesmith, is amazing. The second, by Black Market, not so much. This is made up by the new Uncast Winter Cocktail. Want to know how to make it? Listen to the show or call the Uncast Line. Christmas was eventful with a great basketball match and a new favorite cocktail bar, Seven Grand. This follows with Daniel being very adamantly wrong for a second time in the show. It’s kinda awkward how wrong he is.

He does tell a story about a pretty epic day that he and Butch had on December 12th. We ended 2015 with a wonderful night at Becky’s house with great food, drinks, and Cards Against Humanity. We move on to 2016 goals (not resolutions) which includes a great book Becky got for Victoria, Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook which is a book of vegan recipes that have so far been pretty amazing. From food back to beer and on to movies. It’s a natural progression! We enjoyed all three blockbusters we saw this winter: Star Wars The Force Awakens, Hateful Eight, and The Revenant.

310: Dick Jokes and Mind Violence – OMG, I can hear all the spices!

Andrea is in the house and we go through his first experience with Black Friday and Thanksgiving in the States. We move on from family drama to our thoughts of Spectre. Hint: just don’t. We also discuss (at the time) upcoming movies like Star Wars and The Revenant, and we hear what our first thoughts were before 311 when we give our reviews. This goes so well, Andrea goes off on Daniel for his new built rig.

After a brief break, we go through some deep relationship focused discussion. If a mime is alone in the forest, does he make a sound? Why does Victoria hate the penis Peanuts? From there, it’s back to movies and then music. Daniel briefly recounts their night during beer week, and naming beers. He also recounts his day brewing his first ever beer, the aptly dubbed Plan C IPA.

Victoria and Andrea regale us with tales from their trip to Seattle, including Pike Place Market and the EMP. Daniel laments the unfulfillment of his cravings and Andrea picks on Americans for having choices. Victoria talks up Cafe Gratitude and we all make a little fun at the Reverend Hipster Heatfield (misspelling intended) that is the bouncer at The Office Bar. At this point, Victoria gets pretty fed up and we end the episode abruptly, not recording for another 7 weeks.

306: The Bored Identity

Victoria has a confusing epiphany and its name is boredom. What’s your time suck for when productive stuff sounds dull and nothing seems fun? In fact, we recorded this in early August. So this has become a thing. Spreadsheets seem to be Daniel’s thing. Victoria has gotten into makeup lately, and that’s also become a thing. What’s your thing?

First beer of the week after some sushi, brought us “Beltane” and regardless of my own mispronunciation, it was delicious anyways. The brett brings dah funk. Victoria calls it the cilantro of the beer world.

The Pride Parade did not go quite as planned. It was raining, it was pouring, the Gods all came out and they brought all the thunder and lightning. It was one of the best things I’ve ever been a part of. Oh and this was the day that Butch also introduced me to The Balboa Bar & Grill.

Victoria talks about “Ant Man”, “Mission Impossible”, and similar movies that she saw this summer. We then get on to beer #2 and discuss the fun and chaotic Hess Fest 2015 and our hopes for future events. For instance, lines shouldn’t curve into each other and including more high quality local breweries that don’t bottle would be amazing.

Victoria gets a lesson in Targaryens. Are 3-headed dragons a thing? In a thought of complete insanity Victoria asks, what’s your lucky number? To certify the opinion, she shares a recent dream with us.

291: Glitter & Emetophilia

Hey if you think releasing an episode 2 weeks after recording was bad, try a full month. We truly hope that we still have listeners. In fact, let’s do that right now. If you still listen to the show, go to facebook.com/uncast OR email uncast.net@gmail.com and let us know. New meme, more people listen to Uncast than have died in America from Ebola.

Victoria goes through some ideas for Unniversary. It’ll be March 21, 2015. Plan accordingly. No excuses! Unless that excuse is “I don’t listen and I want no part of you and your hoodrat bullshit.” If it’s the latter, we understand. You’re dead to us anyways.

First order of business for Unniversary: bring the most derelict and the most awesome “American” treat you can think of and Andrea will have to try it during Unniversary. Best and worst snack will win a prize of some sort. It’ll be better than an Uncast shirt or a bag of condoms. Unless you’re into that sort of thing. Of course this also starts a conversation about various treats we loved as kids; both American and Mexican. Tamarind, chili, and sugar is awesome.

We went to Tony & Kristen’s wedding and we had an amazing time. My cousins came out to enjoy some beer for a day and after four breweries. Again, a great time was had by all. Shout out to Indian Joe Brewing and Karl Strauss. Also, Lost Abbey Brewing and Belching Beaver Brewing.

Victoria reads us a story about a threeway gone wrong. Not saying what happened but Meat Gin is a thing now. Read that as many times as needed to let it sink in. In the meantime, let’s discuss some Facebook bullshit. Yeah it really could be anything but it’s this shit. Somehow this reminds Vivi of the London Beer Flood.

Glitter is a horrible thing but now you can get pills that make you poop glitter. Victoria wants to shoot glitter into space. Somehow this ties into a semi truck with a naked woman riding in it, that hits a school bus. Guess that state. It did lead to Fitness Swingers. Don’t ask how. Just look it up. Or don’t.

Sportsing! The World Series has been determined but we recorded this when the NLCS had just ended. It was a fairy tale series of Royals vs Giants and in the end, the Marlins won? They’re owned by Jeffrey Loria so they’ll never win. Jeter > Mantle > Olbermann. We just needed to make that clear. Tired of Gawker bullying, Buzzfeed plagiarism, and Deadspin mansplaining? Go to the ClickHole!

Also May 2015 is coming up. Everyone find the best pair of shiny pants for MrDahonay’s next birthday! Speaking of my brofriend, we have beers this week. Also related, in China, a woman’s virginity is worth $5000. WTF people. Also WTF, don’t turn foods I like into dessert. No cappuccino chips. No hot dog flavored snacks. No mac n cheese ice cream. We don’t need no Bertie Bott’s Every Flavored Chip Bowl at Unniversary. Or do we?

288: My Girlfriend, The Internet

Daniel is joined this week by satan and a shark. Lots to go over, since we hadn’t recorded in a while. This includes Comic-Con, Pride Parade, and stupid Facebook games. Oh and beer. We never forget the beer.

Andrea is enjoying our beautiful country. Entry was especially pleasurable. There were movies, concerts, food, beer, and nerds. Daniel ashamedly gets Mario Batalli restaurants confused with Guy Fieri restaurants. We discuss Victoria’s ‘thing’ for wanting to either fuck or marry foods.

Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp was epic fun and Daniel cements his place as the God of San Diego for the weekend. We jump into Comic-Con International week and more epic was in store from HopCon to Wootstock and Sherlocked to the Thrilling Adventure Hour. We even stopped over to meet a famous author and get a book signed or something.

Facebook is pissing us all off. First, there’s this year’s breast cancer awareness game. Then there’s stupid quizzes. Then it’s all up in my business. Let’s get out our rage on some movies. Introducing, Snowpiercer. Hey look! It’s a movie whose porn parody doesn’t need to change names. Then they saw Hercules. We found our porn title. Hercules: Snow Piercer.

285a: Code Magenta 4 What!?

This one went so long, we had to split it into two episodes.

WARNING: This show is full of #TD4W and begins with Victoria taking selfies instead of hosting the show. This is balanced out as the show gets better the longer we go. We visited more breweries this week and we think we’ve found our Official Summer Beer of Uncast for 2014? Don’t agree with us? Then YOU pick somethin!

Victoria creates two brothels and we negotiate deals for said brothels. We discuss the etymology of “The Bees Knees.” Then there’s this thing about this little street taco shop called Puesto. Best tacos in San Diego, awesome tequila (half price when someone scores) and the best rice & beans ever. Even their salsa and chips are worth noting.

Another thing worth noting: Butch has been getting LAID. It’s all in the vibe, law of attraction, and all that stuffs. Speaking of, is there hotel code for when someone leaves the hotel between 3-7am alone who wasn’t alone earlier? Strangely this leads to another Victoria sex worker kickstarter. This one oddly comes “third hand.” New Hobo Code.

What do you do when your name is Crystal Metheny? Listen and find out or click that link there. This of course naturally seques into beer number two, Rough Draft Amber Ale. Who cares about the World Cup? Who are you rooting for? Victoria picks ‘em by hotness. Butch is rooting for Italy (free tequila) and Ghana (cause why not, amiright ladies?) Yeah guess who’s already out by the time this airs.

Moving on, we have Jason Mamoa cast as Aquaman. This naturally segues us into the man who can’t seem to stop getting “intimate” with pool rafts. Does sex with an inflatable doll also constitute a crime? This of course, leads Victoria to a new business idea. This leads to the rest of us washing our brains out with more beer. It’s also where we end part one of this episode.

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.
