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.

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.

281: Beats By God

Butch joins us yet again and this is the love episode. Love of Game of Thrones and beer brought us to the SD Tap Room and we had a nice evening with a couple of cool ladies. Victoria has Z-BRO-tolerance but talking geek with Kate and her friend, made them disappear. While waiting, we enjoy some beer at the Barrel Republic (who mostly stole Bear Republic’s logo) and learn what the “Gaslamp Strip Club” of beer would look like.

Karaoke anyone? Let’s set that shit up on Chromecast and enjoy it with cheap beer. Uber has Victoria so smitten, Lyft is gonna have to go places to win her over. Anyone got 5 cents? Ellie Goulding’s thighs could give you the best makeover ever. Oh and thighs are totally hot.

MORE BEER!

We create new beers for Societe Brewing thanks to a Coronado Brewing barleywine. More beer? Cake crotch!

MEHR BIER!

Ghost breweries? We don’t mind. We’re trying to hit 100+ breweries by the end of 2014 and we discuss 5 of them in this episode alone. Looks for the links at the bottom of the notes here. Poor House has a panty dropper, Hillcrest has a chandelier, Butch is a holy man, Plan 9 doesn’t brew yet, Dos Desperados has yoga, and Acoustic Ales will make you sing.

Butch and Daniel discuss new a new racist fusion restaurant. Naturally, this leads to the way Victoria is. She knows why the caged bird sings, and she gave it to Freyja. So that happened. Daniel went to SM2Dub (Social Media Marketing World) and met some cool people.

MOAR BEIR!

We streamed Homechella (thanks again, Aldo) all weekend thanks to Chromecast, and enjoyed beers and games. Grab your favorite bong, pucker up and turn the volume to eleven. Sexy Cat? Sexy cat. Are Bastille just a better Imagine Dragons? Does Ellie Goulding’s thighs beat all? Are Arcade Fire the new Nickelback? Who would you have in your Coachella list? We each give 7 acts for our Unchella. We somehow end the show talking about the phaedra complex and sparkle hobos. Rule 34 continues. 95 minutes of awesome for you.

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.

262: Feast, Ale and Music

Butch joins us this week and we discuss everything from Game of Thrones to beer to music, music and more music. There’s more nostalgia than you can shake a ring pop at and we bring back “Ask A Black Dude” just for the fun of it.

258: Baron von Geeks

After Victoria gets us started with a jaunty tune, we ask what title (Lord, Baron, Princess, Captain, Doctor, etc) you would most want to go by? This moves us to the beer of the week which is a magical high ABV beer by The Lost Abbey. We discuss the zombie apocalypse, because that topic hasn’t been overdone to death. Victoria talks about her upcoming trip to Italy and Daniel talks about Unniversary weekend and the beautiful Celebration of Rhian’s life. We close up with the results of Daniel’s Game of Thrones/MLB Tournament of Champions. Just over an hour. Enjoy!
