313: Two-Beer Victoria

After 2 beers, Victoria needs food not hockey. We skip a Gulls game to record this for you guys and we’re happy with our decision. 43-45 BC were one year because it’s a fucking mess in Rome, 440 days a year. Victoria has to wait 9 months for arancini because…she got a little um, excited last time and now she’s pregnant. That is, if she doesn’t die in Paris first. We go quickly through the first two beers of the week. Through this, we learn true love is eating a demon baby out of your stomach. Victoria says the movie Lucy is shit and Kanye has gone cray but Jay-Z is not, nor is Beyonce.
Scary movies are scary. Deadpool is NOT a family movie but Victoria somehow makes it more juvenile. That said we both have shit show movies we just have to watch: Gods of Egypt and Eddie the Eagle. Why not combine them? Wonder Twin powers activate! Beer of the Week #3 make us ask, “Hey Australia; what’s with the green and gold as your national colors? Not good enough to be on your flag but good enough for everything else?” We’ll leave you with this happy thought: CGI Paul Walker will never die.

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.

308: I Don’t Need a Challenge In My Mouth

Come join us in our 2 hour, 40 minute punk rock beer fest. You may learn something. We sure did.*

We start right off with a one-item Awesome List, Hamilton. I know, it’s the trendy musical right now but it’s worthy. Trust me. We discuss the germ magnets that are coins. Victoria teaches us that Soundwave is a hipster. We discuss some of the beers we’re about to taste and initially title the episode, “Crossing Streams” but then the actual title came along and ended that real quick.

We quickly discuss some Ottawa memories like Mill St Brewery (a new InBev addition), Pub Italia, and Hop City’s Barking Squirrel Lager. Oh and we braved Safehouse again, after the Rachel incident of 2015. Somehow Philip Rivers’ virility comes up somehow and how he fills up his 20 room mansion.

After trying our first beer, Brandon and Victoria reminisce about UK food and drink. We had some great Big Dog beer and hat tip to Bob Barnes for providing it to Brandon who shared it with us. Hat tip as well, to Dave Otto for the last batch of awesome beer he made for Big Dog’s Brewing.

Daniel and Brandon talk about how they met, starting with a burger review and culminating in a Beer to the Rescue event. It’s so emotional, Daniel censors himself. Brandon covers the mistake by bringing up the Redskins/Braves racial team names issue. Is it complimentary or derogatory. What do you think?

We start in on a bit of history and then on to beer #2! Before we get into that, a bit of insider info on upcoming new BevMo beer shelf organization. Once the San Diego beer talk starts, well dear listener, it ain’t going to end for a while. This includes some personal plugs for Alesmith and Victoria chasing 15 year old girls while carrying a glass of sangria, then having an epic moment in Arizona for Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, we visited the awesome DaHonays for their epic Halloween festivities. This included visits to The Perch Pub & Brewery for great beer and disappointing tots, Angel’s Trumpet Alehouse for beer and crispy spam sliders with hawaiian bread, sriracha mayo, feta cheese and cranberry slaw, The Lost Leaf Bar & Gallery which may be the strangest bar/music venue/art gallery fusion venue I’ve ever been to (though the Rinkuškiai Werewolf Ale I had from Lithuania was amazing), and closing out Mother Bunch Brewing by helping them blow their IPA keg (yeah I said it) even if they aren’t up for treating beer kegs with respect (allegedly). They did have an amazing brew process mural in the hallway to the restrooms.

We saw King Diamond recently and I play clips of Abigail and Halloween under the conversation as we discuss man buns and mosh pit etiquette. Somehow we follow this up with the great The Peanuts debate. Does it offend you? Do you feel bad for Charlie Brown?

227: Waist Up Until I Tell You To Stand Up

We come at you from all sides this week. Victoria has issues with lyrics, The DaHonays bring us “Marinade” and we rate it, we talk a bit of history and politics and then comes the sad news of a couple recent deaths. RIP Heavy D & Joe Frazier. We discuss transporting Rhian’s cat from Ottawa to San Diego.

RHIAN IS GOING TO THE MAYO CLINIC!!! You’ve all heard her interview on episode 206 and this trip could be her last chance at real treatment that could make a real positive difference. We have set up a fundraiser to help cover the costs for her so PLEASE DONATE or share if you can’t donate: http://www.giveforward.com/jointherhiarmy and send a little love to Rhian by helping to pay for treatment that could really improve her quality of life.

Daniel brings a few articles championing San Diego’s “Craft Cocktail” scene. We’ve already beaten the rest of the world at craft beer, now watch us kick ass with hard liquors. Rhian brings to our attention the continued existence of telephone chat lines. Victoria has a new Game Show idea called “Snatch For Catch”. Surprisingly we transition that into the Duggar family and our rant on this bullshit. When is enough, enough? We also ask at what age or point is it inappropriate to have sex with your child in the room? This awkwardsly leads into Whore News where we learn that coal miners (NOT Minors) need love too. We wrap things up in 1 hr, 6 min, 53 sec.

117: The Pubic Wars

This is our longest episode in a while at 1:45:43. in fact, it’s so long we didn’t even include a “What I Learned From TV This Week” or outro music. That’s right. No outro music. How sad is that. So when Victoria says “Fuck You Lance Burton”, that’s it. It’s done. That’s all you get. Sad huh?

Topics this week we discuss the 10 most forgettable presidents, the Punic wars, The Oscars, Victoria’s fun at a recent Rev concert and one little girl who’s parents deserve the smack down her teacher let the kids give her.

Also, don’t forget! We have Unniversary II: Ecclectic Cockatoo coming March 14th at Casa de Uncast. Be there or…well…I guess listen to it later like you usually do. I’m just saying you’ll be missing out on the good booze and food. Email us at uncast.net@gmail.com for more information if you’re interested in attending the event live.

115: Spoiler Alert! The Jew Gets It In The End

This week it’s us alone discussing stupid song lyrics, the Super Bowl and it’s crazy ads as well as the San Diego Zoo’s new food & drink policy. We discuss why the city doesn’t want your help, two examples of why old women shouldn’t be allowed to drive and 10 movie endings that got spoiled by history. Victoria comes at us with a short What I Learned On TV This Week segment and more than plenty movie reviews. Enjoy all this and more in an hour and 25 minutes.

Articles of the week:
You can’t bring food and drink in the zoo and it’s your own fault
Stop sweeping the snow, it makes us look bad

Top 10 Movie Endings Spoiled by History

097: Can I Lick It To Make Copies?

Becky’s birthday including sushi, cake, beef boxty, Irish music and Pinkberry. Victoria entertains us with random insertions of Bruce Springstein. Daniel has an issue with a sign on new copiers at work. Join the Donut/Bacon campaign for 2008. Victoria brings us an awesome list that no one can take seriously.

We recap the game of the week, come up with a new one and Victoria complains about Jeff Reed. There’s a history lesson in hobos and if Dick Cheney is a zombie, would you rather he take you from behind or eat your brains? For those not grossed out by the thought, Martha Stewart likes long weiners. We end the episode with a story of an accident with tweezers.

As of the release of this episode, Uncast #100 has been recorded but we are still taking audio messages for the show. Send them in to uncast.net@gmail.com and if we get it before the show is finalized, we’ll include it. Take care and slainte! This only took us 49 minutes, 27 seconds.
