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!

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.

292: The Sweet Smell of Peppermint

Recorded on November 29th and releasing it December 11th. We ask some very important and disturbing questions about Santa. Answer as you will. Just be assured Victoria is trying to ruin the Winter holidays for everyone.

Victoria returns from Londontown and Daniel regails us with tales from his two weeks alone…or was he? Well there was all day beer runs and all night meat. Not as dirty as it sounds but one of those was protested by PETA. Props to San Diego Bottle Share and S&M Sausage & Meat! All that and I came out of the two weeks addicted…to…Skyrim. Yes. Skyrim.

We drink pumpkin ales and talk Thanksgiving. Daniel has what hopes to be his only bad trip to San Francisco and seriously, that Peppermint tho.

260: Drunk Cosbys Strike Again

We start the show off with both of us drunk to the nines. Victoria went to Italy (Milano, Firenze, Roma & Torino) and describes all the sights and sounds but mostly the smells and tastes. Rome isn’t built up, it’s built out; like Los Angeles…or Cass Elliot who is a little less built out now. We start out with a very tasty Italian beer that Vivi brought home. Daniel is ungrateful. We move on to a decent dinner at Slaters 50/50 and Hamilton’s Tavern which had an awesome Stone takeover night going. Less than ten minutes in and Vivi is almost gone.

 

Daniel discusses shit he dealt with while Victoria was gone. There was the negatives (Ottawa drama, incessant Cinnamon, depression) and the positives (Urbn Coal-Fired Pizza, Mother Earth Brewing, Brochella, Distiller’s Outlet in Poway). Vivi tunes him out and Daniel gets butt-hurt and this brings out the Drunk Cosbies and the end of Part One.

 

We come back and start off our last hour of the show by drinking more beer. We might have a problem. I hear that’s one of the steps to something. I don’t care. Vivi gets into the Eurovision competition which Daniel does not understand quite at all. There was a vampire, a cute Danish girl, boring Hungarians and lots of weirdness. Vivi loved a Finnish song.

 

This moves us to the third beer of the week and if Drunk Cosbys wasn’t enough, My Little Pony talk will send you over. Daniel tries to help by talking about sports but the only thing that truly saves us is an Awesome List, which starts awkward and gets awesome quick. Enjoy!

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!

252: The HOV Lane

Rhian is back! YES she is back in a full capacity and we talk about my trip to Ottawa, how she’s feeling, her birthday, Christmas and lots of beer. There’s a list of unsexy sex stories from The Huffington Post and Victoria asks the ultimate Helen Keller question: Would she be a good prostitute?

243: The Four My Little Ponies of The Apocalypse

This week we miss Rhian for many reasons. She’s left the Casa and she had to miss recording this episode with us as she’s dealing with some pretty serious stuff at the moment. We hope to have her back on the show as soon as possible. In the meantime, you get us, mwahahaha! We start right off as you’d expect, at the beginning. No seriously, we talk about the apocalypse. Do zombies have to be involved? You decide. Beer of the week is taken Wookey style. We drank of it and tasted that it was pretty hoppily awesome!

We discuss our recent Ottawa trip, returning Rhian to her home country and enjoying the city’s wonders. Victoria gives us an Awesome List and then it gets ugly. Jason Statham ugly. Victoria reviews “The Italian Job” and talks a bit about a couple other movies or something. I get into the Euro 2012 soccer tournament and yes I’m bitter about the outcome. Whatever. There’s a bit of hipster hate and we clear up the myth that I think Arcade Fire and Nickelback are in any way comparible. We end the show with a new game that (as usual) Vivi loves and I do not.
