322: When in Rome

We recorded this Andrea while Daniel was recovering from a cold. We reminisce about Unniversary weekend, including their time in an escape room, Jim & I at brunch and Study Pony Karaoke on Friday night. Not to mention the greatest food spread in Unniversary history. Victoria and Andrea escaped to this “rezzert” in Mission Bay called Paradise Point for a few days. We enjoy a beer just in time for Victoria to get into her second favorite hotel pasttime: snarking on shitty TV. Namely, Lifetime dramas. Oh yeah, drop your pants and gather the kids for a good wholesome family poop commercial.

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.

283: We’ve Lived Too Wrong For Too Long

Butch joined us again 3 weeks ago for another one of those shows. Yes, I really need to get more timely with my editing. I do apologize. Anyways, this is a tasting episode. We have beers we love and some we don’t care for so much. Okay, to warn we really are quite harsh to one of them. Apologies to the dear loving friends who shared them with us. We also have another Doritos Mystery Bag tasting and some odd sodas.

Trips to Arcana Brewing and Off-The-Tracks Brewery went pretty well and we drove an Iron Fist through our brains with a flavours we hadn’t thought about with beer but why not? The NFL Draft comes up briefly but not so much to bore the non-sports fans. We’re more kind here.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa has stairs? This confuses some of those in the audience. Also Pisa not being in Rome also confuses some of us. Can we get Richard Digits III, Esq on this please? No? Too busy chasing roosters, maybe? Again, I swear we’re not being hateful. I feel like these show notes are making me repeat this. Here let me make it better, the forcefulness of Daniel’s ejaculation is brought up. Okay, I’m not making it better. Let’s just move on.

We make an official a call for Church of Awesome strippers. You can apply in person or just email us a video. Speaking of peeling off ones underthings, Tom Jones’ still got it. So does the U.S.S. Midway. Maybe he’s a vampire? Perhaps the Midway is the Hellmouth? Who knows but it makes sense, doesn’t it?

This leads to two seconds of mourning Community before jumping into the awesomeness of food; specifically, Fogo de Chao. If you have one in your city, GO. Churrascaria often leads one close to gastronomic suicide. This fact leads us to create the Brewnut Challenge: pairing great San Diego beers with the signature donuts at the best shops in San Diego. Oh, and Butch had some awesome tacos at this place called Puesto or something. We end with more beer tales and send you on your way.

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!

276: I Would Turn Her Into A Girl Snork

As always happens when Butch happens, this runs long; like an hour 46 long.This episode starts with pink eye and corncob pipes. We have two eyes and two lungs. We only need one of each, right? Okay so survey #1 of the episode is Spongebob: pitcher or catcher? Either way, we know the Snorks are great at oral sex, hence the show title. Beer of the Week starts with a Bootlegger’s beer and Stochasticity Project.

 

Cinnamon cannot be contained by one box. This of course brings us to discussing Ellen Page. Victoria is obsessed with Animal Crossing. Yes, still. Insert awkward segue to Valentine’s Day. It was one of our favorite Valentine’s Days of all time. We hit Brabant Cafe, the Stone store in South Park, Station Tavern, and Eclipse Chocolate before seeing a NOT funny Brian Regan at Balboa Theatre. We did like the opening act.

 

Ask A Black gives us survey #2 is Victoria racist if she dresses up like K.C. and JoJo? No. You should dress up as KC and find a white chick with a big ass. Butch brings up the fact that Dick Van Dyke is one of the best TV shows of all time. Everyone should also watch Pete Seeger: The Power of Song. There are also awesome biographical documentaries on Johnny Carson and Mel Brooks to watch as well.

 

Butch contributes to the show by introducing us to SochiOnTinder.tumblr.com and that which is sexual debauchery that is the Olympic Village and our idea to monetize this. This brings survey #3: What Olympic sport breeds the best lovers? This oddly has nothing to do with the segue into Butch discussing his birthday weekend…or what he remembers of it. Think “Wrecking So Close” followed by “You’re the One That I Want In the Next Episode” and then “Psychosocial Baby” at Midnight. You can get the Tribute Mix and some cool playlists of tunes on Butch’s 8Tracks page. Also check out his “Best Coast Bias” posts on The Wrestling Blog and occasional posts on TWiB once it gets going full on again.

Also, go check out Victoria’s other podcast with Andrea, Clusterpop along with lushrain.com for her blog. Daniel still has a blog going at Uncast.Tumblr.com with hopes of it growing up to be a real boy on WordPress one day. Oh and GIVE US A CALL! 619-940-4SEX

275: Moustachioed Pistachios

Have you ever liquified a nut? Yeah this is a few weeks old but still somewhat relevant? Daniel is on fire and his “stupid” abounds! We talk briefly about the Super Bowl game itself but since it was over after the first play from scrimmage, we spend more time discussing the commercials and halftime show.

After 30 minutes, we get to beer. This week, it’s a new San Diego brewery called 2Kids Brewing. Check them out. We try a new twist on a previously reviewed beer with the Brewmaster’s Edition of Gulden Draak. Did we like it? Hint: We liked it better than Cinnamon keeping us up at night but not as much as Victoria loves Animal Crossing. Sweet ta tas! That’s a very strange fetish. Facebook games and 3DS games: do you do them?

So apparently Transformers movies are still being made. Now we get Dinobots. With the racist way that Jazz was portrayed, I wonder if they’ll try to recreate the Grimlock voice from the original cartoon series. We discuss our thoughts on the loss of Phillip Seymour-Hoffman, his career and the tragic reality of those who lose their lives to addiction. This also leads us to a really cool Academy Awards documentary we watched after the Super Bowl.
