#19 – Allagash Curieux and The Avett Brothers

27 Sep

The first of two episodes with the irrepressible Blake Tyers. Things we know about Blake:

    1. He has a deep, sexy voice and articulates himself very well
    2. He knows a lot about beer
    3. He knows a lot about music

Based on these items, Blake will not be invited back because WHO THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE IS coming in here and showing us up like that. GOOD DAY, SIR.

  • The phrase smell baby will be added to the list right underneath anal metal.
  • We have our first official sponsor! Blake’s friend Carlen brought a bottle of Allagash Curieux to the last Tall Brown brew night. It ended up not being drank/drunk/drinked that night, so we annexed it for the podcast. Curieux is not cheap, so thanks, Carlen!
  • Speaking of thanking the sponsor, we got so exited about it that we peaked all the mics around the 16:41 mark.
  • At the end of the song, around 11:56, SOMEONE’S cell phone is too close to something, and the result is about 30 seconds of cell phone morse code. I tried every which way tp edit around it, but no dice. These are some of the things you have to deal with when you live in the future.
  • At some point near the end, I mention that 875 cases of Curieux would constitute something like two semi-trailers. I have no idea if this is even remotely true. Google isn’t much help either. Someone in the industry tell us how many cases go into a full 18-wheeler shipment.

Also, first new episode posted on the new site! Please let us know what you think. Stream the episode below. We are on iTunes. You have no excuses.

    Your introductory banter = classic.

    Bubbles…. on …… balls. NOTE: There are more awkward pauses in here than in 20 episodes of The Office. This is a beautiful thing.

    I have liked all Allagashes I’ve ever tried, so adding this one to my wishlist. Avett Bros – I agree with Russ on intonation-or-funky-chords in there. That pushed me from “it’s okay” to “dig it!”.

    TONY LOVES CARLY RAE. That is all.

    “I’m surrounded by nerd morons.”

    Review Botch next. The world needs to hear what Russ thinks about Botch.
