Episode Guide

26 Oct

1. I am right brained, which means I want to see all the data at once and identify my own patterns. I love maps.

2. At numerous times since the inception of this podcast, I have wanted to quickly reference a beer or a song or an artist that I know we’ve covered, and I haven’t had a quick way to locate and/or sort the information.


Look up and to the right. Yeah, right there between About and RSS. Permanent link, yo. I will no doubt use this link more than any of our listeners, but its potential to help any interested party quickly reference something we’ve covered in the past should be fairly obvious, you guys.

[I recommend episodes 13 and 20.]

#23 – Boulevard Double Wide and Band of Horses

24 Oct

Kansas City’s own Boulevard Brewing recently arrived in the ATL, so Russ and I ran their double IPA up the flagpole to see if anyone (us) salutes (we did). We actually delved further into the nuances of the recipe than we do with most beers, which you will find either mildly insightful or mostly dumb. We were able to do this because Boulevard shares tons of detailed information about each of their beers on their website. In fact, I will go so far as to say that, for a brewery, Boulevard has one of the most user-friendly websites I’ve seen. Easy to navigate. Lots of information. No stupid designy-for-design’s-sake Flash crap. Good job, Boulevard.

We listen to a track off the latest Band of Horses record Mirage Rock. Russ finds the lyrics lacking. Tony has a hard time finding anything to say other than the music “breathes.” We are boobs.

Also, this:

    Buffalo Chicken Dip
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, boiled and shredded (or 4 12.5-oz cans of chicken breast, shredded, or use the meat from one of those pre-cooked rotisserie chickens, shredded). Actually, it doesn’t really matter. Just acquire about a quart of cooked chicken meat. God.
  • 12 oz. bottle of hot sauce (Frank’s or Louisiana, NOT Tobasco or Cholula or Tapatio, you spaz)
  • Two 8 oz. packages of cream cheese, fatty
  • 16 oz. bottle of Ranch dressing (America!)
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese (or a combination of both)
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    2. Combine the chicken with the bottle of hot sauce and spread in a 9×13-inch baking dish (or any 3-quart baking dish).

    3. In a saucepan, combine the cream cheese and the ranch dressing over low heat until the cream cheese is completely melted and smooth. Pour the mixture evenly over the chicken. Then sprinkle the cheese on top.

    4. Bake uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with celery sticks (and/or other vegetables), tortilla chips or crackers.

#13 – Ruckus Brewing and Old Man Gloom

17 Aug

AKA The episode where Russ uses the “1,000 Suns” metaphor TWICE. It’s fun writing these posts because I get to make fun of Russ and he doesn’t get to respond.

We drink Hoptimus Prime from Ruckus Brewing. The Ruckus website has one of those mind-numbingly frivolous age-check filters with multiple drop down menus on the landing page, BUT kudos to them for pre-loading the menus with a birthday from the 1950s, so all you have to do is click GO. We liked Hoptimus Prime (despite the name), particularly the finish.

The song. Oh, the song. If you’re into it, Old Man Gloom washes over you like a 20-foot tsunami made of the tears of your enemies. If you’re not into it, your name is probably Russ, or you are my wife. Russ is not a fan. Actually Russ’s ranting causes him to say several things that make absolutely no sense. It’s wonderful.

UPDATED: *Remember that time that Tony forget that Russ has the login and password to the tumblr [now WordPress]? Yeah that was awesome. Tony, eat a 1000 dicks. -Russ*
