Episode 10: Happy Upsy Daisy Best Friends Day

It’s June 8, 2014 and it’s also National Best Friend Day and National Upsy Daisy Day. Nhat is flattered that Tony is spending Best Friend’s Day with him and Tony wants to throw up in his mouth. We both lament that we wish we had known earlier that we were supposed to be more positive for National Upsy Daisy Day. We play some terrible music to try and determine which one of them was the top of the shit heap. The band Harlequin wins by a long shot with their turd, Heaven (Dial 999).  Listen to it HERE, if you dare. Nhat gives up on relationships in general because he has better things to do. Corporate creeps are brought up, Tony’s working (and defending the lives of artists) at the Denver Comic Con, and we talk about weird murder-y people in general.

We started our podcast with Death Angel’s “Ultra-Violence,” so we figured it was fitting to have another Death Angel song on our 10th podcast.. one that we both agree “fucking rocks”… “Discontinued,” from their best album, Act III.

Episode 09 (Part 1): We’re Not Metal Enough

Tony and Nhat cover social media and if it’s fucking people up and dabble a bit in a few metal subjects, but mainly came to the conclusion that they’re not metal enough. Shout out to the Death Metal Dorkery podcast that contacted us last week as they seem to be well metal enough for all of us.

We talk about kids – what are they really good for? Just kidding.. They’re just not really our thing, but more power to you if you have one. Tony realizes that even with his new raise, he can’t afford a heroine addiction and we’re still waiting to hear from a reliable source where to get score some. We’re kidding. No, but seriously… what is Twitter good for if not for that?

Episode 08: Sobriety Sucks

Tony came over sick as a dog, so he decided to do this podcast completely sober, which prompted Nhat to follow suit as well. This is our first sober podcast and it was a bit different, but I think we were actually a little more productive, to be honest. So needless to say, we hated it. Kidding. It didn’t turn out too bad. It’s Tony’s birthday weekend and it wouldn’t be his birthday if something shitty wasn’t going on, so obviously, he had to get sick. We talked about the best gifts we’ve gotten as kids and Tony brought up Shogun Warriors. Nhat’s was Krusher and his Super NES. We see some of the old-time commercials on Youtube, which makes Tony feel older and even shittier than he already does, if that was possible. We review X-men: Days of Future Past and re-review all of the movies we’ve seen this summer up til now, bashing Spider-Man 2 to the bottom once again.

Tony complains about work some more (get used to this) and Nhat brings up his work and then goes on a tangent about changing the entire school system as we know it. We end with doing a new episode of our segment Fictitious Death Metal Album Covers, where Tony selects a Finnish band called Rupikonna Mestaus, which translates into Toad Decapitation. Nhat selects a Brazilian death metal band called Couro Guerra, which means Leather War. Tune into the next episode where we will reveal our terrible covers, complete with song names and band members.

Episode 08: Sobriety Sucks

Episode 07: Tangentron 5000

We have no earthly idea what this particular podcast is about.  We vaguely remember reviewing Godzilla, talking about politics (as if we had anything even remotely intelligent to add to this conversation), wondering how useful the tiny pocket in jeans are, how some people are perpetually locked in their middle or high school heydays, trying to figure out if goiters grow, the longest word in the Oxford-English dictionary, if anyone has actually ever said “woo-hoo!” at a party and just a host of other useless observations.

Episode 06: Shitflix Episode 02

We sacrifice our time and sanity once again to review two more shitty movies in episode two of our Shitflix segment.

Episode 06: Shitflix Episode 02

Nhat assigns Tony the movie Attila, made in 2013.

Attila (2013)

When American soldiers inadvertently steal Attila the Hun’s secret riches, the wrath of the barbarian is awakened; the mummified warrior will stop at nothing to kill the intruders. Nhat clearly loses out this week because as boring as Attila was, at least it looked somewhat professionally put together and the acting wasn’t too terrible.

Tony assigns Nhat to watch The Black Knight Returns, made in 2009.

The Black Knight Returns (2009)

When an evil corporation threatens to unleash the black plague, Evan Grail, is recruited by his grandfather, Max, into the order of the Black Knights – a secret band of warriors who have been called upon in the past to fight evil and injustice. Evan learns that his parents were murdered by the same twisted villain, Simon Darth, who threatens to unleash the plague. Evan wears the uniform of the Black Knights and must fight Simon’s evil army to save the day.

Episode 05: A Mother Of A Day

Tony and Nhat ruminate on Mother’s Day and remember their moms’ passings. Weird dreams about deceased relatives… Nhat apologizes to the Laotian community for last week’s episode, when he was trying to imitate what he thought their language would sound like after Tony chickened out. Nhat is Vietnamese and has a Cambodian sister-in-law, so he has carte blanche to make fun of Asians all he wants… but still apologizes because people are too sensitive nowadays.They talk about families and the irresponsibility of the Catholic religion, which then leads into Tony’s roof problems and then Nhat somehow convinces himself that he and Tony could fix Tony’s roof themselves, even though neither has had any experience at all.

They discuss the Kvelertak, Gojira, and Mastodon show at the Ogden on May 5, 2014. Nhat was glaring at the VIP section the whole time because they were taking up valuable seat space, hoping they would fall so they’d let other people have the seats. They talk about drawing the human body and what makes a good artist. They remember some of the weird stuff Nhat used to do like chugging coffee and eating a pancake and egg breakfast under a minute because Tony was harassing him for eating so slowly. Nhat is annoyed that the new Godzilla is too fat and is wondering what his food source is and how sustainable it is. They briefly talk about the next upcoming comics movies.

Episode 05: A Mother Of A Day

Intro song of the week:

Happy Mothers Day

Outro song for the week:
“Divinations” – Mastodon

Episode 04: (Part 2) Making Wookiee Cookies for May The 4th

We figured that we might’ve had a few bumps and scrapes with this cooking/baking episode, but it turned out even worse than expected. Tony misread the instructions and pours all of the ingredients in the bowl at once, only to have to fish the chocolate chips back out so that it can be properly mixed.

Mercifully, they actually didn’t turn out too badly. Here is the recipe… Hopefully, you’ll prep a little better than we did. I don’t see how you could do worse.

Wookiee Cookies

Yield:

Makes about 3 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Put the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir with the wooden spoon until well mixed. Set aside.

Put the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in another mixing bowl. Using the electric mixer set on high speed, beat together until well blended and creamy, about 3 minutes. (You can do this with a wooden spoon, but it will take longer.) Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and stir with the wooden spoon until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Scoop up a rounded tablespoonful of the dough and drop onto a baking sheet. Repeat until you have used up all the dough. Be sure to leave about 1 inch between the cookies because they spread as they bake.

Using pot holders, put the baking sheets in the oven. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Again, using pot holders, remove the baking sheets from the oven. Lift the cookies from the baking sheets with a spatula, and place on cooling racks. Let cool completely.

Episode 04 (Part 1): May The 4th Be With You (It’s All Just Sphincters, Man)

Tony and Nhat go to see Spider-Man 2 and are less than impressed. Nhat thinks everyone looks strange and might be having an acid flashback. Tony surprising scores it less than Nhat did – Nhat with a score of C+ and Tony gave it just a C.The disappointment continues to the next day, which is Free Comic Book Day, where they both show up late and manage to grab two measly comics from a picked through pile. To make things interesting, they both try to pick out comics for each other that neither would be likely to read. Each of them has to do a quick “book report” on their terrible assignments. And then they go off on a tangent of work, retail, Kevin Smith’s “Clerks,” sphincters, and whatever else comes to mind.

Episode 04 (Part 1): May The 4th Be With You (It’s All Just Sphincters, Man)

Featured intro song this week:

Episode 03 (Part 2): Fictitious Death Metal Album Covers Episode 01

We follow up on our segment in episode two where we draw names/languages and create fictitious death metal band covers, complete with song and album titles.

Tony drew the name Papegoja Mörk, which roughly translates to Parrot Dark in Swedish (if you trust Google Translate, that is).  I made the mistake of thinking that Tony would remember that his band name was Parrot Dark, so he misremembered that it had something to do with a lizard, hence, his album cover.

Episode 03 (Part 2): Fictitious Death Metal Album Covers Episode 01

Here is Tony’s album cover for Papegoja Mörk’s album “Shazbot”
 
Here is Tony’s album cover back for “Shazbot”
Album Song List:
1. Death From Below
2. Death From Above
3. Death From The Side
4. You Cannot Escape Death
5. I Wanna Kill You To Death
6. I Can Only Pray For A Painless Death
Papegoja Mörk is:
Sven – Guitar, Lead Vocals
Thor – Drums
Kasper – Bass

Nhat drew the name Geflügel Bauchspeicheldrüse, which roughly translates to Poultry Pancreas.

Here is Nhat’s album cover for Geflügel Bauchspeicheldrüse’s album, “King Of Fuck Mountain”
And here is the back cover for “King Of Fuck Mountain”
Album Song List:
1. Blood Goatee
2. Gouge Of The Butt
