Cheers! On this episode, the guys take some time to break down their thoughts on Avengers: Age of Ultron and their review may surprise you a bit. Also, they take some time at the beginning to talk about Burns’ hatred for panhandlers and over-the-top Veteran reunions (he hopes it doesn’t make him a terrible person, but it just may). Burns also walks through two other movies he saw during his mini-movie marathon weekend in Ex Machina and It Follows. The fellas also break down the new red-band Vacation reboot trailer, excitement for Tomorrowland and Mad Max: Fury Road, and Brent talks about what the next big thing in movie theater view will be – HDR. But, most importantly, Burns tries out the new Coors Light Citrus Radler, their summer seasonal. This one may be a game changer (or it is just another light beer). All of this and they drink and drink some more, so clink ’em and drink ’em and hopefully you enjoy (or at least tolerate) the 21st Birthday of Long Distance Drinking! Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink (there were none this episode, surprise surprise) Take a drink each time we say spoiler. Whenever Brent’s or Lance’s voices go robotic/mechanical, take a drink. Whenever Lance says something grammatically incorrect or somehow botches the English language, take a drink. If you agree with Burns when it comes to Panhandlers or Showy Servicemen, finish your drink. If you don’t agree, you may need a shot. If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist, overly perveted or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song. Other musical credit goes to Kool and the Gang with Celebration and  Holiday Road by Lyndsey Buckingham from the Vacation series.

Welcome back drinking buddies! It is upon us yet again, another Trailerpalooza! Even with Brent on location in Hot-lanta for work, we discuss the most recent reveals of information and how we feel about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, Terminator: Genysis, Fantastic Four, and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. We also discuss the new pictures of Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad. Plus, we get into a bit of a talk about WWE vs. WCW in the late 90s and early 2000s, the Nepal Avalanche and David Hasselhoff’s new song True Survivor from the movie Kung Fury. But, most importantly, Burns does a double-book-end of Coors Banquet Beer and Shiner’s Birthday Beer. And the guys drink and drink some more! Prost, clink ’em and drink ’em and join us for more Long Distance Drinking! P.S. – Apologies for some slight audio volume issues in the very beginning of the show, it goes away by the 10 minute mark. Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink. Take a drink each time we say spoiler. Whenever Brent’s or Lance’s voices go robotic/mechanical, take a drink. Whenever Lance says something grammatically incorrect or somehow botches the English language, take a drink. If you catch Burns cracking a terrible “joke” quietly in the background while the others are talking. If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist, overly perveted or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! Whenever Burns says “update”. If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Also, as referenced in the episode, here is the link to the footage from Everest of the avalanche: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4YF_VNdHgA Here is the music video for True Survivor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTidn2dBYbY Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song.

We know it has been a bit, but we are back and ready to get drinking! On this episode, we discuss Brent’s almost complete turn to the dark side as he has added an iPhone 6 Flex to his already long list of Apple products. With the Apple Watch out, will he want to complete his collection? Continuing with the Star Wars metaphors, we get a little lost trying to classify who is what evil character in the Star Wars universe at Disney. And Lance says he is pretty sure he is done with Star Wars (we’ll believe it when we see it). In direct reference to Star Wars and the amount of non-movie content that Disney is putting out there, we attempt to quantify how much of a good thing really is too much and attempt to put us in the place of the creators to see how we would react. Aside from that, we debrief from all things March Madness and discuss what we did on our vacations over that time as well as give an update on various related enterprises. We also come up with a new show idea, called Between Two Uber Rides and discuss the regular random crap. Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink. Take a drink each time we say spoiler or March Madness. Whenever Brent’s or Lance’s voices go robotic/mechanical, take a drink. Whenever Lance says something grammatically incorrect or somehow botches the English language, take a drink. If Lance corrects himself on his screwed up language, finish your drink! If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist, overly perveted or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Also, as referenced in the episode, here is the  Tie Fighter short that Brent mentioned: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN_CP4SuoTU – Google spreadsheet for bracket pool: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15InQ77-nRuazBYgUX3kL99pJ6s3KBqaFof5VxdxdSFc/edit?usp=sharing Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song.

In a true sign that March Madness has overtaken us, we have another very special episode of Long Distance Drinking! On this episode, we kind of celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by discussing how for a couple of us, it pales in comparison to March Madness for us. Then, we discuss our March Madness traditions and why it is we get so excited about the tournament! Then, we discuss our plans to have a podcast-wide March Madness Pool! To join, just email us at [email protected] If you want to run the pool with your group of friends, you can get the sheet from the link later on in the show post. After that, we get on to all sorts of topics: the science and stats of a zombie outbreak or apocalypse; The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and The Last Man on Earth; California is running out of water; more Power Rangers; and we have new listeners (who may have been scared away by all of the P Talk at the beginning of the episode…). Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink. Take a drink each time we say spoiler or March Madness. Whenever Brent’s or Lance’s voices go robotic/mechanical, take a drink. Whenever Lance says something grammatically incorrect or somehow botches the English language, take a drink. If Lance corrects himself on his screwed up language, finish your drink! If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist, overly perveted or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Also, as referenced in the episode, here is the article on the zombie apocalypse by the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/03/04/scientists-determine-the-nations-safest-places-to-ride-out-a-zombie-outbreak/ – The interactive model for the zombie outbreak: http://mattbierbaum.github.io/zombies-usa/ – Google spreadsheet for bracket pool: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15InQ77-nRuazBYgUX3kL99pJ6s3KBqaFof5VxdxdSFc/edit?usp=sharing Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song. Other musical credit goes to Dropkick Murphys and their song Kiss Me, I’m Shitfaced as well as the G.I. Joe Theme Song (watch the awesome video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8qxoe31wmA). Also, we take no ownership over CBS’ awesome theme of March Madness. As always let us know if you have any topics, thoughts. or suggestions (or if you want to be on the show).

Hey There Fellow Drinkers! It is time again for another batch of some Long Distance Drinking! On this episode, through Leonard Nimoy’s death, we end up discussing and re-living the great career of Michael Clarke Duncan more than that of Mr. Nemo’s (as Lance keeps accidentally saying). Aside from that, we stick with the “Hollywood” theme by discussing The Oscar Nominated movies for Best Picture, Hot Topless Maids and Brently’s proclivity for putting dicks in his mouth. We also delve into the process of paying respect to a TV show or movie by creating a fan-film that is different in style but still plays up the fan-service. We also give an update to our Long Distance Dynasty on NCAA Football 2014 – here’s a spoiler, the three of us suck at it – and to Burns’ dismay, we avoid playing What’s in My Mouth again… Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink. Take a drink each time we say spoiler. Whenever Brent’s or Lance’s voices go robotic/mechanical, take a drink. Whenever Lance says something grammatically incorrect or somehow botches the English language, take a drink. If Lance corrects himself on his screwed up language, finish your drink! If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! Take a drink if you agree with one of the guys’ choices for Love it, Like it, Hate it, Hate that I Love it… If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Also, as referenced in the episode, we discuss the POWER/RANGERS short film by Ari Shankar as can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vw5vcUPyL90 – Our Robocop Remake by various artists as can be seen here (jump to 40:05 to see the seen Burns specifically discusses): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyKPJbYTxno – We also listened to The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins by Leonard Nimoy, which can be viewed in it’s entirety here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGF5ROpjRAU – And then someone mentioned Portal Basketball, so here that is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBkld6kqFG4 Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song. Other musical credit goes to the Barenaked Ladies with their song Sell, Sell, Sell off of their album Maroon.

Happy Belated New Year Everyone! This episode we discuss why it is we didn’t record when we were all together for the holidays as discussed in the last episode (our title lays it out pretty clearly). We then discuss the things that went down over our holiday break, including our discussion of The Interview. Aside from that, we delve into the video game we are all playing together, the College Football Playoff National Championship game, a bunch of the trailers that have been released in the last few months, and we play a new game. Plus, we preface what we hope will be a new game to play along with the podcast in future episodes – Long Distance Drinking: The Bingo Game! Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink. Take a drink each time we say spoiler. Whenever Brent’s or Lance’s voices go robotic/mechanical, take a drink. Whenever Lance says something grammatically incorrect or somehow botches the English language, take a drink. If Lance corrects himself on his screwed up language, finish your drink! If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song. Other musical credit goes to WWE for the Cactus Jack Theme.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Fellow Drinkers! We get together this time to debrief from our previous craaaaazy episode. Brent decides he can no longer discuss relationships on the podcast, Lance decides that he should never drink a half-bottle of scotch in one sitting ever again, and Burns continues to say stupid shit he regrets instantly! And makes claims that his voice probably doesn’t live up to… Meanwhile, we discuss one year of podcasting, rehash many things we had previously discussed, and discuss the TV shows and movies we’ve recently seen and if there is a lack of good, innovative science fiction out there. Oh, and there are a shit ton of conversation killers. And we create a band name – we just need to figure out how to make music now. Plus, we preface this next episode which we will all be recording in the same place over Christmas weekend (whhaaaAAAAttt???). So send us your thoughts for topics or games we can play while we record what we hope to be a marathon session of (not so) Long Distance Drinking! Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink. Take a drink each time we say spoiler. Whenever the relativity of time is mentioned, take a drink. Whenever Brent’s or Lance’s voices go robotic/mechanical, take a drink. Whenever Lance says something grammatically incorrect or somehow botches the English language, take a drink. If Lance corrects himself on his screwed up language, finish your drink! If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song. Other musical credit goes to Matt Stone and Trey Parker and South Park Studios for their great song that we allude to in the cast. We don’t own it, but we love it so very much.

It’s time again to do a little (or a lot of) Long Distance Drinking! One year to the day that it all started on as a matter of fact! This time, the main topic of conversation is the fellas thoughts on the story and science of the movie Interstellar. In fact, we go into a good amount of detail with Lance’s amateur theoretical physics knowledge. And of course we rate the movie on the patented Hobby Box Blog 7 Point Scale (patent pending). Along the way, we also try to make it seem like we know more about alcohol than just how to drink it; Brent solicits relationship advice from the two most single guys he knows; and we play a brand new game of Burns’ concoction. Plus, Lance’s level of inebriation leads him to a series of mumbles and curses by the end of it, but he blames the scotch for that. Near the end, we also share some listener feedback and we then say what we are Thankful for as it is Thanksgiving time. So clink ’em and drink ’em along with us! Prost! Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink. Take a drink each time we say spoiler. Whenever the relativity of time is mentioned, take a drink. Whenever Brent’s voice goes robotic/mechanical, take a drink. Whenever Lance says something grammatically incorrect or somehow botches the English language, take a drink. If Lance corrects himself on his screwed up language, finish your drink! If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song. Other musical credit goes to Paramount Pictures for the Star Trek: The Next Generation Theme and to Styx with Mr. Roboto.

It’s time again to do a little Long Distance Drinking! The fellas (joined by #1 fan Justin) cover pretty much the whole gamut of hot topics that are challenging society today: Ebola, the apocalypse, Snapchat, the Redskins name debate, marijuana legalization, the Loch Ness Monster, Amazon Prime vs. Netflix, reality TV, the worst fast food places and jamberries. We also discuss what we think Silver Linings Playbook 2 should be about (and we think it is awesome). Then we review some of the feedback all of you have shared with us. Don’t forget to share anything else or any other ideas for topics via the contact information below! All of this and more on this episode of LDD! So drink along and enjoy! Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink. Take a drink each time Burns laughs for seemingly no reason. If it is a lengthy laugh, take two. Take a drink each time we say spoiler. Whenever Brent’s voice goes robotic/mechanical, take a drink. If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song. Other musical credit goes to Green Day with American Idiot and Lochness Monster by Cool King Chris (see more here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuLz7ADSvFs). There was also a bit of Gnarls Barkley/Ceelo Green’s Craaaaaazyyyyyy. As always let us know if you have any thoughts or suggestions (or if you want to be on the show).

First off, apologies on the sound being a tad quiet at parts and over-loud at other parts. It apparently wasn’t a great idea for Burns to be blitzed when mic testing. Or for an entire podcast, which he was. On this episode, Burns cannot hide his exuberance at the Gophers beating the Wolverines and winning the Little Brown Jug and explains why it’s important. The guys then tackle the tough topics of the day like the Fappening and Adrian Peterson. Then we introduce a couple of new segments – Challenge the Akinator and Fan Fiction Fuckery. But, the whole episode falls apart once the gang debates the greatness (or lack therof) of the O.C., which causes Drunk Burns to completely lose his mind. Is it just the alcohol talking or is Burns really that insane? Find out on this edition of Long Distance Drinking! Drinking rules are as follows: Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink. Take a drink each time Burns laughs for seemingly no reason. If it is a lengthy laugh, take two. Take a drink for each incorrect guess you or the guys make during the Akinator. Each time Burns moans or says “Oh my God”, take a good chug. Take a drink each time we say spoiler. If we say something that crosses the line to you (sexist or what have you), take a drink as it will make it better! If you are ever confused about the rules, just take a couple drinks and move on! Thanks again to John Meilner for the fantastic theme song. Other musical credit goes to Michael Jackson with Bad, The University of Minnesota and their Minnesota Rouser, and Phantom Planet and their theme to the O.C. “California.” Also, special thanks goes to Gopher Digital Productions and their highlights from the Minnesota vs. Michigan game, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UREpk5kmJy4 As always let us know if you have any thoughts or suggestions (or if you want to be on the show).
