Show 113 - THE END IS NEAR... so lets drink a beer!

WARNING: Not Safe For Work (NSFW) due to explicit language.  Send the kiddies out of the room.

BigFoamyHead goes emo and adds to the national hysteria.  If you watch CNN, even casually, you'll start to notice that the reporting is formulaic - disaster and financial ruin, pretty much in that order.  Can you hear the rythmic beating of hooves as the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride on the Highway to Hell?  Earthquakes, fire, famine, floods and pestilence are all at hand.  We're flirtin with disaster, but we say crack a cold beer and watch it go up in flames!  You may as well get a good buzz on the eve of destruction.

Beers sampled on this emo episode:

  • Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout (8.3% ABV)
  • Lagunitas Olde GnarlyWine (9.7% ABV)
  • Steinhaus Fat Weasel (preshow beer) (7.1%)
  • Baron's Black Wattle Superior
  • Breckenridge Brewery 471 Small Batch Double IPA (9.2%)

You might think, to paraphrase Jerry Seinfeld, that «this is a show about nothing.» 

Au Contraire mon cheri - this show is about the things we love - beer, blues and BBQ!  I know, you are stunned.  It's our «wrap up» show from the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival '08.   Dick and Rick sitting around by the lake on a warm Monday afternoon cleaning out the beer fridge «spares», cooking some BBQ chicken. listening to tunes and shooting the breeze.  Self serving and gratuitous? You betcha.  So?  Music samplings from Backdoor Slam, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carl Simms and Hot Monkey Love.  In the words of Ace Ventura, pet detective... «Alrighty then!» - let's get to it!

Beers we sampled:

  • Full Sail Vesuvius (8.5%)
  • Bison Reunion '08 Organic Red Rye Ale (6.5%)
  • Dogfish Head Chateau Jiahu (9%)

Show 112 - The Boulder Beer Show

We had so much fun recording this show, we decided to just jump to it and defer the editting nightmares of our last two shows.  Boulder Beer Co is one of the oldest micro breweries out there (43rd to be precise) and the first in Colorado.  Nestled in Boulder Valley in a building known as the «goat shed» in view of the ever present «flat irons» rock formation at the foot of the Rockies.

We honor the passing of another influential musician - Bo Diddley passed away on June 2nd, 2008.  Bo was instrumental in bridging the Blues and the beginning of Rock-n-Roll with his signature rectangular guitar.

Join us as we explore our latent thespian talent - the BigFoamyHead interpretive dance theatre gives you not one, but two pieces of audio class and culture... a brilliant bit of acting in ModernDrunkardMagazines «Drunks in Space» and a haiku from BeerHaikuDaily.  It can't get any better then that. But wait - it does! Theres more! Whoa.  Mike goes varment huntin and we all express opinions on polygamy. 

Beers we sampled

  • Boulder Beer Company Never Summer Ale (5.9%)
  • Boulder Beer Company Hazed and Infused (4.85%)
  • Boulder Beer Company Sweaty Betty (5.9%)
  • Boulder Beer Company Obovoid (7.5%)

Show 106 - Smoked Beer Show

We get smoked up on this show. Hippie music, smoked malts, and cripple abuse. We get all shlenkerled on this show (listen and you will know what this means) and we have multiple flashbacks. Is it because of the beer or something else? You be the judge. We sample hard the offerings from the Schlekerla Brewery out of Germany. We also listen to some smoking tunes from Alvin Lee, both Ten Years After and nowadays.

Beers sampled on this show:

Schlenkerla Marzen
Schlenkerla Urbock

HACKED. But not that bad.

On the one hand, we were hacked a little bit by Russian pornographers. Screwed up a few messages, but not much else. On the other hand, it caused us to finally clean up all the crap we've been putting off and upgrade to a (hopefully) more secure system.

Oh, and it killed comments and all the pages of articles (our BEER LIST!) for a little while. No worries, they're coming back. In the meantime, thanks for listening!
