Tag: Drinking


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!


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.


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.

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 HobbyBoxBlog@gmail.com. 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…).


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…


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!


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!


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!


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!

It’s time again to get your drink on!

We’re back with one of our longer drinking sessions. This time we discuss how Michael Bay is raping our childhoods – and specifically how Lance keeps falling for it. We try to prognosticate where he will strike next and then decide to cast a new He-Man movie, but don’t get very far.

And also, Lance describes how the antiquated methods of measuring drinks, especially scotch, need to be revised. He looks to the cutting-edge system of equine measurement for inspiration.

Drinking rules are as follows:

  • Chug through the entire theme song along with Burns, if you’re cool like him.
  • Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink.
  • Take a drink each time we say spoiler.
  • Take two drinks for each Michael Bay movie you’ve seen that Lance mentions, because you are part of the problem.
  • 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!


Kanpai faithful drinkers! It is time for another Long Distance Drinking!

In this episode, we discuss Guardians of the Galaxy and just how awesome of a movie it is. We also debate whether it is the best marvel movie yet and why.

We also have the revelation that Lance is a goth hipster and explain why. Then we have some discussion on Adrian Peterson’s supreme athleticism and confront an angry Kraken.

Plus, we unveil the kickstarter for our best podcast project! So join us and bottoms up!

Drinking Rules for this episode:

  • Whenever you hear a conversation killer sound effect, take a drink.
  • Take a drink each time we say spoiler.
  • Take a drink (or a shot if you dare) whenever Lance butchers the English language.
  • 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!

You can also follow us separately : @hobbyboxburns, @brentlydavis and @roninclark (though Lance doesn’t ever post anything, so no need in that…)


We’re back! Out mid-season break has us relaxed and ready to rock out, with our cocks out!

Godzilla is out and we discuss our thoughts; spoiler alert – Lance had issues with it (no surprise there). We even create our own spin-off character from the show (and we want all licensing rights).


Merry Christmas Everybody!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas wherever you are! As we mentioned yesterday, today we are finishing things off with some drinking rules for some of the more “modern classic” Christmas movies! If there are any movies you would like us to evaluate in the future, Christmas or otherwise, just let us know in the comments below. Also, if you have any additions you think should be made to the rules for these four movies, let us know as well. But, without further ado…

Day 12 – Christmas Day: Christmas Movie Drinking Games

A Christmas Story

Health Warning: It is advised that you DO NOT play this game over and over again every time it comes on TBS today… Only one time is recommended.

Thanks to its popularization by cable television, this movie is now a staple of most folks’ Christmas, and why not: it does about the best job any movie has of capturing what it is like to be a child at Christmas.

  1. Any time “You’ll shoot your eye out” is said, take a drink.
  2. When the kids run away in fast forward, yell “Run Away!” and then drink!
  3. Anytime someone swears but it is replaced with gibberish, take a drink!
  4. Each time Randy starts oinking, take a drink.
  5. The first time the leg lamp is seen within a scene, say “I love lamp!” and then drink!

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

Christmas Vacation is definitely my favorite Christmas movie and is probably the best Chevy Chase movie of all time (aside from maybe Fletch and Caddyshack). Nothing makes you feel better about your own family’s Christmas than watching another family’s Christmas fall apart in hilarious fashion.

  1. Every time Clark says “Griswold Family Christmas” take a drink.
  2. Whenever Ellen calls Clark “Sparky”, take a drink.
  3. When Clark’s boss mispronounces his name, take a drink.
  4. Whenever Clark hurts himself in a klutzy way, take a drink.
  5. Whenever Cousin Eddie comes onto screen in a scene, take a drink.

Home Alone

As if there weren’t enough reasons to have a large, family vacation over Christmas, Home Alone gives you one more – people will break into your house, steal all of your possessions and leave the water on. Interestingly enough, this is the second movie on the list that takes place in Chicago and the third that takes place in the Midwest (A Christmas Story is based in Indiana).

  1. Any time that Kevin screams, take a drink.
  2. Say “Keep the change, ya filthy animal” along with it when it is said in the movie and then take a drink.
  3. Every time Kevin mouths off to someone, take a drink.
  4. Whenever the term “wet bandits” is said, take a drink.

Die Hard

Though it is overlooked at times, the original Die Hard is in actuality a Christmas movie. The incident in the movie happens during the company’s Christmas party, which is why John has flown all the way from New York to Los Angeles.

  1. Whenever “Nakatomi” is said, take a drink.
  2. Any time Sgt. Powell comes onto screen in a scene for the first time, say “Did I do that?” in your best Erkel impersonation and then take a drink.
  3. When John McClain laughs, drink for the duration of the laugh.
  4. Take a drink at each cowboy reference, whether someone is called one or a phrase, like “Yippee-ki-yay” is used.
  5. Every time John kills a bad guy, cheer and take a drink; whenever a bad guy kills someone, boo and take a drink.

I hope you enjoyed your 12 Games of Christmas as much we have! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night – of drinking!
