#50. When Coca Cola Tried and Failed.

Remember in 1985 when Coca Cola reformulated classic Coke and everyone hated it? We don’t either. Luckily, they changed it back. However, we got to try the 1985 reformulated coke(New Coke) during our show and ruminated on its flavors. As a side pairing of potentially disastrous flavor changes, we also ordered a couple of the newly formulated Pizza Hut Original Pan pizzas. Tune in for a sugar and starch filled episode…our 50th episode to be exact, AND, our 2 year show-anniversary!

#49. The “Whats In A Name” Episode

In this wildly all-over-the-place episode we discuss a new direction for our podcast; putting a face to the name of the show, We Tried. We Failed. Bieber wants to fight Cruise, Blahdios opens for Boingo, Marc Mann steals the show from Prince, and the Synthwave scene grows ever bigger. Also, we drink a salt and black currant beer from Sufferfest. Check it out!

#48. The “Dumbo” Episode.

In this episode we review Dumbo, an animated film we didn’t know needed to be remade, but done by masterful storyteller Tim Burton, and with accompanying music by his faithful colleague and one of our heroes, Danny Elfman. We also talk about Elfman’s upcoming Violin Concerto as well as other Burton/Elfman/Oingo Boingo things… Grab a beer and enjoy!

 

#47. The Dead People and Old People Episode.

This week our hosts talk about the recent deaths in not just Hollywood, but Music, as well as some sad news regarding Americas favorite gameshow host, as well as some other news of people leaving longheld posts.. Dont worry, it’s not a sad episode. We drink: Stone Brewing Co, Grapefruit Slam IIPA.

#44. The First Episode of 2019 Episode

Happy New Year! Thanks for tuning in for the past couple years! We wax nostalgic about the 2019 Oscars, our resolutions for ourselves and the show, the “Tarantino 10”, and lastly we take a question from one of our listeners: “The Best quote of the 1980’s”. Its a quick 45 minute listen. We drink Deschutes Fresh Haze.

41. The Shortest Episode In A While

In this exciting and quick episode we breeze over Predator movie, The Midnight in concert, as well as do some 80/90’s trivia. We drink we beer from Rogue brewing up in Oregon, and we talk about a new show coming up that we are working on. Its a quick episode, but just as entertaining as they all are… or are they?

Big Episode 40! We interview a musician we both admire immensely, Mr. John Avila – Bassist, Producer, as well as all round cool dude! We also attend Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Smashing Pumpkins and John Williams concerts as well. Its been a busy week, but definitely worth a listen! Check it out!

They also talk about a special tiny performace from Tash Sultana they attended…actually… no, we dont talk about it all. But we did go. Sorry Tash! A+ show, though! We also drink some fine Hefe’s from the Wiehanstephaner gang.

#31. The One About Anything Pt. 1

Which director finally passed the $10billon dollar box office milestone? Why are we vacationing at the same place but exactly 2 weeks apart from each other? If a two person band performed, and did the work of 4 people, would it be a good show? We went and experienced it. On this weeks episode, we drink Pepper and Peach beer from Claremont Craft Ales. Also, a bit of movie trivia for SnG’s.
