The Unloading – April 15, 2014

Standard

Mary’s back! MARY IS BACK! Seriously, she’s actually here for episode 77. Pete rains down threes on his “Little” even with his gimpy hand and he’s surprised that the kid really isn’t into playing basketball with him. Stephanie demonstrates the proper way to go handsfree while driving, if you don’t have Bluetooth. All that plus some Game of Thrones thoughts from Jim on this week’s Unloading.

Pub Cheese Recipe

Standard

Courtesy of my wife’s friend Joy here is the recipe English Pub Cheese. The Boddington’s, Kerrygold and Colman’s are very specific ingredients but I feel they are all key to the final product.

1 package (7 ounces) Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese

1 package cream cheese

1/4 cup Boddington’s beer

3 teaspoons Colman’s Mustard

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon Cayenne

Shred cheese finely or chop it up finely in food processor. Then add the rest of the ingredients into the food processor and mix it until it is well combined. It should have a consistency similar to cookie dough. Awesome with pretzels, crackers and everything. Depending on your preferences you might like more or less mustard, cayenne and Worcestershire sauce.

Episode 39 of The Unloading is here with special guest Mollie. Has Pete found a new career as a model? Plus, why does he love Vince Vaughn so much? Jim has a run-in with a very sassy man at the grocery store. Stephanie can’t believe her TV nerd friends didn’t tell her about Hannibal featuring Hugh Dancy, who might just become the new Chris Messina. Plus the crew fondly remembers Roger Ebert. All that and more on episode 39 of The Unloading.

The Unloading – January 8, 2013

Standard

The Unloading is back after a long weekend for episode 28, live from Jim’s living room. At the insistence of Mary and Pete we’re doing the show during the Alabama/Notre Dame game but we are not rebroadcasting or reproducing the game in anyway as we do not have the express written consent of the NCAA, Touchdown Jesus or Rudy Ruettiger. Stephanie started back to work and she already hates the CTA. Jim still hates Notre Dame and Cougartown, big surprise. Pete recalls the horror of being Catman’s roommate for 6 months and Mary talks about her new apartment. All that and more on episode 28 of The Unloading.

The Unloading – December 17, 2012

Standard

It’s the last episode of The Unloading for 2012 and the crew is even more skeleton than last week. Pete and Jim hold down the fort and Mollie is not around to reign in their deep discussion of holiday TV shows, fantasy football and 48 vs 24 frame per second film making. Jim gives his review of The Hobbit and Pete recaps his busy, festive weekend around Chicago. All that and more on episode 26 of The Unloading.

The Unloading – November 6, 2012

Standard

It’s Election Day on The Unloading, episode 20. It’s not hard to guess who Jim is voting for. Stephanie recaps her wild trip to Nashville. Mary poses the age old question, how many direct messages on Twitter does it take before someone sends a wang photo? Pete really wants some Starbucks but is OK with just staring at the Christmas-themed cups that Mary and Stephanie brought. All that and more on today’s Unloading.
