Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 102 - 03-26-11

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 102
With the prospect of being out of town in Chicago for his Grandfather-in-law's 95th birthday, Craig didn't want to just throw in the towel for today's show. Rather than just canceling, Craig and Face decided to put together a pre-recorded podcast version of the show. The boys discussed armed robbery, race relations, among other topics, and they ran down Career Builder’s Top 10 bad excuses for being late to work that people have actually given their bosses. Craig then discussed what happens when he Googles himself, and we finished up talking about the likelihood that the Phoenix Coyotes were going to be moving back to Winnipeg and discussed the relative merits of Winnipeg Jets vs. Manitoba Moose for the name if they end up in the city they moved away from fifteen year ago. The Vertically Striped Music Recommendation was “Be my Yoko Ono” by Barenaked Ladies, and the show finished up with a solid edition of 5 Minutes with Luke where Luke talks about some of his future life ambitions as well as his desire to someday play football for the Rockies (The kid is a little confused). This show was originally recorded back on March 16th.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 101 - 03-19-11

Craig was on location at his childhood home to avoid roofers and their noise. It was a mildly Irish themed show, and The Whale, Face, Elevation, and Major Minority all made appearances at some point as we discussed things such as the NCAA tournament, the best way to determine a champion in sports, and the glory that is visual voice-mail. (By the way, the VSR Voice-Mail is now active, and if you'd like to leave a message the number is 720-CUB-1-ACE.)

I gave Major Minority the duty of picking our next movie to discuss for the He-Man Movie Watchers Club. He was kind enough to call in to help us discuss his movie Shutter Island. We bandied about a plethora of random theories to try and explain this rather inexplicable movie.

 We finished up with a quick discussion about a grammar discussion on and a bit of grammatical advice from Strong Bad. Then an Irish twinged Vertically Striped Music Recommendation of Galway Girl by Steve Earle.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 100 - 03-12-11

It was the 100th episode spectacular edition of VSR, and appropriately, Blogtalk was causing technical issues for Craig. Despite the fact that at several times his phone freaks out due to Blogtalk being Blogtalk, we were still able to relive several great moments from the first 155 Hours 43 Minutes and 08 seconds of show history.

This show you get to hear great moments including clips from Elevation, The Whale, Face Ventura, The Ed, and even Dave Dameshek. 

This episode also allows you to relive The Ed's epic Swap Meet Surgery episode, an all time great moment in the show. Face, The Ed, Aaron Young from the No Name Show, and Craig discuss the great moments and reflect on the first 99 as well as look forward to the future of the show. 

 The Show ended up with a music recommendation of a song (and album) from Mumford & Sons. The song and album are both called "Sigh No More" and the music is amazing, do yourself a favor and pick it up immediately. (You can also do the show a favor and buy it from the Amazon link that you can find at 

Thanks to all who made the first 100 episodes of this show wonderful fun for me, I look forward to even more wonderful fake radio in the future.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 99 - 03-05-11

Craig was all ready with show prep to beat the band for Episode 99, but when The Ed calls in...sometimes you just gotta let him roll. We spend the first hour of the show basically letting him do the Ed Show with a special Saturday time slot. He discussed his recent "hardwood installation" job, which basically consists of him super-gluing plywood to carpet and calling it hardwood. Apparently the people for whom he did this work are unhappy with the results. Go figure.

After about an hour of Ed, we spend fifteen minutes or so trying to get him off of the phone, which we eventually are able to accomplish. Then Face, the Whale and Craig spend the rest of the show in a He-Man Movie Watchers Club meeting discussing the 80's Steve Martin flick "Roxanne".

The Vertically Striped Music recommendation was "A Well Respected Man" by The Kinks. Craig then introduced a new segment which he will use to close out shows..."Five Good minutes with Luke."
