Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 193 - 12-15-12 - Honoring Connecticut

So soon after the tragedy in Connecticut, I couldn't do a normal show. So this episode is a short tribute to those who lost so much in Newtown on Friday morning and a moment to reflect.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 192 - 12-08-12 - North Korea discovers Unicorns.

Ed dropped by to say hello and to break word that he is planning on creating his own website. Allegedly, he will be debuting soon, although he hasn't registered the site as of showtime. It sounds like a glorious feat of technology featuring real time downloads of LCS Network shows, actual photos, and the ability to order McDonalds for delivery.

After Ed left suddenly, Face and DOTfan dropped in to help with a new "Something to Think About" which allowed us to reminisce about lining up by height, wonder exactly how tight Peyton Manning keeps his helmet, and a pitch for the greatest Mountain Dew Code Red commercial of all time. (Which didn't recieve the love it was due.)

The show wrapped with a music recommendation of "Helplessness Blues" by Fleet Foxes.

The Walking Dead just had their Mid-Season Finale, the Broncos just clinched the AFC West, and the Eagles are watching what appears to be the final days of the Reid Empire. Craig gets together with John Kline to talk about it. Then the show wraps up with a music recommendation that is actually an Australian Public Service Announcement..."Dumb Ways to Die" by Tangerine Kitty.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 190 - 12-01-12 - Feeling Superior and Toilet Paper Guilt

Despite a sad and taxing week, Vertically Striped Radio came out strong this week with people feeling guilty about stolen toilet paper, a man suing a Chinese woman because she used to be ugly, and a sudden outbreak of Lotto fever across America has Craig feeling uppity.

Face and Craig discuss the horrific Javon Belcher Murder-Suicide in Kansas City that morning, John Kline joins the show for obligatory Walking Dead discussion, and The Whale joins in as we discuss the Magnificent Seven things people do that make us feel superior. (Even though we're not.)

This week's fun show then wraps up with a recommendation from Dear and the Headlights of "I'm not Crying, You're Not Crying, Are You?"

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 189 - 11-24-12 - Malicious Monkey Murder

With the football season nearing the home stretch, Face and Craig discussed the worst division in the NFL and we also allowed Face to purge his negative sports feelings about the Cowboys.

We then welcomed The Whale in and the three VSR regulars debated whether or not turkey is a Thanksgiving requirement and then did our Magnificent Seven - Top 7 things we are thankful for.

Face gave us a little insight about what a Ventura family gathering is like complete with Mariachi music, and then the show wrapped with a recommendation of Ends of the Earth by Lord Huron.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 188 - 11-17-12 - Useless Things

After a week away from Twitter and Facebook, Craig was ready to share after so much time being unable to do so. This week we caught up with the Ed who called in after a long absence from the VSR airwaves, we also allowed a brief visit from DOTfan once some ground rules were established to try and keep him under control, and Face and The Whale helped discuss our Magnificent Seven of Top 7 Useless Things. (DOTfan narrowly escaped the list.) The Music Recommendation was a cover of CCR's Fortunate Son by Todd Snider.

No Name Show - Episode 165 - 11-11-12

David Escalante joined the guys for the top news stories of the week. We discussed a good amount of politics and sports. Went through a round of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Some clown named Dr. Charles Watkins, M.D. called in to talk about . . . I'm not sure what actually. We then finished the show off with a list of the top 7 selling books and video games for Christmas this year. Remember to do your holiday shopping at, but follow the link at first.

The Ed Show - Episode 223 - 11-10-12

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 187 - 11-10-12

From a gray and drizzly day in Colorado, Craig and Face looked back at how the internet has changed the world and how it's not ALL a good thing. The boys also discuss a terrible driver, pregnancy tests being used to diagnose cancer, Face's super power of ignorance, and why Craig has renamed the Saints the New Orleans Bananas.

The Whale drops by at the end of the show to make a few comments about the internet and also share Craig's passion for giving up fantasy sports. Craig also annouced his plan this week to give up social media for a week as a social experiment. The show wraps up with a music recommendation from Miniature Tigers of "Tell it to the Volcano"

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 186 - 11-03-12 - Nude Carjacking and a Bucket of Pee

It's Daylight Savings Saturday, and Craig had been reading up on this phenomenon that was more complicated than one would think it is. 

Indie Sarah, Face Ventura and Elevation all called in and we discussed Walking Dead, Dallas Cowboys football (Face's nerves are shot), Cleveland Browns fans dipping their heads in urine buckets, and the craziest news story in the history of VSR that involved nude carjacking, incompetent psychiatric evaluations, police car pooping, and a man eating his own finger.

The final half of the show had Sarah and Craig giving their respective Top Seven "Movies we'd love to be able to see again for the first time ever" on The Magnificent Seven. The show then wrapped up with a music recommendation of the song "Don't Run" by Bad Veins.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 185 - 10-31-12 - Halloween Spooktacular 2

The world has Jerry Fairish to either thank or blame for this episode of VSR. It's our second annual Halloween Spooktacular with spookiness and creepiness to beat the band. We also sit down with Mr. Fairish and have a talk that centers on Halloween, but also veers randomly into Las Vegas tourism talk. Download and enjoy this new holiday tradition, won't you?

The Ed Show - Episode 219 - 10-27-12


Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 184 - 10-27-12 - A Scholar but not a Gentleman

Craig did his best to pay attention to the show while still watching his K-State Wildcats try to pull out a win at home versus Texas Tech. Showing the range of his professionalism, he manages to deliver a show while watching the game. (It helped that K-State won 55-24) 

We ended up talking about sportsmanship in blowouts with Face, talked about Hurricane Sandy with The Whale (a hurricane of which Face was unsurprisingly completely unaware) and we talked a little Walking Dead with Elevation. We also spent several minutes breaking down an epic moment in our nation's political history. (If you are unsure of which we speak, Google "Mitt Romney and Meatloaf" and enjoy the unintentional comedic goodness) 

Face and Craig finished up with a Magnificent Seven list of our Top 7 Television Shows and then the show wrapped with a musical recommendation of "Cruel and Beautiful World" by Grouplove.

The Ed Show - Episode 217 - 10-20-12


Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 183 - 10-20-12 - Cooking Squirrel with a Propane Torch

The show started so early that we literally woke up Face Ventura with a call from the show three minutes before the the program started. Craig woke Face up by getting his blood flowing in anger about his Dallas Cowboys. After a rousing edition of the news that featured roach eating, death, squirrel roasting, and a blind man getting tased, we welcomed in The Whale and Pinedagger and together we worked our way through a new edition of Something to Think About.

Right before the show was about to go off the air, we briefly welcomed in Elevation and talked a bit about The Walking Dead before rounding out a morning edition of VSR with a cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer" from Mumford and Sons as our music recommendation of the week.

The Ed Show - Episode 215 - 10-13-12


Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 182 - 10-13-12

Vertically Striped Radio starts oddly and never quite rights itself this week as right out of the gate an elephant is inducted into the VSR Hall of Fame, Craig is bummed about the dismal end to a scintillating baseball round, and Face loses his ever loving mind over Miami Hurricanes football.

We then move into comforting a despondent Whale after his Nationals spit the bit against the Cardinals after taking a 6-0 lead in the decisive Game 5. Craig briefly recaps going to Kansas and then Elevation calls in and helps discuss the start of The Walking Dead Season 3 this weekend before the show devolves into a free-flowing discussion that touches on a ridiculous range of topics including politics, serial gropers, and Ed's fiscal strategies.

With visits from Face, The Whale, Elevation, The Ed, Nalax, and DOTfan, what we lack in quality this week we make up for with quantity. The show wraps with a musical recommendation of the song "Conversation 16" by The National.

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

The Ed Show - Episode 213- 10-06-12


Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 181 - 10-06-12

It's a "Start Wearing Purple" weekend, as Craig is off to the flatlands of Kansas to cheer on the Wildcats and Ravens. Since a live show was out of the question, it's a prerecorded show. With free steak, Magnificent Seven Dinosaurs, You Don't Know Jack advertisements, and Craig upset that the presidential candidates are screwing up Denver traffic, it's a wide ranging hour with the VSR host with a few surprises thrown in and a music recommendation of "Life, in a Nutshell" by the Barenaked Ladies.
