Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 80 - 11-06-10 - The Most Interesting Ed in the World.
The entire sports world has lost it's mind, so it's up to VSR to try and set the world back on it's axis. That's a tall order, and we are woefully unqualified, but Face, The Whale, and Craig tackled the major sports issues of the day including the Randy Moss, KG calling people cancer patients, the ongoing Brett Favre saga, and even the fact that apparently Mike Shanahan has lost his mind.
We didn't stop at sports, as we discussed ways to make hearing political commercials more entertaining, and even the wildly disturbing thought that Face would take a run at Snooki.
Round 2 of the Super Mario Brothers music tournament matched up 7 Seed - Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco with the 2 Seed - Eminence Symphony Orchestra. John Kline of ElevationRadio.com joined us for the final 45 minutes or so and we did the Magnificent Seven List of 7 Magnificent Beer Commercials. We developed a new law of nature which states, "The better quality the beer commercial, the worse quality the beer." It appears to be an immutable law.
We also premiered The Ed's, "Most interesting Ed in the world." commercial. The show wrapped up with the Vertically Striped Music Recommendation of a couple of songs from Tired Pony. "I finally love this town" and “Dead American Writers.”
