Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 114 - 06-25-11 - Down with Predictive Octopi

VSR opened with news about a guy hiding in a port-o-potty and another genious tossing a bag of weed onto the hood of a cop car, setting the tone for today's show. 

Craig and Face celebrated the official return of the Winnipeg Jets and also commended the Buffalo Bills on abandoning the worst uniforms in the NFL. We even scratched our head at Metta World Peace, the new moniker of the officially insane Ron Artest. 

The Text-to-Speech players unveiled their acting chops deliving some spectacular reimaginations of some classic movie scenes. Then Craig spoke out against predictive Octopi among other things with a new episode of "Something to Think About." 

 The Whale (on fake radio hiatus) still managed to be a part of the show, delivering a new episode of "Sharp Dressed Man" via a voice mail, and then show wrapped with Craig's recommendation of "Would it Kill You?" by Hellogoodbye.

This Lady Really Loves Cats.

I played the audio from this on Vertically Striped Radio Episode 113, so I thought I'd post it on the website as well so you could see it, if you aren't one of the nearly ten million people who have already watched it as of Sunday morning June 19th. This lady loves herself some cats, and while I'm almost 100% certain that she's doing this as a joke, it's well done and cracked me up. (Listen for the snicker from whoever is doing the camera work near the end...I'm pretty sure this is performance art, not someone actually getting emotional over cats.) Enjoy!

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 113 - 06-18-11 - The Ed Strikes Back

Hallelujah! The Ed returned to Vertically Striped Radio...and there was much rejoicing! (Even if The Ed's phone quality leaves something to be desired.)

In addition to hearing the Ed, Face and Craig went head to head on a Magnificent Seven list of our favorite movie characters of all time, Samuel L Jackson read us an inappropriate bedtime story, we were treated to the video dating profile of a lady that really loves cats. (I call shennanigans on it, by the way.) We discuss Mark Cuban's plan to potentially NOT get the Mavericks championship rings, and most importantly...we learned that The Whale sometimes calls "The Lady That Cooks His Food" by a different and far more precious name. (You'll just have to listen to learn what it is!)

All in all, a banner show for the VSR crew. Craig wrapped things up with a music recommendation of the song "Wolf Blood" from the band Jay J Matott and The Arctic.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 112 - 06-04-11 - Nothing More Than Feelings OR There's Nothing Sexy About Grimace OR Rhino Jerky

Episode 112 was very emotional. It was the "Feelings" episode, and Craig played different clips to represent all sorts of different emotions such as "Happiness" (An interview with Josh Semrow, a.k.a. 4th and 26, and his fiancee Holly about their recent engagement at the Field of Dreams.), "Embarrassment" (A story from a guy about the time he foolishly got his car stolen.), "Anger" (An over the top Georgia Bulldogs fan and an over the top "musical artist"), "Fear" (A story that may or may not be true, but is undeniably spooky.) and the show ended with "Sadness" (The saddest thing ever heard on the fake radio network.)

In between the emotion, we heard a new edition of "The Sharp Dressed Man", we got to hear the Ed call in and breathe over the phone to assure us he's still alive, and we got to hear the Vertically Striped Music Recommendation of "Film Noir" from the band The Gaslight Anthem.
