Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 136 - 11-24-11 - Thanksgivingish

It's the VSR Thanksgiving spectacular! Craig has a long list of things for which he is thankful that lead the show in some unexpected directions. That include Dinosaurs, Hot Mustard, and what is likely the dumbest utterance of “Alligator” in human history. (And of course, Craig is thankful for the Muppets.) 

Craig also has a Magnificent Seven list of his Top 7 Cookies, the VSR Holiday Gift guide with unique gift ideas for that hard to shop for person, and Craig and Luke prepare Egg Cakes in the inaugural (and likely Final) edition of “Cooking with Craig” and then things wrap up with a music recommendation of “Thankful” by Caedmon’s Call.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 135 - 11-19-11 - Stuffing the Prius

Tim Tebow is taking Denver by storm, and Craig is confused as to exactly what to think. Can a terrible quarterback also be great? It defies logic, althought that is the result of the early returns of the Tebow era. Craig, Face, and The Whale spend a full segment discussing the state of the NFL. 

We also deal with the dangers of hippos as pets, the sucess of McDonalds despite not being good at anything, and Craig's status as a professional Prius stuffer. In between all that, Craig has a new edition of "Something to Think About" and also "The Week in Wankery" and finishes up with the Vertically Striped Music Recommendation of "E. Watson" from the new Decemberists album "Long Live the King."

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 134 - The one with Capitalist Fox

It was an odd day on the show, made odder by a Skype caller by the name of who every time we put him on the air he or she did nothing but play vulgar music. So that was fun. 

The callers we did entertain who actually spoke included Face and the Whale as the Magnificent Seven counted down the Top 7 Sports injustices. Then the Ed called in and things fell apart in a very Ed like way. Ed rambled for longer than we probably should have let him, but then he helped us discuss the changes we would make to NFC uniforms. During this segment we came to learn that Ed really likes gold in a uniform. 

Craig wrapped things up by briefly discussing the confusion that is the AFC West, and a few other random topics with Face and The Whale before wrapping things up with a music recommendation from Peter Mulvey of "The Dreams".

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 133 - 11-05-11 - Don't call me Amigo!

Craig is lucky to be alive after the Ed nearly killed him this week. He used his new lease on life to chat up some new "Something to Think About" ideas with Face. Among other ideas, Craig hates being called Amigo, and has a great idea to intimidate opponents in a stadium or arena. 

Craig also had his Magnificent Seven Top 7 Favorite words in Spanish and a music recommendation from Ben Folds Five of the song "Army". 

It was a short show because Craig was getting ready to take the family to see the Lion King at the Temple Buell theater. (How sad is it that an hour and 20 minutes qualifies for short show status?)
