Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 208 - 03-30-13 - Hall of Fame Worthy

Urinal gaming, drunken face sharpie-ing, and a wedding-funeral...and that was just the news. In a brief, yet somehow "Hall of Fame worthy" episode we managed to discuss all manner of silliness including the ACME monopoly, Face watching a car explode, the nature of mysteries, and proper T-Shirt cannon etiquette  All this, plus a discussion of the recent Hall of Fame of Everything shenanigans at and a musical recommendation of Gomez covering "Up on Cripple Creek" by The Band.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 207 - 03-23-13 - On Board the Truimph

The first hour is an interview with an old college friend of Craig's, Joy Dyer. Joy was on board the Carnival cruise ship Triumph which broke down in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico back in February. Joy gives us a view into what it was like to be on that ship.

On the second hour, we are joined by Indie Sarah, Face and The Whale as we talk about podcasting, dueling to the death with sausages, odd book titles, and discuss how crisis was narrowly averted as someone other than Harrison Ford almost played Indiana Jones.

It's a very fun show that wraps up with a music recommendation from Dr. Dog of "That Old Black Hole" followed by a song that SHOULD be the new Robot Rabbit theme song by We Wrote the Book on Connectors..."If I didn't"

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 206 - 03-16-13 - Elvis Dumervil's Fax Machine

Craig was a little torqued that a fax machine screwed over his Denver Broncos. He managed to recover to talk with Face and the Whale about children eating prophylactics, the new pope, 3D printing changing the world, McDonalds and Taco Bell menu items, and Dennis Rodman as international goodwill ambassador. The music recommendation was Hypocritical Kiss by Jack White.

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 205 - 03-09-13 - Justice for Hamsters

It was a pseudo Slacker Saturday, but somehow it all worked out today. Face showed up a tiny bit late due to a disgusting and mysterious hand injury, but we were able to talk a little hockey as well as honor the great Stompin' Tom Connors who passed away this week.

We then welcomed in The Whale, and the standard VSR crew did a 2012 year in review and rambled on about this and that in a most pleasing way. Considering the shockingly small amount of show prep that went into this show, I couldn't have been more pleased with the resulting show.

The music recommendation was from the late nineties with The Wallflowers "Angel on my Bike".

Be sure to check out Face and Craig when they guest on Robot Rabbit this Tuesday on the LCS Podcast 

Face's swollen hand. Thanks, staph infection!

Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 204 - 03-02-13 - The Musical Stylings of Lil Poopy

Cusquena Beer from Peru!

Craig has taken up coffee for Lent, and as a result he was buzzing and ready to roll for Episode 204. Joined by Face, the core of Vertically Striped Radio discussed a tiny bit of sports including the Week in Avalanche hockey and the ridiculousness of Joe Flacco being the highest paid football player of all time before jumping into the news, a new edition of "Something to Think About" and honoring the newest inductee to the VSR Hall of Fame with a Magnificent Seven of the "Top Seven Doctor Suess Quotes". We wrapped with a musical recommendation of "We Used to Vacation" by The Cold War Kids and then had a musical encore of some terrible rap by "Lil Poopy".
