SORT BY Relevancy
Note: The episode begins with wonky technical difficulties which we describe with the stereotypical "Blogtalk being Blogtalk" explination. Things do start moving...eventually. Stay tuned!
Mad Men has ended, the NBA playoff are in full swing, near death experiences are coming hot and heavy at Craig, Kline is fighting Dutch men, and there is this little picture in theaters called Mad Max Fury Road. We discuss it all on the May edition of Vertically Striped Radio!
"Coeur d'Alene, Idaho's hottest new hot talk radio team: Booger and The Fizz!"
Craig and Kline tested out their morning zoo chops as they prepared for a hot new career in Idaho or potentially Saginaw, maybe Des Moines if they get really lucky. Now we just need to figure out who is Booger and who is The Fizz.
There was also a breakdown of our new favorite league, the AIF. American Indoor Football action is coming to a rust belt town near you! Get pumped!
The show winds up with discussion of the increasingly ridiculous House of Cards, which is clearly losing it's way in Season 3, and yet somehow remains tremendously watchable.
It was mustache appreciation day on VSR as Craig was sporting a ridiculous mustache as he did the show. It was time once again for 80% trivia, and the callers were ready. Perhaps the questions were too easy, but three of the four callers were able to correctly get at least four of the five questions correct in the following five categories: The NFL season RIGHT NOW, Men with Mustaches, Name that Jim Carrey movie, Famous people's real names, and Name that Simpsons character. So congrats to Face Ventura, Jerry Fairish, and The Whale, and better luck next time Nalax...as he finished at 60% for the third straight edition of 80% Trivia. In addition to the trivia, Craig also announced which team he would be supporting during the 2010 MLB playoffs...as a hint, it rhymes with "The Mampa Tay Days." We also talked a bit about Dez Bryants rather exorbitant $54,896 dinner bill and the auction currently going down on eBay for Bacon Kevin Bacon. All in all, it was a rather full and fun day of fake radio. We topped things off with a recommendation of the song "The General" from the group Dispatch from their album "Bang Bang"
The Vertically Striped Academy of Arts, Sciences, and Other Neato Stuff held center stage as Episode 117 was used to unveil the winners of the 3rd annual Sockie Awards.
Craig was flying solo all show, so today's show was kind of like leftover day for the show...All the audio clips that had been sitting on the shelf for months or more were thrown into the mix to keep Craig from losing both his voice and his sanity. Included in the mix, we helped Jim from Taxi pass his drivers test, Craig apologized for a giant mis-step on the Magnificent Seven television theme songs, we played the Duck song, and we heard the official anthem of summer.
Craig also took a little time to wonder why Denver is turning into Seattle as well as reminisce about his experiences at camp and also unveiled the troubling source of the official Royal Family Kids Camp theme song. He even invited the listeners to play Words with Friends and offered a prize for the first person who can email what instrument is being played in an audio clip.

The Vertically Striped Music Recommendation was "You Remind Me" by Steve Poltz.
Can you stab someone to death with a plastic knife? How many minutes a week does Phil Jackson think about the Knicks? Can white people get ashy? How terrible is the movie Rudy? Who should a neutral fan root for in the NBA playoffs? Will Don Draper throw himself off a building?
So many questions to discuss, so we did.
Hey, Remember Vertically Striped Radio? Yeah, neither does anyone else, but despite that, we're back with a new episode. Craig and Kline discuss attending the Super Bowl, The Walking Dead, and Kline's ongoing romantic relationship with Bruce Springsteen among other topics.
The "Sockie" awards were presented on this show, plus The Ed was on hand to make his acceptance speech on behalf of "The Ed Show." We also honored the great Joe Sakic, and The Whale called in and offered his always welcome insights as Ed, the Whale and Craig broke down the Magnificent 7 reasons why the 80's are vastly overrated. The Vertically Striped Music recommendation of the week was "Evil Urges" by the band My Morning Jacket.
Chris Carley - Whats Success!
Chris Carley talking about her journey to success hosted by Peter Mingils on Building Fortunes Radio!
The Millionaire Within Us.by Chris Carley: An example of what’s possible when you have vision!
In one of her blog posted..... "It’s very easy to become negative, feel frustrated and give up on our dreams.....
If you keep in the forefront of your mind that hundreds of thousands of people have achieved their financial, health and personal goals, you’ve got to know that they aren’t smarter, luckier or work harder than you, THEY JUST KNOW MORE. All you have to do to Realize your Dreams is obtain the knowledge. Copy Success."
Craig was prepping for a big sports day in Denver, with the Broncos getting ready for the Patriots, and the Rockies getting ready to host the Phillies in the divisional baseball playoffs. To honor the Broncos wearing their Vertically Striped Socks, Craig did a Magnificent Seven list of the 7 Ugliest uniforms in the NFL. The Ed, Face Ventura and the Whale all jumped in to say hi, and they all helped with the list. Ed pretty much said I have no style, as he disagreed with me putting the Texans All-Red uniforms, the Dolphins Orange jerseys and the Seahawks Green uniforms on the list. The Vertically Striped Music Recommendation was "Notes from Elsewhere" by Peter Mulvey.
