First off, we at GK would like to dedicate this episode to Apple co-founder, board member, and former CEO Steve Jobs. The hosts have made their love of Apple and its products no secret over the years, and his passing was hard on all of us. RIP Steve. You were truly the man.

Jaylee unfortunately had to take a personal day this week, so LoKi and Zer0 are bringin' ya the goods for this ep! We review the anticipated new Sakanaction album "DocumentaLY" and the new triple A-side single from Anna Tsuchiya, "Unchained Girl." They also bicker like an old married couple, because Jaylee isn't around to cut them off when they start to sound like idiots.

The uStream was awesome as usual this week, and we'd like to thank the fans for such a good turnout! If you'd like to join the party, we record live Wednesday nights at 10:30 PM Eastern, 7:30 Pacific.

And now, time for the notes. :)
