Gaijin Kanpai Ep.139 - "GK OG"

GK OG's yo, kickin' it old school. Yeah. *some kind of generic hand sign that makes us seem "gangsta"* ...We may be nerdy white kids but we will probably never stop trying too hard. This week we are Jaylee-less. LoKi and Zer0 stick around to be awesome together, just like old times. Awww.

Listen as we review "Milestone" by BoA! Marvel as we dissect the artistic merits and flaws of "Humania" by NICO Touches the Walls! Thrill to our GK-AA results! Shock! Amazement! Bewilderment! Alcohol!

The uStream was quite the party this week - if you weren't there, you missed a troll who failed to get a rise out of us. We called him "cute." It was quite entertaining. To make sure you never miss such events again, join us each Thursday at 7:30 PM Pacific, 10:30 PM Eastern!

Also - and this is VERY IMPORTANT - our next episode will be uStream Exclusive!! If you miss it, you miss the whole week! Just our little Christmas gift to the fans who come chat with us. Swing by, if only for a little while, as we talk J-pop by a virtual fire.

And now, notes. :)

Gaijin Kanpai Ep.131 - "Mint Chocolate Chip"

Or Dreyer's Swiss Orange Sherbet, whichever you prefer. :)

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. :)
