"The Imitation Game" was pretty good. "Birdman" was awesome. Go see it!

Lol, I just wrote about volume five last week. Anyway, these two chapters seem to be a modified episode 13 (about maybe half of it so far, anyway). 
And here's my understanding of what is going on: 
Here is the front cover of the monthly (anthology?) that features chapter 30: 
I suppose I'll show the opening part to chapter 30. Yoko fanservice time!   
Any questions?

I thought this wasn't coming out until July. I found out that I was lied to when I found this and bought in San Fransisco on Thursday. I love this volume, and can't wait for it to be translated. Here's what I know: 

And now, the front/back cover and the Nia poster:

Any questions about this volume? I'll answer them as best as I can.

Thanks to mom, I was able to see Zappa Plays Zappa, amongst other acts just last night in Downtown San Jose. Since Frank Zappa is dead, this tribute band created by son Dweezle is as close as I will ever get to seeing Frank's band live. Unfortunately, I didn't get  any pictures of the show itself (cameras were "not allowed." Besides, I would have been caught anyway.) But I did get a t-shirt and a poster. Highlights, so to speak:
  • Scale the Summit opened the show with a 25 or so minute set. Me like them already.
  • Big Elf was second with a 40 min. (?) set. Not really a band I'll invest in.
  • Zappa Plays Zappa! Over an hour set. Wow. Would have been perfect if "Flakes" (my favorite Zappa song) were played. And why did the lead singer keep walking off the stage?
  • Dream Theater: Headliner act played for almost 2 hours. Note to self: buy albums.
Feel free to ask me questions about the concert.
  Please excuse the flash in this shot. Poster cost $15, and was one of the last two for sale.
$35 for this t-shirt. Front side.
Back side.

SPOILERS ahead, I suppose.
Out of "boredom" I decided to ride my bike to Kinokuniya Bookstore in San Jose on Wednesday. While there, I ended up buying Gurren Lagann (not the school one*) manga vol. 4 (it's in Japanese). Why? Because, I figured why not: I couldn't find any other volumes, and I have a habit of buying things I don't "need." 
So I read it later at home. Well, it's not horrible, but not perfect either. Heck, I don't even know what to rate this thing. So instead, I'll point out some stuff that sticks out to me:  
  1. Apparently, this volume takes place after episode 8 of the tv show, then brings in elements from the first movie= Some of it works, some of it doesn't.
  2. Yoko firing Simon's drill out of her gun in order to save Nia= Ok, but no swimsuit (no beach chapter, oh well)
  3.  The speech!= Talk about akward looking 0_o   
  4.  Boota biting SImon in the butt= lol, motivation.  
  5. Well, that's all for now. Any questions? Feel free to ask me, I guess.
  6. *=I bought the school manga in San Francisco last Saturday
