It's double the Alex fun this week, as Alex Cocilova joins Jason, Carlos, and DJ A-dubs to talk about storming the Tokyo Jungle. If you don't want to play as a Pomeranian struggling to survive in a future Tokyo overrun with wild beasts, you can always watch the excellent fan film Left 4 Dead - The Movie, or run over the undead hordes in Earn to Die. If you're a fan of LCD Soundsystem, Carlos thinks you're love the documentary Shut Up and Play the Hits.

- Fans of LCD Soundsystem should watch Shut Up and Play the Hits, a nifty documentary about their last show.
