Popcorn Pulse 185: Strange Man

It’s still season of the spookiness when we recorded, on Halloween no less. The spirit of Tim Burton’s Hot Topic merchandise was strong with us. Which compelled us to do one last joint watch of a horror movie. This one from a couple of years ago about a supernatural house where a child ends up possessed. That doesn’t really narrow it down to anything though. We did Winchester[2018].

Manga Pulse 480: Olga’s Syrup

Hey there. Did you know that our episodes often come with reviews? Two of them, if you can believe it. You should believe it because we don’t lie. Unless we’re running for congress. Then we’re going to offer you blowjob robots that crap money. We like to pull out all the stops when we’re campaigning. Even if it makes the intersections far more dangerous.

Episode 776: Fall 2022 Previews #4

This week on Anime Pulse I’m alone and frightened. Joseph has gotten into the Halloween spirit and ghosted me (due to CO̶̰̯̩̔̒́͗̾͜VID).
