Episode 32 – “Sickanimation”



Sickanimation.com is the playground for the anarchic mind of Marc M. His web cartoons and music includes everything offensive under the sun: racism, sexism, homophobia, all combined with pop-culture references and current events. Here’s the thing though, it’s REALLY funny. Marc M. himself does not promote these negative social constructs yet, instead, he makes fun of the views and issues surrounding them in a very Andy Kaughman way. Is he cheap toilet humor or a genius? You decide.

Episode 30 – “Local 58”



Brian introduces Derek to one of his favorite YouTube horror series, “Local 58”. In very digestible clips, Local 58 is a small collection of scary short videos, portrayed from the perspective of a local news channel. Produced and created by the same mind behind the “candle cove” creepypasta, these videos are very unique is their ability to entice uncomfortableness with very little resources. No actors, no large production budgets, just simplistic and sometimes terrifying content. Enjoy!

Episode 29 – “ElsaGate”



#ElsaGate refers to a wave of YouTube videos being produced by different channels, containing children’s pop culture characters (typically Western) that are shown doing bizarre and usually violent/sexual acts. The reasoning for the existence of these varies, but some believe it holds secret deep webs links to incredibly vile videos. These videos that are available currently to view on YouTube almost all contain common themes of injections, sex, eating feces, watersports and pregnancy. Strap in, this one has one hell of a twist.

Episode 27 – “Sentimental Corp”



Possibly the weirdest webpage we’ve discovered thus far, “Sentimental Corp” is an “interesting” site that seems to contain much odd video content, disturbing music, some bat-sh*t crazy writings- all having themes of government conspiracy, MK Ultra brainwashing, Illuminati, occult concepts, and at the same time can serve as a “severe mental illness simulator”. This one is weird, folks.

Episode 26 – “Miami Connection”



A symphony of unintentional comedy, “Miami Connection” is the film nobody wanted, but everybody needs. Brian and Derek dive headfirst into the epic 80’s kung-fu movie that HOLDS NO HANDS AND TAKES NO SH*T. Seriously, it’s awful, here’s an excerpt from the movie box: ” It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the “stupid cocaine”…and the entire MIAMI CONNECTION!!!”
