Hi there. My name is Carlo and I like movies. I like them so much I started and contributed to several projects you can find listed below. The one that started it all was the Crud Buddies, a B-movie collective for people open to everything and everyone that started with a Discord I had set up to interact in a more direct, and focused way with other movie friends from across the globe.

After a couple years of organizing screenings and doing podcasts together, my buddy Dan and I started a Crud Buddies podcast, called *Cream of the Crud, *****over on the Notes from the Back Row feed. It’s a catch-all show about what we’ve been watching lately, movie news, and other tangents.

I am also a localizer in the publishing industry, and I’ve used this experience to self-publish a Crud Buddies zine, and an author-sanctioned English edition of Toyokazu Matsunaga’s PaperaQ, which is **free to sample via It is an unusual, but very rewarding manga to sink your teeth into.
