Dinosaur Dracula!

Purple Stuff: Let’s go to the movies!

Seeing a new horror movie is always fun, but it’s way better when Halloween is in the air. (Yeah, I know it’s still early August, but Halloween is definitely in the air!)

With that in mind, get ready for the second-ever Purple Stuff Podcast minisode! This time, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit report back after a night spent watching haunted dolls in a grimy theater.

The movie in question? Annabelle: Creation. Good flick, even if we spent more time talking about what we ate.

Give us a listen by clicking the giant, ugly play button down below!

This is a short one even by minisode standards, but fifteen minutes’ worth of virtual company is better than none, right?

Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

Dino Drac’s August Funpack: Ease Into Halloween!

It might not be the Halloween season just yet, but I bet you’re ready to pretend that it is. With this month’s Funpack, it’ll be a whole lot easier!

Ease into the spooky season with Dino Drac’s August Funpack! Along with the usual bunch of retro bric-a-brac, this month’s Funpack includes a serious dose of macabre wonders!

Usual spiel: For those who don’t know, I sell monthly Funpacks. Without them, there’d be no Dino Drac! The Funpacks are $25 per month, and you can cancel at any time without penalty. For as long as you stay subscribed, you’ll keep receiving packages of awesome nonsense every month! Read More…

The 2017 General Mills Monster Cereals!

I FOUND THEM. Had to drive to the freakin’ Bronx in nonstop traffic on a Friday night, BUT I FOUND THEM.

Behold, the 2017 General Mills Monster Cereals!

After last year’s misfire with that whole “election” theme, I’d call this a return to form.

Some folks wanted General Mills to aim high with a new character or at least the return of Fruity Yummy Mummy, but given the iffy reception to last year’s theme, I think going back to basics was the smartest move.

Though the cereals have apparently shipped everywhere, I’ve only heard of one store — the store I found these at — actually putting them on shelves already. Heck, as of this writing, General Mills still hasn’t formally introduced them!

All three boxes have updated art, and I’m *fairly* sure that each box comes with a larger-than-usual assortment of marshmallow shapes. (…which would explain why General Mills made such a fuss about those “monster marshmallows” on the artwork.)

Here’s the breakdown: Read More…

The Hunt for Halloween Candles.

Surprise! We’re already finished with the next Purple Stuff episode!

Well, minisode, at least.

We wanted to try a little experiment. Me and Jay have like a hundred adventures every Halloween season, but very few of them merit the “complete” Purple Stuff treatment.

Instead of trying to stretch 20-30 minutes’ worth of stories into hourlong shows, we’re gonna work in a bunch of “minisodes” this season, which will cover everything from our spooky shopping excursions to whatever random horror movies we end up seeing.

In this minisode, we tell you all about last night’s completely unsuccessful hunt for this year’s Monster Cereals, and how that led us to chase down some delicious Halloween candles instead.

As we touch upon in the show, nights like that help make the Halloween season special. (Yes, even when it’s still the frickin’ first week of August.)

Here are a few photos that will make more sense once you’ve heard the show: Read More…
