Dinosaur Dracula!

The Purple Stuff Podcast: Episode 9!

Your new Saturday night tradition continues. (Well, I hope it’s your new Saturday night tradition, at least.) Time for the latest Purple Stuff Podcast!

In tonight’s episode, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit play a five round game of FACT OR FICTION. Each of us makes two statements, and it’s up to the other one to determine which is true and which is false. Feel free to play along!

(And yes, the game is completely drenched with Halloween and horror stuff. Duh!)

You can listen through the player above, or access the MP3 directly over here. The Purple Stuff Podcast can also be found on iTunes and Stitcher!

Tonight’s episode is a little on the short side, mainly so we’d leave ourselves with enough time to watch Brock kill the Big Show.

Thanks for listening, as always! Read More…

Old News #2: Freddy Krueger Clippings!

Here’s the second edition of Dino Drac’s new series, OLD NEWS!

This time, I’ll be examining a bunch newspaper ads & articles concerning A Nightmare on Elm Street, from an era when Freddy Krueger was — for lack of a better term — hot shit.

(September 1989)

Really, he was! Don’t pay attention to that shitty caption.

As the following clippings will show, Freddy Krueger’s celebrity status extended far past horror circles. Spanning more than a decade, several of these articles had no reason to mention Freddy Krueger, but did anyway. Dude had serious name value! Read More…

The 2015 Halloween Mood Table!

October is here, and you know what that means!

MOOD TABLE TIME.

Well, most of you know that, at least. If you’re new to Dino Drac, the Halloween Mood Table is a tradition I started on my old site, way back in 2007. The process involves turning a table — any table, big or small — into the center of your own personal Halloween universe.

Compared to the Mood Tables that I build now, my first one was downright diminutive. Hell, last year, I pretty much turned the thing into a video store from 1987.

Obviously, yours needn’t be so complex. The only purpose of a Halloween Mood Table is to give your home — and thus, your life — a static place where Halloween is always happening.

If work or other responsibilities have kept you from being able to “partake” in the season in any major way, the Mood Table is absolutely essential. Whenever you need to breathe and eat Halloween, your Mood Table will be there. Consider it October’s Christmas tree.

(Christmas tree slash witchy altar slash toy store.)

Starting with the same small tile table that’s been the backbone of every Mood Table I’ve ever built, it wouldn’t be long before it was rendered unrecognizable. I knew it’d be tough to top last year’s Mood Table, but I was willing to die trying. Read More…
