Dinosaur Dracula!

12 Seriously Scary Movie Scenes!

Me and Jay never expected The Purple Stuff Podcast to last for a full year, but here we are. When we decided to do this last summer, I just figured that it would be a “better than nothing” bonus deal to toss on the site on dead weekends. Instead, it waaay surpassed our expectations (thanks to you) and evolved into something we both really enjoy doing and put a lot of work into.

…but we’ve never forgotten that the show was bred as a Halloween thing, so we’re very excited to get back in the spooky swing of things!


In celebration of The Purple Stuff Podcast’s one year anniversary, this episode marks the start of our 2016 Halloween season! From now through THE BIG DAY, all of our shows will have something to do with Halloween — in whatever vague form that may take.

To kick things off, we’re celebrating 12 SERIOUSLY SCARY MOVIE SCENES. (Mostly mainstream ones, I admit.) These are the moments that weren’t just gross or gory or artistically haunting, but that actually literally frightened us.

We’re covering everything from The Blair Witch Project to Jacob’s Ladder to, um, RoboCop 2. Give us a listen by clicking the giant, ugly play button down below!

Reminder: The Purple Stuff Podcast can also be found on iTunes, Stitcher and Podbean.

Thanks for listening to us yak for a year!

As for Dino Drac, I’m still gearing up for the official Halloween Countdown, which begins on August 27th. Course, it’s pretty hard to resist posting about everything NOW, what with all of the cool stuff already popping up in stores. Like, say, these: Read More…

Dino Drac’s August 2016 Funpack!

If your heart says “Halloween” but your brain won’t let you fully commit in August, I have just the thing for you!

Dino Drac’s August Funpack blends summer with autumn, and should give you just enough spooky fuel to get through this miserable month!


For the new kids: I sell monthly Funpacks. Subscriptions are $25 per month (including shipping), and you can cancel at any time without penalty.

The Funpacks fund the site, and at this time of year — when I’m buying all sorts of things to cover during the two month Halloween Countdown — subscriptions are super important to Dino Drac’s health!

In trade, you’ll keep getting boxes of awesome goodies for as long as you stay subscribed!

Scroll to the bottom of this post for complete ordering information, or read on to see everything you’ll get in the August 2016 Funpack!


This month, there are over ten items in every box! I aimed to give everyone a big dose of Halloween, but also mixed in enough other stuff to keep people from blowing their wads too early.

You’ll get stuff to read, stuff to play with, stuff to decorate your walls with, and even stuff to eat!

Every subscriber will receive ALL of the following: Read More…

The Halloween Countdown IS COMING.

Dinosaur Dracula’s 2016 Halloween Countdown begins on Saturday, August 27th!

I have such sights to show you! Just… not quite yet. 🙂

So, a warning: Most of August will be pretty light on the content front. Once the Countdown starts, I’m married to the site through the end of December. I typically take this month to get my ducks in a row before I’m all out of free time.

There will be articles posted this month… just not very many!

Right now, I’m focused on gathering the materials necessary for a strong Halloween Countdown, which will include at least 40 new articles/videos/podcasts before it’s over. (Plus whatever assorted side dishes that I cook up — and trust me, some are already on the grill.)

The Halloween Countdown began back in 2003, which makes this my fourteenth year at bat. (Ha! Bat.) I’m hoping to make this year’s one of the best ever. Stay tuned! Get psyched! Read More…
