    It might not feel like it, but it’s the first day of autumn! Nobody can deny that we’re in the Halloween season now. If you were holding off on taping up cardboard skulls or transforming into a bat or whatever, now is the time! To help ring in the best season of the year, we’re

  • Purple Stuff: Pumpkin Spice Donuts at Krispy Kreme!

    Happy Friday! Here’s a new podcast to kick off the weekend. It’s about Halloween doughnuts! We know we’d promised a regular full-length episode this week, but we had to shift gears to make room for today’s once-a-year opportunity. For whatever reason, Krispy Kreme c

  • Purple Stuff: Escape from Castle Dracula!

    Longtime readers know about my obsession with Castle Dracula, a famous dark ride that once graced the boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey. I’ve been to Wildwood several times since Castle Dracula burned down, and if I’m being honest, it just ain’t the same without it. New Purple Stuff

  • Purple Stuff: Spooky Shopping Excursion!

    Get set for another Purple Stuff Podcast minisode! This time, me and Jay hit a couple of stores on the hunt for Halloween goodies. It didn’t work out quite as well as we’d hoped, but then, nothing does: What magically macabre wonders awaited us at Dollar General and Kmart? You&

  • 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 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 t

  • 12 Cool Cars From All Walks of Pop Culture!

    Hi! I’m back from a too-long break. (Sorry about that!) The good news is that I used some of that time to prepare for something wildly important. The other good news is that me and Jay are finally ready to unveil the newest episode of The Purple Stuff Podcast! This week, we’re covering

  • The Purple Stuff’s Sharkstravaganza!

    I love sharks, you love sharks, everybody loves sharks. Let’s spend the whole day obsessing over sharks! The Purple Stuff Podcast has finally returned, thanks to the peeps who demanded it with pitchforked pleas. (And we appreciate that — you guys rule.) This week, me and Jay from T

  • 12 Awesome WWE Entrance Themes!

    In the latest Purple Stuff Podcast, we're naming 12 of our favorite WWE entrance themes from the past and present. And talking way too much about Doink the Clown.

  • Purple Stuff: A Nightmare on Elm Street!

    Since we had so much fun recording our Friday the 13th show, this week’s topic seemed only natural: Yes, the latest Purple Stuff Podcast is all about FREDDY KRUEGER. This week, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit run through a dozen of our favorite things about the entire Nightmare on E

  • Purple Stuff tackles Friday the 13th!

    Today is Friday the 17th. That’s gross. Let’s pretend it’s Friday the 13th. The Purple Stuff Podcast is back with a 75 minute tribute to Friday the 13th! This week, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit run through a dozen memories of the franchise, covering everything from the

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Snow Days!

    Coming to you live from Dino Drac HQ, it’s Matt with a fever. And a cup of coffee. Which for some reason makes the fever feel ten times worse. Why am I drinking this? Before I retire to the couch, lemme slide you the latest Purple Stuff Podcast. Been a while, hasn’t it? This we

  • 12 Awesome Holiday Tunes!

    At the start of the holiday season, I always have grand plans dancing in my head. I imagine a December filled with yuletide adventures, where half of my waking moments will be spent among blinking lights, brisk winds and spiked punches. Eventually, the reality sets in: December may look pr

  • 10 Weird Things We’re Thankful For!

    The holiday gods have chosen me for their annual sacrifice! I have a fever that’s getting worse by the hour, and a light congestion that’s actively baiting me to cough so it can reveal itself as much, much worse congestion. Fun! If this stays the course — and knowing my body, it

  • Not Your Average Scares!

    We’re ridiculously close to October, which is great and maybe also a little bit terrible. Remember to make the most of the Halloween season! DO SPOOKY STUFF! …even if it’s just listening to scary podcasts for an hour. Hey, speaking of which! Yup, we’re finally ready to drop the

  • Purple Stuff: More Spooky Songs!

    Labor Day marks the spiritual end of the summer season, so for any of you holdouts who were desperately trying to resist pumpkin spice lattes and 1986 Beistle decorations, it’s time to STOP THAT! Thank God. …so now that we’re undeniably in the Halloween season, the latest episode

  • 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 (th

  • Purple Stuff: All About 1988!

    There was a whole lot to love about 1988! Even more than just Oatmeal Swirlers. From Nintendo Cereal to Child’s Play, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit are covering 1988’s greatest hits in the latest Purple Stuff Podcast. We dug pretty deep on this one, as evidenced by the whol

  • Summer Memories from the ’80s and ’90s!

    Summer is here! Sure, it’s only my third favorite season, and sure, it comes in dead last if we’re only talking about the weather, but still… yay! It’s a season full of roller coasters and yard sales and cotton candy and tiki mugs, so no matter how humid, sticky and bug-filled the

  • Purple Stuff: All About 1990!

    1990 was a big year. A huge year! From Gremlins 2 to Dick Tracy, I’m not sure that any other year provided me with so many obsessions. Also, since I’d started junior high by the time 1990 ended, it was really my last chance to be a kid in the truest sense, free to wallow

  • Purple Stuff: TV Theme Songs!

    I think I got two hours sleep last night, so apologies in advance if I mindlessly segue into a diatribe about how rabbits are really elephants. It was all to bring you this thing in a timely fashion: In this week’s Purple Stuff Podcast, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit discuss a dozen of

  • Things that are scarier than they should be.

    We’ve officially crossed the halfway point to Halloween! Course, since so many of us start celebrating in August, that’s even better than it sounds. In just a few short months, we’ll all lose ourselves in a sea of latex and candy and dead leaves. I can’t wait. R

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: All About 1992!

    1992 was an interesting year for me. I was still very much a kid, but the climate of junior high had a way of pressuring me away from “baby” stuff in favor of more “mature” arenas… like comic books, dumbass sneakers and TV shows about space aliens. No, it didn’t make any sense

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Wrestling Memories!

    It’s WrestleMania weekend! While I admit that I’ve become more of a fair weather fan, WWE’s WrestleMania still feels like a holiday. The event is this Sunday, but there’s enough wrasslin’ shit going on for fans to make a whole weekend out of it. I’m very much looking forwar

  • Batman, 1989! Love that Joker!

    Last week was an endless storm of nonsense that kept me almost totally away from Dino Drac, so it feels good to be back! It’d feel even better if I didn’t spend the last six hours trying to fix my computer. It’s still not quite there, so I’ll make this quick… Hooray, The Purp
