Dinosaur Dracula!
  • 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

    I’ve been on a real Masters of the Universe kick lately, thanks in large part to a couple of books I got for Christmas that detailed pretty much everything about the franchise, from the toys to the toons to the comics. I admit that I haven’t been so great about keeping up with

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: All About 1986!

    Well, it’s my friggin’ birthday. I’m 37, folks. THIRTY. SEVEN. I’m not sure that I even could get away with saying that I’m in my mid-thirties anymore. Gross. It feels strange. Like, have I moved past physical growth? Am I now at the point where everything just slowly rots? Will

  • The Purple Stuff Podcast: Episode 19!

    Wow, they weren’t kidding about that blizzard! I can’t remember the last time we got so much snow. To be honest, I didn’t mind it. Being snowed in kinda rules. It’s the perfect excuse to dress like a mummy, act like a slug and eat like a Hutt. Of course, it’

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Pop Culture Mascots!

    I’m a sucker for brand and product mascots, no matter if they’re promoting toys, vacation destinations or goddamned fabric softener. So long as they’re cute and so long as they seem like good company for a lazy Sunday spent watching bad movies on the couch, I’m so in. …and th
