Dino Drac’s July Funpack is here!

I can hardly believe it, but this month marks the Funpacks’ seventh anniversary! Freakin’ WILD, guys. When I started doing this back in 2014, my initial plan was to only stick with it for a few months. Under no circumstances would I have ever believed that I’d still be at it seven years later!

Thanks to all subscribers, old and new, for keeping the fire burning!


The July 2021 Funpack is a summertime smash of retro collectibles, sweet candy and nifty art, snugly packed into a long white box!

Unfortunately, subscriptions are closed for this month, though I will almost definitely have spares to sell on an individual basis once I complete my counts. If you’re not a current subscriber, scroll to the bottom for info on how to get on the waitlist. Otherwise, keep reading to learn about everything in this month’s box! Read More…

Purple Stuff Podcast: The FIRE Show!

Since we can’t beat the heat, we’re joining it! The latest Purple Stuff Podcast is all about FIRE!

Guys, this episode is HOT. Me and Jay from Sludge Central challenged ourselves to come up with eight great things that have something (anything) to do with FIRE.

Guess this one doubles as our summer episode. Let us entertain you with stories about Volcano Burritos and Anakin Skywalker.

Click here to listen to this week’s show!

As a reminder, the Purple Stuff Podcast is also on Patreon, where you can grab an exclusive bonus show each and every month. (June’s has already dropped, so head over there if you wanna hear us gab about old Nintendo merch.)

Much as I hate to spoil our picks, I thought you’d want some supplementary links to help you better appreciate the fiery things we’re discussing:

1. Cocaine Spicy Energy Drink
2. Burnheart from Super Naturals
3. Firestarter
4. Fireball from The Running Man
5. Barbecue from G.I. Joe
6. Congo Volcano Burrito at Taco Bell
7. Anakin’s Fiery Fate in ROTS
8. Cheetos Pepper Puffs

Enjoy the show! Thanks so much for your ears, for your reviews, and for sharing the podcast around! Stay cool, everyone! I’m off to hide my head in the freezer.

Dino Drac’s June Funpack is here!

If you’re not already a Funpack subscriber, the bad news is that I don’t have space for any additional subscriptions at this time. The GOOD news, though, is that I have a solid amount of June 2021 Funpack spares that I can offer as one-time sales — so if you’re seeing this post early enough, you have a shot at it! (That is, assuming you want one!)


Dino Drac’s June 2021 Funpack blasts into summer with a hot hot hot mix of nostalgia bombs and edible delights, all packed in a box that I’m told can withstand 200 pounds of pressure.

It’s a good one, folks. Scroll to the bottom for ordering info, or keep reading to learn about everything in this month’s pack! Read More…

Purple Stuff Podcast: Snacks We Want Back!

Memorial Day is a baaaad time to post, but it was either that or miss our self-imposed deadline, so… hope you can take time out from barbecuing to listen to a podcast?

The Purple Stuff Podcast returns with a sequel to a very old episode, SNACKS WE WANT BACK! We’re naming ten more discontinued foods that we’d love to devour one more time, from PB Max to Paradise Punch Bubblicious!

Me and Jay from Sludge Central made ourselves very hungry while recording this. You’ll probably suffer the same fate, so before you listen, make sure you’ve got a Snickers in your pocket or something.

The Purple Stuff Podcast is also on Patreon, where you can grab an extra bonus show each and every month. (This month’s bonus show previews some of the upcoming Halloween season’s hottest candy!) And for those who were wondering, yep, you’ll get access to ALL of our previous bonus shows when you sign up!

As for our new (old) SNACKS episode, below are a bunch of supplemental links if you wanna learn more about the treats we’re discussing:

Have any special memories of those ten foods? Share ’em in the comments!
