The Mostly-Complete Dino Drac Archives.

You have some reading to do!

Below are most of the Dino Drac blog archives. Certain categories may be excluded to keep things tidier. If you notice any typos, pretend you didn’t.

  • Thursday morning.

    Hi! The deal: Things became really busy over the last few weeks. As busy as I’ve been in a long time, and too busy to run Dino Drac right. Rather than put up really weak no-thought content (yeah, even weaker than a Twizzler robot), I decided to just get through the storm and return t

  • The 5 Greatest Things About Carlo.

    He may have turned up in a photo before, but I think it’s time for you to officially meet Carlo. Carlo is great. He’s great for way more than five reasons, but I’m on a tight time budget. Actually, just going by the photo above, I’m sure you could dream up more than twenty reasons<

  • Alien.

    Since you guys did such a great job last time, I thought we’d give it another try. In a single comment, your job is to explain what you’re seeing here. Again, there are no wrong answers. This image has more than one story to tell. I look forward to reading your ideas. In all sincer

  • BFCDAW #2: My New Robot.

    It’s time for Bullshit Filler Content Devised At Work #2. This one was important. Today was crazy busy. I knew I wouldn’t have the energy to come up with an original concept after the long commute home. If I wanted to post anything tonight, I needed a BFCDAW miracle. I think it was aro

  • Vlog: Boglins Hand Puppets.

    One thing I dig about Dino Drac is the chance to get even more mileage out of things I’ve already covered a hundred times. Yay for Boglins! If you don’t remember them, Boglins were monstrous, rubber hand puppets that came out in the late ’80s, ready to rock our worlds wit

  • New Feature, & SNT.

    There’s a new feature up. I’m currently ninja editing, so if you act fast, you’ll get to catch so many typos and flat punchlines. It’s about one of my favorite things ever, sincerely. I’m shocked that it’s taken so long for me to do that thing I do with

  • Wallet-Sized George Photos.

    Got some mail today! <3 Mail from Snapfish. If you’ve been paying any attention to Dino Drac, you know what this is. And I couldn’t be more excited. Four bucks and four days later, I have wallet-sized photos of George the Gremlin.

  • New Feature: Casino Games, for the SMS.

    Mentioning it here for the RSS-only crowd, but also because I don’t know how many people keep an eye on that enormous features banner on the main page. There’s a new one up, about Casino Games, an old title for the Sega Master System. Read it! But I still don’t want these

  • BFCDAW #1: Troll 2 Fan Art.

    Even as Dinosaur Dracula was still under construction, I knew I’d run into issues balancing my professional life with the site. I hoped it wouldn’t happen ten minutes after launching, but it wasn’t a huge surprise when it did. I vowed to incorporate my workday into Dino Drac’s

  • Berry Blue Jell-O Recipes.

    Berry Blue Jell-O arrived in 1992, and the fanfare — at least in my imagined version of things — was enormous. Here were raspberries and blueberries, finally putting aside their differences to take over the planet. This was perhaps the first signal of the “blue candy” craze

  • Vlog: Real Ghostbusters Proton Pack.

    I was always more into the action figures, but The Real Ghostbusters collection was truly a “pretend play” pioneer. The Proton Pack came out in 1986. Every boy I knew had one. There was no room for “maybes” on the chance to become a real, live Ghostbuster. A chance to make lots of

  • Photo of the Georges.

    I grew up swearing that “Brain” was the best Gremlin ever. He isn’t. You might remember Brain from Gremlins 2. He’s the one who gained the ability to speak, and used that ability to sing “New York, New York” while other Gremlins sorted through crates of plastic explosives. Brai

  • Wendy’s Berry Almond Chicken Salad.

    This week’s Saturday Night Thread is brought to you by some kind of fruity salad from Wendy’s. We’ve all had those nights when we’re hungry, hopeless and scouring YouTube for old fast food commercials. You’ll sit there watching Jason Alexander fumble around with a McDLT, angry th

  • Salt.

    In a single comment, your job is to explain what you’re seeing here. There’s much to consider, but I don’t want to influence things. What does this mean to you? Tell the story of what you see. There are no wrong answers.

  • Garfield and Friends Fruit Snacks!

    I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday, duh. Got smacked in the face with several new gigs that required immediate attention, and will continue requiring attention over the next few weeks. I guess this is the part where I remind everyone, but mostly myself, that Dinosaur Dracula is a ho

  • Ninja Turtles Cracker Topper!

    Let’s kick this baby off with a photo of Krang, dressed like a soft serve ice cream cone. But it isn’t soft serve ice cream. It’s mofuggin’ Easy Cheese. Side note: Mondo Gecko’s tongue has always bothered me. It looks like he’s biting it. I admit that diving straight in

  • Vlog: “V” Toys – Enemy Visitor Doll + Bop Bag.

    It’s been years since I’ve done anything about V, but I finally had a good reason: The official V bop bag. The vlog covers two V toys: The bop bag, and the official “Enemy Visitor” doll, which I wrote about back in 2005. You anti-Vimeo people can also watch it on YouTube. All offic

  • New Feature: Eight Great Comic Book Ads!

    For reference, whenever a new feature is published, I’ll post a small message on the blog. This is mainly because features don’t appear in the site’s feed. (Speaking of which, finally got the Feedburner deal set up.) Anyway, yes, there is a new feature up, about Eight Gre

  • Spikey Bulba eats donuts.

    A quick run to Dunkin Donuts for a Big Ass Coffee has changed my life for the better. Check out this little standee: Yeah, of course I pocketed it. Dunkin Donuts has a ton of promotions going on for Men in Black 3, from cosmic cocoa coffees to star-shaped donuts. Way more interesting than

  • Vlog: 1989 Talking Freddy Krueger Doll.

    I wasn’t planning to post anything tonight, but I thought five minutes of me rambling about a decades-old Freddy Krueger doll was better than nothing. EDIT: If you’re having trouble watching that on Vimeo, you can see it on grainy stupid YouTube by clicking here. Hard to believ
