Dino Drac After Dark

Friday the 13th Soundtrack!

Happy Friday the 13th! Hopefully you’re killing a bottle of wine while watching Jason kill camp counselors. If not, there’s this:

It’s the complete score to the original Friday the 13th, which I think you’ll enjoy even if you’re not big on the films. Some of the tracks are surprisingly understated, and the album on the whole works well as spooky background noise. Pair it with a scented candle and you’re all set.

Guys, it’s a Friday the 13th during the Halloween season, so make sure you do SOMETHING cool tonight. And “cool” doesn’t necessarily mean “go out,” either. Just stay up late and have a party-for-one, if that’s what it takes. Throw that giant frozen pizza in the oven, hang up some string lights and bust out the big blankets. And, of course, hang out on Dino Drac After Dark!

MOTU Toy Commercials!

This’ll sound like a weird thing to run during the Halloween Countdown, but hear me out…

Here’s an immense playlist of vintage Masters of the Universe toy commercials, because sooo many of those ads were 100% SPOOKY. Between the fog, the scary voice-over and all of those terrible monsters, they could feel almost like miniature horror movies. As a kid, this wasn’t lost on me. The commercials were fifty times more intense than the cartoon ever was. Enjoy!

Ghostbusters Music Video!

Today was A DAY, in all caps. If it could go wrong, it was gonna go wrong. I need a pick-me-up, and I’m gonna assume you do, too:

So here’s the official music video for Ray Parker Jr.’s smash hit, Ghostbusters. You may be surprised at how unfamiliar it seems. I mean, I’ve heard the song ten billion times, and I’m still convinced that I never saw the official video until 10 minutes ago. It’s very cool, and so uplifting. I feel better already.

Halloween Movie Trailers!

Here’s a fun one for tonight, suggested by Nubule. It’s a collection of trailers for every single movie in the Halloween franchise, from start to finish to restart to reboot to whatever the hell else happened in the middle. A breezy watch for a weeknight, but oh-so-perfect for the season.

I was a good boy today. Shot a new video, but decided not to start editing it until I wrote this new article, knowing that the video would take more than one afternoon to finish. So yay, a new article posted, and a new video coming tomorrow. Enjoy Michael Myers while you wait.
