  • Purple Stuff Podcast: The Vampire Show.

    Time to get spooky on the Purple Stuff Podcast! From now through Halloween, all of our shows will have a haunted slant. This season is gonna need all the help it can get, and we’re excited to do our part — starting now! This week, me and Jay from Sludge Central finally pay tribute

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: The Soda Show!

    I rarely drink soda these days, but it will forever be one of my passions. Everything about soda fascinates me. How it looks! How it tastes! How it’s packaged! How it’s marketed! Every soda has a story to tell, whether it’s a top dog with a million dollar ad campaign, or a no-name br

  • Purple Stuff tackles Friday the 13th: The Series!

    Friday the 13th: The Series had long been a blind spot for me, but now that I’ve gotten better acquainted, I’m on my way to becoming a big fan. Mix The X-Files into The Conjuring universe, and add several dashes of Tales from the Darkside. That’s the vibe. You won’t even miss Jason

  • Purple Stuff: Eight Great Sea Monsters!

    Every single one of you loves sea monsters. I do, too. Always have. Whether it’s a shark with a particular bloodlust or some giant leviathan with twisted sea horns and a big giant human feet, I’m all-in on every sea monster. Soooo, I’m happy to report that the latest Purple Stuff Pod

  • Purple Stuff: Eight Creepy Commercials!

    Some of my friends have been shielding themselves from the Perpetually Unsettling News with horror movies. I totally get it, because I’ve been doing it too. I guess it’s a matter of replacing bad and lasting scares with the good and fleeting kind? Considering his bladed glove, it’s i

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Shocktober ’92!

    It’s time for a very special episode of The Purple Stuff Podcast! For years, you’ve heard us wax nostalgic about WPIX’s old Shocktober horror movie marathons. Hell, I’ve even written giant articles about it. (Several, actually.) Today, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit are gonna reli

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: DICK TRACY!

    If someone who’d never previously seen Dick Tracy watched it right this second, I wonder what they’d think. Even if they liked it, could they possibly get why people like me are still so obsessed with it? Without the experience of being “of age” during the summer of 1990, I’m not

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Christmas Songs, Part 5!

    The Purple Stuff Podcast’s holiday tradition continues! (Hopefully just in time for us to accompany you on a weekend full of last-minute holiday errands!) Get set for another batch of AWESOME CHRISTMAS TUNES. This is the fifth volume in the series, so now we’re really starting to dig d

  • The 1990 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

    We’re less than a week away from Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite days of the year, full of food, family and a weird ass parade where people ooh and aah at big-eyed kaiju balloons. Me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit wanted to continue our tradition of reviewing ancient Macy’s Parad

  • Purple Stuff: 10 Awesome Xmas Commercials!

    We’re kicking off the Purple Stuff Podcast’s 2019 holiday season with one of our most-requested episodes: CHRISTMAS COMMERCIALS. It’s one of my favorite subjects! This week, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit celebrate 10 of our favorite Christmassy TV ads, covering everything from the

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Universal Monsters!

    We wanted to do something extra Halloweeny for the Purple Stuff Podcast’s big October episode, so hey, let’s dive into the UNIVERSAL MONSTERS. Course, if you’re looking for discussion about the classic movies, this isn’t the podcast for you. Me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit tackle t

  • Purple Stuff: Spooky Songs Part VI!

    It’s that time of year again! The Purple Stuff Podcast is back with the sixth edition of Spooky Songs. It’s probably our favorite type of show to record! If you weren’t around for the last five editions, this is where we select tracks that y’all need to add to your Halloween playli

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Evil Clowns!

    While Dino Drac’s Halloween Countdown doesn’t start until next Friday, it seems like many of you are counting this weekend as the official start of the spooky season. Well, good news: So is the Purple Stuff Podcast! As some of you will remember, our show was originally conceived as a H

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Pizza Party!

    Geez, I wasn’t sure if we’d make our deadline on this. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when not accomplishing something would be a total disaster. Just in the nick of time, here’s the concluding episode of the Purple Stuff Podcast’s SUMMER SATURDAYS event! This week, me and

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Flea Market Adventure!

    Summer Saturdays continues on the Purple Stuff Podcast! We decided to go on a little adventure for you guys, despite the 5000 degree weather: This week’s show covers our trip to the Englishtown Flea Market in New Jersey, which longtime readers should remember from several older Dino Drac

  • Purple Stuff: Summer Q and A!

    First off, thanks for the big response to the Purple Stuff Podcast’s SUMMER SATURDAYS event. Last week’s ep did sweet numbers by our standards, and we appreciate the encouragement to continue blathering into microphones in extremely hot rooms with the AC turned off. This week’s episo

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: Summer Songs!

    So if you didn’t hear the news, we’ll be releasing a new Purple Stuff Podcast every Saturday, all through July… starting today! It’s our SUMMER SATURDAYS event, celebrating the (admittedly few) things we love about these stupid boiling hot months. Me and Jay from The Sexy Armpi

  • Purple Stuff: The Upside Down Whopper!

    Yesterday, Burger King unveiled the UPSIDE DOWN WHOPPER, a special tie-in with Stranger Things. There were a few catches, of course. It was only available on June 21st, and only at eleven locations throughout the country. Fortunately, one of those locations was in Manhattan — so me

  • The Purple Stuff Podcast discovers NEW COKE!

    If you didn’t hear the big news, Coca-Cola is dusting off NEW COKE as part of a special partnership with Stranger Things. (The show’s third season is set in 1985, smack in the middle of New Coke’s shaky debut.) This past Thursday, thousands of us struggled to place orders on New Coke

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: 10 Wonderful Witches!

    Make some tea, hit the lights and pray for a thunderstorm, because the latest episode of The Purple Stuff Podcast is gonna put you in a Halloween mood. This week, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit pay tribute to ten of our favorite pop culture WITCHES. We’re tackling movies like The Craft,

  • Purple Stuff: Wrestlers Gone Hollywood!

    Guys, I’m nervous. For the first time since 1994, I’m going to WrestleMania. So many conflicting emotions! It’s sure to be a great show and there’s no way I wanna miss a potential Becky win on the grandest stage of ‘em all, but… 80000 people? In broad daylight?! Eeeek. As has b

  • Purple Stuff: More TV Theme Songs!

    Three years ago, we released a Purple Stuff episode all about TV theme songs, with favorites ranging from Amen to Growing Pains. Obviously, we couldn’t name all of our favorite themes in a single episode, so we’re finally back for Round 2: This week, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit cel

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: The RED Show!

    At right around this time last year, we published our Purple Stuff GREEN SHOW — that being a tribute to 10 great green things. It was intended to kick off a series of color-themed shows, so here we are with #2! This week, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit unleash our RED SHOW. We’

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: ALIENS!

    I’ve been into space aliens for as long as I can remember. Whenever Unsolved Mysteries did a UFO segment, I led their cheering section. Whenever a flying saucer turned up on the cover of Weekly World News, I’d buy the issue. Aliens are one of my forever-jams. Jay from The Sexy Armpit i

  • Purple Stuff Podcast: New Old Stuff!

    It’s a new year for the Purple Stuff Podcast, so we’re gonna celebrate with a show about new things. New old things, I mean. This week, me and Jay from The Sexy Armpit tackle all sorts of new old stuff. From New Coke to Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning, so long as
