  • Halloween Finds from Old Card Stores!

    For years now, I’ve been telling y’all that old greeting card stores are some of the best places to find ancient Halloween stuff. It was never a stretch: Locating these stores has been one of my Halloween rituals for a loooong time, and guys, they never disappoint. Since mom-and-pop gr

  • Halloween Finds from an old Party Store!

    We visited a random party store in Jersey, and guys, this place was a goldmine. Looked like it hadn’t been renovated since 1992. The layout of their mask section was SO old school. Taking that as a hint, I dug deeper and found tons of vintage Halloween thingies hiding in the aisles. Tak

  • Reese’s Puffs BATS Cereal: Video Taste Test!

    If you follow me on social media, you know that I’ve been going nuts trying to find that new bat-shaped version of Reese’s Puffs cereal. I love a happy ending: Yep, I finally found it! (I say “finally” as if finding a Halloween cereal during the first week of September is somehow o

  • Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes: Video Taste Test!

    Behold, my first big find of the 2018 Halloween season! Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes are in stores now, and guys, they are good. Maybe even grrrreat. I’ve never been the biggest pumpkin spice guy, but I like it when it works, and this stuff works. I figured it would, given that pretty mu

  • Dino Drac’s 2018 Halloween Countdown HAS BEGUN!

    There was this guy, Francis Bacon. English philosopher during the tail-end of the 1500s. I don’t know much about Mr. Bacon, but he had one really great quote: “In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.” Welcome to Dinosaur Dracula’s 2018 Halloween C

  • Funko’s Freddy and Jason HORROR CEREALS!

    Y’all heard the news about Funko’s amazing line of cereals, right? They all look interesting, but two were of particular interest to me. You can probably guess which! Yep, we now have officially licensed Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees BREAKFAST CEREALS. I still can’t believe it. I

  • Flea Market Finds: Video Edition!

    I didn’t want to let the summer slip by without hitting a flea market at least once, so this past Saturday, I braved the sun and swore to never do that again. The Englishtown flea market in New Jersey did not disappoint. It rarely does. This is the same flea market I’ve written about m

  • The Jaws Bar Ice Pop Taste Test!

    It is my great honor to introduce you to the coolest thing on Earth: THE JAWS BAR. If you listened to the last Purple Stuff episode, you heard us gush about these incredible shark-shaped treats, which are made in South Korea. So did our friend Nicole, who discovered that they were actually

  • Video: Talking Cryptkeeper “Beach Bum” Doll!

    Guys! I found the perfect subject for Cruel Summer’s first video: That thing. A Talking Cryptkeeper doll from 1993, where our pal is randomly dressed like a beach bum. Dude could be the mascot for Cruel Summer. Here’s everything you need to know about this sunny savage, in just under f

  • Christmas at Dollar Tree.

    Today’s video covers my Christmas shopping spree at Dollar Tree: Dollar Tree’s assortment of Xmas decorations and novelties is… interesting. During Halloween, they can get away with anything, since spooky stuff only seems to improve with cheapness and cheese. Christmas junk, on the o

  • Pepsi Christmas Cola from Japan!

    It wouldn’t be the holiday season without piles of ridiculous junk food to obsess over: Take this, for example. PEPSI CHRISTMAS COLA. It’s pretty much a direct sequel to Pepsi Halloween Cola, right down to the sad fact that you’ll need to import it from Japan and spend way more on sh

  • Hostess Peppermint Twinkies: Video Review!

    I’ve been quietly surveying all of the new-for-2017 holiday junk foods, and man, there sure are a lot of them. Good ones, too! Even if you’re not into the red-and-green season, I hope you can at least appreciate the fun garbage you’re gonna get to eat. Take these monsters, for exampl

  • Happy Halloween from Madd Matt!

    Happy Halloween, everyone! Thanks so much for being a part of Dino Drac’s 2017 Halloween Countdown. I was determined to get one last video done before November hit, and with a huge assist to caffeine, here we are: Madd Matt is back with one last bag of Halloween junk. Enjoy. Unfortu

  • Slimer Fruit Snacks, from 1991.

    If you don’t remember Slimer Fruit Snacks, don’t feel bad. Few people do! They arrived in 1991, a figurative minute before the original Real Ghostbusters cartoon went kaput. Slimer didn’t have much momentum in his attempt to take over the fruit snack market, but he sure put the effor

  • Matt Madd 2017: Halloween Junk Bag #3!

    Today was an all-in-one video day, so I am now deliriously tired and a sworn enemy of proper sentence structure. On the bright side… mission accomplished! Here’s the latest Madd Matt video: Madd Matt’s third bag of random Halloween junk for the 2017 season includes everything from a

  • Pepsi Halloween Cola: Video Taste Test!

    What was that old Jean Grey quote? Something about evolution leaping forward every few hundred millennia? Keep it in mind. PEPSI HALLOWEEN COLA. Yes, this is a real thing. Unfortunately, as of now, it’s only a thing that exists in Japan. I spent way too much money importing the stuff so

  • Madd Matt returns with more Halloween garbage.

    I wasn’t expecting to finish this tonight, but thank God I did, because the idea of having to sell a Madd Matt video early in the morning was making me sick. In MM’s second video for the 2017 Halloween season, he’s reviewing another bag of random Halloween junk. Seems lik

  • Dinosaur Dracula’s 2017 Halloween Countdown!

    There’s a scene in Hellraiser: Bloodline where these goofy twin brothers get twisted into one writhing Cenobite. For the next two months, that’s us. Welcome to Dinosaur Dracula’s 2017 Halloween Countdown. (WARNING: GORY! GO FULL-SCREEN ON YOUTUBE!) (You watched that, right? You’re

  • Madd Matt’s CVS Shopping Spree.

    It’s October! I know you’re all waiting for my Halloween Mood Table (Coming tomorrow!), but I wanted to celebrate the arrival of MONTH #10 with a special bonus weekend update. So here’s me, dressed like a vampire, reviewing 50 bucks’ worth of Halloween garbage. (CLICK HERE TO SEE

  • Dino Drac’s 2016 Halloween Countdown!

    Welcome, foolish mortals. Dinosaur Dracula’s 2016 Halloween Countdown… BEGINS… NOW. (WATCH FULL-SIZED ON YOUTUBE!) Thank you for that, Larry and Leviathan. Whatever that was. This is my favorite time of year. People who aren’t Halloween addicts may look at us like we’re p

  • Videos of my Bedroom, from 1992.

    When I think about my place in the world during the early ‘90s — let’s say from the 5th through the 9th grade — I’m revolted but appreciative. Revolted, because those were tough, lonely years, when I was as goofy and awkward as I’ll hopefully ever be. Too alien to mesh

  • Madd Matt reviews the Bigfoot Playset.

    Madd Matt returns with a new video! This time, he's reviewing Animal Planet's Bigfoot Playset. It comes with an eight-inch chocolate gorilla! Cameo appearances by Larry and Leviathan.

  • Madd Matt reviews old Rice Krispies.

    Matt Madd returns to review three really old boxes of Halloween-themed Rice Krispies cereal. That's his lot in life. Lay underground for most of the year, then take the stage a few times to talk about old cereal.

  • HALLOWEEN, 2014!

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN. For once in my life, I actually have plans tonight, so you’ll forgive me if this post has six more typos than usual. I hope you’ve enjoyed Dinosaur Dracula’s 2014 Halloween Countdown! To tell you the truth, I’m not at all ready for it to end. Even with over 40 revi
