Dinosaur Dracula!

Lightning Gremlin Figure!

It’s been weeks since I’ve put anything of substance on Dinosaur Dracula, but man, I had a good reason. Working with some new folks on some new things, and it’s been a blast so far.

I love what I’m doing, but I haaaate the timing. I didn’t even get a whole month to enjoy the new site smell (mulberry) before I started treating Dino Drac like X-E.

Tonight, a small peace offering. A hunk of blue plastic shaped like a Gremlin.

Okay, hate to pull an aside in Minute One, but let’s go back to that.  “Gremlin.” When referring to the species and not the movie title, should it be capitalized?  It never looks right to me when it isn’t. (Which is strange, because “mogwai” seems fine without a big M.) Somebody tell me.

What you’re looking at up there is NECA’s incredible Lightning Gremlin figure, a Toys “R” Us exclusive that had me dusting off the Charleston right there in Aisle 17.

Sweet heaven, a Lightning Gremlin action figure.

Well, sort of. Read More…

Friday the 13th!

I’m not quite ready to come out of my cave, but you don’t get a chance to wish strangers on the Internet a happy Friday the 13th often.

HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH!

Speaking of which, here’s a promo I worked on for EPIX’s all-day Friday the 13th marathon, which is happening as I type this:

Thanks to creative director JB and editor AM for spending way too much time making the movies seem friendly.

Also, notice the wacky signs? I shot those in the woods and have the bug bites to prove it.

This was just one of the many projects that turned me into such an awful webmaster over the last several weeks. I’m trying to remember how to run a website. I know it involved my camera and a lot of adjectives. Gonna spend tonight piecing together the rest. See you soon!

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 to this once it passes.

I’m finally over the hump, but I’d say there’s about a week left before I can really dive back into the site. But, I’ll be back with fun stuff soon enough. Hope everyone had a great 4th, even if it was doomed as a midweek blip.  See you soon!

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 why Carlo’s so great. It’s no tall order. Only the worst cynics, the jerks who are contrary just for the sake of it, wouldn’t be able to. Read More…
