Christmas Songs VI on the Purple Stuff Podcast!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

It’s astounding how quickly this year has flew by. That’s both good and bad because who wants this crappy year to drag on any longer than it has to, but at the same time, where the hell does time go? We’re already approaching 2021 and that blows my mind. For now though, it’s time for our annual Yuletide celebration on The Purple Stuff Podcast! Hopefully, a moose mug of egg nog and this episode will help you travel to that marshmallow world where all the BS of life vanishes for an hour.

We have arrived at our 6th installment of our annual Christmas Songs show! These are some of the most fun episodes for us and we hope you enjoy this one as much as you have in the past. Both Matt from DinoDrac and I love having Christmas songs on during the holidays and we compile songs that we think should have the spotlight each year. In our new installment, we’ve got quite an array of tunes including The Power Rangers and Kurt Russell! You read that correctly 🙂 There’s also a couple of tracks I highly doubt you will be hearing anyone else talk about this season so stay tuned for those as well.

Enjoy the episode and let us know what you think. A huge thank you goes out to you if you are reading this and always listening to the podcast, it’s so very much appreciated. On a personal note, I truly appreciate you supporting Sludge Central as well, i.e the occassional videos, the less frequent posts, the Sammi Curr swag and other product releases here and there.  It’s beyond awesome of you! I wish you Happy Holidays and a kickass new year that is exponentially better than the current one!

Purple Stuff Podcast: 2001 Thanksgiving Day Parade!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

It’s so hard to believe that the holidays are here are already. This year has obviously been abysmal for so many reasons, so The Purple Stuff Podcast is here to at least give you some good holiday feels. We’ve covered Thanksgiving Parades of the past on the show before, but this time we opted to go a little more modern. 2001 seemed like a perfect choice. The Tri State area was still in mourning after 9/11, NYC especially. What made this parade significant, was not only that it marked the 75th anniversary of the parade itself, but also the fact that the show went on despite the devastation that occurred in September. The idea was to come together with the American spirit at a difficult time and try to enjoy this annual tradition.

I watch the parade every year. As a person who isn’t the most hardcore Thanksgiving fan, the parade is a must for me, in fact, it’s not Thanksgiving without it. I could easily do without Turkey and Sweet Potatoes, but not without the parade. In the long lineage of the Macy’s Parade, this is one of the standouts, a show filled with a ton of uplifting, positive vibes.

In this episode, Matt from Dino Drac and I feast on a few of our favorite moments from the parade. It’s a given that these choices are probably not what you’d expect, well, aside from WWE, that’s an obvious selection. We’re also discussing Usher, Kenny G, Tim Curry and Pikachu!

Purple Stuff Podcast: The Great Pumpkin and Garfield’s Halloween Adventure!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

As the Halloween season enters the home stretch, The Purple Stuff Podcast is back with a new episode that will surely bring Halloween memories flooding back. In our new episode, Matt from Dinosaur Dracula and I break down the fine details of the original broadcast of Garfield’s Halloween Adventure from October 1985. Although it was the first airing of Garf’s special, it also served as a lead-in to the annual tradition It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.  Not only do we get into the specials themselves, but also the commercials that aired during the breaks.

This is the perfect time capsule to October 1985. Considering these are two of the most iconic animated Halloween specials ever, it doesn’t get much more festive for Halloween than this. Join us to hear about Linus’ badassery, Binky’s workout regimen, a hot theme song for sandy cereal, and a TRU commercial that’s pure Halloween eye candy. This is a fun one and we hope you enjoy it. You can check it out wherever you listen to podcasts, i.e Spotify, Apple Podcasts etc. Thanks for being a part of the spooky season with us and have a Happy Halloween!

The Purple Stuff Podcast recently turned 5 years old. What’s even more preposterous is that we’ve never done a show on VAMPIRES! Well, here it is folks.

Purple Stuff Podcast: Christmas Songs V!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

I feel ridiculous typing here every so often that the time flies by so fast. Whenever I actually do post, it certainly feels like we’re in light speed. Can you believe that this is the 5th installment of The Purple Stuff Podcast’s Christmas Songs show? It’s the holiday season and everyone is bracing themselves for that high level of family interaction, those often awkward gift situations, and way more food that any normal human being should be ingesting. All I can say is thank God for Tequila 🙂

Naturally, I’m half joking. I do enjoy the most wonderful time of the year, although with each year that passes, the holidays aren’t the holidays without the TUNES! To me, music makes the holidays. You’re well familiar with my love for Halloween music hence the annual Spooky Songs shows that Dinosaur Dracula and I do. Think about it though, can you really picture a wonderful December day close to the 25th where you’re in an ugly Christmas sweater sipping egg nog from a Marty Moose mug and you DON’T have imaginary eight notes and quarter notes from Christmas songs subtly dancing on air around the room?

This year we delve even deeper into our playlists. We’re presenting 10 songs that deserve some airplay on your bluetooth speaker this year. You’ll hear everything from Glow Worm Wackyness to Home Alone 2 hilarity on this episode. There’s no better week to listen to our Christmas songs show than right now!

Thank you for listening to the podcast and coming to this website. We truly appreciate your support! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family! We look forward to more fun in 2020. Also, a very special thank you to all of our PATRONIES!

Purple Stuff Podcast: Universal Monsters!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

Halloween is here! The season has flown by unusually fast this year. If you’re like me, you’re savoring every last bit of it. To assist with that, The Purple Stuff Podcast is back with a new episode for you. We hope you will check it out as you’re making final tweaks to your costumes, or just hanging with your friends having some Pumpkin beer. Our subject this time around is one that permeates pop culture this time of year: The Universal Monsters!

You’d be hard pressed to find a horror or Halloween fan who doesn’t have at least a small portion of their heart dedicated to one of the classic roster of Universal Monsters. Even if you’ve never seen any of the original films, you likely have an affinity for Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman, Bride of Frankenstein, The Creature, and The Invisible Man. Their likenesses have been with us our whole lives via movies, advertising, toys, and cartoons. Halloween is always better when they’re around in some fashion.

This episode of The Purple Stuff Podcast is dedicated to various incarnations of these characters. Par for the course, you won’t be hearing the typical entries from us. Matt from Dino Drac and I bring up some of our favorite instances of these horror icons that don’t get a lot of attention. It’s a fun one as we discuss breakfast cereal, action figures, and music videos. Hope this helps enhance your Halloween season! It’s not over yet Bay-bay!

As always, thank you for your continued support! We wouldn’t be able to do this without you. Thank you for reading, listening, and watching our exploits. If you would like to support the show, we’re on Patreon! Each month we record a special bonus show for our Patronies there. Other than that, have you watched The Sexy Armpit Halloween Special yet?

Purple Stuff Podcast: SPOOKY SONGS!

What makes the Halloween season special is ambiance. Think of it as a bubbling cauldron, to concoct your brew you have to customize your ingredients. Some people don’t fathom how into Halloween I am, but it just seems like they aren’t doing much to enhance their season. To easily stimulate the feels of the season, one must accentuate their own personal traditions.

There are those who like to burn pumpkin candles, hang orange, green and purple string lights inside, and watch a horror movie each night of October. It can be as simple or as intricate as you desire. Many of our friends, readers, and listeners come up with amazing Mood Tables inspired by Dinosaur Dracula. This originated as a table Matt made that featured items that gave him the Halloween feeling. For me, a huge part of the season for as long as I can remember is the TUNES!

Such an easy way to add to the ambiance of your Halloween celebration is to make a spooky playlist. Matt and I have been presenting ours on The Purple Stuff Podcast for several years now and it’s one of the most fun shows we do. In this episode, we’ve got a whole new playlist for you and we hope it adds to your Halloween ambiance. Check it out on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and wherever else you listen to podcasts. If you have a moment, leave us a positive review on iTunes, it would be very much appreciated.

Purple Stuff Podcast: EVIL CLOWNS!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

The Halloween Season has officially begun! This year, stores actually started putting candy and decorations out early, which I take as a good sign. It may not feel like the Halloween season 100% yet, but we are IN IT, so let’s get cracking. The Purple Stuff Podcast brings to you an episode all about EVIL CLOWNS! Whether they are dopey, fun, or sad, many of them are known to be scary A F, which lead many of you to grow up with an aversion to these face painted pranksters. For decades, they’ve been a prominent part of horror movie culture having their own sub-genre. And very likely, they occupy the part of your brain that stores nightmare fuel that leaks out while you are sleeping. In this new episode, me and Matt from Dino Drac are presenting you with our list of scary clowns in movies, TV and all around pop culture. From Pennywise to Poltergeist to Power Rangers we’ve got some good ones for you! Tune in via your favorite podcast app and if you would like to help support the show consider leaving us positive feedback on iTunes or any of the podcast apps.
