As a kid, my thoughts on the future were fully built by Movies, cartoons, toys, and clothing trends. Obviously, The Jetsons still get referenced as a popular view of the future. In many ways we are advanced, but we’re still not zooming around in flying cars or eating dinner pellets. On the new episode of The Purple Stuff Podcast, Dinosaur Dracula and I bring a pretty rag-tag group of things that were futuristic to us when we were kids. It was quite a fun exploration of stuff, including The Terminator, the Laser Tag phenomenon, Hypercolor clothing, and a rad Rick Springfield music video. As always, there were still so many selections that we didn’t have a chance to present. As you listen to this episode on your podcast app on your phone or your fancy computer, think about the technology we have compared to where pop culture expected us to be at by this time! I hope you enjoy the episode and thanks for listening!

We had some technical glitches hit us recently but The Purple Stuff Podcast has returned! In our new episode Matt and I explore some of our favorite robots from various facets of pop culture. At first I didn’t realize how many robots I had an affinity for. As usual with us, we leaned more to the obscure than the obvious choices which made it more fun. In this ep, we touch on a BIG animated ’80s bot, a mechanical murderer loose in the mall, a freaky Frankenstein friend, and many more. Take a listen on your usual podcast app!

The Force Awakens…it’s so close that I can feel the force flowing through me! We’ve waited so long and now it’s only a couple of weeks away. Getting a new Star Wars film is quite a Christmas present, that’s for sure. You’ll need something to keep you occupied until December 18th (or 17th depending on when you’re seeing it!) so Matt and I decided it was our duty as Jedi to bring you a podcast celebrating our love of Star Wars in honor of The Force Awakens. Available now, is our show where we discuss all of our “Force Flashbacks.” There’s Star Wars nostalgia and memories galore, so enjoy it and May the Force Be With YOU!
