LISTEN TO THE SHOW HERE!
A new Purple Stuff episode is available to listen to NOW! After the seriously amazing response from our Friday the 13th episode, the logical next step is to head down to the boiler room. For those hoping to hear Matt and I have a horrific run-in with Freddy Krueger, you’re in luck!
Many of our local peeps are at the Monster Mania convention in New Jersey right now. While Matt and I didn’t make it to the con this time, we’re there in spirit. We may even invade your earbuds and bluetooth speakers in your hotel rooms while you’re drinking post-con. A show covering one of our favorite horror franchises is ready for you to hear. The NMOES series is so beloved, especially by our generation, and we wanted to record a show all about these films and the ways that they stuck with us all these years.
During our little trip to Elm Street, you’ll hear us discuss everything from cool movie moments, to action figures, to drinking with the Dream Warriors themselves. We’ll even give you a ton of fodder to discover for yourself on YouTube. We had a lot of fun recording this one, as we usually do, but if you’re a Freddy fanatic, this one is for you!
*WARNING* If you listen to this one late at night…whatever you do, DON’T FALL ASLEEP! Thanks for reading and listening to us. We appreciate all of your support and you can help out the show by subscribing on iTunes and leaving positive feedback for us!
After the latest Purple Stuff Podcast caused a bit of a controversy, it’s been requested that I explain myself.
Last Friday, Matt and I posted our Friday the 13th episode. It was basically our love letter to Friday the 13th. We gushed about all of our favorite Jason Voorhees related scenes, moments, and personal anecdotes. Toward the end, I shared a story about a time that I saw Freddy staring back at me in a French Friday the 13th Part V poster. At the time, no one could see what I saw. It became a joke about me being inebriated, but I was dead serious.
I was terrible at those Magic Eye posters that I referenced in the show. Back when they were popular, I was seriously like Willam from Mallrats, I could NEVER see the picture in them. The Mallrats one-sheet even had a Magic Eye poster on it for Pete’s sake and I couldn’t fathom that. Of course, art is open to interpretation. What one person sees may not be the same as what someone else sees. Once the latest Purple Stuff was posted, I was getting a flood of angry feedback as if I was trying to sell everyone snake oil. I want to make clear, and I also stated in the show, this is just my point of view. I have no idea who even made the poster from back then so it’s just my own little vision. Then again, when we’re hanging out Matt and I sometimes see Dewbacks resting in the street outside of my condo, so go figure.
Since I was put to the task by many online friends so far, I decided to try to attempt to explain what I’m seeing. If you can’t see it, I don’t blame you, but I hope you do, cause I think it’s more fun that way!
