The Purple Stuff Podcast Goes to the Flea Market for Summer Saturdays!!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!!

Summer Saturdays on The Purple Stuff Podcast is going strong. Matt and I have been making the best of the scorching hot days on the pod. In the background all I can think about is how the Halloween season is almost here. Knowing that my favorite season is creeping up on us is fueling me although first, we’ve got to make it through these hot summer days. We do just that on the new episode of the podcast. This episode finds us at the local Flea Market.

Englishtown Flea Market is basically the Mos Eisley of New Jersey sans the spaceport aspect. Sum and Villainy you know what I’m saying. Of course I’m kidding, everyone who sells there is usually very nice, or as nice as someone can be when standing outside in the dirt in 97 degree heat selling 3 old picture frames and a plugged tire from a 1990 Toyota Corolla. Matt and I have been frequenting this place for a while and we decided that we’d pay them a visit as part of our Summer Saturdays series of shows. Flea Markets can take place all year round obviously, but here in the trip-state area, the outdoor jams are pretty much exclusive to the summer months. No one wants to be shopping for bootleg power rangers in -12 degrees wearing snow boots. It’s probably just as abysmal as it is in the heat and humidity though!

We made it through and each grabbed a few things that we discuss on the show. At this point, anything we wind up doing turns into a freaking debacle and this one was a fun one. Maybe while I was there sweating my ass off covered in dirt it didn’t seem like that much of a blast, but listen in and you’ll get a feel for an authentic, outdoor Jersey flea market. There’s an array of junk we came home with, we whip out loot bags, tape cleaners, we open up some trading cards, and even do a taste test, not of the cards obviously.

Take a listen wherever you enjoy your podcasts! We appreciate any positive reviews you feel like leaving and as always, spread the word! If you know someone who is like us, tell them about the podcast, they may dig it. Thank you for being on board, it’s way more fun this way. We also have a Patreon where you can get monthly bonus shows if you want MORE! Keep cool, we will be back next week!

THE PURPLE STUFF PODCAST’S SUMMER SATURDAYS KICKS OFF!!!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

The hot, blazing summer has come for all of us. Just think, if we make it out alive we are one step closer to the Halloween season! At least that’s my incentive to persevere through these hellish, humid days. Even though it’s my least favorite season, I admit that theres so much to enjoy about it. If you can deal with swamp ass and drenching back sweat then you’ll have no problem appreciating the finer things that the summer has to offer. To encapsulate it all into one tiny nostalgic trip, The Purple Stuff Podcast is very excited to bring to you SUMMER SATURDAYS! We look at this as a way for you to savor the summer while sipping Shasta cans in the yard.

What is Summer Saturdays you ask? Essentially, me and Matt will be bringing you a new podcast every Saturday throughout July focusing on some of the highlights of summer for us. We’ll be presenting a variety of different themes during this extravaganza, but first, to kick things off, we have a music show for you compiling our summer playlists. You know us by now, we intentionally try to avoid the typical fare in favor of spotlighting the slightly more obscure stuff.

Whacked out is the best way to describe the variety on this episode. From songs heard in horror films to more songs heard in horror films to a member of the Mickey Mouse Club, to The Lost Boys on the beach, to fun with Phoebe Cates it’s just bananas. Check this one out if you’re chilling by your pool, doing yard work, *PAINTING THE FENCE, or just living that sloth life on your couch in the air conditioning. It’s a fun way to kick off your summer and we’ve got a lot more in store for you this month so stay tuned!

Thank you for listening to the show! If you would like to support The Purple Stuff Podcast we greatly appreciate your help! You can spread the word to friends IRL, leave us a positive review on iTunes, share us on social media, or join in the fun on our Patreon where we present a monthly bonus show exclusively for our “Patronies.” Thanks again and we hope your summer kicks ass.

*Can you name what movie this references? That’s another hint to a movie that gets brought up in this episode thanks to the awesome summer song!

 

 

Purple Stuff Podcast: WITCHES!!!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

Monsters and ghosts get talked about the most. Many would say that demons and ghouls are just as cool. What about the witches? Whether you prefer the historical lore of the witch trials or the more macabre evil queens of magic, witches have provided us with so much spooky entertainment. For people like us, witches are also a huge aspect of our favorite season of the year. Halloween and witches are basically synonymous, but almost to the point where we’re desensitized to them. In the new episode of the Purple Stuff Podcast, we’re commending our favorite witches from pop culture despite how despicable their acts may be…or their faces!

Consider the massive amount of notorious witches, we literally had to conjure up a spell to settle on 5 selections each. Think about it for a sec an you’ll be able to name at least 10 cool witches that you have an affinity for. In this show Matt and I chose witches we adore from movies (made for cable and theatrical), and commercials. Even though we had to leave so many on the table, we’re confident that you will enjoy hearing about the likes of Charal and a certain green ruler of Winkie Country.  We also delve into the enchanting ways of the hideously horny Sarah Sanderson and the snoring sorcerer herself, Helena Markos!

This weekend, invite your coven, kindle up your cauldron, and hole up in your crib for a listen to this new episode! You can listen here or subscribe on your favorite podcast app. If you are interested in supporting our show you can leave us a positive 5 star review on iTunes OR head over to our Patreon page where we present an exclusive monthly bonus show! As always, thank you so much for listening and reading!

 

Purple Stuff Podcast: TV Themes Part 2!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!!

In many ways, I’ve spent my life prepping for the crap that Dino Drac and I discuss on the Purple Stuff Podcast. Who knew that all those hours as a couch potato on those summer days that were too sweltering to even swim under the sun would actually prove to be useful someday. Well, useful is a stretch, but all those memories certainly fuels our Mr. Fusion of inconsequential nostalgia. For a little trip back in time to when TV sitcoms ruled our world and they were only available through that giant box in your living room, dial up our first TV Theme Songs show from May 2016!

If you don’t need the refresher, well, as Freddy said, WELCOME TO PRIME TIME BITCH! We’ve got 10 TV Themes to discuss and dissect. We don’t only talk about the music, we also get into the details of the actual intros themselves in some cases. No matter what, these are some oddball choices as always. You’ll hear everything from Harry and The Hendersons to Jem! Things are about to get weird so take a listen on your favorite podcast app. Thank you for listening and feel free to add your favorite TV Themes in the comments!

If you dig the show and would like to support the show you can share the show on social media, or recommend The Purple Stuff Podcast to one of your friend IRL! So many people I know are through with social media altogether that you may want to have an actual convo with them and say “Hey, this is a show I enjoy listening to and you may like it as well!” If you aren’t into that option, we would love it if you could give us a 5 star rating on iTunes. And last but not least, you can support us on Patreon for an exclusive monthly bonus show! www.Patreon.com/PurpleStuff Thanks again for listening and reading!

Purple Stuff Podcast: OLD, NEW STUFF!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

The first Purple Stuff Podcast episode of 2019 is here! It’s a brand new year and we’re bringing you a NEW episode filled with NEW stuff…well, OLD/NEW stuff. It’s very appropriate, mainly because what the hell else are we going to talk about in January?
Me and Matt from Dino Drac have compiled a list of stuff that incorporates NEW in it’s name. We made sure to steer clear of anything involving news, Bob Newby, or places like New Jersey or New York.
We’ve got quite an amusing mix of topics in this show. In this episode we delve into an underrated ’80s thriller, the further adventures of one of our favorite heroes…in space, little green creatures who terrorize an office building, and a musical act that had millions of girls screaming bloody murder…in a good way.
Now that the rules have been explained and hints have been dropped, take a listen on your favorite podcast app or at the link above!
Once again, thank you so much for listening and if you would like to support the show please visit Patreon.com/PurpleStuff where we post a special Patreon-only show each month!

Purple Stuff Podcast: Christmas Traditions!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

Ready or not, the holidays are here. To say that I am ill-prepared is an understatement. In the plus column though, a new episode of The Purple Stuff Podcast is on deck and all set to be fired up. Whether you are baking cookies, cleaning the house, or getting some last minute shopping done, whatever you find yourself doing you can make this episode your accompaniment since it’s Christmas cheer for your ears.

In this episode,  me and Matt explore various Christmas customs that we’ve taken part in through the years. We talk about foods we look forward to each year, stuff we watch, and in my case, a special recurring piece of clothing. Nothing beats reminiscing during the holidays over a cup of egg nog (It’s good, it’s good.) At first, I didn’t realize that I had so many little traditions until I really sat and thought about it. It turns out that I have quite a few and at least 3 or 4 didn’t even make the cut! Do you have any Christmas traditions that you find yourself doing every Christmas season?

If you are here reading this, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for reading, listening, and watching my various endeavors. It means a lot to me that you take the time and show your interest here. My blog began to become a ghost town the past couple of years but as indicated in the pretty recent past, I am easing back into things. Who knows what 2019 will bring in terms of unexpected events, but either way I am still keeping this trash heap alive mark my words!

Chances are this may be the last post of the year (If I have time, I might post something quick) so I hope you enjoy the holidays and get to spend them with your loved ones. As much as I prefer my solo solitude, being with my friends and family during Christmas time is what it’s all about. There’s literally no other thing I’d rather do during this season than just hang out with the important VIP people in my life. I’m very grateful and appreciative of all of you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Now go listen to that new episode ya’ filthy animals!

Purple Stuff Podcast: 1994 Thanksgiving Day Parade!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN!

Relinquishing my death grip on Halloween just ain’t gonna happen.  It never does. Even when the holidays start creeping up on us, I’m still bummed that WINTER IS COMING. I spend the rest of the year trying to engineer my life so it seems like it’s Halloween. That’s not to say that I don’t mildly enjoy the holidays! They deserve some love too. For example, Thanksgiving has always been a holiday that gets tossed aside by many in favor of focusing on Christmas. This is unfair and even I need to take the time to celebrate Thanksgiving and all the stuff…or stuffing that it represents. Let’s get to it.

On the latest Purple Stuff Podcast, me and Matt from Dinosaur Dracula are providing a feast for the ears. Join us as we go back to 1994 and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and discuss all the most notable moments from it. From Richard Simmons tossing his cookies to the Superstars of the WWF, this parade has a little bit of everything and much of it is totally whacked out. Enjoy the show and we hope it’s a nice appetizer for your big Thanksgiving dinner!
