Won’t Somebody Please Think Of Morbid!

Sally StruthersHERE, NOW – It’s that time again! Time for me to ask that you please help support the site with your hard-earned dough. Last time went pretty well, but this time I’m going a different route by echoing the successful CCF commercials featuring Sally Struthers I hated so much.

So here goes nothing:

ANNOUNCER: For about one dollar you can buy a can of soda, regular or diet. For Dreamin’ Demon, a dollar a month can help feed a site administrator, like Morbid, nourishing meals from area gas stations.

For one dollar you can also buy a cup of coffee. For one dollar a month you can help a “writer” like Morbid get the alcohol he needs to read and write all the depressing articles featured on Dreamin’ Demon on a daily basis.

For one dollar you can buy a pack of gum, plain or sugarless. For one dollar a month, you can help a forum moderator, like Morbid, receive treatment for the various STDs he picks up from online hookups.

2014-01-23_101726Here, Now – First, let me personally thank each and every one of you who have pledged. We have only been using Patreon for about a month and, overall, I am happy with it. I haven’t spammed the Patreon page over the last couple of weeks, so pledging has stalled a bit, but I have no doubt we can reach a monthly pledge amount that will allow me to remove all banner ads from the site.

For those of you unaware, we have decided to use Patreon in an attempt to crowdfund the site. You can read the long explanation over on our Patreon page. But the short story is the site keeps getting more expensive, but the ad revenue does not change. I could use shitty ads that pop-up\under or fly-over, but I hate those and most of you are probably using some kind of ad-blocking software.

So we though we would see what would happen if we tried not sucking up to advertisers and relied solely on our fanbase for funding, allowing us to focus purely on beautiful, uncensored content.…

Pulpit of Doom Podcast 01-31-2014

February 3, 2014 at 7:46 am by  

Dick slappedHere, Now – Thanks to everyone who showed up to Friday night’s surprisingly sober edition of the Pulpit of Doom Podcast in which I was joined by Jaded and our new writer, Adam.

In this week’s podcast we talked about the top 10 stories circulating on the site, including freezing to death, the Arthur G. Dozier Reform School for Boys, burning toddler’s genitals with a hair dryer, car seat murder motives, and why being dick slapped is funny.

At the end of the show, Jaded listened in fascinated silence as Adam and myself discussed horror films for almost an hour, and decided that we will try to do a second weekly podcast dedicated to horror movies. I will get you the details on this as soon as I have them.

As usual, keep up to date with all site related news on our Facebook Page, Twitter, or the Demon’s Den forums. If you’d like to be reminded when the next Pulpit of Doom podcast is about to air, simply follow us on Blog Talk Radio. …

Dreamin’ Demon Is Creating Horrible News Update 2

January 23, 2014 at 10:25 am by  

2014-01-23_101726Here, Now – It’s only been two weeks since we signed on with Patreon, and already we have 96 patrons with a combined monthly pledge of $450. This warms my black heart and shows we are totally capable being totally independent without the need for advertisers.

For those of you unaware, we have decided to use Patreon in an attempt to crowdfund the site. You can read the long explanation over on our Patreon page. But the short story is the site keeps getting more expensive, but the ad revenue does not change. I could use shitty ads that pop-up\under or fly-over, but I hate those and most of you are probably using some kind of ad-blocking software.

So, as a test, we though we would see what would happen if we tried not sucking up to advertisers and relied solely on our fanbase and get back to not caring what we post or how we post it. Patreon may just be the way we achieve that, while still making enough revenue to keep the site up and running.…

Dreamin’ Demon Is Creating Horrible News Update

January 16, 2014 at 11:25 am by  

ddHere, Now - It’s only been a week since we signed on with Patreon, and already we have 83 pledgers with a combined monthly pledge of $350. I think that’s a good sign we are well on our way to becoming totally independent without the need for advertisers, while still being able to keep the lights on.

For those of you who may have missed my spamming, or have ignored the big ass banner at the top of the page, we have decided to use Patreon in an attempt to fund the site. You can read the long explanation over on our Patreon page, but the short story is that we are attempting to become totally crowd-funded.

I have been running the site for 10 years come this April, and in that time I’ve tried varying methods to increase revenue to keep up with rising server costs, while also adding some things fans have been asking for for years – mainly merchandise. We tried playing nice after Google dropped us from their Adsense program a few years back, even toning down or language and comments, but we just haven’t been able to make good ad revenue since, especially when looking at the traffic we get.…

Dreamin’ Demon Is Creating Horrible News

January 8, 2014 at 3:50 pm by  

PatreonHere, Now – As we quickly approach our 10 year anniversary, we’d like to make some changes for 2014. In particular, we’d like to turn off the red light and quit whoring it up for potential advertisers.

After some discussions at the end of last year, I came to the conclusion that I’d like to get back to the raunchier D’D from the days of old. We’ve tried to play nice in an attempt to win over some better paying advertising and found ourselves all dressed up with no one to blow.

After checking out a handful of different fundraising type sites, we have settled on Patreon. I have created a Patreon page, like a lot of other independent content creators, in hopes that I can shrug off the shackles of advertisers’ content restrictions while still bringing in some kind of revenue.

Patreon allows people in my position to ask for monthly pledges from their fans. Currently that pledge is one, whole dollar. This can be paid via credit card or Paypal and can be easily cancelled at any time.…

Pulpit of Doom Podcast: 11-22-2013

November 30, 2013 at 9:14 pm by  

drunkHere, Now – Normally I post our Pulpit of Doom podcasts the Monday following the night we record them, but here is one from last week that I never got a chance to post because of the server issues we were experiencing. This was a total drunkcast with myself and Jaded.

I would love to tell you what the hell we talked about, but these stories sometimes bleed together. It didn’t help that I was slurring through most of it and brought up stories that weren’t even in the top 10 list – including the guy who fist raped some chick’s asshole.

Speaking of the podcasts, we are moving the Pulpit of Doom from Thursday nights at 9:30 Eastern (the night the women said was best for them) to Friday nights 9:30 Eastern (the night the women said was best for them). Go figure. I try to announce these things on the day of the podcast, but to make things even easier you can simply follow us on our BTR page and you will get an email reminder.…

Pulpit of Doom Podcast: 9-27-2013

September 28, 2013 at 4:03 pm by  

GWARHere, Now – If you missed last night’s Pulpit of Doom, you missed one in which Athena and Jaded joined me for an old fashioned, Friday night Drunkcast. You can listen to it below and read the chat transcript here.

The entire thing is a blur to me, but I don’t think I’ve laughed that much in a while. Although, I did receive word that my “hick motherfucker” accent became more pronounced the more I enjoyed my Kraken.

I do know we talked about the top 10 stories on the site for the last week, including hot car babies, sucker punching strangers, menstruation, killer baggage carousels, women who rape children, and moronic vigilante justice.

I vaguely recall me and Athena getting into an argument over what constitutes a murder charge, me saying the word’s “little girl’s asshole” as well as explaining how to use a turd to avoid a stiff sentence for murder, and Jaded explaining why her kids were never raped at knife-point by a roommate.

After we went off the air, we bullshitted for another 30 minutes about a bunch of stuff, including Athena and Jaded expressing their extreme jealously over my taste in great music. …

Major Upgrade To The Demon’s Den Completed

August 19, 2013 at 9:53 am by  

The Demons DenHere, Now – We have completed our overhaul of The Demon’s Den forums and they are open for business.

As many of you longtime members already know, Dreamin’ Demon originated as a forum that was later expanded to what you know and love now.

The forums remained, and are the seedy underbelly of the site – populated by some of our longest, and most dedicated readers – and the Reality Bites section is where the majority of our front page news comes from.

But after six years of using vBulletin forum software, we made the transition to Xenforo over the last week. Luckily, aside from one week’s worth of data, we were able to import over six years of data into the new forums, so all the threads, posts and member data remained intact.

I could go into why we decided to make this change to Xenforo is a much better experience for the user, as well as us admins, but it’s easier to say it’s best to experience for yourself.…

Pulpit of Doom Podcast 7-11-2013

July 12, 2013 at 8:14 am by  

outhouseHere, Now – Thanks to Athena for helping me host another Pulpit of Doom Podcast last night, as well as all of you who showed up to chat live while we were on air. That’s one of the best crowds of people we’ve had in awhile.

In last night’s episode, we began with my heartfelt thanks to all of you who have donated to the site over the last few days – no matter the amount. My goal was to get an entire year of server costs paid for, and within 3 short days, we’re halfway there.

As a site owner\writer, nothing fuels me more than a good ego-stroking and knowing I’ve created a site people like enough to donate money to. I still hate asking for dough, but my pride was a hell of a lot easier to swallow when washed down with the notes of encouragement I’ve received. You guys are the best, I don’t care what your friends and family say about you.

Ok, enough of that sappy shit.…

Dreamin’ Demon Needs You! Again.

July 9, 2013 at 2:04 pm by  

aint to proud to begHere, Now – It’s that time again, dear readers. Time for your not-so-humble host to ask for your help in keeping this crazy train rolling by donating some of your hard earned cash.

As a lot of you know, I have been operating D’D for nine years. In that time, it has been funded totally out of pocket and with the help of some of our fans who’ve dedicated their time, money or both.

We’re not owned by a a company or affiliated with anyone, so making money off a crime site has been a bumpy road. We’ve been dropped or rebuked by Google, Yahoo, Bing, and a host of other higher paying advertisers because of our “inappropriate content.”

We could have softened things up a bit, but we felt that changing the tone of the site would take away from why people visit and, ultimately, why I even bother doing it.

To compensate, I am signed on with lower-paying advertising alternatives but choose not to use higher-paying pop-up, pop-under and flyover ads – all in the belief that we could continue operating purely on my dime, a little ad revenue and reader donations.…

Pulpit of Doom Podcast 3-21-2012

March 22, 2013 at 6:56 pm by  

Hail MaryHere, Now – Last night’s podcast was one of a kind. Me and Athena got some wires crossed yesterday and needles to say, she wasn’t aware we were doing a Pulpit of Doom. I had already advertised that we were doing one, so I figured I would pull in one of the few people who sometimes hop on and co-host with me, but as luck would have it, no one was available.

So I threw a Hail Mary and asked our Facebook fans if anyone was interested in co-hosting – in 20 minutes. I didn’t think anyone would actually take me up on the offer, but one brave person did. With the chat room filling up, and only minutes to go, I thought I was going to have to podcast alone (which I loathe). But with five seconds before we went on the air, Lucy, a fan of the site for two years, joined in.

So last night marked the first ever podcast in which my co-host was someone I had never even spoken to before going live, aside from asking, “Is this Lucy?”

Admittedly, I was a bit nervous, as I had no idea if Lucy was a mouth breathing moron or someone just fucking around, but turns out we had a decent podcast that went off without a hitch – my 1000 uhs and ums notwithstanding.…

Pulpit of Doom Podcast For 2-14-2013

February 15, 2013 at 12:24 pm by  

Be Mine 4-everHere, Now – Last night was our first “official” Pulpit of Doom podcast in almost half a year. Overall, it felt like old times and we appreciate everyone who turned up on Valentine’s Day to participate. For the majority of the 90 minutes, we talk about this week’s top 10 stories while other listeners chatted away live in the Pulpit of Doom chatbox.

Aside from some discussion on the cringe-inducing phone sex between Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander, there were also many revelations. These included me having no issues screwing a horse if it meant I would be rewarded with a horesman baby, and that Jaded has no problems with toddler run gas stations and can get through a story involving penis by simply not saying the word “penis”.

There’s a bit of conversation that took place after we went off the air, but It’s just me and Jaded discussing a couple books we are currently reading and how we want to tackle future reviews of books and movies for the site.…

Jersey City, NJ – Jargget Washington, 29, was arrested Sunday night while reportedly being nude, belligerent, and sky-high on PCP.

He had reportedly attempted to pull a driver out of a car, but failed when the man fought back.  So much for that super-human strength PCP is supposed to give a dude.

Police were able to subdue Washington and transfer him to Jersey City Medical Center where he started acting up again, spitting at officers, chewing at his own wrists in an attempt to free himself, and devouring his medical ID bracelet.

He was eventually cleared for transfer to Hudson County Jail while still in his medical gown.  On the way, he dropped a deuce in the police cruiser, which is something cops really seem to relish.

And, as we all know, an evacuation of one’s bowels can really work up a voracious appetite.  Washington answered his body’s call for food by prompting him to eat his own finger right off his hand.  Yeah, he swallowed it too.  If you’ve had enough, you may now proceed to the comments section to submit your most inappropriate “dark meat” jokes.…

Here, Now – It’s been three years, but circumstances have us at a point in which I must beg for money start another fundraiser. I hate it, but I wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t necessary.

I have always tried to be transparent when it comes to DD and how haphazardly it is run. Those who know me personally, as well as those who have worked with me on the site, know that DD has been, and remains to be, a hobby of mine. It is not a source of income. Trust me when I say that had I wanted to start a site to make a living with, DD wouldn’t have been it. Running a crime news site like DD, in my experience, is the worst possible niche to get into if you are looking to make a living at it. Crime gets an audience, but it certainly does not pay.

If you do a Google search on “ads for news sites” you will see part of the problem. Basically, news sites have a hard time finding advertisers.…

Pulpit Of Doom Drunkcast Episode 9

May 14, 2012 at 10:52 am by  

Here, Now – Thanks to everyone who showed up to Saturday night’s  The Pulpit of Doom Drunkcast with myself and Athena. You can listen to it here. I thought it was one of our better ones, even when Athena got booted for a few moments and I was left floundering podcasting by myself — which I hate.

In this episode, Athena tossed down a seasonal cocktail while I downed a few bottles of Yuengling while gabbing about Hugh Howey’s WOOL books and why you should check them out — even if you don’t like science fiction, demonic pit bulls tossing women on railroad tracks, coach-inspired masturbation races with underage players, a hot-tempered teen who murdered a toddler, parental humiliation done terribly wrong, the worst case scenario for a first time hang-glider, kids getting rolled into security gates, and much, much more. In fact, we got into so many good discussions, we were unable to finish the Top 10 list before time ran out.

Thanks again to Athena for showing up, and to all of you who continue to support us and chatted during the show.…

The Pulpit of Doom Episode 24

April 19, 2012 at 7:54 am by  

Here, Now – Thanks to all of you who showed up to last night’s last minute episode of The Pulpit of Doom with myself, Athena and PetePuma. You can listen to it here.

After a bit of a hiatus, the stars aligned and we were all able to record last night and figured we’d take advantage of it. We only scheduled for an hour, but could have easily gone for another as evident by our 45-minute discussion after we went offline.

In this episode, after 15 minutes explaining where we have been and why Jaded has been absent, we discussed the horrors of being pulled into a wood-chipper, laws created in the names of other people and the Peckerwoods who are convicted under them, whether taxpayers should be able to dictate if welfare recipients can buy cigarettes and lottery tickets, being killed by swans, meat pies stuffed with human flesh, and much more.

Afterwards, PetePuma signs off after his voice finally gives up the ghost so me and Athena talked for almost an hour about the current music scene and the horror movie genre.…

The Pulpit of Doom Drunkcast Numero Six

March 18, 2012 at 12:15 pm by  

Here, Now – Thanks to everyone who showed up to the 6th episode of the Pulpit of Doom Drunkcast to do some drinking with Morbid, Jaded, Athena and later in the show, Kniption — who was drunk long before he called in. You can listen to the episode here. For those unaware, the drunkcasts are like our Wednesday show, just infused with copious amounts of alcohol.

Gonna have to admit, I think this may have been the drunkest of shows and not your average crime related podcast. The show began showing signs of smoke with my very first sentence, a sentence that contained “um” not 30 seconds after I bet Jaded I would not use “um” in the entire podcast. Flames were spotted right around the time Jaded mentioned Captain Cunt, and reports of a fiery object falling from the sky started coming in right around the time Kniption called in and we began talking about eating your dead spouse.

Somewhere along the way, we discuss murder suicide in front of the kiddos, drunken Amish drag racing, Ouija boards and the people who believe the debil can make you do it, the deadly nature of a Jack in the Box breakfast sandwich, Kony 2012 and how everyone thinks they’re an activist with the click of a mouse, slipping into something a bit more comfortable inside your neighbor’s house, the horrible death of Tori Stafford, how our site may have scared some mothers into shoving their children back up their vaginas for protection, and much, much more.…
