Here, 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.…Continue Reading
Here, 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. …Continue Reading
Here, 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.…Continue Reading
Here, 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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
Here, 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.…Continue Reading
Here, 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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
Here, Now – Jaded couldn’t make it to our 22nd edition of The Pulpit of Doom because of a sale on Night Train, but myself, Athena and Impqueen did the crime thing for an hour and we appreciate all of you who showed up.
You can check out the podcast here, and listen as we discuss Hawaiian monkey finger mysteries, mothers performing exorcisms by scissors, the hunt for Jessica Funk-Haslam and Anne Kasprzak’s killer or killers, creepy-ass divorce lawyers going that extra mile, a man playing truth or child molestation, parents inflicting public shaming on their children, the tragic results of poor gun ownership and much, much more.
After the show went off the air, Athena excused herself — sort of — while me and Impqueen talked about her new book and other odds and ends. Unfortunately, I totally forgot to save the chat log. Damn Jaded.
Thanks again, everyone. More than likely we will see you Saturday night for our 6th Pulpit of Doom Drunkcast.…Continue Reading
Here, Now – Thanks to everyone who showed up to the 5th episode of the Pulpit of Doom Drunkcast to do some drinking with me, Jaded and Athena. You can listen to it here. The drunkcasts are like our Wednesday show, just infused with copious amounts of alcohol.
Because of the site issues we had yesterday stemming from my forgetting to re-register the dreamindemon.com domain name, I was drinking long before the show started and, man, does it show.
I think the slurring starts at the halfway mark as we discussed getting kicked off planes because of a toddler’s tantrum, teenagers caught on camera having sex with willing pit bulls, friends who will help you move a body, two women who turned a man into soup, the little-known dangers of Jewish blowjobs, creepy funeral home employees looking for love in all the wrong places and much, much more.
By the end of the show I’m pretty sure we were talking about large dildos. After we went off the air, we had a drunken conversation about God knows what — I refuse to go back and listen.…Continue Reading
For those of you who didn’t make it, myself, Jaded and Athena discussed the Top 10 stories circulating on D’D this week. These stories included the mom accused of pimping her daughter out to homeless men, the teen who died while texting and driving (and the knee-jerk law proposed afterwards), a disgruntled Spanish teacher who shot their boss to death with an AK-47, being charged with exposure for showing off a dildo, DiY nose removal and a woman who let the kid she hated drown in a bathtub.
We also reminisced about the days before the Internet, having to use payphones and our desire to make love to Google. After the show went of the air, we messed around with some intros while bullshitting about Big Bang Theory, Santa Claus (in which Athena was smoted by karma) as well as Rawhide and Bloody Bones.…Continue Reading
Here, Now – Thanks to everyone who stopped by last night to listen to our 19th edition of The Pulpit of Doom and thanks to Jaded and Dai Green from Horrornews.net for helping me out. You can listen to it by clicking here.
I thought it was a pretty good show even though we all stayed sober throughout. Clocking in at over 90 minutes, we barely had time to cover all the stories on the site from the last few days, including police beating a car with a tree, honor beatings with a shoe, an animal rights group losing an expensive piece of equipment to some hunters (and our first article featured on Fark.com), naked women beating naked toddlers, a starved, imprisoned teen forced to eat out of the trash, a prostitute who lost some limbs to a pit bull, the dangers of not monitoring your teen’s online activity, couch surfing mayhem, an exploding breast implant, racist white girls on video, and a superintendent busted molesting a dog.…Continue Reading
Here, Now – Thanks to everyone who stopped by last night to listen to our 18th edition of The Pulpit of Doom. You can listen to it by clicking here. Jaded’s court-ordered shock therapy treatments conflicted with last night’s show, so she was unable to make it.
Thankfully I was able to talk Dai Green, managing editor at HorrorNews.net, into coming on and bullshitting with us about the latest sick and twisted stories featured on the site.
I don’t know about y’all, but I had a pretty good time — although an hour is way too short… and I did use the word “gander.” We normally go 90 minutes, but wasn’t sure if I was even going to do the show until 10 minutes before we went on the air.
Remember, if you follow our BlogTalkRadio Page you will be reminded whenever a show is coming up. This should help some of you who forget what time we normally start, or the timezone we are in. Hint: Eastern.
As far as I know, we will be back on Saturday for a third drunkcast.…Continue Reading
Here, Now – I cannot believe I forgot to post a link to this today, but thanks to everyone who showed up to our second drunkcast. It was fun. You can listen to it at our BlogTalkRadio page.
For those of you who were lame, or had a life, our drunkcasts are pretty much the same as our Wednesday night Pulpit of Doom podcasts, but we make a point of drinking as much alcohol as we can handle during the show. In this case, I was drinking Old Fashioneds while Jaded nursed some vodka.
It’s only our second drunkcast, and so far nothing too embarrassing has happened (that I can remember) aside from Jaded’s made up words and insane giggling. Of course I maintained a constant air of dignity and restraint as we discussed stuff I cannot remember before discussing being butt-raped by Bigfoot.
Anyway, thanks again to all of you who showed up and chatted. We hope to have a guest next time… for some reason people seem reluctant to show up on such a classy show held in such high regard by the upper echelons of the podcasting community.…Continue Reading
Here, Now - Well that certainly was interesting. Thanks to everyone who turned up last night and decided to have a few drinks with myself and Jaded during our Pulpit of Doom Drunkcast. You can listen to it at the link, or try to use the embedded player.
We have only had a few drunkcasts before this one, all conducted years ago and long since forgotten. This one didn’t turn out to be the train wreck I was expecting, but I’ll wait for feedback\demand before we decide on doing another one.
For those of you who missed it, I was cleaning out my liquor cabinet — switching between rum and ginger ale while also finishing off some leftover Kahlua and Baileys leftover from a night of B-52′s. Jaded was doing things much more correctly, drinking Jack and Cokes… through a twisty straw.Continue Reading
Here, Now - Thanks to everyone who came out last night to listen to our 15th episode of The Pulpit of Doom.If the embedded player does not work for you, here is the direct link to the show.
It was an odd one as I forgot we were even doing it until 30 minutes before we went on air, mostly because we had to do the show a day for some slack reason that I cannot recall. Probably had something to do with Jaded.
We went over some of our popular stories for the week, including the woman who filmed herself molesting the 5-year-old she was babysitting, the group of kids who beat on another teen and posted the video to Youtube and the man accused of skinning and eating a cat.
Once again, people found out that I am from the South and sport an awesome accent and do not sound like Lurch. We also found that we should never let Jaded press any of the shiny Blog Talk Radio buttons as she cut the sound off between us and our live listeners for a few moments.…Continue Reading
