This page pretty much describes the site, why it is here and what all we offer. It is chock full of links and other information that you I hope some of you will find interesting or helpful and hopefully keep you from asking us stupid questions.
While we have a revolving door of help, as we seem to have a habit of pissing people off, here is the current staff. Feel free to contact them via email or on the site if you need to. Not one of these people get paid a dime, and suffer through the absolutely thankless job of running a site when they can spare the time – simply because they love the site.
The Dreamin’ Demon was started over eight years ago. It was initially just a forum for members to have religious and political arguments. The main page was an attempt at being an entertainment news resource specifically geared towards movies and weird news. Check the Wayback Machine for some hilarious pictures of the site. Through many ups and downs, site reboots and data loss, one particular portion of the site remained the most active. Morbid’s personal favorite section called Reality Bites. This portion of the site was nothing more than an uncensored blog on criminal activity and nothing else – allowing authors and commentors to state pretty much whatever they felt like.
While there is no one goal in regards to what we are doing, there is a purpose. The Dreamin’ Demon is here to try and provide uncensored commentary in regards to crime related news as well as some good crimentertainment in film, books and television. Politically correct? Tact? Morals? You wont find much of that here. We are not experts, nor do we pretend to be. We are simply just like you. Parents, Friends and Family who are (somewhat) functioning members of society who read about these stories and want to spread the word while laughing at some of the idiots.
- People are not INNOCENT until proven guilty. This is a legal philosophy designed to place the burden of proof entirely in the hands of the prosecution. It means something in a court of law, but it doesn’t mean jack on our website.
- Our courts treat everyone with the respect afforded an innocent person. We don’t have to. It isn’t libel or slander to talk shit about an arrest or news report.
- We don’t give as much of a shit about a crime three years after it was committed.
- Our site makes fun of people for being suspected of tragic and comedic crimes in the same way COPS entertains us with arrests.
The Dreamin’ Demon is a lot more than just the front page. There are a lot of things going on with this site that some of you may not be aware of. This is just a quick rundown of other things you can explore when you get tired of reading about the latest baby raper, or you need any excuse to have your employer wish you did not have internet access.
The second, and sometimes first, biggest aspect of the site is or forum, the Den of Sin. Unlike the front page, which can be drive-by in nature, the forums are for more intimate discussions and range from true crime, to movies, to politics, and even some choice hate mail. There is also a Chatbox that is usually always active. This forum does require a separate registration and login as it operates independently from the main page. Most of our news that you see on the front page comes from user-submitted stories in the Reality Bites section of the forum. So if you cannot get enough bad news, we have more than enough there on a daily basis.
Sometimes, we feel like having our voices heard over having our words read. So for better or for worse, we do produce a podcast The Pulpit of Doom on BlogTalkRadio two times a week. On Wednesday nights we discuss the top stories currently featured on the site and on Saturdays we do it again — but while drinking lots of alcohol.
We also do provide a few feeds via FeedBurner. While I know refreshing the front page can be a orgasmic blast of epic proportions, these feeds are guaranteed to keep you up to date with all the latest articles.
lol! It still exists, but like everyone else who had an active MySpace account, that’s all it does.
We have a Facebook Fan Page with over 7000 members and growing every day. This our home away from home and where you can find Morbid hanging out when not posting stories. Fans of the site also comment on DD articles here and even post some of their own.
We are also on Twitter. I am only on there to see how many followers I can get, because everyone knows that the more followers you have the better you are! And the bigger your dick is! It’s mostly use to spam our articles, but we occasionally interact with others. So if you have a Twitter account, Follow Us and be one of the cool kids!
You think the discussions here get strange? You should see the comments left at our YouTube Channel. So if you are ever bored, or just goofing around on YouTube, be sure to stop by our channel. We no longer use this channel in fear of copyright violations, but it is still interesting to go back and watch some of the older news videos.
We have seen some of the comments about our site, good and bad, and we have seen the talk about our style and our choice of imagery. If you get it, good, take your shoes off and have a seat on the couch (the clean one). If not, you probably aren’t welcome anyway. There are many true crime sites out there and we do not pretend to be the best of the bunch. Lots of great sites out there are run by good people who invest a lot of time into what they do. Pick your poison – I think most true crime sites have similar goals, even if they find different ways of reaching them. Some have more class, and others have more style. We go with the latter method.
While it can be a bit depressing to read the actions of some of these people and the fate of their victims on a daily basis, you need to be aware of these scenarios so that maybe you can prevent yourself, or others, from being featured here. But overall, the world is a great place. Our site is not a true picture of the US population as a whole. It is merely a small, stinky slice of it. Unlike what others would like you to believe, we are not going to hell in a handbasket. Lastly, get involved! Even if it’s forming a Community Watch, or keeping an eye on your neighbor, or volunteering your time to help victims, or writing your local representatives about stiffer penalties for people who commit some of the heinous crimes we feature.
Anything is better than doing nothing at all. If we have gotten just ONE person to act, then this entire site has been worth it.
