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 – Thanks to everyone who turned up last night to chat with other members during our Pulpit of Doom podcast. For those who missed it, or plan on listening to it later, we spent 90 minutes talking about the top 10 stories currently circulating on dreamindemoncom.
This also led to other discussions, including Jaded’s mental issues — like her fear of wearing ragged underwear in changing rooms in case she is being watched through a two-way mirror, and her obsession with plugging every hole she finds in her house, including the electrical outlets.
When Jaded was able to contain her giggling, we also discussed some of the Jodi Arias trial, the different techniques a man can spray semen on unsuspecting Walmart shoppers (including the “thumb cap” maneuver) and the juvenile delinquent that is currently residing in my house.
After we went off the air, we discussed music for no real reason – but I did learn Jaded’s boner for Chino Moreno is still going strong after all these years.
Next week we hope to take some callers, so get some questions ready and call in.…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 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 – Once again, thanks to all of you who stopped by and listened and participated in the 20th episode of the Pulpit of Doom podcast, even with the short notice. You can listen to it by clicking here.
Remember you can follow the podcast so that you are alerted, via email, whenever we are about to do a show. We normally do them every Wednesday 9:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. EST. On Saturdays we occasionally do the drunk version from 9:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. EST.
Since we skipped the last drunkcast we had a weeks worth of stories to talk about including the couple who used Craigslist to find a red rocket, the teen who saw her dad dressed as Batman while holding a sex toy… on television, the teen who caught his friend having sex with his cow, the little girl who was ran to death, the schoolyard fight that resulted in a dead 11-year-old and the animal rights activist who hired a hit man to kill a fur-wearer… and much, much more.…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 - 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 stopped by and chilled out with us last night on the 16th episode of the Pulpit of Doom that you can listen to by clicking the link or using the embedded player that sometimes works. We haven’t had that many people listening live in the chatroom in a long time.
For those of you who weren’t there, Jaded and myself discussed a handful of popular stories circulating on the site this week, including the lollipop game, pageant mom, broken penis, and the mom caught on video force feeding her kid.
We also learned that Jaded really cannot say the word penis without giggling like a schoolgirl and may have eaten a big wad of semen. Or flan. I’m still not sure which to be honest.
For those of you who were there, thanks for participating in the chat and asking questions during the podcast. Some of the questions answered where how the site got started, where the name came from, what our purpose was at the time and what our purpose is now .…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
On Tuesday 24th January 2012, the US Senate will vote on the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). It was recently announced that Obama has come out against SOPA and that the bill is, in all likelihood, dead. That may or may not be the case, but the same cannot be said about PIPA.
I’m all for companies trying to combat piracy and protecting their property, but these proposed laws are not the answer. They are too vague, too broad and too ripe for abuse.
There are many companies against SOPA and PIPA, such as Google, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, and tomorrow we will join them by bringing our site down for 12 hours (8:00 am est – 8:00 pm est). We may not be the heavy-hitters those guys are, or as influential, but laws like this could affect us, and in turn, affect you.
Our forums will be open during this time, and at 8:30 est, we will be conducting our 14th episode of The Pulpit of Doom so feel free to stop by and listen or participate in our discussions of the site’s top stories as well as discussing two films; MEGAN IS MISSING and TRUST.…Continue Reading
We had a couple weeks of technical difficulties so last night’s impromptu broadcast was a last minute deal and to be honest, I didn’t think we would even make it an hour. But surprise, surprise, we made it the entire 90 minutes.
In between talking about Casey Anthony’s ridiculous defense, discussions of the last couple week’s most popular stories on the site, and Hugh Howey’s 16th book, we also learned that Jaded’s virginity was worth a six pack of beer and I admitted to putting my penis in my own butthole.
I’m sure we went into many different tangents over the course of the show, including Jaded making fun of my gardening dreams, but we had a blast and we’ll be back next week for more of the same. Be sure to check out our BlogTalkRadio page for archived episodes.
Thanks to everyone who turned out for last night’s podcast, a podcast full of feces and penis. I was a bit worried as we pulled it together hours before the show as Imp was sick and I was not sure if Jaded would make it or not.
Luckily, Jaded took time out of her busy schedule busting skulls and we were finally able to get a good friend of mine, the infamous Michelle McKee, to join us and have her podcast cherry popped.
Even Kniption called in to talk about a couple of his stories before he got disconnected. So check it out and listen as we talk about some of the site’s most popular stories over the last week and why we are better than everyone else.
A big thanks to all the regulars (and guests) who showed up in the chat as well as Malq and Shadow for calling in to the show. If you listened to the live version last night, we did keep going for another 20 minutes as me, Michelle and Jaded discussed huffing paint, Michelle’s other personalities, and beer bottle enemas.…Continue Reading
As for the actual podcast, Imp and myself (Jaded was out getting drunk and eating too much BBQ shrimp) discussed media bias (again) in regards to missing persons cases that was once again made apparant with the news of Phylicia Barnes’ body being found. We also discuss the latest depressing news on Rowan Ford as well as the beatdown of a transgender woman at the hands of two teen girls in a Baltimore McDonald’s.
We even get some surprise mail from Jaded’s biggest fan, Jane Importante. If you listened in on the podcast last night, you heard the message. But if you check out some of the stuff me and Imp talked about after we went off the air, you can also hear Jane’s response that can only be summed up with o_O.
This episode has more foul language than usual as we do talk about the guy who had sex with a bus seat which lead to all the other stories regarding guys and what they will stick their dicks in…like dogs, patio furniture and dead deer.…Continue Reading
Here, Now — For those of you who missed it, our re-entry into the lovely world of podcasting was last night after a three year hiatus. You can check out the episode, and any other podcasts we do, by visiting our Pulpit of DOOM page over at Blog Talk Radio. We haven’t settled on what day of the week we will podcast, or what time, but Sunday worked well.
This episode was just us kicking the tires a bit and followed no real format aside from Impqueen and myself giving you all the info you may (or may not) have wanted to know about the Hailey Dunn case. Plus you get a bit of background information regarding the site and why I have an account on a bestiality forum.
It’s not family friendly, but aside from a bit of Imp’s salty language, it shouldn’t offend too much. And yes, I know, I don’t sound anything like you imagined. I was born and raised in the Dirty South and proud of it…and no, I was not stoned at the time of this recording.…Continue Reading
As most have noticed, or read on our Facebook Page, we ran into an issue with Disqus for a second time that brought our site down. So we decided maybe we wont use Disqus any longer as we’d rather have a site up and running with the default WordPress comment system than a dead site with Disqus. I know, I know, a lot of people use Disqus with no issues but we are not one of them. This also had us questioning if we really wanted to have a 3rd party handling our comments so we decided until we figure out exactly what we want to do, we would play it safe and disable Disqus. That’s when everything went to dog shit. For whatever reason, the template I had designed over the years, puked its guts up on that change and it took hours to figure out why. As I would resolve one issue, another would rear its stupid head. Slowly but surely I am getting everything working again, the only remaining issue being the comment page itself.…Continue Reading
Yeah, yeah, the site has been running like crap the last couple of days. We’re working with our hosting service (the good guys and gals over at Nexcess.net who put up with my constant whining) to get things resolved. For some reason, after Google cock-blocked you guys from our awesome lady parts last week, our traffic increased to the point where our current configuration barfs all over it. Hopefully we will get all of this resolved shortly, so no need sending us emails about the site not loading…we know…trust me, we know. In the meantime we will still try to get stories up when the site is co-operating. The forums seem to be working well enough at the moment but the chatbox had to be shut down temporarily. I’ll be updating the Facebook page regularly with status updates, but for now I am through messing around with the site and I think I’m calling it a night. …Continue Reading
By now I am sure Google has informed you that you should stay away from Dreamin’ Demon as we’ll kick in your door, rape your animals and eat your children. We are working on getting this resolved. The issue stems from how we run ads. Some pay for ad space, but we also fill slots using a self-hosted openx ad server. Everything has been fine until the day I decided to check out Clicksor and Bidvertiser. These are ad serving alternatives for sites like ours, sites whose content is deemed “inappropriate” by Google Adsense. Immediately after activating these two, Clicksor started throwing up those dreaded Malware type messages. So we discontinued them quickly after activating them. Bidvertisor faired better, with the message only showing up rarely due to certain ads they allowed, but usually resolved itself fairly quickly (we ran into similar issues with AdBrite). But it seems a combo of that and possibly the exploit in the openx software lead to Google deeming us Satan incarnate. This is not rare I found, and a lot of people have fell victim to this.…Continue Reading
Another Labor Day is here and because most see this day as the symbolic end of summer and the beginning of football season, completely ignorant of its origins, we’ll give you the Cliff Notes version of its origins. Labor Day was initially just a way to celebrate the working man and all the shit they do. First celebrated around 1882 in New York, but by 1897 a handful of states had passed some type of Labor Day legislation. That was until 1894 when the workers of Pullman Palace Car Company went on strike to protest the lowering of their wages. Soon, 125,000 workers within the American Railway Union followed and walked off their jobs, followed by around 250,000 railroad men across the country in a show of support. President Grover Cleveland and his co-horts were not happy about a large chunk of the railroad being completely shut down so Cleveland decided to end the strike by sending U.S. marshals and 12,000 U.S. troops to Chicago. Of course this ended up one big clusterfuck.…Continue Reading
Another Fourth of July is upon us and while people will use this holiday to enjoy the beer, food, family gatherings and fireworks more than they will be celebrating the day we officially gave the Kingdom of Great Britain the big Fuck You with the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, I do hope you all have a safe one. Since most of you are probably out enjoying your families and the festivities, I figured I would put together a quick post on a few stories (two from Missouri) that have been circulating over the last couple days that deal with fireworks and some of the stupid people out there who ignored the warning labels, causing injuries to themselves or others. Let the following people serve as a warning to everyone that it’s not normally a good idea to combine fireworks in your kitchen or bedroom, and never, ever put your face close to an explosive while investigating why it did not go off as planned.…Continue Reading
