-> ''Itís important to know when your surroundings arenít bringing out the best in you. This is true in every facet of life. Often, there isnít much you can do about it. With this, I can. The things that were stopping me were so bogus and pointless. If my Internet desires run no further than running a goofy site that people have fun with, I could be doing that so much more effectively. Hopefully, now I will!''\\

-->-- [[http://dinosaurdracula.com/blog/dinodracbegins/ The site's first post]]

''[[http://dinosaurdracula.com Dinosaur Dracula]]'' is a website created by Matt Carracappas, who became well-known for his former site ''X-Entertainment''. This site is basically a sequel to that one. (In real life he's a promo editor for Viacom Media Networks, including Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} and the movie net Epix.)

Like X-Entertainment, the site mostly revolves around nostalgia - toys, games, commercials, food, etc, all written with an eye for the small things and a healthy dose of humor and insanity.
!!This site contains examples of:
* AuthorAppeal: It's obvious that Matt likes ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles''. Additionally, he has a fondness for holidays, particularly Halloween and Christmas.
* ClusterFBomb
* DemBones: [[http://dinosaurdracula.com/blog/carlo-rules Carlo,]] though he has a zombie head.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: According to [[http://dinosaurdracula.com/blog/mars-halloween-candy-pails/ this post]], Matt hates Milky Ways.
* ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime: Matt says this about [[http://dinosaurdracula.com/blog/dinodracbegins/ a video made for the site's launch.]]
* TheLeader: Matt considers [[http://dinosaurdracula.com/blog/mars-halloween-candy-pails/ the pumpkin Milky Way bucket]] to be the leader, because of his (supposed) muscles and assuredness (making him a Type 3).
* LogoJoke: The logo dresses up for Halloween, Christmas, Summer, etc.
* {{Mascot}}: Quite a few, some of which are carried over from X-E. There's Dino Drac himself, obviously. Carried over from X-E are Harley (a mischievous, gremlin like creature), and Shrunken Apple Head, whose origins are explained in [[http://x-entertainment.com/articles/0837/ this old X-E article]]. Also in the mix is ''[[http://mummyshark.com/ Mummy Shark]]'', the site's companion Tumblr; he often shows up in the holiday banners as well.
* ManChild: Matt, in the most awesome way possible.
* MrImagination: Not many people can take [[http://dinosaurdracula.com/blog/marshmallows-from-outer-space marshmallows]] and make them into a science-fiction story about oppression.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: A hallmark of Matt's writing.
* NostalgiaFilter: A key point in the site's content, for instance, the recurring series of ''[[http://dinosaurdracula.com/blog/snacks-i-want-back-5/ Six Snacks I Want Back]]'' , which are mainly concerned with departed snack foods, some of which were criminally unhealthy (like the infamous Oreo Big Stuf, alleged to be the size of a ''hubcap'').
