Kid Who: Doctor’s Daughter

Here is another installment of KID WHO!  “Kid Who” features reviews of Doctor Who episodes from the perspective of a child.  These short audio interviews are between myself and my eight-year old step-son.  Please bear with us as we do these segments.  He’s still getting used to being recorded, and I’m still trying to figure out the […]


Barack Obama – Geek or not geek

I don’t claim to know a lot about politics.  However, I did run across some geek-related Barack Obama political items lately.  I thought they were funny enough to post here.  Funny stuff, regardless of which candidate you like.   Look.. On the ballot.. It’s a Democrat.. It’s a Senator.. It’s Super-Obama!   Obama versus Clinton […]

Indiana Jones and the Paper Chase

I just started reading “Indiana Jones and the Seven Veils“, a novel by Rob MacGregor.  Given my current work schedule and chasing around after my kids, I haven’t had a chance to see “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” yet.  I’ve heard a lot of negative things about the new movie, so I […]

Raiders of the Lost Ark – Movie Night

We decided to have a family movie night last Saturday.  After being exposed to all the hype surrounding Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, my eight-year old step-son wanted to watch some of the original Indiana Jones films.  He’d never seen them before, so we started with “Raiders of the Lost Ark”.  Interestingly enough, I was the exact […]

Shag’s Comicatorium (a.k.a. Shag’s Sanctum Sanctorum)

I love me some JLA & JSA.  In fact, I’ve been building a DC Direct action figure collection of these two teams for years.  After seeing my buddy Michael Bailey (Views from the Longbox & Fortress of Baileytude) post some pics of his figures, I thought I would take you on a tour of some of […]
