I’m a closet Yahtzee addict

Hello, my name is the Irredeemable Shag and I’m a closet Yahtzee addict.  That’s step one, right? I can’t speak authoritatively on this, but I don’t believe many people my age play Yahtzee.  I think there is a perception that it’s an old person’s game.  Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s always been my belief.  According to […]


Action Figure Woes

I’ve been trying to get my hands on two action figures lately. They came out a few months ago from Mattel in their line of DC Universe Classics (Wave 2).  This is the brand of figures that are now carried in stores like Target.  The action figure scuplts are surprisingly good for distribution in regular stores. Personally, […]


Dr Who Magazine *** “Turn Left” SPOILERS ***

The following includes SPOILERS for the Doctor Who season 4 episode 11, “Turn Left”. … … … Doctor Who Magazine (DWM) is an awesome monthly publication.  If you are a who fan, it’s definitely worth buying this magazine.  Issue #397 hit the stands after the airing of “Turn Left”, but before the airing of “The Stolen Earth”.  So this […]


Podcast Appearances

Just a heads-up… I appeared in a couple recent episodes of The Unique Geek podcast. The Unique Geek Issue #70 features the usual gang as we discuss the latest mediocre offerings from Lucas as well as the lackluster summer movie season.  Really we are just a bunch of grumpy guys with nothing better to do. The Unique […]


Novels I’ve Been Reading

A few weeks back I wrote a blog post on a book I was reading, “Indiana Jones and the Seven Veils”.  It was an older book that was published back in 1991, but I read it to tide me over until I got around to seeing “Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull”.  Well, I finished this book and […]


“Chuck” Comic Book and Hellboy Commercials!

Other than the Doctor Who dynasty of shows, I don’t watch much television.  However, there is one new show that I have totally fallen for in the past year… “Chuck” on NBC.  The show is about a computer geek who is catapulted into a new career as the government’s most vital secret. With the government’s […]


A Very Happy Fourth of July

I don’t know about you, but I had a fantastic Fourth of July!  It was a very family-oriented holiday this year.  It felt like a day drafted by Normal Rockwell.  We started the day by sleeping in a bit (well, the kids let us sleep until 8:30am), swam/played in pool with the kids, grilled hamburgers […]


Indiana Jones Adventures… in stores now!

A while back, I wrote a blog post about the upcoming Indiana Jones comic digest.  Well… it came out this past Wednesday.  Now go buy it!


I liked “Hancock”

While the reviews have been somewhat mixed, I personally enjoyed the new movie “Hancock“.  I felt the movie delivered on what was promised in the trailers (a down-and-out superhero mends his ways to become a hero).  There were fun displays of superpowers, such as the way Hancock does super-jumps and his landings.  They also did an […]


Aquaman TV Show

For all you “Aquaman” haters out there, a special request from me…  Please resist your natural instinct to simply skip reading this post.  The TV show was surprisingly good.  After reading this post, who knows… you might find yourself willing to give it a try.  C’mon, live a little! Until the other day, I had never seen […]
