Did you notice anything new about The Shack? Like a theme different in a few ways?  And some new stuff all the way up at the top of the main page? And new sidebar widget thingies? And a whole lot of blank space where more widget thingies that will contain cool links and maybe a […]

You’ve probably noticed the posts here at The Shack haven’t exactly been plentiful lately. I have a couple good reasons and ask your indulgence for a short while to explain. First, I’ve spent a couple or three weeks re-evaluating what I want to write about after the election. Sure, I could go back to what […]

Have you ever read something that was the emotional or intellectual equivalent of a punch in the gut from a large and angry man named Knuckles? It doesn’t happen to me often, but when it does, I do my best to figure out exactly why what I read affected me so profoundly. Also, I like […]

Eight years ago, I had this little conversation with myself: ME: You know, I’ve been reading these blogs like Captain’s Quarters, Q and O, Instapundit, and Ace of Spades HQ for a little bit now. I’d like to try my hand at that. I bet I could get a few readers myself. OTHER ME: Really? […]

Call me crazy, but I’ve never seen the need to flock to the stores on Black Friday to catch a really good deal, not when I can sit in the comfort of my own home, eat delicious Thanksgiving leftovers, and plunder Amazon’s Black Friday deals for bargains. Seriously, what’s not to like about that? The […]

Guys, I’m exhausted. My obligations away from The Shack have become so numerous that I honestly don’t have enough hours in the day to do everything and still get a decent amount of sleep. I’ve been running as fast as I can for about a month now and I’m gassed. Obviously I can’t continue this […]

I really hadn’t planned on devoting half of Episode 104 to the debt ceiling debate, but then White House Spokesmouth Jay Carney went and gave a press conference so blatantly offensive that I couldn’t help but talk about it. Thankfully a friend came along and helped me understand what Carney was really trying to say […]
