The Rickety Old Shack

About The Shack

For over 20 years, The Rickety Old Shack has existed in one form or another. Originally started as web-based 'zine site in the late 90s, covering RTS games and professional wrestling, before transitioning to music and movies and the ever-helpful "misc" category. The site has experienced long stretches of inactivity from 2005 until this most recent re-launch in August, 2017. The purpose of this site is to house the personal writing of its owner, and features content covering a wide variety of subjects. The current focus is on the world of mixed martial arts, and music, although new content is always in the works.

Derek Hamilton

I have been a hobbyist writer, graphic and web designer for over 23 years. I have run and / or maintained a wide variety of websites, covering a number of different topics such as gaming, professional wrestling, music and other media, and various personal blogs. Rickety Old Shack Productions is a fake company name I came up with when I was in grade 9, and for whatever reason it has stuck with me ever since. I have Strong Opinions™ about a lot of things, which lead to the creation of this site. Thanks for taking the time to read my rambling missives.
