Getting Our Kicks in Kingman, AZ

As the Duck continuously endeavors to provide interesting content for my semi-newly restored Youtube channel, one subject for which I am on a constant lookout is intriguing places.  It was thanks to the delightful videos of Youtuber Justin Scarred that Mother Duck and I have gained an interest in visiting historic Route 66.

Bonus Post: Unboxing Some Sweet Undertale Goodness

For whatever reason, unboxing seems to be a rather popular thing on Youtube.  And whenever something’s popular, I usually arrive on the scene…several years too late….  Sometimes decades, come to think of it….  Nonetheless, that’s never stopped me before!

To give you a little context, whenever I find a new game that I really enjoy, I always love getting some cool stuff for it.  So when I recently became a huge fan of Undertale, I was rather disappointed by the fact that I wasn’t able to find any cool merchandise for it online.  At least, not on Amazon anyway, my main stop for gaming goodness.  One way or another, however, I finally managed to stumble upon this company called Fangamer, which just so happens to be the one and only website where you can get official Undertale merchandise!  This place already meets all my standards!

100 Theme Blog Challenge No. 18: Rainbow

Slowly, like the ever-plodding march of time, the Duck has been working through this here 100 theme challenge.  After seven years of blogging, I have only reached #18.  The topic: rainbow.  When I think about rainbows, I think of colors.  I think of the story of Noah’s Ark and how the rainbow was God’s promise not to ever flood the Earth again.  I also get to thinking about the people who believe dinosaurs were on the ark.  Whether or not this is true, I know not, but if so, I bet it was super cool and scary all at once.

The topic of rainbow also brings to mind what often comes before a rainbow, a storm.  It seems as if a lot of people don’t like rainstorms and prefer sunny skies over grey and cloudy ones.  Perhaps it’s my fondness for moisture thanks to my duckyness, but I am completely the opposite.  I love the rain.  I love storm clouds.  I love cooler weather over being hot.  If I planned a trip to Disneyland and found that it would rain the entire time, I would be thrilled.  Better yet, the park would probably not be too crowded because people wouldn’t want to be out in the rain.

It’s About Time I Played: Mega Man X

The Duck is a frequent latecomer to video games.  Nevertheless, I have been trying with all due diligence to right this wrong by catching up on a lot of the games I had been missing out on, namely those on the SNES and PS1, with a bit of Sly Cooper thrown in.  Future plans include the Crash Bandicoot trilogy on the PS4, along with hoping that the same will happen with the original Spyro games so I can find a more convenient way to play them, as well.  The most recent series I have tried…Mega Man.

Halloween 2017: Grim Grinning Ghosts

I hope you’re all having a holly jolly Halloween, everyone!  To make it even better, I’ve prepared a silly video for you all that combines a lot of my mediocre skills into one place, including my ability to sing okay-ly, Photoshop stuff onto other stuff okay-ly, make costumes okay-ly, and most importantly of all, click the Upload button on Youtube as okay-ly as the next duck.  You should see the finesse in which I clicked that button.  It would bring tears to your eyes!

Ahem, for today’s spooky treat, you can find my own rendition of Grim Grinning Ghosts from Disney’s Haunted Mansion, my favorite attraction ever.  I’m even pretty good at riding it.  It takes skill because of how fast the Doom Buggies are….  Without further ado, Grim Grinning Ghosts!

Memories from Ducklinghood: Trick or Treating

With Halloween edging ever closer, the Duck was struck with some memories of Halloweens past, back when I was a duckling and trick or treating was still a valid option for the spookiest night of the year.  There were several friends I would usually accompany while trick or treating, and since I lived in a larger neighborhood than them, they would usually visit me for the festivities.  I recall my friends always sporting better costumes than me, for all I was able to obtain were the silly kinds of things Wal-Mart usually had in stock.  I remember dressing as a bee and a ladybug during two of my years of Halloween-ing.  Mother Duck sometimes reminds me that, when I was super young, I dressed as a pirate.  So it would seem that my costumes got worse the older I got.  (If only I was adept at cosplay back then, such Halloween woes…Hallo-woes…could have been avoided.)

Bonus Post: Spooky Slender Man Stories

Howdy doo, everyone!  With the approach of Halloween, I thought it would be fun to record a rather special video where I narrate my three short Slender Man horror stories, Trees, Imaginary, and Bunnies (the first one is a poem!).  So if you’re in the mood for something spooky, please give a listen to the video below.  As a side note: you don’t need to be familiar with Slender Man in order to appreciate these spooky stories.  Enjoy!

A Minor Trek into Fear with Spooky Tales and Haunted Houses

For October, I wanted to think up some spooky topics to share with you all.  And yet, and this is rather fortunate, not that many spooky things have happened in my life, meaning I had to think hard.  And what I came up with were a few semi-spook-related tales that took place during the Duck’s ducklinghood.  We’re verging on spook here, even if we’re not totally crossing the line.

To start off, I have never been good at telling scary stories.  In recent years, I was able to write a few decently creepy Slender Man stories, but without some pretty good inspiration (and believe me, Slender Man is great inspiration for horror), I am just not well-equipped at striking fear into the hearts of my listeners.  I remember one day many years back, I had a rare sleepover at my friend’s house.  As night fell, we decided it would be a great time to try and tell some scary stories.

Killer Trees and Unexpected Guests: Even More Spooky Duck Dreams

The night of October 1, 2017, was home to a marathon of creepy dreams that I wanted to record before I forgot.  It seems my sleeping mind is well-aware of the impending arrival of Halloween, so, as far as spooky dreams go, the timing couldn’t have been better.  As usual, many of the details have become lost to me, so these dreams may not sound as creepy as they actually were.  Nevertheless, believe me when I say that these dreams were quite haunting indeed before the welcome arrival of morning put an end to my unpleasant adventures.

In my first dream, I was in the woods, accompanied by a girl I believe was supposed to be my sister.  While many creepy stories take place in the woods, this one does not involve the mysterious creatures that typically reside in the darkest reaches of the forest, but rather, the trees themselves.  I remember coming upon a very large tree.  It wasn’t exactly tall, but it had a very thick trunk with one of those holes in its side that so commonly house owls or glowing eyes.  Within moments of arriving at this particular tree, the hole in its side transformed into a large gaping mouth.
