Duck Dreams: The Duck Escapes from Aliens

The Duck seems to have no shortage of weird dreams, the night of November 6, 2017 among them.  I wish my mind was so creatively inclined when it was awake, but alas, this is not to be.  While the order of events is rather unclear, I will do my best to ensure this makes about as much sense as a dream can.  Which is not at all.

I remember a large building that I think was a museum.  For whatever reason, I had brought my cat Elsa along and was going to leave her in this main room as I checked the place out.  Of course, I quickly realized that this was quite unsafe for my kitty, so I picked her up and took her with me.  The building was very large and sprawling indeed, and along the way, I ran into the Carpetbagger, one of my favorite Youtubers.  In the dream, we apparently knew each other, as we both talked like old friends.  Though the dream seems pretty calm at this point, I recall something more sinister working in the background.

The Duck’s Youtube Channel…Goes the Way of the Dodo

G’day, folks.  I have a short update for you all.  The Duck of Indeed’s Youtube channel…has recently become deceased.  Due to some harassing and inappropriate comments, I have decided to remove all of my Youtube videos, along with any corresponding blog posts, or any other blog posts that mention my personal life or give away my appearance.  The Internet can be a rather…odd place, as we all know, so perhaps it was unwise to reveal as much about myself as I did.  Other than that, this blog, and my gaming endeavors on Virtual Bastion, will continue as usual.  Onward and tally ho!

Tunnels in the Snow

It was many years ago, when the Duck was just the Duckling of Indeed, that I was, in fact, more akin to a mole than a humble waterfowl.  There was one winter in particular where the snow was absolutely ideal for a rather fun winter activity.  Rather than build snowducks, which seemed to be beyond my artistic abilities at the time, or engage in the act of sledding, a hobby that involves far more trudging up hills than actually zipping down icy slopes, the Duck enjoyed the wintery pastime of excavation.

The Duck’s Computer Has a Ghost

As you may recall, I recently joined Deviant Art.  My first order of business was following a few of my favorite artists (it’s called “watching”, actually, which sounds a little creepy), one of them being Zarla.  She’s drawn a huge amount of Undertale comics, including an entire series called Handplates, which was pretty darn awesome.  If there are any Undertale fans reading this right now, and you’re interested in Sans, Papyrus, and Gaster, then I’d definitely recommend checking it out.

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.

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.)

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.

Strange Noises in the Dark: A Duck Dream

Whether or not anyone reads these strange posts, I cannot say, but I enjoy writing them, so here we go.  I had a spooky dream the night of 7/15/17, and I think it came about due to hearing a spooky sound that night.  In this dream, I had two other siblings, an older sister and a younger sibling I don’t remember much about, as this person didn’t play a major role in the dream.  The older sister was, in fact, a friend I once had in real life.  I’m not going to say her name on the Internet, but since these posts are as much for my own records as your amusement, I will give myself a hint so that I remember in the future who this friend was.  She was the friend with the swimming pool.  There, memory secured.  Since this person is important in my dream, I’ll just call her Alice.  That’s not her name.  It’s just better than typing older sister all the time.

The Duck of Indeed Has Started a SpreadShirt Store!

Today is a very exciting day, everyone, a fact which should already be more than apparent based on this early Thursday blog post!  What, Thursday?  Has the Duck gone mad!  No, as a matter of fact.  I have simply decided to start a t-shirt shop on SpreadShirt!

I know my blog isn’t terribly big (though it has been around for seven years now), but SpreadShirt is totally free to use, so I thought it couldn’t hurt to upload some designs and see what happens.  I currently have six variations of the Duck of Indeed logo, and I plan to add more in the future.  What’s even better is that, in addition to my SpreadShop, you can also upload random, non-brand-related designs in the Marketplace, as well.  At this time, I have two special, Halloween-related designs ready to be released in October, one for my Duck of Indeed shop and one for the Marketplace.  They’re cool.  I’ll show you guys once they’re available.  But I think they’re cool.
