The Duck Dreams of Abandoned Mansions

The night of 10/21/19, I had another one of my more interesting dreams.  And if you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, then you know what that means.  I’m going to share this dream with you, my dear readers, because I’m weird, and that’s what I do.  As is often the case, the details have become rather fuzzy, but I’ll try to recount this odd dream as well as I can.

The Duck Dreams of Things Lurking in the Shadows

The night of 8/25/19, I had a rather creepy dream that I wanted to write down before I forgot.  It has often been my intention to write a short story based off of some of my more interesting dreams, but as is often the case with a good number of my little side projects, it never quite happens.  Nevertheless, the least I can do is share it with all of you, my dear readers.

The Duck Dreams of SCP-173

The night of 4/16/19, the Duck had a spooky dream courtesy of a PC game called SCP: Containment Breach.  If you’re not familiar, the SCP Foundation is a fictional group that basically collects and studies anomalous creatures and objects.  Kind of like the TV series, Warehouse 13.  But scarier.  This particular dream featured SCP-173, a statue that moves at incredible speeds as long as you aren’t looking at it.  (If you’re thinking that they stole the idea from Dr. Who’s Weeping Angels, well, SCP-173 was actually created first, so…) Continue reading The Duck Dreams of SCP-173

Dream Time: Higgledies to the Rescue?

The night of 2/16/19, the Duck had a rather stressful dream indeed.  It began where I was in my garage, but the door that leads outside led, rather, to another room.  A guy was in this room and was trying to break into the house via this door, and he seemed largely unaffected by the door’s lock.  Though I would lock the door to bar him entrance, I would then watch in horror as the lock would slowly turn.  Eventually, I had to start placing furniture against it to keep the door secured.  Even though this finally worked, the man was clearly determined, as he merely decided to sleep in this room as he awaited his chance to break inside the house.

Spoopy Music: Mad Monster Mansion

The Duck has recorded another song on the piano, this time a tune quite befitting this most spooky of holidays, the church music from Banjo-Kazooie’s Mad Monster Mansion!  Though I am uncertain what the monsters are mad about, I do know that this song was really fun to play, even if the faster part at the end took quite a bit of practice to get right.  It is also totally truthful and not fanciful storytelling that Motzand himself taught it to me, and you can all believe this without question because I am a very honest and trustworthy Duck who has never given anyone any reason to doubt me….

In the Misty Woods

I’ve never been great at coming up with original ideas.  That’s probably why I so enjoy fan art and fan fiction because it saves me the trouble of having to come up with any original characters or worlds for them to inhabit.  A little while back, however, the idea for a random original creature popped into my head, and I just had to draw it before my rare bout of creativity vanished.

Celebrate Halloween with Some Gluten-Free Brains!

October is almost upon us, and though Halloween may be just a day, we’ve got a whole month to celebrate the spookiest time of the year!  How am I celebrating October?  Why, I’ve switched to my super cool Haunted Mansion ringtone.  Thanks for asking!  Now getting lots of mysterious calls from strangers is fun!

This is also the time of year I can finally enjoy the silly zombie shirt I designed for SpreadShirt!  If any of you are interested, you can find it on the SpreadShirt Marketplace right here , starting at $15.49! Food allergies can be scary, but at least brains are gluten-free!

This shirt design is zombie-approved

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.
