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
Ever since playing Undertale, the Duck has been inspired to return to several abandoned hobbies, piano and drawing. As far as the former goes, the first song I decided to learn was It’s Raining Somewhere Else. Fortunately, there are some very useful tutorials out there on Youtube. The one I used is below: Continue reading Piano Time: It’s Raining Somewhere Else and Organization XIII
It should be more than clear by now that the Duck is a big fan of kitties. Having had many kitties of my own that are loved like the family they are, not to mention my ability to befriend almost any cat I meet, cats and I have a bond indeed. Therefore, it was quite a treat when I learned about a Youtube channel called Kitten Academy, which sports a 24-hour a day, 365-day a year live stream showing the many kittens they are currently fostering. This doesn’t include the live “Kitten Close-Ups” that take place every evening where, as the name suggests, you can see the kittens up close and personal.
Kitten Academy deserved a shout-out of its own because it is more than just a regular Youtube channel. The two people who run it, Mr. A and DJ, are kind people who have chosen to give up several rooms of their house and devote their spare time to fostering kittens until they can be adopted. In addition to the “alumni”, they also have six “faculty” cats who remain with them, from Headmaster Acro and the elusive Headmistress Smokey to several “Professors”, Custard, Loganberry, Ari, and Eddie. Oh, and they also have a very large, but very gentle dog named Elsie who seems to be in charge of ensuring that cats can get along with their canine counterparts. With a doggy as nice as Elsie, growing kittens can’t help but see dogs as friends rather than foes. Continue reading Youtuber Shout-Out: Kitten Academy
My blog is now seven years old, folks! How cool is that? I had hoped that such a lucky number would mean good luck, and it pretty much did, as a lot of nifty neato things happened this year! Before we get to the good stuff, let’s review my current stats. Hmm, let’s see here…subscribers went up from 295 to 349, and total views has increased from 24,723 to 29,061. Mm-kay. My best day continues to be December 9, 2012 with 208 views.
I’m super happy my subscribers and views have increased this past year. (And it’s all thanks to you guys!) But the fact that my blog’s best day was 4.5 years ago makes me cry on the inside a little. Continue reading The Blog’s a Lucky Seven Years Old
If you’re a fan of the Haunted Mansion, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with the infamous Hatbox Ghost. This mysterious figure was originally intended to be a part of the ride, but he was removed shortly after the Haunted Mansion opened to mortals like you and me. His brief appearance caused some confusion and also gave rise to a rather intriguing legend. Had anyone really seen this ghoulish Hatbox Ghost or was he a mere hallucination? For a ride revolving around a haunted estate inhabited by 999 “happy haunts”, it was all the more chilling for one of these ghosts to have seemingly vanished without a trace. To this day, they say that no record remains of what became of the original Hatbox Ghost figure. Of course, that’s not the end of the story, nor is it quite the beginning. Continue reading The Legend of the Hatbox Ghost
Occasionally, I like to look through the list of games on current or recent consoles to see if there are any obscure games that sound interesting. Back when the Wii was still part of the “current” category of consoles, I came upon a game called Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon. If you have been following my gameplay series for it on our Youtube channel, then it will come as no surprise that I did finally get around to playing the game. In actuality, a big motivation for buying the game was due to the fact that it looked like an interesting game to test out my brand new Live Gamer Portable capture card. It wasn’t too long, so it wasn’t a big commitment, and it looked a bit spooky, which could create some good reactions. And the $20 price tag on Amazon helped a lot, too.
Nevertheless, I heard some negative things about the game before I bought it, namely the issue with weapons randomly breaking and monotonous levels later in the game. While I can largely agree with these complaints, neither of these issues were the game’s greatest crimes. But, I’ll get to that soon. Continue reading Trusting the Story
Happy late Halloween, everyone! I had a pretty special one this year, and you might know why. First off, the night before Halloween was United We Game’s very first live stream on Youtube, where I spent about an hour playing the horrifying PC game, Five Nights at Freddy’s. For those of you who didn’t get a chance to check it out when it was live, I have provided the link below for you to view at your leisure if you so choose. Please do. Just keep in mind that it doesn’t officially start until about 8 minutes in when I start my spooky intro. The time before that is just testing. Continue reading A Ducky Halloween 2015: Fun With FNAF and Jano
In the past, I believe I posted a few, well, posts about some videos I had uploaded to Youtube, namely some gameplay videos of me screaming as I got pursued by Slender Man. Yeah. It was scary stuff. It’s also possible I posted about some readings I did of some of my fan fiction, but it’s possible I didn’t. If not, forget I said anything. Seriously, don’t watch those. They’re rather…not that good. Continue reading UWG Expands to Youtube
