Greetings, everyone! We’ve got another Sporadic Quack for you all today. You can watch the full thing below, but allow me to summarize for the sake of this post. First of all, I have finally upgraded to new video editing software, Adobe Premiere Elements, which is proving to be far more packed with featured, and far more stable, than my old program. Ha HA, Movie Maker, your habit of randomly losing sound and deleting stuff shall trouble me no more! Also, we’ve got more t-shirt designs that I’d like to share with you all. Because art is fun! Random Marketplace designs include:
And some new holiday-themed Duck of Indeed t-shirts have been added to my SpreadShop, as well, the Turkey of Indeed and Christmas Caroler Duck!
Last of all, the video below includes a little tour of the Arizona Route 66 Passport. This is a passport I received at the Powerhouse Visitor Center during the mini-adventure Mother Duck and I took to Kingman not so very long ago to visit Route 66. In case you missed it, the post, along with all five episodes of our trip, can be found here. By visiting various locations along Arizona’s portion of Route 66, you can obtain stamps. Collect enough, and you apparently get a nifty certificate. The passport is cool enough on its own, though, as it contains photos and info about the various towns in Arizona that Route 66 passes through. Neat? Well, I certainly think so!
A little while back, I decided to record a few videos about my gaming collection and Disney collection. In addition to all of those lovely things, the Duck has accumulated a variety of other interesting objects that I’d like to share with you all. Two of my favorite collections are dragons and glass animals, so if you’re interested, please watch the video below! I think I have some pretty interesting items, including a wooden dragon puppet and an intricate glass phoenix…. Continue reading Bonus Post: Dragon Collecting→
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. Continue reading Getting Our Kicks in Kingman, AZ→
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! Continue reading Bonus Post: Unboxing Some Sweet Undertale Goodness→
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! Continue reading Halloween 2017: Grim Grinning Ghosts→
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! Continue reading Bonus Post: Spooky Slender Man Stories→
You may recall a few years back that Mother Duck and I visited a butterfly conservatory. This particular conservatory is called Butterfly Wonderland in Scottsdale, AZ, and is, in fact, the largest butterfly conservatory in the United States. As you might expect, this delightful place is filled with butterflies of all shapes, sizes, and colors, and since you get to walk right inside the lush conservatory they call home, there is nothing stopping them from landing on you if they see fit. We recently decided to revisit the Butterfly Wonderland, and this time, I had the pleasure of recording our time there. A video sure beats a bunch of photos, right?
Furthermore, about a year ago, they built the OdySea Aquarium right next door, which has the honor of being the Southwest’s largest aquarium. This place was pretty awesome, with exhibits spanning from rivers, to the seashore, to the ocean, along with a rotating Living Sea Carousel, where you can see sharks, sea turtles, and sea lions, among other aquatic creatures. Continue reading Butterfly Wonderland and OdySea Aquarium→
It is thanks to our diligent and daily viewing of Kitten Academy on Youtube that our cat Elsa has become increasingly spoiled. The first thing their channel inspired us to buy her was a small cat tower. While her “cat tower” is only a couple feet tall, and thus, really doesn’t constitute as a proper tower, she seems to love it just fine and spends plenty of time napping on top of it or lounging in the large carpeted tube. (Larger cat towers are either too difficult to put together, too large for our car, or too awkward for anything larger than a small kitten to climb.) Continue reading The Kitten We Almost Adopted→
With the Duck’s renewed interest in Disney, I recently recalled a very special container that had been spending many lonely years in the garage. This container, well, contains a plethora of Disney items collected for me by my grandmother on my mother’s side, whom I only met when I was too young to remember. Despite not getting the chance to know her, it is a nice thought indeed to know that she was thinking of me and buying these items for me when she didn’t have that much money. In today’s video, I would like to share with you all the many wonderful Disney items my grandmother had collected for me. Continue reading Bonus Post: My Grandmother’s Retro Disney Collection→
Mother Duck and I really enjoy dollhouses, and over the past year or so, we have found a good number of them down at the Brass Armadillo antique mall. Several of these we have purchased and fixed up with all manner of furniture and even flooring and wallpaper. In case you missed it, I have already written about a Marx tin dollhouse and a Victorian-style dollhouse, the posts for which you can find here, here, and here.
Well, we recently visited Hobby Lobby, which has several models of dollhouses that you can either put together yourself or buy pre-assembled. The chances of us building a dollhouse are very slim, as past circumstances have seen us try and fail at assembling a bookcase and a cat tower, so that was out of the question. And though we could buy dollhouses that were already put together, this doubled their prices, putting them well into the $500 range for the nicer models. And this would just not do.
