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! Continue reading The Duck’s Youtube Channel…Goes the Way of the Dodo
During my recent adventures on Deviant Art, I stumbled upon yet more wonderful Undertale fan art from Zarla. Apparently, DA member Jazaaboo had written lyrics for Papyrus’ battle theme, Bonetrousle, and Zarla created a fittingly adorable comic out of it. Various people have sung this song on Youtube, and of course, I simply needed to do this, as well! Behold, the Duck’s okay singing abilities and equally as okay Adobe Premiere skills! I’m pretty much an expert on panning and zooming at this point. And be sure to watch out for Undertale Duck…. Continue reading An Undertale Comic Dub: My Favorite Holiday
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
Hey, every-people, it’s time for another Youtuber Shout-Out! I have already covered gaming channels and urban exploring channels, so that’s pretty cool. But, as fun as abandoned buildings are, sometimes it’s kind of nice to check out places that are still inhabited. In fact, there are cool things all over the United States that are interesting to see, like roadside attractions, museums, and let’s not forget…Disneyland and Disneyworld! Problem is, I hate travelling, so my chosen solution is to simply sit back and watch other people do all the work for me. Below are my top three channels that will allow you to see all that the United States (including the famous Route 66) has to offer without ever having to leave home. Continue reading Youtuber Shout-Out: Exploring America
One thing I doubt any of you guys really know about me quite yet is that I enjoy videos on urban exploring. In case you’re not familiar with the term, this basically applies to people who explore abandoned buildings, often with the purposes of documenting what they see in order to preserve history before these places are inevitably torn down or collapse from age. There’s something really fascinating about seeing old furniture and photographs left in previously inhabited places, admiring old architecture, or simply witnessing the natural decay of manmade structures. I actually got into urban exploring when I looked up a video one day on the world’s creepiest animatronics. From there, I found videos on creepy abandoned theme parks, which led to me watching videos on all sorts of abandoned places, from hospitals to schools to even nuclear power plants. Below are my top two urban exploring channels! Continue reading Youtuber Shout-Out: Urban Exploring
Hey there, all you people out there in the world! Since my recent “enlightening”, as I’ve been calling it since…five seconds ago, I’ve decided to really start putting a renewed effort into all of my many endeavors. Not only do I finally have the motivation necessary to succeed in such things, but I am low on cash and might need to take a break from cosplay for the time being. Which opens up my schedule quite a bit. Hooray for being low on money! These efforts include thinking up more interesting topics for both blogs (this one and United We Game), increased videos for my own, rather neglected, Youtube channel (in the form of readings of my fan fiction and maybe some guided tours through all of my cool junk, gaming or otherwise, for starters), and a general increased focus on our United We Game Youtube channel.
One new thing I’d like to do on this here blog is a short series (currently, I have three posts in mind) celebrating some of my favorite Youtubers in the hopes of gaining them some additional views and subscribers. Depending on the channels up for consideration, I’d like to leave out very large channels unless they’re the only ones on my list. Since I already spent enough time rambling, let’s start with a pretty straightforward category. Gaming channels, a topic that should come as no surprise to anyone. I like gaming. It’s neat. Let’s get started. Continue reading Youtuber Shout-Out: Gaming Channels
Hey everyone, I’m interrupting my usually scheduled blog posts to present a trailer video I made for an upcoming gameplay series starting this Wednesday, November 23, on our United We Game Youtube channel. It’s a very special game that is very dear to my heart, and I can only hope a good number of people decide to join me in this adventure! And please excuse my video editing skills. I’m still learning! Continue reading Coming in Three Days
Has it already been six years already? Actually, it feels longer… Okay, well, today is the Duck’s sixth anniversary of blogging, and it’s been a pretty busy year. First off, let’s start with some stats. I currently have 295 followers, a grand total of 24723 views, with my best day being 208 views on…December 9, 2012? Huh, good to know my best day ever came about three and a half years ago. You’re really moving up in the world, Duck….
Now, for the major events, and there’s been some big ones. Well, one anyway. This past year, United We Game, the other blog I write for, finally started a Youtube channel! As a result, I finally got to begin a long-time dream of mine, learning how to record gameplay. In that time, I have learned how to record gameplay with video game consoles and the PC, how to edit videos, and how to live stream using XSplit Broadcaster, with my first live stream thus far being my Five Nights at Freddy’s Halloween live stream. Exciting stuff! And educational, too. If you like gaming and haven’t already visited our channel, please do. We have lots of great gaming-related videos on there. You’ll love it. Continue reading Six Years of Being a Quack
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
