The Duck’s Dapper Disneyland Slideshow 2017

I realize that after all these many posts discussing different aspects of our trip to Disneyland, not once have I really just talked about how our trip went.  Yes, I talked about rides and food and delightful Disney merchandise.  But do you know what hotel we stayed at?  Furthermore, did you know that we went on Dapper Day?  No, there is a pretty good chance you did not.  You may very well not even know what Dapper Day is to begin with!  You see how neglectful I’ve been?

The Legend of the Hatbox Ghost

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.

The Duck of Indeed…Now in HD

You’ve read my posts.  You’ve listened to me jabber on whilst playing random games on Youtube.  You’ve seen me in full cosplay regalia.  And yet, even so, the Duck of Indeed has remained an elusive creature, only spotted briefly during full moons, eclipses, and if you happen to visit a Subway at just the right time.  If you take a picture of the Duck of Indeed, it, just like any photo taken of a Bigfeet or a UFO, turns out blurred and uncertain.  Does the Duck of Indeed even exist?  Has it all merely been a strange and unsettling dream!

How does a Duck even type when birds don’t have thumbs?  Do such questions not unsettle you! Continue reading The Duck of Indeed…Now in HD

Youtuber Shout-Out: Exploring America

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.

Bonus Time: Youtube Commenced!

In recent weeks, I have been meaning to make a comeback on my personal Duck of Indeed Youtube channel.  And how exactly does a Duck go about planning such an endeavor, you might be asking?  With spreadsheets.  Yes, the work behind creating videos for Youtube, at least for me, involves color-coded charts and to-do lists and schedules.  I never realized before how much of a data-obsessed duck I am until I looked back on all my work and reminisced over how much fun it all was.  That’s right, charts are fun.  For most, I would suspect these kinds of things would be a tedious chore, but for me, data is a hobby.

While I have plans for more complex videos in the future, that will all have to wait until I have the skills and the technology to do it.  (I found a $350 camera for $100 on Amazon if you buy the pink version.  So tempting.)  In the meantime, I already have roughly a year’s worth of simpler videos planned out, with dates and everything.  I have been busy!  These videos will include readings of my fan fiction, starting with my first collection of short stories.  (I break my stories into groups of 100,000 words; collection 1 was finished a few years ago, and collection 2 is still in the works.)

Youtuber Shout-Out: Urban Exploring

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!

Bonus Time: The Duck’s Youtube Channel

A select handful of people may be aware that the Duck has a Youtube channel.  Well, the channel has been neglected for a good while now, partly due to the fact that creating videos for United We Game’s channel has been my highest priority this past year.  Nevertheless, I have decided to finally give my personal Youtube channel the love and attention it so deserves. Continue reading Bonus Time: The Duck’s Youtube Channel

Youtuber Shout-Out: Gaming Channels

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.

Coming in Three Days

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!

Six Years of Being a Quack

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.
