New Horizons Island and House Tour

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about my plans for Quackville, my island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  After hours of terraforming and painstakingly attempting to make my plans a reality, my semi-Disney-inspired island is now complete, including a condensed version of Main Street USA, Frontierland, Adventureland, New Orleans Square, and Tom Sawyer Island on the left and a three-tier residential area and zen garden on the right.  If you’d like to see a tour of my island and house, you can find the video below: Continue reading New Horizons Island and House Tour

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

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….

Piano Time: It’s Raining Somewhere Else and Organization XIII

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
