Remember “Taxi Driver” with Robert De Niro? I saw this on MyRubberDucks.de and had to share it! You talkin’ to me?…..or is it…..You quackin’ to me?
The sensei gives some words of advice to the ducklings before they head out into the world…..
“Kill not the goose that lays the golden eggs, grasshoppers.”
A couple of days ago, it was my birthday. I was planning to go to Vegas and go crazy….meet up with Just Ducky and perhaps even get a rubber duck tattoo whilst getting showgirls and Elvises to hold my ducks….but flights were so expensive this year that I couldn’t make it. Next year….next year Anyway, Just Ducky had a birthday gift for me and sent it on it’s way to NYC and today I received it! What duck-a-licious surprise could be inside?! Let’s find out!
Ducks: “Oh look! A package from Just Ducky! What’s in the box! What’s in the box! Let’s find out!”
A rumble was heard from inside the sugar container…..”Let me outta hyah! Let me outta hyah!”
Vegas Baby (the little duck for those who aren’t familiar): “Hey, give me a hand…..er wing….and let’s pry this thing open!”
Sugar Baby (that’s the name I’ve given the new duck): “Whew! What a long flight. It’s nice to finally be able to stretch out ma wings!”
Thank you so much for the gifts, Just Ducky! I love the Sugar Factory and the duck! Next year the duck and I can come out next year and visit! Woohoo!
Duck Fader: “Happy May fourth! May the fourth be with you!”
Luke Pondwalker: “I’m Luke Pondwalker. I’m here to rescue you, Princess Layer.”
Duck Fader: “The force is strong with this one.”
My friend Jon Miller who lives in Las Vegas is notorious for traveling around town with his giant rubber duck named “Just Ducky.” I’ve had the pleasure of running around Vegas with him and people really get a kick out of the duck. I recently saw this picture that he shot and wanted to share it because it made me smile. You can see more of Just Ducky’s adventures on facebook. Just click here. *sniff sniff* Ah, spring is in the air!
“Why is the smile on Cheese duck positively beaming in this picture?” you might ask. It’s because Cheese is getting a picture taken with the one and only…one of a kind..metallic gold Mozart rubber duck from Austroducks. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Austroducks line of rubber ducks, Austroducks creates rubber ducks inspired by famous Austrians. Some of those notable Austrians include Mozart, Sigmund Freud, and Gustav Klimt. And, this is just the beginning of the Austroducks creations. You see, Rudolf Doppelbauer….the creator and CEO of Austroducks is producing even more designs! I have see the designs….I can’t tell about the new designs because they are top secret….but I will say this….the ducks are going to be AmAzInG!!
I got the chance to hang out with Rudolf on his visit to NYC. He is an amazing soul. We exchanged a few gifts. He gave me one of his newest creations (Gustav Klimt duck), some Austroducks postcards, a program from the Gustav Klimt exhibit at the Neue Galerie New York (1048 Fifth Avenue, at 86th Street, (212) 628-6200, showing through June)….oh yeah…and a Mozartkugal confection only available in Salzburg….not shown because I already ate it
A picture of Rudi and I at Lincoln Center….with rubbber ducks, of course
Duckshow is pleased to announce that “Whispers in the Palace”–Duckshow’s latest stop motion pro-duck-tion–was nominated for 3 awards at the Sparrow Three Cubed Film Fest out here in Queens, New York. The nominations were for supporting actor and actress (Oy Vey!) as well as best screenplay. Now that’s something to quack about! View the duck flick again by clicking here.
In the warmer months some businesses will put out water bowls for dogs as a courtesy. Apparently there has been some confusion about who/what can drink from this dog bowl because the shop posted this sign above it.
My friend Rudi came to visit NYC this week and saw this sign. He took a picture of it…..but he added a couple of rubber ducks and sent it to me. I had to share it because I got such a kick out of it! Enjoy!
Also-please check out Rudi’s line of rubber ducks called Austroducks….featured in this picture.
