Austroducks Visits NYC

“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 ;)

Here are the Austroducks designs thus far….with more to come! You can get them from Duckshop and Squeaky Ducks and of course the Austroducks website.

Whispers in the Palace Gets Three Nominations!

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.

Water for dogs only!

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.

Sensei Says…

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him to use the internet and he won’t bother you for weeks.”

The Duck in the Fez Sez….

Cheese Duck: “Well, I posted a bill anyway, so put that in your pipe and smoke it!”

Batter Up Duck!

Cheese Duck: “Get ready for a “fly” ball!”

It’s that time of the year again….baseball season! So batter up, Duck! No “fowl” balls this year! Now… ball!

Words of Wisdom from the Sensei…

“A bird in the hand is better than one flying overhead.”

It’s a nice day for a duck wedding….

I now pronounce you drake and hen!
