Looking For Quacks In The Pavement

Great. Now what?

Clearly, I need a new project.

The comic ran for four years and succeeded, in that some people read it and were entertained for the duration of its run. I have considered and rejected the idea of picking that back up: I remember quite well how tired of making it I’d become, toward the end.

Another writing project? Given the dull thud made by the arrival of the last one… probably not just yet. Le sigh.

It’s been a while since I last put together a music appreciation project. And, in that time, I’ve learned enough about fair use guidelines to suspect that I’d never be able to assemble anything safe enough to post which would be even remotely entertaining. (Also: Please don’t go digging in this website’s archives. Ahem.) This depresses me because there are few things on this planet that I can geek out about more than my favorite bands and songs.

Both of the photography projects that I’ve considered for the last few months will basically entail considerable equipment outlays. Time lapse is best done with a dedicated hunk of hardware, and stop motion demands a remote trigger and better lighting and a bigger workspace than I have available right now.

Well, great. Now that I’ve eliminated every idea I could come up with so far, I’m back at square numero uno.

I haven’t given up thinking about it, but wow oh wow am I doing poorly at thinking of ideas or what?

    I thought the “Ducks on Stuff” project was fun. What about reviving that?

    • GreyDuck

      Hmm, you’ve got a point there. It’s at least something to do with the materials at hand. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wonderduck

    Well, I liked the story. Hmph.

    • GreyDuck

      That makes one person who will admit to having even read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m glad you liked it though!

      • Wonderduck

        My brother-in-feathers, any project you do, I will read/watch/listen to/help you hide the bodies. That’s what ducks DO.

    You don’t have to entertain everyone! You can just set Project: Improv Karel by making him go interact more with everyone and do a little “jot down stuff in my phone about how many people I was deliberately social with today” (even if it was just elevator conversation). Supposedly, more social interactions make people happier, even if they’re introverts.
