Dave!The Artificial Duck Co. Store will be reopening tomorrow, May 8th, at 12:00 noon, Seattle Time (click here to see when that is in your corner of the world).

It may be a week later than I had wanted (dang you TequilaCon!!), but things ended up being a lot more complicated than I had planned. It seemed that for every step in progress I made, something popped up to knock me back. Add the graphics... lose the text. Transfer the shipping table... have to update the postage costs. Publish the database... find a table has gone missing. It was enough to drive me insane.

But it's all done.

The only thing left to do is test everything in the morning to make sure it's working. Then we reopen at noon...

DAVETOON! Bad Monkey wearing an Artificial Duck T-Shirt while holding playing cards fanned out.



In less-happy news...

Why is it that cool stuff always seems to happen just after I leave somewhere?

I left New York on Monday, so naturally today is the day that The Metropolitan Museum of Art decided to start an exhibit called Super-Heroes: Fashion and Fantasy...

The cover to the Super Fashion Guide exhibit book from The Met.

I'm not really into fashion, but I think it would be very cool to see how stuff from comic books has influenced clothing in Real Life. Oh well, it's open until September, so maybe I'll have a chance to see it before it's gone. If not, I'm hopeful that somebody at Geeks of Doom will review the show.

Now, if you will excuse me, I'm going to go to bed early and dream that a giant rock falls on Hillary Clinton.

  1. Ooh! I hope you get to see that exhibit, too. That way I’ll get a chance to see it, too, from your ever entertaining point of view. Keep us posted.

    5 in the morning! That is the time I have to get up so that I can go shopping! I suppose it’s not as bad as 2am – then you have to work out if it’s better to stay up late or get up early.

  3. Winter says:

    My daughter is going to be soooo happy! She can’t wait to buy some playing cards. Teens are so impatient. Altho, she said she wouldn’t have been impatient about the cards if I had sent her to TC08. Sheesh.

  4. Göran says:

    Cool, I´m ready for some shopping 🙂

  5. Turnbaby says:

    Now now–don’t be a hater sugar.;-)

    YAY for the store finally opening–I think you maybe wanted to whip us non-winners into a frenzy.

    Cause you know i just have to have a Bad Monkey shirt to wear when Faby and I stroll through Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach in June 😉

  6. bubblewench says:

    Hey – I’m actually going to NYC with my dad to see that this summer! Funny you mentioned it… we just decided last night. I’ll let you know how it is.

  7. Avitable says:

    Buying some Blogography playing cards will likely be the highlight of my week. That’s how awesome they are.

  8. kapgar says:

    Yay! Good stuff from the Duck!

  9. Mr. Fabulous says:

    Bout time that damn store opened…

  10. Glenda says:

    Yay! I can’t wait! AND I just got my “economic stimulus” check…so I can really go crazy. Shirts for the whole family, whoo hoo!

  11. Tug says:

    wheeeeeeee! I can quit stalking your store closed page now, and MAYBE get some work done!

  12. Hilly Sue says:

    Yay for the store! Now I can stop begging you to be nice to me and slip me some early stuff just cause we’re friends ;). Ok, I never did that but I thought it….

  13. That’s strange. I’ve been having the same dream, no wish, no dream…

  14. ChillyWilly says:

    Yeah! And wouldn’t you know, i still have some room on my credit card. Time to spend some money at the Duck store.

  15. Poppy says:


    (btw: yay)

  16. kilax says:

    Today’s front page of the Chicago Sun-Times said the same thing about Hillary. Okay, is said “Hillary. Give it up.” I am anxious to read what that’s all about on the way home.

  17. Nicole says:

    this falls perfect as it’s payday friday!!!!!


  18. Mocha says:

    I love the Duck store. It’s gotta lotta Dave in there and you rank pretty high for me. Even higher than the monkey.

    So why do I have the monkey shirt and not one with a picture of YOU?

    Now I’ll probably dream about wearing a Dave t-shirt while I watch that rock fall on Hillary.

  19. So much to choose from … Great stuff 🙂 I must set a limit .. I must set a limit …..

  20. Mooselet says:

    So I have to work an extra shift or two to pay off what I just put on my card – who gives a shit! Good bargains and good quality, plus Her Majesty will be stoked to get her Bad Monkey shirts.

  21. whall says:

    Can we drop a big rock on top of Hillary Clinton?
