Unkymoods is Officially Gone!

  • Posted on August 22, 2005 at 12:42 pm

Well, I finally found an answer. It took a while, but I finally found Mr. Unky via the back door that is Can Hed Comix. This was his free comic strip that is also currently unavailable. Sounds like the guy had a rough time trying to keep Unkymoods afloat.

Here’s what Mr. Unky (a.k.a. Marc Lutz) had to say:

Hi there.
Remember me? I’m the guy who created Can Hed Comix a long while ago, and I used to post the comic strips on this web site. Well, I’m back, and I have news for those of you who are interested. Here’s the nutshell version.

UnkyMoods.com is no longer in existence. It had a good run. It made people happy. Ultimately, the hosting issues and the overall programming issues made me unhappy, and that’s just not proper. It’s either going to fade away for good, or I’m going to sell it. Any takers?

Ducks In Lodi is about to celebrate its one-year anniversary with the Lodi News-Sentinel. It has gone from being published twice a month (or every other week) to being published weekly. Huzzah for the quackers!

Can Hed Comix is still in existence, but only drawn when I have the time and inspiration. I’ll be working on setting up the archives of the old stuff for you die-hard fans.

That’s about it. More soon!

I can sure sympathize with you, Marc! I can only imagine the kind of bandwidth needs Unkymoods had. If you had an email address somewhere (and I will go digging for one after posting this), I would like to write and talk to you about your experience with Unkymoods. I’d like to explore what possibilities might lie ahead for such a great service. Maybe sell the mood sets off to blog owners at a certain set price? Or find someone with unlimited bandwidth (this would unfortunately not be me) to take over? Or find a way to fund it with advertising? Or something?

If you happen to read this, please contact me at jenna at magees dot net (I’m sure you can form this into a reasonable email address 🙂 ).

Or it could have been a bus… make it a double decker. Or a very large recreational vehicle. Whatever it was, it hit me like a ton of bricks this weekend!

Sorry for not blogging, but I’ve been completely wiped out. On Saturday, I could barely move – at all. Fortunately for me, Terry was able to carry me up and down the stairs when I needed it. Seriously. I couldn’t even walk. I felt as weak as a newborn kitten and as spacey as an astronaut. I pretty much just slept and watched TV. Whatever didn’t entail moving.

Sunday I paid for missing my medicine on Friday night. 🙁 Wah! It was inevitable, I knew, but it still doesn’t make me like it at all. I had the vision disturbances around noon, signaling an impending migraine, but some Excedrin nipped it in the bud. A slip while cleaning the shower on Sunday night didn’t improve things at all. Fortunately, a nice soak in the tub seems to have kept the muscles from tightening up and/or spasming.

Today, I’m back to feeling really spacey. The last time I felt like this was when I figured out I was having a reaction to DayQuil (non-drowsy… HAH!) and slammed my finger in a desk drawer at work. So, the future for me is uncertain today.

Unfortunately, with all of the wierdness this weekend, I didn’t get a lot of stitching accomplished. This truly bites because I said that I would post the two baby quilt squares today. Neither is finished. Plus, I have models I need to be stitching. Argh! 😯 Well, I have to feel better before I can be effective. There just isn’t any way around that. Hopefully, people will understand!
