Cough up some buttons, I'll throw one onto my livejournal. That'll gain you at least two readers right away. Whoever else wants to put a button somewhere can/will too, that's sure better than nothing.

I wouldn't worry about it yet. Do yourself a favor and don't look at stats until you've been back for at least six months. They can be a downer and fuck with your work.

That said, the internet comic world is a much different place than when you left. (Not necessarily for the better, but I digress.) I remember you did some music still have sound equipment or the ability to put stuff up on the web? How about any video editing stuff? If you don't, I do, and I think a 30 -60 second little video as sort of a trailer for your comic would be good on YouTube. Your characters would be fairly easy to animate, maybe have them static with moving mouths. Just a short little thing that would leave people with their mouths open going "what the hell was THAT?!" I'd be happy to work on it with you...let me know if you're interested.

Yeah, that's true, looking at stats when you've just started is just going to mess with your head.

I've never made link buttons or graphics or anything before. What are the standard sizes these days?

And Owen... I would be thrilled, honored, touched, and so forth if you would work with us on something like that. Or on ANYTHING for that matter!

I don't want you to think I'm sucking up here, and we've been friends for a long time.. But you should know that YDK was the only remotely Keen-related site I had the heart to look at during my 'away time.' Every few months I would come to the site and catch up. I would laugh and it was one of the few things that made me laugh, or even smile, during those two years or so. I love the Poz, man.

So yes. Absolutely. Would you please email me from your preferred address so we may discuss?

88x31 is the small ones, I think. I can whip something together too, I did for a while ago when I didn't like what he was offering, and he ended up putting it on his site. My bandwidth went thru the roof when I still had my old URL since he linked me, it was funny. His fans came to me thinking I was another comic or something, my site was just a personal site.

Buffy and Veronica Mars? I think I just popped a brain vessel. Please tell me Amanda wrote that. There's no way I could recommend anything with that kind of taste in shows, I'm a girl but I'm not a sissy. :P

Not that Amanda DOESN'T love BUFFY and VM.. But that message was from me. They're both quality shows and I recommend either without apology or shame.

B-movies and hair bands. :D

Heh heh... Those aren't even my guilty pleasures. Those are the two best shows I've seen in the past decade or so.

Somebody recommended LUCKY LOUIE to me this past week, saying the writing style reminded them of LWIBH. What I've seen so far has been really funny.

Oh I try to avoid recommending other comics to artists, that just seems goofy to me. I've convinced myself you're all friends and have yearly get-togethers at some random restaurant to mock all us fans. :D

Yep, and this year's party is up in Canada, in honor of the Kuehner's return to comics. They rented out Ed Belfour's old house. He should be moved out by now.

the only party we could do would be using a bunch of webcams and a messenger that inevitably would delay the "party" for a few seconds:

guy 1: partyyyy!!!!!! ...... . . . . . .. .. . .. ... . . . .. . . . . . .. . . ... .. . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . ...... .... guy 2: ... .... ....... what?? I can't hear you! ... . . . . . .. . . .. . .... .... .. guy 1: partyyyy!!! aww, fuck this

See, I can reuse threads too. Man, that whole "I havent' seen them in 15 years" sounds like something my own dad would say. God help you if you ask about his music career, you'll be here for at least three days.

I guess the dorkiest concert I've been to was my first one, Culture Club. Followed closely in dorkiness was the Morris Day & The Time "concert" which cost $7 and was at the racetrack. Hollywood Park, I think, can't remember. Not ON the racetrack, but they played like it was a $7 show, I was disappointed.

Yeah, but I bet your dad would never draw a comic about drugging someone in order to use them to help get your mental girlfriend out of an institution. Or would he?

Anyway, on the official dork scale, seeing Culture Club at ANY point during their career rates a 8.7 (out of 10) Going to see H&O rates a 6.2. Actually, it's less dorky to go see H&O now than when they were famous. I can't get into all the specifics why, just trust me. It's a very scientific and well thought out formula.

BTW, I'm assuming the H&O show was at a normal concert venue. If it was at a circus, carnival, state fair, or any type of Indian-run casino then the dork factor jumps to 7.1. If you screamed when you recognized a song from the first few notes, then sang along, AND you were sober, then the factor goes to 8.1.

So, there are a few variables, but you get the idea.

The Culture Club show was actually their reunion tour back in '98-'99, but I guess it still counts that it was them and not a cover band with one original member.

well, the dorkiest concert I *almost* went to was Tone Loc, who was supposed to play at a bar here called "the Pump". He was detained at the border, however, and never made it to the gig. Possibly due to the attempted transport of some Funky Cold Medina over the 49th parallel.

I may never know, and I certainly don't care.

This was not at the height of this man's popularity, either. This was in the late '90's, when Irony was on it's deathbed, and he was so lame as to be a cool thing to go and see.

Having said that, I also *just* missed Vanilla Ice during his Heavy Metal phase when visiting a friend in Fargo, ND, one time.

And let us not disrespect the Buffy; Joss Whedon, as the T-Shirt says, is my Master Now. And Veronica Mars is amazing, too.

Wow Jason man, it's too bad Loc was detained. That would have been a remarkably cheesy show, no doubt.

Funny you should mention Vanilla Ice, back in his 1991 heyday I actually had tickets for one of his shows. Apparently though, as his hit track became bigger and bigger he decided he was simply too big for the modest venue he was booked in and he personally cancelled the show.

Had it not been for that man being such a tool, I may have warmed up to hip-hop a full decade sooner than I did.
