Father of Son of Stuck Funky


Hey folks it’s the author posting as Stuck Funky here. Some of you may remember the blog ‘Stuck Funky.’ I started it when Lisa was diagnosed with cancer for a second time and carried it on for about three years. Life demands eventually caught up and I lost the fire (and the time) to post on a regular basis. It didn’t help that I also received a few threatening letters from lawyers. Since then, I’ve been checking in only once in a while. I’m continually impressed with how much the SoSF community has grown. Why, back in my day, I would post and wait to see what OB Dan and a small handful of others had to say (well, mostly OB Dan), but I digress…

When Tfhackett posted on twitter about the guest-author contest and the anniversary, I emailed WP and asked if I could have access as long as I deleted any material I don’t own rights to. I wanted to add the archive to this existing blog and make it a cool 9 years of FW snark. They actually un-suspended the blog with all of the images intact! After it was restored, I realized that I deleted the blog from my user account so I technically can’t access the blog to edit anything – so it’s out there and I can’t do anything about it right now. The other lesson here? even if you think you deleted your embarrassing livejournal from ten years ago, the published files could be sitting on a server somewhere.

My point is, if you have any time to kill this week check out Stuck Funky and you may find that nothing (or everything) has changed. My recommendation would be to start at the beginning to get my realtime analysis of what became L’s story. I have no idea how long it will be up, but I’m going to wait another week or so before contacting WP about either getting access or deleting the site altogether before lawyers resurface.

Thanks again for letting me post last week and happy snarking!

    Les still has those pink panties, sealed up tight in a ziplock bag in the back of his closet. These days he only pulls them out when a new Lisa Video surfaces so he can take a few huffs while he we weeps.

    Thanks StuckFunky, it’s interesting to see how the strip has changed through the years. It’s also interesting how Les has been slowly de-emphasized as Act III has trudged along (not that I’m complaining), he used to be WAY more front & center than he is these days. The first three or four years of Act III were like a huge victory lap where he couldn’t go a few days without mentioning “Lisa’s Story” in one way or another.

  3. Good reading…you know, it took me a while before I realized I was reading from near-end-of-May toward beginning-of-May. That’s how gripping and detailed Funky Winkerbean is.

  4. This was a delightful, nostalgic visit to where it all started. Thanks StuckFunky. 🙂

    Wow, I didn’t realize all of this was back online. There goes my afternoon…

    Good to hear from you Stuck Funky.

  6. I stand in line, Blogfather.

    Superdupes. I wonder how OB Dan is doing – he may still be around. I certainly haven’t been hammering away with the old gusto, but I do stop by every day to keep up. The strip seems to have a lot less outrage in the past few years, but it’s still a ghastly mess. By the way, that picture of Les far gone in the smell of Lisa’s drawers really exemplifies the outrage that I miss. Thanks for posting the archive access, it will be good to see what was happening.

    Reading through the old Stuck Funky:
    Damn, I forgot how much I MISSED Cory. Or rather, how much less obnoxious I found his surly, dim-witted, delinquent self than the current arc of him being a BIG BRAVE BOLD MILITARY BOY WHO’S FIGHTAN FOR COUNTRY. Seriously, that transformation (which was off course off-screen) is so maudlin and predictable makes me want to vomit.

    I’d have some marginal respect for Batiuk if he depicted Cory as, while having more of his impulses under control, as still ultimately carrying a lot of free-floating resentment towards authority and expressing it with things like not shaving, continually butting up against the line with some NJP, watching his buddies get promoted ahead of him, etc.

    Also: Summer used to be a lot better drawn back then. I don’t know WTF happened. I mean, she actually used to look like a young woman back then rather than her current appearance of Adam Sandler with Liz Wilson’s haircut.

    Frank Bolton: The bizarre thing about Cory is that when he returned home with an ENTIRELY TRANSFORMED personality, no one seemed to notice or had anything to say about it. It’d be like if Summer came home from KSU sporting wavy blonde hair, a belly button ring, a lower back tattoo and a skimpy new wardrobe. The kid comes home and he’s all ramrod straight with the “yes ma’am” and “no ma’am” and everyone just shrugs, like they didn’t even notice. How could they not?
