2017 notice board posts
|UPDATE 2.64! (Added 28 Jun 2017)|
How's it going guys, dycaite here back with another tantalising notice board post for everyone to sink their teeth into. It's another long'un too, so let's get straight into it!
- The 1970 Sesame Street "Windy" skit has been found! While it may not be in its original English dub (but rather a Spanish dub), it's still really cool to see this one surface. Big thanks to YouTuber VINTAGE TV for the provision of the clip (which was included in a complete Spanish episode they uploaded a few days back), and to PumpkinJFriend for isolating and mirroring the clip, as seen above!
- AND, on the topic of lost-to-found Sesame Street content, the 1982 "Handful of Crumbs" skit has also been unearthed! Although, as you might have gathered, the only complete copy of this skit is one that is dubbed in Spanish (for the time being at least), though it is still very cool to see these things surfacing, regardless of the language. Big thanks to YouTuber Ferdasyn 80 for providing the episode and, once again to PumpkinJFriend for isolating and mirroring the footage; check it out! Additionally, PumpkinJFriend has spliced together a partially English version by sourcing the song itself from a Sesame Street compilation album; it can be found here.
- Next up, an episode of Jim and Judy in Teleland has been unearthed! This marks the first time an episode from this show has been recovered and oddly enough, it takes place in Australia :D Big thanks to YouTuber Char Char for not only providing the episode, but also giving the LMW a shout-out in the video's description; appreciate it buddy! You can see episode 8 of Jim and Judy in Teleland for yourself via the above embed!
- More JBVO footage has come to light! This new footage comes by way of an entire episode's worth of host segments/commercials, courtesy of YouTuber and LMW contributor Captain B. Zarre, as well as a complete episode from Tumblr user thepurebreadgoat, both of which can be seen above; thanks guys!
- The once-lost original English dub of the Woody Woodpecker episode "Woody and the Beanstalk" has been found! Big thanks go to C4N4L 78, who was kind enough to email us the episode out of the blue; much appreciated! The episode can be seen above (or, if you prefer, the uncompressed source file can be found here), via the LMW Vimeo channel, or you can find a custom version with titles edited in here, courtesy of LMW contributor Ultimate19th!
- One of the animated McDonalds "YumChum" ads have been found! This comes via a bootleg recording of a block of Nick Jr. ads courtesy of YouTuber Nadoue Guerrier; the compilation video can be seen above (and the ad in question can be found at the 2:40 mark). Thanks Nadoue!
- LMW contributor ellescuba has managed to modify the trial version of Bowl-Ed Over to remove the time limit! It's still unclear if the only difference between the trial version and the full purchased version was the time limit, but in any case, a stellar effort on ellescuba's part! The modified game files can be obtained here!
- DVDRips of the entire first season of The Secret Show have been made available! This marks the first time these episodes have been available in DVD quality, and come courtesy of LMW contributor MK Inst, who, after managing to acquire said DVDs, was kind enough to mirror them for us, available here; thanks MK Inst!
Aaaaand finally, in some "here are a few things we missed" news (hey, we're only human ^_^'):
- Roughly 6 hours of additional Pinwheel footage that was uploaded by Dailymotion user WackyJacky back in 2011 has come to our attention; thanks to WackyJacky for having provided these episodes and a special shout out to our very own RSTVideo for bringing their presence to everyone's attention! The first hour or so of WackyJacky's uploads can be found here!
- 9 episodes of 1950s/60s series of Felix the Cat that were previously presumed lost have been brought to light, having been originally uploaded some years ago! The episodes in question, "Chief Standing Bull", "Out West with Big Brownie", "The Capturing of the Leprechaun King", "The Leprechaun", The Leprechaun's Gold, "Luring the Magic Bag of Tricks", "Felix Out West", "Mercury's Winged Sandals" and "Brother Pebble Bottom" can be found by clicking on their respective titles (please note that the latter two are in Russian); thanks to the respective uploaders and to LMW contributors Ultimate19th and Dark Timur for pointing them out to us!
That's gunna do it for now, take it easy guys and to everybody else getting the Crash N Sane Trilogy in 2 days time - ENJOY! I know I will (not that that has to do with anything, but I'M EXCITED)! :D
|UPDATE 2.63! (Added 11 June 2017)|
Hello there, duderinos and dudettes, Shoegazer here doing the noticeboard this time. It's been another busy month, but surprisingly there wasn't much media found. Just one thing:
- KingDrewski9000 uncovered a rare VHS recording of Cap'n O.G. Readmore's Jack and the Beanstalk. It aired very rarely on ABC from 1985 to 1997, and amazingly the uploader's mother is the one who recorded it. Thank you, KingDrewski9000, for unearthing this gem!
I, the Shoegazer, have also made, not 1, not 2, but 3 new LMC's since the last update! I finished up my video game month 2017 already. The topics are:
- The Earthbound/ Mother games, including details on the formerly lost English translation/ localization of Mother 1 and the ever elusive Earthbound/ Mother 64. These games were a cornerstone in Nintendo's history, being RPGs featuring a modern setting. It's had a shaky history with troubled productions and cancelled games.
- "The First Hardcore Erotic Game In The World". Not really the first, but an interesting topic on a game with a dubious claim. (Should go without saying: NSFW)
- The super popular 3-D Groove Games. Which I'm sure don't need much introduction.
Finally, I'd like to openly announce that the wiki is now hosting events on the Discord, so if you haven't joined already, what are you, insane? Get your happy whippersnapper face right on over to the Discord and join. On Friday nights, we're doing Lost Media group chat followed by Film Night. On Saturdays we're doing music night, hosted by yours truly. These start at 7 PM Central Time on Fridays and 9 PM Central Time on Saturdays. Come and bond with your fellow Lost Media community members.
That about does it, see you guys later!
|UPDATE 2.62! (Added 18 May 2017)|
What's up guys dycaite here and with a new month comes a new notice board post -- and, personal apologies from myself for the delay, I intended for this post to be up a few days ago but things came up... Anyway, it's here now, so let's get into it!
- Randy has released two new episodes of the Lost Media Chronicles! This time he tackles two heavily requested topics, Nickelodeon's Pinwheel (including, of course, the lost Clock Man short) and, for the first entry in LMC's video game month, the lost games for Nintendo's short lived Virtual Boy; check them both out above!
- We have brought on a new admin! Please welcome Matt (aka thisishowibro) in his new role :)
- Two episodes of Binyah Binyah have been discovered via a home recording on eBay! Big thanks to DJ Bob and CDCB for the acquisition of these rarities (ie. episodes 4 and 5); episode 4 has been ripped and released by CDCB and can be seen above via Google Drive (episode 5 should also be online before too long); thanks again guys!
- 5 seconds of footage from the JBVO Dragon Ball Z episode has been found by YouTuber Captain B. Zarre! 5 seconds may not seem like much, but it's certainly better than nothing (it's also the first footage of the episode to have surfaced since its airing). You can catch the footage above; thanks Captain B. Zarre!
- More footage from the 1986 animated series Mr. Roger (not to be confused with Fred "Mr. Rogers" Rogers) has come to light! The ~30 seconds of footage (or one and a half episodes) was bootleg recorded and provided by, once again, CDCB and can be seen via two videos above; thanks again CDCB!
- The music video for The Honeyrods' "Love Bee" has been located! An anonymous LMW user found said video in a home recorded episode of MTV's 120 Minutes, that was found on a Russian website. The clip in question has since been mirrored to YouTube and can be seen above, courtesy of Nott Joey. Thanks guys!
- A collection of storyboards from the first episode of the unproduced animated series Yo! It's the Chester Cheetah Show (the episode in question titled "Stir Crazy Cat") have shown up online via an eBay auction! Images from the original auction page (which is no longer available) were archived by an anonymous 4chan user on the /co/ board, and said images have been mirrored to imgur, here. Thanks to the anonymous /co/ user for both bringing these images to our attention and for preserving them!
- And finally, in case you still aren't feeling the love after all of that, our good friend Jerry the Sockgazer has prepared a very special video for you all; enjoy.
That's it for now, this has been Radio Caite on 691.2, tune in next time; peace!
|UPDATE 2.61! (Added 17 Apr 2017)|
What's up guys, dycaite here -- and, first and foremost, I'd just like to wish everybody a safe and Happy Easter! That said, let's get straight into today's notice board post, which, as you'll no doubt have noticed, is quite the lengthy one; buckle up, buckaroos!
- As you will likely recall, a few weeks back, the first two episodes of the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood "Conflict" arc found their way online. Now, thanks to MySpleen user Snowpeck, all 5 episodes have been made available! The episodes in question (plus higher quality rips of the first two) can be found on the aforementioned private torrent tracker, MySpleen. As per Snowpeck's request that the episodes not be mirrored elsewhere, we won't be sharing any mirrored links; if you'd like a copy of these episodes and do not have a MySpleen account, myself, plus a handful of other generous users on the Discord have banded together to give out invites; you need only ask for one (and - quick heads up - it's freeleech for the next 24 or so hours, so you may just wanna do it sooner rather than later). Huge thanks to Snowpeck for recovering and sharing these episodes, truly a valiant effort and to be highly commended!
- A new episode of the Lost Media Chronicles has been released! On this highly-requested episode, Randy covers the elusive 1973 series of Doraemon; check it out above!
- More Pinwheel has come to light! MySpleen user retroccn uploaded not one, but two torrents, each containing partial recordings of Pinwheel episodes (amounting to about an hour of Pinwheel footage in total; thanks retroccn!
Speaking of Pinwheel, three videos were recently discovered to have been uploaded to YouTube late last year, courtesy of Jon QUBE (from the interactive TV station QUBE, who used to air the series), totalling an impressive two and a half hours of Pinwheel footage! The videos in question can be seen above; thanks Jon!
And, before anybody asks - no, sadly Clock Man is nowhere in there. That doesn't mean I'm going to stop searching though ;)
- We have a new staff member, RSTVideo! Please make her feel welcome and wish her luck in her new role - though, I know she'll do great :)
- Nickelodeon Magazine's Big 10 Birthday Bash has been found! The half hour TV special was uncovered and uploaded by LMW contributor SpooferJahk and can be seen above (or downloaded in uncompressed form here)! Thanks SpooferJahk!
- Ray Chase, who worked in the animation department of the 2001 Jimmy Neutron movie has recently released the "winning" animation that would have been used had the film won at the 2001 Oscars! The until-now unseen piece of animation can be viewed above; thanks Ray!
And on the topic of Jimmy Neutron, a high resolution scan of a magazine article on the Johnny Quasar pilot has been provided by Redditor siliconclassics, featuring several high res screenshots from the short; it can be found here. Thanks siliconclassics!
- Ben from the Oddity Archive has uncovered and released a a rare 1965 audio recording of a Teleguide broadcast! Teleguide, a CCTV system used across hotels in New York in the 1960s, gave viewers information such as news, weather and other various tourist info. The hour or so of recovered audio can be heard above (and, if you'd like to hear more about the find, a haul video here discusses its discovery). Truly a fascinating piece, thanks to Ben for making this publicly available!
- ALSO(!), in case you missed it, a higher quality rip of the Spanish dub of Cracks has been provided by original uploader AT Productions! Thanks once again to AT Productions for getting this out to the masses and in high quality, nonetheless! I'd have embedded it above, but things are getting a little crowded up there, so I'll just link it here; take a look!
- And on a final, much more serious note (and a very important one, at that), Randy has put out a new v-log, discussing the wiki's recently implemented rule changes, as well as addressing some of the burning issues the site/community has been facing lately. Please do give it a watch, it really is important; you can do so via the above embed.
That's gunna do it for now, take it easy guys; peace!
|UPDATE 2.60! (Added 28 Mar 2017; Updated 31 Mar 2017)|
Hey everyone, dycaite here with the third notice board post for the month of March; it's always nice to have a busy news month for lost media! Here we go:
- Two of the five Mister Rogers' Neighborhood "Conflict" episodes have been found! Episodes 1521 and 1522 (ie. the first two episodes of the "Conflict" arc) were uploaded a little over a week ago by YouTuber TROG SLEEP NOW, although said uploads have now been taken down due to a copyright claim; fear not though, because several people (myself included) have made backups of the episodes and LMW contributor ApolloJustice has also made a YouTube mirror (of the two episodes in a single video), which can be viewed above; original webm backups can be found here.
Since the unearthing of these episodes, some... interesting (to say the least) articles have sprung up, theorising that their resurgence was a possible "warning" of sorts to Donald Trump. As an Australian, I'll let you guys in the US decide for yourselves if there is any merit to these but from an outsider's perspective it seems like a pretty far-fetched thing to suggest... In any case, massive thanks to TROG SLEEP NOW for the provision and preservation of these TV relics and to blameitonjorge for tweeting about their recovery (which is how I first learned that they had been put online); here's hoping the remaining three surface some day!
P.S. Speaking of blameitonjorge, he recently uploaded a new lost media update video (in which the aforementioned Mister Rogers episodes are addressed), that can be seen above! Thanks to jorge for once again giving the site (and the site's Patreon) a shout out; I'm only too happy to return the favour :)
- The PC version of Plumber's Don't Wear Ties has been found! This rare version of the critically and commercially panned 1994 adult visual novel was found at Ball State University's library by YouTuber psychoticgiraffe, who subsequently ripped the game and has made it publicly available for download! The game's unearthing went on to catch the attention of the folks at PC Gamer, one of whom recently gave it's rediscovery a write-up! Big thanks to psychoticgiraffe for making this rarity available to all budding "bad PC game" enthusiasts and lost media enthusiasts alike, and to PC Gamer for giving the LMW a mention - much appreciated!
- Two episodes of Hippo Tub Co. have been unearthed by LMW contributor CDCB2! The episodes, "Finders Keepers; Singin' in the Drain" and "Norton's Turn; Am I Blue?" can be directly downloaded here, or can be streamed via the above link; Thanks to CBCB2 for unearthing these episodes, and a special shout out once again to ApolloJustice for providing a YouTube mirror!
- And if that all wasn't enough to sink your teeth into, Randy has released not one but TWO episodes of the Lost Media Chronicles! This time he covers The Velvet Underground Live Footage and Walt Disney's Oswald The Lucky Rabbit; check them out above!
That's it for now - stay gold, people!
|UPDATE 2.59! (Added 19 Mar 2017)|
¿Que pasa chicos, dycaite aqui con otro tablin de anuncios publicar este fin de marzo! Vamos a entrar en ella!
- The Spanish dub of Cracks has been found! Sourced from a VHS release of Plaza Sesamo (specifically, the tape "F n.8: La Salud es Primero" - to think, that all this time, the short was actually present on a commercial VHS release; who'd have thought?), a bootleg recording of the short was uploaded to YouTube several days ago by AT Productions (aka Patriot712, here at the wiki). It's so great to see this come to light, my only hope now is that a higher quality version surfaces! In any case, BIG thanks to Patriot712 for the provision of this rarity!
- The Other Side of the Wind is to be completed and released! Famously regarded as Orson Welles' final film, the unfinished piece has officially been picked up by Netflix, who will complete the production and distribute the film! This is great news for film buffs and lost media enthusiasts alike and it's really nice to see companies like Netflix take up a project such as this; bravo!
- A higher quality version of A Hard Day's Day has been found! A rip of the short, fictional romp through a day in the life of a Beatles cover band was acquired by Adrian Ramirez (originally obtained via the director's website, on which it is no longer available), who has kindly passed said rip onto us; you can catch it above via our Vimeo channel. Thanks Adrian!
Eso lo hara por ahora, hasta la proxima vez!
|NEW LMC! // PRIMAL RAGE II NOW PLAYABLE IN MAME! (Added 13 Mar 2017)|
Hey guys, dycaite here with a couple of new goings-on in the world of lost media!
- First up, Randy has released a new episode of the Lost Media Chronicles! This time (in a series first), he covers a lost comic book - specifically, the lost 1933 Superman comic (as well as several instances of lost concept art). Check it out above!
- Secondly, Primal Rage II is now playable in MAME! The cracking of the game, an effort years in the making, was finally accomplished by Gruntzilla94, who developed a modified version of MAME called MAME4RAGE2 (specifically for running the elusive game), which can be found here, along with the ROM itself. While buggy at times, reports say that the game is largely playable and for that, Gruntzilla94, we thank and congratulate you!
That's it for today, take it easy folks!
|UPDATE 2.57! (Added 25 Feb 2017)|
What's up guys, I'm dycaite, back with another exciting notice board post! You all know the drill by now, so let's get straight into it (and get comfortable, it's a pretty big one):
- The highly sought-after 1955 Jean-Luc Godard short Une Femme Coquette has (remarkably) surfaced! Godard's first attempt at a narrative-driven film (and what is considered to be the single rarest piece in his entire filmography), the 9-minute Une Femme Coquette was uploaded to YouTube a little over a week ago by YouTuber David Heslin and was reported on two days after by The A. V. Club's Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (which is how we came to learn of the film's unearthing). Huge thanks to both David Heslin for the provision of the film and to Ignatiy Vishnevetsky for making it's presence known! Special thanks also go to Randy for bringing this to my attention, personally. See it for yourself above.
- Randy has released a new Lost Media Chronicles episode! This time he covers the now-infamous 70s exploitation film Him, a pornographic, homosexual film about Jesus (yes, you read that correctly; NSFW warning should go without saying). Catch it via the above link!
- TheGamerFromMars has released a new Internet Mysteries episode, co-written by our own BedHead Bernie, on the once-lost Nickelodeon horror film Cry Baby Lane; check it out above (especially if you're unfamiliar with the story, it's definitely one of the most interesting lost-to-found stories out there)!
- Several lost scenes from the original Ghostbusters have been located! The discovery was made known when Ghost Corps, a production company run by Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd (amongst others) put a photo on Facebook showing the three recently found reels (seen above) While at least one of the reels is believed to contain footage that has already come to light (via DVD releases and the like), there is ONE legendary, never-before-seen clip known as "Fort Detmerring Ghost", a scene depicting a sexual encounter between Ray Stantz and a ghost woman (and given the "Fort Detmerring" label on the reel, it's very likely the scene in question is contained within). Here's hoping this holy grail of lost Ghosbusters media is made publicly available soon, not to mention any other hidden gems that might be on those reels!
- Keep Off My Grass! has received a DVD release! As of late November of last year, the film has been available on DVD from Amazon, rendering it available on a large scale and therefore found; thanks go to those involved in the release of said DVD and to Reynard for bringing it to our attention!
- Spanish copies of the Phineas and Ferb "Spot The Diff" episodes have been found! All four episodes can be streamed here; thanks to those involved in getting these episodes out and to BrotherBroCountry for the tipoff!
- And finally, on a more sombre note, more proof of the "leaked" Chubbuck tape's illegitimacy has come to light, this time courtesy of Lin, the production manager at WXLT at the time (via the aforementioned news director Gordon Galbraith). Lin reiterated that, while copies of the tape were indeed made (but later destroyed), he confirmed that the angle on the real video simply does not match the angle seen in NationSquid's recreation (and yes, there is only ONE recorded angle of this incident). I decided to post a note on this followup as there are still a handful of people out there claiming this to be real, but frankly, I think we have enough evidence now to call this one case closed. My sincere and heartfelt thanks go out to Gordon for not only being willing to discuss this sensitive topic with me, but also for getting in touch with Lin to help disprove the fake, I truly appreciate it; all the best.
That's all for now; catch you guys next time!
|CHUBBUCK "LEAK" CONFIRMED FAKE (Added 14 Feb 2017)|
Hey guys, dycaite here.
So, as a lot of you are probably aware (from either the forums, the shoutbox or the Discord), there has been a lot of buzz recently about a supposed leak of the Christine Chubbuck tape that turned up in a Top 5 video on YouTube (the video in question can be found here). I avoided reporting on this in any official manner until such a time as some concrete proof of either its legitimacy or, more likely, it's illegitimacy had come to light (unlike some so-called "news" outlets, who practically touted it as hard fact), but I can now confirm that the clip is indeed a fake, nothing more than a well done re-enactment.
The clip was confirmed fake a couple of days back by Gordon Galbraith, news director of WXLT at the time, who posted a Facebook message outlining the reasons for the tape being fake, a screenshot of which can be found here.
Randy has also done a short V-Log on the tape and its newly proven illegitimacy, which can be seen above.
So, that's that; case closed. This leaves us with the conclusion that the clip was faked purely for publicity reasons and while I don't necessarily want to incite condemnation of NationSquid, I think most of you would agree that it's a pretty unsavoury thing to have done; here's hoping he finally does the right thing and comes clean about it now instead of carrying on the charade.
Take it easy guys.
|UPDATE 2.55! (Added 02 Feb 2017)|
Gooood evening, dycaite here, back with another notice board post this fine February; keeping the intros short this time, so here we go!
- A new episode of the Lost Media Chronicles has been released! This time Randy covers the Dawn Brancheau death footage, as well as other lost media relating to Tilikum the whale, who died early last month. Another great episode, check it out above! Also, it should go without saying, but this episode covers some NFSL subject matter - you have been warned.
- The once-lost 1924 silent film Three Days to Live (one of the earliest known films from iconic actor Frank Capra's filmography) has been restored by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia and will be premiering at Canberra's Arc Cinema on February 5th! I really wish I were able to attend myself, but Canberra is quite a ways out from me and would be a trip that I simply can't afford at this time, but I highly encourage any fellows Aussies in or around Canberra to go, especially given as it's the final release from the NFSA Restores initiative; big thanks to the NFSA for restoring and bringing this film back into the public viewing arena, and for reaching out to us about the upcoming screening!
- The English version of Terrifying 9.11 has been dumped and released online! Big thanks go to Ryan Silberman for the acquisition of the cart (and custom trailer, seen above) and to taizou at Handheld Underground for another fantastic rom dump, now available here!
- Another large collection of Chris Farley era Shrek concept art/production materials has been unearthed! The images, found on auction/item valuing website WorthPoint and can be viewed via this thread on the LMW forums! Thanks once again to unclesporkums for the heads up!
That's all for now, 'til next time!
-dycaite (really has to stop using so many exclamation marks!)
|UPDATE 2.54! (Added 21 Jan 2017)|
What's up everyone, dycaite here with a new notice board post to kick off the new year and what better way to do so than with some found media and updates, am I right? Damn right I am :P Let's get into it:
- The remaining 8 missing episodes of Little Shop have all been found and uploaded to YouTube! This renders the series now fully found and in its English dub, no less (with the exception of episode 9, which is only available in German). Big thanks go to The Little Shop Archive for unearthing the missing episodes, the first of which can be seen above!
- Christine, the second half of the Christine Chubbuck Sundance "duology" has been released on iTunes! Without wanting to go on too much of a ramble here, this is an absolutely phenomenal film and I wholeheartedly recommend it, not just to those fascinated by the story of Christine, but to film buffs of all kinds. It really is remarkable viewing and will most definitely end up on my top films of 2017, likely in the number one spot. Need I say more? Check it out here, you won't regret it.
- All 52 episodes of My Life Me have been found in their English dub! Huge thanks go to Mellow Margarine for tracking down, ripping and supplying me with the episodes and to Pan-Pizza for putting him in contact with me; you can enjoy(?) all of the episodes above, via our Vimeo channel!
- Randy has released a new episode of the Lost Media Chronicles! This one is a crossover with Randy's new series Adventures in Vinyl Land, for reasons that will become apparent when watching the episode; another great instalment, check it out above! One more quick note: for those of you who were asking about the missing Jeff Buckley LMC episode, we are happy to report that it is now available once again! You can catch it here. Thanks Randy!
- Bunyan and Babe has been released! Not only has this film been released after having spent years in development hell, it has been put out on Google Play completely free of charge! Big thanks to everyone involved in getting this film out in the open and for free, no less; we commend you!
- More footage from Mess O' Blues (the prototype Johnny Bravo short) has surfaced! The footage comes courtesy of YoshiKiller2S and was sourced from a short documentary included on a Johnny Bravo Season 1 DVD release. The 5 minute documentary can be seen above; thanks Yoshi!
- Several clips from The Dream of Hamish Mose have been released! This comes off the back of news that a release of the film may indeed be coming in the future, but that there is still a lot to sort out beforehand; here's hoping it happens. Big thanks to Films Around the World (who currently possess the master reels) for releasing these clips and to Uncle Sporkums for bringing them to our attention! You can watch the two clips yourself via the above links.
That ought'a do it for now. Until next time, goodnight, and keep watching the skies!
