|IT'S REALLY HERE FOLKS; CRACK MASTER! (Added 24 Dec '13)|
WOW, just WOW. During the Christmas rush, I shamefully neglected to check my emails for a few days. So, when I happened to check them today, I was naturally shocked to find an email from December 21 simply titled "Crack Master", with a 23 MB .mov file attached, as sent through an anonymous emailing service. Immediately my heart rate shot through the roof, and I tried to calm myself down, in the event that it was a fake or a hoax. To my utter delight though, it was indeed the real deal. To the anonymous emailer who sent me the clip, if you're reading this, THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH, from the bottom of my heart; this is without a doubt the best Christmas present I have ever received, bar none!!! P.S. Our suspicions were correct, it IS called Cracks.
|THE REMAINING UNRESURFACED EPISODES OF THE POPCORN KID HAVE BEEN FOUND! (Added 11 Dec '13)|
I guess it must just be that time of year, because yet another discovery has slipped us by! The two remaining unresurfaced episodes (ie. episodes 2 and 5) of The Popcorn Kid were uploaded to YouTube by mantronix4ever, on September 20th and 21st of this year, respectively.
|25 MINUTES OF TIM BURTON'S HANSEL AND GRETEL HAS BEEN MADE AVAILABLE ONLINE! (Added 08 Nov '13)|
While we're on the topic of late notices, here is one that we just plain forgot to create a notice board post for (sorry). For anyone who didn't see the recordings themselves, or hasn't heard of their recent leaking, three bootleg excerpts from Tim Burton's highly sought-after Hansel and Gretel were uploaded on the 18th of October, courtesy of YouTube user tapio1985 (the same user responsible for recording and uploading the intro to the film some time back), totalling almost 25 minutes!
|MICKEY MOUSE WORKS "MINNIE TAKES CARE OF PLUTO" ENGLISH DUB FOUND! (Added 08 Nov '13)|
Well, wouldn't you know it, another piece of unearthed lost media has slipped us by, for almost a month this time! Our bad. Anyhow, on October 9th, a YouTube user by the name of bumbumdbear uploaded a camcorder recording of the rare English dub of "Minnie Takes Care of Pluto", the so-called "banned" episode of Mickey Mouse Works! The recording was apparently taken from a circa 2010 airing of the elusive episode, on Disney Channel Asia.
|[SPECIAL HALLOWEEN EVENT] PUPPET INTERNET PREMIERE... (Added 27 Oct '13)|
Aaaaand it's done.
|NINE PREVIOUSLY LOST EPISODES OF DOCTOR WHO FOUND IN NIGERIA; NOW AVAILABLE ON ITUNES! (Added 10 Oct '13)|
Rumours have been abundant over the past few days, regarding reports that two previously lost Doctor Who episodes had been found (supposedly taken from the rumoured haul of 100+ episodes allegedly found in Zambia earlier this year). Well, today the BBC have confirmed the exact details of the find: NINE episodes have been rediscovered - the remaining five "The Enemy of the World" episodes (ie. 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6), and four of the five missing "The Web of Fear" episodes (ie. 2, 4, 5 and 6) - all of which have since been made available for digital purchase on iTunes!
|A REDDITOR HAS REDISCOVERED A COPY OF ALL LIGHTS FUCKED ON THE HAIRY AMP DROOLING! (Added 15 Sep '13)|
So, if you've been following this whole saga over the past couple of days, (as many of us likely have been), you will be well aware that two tracks from Godspeed You! Black Emperor's All Lights Fucked on the Hairy Amp Drooling have recently been released by Reddit user casketjack, who rediscovered a copy of the tape in storage. Its validity has not yet been officially confirmed, but if it is a fake, it is extraordinarily well done (when comparing the photographs of the tape/booklet that casketjack has provided to the low resolution booklet scans that already existed online).
|BLACK ANGEL TO BE SCREENED AT THE 36TH MILL VALLEY FILM FESTIVAL! (Added 14 Sep '13)|
That's right, people; for the first time in over 33 years, Black Angel is finally being publicly screened again - on October 13th at the 36th Mill Valley Film Festival! Despite reports to the contrary, it has been officially confirmed that the restoration was actually done by Athena Studios, not Pixar. The above title screenshot was released for the event, and is the public's first glimpse at the digitally restored version of the legendary short film.
|NAMOWAL HAS RECEIVED AND UPLOADED A COPY OF JON ARMOND'S 2009 CRACK MASTER AUDIO DOCUMENTARY! (Added 22 Aug '13)|

|SEVERAL MINUTES OF FOOTAGE FROM THE DAY THE CLOWN CRIED HAVE SURFACED! (Added 22 Aug '13)|
After a brief stint in limbo, I'm back, and the first thing I have to bring everyone up to speed with (if you weren't already aware) is the fact that on August 10, Uncle Sporkums discovered and made it widely known that several minutes of footage from The Day the Clown Cried had surfaced online (the source being an old Dutch documentary on the film, said section of which only having found its way to the internet the day before).
|AN INTERESTING DEVLOPMENT; COSMO ANZILOTTI REPLIES... (Added 07 Aug '13)|
So there you have it... Cosmo Anzilotti did NOT create, nor did he even work on (at least, not that he can recall) Crack Master. Not exactly the news we were hoping for, but at least now we can rule him out as the creator.
|THE LOST MEDIA WIKI NEEDS YOUR HELP! (Added 06 Jul '13)|
Hi all! Shortly, I am going to be personally writing to Cosmo Anzilotti regarding the Crack Master video; with any luck, he will be able to provide us with a copy. However, I have also begun an online petition, which I think, if provided to Anzilotti with said letter, would drastically increase our chances of securing a copy.
|THE ORIGINAL 1989 U.F.O. ABDUCTION AKA THE MCPHERSON TAPE HAS BEEN FOUND! (Added 01 Jul '13)|

|THE WILD THORNBERRYS PILOT EPISODE HAS BEEN FOUND! (Added 11 May '13)|
On the 11th of May, 2013, YouTube user jeffdadude87 (who had previously recorded the entire Big Help-a-thon 5) kindly uploaded a bootleg copy of the episode on our request (but only for a limited time). Thanks jeff!
|MICKEY MOUSE IN VIETNAM HAS BEEN FOUND! (Added 10 May '13)|
On April 22, 2013, Mickey Mouse in Vietnam was silently uploaded to YouTube with System of a Down's "Soldier Side (Intro)" dubbed over the top of it. The upload went largely unnoticed for almost three weeks, and as such, many people were shocked to suddenly be seeing it when the word spread. On that note, we'd like to give a big thanks to abadhiggins for finally unearthing this rarity!
|ATTACK OF THE GIANT VULTURE HAS BEEN FOUND! (Added 23 Feb '13)|
Following the (rather unsuccessful) Paley Center screening, snowpeck over at myspleen.org has uploaded a VHS rip of the ENTIRE First Ever Short Films by Short People Film Festival (including, of course, the infamous Attack of the Giant Vulture)! HUGE amount of thanks to snowpeck, this is the best, most comprehensive copy we could have possibly hoped for, and we're incredibly grateful for the share.
|ADULT SWIM HAVE RELEASED DEXTER'S RUDE REMOVAL! (Added 22 Jan '13)|
