2015 notice board posts (post-move)
|UPDATE 2.21! (Added 25 Dec 2015)|
Hello and Merry Christmas Lost Media seekers!
Got a brand new Lost Media Chronicles for you guys. This round I cover a musical I watch every Christmas, RENT. Making its debut in 1996, the musical became massively popular, but no known video recordings in high quality with the original cast are known to exist. Also be sure to keep your eyes out for the next 2Beats+. We got our season finale coming soon. Finally, we got our Live Music Month going on still. Be sure to check that series out!
Thanks guys and have a wonderful holiday season!

|UPDATE 2.20! (Added 8 Dec 2015)|
A fresh batch of found media has made its way online, just in time for Christmas; let's take a look!
- First up, the Moxy Show world premiere VHS tape that showed up on eBay a few weeks back has been ripped by the auction winner, Kyle Ruhe, who has graciously provided us with a copy! I've since uploaded the tape's contents to Vimeo, which you can view above (direct, uncompressed download link coming soon). Thanks again Kyle!
- Secondly, Bolivar el Heroe has been found! The infamously bad Colombian animated film was uploaded a few days back by YouTuber A. Ariza (and it's worth noting that it rivals Rapsittie Street Kids in terms of its cheesiness, so if you can speak Spanish and/or want a cheap laugh, go check it out). Thanks A. Ariza!
- Last but not least, Mark Marek, creator of KaBlam's Henry and June shorts has released 4 previously unattainable episodes on his website, via direct download (including Episode 29, KaFun and a higher quality rip of The Henry and June Show! Thanks Mark!
That'll do it for today's notice board post. Hope you guys all have a great holiday, catch you next time!
|UPDATE 2.19! (Added 26 Nov 2015)|
New update finally with some big news for you guys. First off, I apologize for my even bigger lack of activity than ever. I have a really nasty knee injury that's been halting video production and it's been hard on me. It's gonna take a few weeks to heal, but I'm alright.
As you guys know, the holidays are among us. So, that means a Christmas-themed episode of The Lost Media Chronicles coming up, based off of a musical I strongly associate with Christmas. I know I talk about the next subject being about video game stuff, but due to these rough times for me, I have to hold back. But keep an eye out for that new episode, hopefully before Christmas.
It is also my pleasure to announce that the Astrology With Squidward segment for Sagittarius has finally surfaced. Special thanks goes to YouTuber SpongeBrandedExtra for uncovering this.
As you see above, there is a new episode of Lost Media Chronicles posted above. This episode covers the partially lost music video for the Radiohead song "Let Down". Made in 1997, the video was briefly featured online before being removed, possibly by Thom Yorke itself, interrupting the download of the person who spread the file around. Be sure to also check out the 2 parts of 3 of Radiohead that we've covered for 2Beats+. We talk about some rare Radiohead media in those videos as well.
Also, keep your eyes open in December for a series of videos I'll be doing about the bands I've reviewed over the year in a live setting. They'll be short, but sweet. Since live shows are heavily sought after, you can bet I'll bring up some of the issues media seekers face with live shows.
Lastly, I want to thank all of you from the wiki. In tough times like this, I feel like throwing my hands up and quitting. But these videos and this wiki keep me going. I'm facing a potential job loss because of this knee injury, and you guys keep me from getting too depressed. I just wanted to let you guys know that you make it all worth it at the end of the day.
Happy Holidays, Lost Media seekers!

|UPDATE 2.18! (Added 15 Oct 2015)|
Greetings fellow lost media seekers!
First off, as a lot of you have read on the shoutbox, Dycaite is trying out a new Captcha system as a means of trying to prevent the spam articles from being made. We do apologize about the constant occurrence of that, and we're doing everything we can to stop it. I wish I was a bit more savvy on modding a site to stop such things from happening, but that is not my forte.
Now, onto the purpose of the Notice Board post. I finally have a brand new Lost Media Chronicles out, this time detailing the unreleased tracks done by British alternative rock band Coldplay. It's more about the nature of unreleased/ lost tracks done by bands, and how it affects the music industry. Also, be sure to check out our 2 part review of Coldplay's discography of 2Beats+ for a bit more context, if your heart so desires.
Also included is my Vlog review for the movie The Walk, which touches upon my obsession with the World Trade Center towers. In that video is also some details about some updates about the channel.
One more thing to close out this update. A bit of controversy has arisen surrounding the Christine Chubbuck video. There are viewers that are confusing the video as some sort of bait and switch, to trick them into thinking that the video contains the news broadcast (which isn't true, but you can't blame them for not knowing what my series does/ is about). If you choose to debate with these viewers, please do so respectfully. I've already had to remove the comments of a couple of rowdy LMW readers. I know for the most part here, we try to keep level-headed, but please do remember to be polite and don't add fuel to the fire. Some of the viewers bashing it are also well-known trolls from the old wiki, and we'd rather try to keep that fight as calm as we can.
Thanks for watching and I hope you guys all have a bright, happy day!

|UPDATE 2.17! (Added 28 Sep 2015)|
Some more really neat stuff has come to pass in the last couple of weeks, so let's dive straight into today's notice board post and check 'em out:
- Firstly (and most astonishingly), a copy of the ludicrously elusive 1975 Terrence Stamp film Hu-Man has been unearthed by Cinemageddon user Goupil66! While this copy is not in its original English dub, but rather a French one, subtitles have already been created by fellow CG'ers aloysius70 and corvusalbus and thus the film can now be enjoyed by both French and English audiences alike; huge thanks go to all involved, I have personally been wanting to see this one for some time now! Those without a Cinemageddon account can download the film here and the subtitles here.
- Secondly, the Li Cheng version of Terrifying 9.11 has been successfully dumped and uploaded by taizou at Handheld Underground! I know first-hand that dumping this cartridge was no easy feat, so big thanks to taizou for his efforts, they're much appreciated! Both the raw ROM dump and a fixed version can be obtained here.
- For those who missed my Shoutbox comment on the topic, I recently received my McDonaldland Loch VHS and have ripped and uploaded my version (in the highest possible quality and with proper stereo audio), obtainable here.
- More Moxy Show footage has been uncovered! LMW regular Thomas Paul Jennings made the discovery (via previously uploaded clips that slipped under the radar and that come courtesy of Frank Gresham) and has conveniently edited all currently available footage into a single video, viewable above. Thanks Thomas!
- And finally, another minute or so of original Robot Jones voice recordings have surfaced courtesy of Vimeo user Lincar Rox! Thanks Lincar!
That's about all for today's notice board post, though I'd just like to wrap it up by thanking everyone who came to hang out during Found Media Week from the 8th through to the 13th of September. I had a really great time organising it all and I hope you guys also enjoyed it :) For anyone who missed out though, fear not, for you can find a recap of the 6 found pieces of media released here.
Until next time,
|FOUND MEDIA WEEK - DAY 6: RAPSITTIE STREET KIDS: BELIEVE IN SANTA! (Added 13 Sep 2015)|
Well guys, here it is... The sour cream of the crop, the unholy grail of 3D animation, Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa.
I'm not gunna go into the specifics of how I managed to get my hands on this film, suffice to say that it was a rather unpleasant experience. However, that is all water under the bridge now and the film is finally here for all to enjoy (well, enjoy may be a bit of a stretch, but you know what I mean).
|DOWNLOAD RAPSITTIE STREET KIDS: BELIEVE IN SANTA|
I really don't have much more to say about this film that it doesn't already say for itself. Thanks to those involved in getting this movie out in the open, and I'm sorry we couldn't end things on more amicable terms; c'est la vie.
Have fun and be merry!
|FOUND MEDIA WEEK - DAY 5: FREAKY STORIES: PICKLED BRAINS! (Added 12 Sep 2015)|
Hey all; day 5 of the Found Media Week is upon us and with it comes more found animation!
Today's piece, I actually happened upon by pure chance, in my travels as a VHS collector. Freaky Stories: Pickled Brains is a 40-minute compilation of 8 Freaky Stories episodes, all of which were (at least, according to my fairly thorough research) previously unavailable, including the infamously creepy "I can lick too!" short (see 25:03).
|DOWNLOAD FREAKY STORIES: PICKLED BRAINS|
And with that, Found Media Week begins drawing to a close, but fear not! Tomorrow I have a piece for you that wholly embodies the spirit of giving, albeit in a very, shall we say, unique way ;)
On one last, much more serious note, I'd also like to point out that Randy has completed and uploaded a new (and very personal) episode of The Lost Media Chronicles, to commemorate the September 11 attacks; you can view it below:
That'll do it for today's notice board post.
See you all tomorrow!
|FOUND MEDIA WEEK - DAY 4: DARE, BLUFF, OR DIE! (Added 11 Sep 2015)|
Hey guys, how's it going? Today marks the 4th day of the Found Media Week and to bring it past the halfway mark, I have another previously lost video game, the elusive, Wild West themed Dare, Bluff, or Die.
Big thanks go to a kind source who wishes to remain anonymous for providing me with a copy of this game a little while back, complete with cover, disc and manual scans, all of which can be obtained via the link below:
|DOWNLOAD DARE, BLUFF, OR DIE|
I've had success running this game in DOSBox; to those unfamiliar with DOSBox, simply follow these steps:
1 - Download and install DOSBox
2 - Download Dare, Bluff, or Die and mount the image via DAEMON Tools (or similar)
3 - Open up DOSBox and type (without quotation marks) "mount c X:\ -t cdrom" (X:\ being the virtual drive to which the disc image was just mounted)
4 - Navigate to DOSBox's virtual C:\ drive and then run WILDWEST.BAT
And that's it! The game should run smoothly and with functional audio.
Righto guys, that brings day 4 of the Found Media Week to a close, but the week ain't over yet! Be sure to join me again tomorrow for more spoils!
See you then :)
|FOUND MEDIA WEEK - DAY 3: RUBBISH! (Added 10 Sep 2015)|
Hey everyone, dycaite here, back for day 3 of the Found Media Week; let's jump right in:
Some time back, I was lucky enough to temporarily get my hands on a VHS tape so rare that it came in a plain white slipcase and had a half handwritten label; that tape was none other than a dual release of Rubbish and The Puppet Pudding, both of which were made by The Marionette Theatre of Australia in the early 1980s. Needless to say, I seized the opportunity to rip the tape and am now posting it here in its entirety as today's piece of found media!
|DOWNLOAD RUBBISH/THE PUPPET PUDDING|
Big thanks to the kind folks that aided me in acquiring this elusive film, I couldn't have done it without your help!
Alright guys, that closes out another notice board post, but I'll be back around the same time tomorrow with another piece of found media for you all to enjoy!
Catch you then,
|FOUND MEDIA WEEK - DAY 2: LISA ENGLISH DUB! (Added 9 Sep 2015)|
Hey guys, dycaite here and I'm back with more Found Media Week spoils, this time of the animated variety.
Today's offering is the complete English dub (ie. all 13 episodes) of Swedish cartoon Lisa! I happened across a VHS release under the name Lisa's Space Adventure containing the dubbed episodes in their entirety a few months back, so here they now are for your viewing pleasure:
|DOWNLOAD LISA'S SPACE ADVENTURE|
Here's a tidy little episode guide I threw together:
0:00 - Lisa at the shopping Centre
6:02 - Holger with the big ears
12:05 - Lisa at the dentist
18:07 - Lisa goes on a picnic
24:10 - Lisa paints the bathroom
30:13 - Lisa's Space Adventure
36:15 - Scared of Loli
42:17 - Lisa gets a babysitter
47:57 - The Davidsons
53:59 - The dinner party
1:00:01 - The fancy dress party
1:06:03 - Waving club
1:12:06 - What am I going to be when I grow up
Oh! I almost forgot; as of early last month, Cuprinol have been uploading some of their old Aardman commercials to their official YouTube channel, some of which were previously lost. You can check out their playlist of ads here. Thanks to Cuprinol for the provision of said ads and to LMW regular Thomas Paul Jennings for the tip-off!
That's all from me today, but be sure to check in tomorrow for another Found Media Week reveal!
|FOUND MEDIA WEEK - DAY 1: IZZY'S ADVENTURE! (Added 8 Sep 2015)|
Let the Found Media Week begin!
The first cab off the ranks is Izzy's Adventure, a rare 1996 PC game featuring the Atlanta 1996 Summer Olympics mascot, Izzy.
This game had proven itself quite elusive, though it's been known to show up on eBay once in a blue moon (which, as it happens, is where I acquired my copy). You can find a MEGA download link to a .zip file below, containing both the disc image files and the box/disc/inlay scans:
|DOWNLOAD IZZY'S ADVENTURE|
I've personally managed to get the game running properly using a Windows XP virtual machine via VirtualBox on Windows 10; if your PC is already running XP, then you should be able to get it working natively without too much fuss. In any case, I recorded and uploaded a VirtualBox tutorial video, available here:
Enjoy, and be sure to check in again tomorrow for day 2 of the Found Media Week!
|MCDONALDLAND LOCH FOUND! // FOUND MEDIA WEEK BEGINS TOMORROW! // NEW LOST MEDIA CHRONICLES! (Added 7 Sep 2015)|
|LOST MEDIA CHRONICLES EPISODE 7 // A FEW NOTES (Added 30 Aug 2015)|
Hello ladies and gents. Shoegazer here with a brand new episode of Lost Media Chronicles. This time, Trey, my cohost from 2Beats+ is in to cover one of his childhood favorites, Thomas the Tank Engine.
|UPDATE 2.08! (Added 14 Aug 2015)|
Hey guys, dycaite here. Straight off the bat, I just wanted to explain my absence of late; I've been in the process of moving house for the better part of the last fortnight and am only now getting settled into my new place, hence the lack of updates and spam eradication (the latter of which I've since taken care of). So, yeah, thanks for bearing with me.
Aaaaand, just in case you missed them:
That oughta do it for now, though one last thing I wanna briefly mention before I close out this notice board post is that we are currently seeking a new staff member to help out with the site. If you're interested in volunteering for the position, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org, or through either of our social media pages.
|NEW LOST MEDIA CHRONICLES IS UP! (Added 01 Aug 2015)|
Hi there, guys! RandyTheShoegazer here. I have the new episode on The Lost Media Chronicles up. This episode is about the banned "Director's Cut" of Kylie Minogue's "On a Night Like This". Keep in mind that this video features censored nudity, so viewer discretion is advised.
