Hey everybody, dycaite here with a new notice board post for a new month! Hope everyone's 2019 is shaping up to be a good year :) Whatever you've all been up to, let's put some icing on that March 2019 cake with some lost media news:

  • First off, just in case you've been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, The Wire has arrived! I probably should have posted about it here in the notice board section earlier, but what with the amount of visitors to the Discord and Forums lately, I figure most of you are probably already aware that it has been released by now... ANYWAY~ If you haven't already, you can catch The Wire right now via the above embed (or, for the connoisseurs among you, you can grab a copy of the 7GB raw video file here); big, big thanks once again to Aaron Augenblick and everyone at Augenblick Studios for making this happen!
  • Next up, we have two collaborator videos, one from LSuperSonicQ on the aforementioned The Wire (a great way to catch up if you're not familiar with how the search unfolded) and one from blameitonjorge on Ratafak Plachta. Thanks for another solid set of videos, guys (and sorry for not posting them here earlier)!
  • Aaand finally, as you may have guessed from the title, we have another "stuff we missed" update for you guys (including the recently unearthed 1996 Aeon Flux PlayStation prototype) - but instead of posting a long list here on the homepage, I thought it'd make more sense to create a forum post on it and then link that post here, so that is exactly what I have done and you can read about all the stuff we missed over the past few months right here. Thanks to Ryanskip for keeping track of the found media listed!

That's gunna do it for now; until next time, take it easy all! ✌

UPDATE 3.09: THE WIRE IS COMING! + SESAME STREET ARCHIVAL! (Added 15 Feb 2019)



How's it going guys, dycaite here with a short (but very exciting!) notice board post; let's get right into it:

  • If you've been perusing the LMW Forums and/or Discord lately, you will no doubt be familiar with the "Plugman" search that kicked off some weeks ago. The 1996 short, which has since been identified as The Wire (as shown in said year on Cartoon Network as a part of ToonHeads' "A Night of Independent Animation") has been recovered via VHS by creator Aaron Augenblick's Augenblick Studios, who have pledged to rip and upload the short! Big thanks to Aaron Augenblick and everybody at Augenblick Studios for helping us unearth this highly sought after animation! It's always such a pleasant surprise when studios/companies themselves come forward with lost media, it's really quite inspiring to know that our efforts are having a wide enough reach so as to come to the attention of creators themselves. Thanks again, all!
  • Big story number two (you're gunna wanna pay attention to this one if you're a fan of Sesame Street) - The American Archive of Public Broadcasting are currently undergoing an effort to archive nearly 4500 episodes, from the first 49 seasons (as donated by Sesame Workshop) and will be making them available for public viewing on location! The big question on everybody's lips now is whether or not this archive will include the infamous "Wicked Witch of the West" episode, or perhaps even the unaired "Snuffy's Parents Get a Divorce" one; while all we can really do is hope at this point, regardless of whether or not either of these episodes are included, this is undeniably a noble effort on the part of both the AAPB and Sesame Workshop and one to be highly commended.

That's all for today, keep an eye on the Forums, Discord, social media and such (and of course here on the notice board) for the inevitable release of The Wire, I know many of you are anticipating it with a lot of excitement :) Ciao!
