Egg On Your Face: The Yolk's On You

I like to think all the work I've put into this place over the years has made it fairly successful. It's been a pretty great learning experience for me in a number of ways.

Well, if you came here April 1st, 2010, you witnessed something that I would probably consider a colossal failure. Instead of my usual run-of-the-mill April Fools' joke I went with something slightly more ambitious.

Instead some people saw it and nobody really got very far, and zero people completed it. This is mainly because I failed to communicate exactly what was going on, or provide any real context for the game. In memory of this wondrous event, and as a way of adding more content to the ol' Five Years o' Mantis Eyes, I wrote a postmortem of the whole ordeal. Some of it may be boring (there are charts), but if you don't really care much about that, there's also juicy blasts from the past in the form of my less ambitious but better executed April Fools' jokes. It's like a history lesson! Enjoy!

I think you should open it up again, for people who didn't go through with it for one reason or another. Yes, all the answers are here but it'd still be interesting to go through to the end.

I'm sorry it didn't quite work out, Mike. It seemed like a great idea, and your summary seems really accurate as to why it didn't work out.

I have to say that while I think the e-mail confirmation thing was an engaging choice, it was overall not a good idea because I'm frankly pretty adverse to those kinds of things. I submitted my information and then immediately checked my email for my login and password. When my inbox was empty, I refreshed several times before just giving up and doing something else. I only went on to take tests one and two (which I failed) in the afternoon of April 2nd. So, maybe it would have worked out if the email distribution had been completely automatic?

Yeah it originally was but I went with batch sending to make it seem more mysterious or something. You make an interesting point for sure though.

It's a month old but there's not much news here for two years at a time, so whatever :) https://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/the-venture-bros/281421/the-venture-bros-season-8-jackson-publick-doc-hammer

Okay, Venturoos. Here's what ya get for the Extras, at least on the DVD version. I felt it was a little light, but that's just my opinion. Deleted Scenes (as always) - Some are B&W sketches with the dialog, others are animated with the dialog. Ghost in the Pro-Blem - An extended view of the distorted images of events from the Pro-BLEM's point of view. Maybe there are some clues hidden in it if you like frame-by-frame advancing. Maybe not. Sirena Goes Off... - Cristin Milioti ad-libbing way more dialog than the script calls for. Poor Rocco. Promo - Basically the season 7 promo. Maybe there's Easter Eggs to find. I haven't done any extensive searching yet. If anyone finds any feel free to post them here!

I haven't seen a press release yet, but people on reddit say June 4, 2019 is when Season 7 is on bluray. https://www.reddit.com/r/venturebros/comments/b14aa2/june_4_2019/
