Title: Shaq Fu - New photo(n)s!!
Post by: drak on May 20, 2009, 10:54:42 PM
Alright, ladies and gents. The moment you've all been waiting for!

PRESENTING... The Shaq Staq, circa June 30th 2009.

(http://www.itisaneggpudding.com/image/staq6-30-09.jpg) (http://www.itisaneggpudding.com/image/staq6-30-09lg.jpg)
Click for the biggins.

You done good, kids.

To those who have said that they would check the surrounding area for more copies, your help and donations would still be appreciated... B-)

I have spoilered all the previous updates to this post since it is large and cluttery. It's all there though!
[spoiler]
HEY GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey guys who said they would donate money?

You should probably get on the actual money giving thing soon. B-)

bwee woo bwee woo bwee woo
we won guys!! GOOD JOB. Alert status over. for now. Pledges are, however, still accepted from those who still wish to help this dream flourish but are too lazy to scour the local area for Shaq Fus. 8-)

Pictures will go up whenever the thing arrives.

bwee woo bwee woo bwee woo
Okay so a Mr. Toxic "the" Machine has brought this to my attention.

A copy of Shaq Fu signed by two internet famous men. I do believe this would be a worthy addition to the collection. HOWEVER, chances are, this shit is going to get hot, since it involves wacky internet famous mans. There's no way one man could justify paying more than $50 for a copy of Shaq Fu...
... no way that one man could...
So, anyone wanna donate a little bit to owning this piece of bad internet history scribbled on a Shaq Fu cartridge? AJ and I are going to wait until the last day to bid, and will split the costs, if it's not too crazy high up there. Our dear The Machine has offered to throw $40 into the pot, like a true hero. Is anyone else willing to step up to the plate !?
Basically we'll bid up to however high we feel comfortable (taking into account how much it'll cost each of us along with how many donations are offered) and then if we win I'll run around and collect money from people. (through paypal, or through fake birthday cards in the mail, or whatever.) Five dollars, ten dollars, maybe even one dollar. Anything would help!

come on guys you know you want to

-----------------------------------


So.

Last summer, a little after my birthday, a group of friends led by my bro AJ come to pick me up for a night on the town. My ol' pal Joe was supposed to be there, but he was strangely absent. We all pile in the car and head off to our destination.

Upon arriving, there is a noise in the trunk. A ghastly moan.

I go to open up the trunk... and out pops Joe.

With a copy of Shaq Fu for the Sega Genesis.



This would not be the last Shaq Fu I received that night. Throughout the night, Joe would nonchalantly present me with yet MORE copies of this beautiful game at opportune moments. I ended up with 7 by the  time the festivities were over. I was pretty content.

Next time I saw Joe, several more copies came into my possession. Suddenly, 7 Shaq Fus became 9. I thought nothing of it.


Christmas 2008.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzADjkdTmqk[/youtube]
please try and endure aj's bad youtube intro. also my bad hair at the time jesus christ

13 Shaq Fus.

Shortly after this, I end up getting a great deal on a Game Gear with a ton of games included. There is.. there is also Shaq Fu in here. 14 Shaq Fus...

Cut to present day. I have 21 copies of Shaq Fu now. Five more are on their way to me through the mail. I have only actually purchased three of these, one by accident.

(http://www.itisaneggpudding.com/image/shaqs.jpg)

There is a website out there that promotes the collection and immediate destruction of Shaq Fu. This, frankly, disgusts me. AJ and I are now working to collect and preserve this priceless artifact.

(http://www.itisaneggpudding.com/image/priceless.jpg)
(this sticker was on it when i bought it)

So we are currently working on http://www.saveshaqfu.com . It will have some things relating to the actual game, as well as photos and origins of each Shaq Fu copy in my possession. Probably some other bullshit too.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN. Do you have a shitty old game store nearby? Do you happen to own this game already? Do you have a mega boner for drak? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should probably mail me a copy of Shaq Fu or two. Or three. Or four. PM me for mailing information. I am willing to strike a deal with those who do not wish to let a Shaq Fu out of their grasp so easily... but, really now. It's a good cause, isn't it.


tl;dr: pm me if you want to mail me copies of shaq fu


also before anyone asks yes that box under the topmost shaq fu with the guy on it is a shaq fu box. it just.. it just has a photo of rattleman taped to it. the cartridge also bears this photograph.

Well, since you went and made a post about it:
A few months ago, while looking for a job, I stopped into a small used games store to apply, and saw a copy there.

That I bought.

With the sole intention of having Rixx give me your address so that I could send it to you.


But now everyone's gonna do it. :[

Rixx also has a copy or two that he was gonna send to you with mine, but now the surprise has been ruined, so expect a couple copies in the mail (with a special surprise) from VAYGUS some time in the near future.

Rixx already informed me of this today, actually! Which is partially why I decided to make this post. I figure there must be a couple more heroes here willing to donate to the cause. (Your two shaq fus are included in my "five more on the way in the mail," in fact. 8-) ) It's alright, you will be the ORIGINAL INTERNET CONTRIBUTORS.

Well, Genesis ones on Ebay you can usually pay a max of $3.99 or so including shipping. I bought the factory sealed Canadian copy we have for a dollar off of there.

HOWEVER! Amazon DOES have Gameboy copies. Something we don't have yet, and something you can't find on Ebay.


Just throwin' that out there.


Gameboy copies.

part of your project should be to create and install historical plaques related to Shaq Fu (e.g., where it was created, where it was purchased by some random guy, where it was resold for five bucks this one time, where shaq's childhood home once stood, etc. etc.)

the only reason you should do this is so that you can have a section on your site called Plaq Fu.

I will help make this happen.

Title: Re: Shaq Fu - An urgent development !!
Post by: Bob Barker on June 13, 2009, 01:23:24 PM
Assuming that everyone contributes the amount they said they would, we have at least $125.  And that's not even counting Drak or AJ.

And with the current bid at 81, I think we may have it.
Title: Re: Shaq Fu - An urgent development !!
Post by: drak on June 13, 2009, 02:28:05 PM
Which reminds me. Let's say we have some overflow at the end - like, $125 total in pledges, but the auction ends at $100. I want to offer people two options - either we refund it (or you keep it, I guess, since most people have opted for the "I'll reimburse you if you win" thing)... OR you can donate it to buying more generic vanilla Shaq Fus from the internet. 8-)

JUST AN IDEA, FOLKS.

Nope. Spazz told us that he'd just do the bidding with his donation and adding ours to it. It was the MASTER PLAN and it WORKED.


Spazz. I want to fuck you. All over everything. Forever.
Title: Re: Shaq Fu - An urgent development !!
Post by: drak on June 13, 2009, 08:57:31 PM
No. Spazz was our secret DARK HORSE ACE IN THE HOLE. He pledged a massive $100 on the terms that he would be the one to make the bid. I HAD NO QUALMS WITH THIS.

I guess we didn't end up with any extra money after all. Thank you to everyone who pledged big dollars! Kind of terrifying that someone bid us up so close to our max bid of $265, but we pulled through. GOOD JOB FRIENDS

Post by: SuitCase on June 21, 2009, 01:55:27 AM
I think with the website up and looking impressive, you could submit it to him on Twitter and he'd probably at least give you some kind of approval, if not help you organise a signing. He tends to go through his messages every once in a while and do mass-replies.
Title: Re: Shaq Fu - People who pledged, get in here.
Post by: drak on June 21, 2009, 01:59:45 AM
Yeah, that was the plan. Just need to work on that whole "website up" thing.

I also kinda wanted to get at least 50 shaq fus before contacting him, because that sounds like a kind of impressive number.

Alright, so. "stopsay.in & dontru.in" are defunct, confirmed by Suitcase. Now we know that Shaq Fu is no longer being saved. Have at least two of the long-running SER stickies finally outlived their purpose? Someone should probably take them down before the odor sets in.
