    Nice work, Kolisar! You're the first one I know thats cracked the Closing PH Interview on disc 9.

    Just updated the index. New finds on disc 5, 8, and 9 (thanks to kolisar and mindpirate).

    Only 3 Easter Eggs remaining now.

    1 on disc 3
    1 on disc 4
    1 on disc 8

    EDIT: Just watched the closing interview on disc 9. It's probably the best thing on the whole DVD set. Very inspiring. Thanks again for posting the find, kolisar.
     
  5. SWEET! Good work! I was pulling my hair out on this!
     
  6. Actually Disc 3 is done, Fridoliina posted the following earlier
    (http://forums.theory11.com/showpost.php?p=189279&postcount=23)
    So Fridoliina gets credit for not only completing Disc 3 but posting it in such a way that the post became an easter egg itself :)
     
  7. Haha--I added it in. Double Easter Egg. :)

    So all we have left is 1 on disc 4, and 1 on disc 8.
     
  8. The last Easter Egg for disc 8 has been posted (thanks to kissbpp in the TA forums).

    Ammar Interview #2
    During the explanation section of Unstable Label, toward the end of the explanation, an image of a wizard behind a mushroom pops up. Click "Enter" or "Select" on your DVD remote and it will take you to Ammar Interview #2.

    Only one Egg remaining now--the Eric Mead Interview on disc 4.
     

  9. Found it friends! I knew the tricky buggers would do this:

    In disc 4, on the Trailer that shows up at the beginning of every disc (you know, the one you always skip). After the little girl says something, the magician behind the mushroom will show. Hit enter on your remote and you will be taken to a very good Eric Mead interview.

    Have a glorious day.

  10. Thanks to Gatioxxx and MasterMosse2 (Brad) for the last find on disc 4:

    Eric Mead Interview #2
    When Disc 4 is inserted it will automatically play the introduction/trailer that precedes every disc. At the 4:05 mark, the wizard behind the mushroom appears. Clicking the "Enter" or "Select" o your remote and it will take you to Eric Mead Interview #2.

    The index is updated, but there seems to still be one Easter Egg left. Apparently there is Ammar Interview #3 somewhere on disc 9. Anybody find it yet?

  14. Can anyone tell me how to do this on a computer?
     
  15. Instead of pressing enter, left click. Occasionally you'll also need to right click or use the arrow buttons. Any particular one?
     
  16. Actually, my TA set is on the way right now, but I just wanted to know in advance... Sorry that I didn't make that clear... I will try that method, and if I have any problems, I will ask...

    Thanx Praetoritevong
     
  17. Need some help folks. Got my True Astonishments from my girlfriend from Valentines Day and just got done watching disc 1. Now I'm trying to access the easter eggs but having difficulty. I am watching from my computer but I can't seem to figure out what to press to go left or right. For example, for Daniel Garcia's "Cellophane" trick I went to the Twilight Angels page, clicked on "squeaky clean" but now I can't "go right". Can anyone test this out that has this and help me out? Thanx!
     
  18. um...ok...never mind!!!!!!! Sorry guys. I got it!!!!!! Thanx anyway!!
     
  19. Damn, awesome girlfriend.
     
  20. Actually, on the computer the many of the easter eggs are easier to access. It you know where the final location for the "press enter" is (where the mushroom appears in the menus in most cases) you can just click there with the mouse twice, the first time will make the mushroom appear (ant this is usually indicated by a yellow highlight that was not there in the previous menu), and the second time to actually trigger the easter egg to start.
