I'm currently in the tentative stages of organizing a protest of Lucasarts officies in San Rafael, CA (I live in Santa Cruz, so picketing comes naturally to me). Target dates would be either March 19th or 22nd, but are somewhat flexible. Anybody interested should PM and E-Mail me (krashkow@aol.com). Let Lucasarts know how you feel!

I'd like to help, but I live nowhere near San Rafael, or California for that matter.

Do take some pictures. I'll put them on my website.

Two things you could do to help.

1) Send Lucasarts an actual lettr. E-Mails don't carry as much weight as posted letters. Here's an address for one of the managers (It's the same address as Lucasarts Prduct Support):

Mike Nelson
P.O. Box 10307
San Rafael, CA
94912
USA

2) If there any any message boards you frequent that may have Americans on them who are interested, spread the word about the protest and link this thread.

Krash Kow, be sure to print out the site picture from "Save Sam and Max" (that one picture on the "Home" page with all the screenshots behind it) several times on posterboard, and put the posters all over Lucasarts' building, cars in the parking lot, and in their general area.

I think its also VERY disrespectful, that LA hasnt said anything about the huge response, that canceling S&M for sure resulted in, that just proves it, LA DONT give sh*t about the people, the potentiel buyers, i AM boycoting LA forever, and i have started to hide any Star Wars game i can find in the shops ;)

If there is going to be a protest in CA, how many people are going to show up, I hope it doesn't turn out to be a joke and end up having only like 20 people there. Hopefully, there are a lot of fans in Cali that are willing to participate in this event. If it turns out the way I would of want it to, Then send me pics!!! Unfortunately I am unable to attend this event because of my residence as an east coaster...:(

Hey folks. It's is I. I've had to postpone the protest until monday. However, I may end up being the only fellow out there. Almost all of the e-mails have come from out-of-staters giving me support (which is cool). Not many in the bay area seem to be biting.

03-21-2004, 05:15 AM
Alright folks, a severe complication has arisen in the whole picketing plan. Today I mounted a reconnaissance mission to San Rafael to get a lay of the place and figure out good meeting points, good places to leave cars and most of all, figure the best spot to picket at Lucasarts headquarters. Using the direction I had to the Lucasarts Main Office, I found myself in a posh residential neighborhood, with home behind gates and such. I followed the road (Summit Ave.) all the way until it became another road and dumped out at Dominican University. I kept searching for quite a while, but to no avail. It seems that the address of Lucasarts HQ is a decoy. Needless to say, Iím quite frustrated by this.
With this in mind, Iím going to have to call the protest a wash for the time being. Iíve contacted Steve Purcell and asked him for Lucasartsí offices address, but he seemed reticent when it came to revealing the location (perhaps a condidentiality clause?) With this in mind, if anyone has any suggestions about where to go from here, Iím listening. If you know where to go, let me know. Or, if anyone has any other ideas about how to take the fight to Lucasarts, Iím all ears. Iím sorry about all this folks. Guess itís back to the drawing board. Again, contact me if you have any info or suggestions.

RichC
03-22-2004, 03:24 AM
So I guess the picket line fell through? Damn, I was really looking forward to pictures. Anyway, I guess the next thing to do is gather everybody for E3. One problem: E3 isn't open to the public. You have to be industry to register and attend. Anybody have any industry contacts that would be willing to take a lot of flak for allowing a bunch of pissed off geeks to register? If we can't enter, we can always just congregate in front of the LA Convention center with T-Shirts. I think the "Save Max" image has already been uploaded to cafepress. Someone better informed and connected than I should step up and take charge of the E3 Event.

Good news folks. I was just given new directions to Lucasarts headquarters and I think the protest is a go again. However, I'm on spring break and no longer in town. I will use this time to plan, however. I will be getting everyone more details. I really want to make this work and now I have the tools to do it. I'll update this thread as soon as I have more info. New date wouldn't be for at least another week and a half though. Sorry for the big SNAFU this has been, but I'll try and rectify it.

The right place. The headquarters address I got was off of switchboard.com, and they were oh so incredibly inaccurate. Hmmm...I wonder if they were using switchboard.com when looking for WMDs in Iraq?

Hehe! I'm being topical! :D

We've been sending to a PO box, which is most likely accurate, since it's from LucasArts's webpage. Still, it might be nice to have a physical address to make absolutely certain that our mail reaches its intended destination...

Seagoat
03-23-2004, 02:35 AM
LucasArts has been operating from a PO box for years, and you can be certain that mail will reach them that way.
I hope you realize that nobody ever set up a decoy office or gave out a false address, LEC simply doesn't list their street address, just the PO box. When you looked at the map on switchboard.com it didn't know what street to map, so it placed the star in the dead center of San Rafael (as do all map services if they don't have enough info). And that center happens to be Summit Ave.

samandmaxfiend
03-24-2004, 02:06 AM
would a protest outside of E3 of people who cant get into e3 work? maybe we could hand out information abt sam & max 2 's cancellation 2 all the industry insiders..and they could take up the cause inside by ignoring lucasarts or telling themn abt their disappointment of the cancellation...

Skinkie
03-24-2004, 02:19 AM
Don't pass out cancelled info, pass out regular, then all these people will walk up to LucasArts and start asking about it, and they'll all be like "Hey you cancelled it? Why? These phamphlets make it look so cool"

RichC
03-24-2004, 09:07 PM
The E3 expo is going to be in LA from May 12-14.

Here's the info:
http://www.e3expo.com/e3expo/

To be eliglible to get a free exhibits pass, you have to provide industry ID in the form of:

Resale Tax Certificate
Company Credit Card
Insurance Card
Business Ad (with business card)
Business License
Commercial Lease (WITH COMPANY NAME)
Paycheck Stub
W-2 Form

So let's start working connections. Maybe another Adventure Game manufacturer will sponsor us, but to do so would earn the ire of Lucasarts.

More realistically though, we're looking at a protest outside the LA convention center. It's big and we probably won't be harassed by security if we behave. LAPD will be there as well. Best thing to do is just to organize a bunch of people, have them all wear "Max Lives" T-Shirts, and it should get our point across. Media will be there, so if they see a bunch of us, they're going to ask and see what the fuss is about. They'll think the game got reinstated or something and go inside and bug Lucasarts. I can host a few people as I used to live in LA and have a bunch of connections. Sign ups, anyone?

Brushguy
03-24-2004, 09:19 PM
I'm not near the Los Angeles area, so I can't attend. :( I'd love to though.

I think an E3 protest would be much more effective than a San Rafael 5-person protest. Handing out fliers and wearing T-shirts will definitely attract attention from other fans and the press.

Gotta keep fighting. We'll win this.

Why all the negative stuff? Nothing will ever happen if we don't try something. Who cares if it looks stupid, or no one will care.


You have a 0% chance of getting something done if you don't try it, and even if doing the protest increases the odds by 0.001% then should be worth taking.

I'll support whatever ideas come out, 'cause if we just sit around and bitch, then there is no chance of this game coming back.

Yes, but you miss one point there. They are professionals and they won't protest, I give you that. But they are professional journalists and in that function they can do their job: Reporting the events happening at E3. So if there are enough people there (outside) who show their protest, then the professionals will have something they can report about.

I wouldn't call it all that improbable that some magazines might do a tradeshow newsflash on the matter.

I say go for it. Unluckily Germany is too far away for me to go myself but I would if I was nearer to LA

Best of luck to you!

No, if someone does do something the worst that can happen is nothing.

That's the point. Nothing will happen. LEC will say "no comment" or something like that, then continue to push out s***t.

Jeez, I think we all need to relax, take a deep breath, call me an @SShole, and smile. If there was a popularity contest, it wouldnt be on the forum, since lucasars doesnt give a tiny tin crap about us. Lets just say were all masters of our own destiny, and we would be damned if anyone is gonna say anything otherwise. And what does this have to do with anything? It doesnt, but i hope i lightened up the mood a little :max:

OK guys, three things:
1. Stop posting **** on the thread. If you want to talk about severed cocks, talk about it on the offtopic board.
2. The address of Lucas Arts in San Rafeal is 1600 Los Gamos Dr., San Rafeal. Map (http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?latlongtype=internal&addtohistory=&latitude=KNpD96YvzPY%3d&longitude=goIhr%2bc7tybgNmt5JI0BrQ%3d%3d&name=Lucas%20Arts%20Entertainment&countryid=250&country=US&address=1600%20Los%20Gamos%20Dr&city=San%20Rafael&state=CA&zipcode=94903&phone=415%2d472%2d3400&cat=lucas%20entertainment&spurl=0&searchtype=searchsearch)
3.Go to E3insider.com I think that helps you get into E3 somehow. . .

First off, Where does someone making their first post get the balls to command us around. Second off, all this you posted is old news. Theres just not much we can do now, just what we know of right now

I'm sorry if I insulted anyone because I'm new, but Krash Kow set up this thread to let us talk about the possibility of picket-line protests for Sam & Max 2. The thread has now wandered into a rather disturbing and definitely offtopic place. I do hope someone goes to E3 though, as all the gaming magazines I read report everything that happens there, including parties, embarrasing things, and protests! So create a protest in the names of Sam and Max, instead of micheal Jackson's privates (although killing Clay Aitken would probably be enjoyable. . .).

Oh, and for Synthetic Gerbil, I may not be alowed to tell you to be existential, but I can tell you to stop spamming the boards with eroneous crap!

Hey, don't **** with Gerbil, he is more useful here than you or I (yeah, I know that sounds like gratuitous hero worship.)

Why do people even care about Freelance Police anymore? You need to let go, we still have the comics (well me and several others do) and the HTR. So, I would go as far to say you are hurting the boards much more than a vet is.

And you can edit your posts.

Sorry, I know how to edit posts, I just accidently hit the submit button twice. Also, I apologize I was out of my place as a noob, but we all have to be new sometime, right? Also (and I swear this is the last mean or commanding thing I'm gonna say), after several months of lurking, I haven't really seen Gerbil do too much. He's just kinda been mean from what I've seen (And please correct me if I'm wrong). However, I would appreciate it if his posts where slightly less. . . disturbing.

Also, for Dr. Edison, I'm still trying to get S&M 2, as all I have is HTR, and I can't find the comics anyway. And yes, I am useless.

Sorry if I insulted anyone, at anytime, or in anyplace.

Uh ok, I don't care about those second two things, I would just like to point out in reguards to #1 that this is the offtopic board. Don't believe me? Check the name, Anything and Everyting, Mainstream is the Sam and Max discussion area.

You may also delete your own posts by means of the edit option. Please feel free to do this often. Editing your post to say "please delete it," or adding yet another post to apologize for the post in question, makes me very surly. And surely you don't want me surly.


Any comment that sounds remotely like the "Airplane" joke will be promptly castigated.

What's wrong with Airplane! ?

If it were on TV right now I sure as hell wouldn't be in typing this.

Everyone's points are duly noted. It may be the offtopic board, but I still feel that we should make an atempt to get this thread back under control. Anyway, this is all I'm going to post on this thread unless it either goes back to being about the protests or if someone REALLY ticks me off on here.

And yes, Airplane! is a good movie.

Actually, I've never really seen RayJones do too much, so I can't really say anything bad about him.

However, let's use Gerbil's last post as an example of his behavior:
Originally posted by SyntheticGerbil
Well I mean, if you look at Brushguy's game webpage, it's obvious he has some sort of acute brain damage.
No wonder he posts here so much! If he posts anywhere else, he'd be banned for excessive flaming and use of "obscene" language. You know, you have to agree not to do those things just to register (yes, I'm so pathetic I read notices things sometimes). Who knows how young some of the people who come here are? Just try to be a bit more considerate.

Also, Brushguy seems to be a nice guy (no pun intended). He's been an active part in many of the projects to revive Sam and Max, and even if his art skills may not be picture-perfect (still no pun), he is still a valuable member of this forum.

And I'm afraid, you, Gerbil, are not.

Even though this goes against all my principles, Gerbil's last post was pretty darn funny. Good job. ;)

No Skinkie, your better than that... though it is a bit mesmerising, but if you stare too long at the post, you'll go blind. I dunno what just happend, but it is right weird. Did someone just accept someone, or some verbal treaty just occur? Wow... my mind is blown. Does like, RayJ love SG now or something of the sort?:confused: <--- this is how i look right now, a frown and question marks hovering over my head.

...Just like an enima.

but at least im posting and making interesting observations, like you for instance, the very ambiguous moderator. Is he nice, or mean? is he articulate, or dum? is he cool, or is he really really cool?

My words are painful? I hope i can use that to my advantage

I have one question. Is anyone out there on this forum in the general location of lucasarts and could pick up where krashkow so sorrowfully dropped our hopes like a screaming bag of babies? Its so sad that he dissappeared into thin air.

SMNMX
04-28-2004, 07:34 PM
Screaming sacks of babies are funny. . . also, I'm near San Rafeal, but can do absolutely nothing about it due to being slightly under the driving age. However, MapQuest does have an actual location of the HQ (not a P.O. box) that I posted a while back. The old location came from some other site. . .

Dr Edison 007

So where the hell is the protest KrashKow, where the hell is the protest.

Some of us (well, not me) where very excited for it, but you let our hopes down.

SMNMX
06-22-2004, 01:20 PM
OUR hopes? That icludes you as someone who's excted about it!

If you are angry, print off the list of LucasArts smilies and shoot them with paintballs! 454 smilies! 400 Star Wars ones!

Or if you have dial-up, use this starter kit:
