ADWS was a fun ride with an unexciting yet satisfactory ending, though Cracks is my favorite just because I'm a huge Muppet-head and as if the short wasn't weird enough in and of itself and not suited for Sesame Street, the whole saga surrounding Jon Armond's source and everything else fascinates me.

My favorite piece of lost media that's been found: The Electric Piper, Cracks My favorite piece of lost media that's still lost: Doraemon '73, Pinwheel (all of it, not just the Clockman), Agent Crush... there's just too many interesting pieces of lost media that fascinate me.

My favorite piece of found media: Michael Jackson "A Place with No Name", Cracks My favorite piece of lost media: Super Dog Booby, Eagle Sam, Hoshi no Ko Poron, Gan to Gon, Doraemon VB game, Doraemon 1973, Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill, Sesame Street Episode 847
Cracks and Cry Baby Lane will always hold a special place for me (in terms of found media)
Favourite (well, favourite is probably not the greatest word to use in this case, but the one I am most interested in) lost piece of media is the Chubbuck tape. Clock Man also has a pretty big hold on me; it's the thing I'm currently putting all my efforts into looking for.
Many but one that came to mind is the Creed Allstate Stadium concert footage. The story behind it sounds so ridiculous that I can't help but to enjoy this fabulous disaster on Stapp's part. Really want to see it though just to hear Scott Stapp mumble even worse than usual.

Cracks is an awesome little short and I love it even outside the context.
The SMiLE album Brian Wilson was working on and never finished in '66 and '67 is my favorite piece of media EVER. What exists and what is tantalizingly out of reach is so beautiful it hurts.
Greed, The Magnificent Ambersons, Bug Wars, The Day the Clown Cried and Him are my favorite lost films to read about and speculate on.
Bio Force Ape I remember being obsessed with, and I saw the original forum hoax play out which was both funny and infuriating. The game itself is cool too.
Not to toot my own horn, but the two I had a part in saving were also really cool. I wrote the original wikipedia for Cry Baby Lane that garnered the attention of Reddit and got it found by FireSaladPeach. My part went largely overlooked, but Im glad things happened as they did even if the movie sucked. And it was really surreal seeing Just For Kicks on here and called the rarest Nick show ever when I had a copy on my own computer at the time. Now I know what it must feel like to find something one of a kind in your attic! It was an honor to bring that show back and it still blows my mind that if I didnt have a crush on one of the actresses back in the day it never would have been saved.
Someone uploaded a couple episodes of Lost on Earth a while back after the show had been nearly impossible to find again. I thought it'd be bad when I watched them but they were actually pretty entertaining.
Rapsittie Street Kids was another fave just for all the details surrounding it. I saw that Wolf Tracer reel video years previous and then being surprised when it finally got released. Even after we know so much about it we still barely have the whole story. It's crazy.
My favorite piece of lost media is Cry Baby Lane but I found this on YouTube and I’m reading a lot of people talk about it. Is this important? youtu.be/N11NdueDr0k
Cry Baby Lane was lost for quite a while. I forgot the story about how it started coming up again, though I want to say it was on 4chan or Reddit. From what I remember, someone recorded it on VHS the night it originally aired and there was tons of support coming in for people petitioning Nickelodeon to air it again. It's aired on and off every Halloween since 2011, and it's also readily available on Youtube as well. With it being Halloween season, I'm sure The Splat will show it again soon.

Lost media wise, I'd probably say Brad Jones' "Sadistic Bitch" comes to mind. I've lost a lot of respect for Brad over the past year and a half, but I'm still hoping that he finds it again because of it's notority for being extremly violent and presumably much more bleak and exploitative than Cheap (2005). Another good contender is "Bake Jizo" and "Shinin no sosei" from the 1890s, being two of Japan's first movies ever produced. Those ones I doubt will ever be found since less than 1% of all movies made before the Great Kanto Earthquake and WW2 are believed to be long gone, and anything that has survived is incomplete.
I like looking at articles about lost English dubs of anime, including the Phuuz dubs of Doraemon and Crayon Shin-chan from the 2000's. My other favorite is the TATMR uncut workprint and it'll be nice if I saw more footage of the 1973 anime of Doraemon.
