Here's a great unsolicited message we've gotten lately:
Dude.. I used to live on Staten Island and watch Industrial Television all the time.
I would stay up late and tape the show. I have been a big fan for about 7 years.
I moved to NJ and I miss iTv...Just wanted to drop a line to you and say thanks
for putting some of the videos on YOUTUBE. I already downloaded them all.
The show is Chaoticly Brilliant !!!!! Please keep uploading
as many of the shorts as you can.
I have subscribed to your channel...
Thanks a lot, Jason
(sadly, this is no more... )

industrial TELEVISION-A brief history...
for more info see "F.A.Q.S"
industrial TELEVISION-created by the "2droogies"- edmund varuolo and brian powell.
industrial TELEVISION is an underground film & video oriented cable access show produced here on staten island...(since 1996 and still running!)
Every Sat. night at midnight, "iTv" features an eclectic underground mix of cult, uncensored and subversive film & video from around the globe. It's all been screened/filtered/re-edited by your hosts, the 2droogies. We are (and have been for years) the most popular locally-produced cable television series on staten island.
industrial TELEVISION first aired during june '96 (the pilot episode) on staten island community
television, our local access channel here. Due to a very favorable
response, we decided to go for a series contract at sictv and commit to an ambitious schedule of a new
1-hour episode every two weeks.
At that time, we had an estimated 30-40 hours of possible programming culled from our vast collections. (some on Beta!) Right from the beginning, we featured many industrial training films (these are a staple of the show-hence the title "industrial TELEVISION"),b-movie trailers, nudie loops, and edited-down features.
After episode eight, we started shooting additional footage ("inserts") to be cut into the body of each program. You know .... idiotic reaction shots and such .... sort of a running visual commentary/stoner's-eye view...(somewhere between beavis and zacherle.) We also then decided to re-dub the audio on certain clips with our own "funny" dialog. These changes allowed us to truly customize each episode and many fans tell us it's their favorite part of the show.
after many years on the air & 183+ hours of programming, we are still the #1 show* on staten island community television...despite never being aired earlier than midnite!...Hmm, and judging the number of complaint calls to the station has dropped to nil, we've succeeded have somehow managed to anesthetize staten island!
Matt (the channel's director) teaches a media class at St. John's, & iTv is the only show asked about by students.

and now - a brief, official-sounding bullshit disclaimer:
"industrial TELEVISION does not necessarily endorse or condone some of the acts and scenes depicted, but rather presents them as a sociological statement, in some cases parodying and exposing the underlying hypocrisies of this idiosyncratic world we live in..." ...yeah, right!
BOY, THIS HERE'S SOME OLD SHIT, BUT IT MAY SERVE AS A QUICK HISTORY FOR NOVICE VIEWERS, plus it's one of the 1st things posted on this website, SO WE LEAVE IT UP...
...the 3rd season of uncensored film and video clips compiled by the 2 Droogies premiered Sept. 19th, 1998 late night at 1 AM on ch. 24 - Staten Island Community Television....
the only station with balls big enough to air it!!!...the new opening has garnered enthusiastic reviews from those lucky enough to see it. It's louder, faster, and just as outlandish as one would expect!!! (it even got us the job to create,for the off-broadway stage production- the dante project) the video montage in their presentation of "Inferno". what, you missed it?)
Amongst the special episodes in the planning for the new season:
--tribute to DRUGS!!
--special HALLOWEEN edition
--i.T. celebrates Black History Month
--salute to TITS (part two!)
--juvenile delinquents rule!
--all MONDO episode.. .the sequel!
--our annual christmas show
>>>> all this and much more— in addition to our weekly compilations of the strange, the bizarre, and the unseen!!!
View at your own risk!!!
Recently, a fan reports that he seen a preacher on the ferry who commented: "industrial TELEVISION" is a prime example of the decay of morals in today's society!!!
(...another sign that the apocalypse is upon us!!!)
