|5/22/99- THE 1999 UNDERGROUND CABLE VIDEO AWARDS|
i.T. events: industrial TELEVISION party report...
Our first ever get together (to celebrate the completion of season 2) was a raging success! 42 lucky guests
witnessed uncut videos, ate pizza, and went wild at the i.T. party! Thanks to the GOTHIC BAR for letting the 2
Droogies unleash their madness on a willing audience.
Special kudos goes out to TED THE BOTTLE BOY — who smashed a bud lite bottle over his head, only to received 18 stitches as a result.
He bled for i.T.!!!!
(Footage from this event was included in year 3's season premiere... broadcast Saturday, Sept. 19th late night at 1:00 AM.)
Flash: Our Third Anniversary Party will not be held at the gothic bar (R.I.P.)
TENTATIVE PLANS: at THE 19th HOLE IN JULY.

iT update-summer ‘98
as we’ve just finished production on year two of iT I finally have the opportunity to reflect and update.
we are quietly influencing and subverting viewers of staten island... many stories come back to us from the employees at CTV recounting tales of hatred and worship. people have inquired at the station how they can produce a show like iT… good fuckin’ luck!!
according to a recent survey, 6% of all CTV viewers said they watch iT religiously. I know people are watching because Bri and I are starting to get recognized in public by strangers... ("you’re that guy!!!!") you can tell they’re regular viewers because they often quote scenes and dialog!! ... .scary, huh? I shudder to think what we’d be able to achieve with a real budget + network!
we continue to send out demo tapes of iT to the big boys (hbo, showtime, etc.), but they want only shows submitted by qualified agents. we would LOVE to do iT full-time as a real series... and welcome all leads, contacts, suggestions, etc. HELP US GET LEGIT!
probably the most asked question is "where do you guys come up with this shit?" the 2DROOGIES archives, that’s where! I’ve been collecting videos since ‘81... bri since about ‘84. between the two collections we have approximately 4-5,0OO hours of material, as for obtaining some of the more recent, obscure stuff, look to companies like: something weird, video resources, alpha blue archives, amongst others... .hey, he who seeks, finds! "A SICK MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!" many of the titles we feature (plus a lot of the inserts we stick in...) are from videos that are no longer in print. you know, they were issued back in the 80’s, the company folded, and they have never been re-issued. another good place to find lots of shit is at any of the horror / science fiction conventions that are held locally. (chiller theatre, fangoria, etc.) many tables are set up selling all sorts of vids - with mucho bargains to be had if you haggle! HE WHO SEEKS, FINDS!!!!
"it's the best show on tv, not just CTV!"
"I hear that show’s really hard to do!"
"where the fuck do youse guys Find that shit?!"
"you have a very professional looking show-do you guys work at a stock footage house?"
"I want to meet the notorious perverts that produce iT"
"we’re not worthy!"... (accompanied by reverent bows to our editing room)
"you guys were really pushing the envelope this week!"
"you’re very sick, demented men"
"how come some people have to subscribe to playboy, when you can get nudity for free?"
"I caught my son watching iT… he quickly changed the channel when I entered the room."
"was that shit for real?"
"I like the way you go from the nudity to the gore!"
"aren’t there rules against this kind of program?"
"FUCK DOCTOR DOLAN!"
"I can’t believe this show is locally produced!"
