Anybody remember the website that sells these strange DVDs?

I had a bookmark for a website, but I lost it when my computer crashed. For the life of me, I can't remember the address and was hoping someone could help.

It was a webpage for a company that sold these really bizarre dvds. The dvds were only sold through their website and each featured tons of snippets -- one after another -- that were totally unrelated to each other.

The snippets would show really strange things like parts of TV shows from the 70's, portions of educational films, obscure movie clips, etc.

The content of these dvds would be perfect for playing on a TV in a bar (or during a party) because you don't really have to hear the audio.

They would show these things that would make you stop, watch and go "what the hell was that?"!!

Anyone remember these and know the website? Thanks!

Not sure if this site has snippets but it has some odd videos:

5 Minutes to Live

I've never used them but I check to see what they have from time to time.

Not sure how the discs are produced, video quality is fairly average though - they were used to fill gaps between movies at a 24 hour movie marathon i attended last year in a cinema.

I remember a public access cable show like that, from about 5-6 years ago. I watched it several times, and was actually disappointed when it went off.

Concrete TV? www.concretetv.com

Edit to add: Poking around about this subject, found another site that might be of interest to the bizarre compilations: www.tvcarnage.com

Although I had a hell of a fun time looking at these website (escpecially Concrete TV), it not any of the below:

www.concretetv.com
www.avgeeks.com
www.tinyurl.com/8hrtd
5 Minutes to Live
www.brutallo.com/index.html

But, as I suspected, some "DVDTalker" would know the site and now we have a winner!

The site I was looking for is:
http://www.tvcarnage.com/

Yah-Hoo!!!

Thanks to RKillgore!!

From tvcarnage:
These compilations are so insane in fact, we at TV CARNAGE are providing them for FREE! (after postage and handling and duplicating etc).
Apparently postage and handling and duplicating add up to be $25 per dvd. Somewhat interesting looking compilations, but beware of shipping costs.

Just to clear up any confusion by fellow DVDers, each DVDs is $25 total. You can look at it like this: $0 for the DVD and $25 for shipping, or $25 for the DVD and $0 for shipping. I prefer the latter -- but then again, I think the glass is half full.

most of 5minutes to live's titles are not in the public dormain. LETS SCARE JESSICA TO DEATH is a PAramount title for example. Isn't it against this boards policy to link a bootleg operation's web site?

Cool, glad to help. Too bad the concretetv site only gives you direct access to two episodes. To access the other episodes, type in the address http://www.concretetv.com/concretex-y.html, and substitute x for the number of episode (1-8) and y for the number of the part (1-6).
