Ok, so I just realised that my digital copy of Love-Hounds Collection DVD was on a harddrive that crashed a while back.

Can someone help me locating an active torrent file, upload a copy to an FTP, or direct me to a Direct Connect hub which has it?
I have my own DC++ hub software, so if you have a client, we can do a secure upload.

Thanks,
Mikael

No backup system?

Funny you should mention this. I have the old VHS tapes but I never received the updated DvD version. I’d be interested in a copy as well.

I chucked out all of my VHS tapes as they had gone mouldy.   Old cassettes have dried out and been disposed of.  Even several CDs are slowly gathering CD rot.    I suspect that I'll be next.
Vinyl!  Now that's a good invention.  Got to love those crackles.

Well, I'm the one who mastered those DVDs (it took me months of all my free time to do so), but a lot of the material later appeared in much higher quality on YouTube. Is it not still on YouTube?

In theory I have copies of the DVD images lying around somewhere and could make them available if I can figure out where I put them. I don't know offhand if they are currently on any torrent site.

I do have the old VHS tapes too. Haven’t played them for at least 15 years though, so I have no idea what condition my condition is in…
(pun intended)


And I do have analogue-to-digital equipment, so I could do a transfer.
But I’d rather have the better quality of the original DVD master.

I'll make the DVD images available sometime soon, but you'll have to install Resilio Sync in order to download it. Don't worry, it's free. And was written by BitTorrent Inc, so they knew what they were doing. E.g., it uses the BitTorrent protocol to perform the download.

Yes but the YouTube versions don't come with your surreal artwork and erudite liner notes, Doug.

I have ISO images of the two DVDs and will be happy to burn copies of these for Mikael and anyone else that emails me thier postal address.

(I spent half an hour rummaging in the garage for the DVD+RWs so I can't guarantee their state of preservation)

I can dig around if need be.  I dimly recollect having them burned into gold MAM-A DVD-Rs, which are used if you're into the whole preservation thing.

Actually, IIRC, IED did the cover art and and wrote the liner notes. Tippi Chai formatted the liner notes for DVD.

I did do all the surreal menus on the DVDs themselves, though.

There are also some easter eggs, which can be found by pressing the right sequences of keys on the right menus. Alas, I have no recollection of what those sequences actually are.

Also, unfortunately, I was looking around on my home computer and I cannot find a digital version of the liner notes. Knowing me, however, if you mount the DVD as a DVD-ROM, there's hopefully a printable copy of the liner notes to be found there.

This sounds like great work.

Although I have it, I haven't ever watched; I've been saving it for a rainy day.

I know that I promised this nearly a year ago, but it's been a really difficult year. In any case, here it finally is. I.e., a download link for the Eat the Video DVD images. I.e., this is the DVD set that I spent months mastering back in the mid 90s. Who knew that  the Internet would make this monumental project quickly obsolete? The video on these DVDs is now, no doubt, available in higher quality forms elsewhere, but this version will work in your DVD player, it has cool animated menus, and there's even an easter egg or two.

In order to use this link, you will need to install Resilio Sync, but it's a free program. And you don't have too worry about Resilio Sync being malware. It was written by the same guy who implemented BitTorrent. In fact, it uses the BitTorrent protocol. Also, I use Resilio Sync continuously to synchronize files between several different computers. It works very well:

P.S. I'm pretty sure that there are DVD covers and liner notes on the DVDs themselves. I.e., you'd have to mount the first DVD on a computer and from there you could print out the liner notes. They are designed to fit into a jewel case, rather than a DVD case. Some people gave me shit about this at the time, but this was the right decision, of course. (I think they are formatted for legal-sized paper, though.)

You're very welcome!

If anyone has success or problems downloading the DVD images, please let me know. I have Resilio Sync running pretty much all the time, my Mac at home is on pretty much all the time, and I'll just leave these DVD images available for download for the foreseeable future.

Enjoy!
