    I had a chance to speak to my connections with Triumph the Insult Comic dog when they were here at the store last, and she's a good acquaintance of mine. It costs a pretty penny to have Triumph show up at an in-store, but he doesn't do conventions or special appearances. He also comes with a huge setup, like Christina mentioned.

    I think it'd be cool to see him at a convention, but the reps won't do it. *frowns*

    I sought out this little gem on the web through a search(since the link I used here didn't work) and was lucky enough to find the full version, from start to finish, and watched it end to end.

    Now I've only heard about the business of waiting on a line for days before the release of an anticipated film like...well, one of the prequels. All Triumph humiliations aside(and while I couldn't help but feel sympathy for all those victimized by that stogie-dropping mutt, I still laughed my exhibit-A off), I was totally amazed by what I saw. Playing boardgames while waiting on line? A full flippin' wedding? Scene re-enactments?? WOW! I'm a heathen for thinking all it was was a big ol' campout! :)

    Tempts me into joining you guys n' gals for the waiting time prior to Episode III's release, but I'd have to save up some vacation time from work and finance survival gear...when does the line start forming? How early?

    Sorry...I digress. About this whole thing with you wanting Triumph or going to Conan? Well...if all else fails, here's a thought.

    Plan.

    Plan on Triumph's possible return if another line is to form for Episode III. Prepare something...anything...in anticipation of his return. If the skit was funny and memorable enough to make it onto the DVD, I wouldn't be surprised if Smigel and his darn dog would want to prey on you all again.

    Look on the bright side, though...if my fanfilm scripts come to fruition and we start casting, this is one thing you can add to your acting resumes. :D

    Still looking forward to meeting many of you at Chevy's! :)

    - Johnny

    I am not sure when the line starts this time, but we are hoping to do something a bit different this time that does not involve lining up for weeks before. The line I am sure will happen, but we are just thinking of planning something a bit different. :D

    I still think we should either get tickets for a Conan taping or just show up.

    I say the day before the DVD release, we all invade the front row in costume! We should discuss this in detail at our next meeting :)

    Hi guys, how the hell have you been?

    I stumbled onto this thread from a Google link while searching "you will die alone" (it's a long story).

    One of the freelance gigs I had last year was at Comedy Central (actually the HBO facility out on LI), and when we reran the Conan anniversary special a few days after NBC, the technicians at HBO were in hysterics watching the Triumph Star Wars clips. These guys don't laugh at anything after watching Comedy Central's programming 24/7, but this made them cry.

    Long time no see, Sardonicus.

    What made me cry was that Blackwolf the Dragon Master got a SAG card out of it! :_| :D

    "What made me cry was that Blackwolf the Dragon Master got a SAG card out of it!"

    In the words of Eric Cartman:

    "Ah, geez. Are you [BLEEP!] kidding me?"

    Just saw on The Digital Bits web site that on 8/10/04 they will be releasing a Best of Triumph The Insult Comic Dog DVD.

    Amazon.com has it for preorder.

    Why do I have a feeling that this skit will be on it

    I said the same thing to my dad. Although he said wait until AFTER the DVD makes millions :) If we are on it, I want money. I never signed jack sugar for him to use my likeness.

    First it was a joke about the money, now I'm serious. Sam's right, we never signed a release form for the Conan O'Brien show! :D

    I was referring to my own joking about DragonMaster, how he got money and how we should too, but never gave it much thought. But now that I think of it, we should pursue this. If I don't pay off Jabba the college loans I'm a dead man.
