When will Triumph’s debut album be released? An anxious world awaits.

Yeah, looks like they haven't changed that page since the Video Music Awards deal with Eminem over 9 months ago.

I want to know when TV Funhouse is coming out on DVD. Did you guys get that down there? Robert Smeigel, same guy who does Triumph. Demented kids' show, basically. Animal puppets humping real animals, evil cartoon parodies, alcoholism and drug abuse, your basic good time.

You made me nervous. For a moment there I thought you were talking about defunct Canadian 70s band Triumph.

We do indeed get TV Funhouse on cable in Oz. It's fantastic, but it looks like they only made one series. I managed to snag Triumph at The Westminster Dog Show and burnt it to DVD for posterity - courtesy of Conan O'Brien.

Great TV - for me to poop on.

Yeah, they only did 8 episodes. I'm kind of amazed they got away with that many, really. There was one sketch called "Porn for Kids," which was basically a porn scene with the nudity and sex cut out. The intro was a bunch of kids running around singing, "Porn for kids! Porn for kids!" That aired once, and when the repeat aired that weekend, the intro was gone and the title had magically changed to "Porn for Everyone." That Smeigel...
