Coop just announced an epic animation contest to follow up a writing contest. Writers were asked to pick out a song from the Audio Portal and write a story to compliment it. Every story contains a link to a related song. Animators are now asked to create an animation to match the story, using the song. Writers and musicians should be credited in your entry. Read Coops post for the complete details; it would be awesome to see a good turnout for this! Prizes are to be determined.

Mockery and poxpower just released a charity game to raise money for Japan's recovery, check it out and donate!

Thank you everyone who came out to see us at PAX East in Boston last week. IGN awarded us the unofficial best booth of the show, thanks to the amazing BattleBlock Theater and Castle Crashers arcade cabinets! Castle Crashers also just happened to win PS3 Downloadable Game of the Year - thank you for voting!!!

I won't be doing a live broadcast this week but Goldfish will be tomorrow. Also we hope to announce the next Animation Jam this week, so it can happen before the month is over.

This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Thanks in advance to all who donate to help the people of Japan!

Also, congrats on the best PAX booth! Really wish I could've been there to see it in person... guess I'll have to wait 'til the San Diego Comic-Con to see all the awesomeness.

I bought the best mini 'Age of Zombies' which was on sale before, and I am so glad to hear Castle Crashers came on top of the Best Downloadable PS3 Game of the Year leaderboards. I hope I can get enough money to get Castle Crashers! Also, I heard about the tsunami, very tragic... I love to donate for Japan but unfortunately, I'm going to save my money for the stuff I want, sorry...

Those arcade cabinets look sweet! How'd you make the 3D castle crashers on the side?
Also, I'll be donating to Japan.

There is also a excellent flash by anarchianbedlam called very simply Help Japan. It's a very short but well done video regarding the plight of Japan. There is also a link in the Author's summary to donate to Unicef.

Gee Tom, I'd love to donate but I'm just a kid with no money.
I do, however, have 20 dollars in store credit that's just sitting around... I'm not sure what the exchange is between "Newgrounds Bucks" and real money, but it'd be awesome if you could take the money out of my account and give it to Japan!

Wow that sure is a nice machine ;)

Will Battle Block Theater be aviable for the Wii? I'm too poor to afford a PS3.

I feel sorry for Japan. But it IS a fact that Japan gets a lot of earthquakes. Also, there is another threat that some of you may not know about. RADIATION. I would donate if I got my parents' permission.

Thanks again to all of you who've been donating to the charity for the people of Japan. Even if you can't donate, please spread the word about it, because people you know might be able to donate too.

But intent should be almost irrelevant, given the result. The NHL and the players association (are you listening Donald Fehr?) have to find a way that players entering dangerous situations are much more aware of what they're doing, and how to pull up from it. That comes from conditioning. And the only Pavlovian processes NHLers respond to always involve penalties, fines and suspensions, in ascending order.

Consider something as simple as firing the puck over the boards in your own end: once considered a "hockey play." There are still a few such penalized clears but not like when the rule first came in. Teams made it a teachable skill not to loft it over the glass, because the resultant power plays were killing them.

So, too, that Chara-type hit has to be suspended out of the game.

But Murphy couldn't do that in this case, given what has and hasn't merited long suspensions this year and given how ridiculously forgiving the new head-contact rules are.

So, this off-season, a new, much more costly regimen of suspensions and fines has to be introduced, none of them dependent upon previous rulings. They set the bar too low.

The league did that with the interference and offside rules after the lockout, and they should be doing it in time for next season with careless hits along an increasingly dangerous part of the ice.

PAX sounded really fun, especially for stuff like this. I'd love to see Battleblock Theatre outside of a convention, so the rest of us can try it, but I'll wait patiently.
