Be sure to check out the November Audio Contest! Winners from last month's contest were posted by Rucklo and can be used in your Christmas contest submissions.

I have some community announcements to make! A new Stagknight trailer has been released, which you can download here. Newgrounds makes a cameo in Stagknight, so be sure to go see it when it hits theaters!

Hayk Manyukan, of Neenja and Sweet Mother of Vartan fame, is putting out a call for help to produce a feature length animated film. He is trying to raise money to produce a trailer/commercial to attract potential investors. Arvest, a large scale annual showcase of young Armenian artists organised by the AGBU Young Professionals, recently donated money to the cause, as has Newgrounds. You can learn more about it here!

James Farr is also raising money for his feature length Xombie film. You can donate on his website. Please do what you can to make their dreams a reality! I always like to think that somewhere out there in NG-land, there are some really rich fans with millions of dollars to burn. If you're one of them, now's your chance. :)

In office news... This week we received some free Sumo Omni beanbag chairs and ottos! These aren't no ordinary beanbag chairs; they are massive and durable! We've already done flips and jump kicks onto them, but they are also great for just lounging around. Now we're wondering if we should even bother with a conference table, or just sit around and chat while lounging on these things.

Sumo sent us these freebies so that we would give them a plug, so here it is! The chairs are big and comfortable, water repellant, stain resistant and colorful. You can buy them directly from http://www.sumolounge.com and be lounging around in no time. The otto is nice for propping up your feet, depending on how you like to lounge. Here's a pic of us lounging around. That's Josh from the Behemoth on the left, I'm on the right.

$150 for a bean bag chair? That's a bit much, isn't it?

Next thing you know Tom will go looking for free products via plugging, like every other sentence will include plugs to IKEA or SONY.

What kind of cameo, Tom? Like... they talk about Newgrounds or something? Or they upload a movie on Newgrounds? :)

I'd like to know...

(This pic gave me an idea...Sorry! XD )

*nods*

Did they make you sign a contract saying you will have to plug in their product? Because you could've just grabbed the freebies and told them to scram.
