Chris Kempt recently did some work with the guys at Sumo, and in return had the opportunity for a free SumoSac. Rather than make the guys spring for shipping to Europe, Chris told them to send it to us! We had no idea it was coming, so it was a huge surprise when this massive THING arrived at the office... It looked like a tractor tire in a duffel bag. We had to roll it up the stairs and down the hall before cutting the ties and figuring out what was inside.
If you remember, Sumo sent us an Omni cushion in exchange for a plug back in 2006.
The guys LOVE the SumoSac (it's huge) and we thought it would be cool to have a few more, so I contacted Sumo and asked for SIX more sacs in exchange for a bunch of plugs. Yesterday, the sacs arrived! They are totally worth checking out and I'll be plugging them over the next 18 days leading up to Comic-Con. If you aren't aware, I'm posting DAILY until I leave for Comic-Con on July 20th, and to make it interesting we're giving out $100 per day. To participate in the raffle, all you need to do is vote on five submissions while logged in. Every day I run a raffle script based on activity from the previous day, and a winner is declared!
Today's $100 winner is Evark, who happens to be a mod! Speaking of mods, the Mod Meat was this past weekend. I'll be posting more about that in one of my upcoming daily posts.
In other news, I've made a secondary version of the Bytesize player and put it in the Portal, along with some new Bytesize submissions. This player skips the news bytes and runs at twice the size, for an enhanced viewing experience!
Here's a pic of the Sumo Sacs! I was trying to re-create a scene from House of 1000 Cats, which was re-creating a scene from this edited Pico Day pre-loader.
