NextGen Player Goes Postal Contest

I was thinking to myself the other day that we should run a contest on NextGen Player. A contest so exciting that all our faithful readers would ohh and ahh with sheer joy. And then, when I realized that I didn't have any prizes to give away I got frustrated, then mad, then I went absolutely insane postal!

That's when it dawned on me. Let's give away Postal the video game. Actually let's give away the Fudge Pack compilation pack that includes Postal 1, Postal 2: Share the Pain, Postal 2: Apocalypse Weekend, and more.

But that's not enough. I also thought it would be really cool to give away some copies of the Postal DVD (street date is August 26th), as well as a handful of Postal posters.

So yes, it's decided, this is a real contest, with real prizes!

Here's the deal, to enter all you need to do is email us a haiku about going crazy, or insane, or loony, or postal if you will. The deadline for submission is September 15, 2008.

Send your haikus to

Here's an example from NGP Co-founder Matt Vernhout:

Craziness pulses
Thinking about delivering the mail
I must be postal

Remember, haikus go 5 syllables, then 7 syllables, then 5 more syllables. Actually, I'm not going to count syllables, so just send us something that sort of resembles a haiku.

Since we're such nice people here at NextGen Player we'll even give everyone a chance to enter twice. All you have to do is subscribe to our email newsletter by entering your email address into that subscribe box in the top right corner of our website. Please note that in order to get two entries you need to use the same email address for both entries! Or else how would we know it's the same person? We may be super cool, but we're not that smart.
