Have Your Say

Posted by emmanuelle on May 31st, 2013

balloon sites

Over the last few years I’ve experimented with individual clip downloads versus site memberships. I’ve found that over the years, many people simply prefer to download single clips, with a one time fee in the $5 range, and others still enjoy the traditional membership system, where they get access to hundreds or thousands of clips for about $20. I always thought that people get much better value from site memberships, but they obviously don’t appeal to everyone. Now I want to hear your thoughts on the matter. Please stay on topic, this isn’t the place for gripes and complaints, I’m just looking for real discussion so that I can make things better for everyone.
If you prefer individual downloads, I’d like to know your preference in terms of format (pc/ipad etc), and whether you prefer to get your clips from somewhere like C4S or our very own Balloon Video Clips and why.
Thanks in advance to everyone to taking the time to contribute!

A BeachBall So Huge You Can Get In It!

Posted by emmanuelle on July 14th, 2008


Beach ball fans in western Canada have been holding out on us. Did you know that at the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta, you can take a spin IN a beachball?  No, really. You can rent time to play inside a giant clear beachball, with a zipper in it so that you can climb in and out. You might feel a little like you’re in a hamster ball, but they assure us that it’s just a huge vinyl beachball. Oh the possibilities are endless… Full story and bigger pic here

 

Inflatable Dolls Confiscated

Posted by emmanuelle on January 2nd, 2008


It seems that Philippine customs officials now have a surplus of inflatable sex dolls to enjoy, after hijacking a delivery intended for a PETA protest in that country. Perhaps one of the powers that be in Manilla really enjoys inflatables? Full story here


Attention NYC Area Theatre Buffs

Posted by emmanuelle on May 9th, 2007


Theatre fans in the NYC area may want to check out a new play by Jason Schafer called I Google Myself opening June 14 at Under St. Marks. It is the unusual story of three very different men with the same name. One is a gay porn star with a dirty little secret. One is a stoner mechanic who blogs poetry and has anger management issues. And another is a wily stalker with a balloon fetish, desperate to make a connection. Their worlds collide when one man Googles his own name to find others who share his moniker. It seems that balloon fetish is becoming more & more mainstream, no? You can get more information here


Pooltoy Sighting on TV Ad

Posted by Maya on May 2nd, 2007


Have you seen the TV commercial for Yoplait yoghurt? It features a pretty girl wandering through the city towards the beach, hiding behind a bright red airmat. The entire ad runs to the song ‘Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini’ and her cute bikini is revealed at the end. I saw it on tv tonight and immediately went to You Tube to find a clip. It’s not the best quality but click here to check it out!
