I was watching an old Jim Carrey movie the other day, The Mask, and came across a scene where he distracts some thugs with balloon twisting. Just goes to show that balloons are loved by everyone.
If you would like to see some balloon art that is just a little bit different from your run of the mill, balloon artist creations, take a look at this link;
Can anyone really say the don’t enjoy watching people fall, or faint? Well, I admit, the physical humor of falls and faints makes me laugh. Hope you enjoy as well. I don’t think anyone in the video was truly hurt, which is good.
I am always fascinated by slow motion photography of simple daily events. Here’s some really interesting slow motion stuff, slowed down much more than you’ve probably seen before, including popping balloons.
I found this video on YouTube while I was Stumbling around the internet. Interesting test. Fun trumps convenience.
While clicking through Stumbleupon today I came across this amazing photo. Thought you might like it too.
With all the difficulties in the housing market across the country these days, this video caught my attention. Thought you might find it interesting.
I’m putting up two features today. Don’t usually run across two things that I really like and want to share. This video isn’t balloon oriented, but still fun to watch. Opens up a whole new world to the eyes with the super slow motion filming. For now, we take a little break from balloons to watch a lot of other stuff break.
I found this balloon video today and thought you all might enjoy it too. Just another interesting way to do something with the incredibly versatile balloon. I love balloons and all they can do. Mostly, they just make people smile.
Making Rubber (latex) gloves
I’m always fascinated by the manufacturing process and how things are made. Here’s a video about the making of rubber gloves which is very interesting. Similar to how balloons are made.
Someone sent me the video below and it was interesting enough that I decided to include it as today’s feature. Someone went to a lot of work to set this up. Doesn’t have anything to do with balloons, or balloon twisting, but it certainly fun.
Today’s feature doesn’t have any connection to balloons, or balloon twisting, but it’s funny enough to skip the balloons for just a few minutes and see some funny cats. Here’s an entertaining video I found on YouTube today. Some really funny cats! I guess it’s just my affection for physical humor!
Making Qualatex Balloons
Qualatex is one of the most popular balloon brands used by professional balloon twisters. Personally, I use only Qualatex balloons and was fascinated to see the following video about how balloons are actually made. Enjoy!
Remember the Day?
If you’re more than 45, you’ll certainly remember back a few years when Steve Martin first started doing his comedy routine. If your under 45, stay with me anyway. It was about the same time Saturday Night Live got started with all those great cast members that were so funny that you just couldn’t bear to miss the show on the weekend. Remember John Belushi and the Samuari BMOC?
Well, go back and watch those old SNL episodes now. Show them to your kids and see how they react. In fact, see if you still think they are as funny as you did those many years ago. I ran across this Steve Martin clip from a long time ago, when he was new, and oddly enough, using twisting balloons in his act. Take a look and see what you think. Times have certainly changed.
This is just a fun video to watch. The super slow motion really reveals the details of what happens with the balloon, the water and the face. Enjoy!
