Jeff and his wife Rachel are moving to Bolivia to serve as volunteers at the Life Center Orphanage in the city of Cochabamba, where they’ll no doubt be entertain the children with awesome balloon creations like this. Visit their website to learn more about their charitable efforts.

Behold the inflatable wonder that is Balloon Mario riding Balloon Yoshi. When is Nintendo going to make a Super Mario Bros. game that looks like this?

Remember that awesome Balloon Buzz Lightyear costume we posted about back in May? It was created and modeled by a gifted balloon-twisting artist name Jeff Wright. We just discovered that Jeff made this playful costume too. We are officially impressed.

The only thing missing is a balloon Koopa Troopa shell for Balloon Mario and Yoshi to kick around. That is, assuming Balloon Mario wouldn’t pop himself in the process.

Self Defence or Evil?
Susan Wright

On the 13th of January 2003 in Houston, Texas, former topless dancer Susan Wright lured her husband Jeff Wright in to their bedroom. Once inside she tied him up and stabbed him 193 times, Susan buried the body in her back garden but before handing herself in on the 24th of that month she painted their room and filed a domestic abuse claim. 

At trial in 2004, Susan Wright’s defence was claiming that Jeff Wright came back from a cocaine binge and started to become violent and punched their young son. Whereas the prosecution described Wright as a manipulative woman who lured her husband to his death to claim his $200,000 life insurance policy. 

Susan Wright was found guilty of murder in 2004 and sentenced to 25 years in prison. A retrial in 2010 saw another ex parter of Jeff’s claim he was also abusive to her. Susan Wright’s sentence was cut to 20 years, making her parole eligible from 2014.
