Imagine if the photos in your favorite magazine (that would be SCORE, of course) could move. I’m not talking about those old-time flip books, the ones filled with pictures on pages that you’d flip from front to back real fast to simulate motion (“Those were great,” Elliot James just said). Elliot also just said, “They were going to make porno flip books, then video came along and ruined everything!” Elliot, are you a hundred years old or something?
Anyway, I used to read SCORE and Voluptuous and wonder what it would be like to have video imbedded in the magazine. Then, because that was impossible, we started including DVDs with the newsstand edition of the magazines (and now, we also offer a subscription that includes magazine and bonus DVD). So that was the perfect combination of photos and video.
And now…the even-more-perfect combination of photos and video: the digital edition of the July ’12 issue of SCORE with videos imbedded in the pictorials. For example, you’re digitally flipping through the pictorial of Melissa Manning when you come upon that instantly recognizable video arrow. You click it. And a video starts playing!
Yep, the digital version of the July ’12 issue of SCORE, available for only $8.99 at eBoobStore.com, includes five videos imbedded in the magazine: solos of Charley Green and Melissa, tit-to-tit of Valory Irene and Lana Ivans and XXX boy-girls with Kelly Christiansen and Stephanie Stalls.
“They’re very cool,” Elliot said. He should know. He was around when flip books were hip.
