Ok, So another member has done something to give me a brilliant start to 2018, Atlas Brookings has done this with no thought of reward and it is a complete selfless, random act of kindness.
This has got me thinking.... and I would like to do something nice for someone else and pass on the kindness so somebody else has a good start to their new year!
I have decided to put together a 'mystery box' of effects and such things that I will give to another member for free with nothing to pay not even the postage.
This is for people new to magic, people just starting out on there magical journey, to be in with a chance of being chosen, all you have to do is tell the café what got you started in magic, what you want to achieve and who you look up to in the industry. That's it.
I will then pick some one and post out the 'Mystery box'
a winner will be drawn on 31st of January.
Good luck and happy new year.

That's such a cool idea Smile
I started because of my uncle, he was a magician, he lived in the states so I didn't get to see him much, but I was visiting him a few years ago and got to see his act and it was amazing, and after his show he told me that everything I need to know about magic passes in the family, and that really lingered with me until I thought I'd try to venture a little into it.
I'd really like to be able to table hop in a bar, that looks so amazing to me when I see magicians do it on videos, and it will probably help me with my extrem introversion Smile
As for magicians I really love Richard Osterlind and Dani DaOrtiz, IMO they are both giants with so much knowledge and abilities

Nice gesture, Luke👍
I’ve been registered on here for a little over 3 years now. Still an absolute beginner, mainly due to stopping and starting with it. I started my path after watching my little boys face watching a magician in a restaurant and thinking I’ve always been interested in magic, why not give it a go. Well this year I’m determined to put a lot more time in and get to a point where I’d be confident in doing a little demonstration later in the year. Long term goals would be to just enjoy it and keep it up, if nothing comes of it i.e making money from it, then I’m fine with that. I look up to anyone that’s put the time in to be able to go out there and show people what it’s all about

Wow that's so nice Luke, hi I'm 16 years old and I'm a mentalist. I always saw magicians in camp and online and some random party's it never came to me that I would like it one day. until 3 years ago I watched a mentalist perform he was great since then I always wished to be able to read minds. one day I told my dad about my dream and he told me that very mentalist I saw was in his class years before. a month later I met this mentalist he showed me how to do some stuff since then I was hooked.i bought stuff, watched videos from every mentalist I like most Luke jermay, Colin cloud,Marc spelmann,Richard osterlind. last year was my first time I entered a talent show for a local org. I ended up winning 200 bucks! this year exactly a year later I got booked my first gig! it was a 15 min. show and I made 150 bucks. I'm hoping to grow learn more and keep on getting gigs until I can make up my own effects and one day teach them to the great magic and mentalism community that is so nice helping and caring.

Wow! That's really cool, Luke. I am in!

I have always been interested in cardistry, but mostly as an viewer of Magic shows in Spanish TV. Last year I decided to learn more into it and move from the layman into the apprentice stage.

Basically, what I want to achieve short term is just some basic skills that would allow me to put together a routine to entertain family and friends. If I see this works my next step would be to step out into some voluntary "shows" in hospitals and day care centers. I do not plan to become a professional and make a living out of Magic

My references is the industry are the cardicians from the Spanish school, and to name the top three: Juan Tamariz, Pepe Carrol (R.I.P) and Dani Daortiz.

I keep my fingers crossed. ;o)
Can you keep a secret?.....So can I ;o)

A very good friend of mine by in Hollywood, Calif. the name of Jose Frakson(now passed) - told me how he went to do a weeks gig at a night club- When the mgr. saw Jose was carrying only a small case(lunchbox size) the mgr. said NO WAY - Jose asked the mgr. to give him a one nite chance - Jose did 20 minute of Magic using only coins -card-cigeretts(now use chaulk or tootsie rolls) silks -small balls - etc-. After the show - Jose got a 6 week (plus??) - gig. Small stuff will work. Good Luck.

Although it feels like this months gone on forever, I suppose there’s still a couple of weeks for people to get involved
