Topic: Nice place you have here!
Message: Posted by: BroDavid (Dec 27, 2001 05:10PM)
Although I have posted a few things here and there on the board, I thought I would introduce myself "formally".

I am Bro! aka BroDavid. I got started in Magic about 10 years ago, but only for a couple of years, and now I am back in it again. :hmm:

I originally physically built (as in manufactured) a number of effects for Hampton Ridge Magic. And performed very little. But since geting back into it, although I am working on a number of my own original effects, I find performing much more rewarding now than I ever did before.

I almost exclusively do Street Magic now as a tool for Christian Evangelism. I could go on with more here, but I will go on enough on various topics later, that I will hold up for now.

Thanks to Steve and all those who post here and who make this board a kinder, friendlier kind of Place!

I did a LOT of the prototyping for them in their early years. I would build a few of some items that were low volume, or a lot of some things if Dave couldn't find someone to do it cheaper.

I built Dan Harlan's Color Mixer for quite

awhile, and did a number of Gimmicked Card effects that I don't even remmber the name of. Seems like there was always something we needed to print, or silk screen, or photoprint or something. And I did the Sorcerer's Coffin Matchbox effect, which is probably the only thing that had my name attached to it. :vgoofy:

But Dave moved Hampton Ridge from Akron, Ohio down to West Va, and a short time later, someone broke in, all my Magic was stolen from storage, so I just lost interest in magic.

I did have some fun back then, building and playing with all the new stuff that came along, and I only performed when I wanted to, in Bars for drinks and tips.

Now I have a lot more fun performing with a purpose. And I am again working on a number of effects and gimmicks (for my own use).

Thanks for asking, friend. I haven't thought about some of that stuff in a long time.
