After watching my local magic club (Denver, CO) present there Bizarre Magic Show last night, I have vowed to develope and do a piece next year ...

there were some really great performances and I realized that I really enjoy watching bizarre magic ... it's just that I could never see myself doing it, but now I know that I need to expand my mind ...

Well you're already on your way. The goodfellow act you presented at the last PCAM already qualifies you for entry into the ranks of the Bizarre. Atg least by some peoples definition.
I never thought of myself as a practioner until someone explained to me that Bizarre didin't have to be dark or occult in nature.

Danny,
As a magician you are crossing over already loaded with a good supply of magic and how it works. So for starters I would take the things you have been doing for yrs and dress them up a bit, add a strange tale. Present this effect not to someone that knows you as a magician but someone that has NO idea you are a magician. I am certain that the facial expression alone will act as a hook into the bizarre! Glad to see you in the forum Danny and good luck!

Yes !
Another convert ! muahahaa !!
Just wait til you see our initiation ceremony !
( 00Ps !! I shouldn't have let that black cat out of the bag. )

Seriously though, glad to see a pro of your caliber taking an interest.
While I'd never want to see bizarre get too commercial, or mainstream, or common, it warms my blood to see the gradual acceptance and interest in the genre.
Now if you'll excuse me I gotta go drink a cold pint of type O negative, I like my blood slightly chilled .. Smile
Just hanging out with the rest of my fellow dregs.

Not a good idea. Having a convention of bizartists means bringing all these crazy guys to one location, which could open a door to the dimensions of evil and let loose all sorts of horrid beings on earth! Hey, that's not a bad idea for a Bizartist promo! You could offer a prize to the first local resident who sights a demon wandering loose on the streets.

Good Tidings Danny!

The Bizarre community here on the Café and off the Café is wonderful. Oh sure we are sometimes odd, but that is part of our charm.

Looking forward to hearing more of your thoughts. As I see it, Bizarre Magick is very much creating an art that evokes a wide range of emotions, multiple senses, and engenders contemplation. Some of my material is a bit scary, some is based on a message. I use all sorts of material to draw presentations or stories - mythology, urban legends, philosophers, history, horror, fiction, poetry, etc.

The dark stuff is fun and is kind of a bonding language so we talk about it quite a bit. But certainly, any topic could be handled artfully and we'd love to hear about it! For example, someone posted a very powerful routine on the Gospel forum which I would definitely classify as Bizarre!

Good luck in your new adventure and we are all here for support!
