Hey, it seems this particular "style" isn't going away for a while. Might as well help them do things right.

Not previously Steve, but it seems like folks enjoy it, and it opens up new opportunities for me to amaze people. Since getting back into magic recently, I've been trying to work on effects which leave 'em gasping, then I just leave.

My Dad took me to see Blackstone Jr, which was very cool since he saw Blackstone Sr when he was a child. He also took me to see James Randi perform, which was great. Lately, although I don't like their use of stooges and camera positioning, I have to admit I like Criss Angel and David Blaine (insert groans here). What I like about them is that when they perform on the street, although they may do what ~we~ know of as typical magician's tricks, it comes off as something new, something fresh, to these "street" audiences.

And yes, I'm 40--say didn't Copperfield just buy the Fountain of Youth?? I may have to visit that island, LOL.

Scott <-- I'm from Oxnard, CA originally...I lived in JAX in '72 when Dad was in Thailand/Laos (but that's another story).

Ya know, the first magic show I went to was Blackstone Jr when he played the Caféteria of my school back around 1968 or 69. That was what got me interested in magic, great show.

Well there are exceptions to every rule and the one person who was "on" 24/7/365 (no holidays) was Tony Andruzzi. He WAS Masklyne ye Mage - a sorcerer - a guy who could and would, scare the daylights out of any and everyone, while cackling that patented cackle of his while he did it.

But he was the exception that tests the rule.

VERY few, if any of us, could handle that kind of a role. He was the bizarrist's bizarrist. And also one of the funniest comedy mages in history (before he went "bizarre") in his earlier role as Tom Palmer, where he also lived THAT role 24/7.

Just to show that it CAN be done.
