Hello Everyone,

I have a special announcement! As most of you know, I write the Magic Friday Column here on the Café and it has been, I'm proud to say, quite popular. So much so that it's being picked up by a brand new magazine called Street Magic which is being put out by Café member James Clark of Blacksmagicgroup. Not only will I be writing Magic Friday S.E. (Street Edition) but I also hope to take on a bigger writing role and contribute some larger pieces.

Aside from Magic, one of my biggest passions (I hope you can tell) is Writing, so to be published in a wide release publication is a major goal for me and I'm really happy about it. However, it brings a bit of sad news as well, as Magic Friday here on the Café will now only be once a month, after a couple month hiatus, with the remaining three appearing in Street Magic.

I want everyone here on the Café to know that I appreciate all the comments and thoughts people have sent me over the last few years (especially over the last few weeks with the whole Ripleys thing). Obviously, I owe a massive debt of gratitude to Steve Brooks for giving me my column here as it has opened doors I never knew existed. Steve, Thank You- I'll still be writing MF's here from time to time and I plan on taking a larger role in the forums at large. I'm also hoping that this new position will help me along with the release of my future book: the definitive guide on how to be a bike messenger and a magician to billionaires, and perhaps send me off onto the lecture circuit one day-who knows. I'll find out on Friday...

p.s. Everyone should now PM James Clark and tell him what a great decision he's made, lol.

p.p.s. If you have any comments about the magazine or have effects you'd like to see performed out in the real world, please e-mail me at: jgrant@streetmagicmagazine.com

Hi Again,

I'm also thinking of adding a 'History' paragraph to the column which would, obviously, talk about any applicable crediting and origins. So if you know your magic effect history, let me know!

I think this is a great thing for you! Congratulations!

However, I'm also disappointed, personally. The Magic Friday posts were about the only thing out there that related to how I mostly perform; pulling something out to show a few friends at work (or similar circumstances). Street magic - I get that it's popular in some circles, but it's not something I have much interest in, and certainly not something I'd ever do.

Anyway, best wishes in the new gig!

Thanx honus- The Magic Fridays will still be the same, though. I just won't be reviewing anything like the Ketchup Trick for the magazine (that stuff will come here) but, for the most part, most of my MF's are what I consider 'Street' anyways-standing, with no table. You'll just have to buy the magazine now as well as read it here on the Café, that's all...

;)

Hi All,

Today completes my first three Magic Friday S.E.'s for the new magazine (Street Magic) so Magic Friday will be returning to the Café next week. I don't have a solid schedule of how it's going to work so please bear with me in the meantime. There'll be three Magic Friday S.E.'s for each issue but it's coming out every second month for the first year so you should still see it pretty regularly here on the Café...

Cheerio,

jamie

Jamie,

Always look forward to your Magic Fridays. They really give GREAT insight as to how effects can play out with specs in an impromptu or street magic type of setting.

Congrats on writing for Street Magic! I'll look forward to reading your column there and continuing to see your posts here at the Café.

Good job, and continued success!
