Here's a question for ya.
What would you do if you had REAL magic powers?
Not just the power of your sleights and gimmicks but REAL magic powers.
You can do ANYTHING.
What effects would you perform?
Stage, parlour, close up, anywhere.
What would you do?

No, but really, I'll give that a little thought and answer back.

What a crazy thought, "Lord of Illusions" video comes to mind. A horror movie where a magician gains real power, however, the power is evil.

I'd make a new sawing in half illusion!

I guess I would go back in time and fry Dai Vernon with an ambitious card routine! Smile

I'll keep thinking on this one...It's a great idea!

I think I would walk around making some lofty boasts about this or that, targeting the 15-45 year old demographic, waiting for someone to respond to one of my presumptions with, "Right. When monkeys fly outta my butt."

:devilish:

And I'd be sure to use those big scary flying monkeys like in the Wizard of Oz.

And also conjure up some of that scary monkey-flying-music to go with it. Doo-doo-DOO-doo-doo-doooooo.

Then I'd make the guy some new pants. Possibly a new butt as well.

Like what, Ich?
Give me details.
When I was younger I always wanted to be able to say, "think of ANYTHING you like"
and then tell them, straight off the bat what it was they thought of.
This would be unnerving.

When it comes to bizarre stuff...
I'm not big on this.
What would you do?
Cut your head off, eat a sandwich and then put it back on?
That could be interesting.

Details, details...

If you had magical powers the last thing you would want / need to do, would be to perform.

I would do a russian roulette routine with borrowed guns, I would do a cut & restored animal act, I would .............cure all the sick people in the world & Make sure that everyone, everywhere had a good life.

Well said, sir.
I could not agree with you more.

If I had the time to type out the contents of my imagination in response to my own question, I would.
And I'm sure I'd leave a lot of people looking like this: Smile

Oh, I’d probably do some of the standard stuff, you know, like walk on water, turn water to wine (or Guinness), cure the blind, predict which stocks are going to make it (woops, changed my mind, not predict for the public, but rather invest in them! And, er..do good with the money I’d earn…yeah, that’s it, do good!), and so forth.

I would hope to keep it subtle enough to not be stoned, burned, or nailed to a tree!

Real magical powers? Wow! With no limitations? That is an easy one! If I had real magical powers every child in the world would be fed, safe and happy.

And if I had real magical powers I would still be home working on my sleights and moves, because it would just not be any fun otherwise Smile
Thank you,

I think I'd give people three wishes and see what REALLY happens when someone's given that opportunity. Maybe put some of those joke conditions on the granting (ala whatever you wish for, your mother-in-law gets twice as much... I want to be beaten half to death! - Just kidding, I love my mother-in-law).

I'd be sitting on a sunny beach, Helena Bonham Carter by my side, giving guitar lessons to Eddie Van Halen, and counting obscene amounts of money.

Would I do magic - nah!! That said, I'd love to perform a trick to Marlo that even he couldn't think of a method for!

I'd make a few people permanently disappear, like George Bush, Osama Bin Laden, my other evil half, and the voices in my head....
If anyone sees my sanity, please return it to

I'd make the leaves jump back onto the trees in my garden and stop this awful rain here in UK. Seriously though - time travel! Not necessarily to events before I was born - although it would be nice to give my mum and dad (both sadly gone) a lovely 5th birthday party each. I'd like to go back and edit my life, - to return a smile and a flash of the eyes to those pretty girls I missed first time around. I'd like to pick up anyone I may have trod on in my desire to succeed! Hey this is more like going to confession - which I last did about age 13. Smile
