For that particular Asrah, do you have to use the corpse supplied? Or can you use your own? What about a borrowed corpse?

That is the most enjoyable magic show I have ever seen!
I normally don't laugh out loud... but this is a real gem. Smile

That was just what I needed to perk my day up! Just Hilarious!

I have a portable Lipan Asrah that I purchased for a 'Theatre in the Park' type performance of 'Les Fourberies de Scapin' where I played a 'shadow' image of the lead and I used magic/ illusion to link the scene changes and act breaks while also playing a 'devil on your shoulder type' figure. I never did use it because the stage conditions at most venues were not as ideal as the Director led me to believe. I also was having a very hard time working with the actors involved to make it look good enough to present before a crowd. It also was one of those times (sadly) when I realized that many people see our art as just a 'trivial curiosity' not worthy of the rehearsal needed to perfect and present realistically. NO MORE BAD MAGIC was a vow I made to myself after seeing too many horrid performances in my area and when I traveled and I wasn't about to add to it.

This winter a close friend gave me his mother's 'cremation urn' after they had scattered her ashes and he told me maybe I could do something weird with it or pull a ghost out of it. This of course got the wheels turning and my mind thinking about the 'Lipan Levitation' sitting in my magic closet and what other things it might be used for and that's where the my idea of 'Catching a Ghost' was born.

Many of my friends and guests gather at a special log cabin in the WI, North Woods several times during the spring and summer and many people thru-out the years have had their ashes scattered on this piece of land. I plan to present my new incarnation of 'Possible Impossibilities'- (Spirit Theatre) after dinner one evening this spring for a group of 10-12. I also plan on bringing up the cremation urn and trying out "Catching a Ghost" for the first time. I am excited to see their response and also confronting the challenges of presenting this without appearing hokey or tongue in cheek. I will report back with my results and hopefully a video clip.

Thank you for posting this very silly 'You Tube' video.
