Well it didn’t take long for the police in sleepy little Maillardville to find the villains responsible for the “vanishing” Jet Ski. In fact they had also “vanished” another Jet Ski, six outboard motors and an aluminum boat! Now they get free accommodations courtesy of the Province!
I got an email today that a magician was arrested for robbing a cash register from a bar while he was drunk. The bummer is that he is a great magician and is a super creative guy who apparently is just down on his luck. The photo that accompanied the article was really shocking and it made me think just how important it is to have friends around you when you decide to let your hair down. Not that letting my hair down includes robbing a bar. SEE ARTICLE
I’ve been asked many times what magic inspire me. Well I love this video by Darren Hayes called “words”. The song is outstanding and the magic is incredible. I hope you are inspired as I am. Inspired to create your own magic and not to just copy as so many have done recently with my “shape of my heart” routine.
Now that you have seen someone interpret a song and apply it to magic, I ask you why do people like Keelan Leyser have to take the song Shape of my Heart and try to do my routine. I point this person out for several reasons. First and foremost he is presenting it on a Norwegian Cruise Ship, the Norwegian Jewel, where I spent the Summer presenting the real version. Secondly when I contacted him to ask him to stop he said he would as he knew I was performing at Blackpool, where he was last years winner, and didn’t want me to make an issue of it while I was on stage and had the audiences attention. Finally because his reasoning is that he had heard of my routine but had never seen me perform and that he got the idea from watching another magician do the routine, who by the way was inspired by my performance. So stealing the idea from someone who stole the idea makes it OK …
Well that said let the comments begin ….
