Re: Castle Friday Luncheon or Saturday Brunch

Hey pal! Friday Lunch and Saturday Brunch are two completely different animals. Both require dressing up, a little. We did recently completely necessarily tighten up our dress code requirements, which now prevents guys in T-shirts and flip flops from strolling in with their kids still wet from the M...

I saw a lot of guys paying full price for these at Magic Live. Sadly, I left mine at home. Still available.

Re: FS: Kevin James Instant Magician

To answer some questions - Yes, it's new. It's made of a material similar to that used in high end Halloween costumes. It folds very small. Ken Scott's version is made from a real tux, and folds as small as a real tux. As the ad says, it starts out looking like a little black bag. You put a deck of ...

FS: Kevin James Instant Magician

Hey, gang! I have a brand new, unused Kevin James version of Instant Magician. It's the version that packs very, very small. Like all versions, it plays very big. It comes with 30 minutes of tips, gags, and routine ideas. It's 6-10 minutes of comedy gold and is most often done to music. How often do...

Re: Zombie Gripe

If we're bitching about Zombie moves, let's also include the one where you set the ball on the crook of your elbow, and it magically stays in place. Possibly because most magicians appear to be screwing it on.

I Need a Duck Bucket

Gang -

The title says it all.

I need a duck bucket for the week of November 17th. I can have it back to you on the 21st. If you have one, or know of anyone who does, I'm looking to beg, borrow, buy, or rent one for a few days.

Cheers,

Re: ”used” illusions

I have acquired a mildly Western themed illusion show, and have several illusions for rent (or, possibly, sale). Most of them were built by high end builders, are in good shape, and John Gaughan has kindly offered to look over and refurbish anything as needed, and, if you want to rent one of them, I...

WMS Room Needed! Are you cancelling? I'LL TAKE YOUR ROOM!

Gang - Dave Cox, here. To spark a memory, I'm the guy who usually demonstrates the swell stuff at the Magic Castle Juniors benefit auction at the WMS. Also, I have an Evil Hypnotist Monkey. My lodgings fell through for this year's WMS, and I'm looking for a room. If you're backing out, have more roo...

Re: Illusions for Lease (or sale)

Hey, gang -
Thanks for all the inquiries. I should have some pictures of the illusions available shortly. We just hit the rainy season here in LA, which, as you can imagine, shouldn't last long.

Re: Best chop cup?

Gang - Just a couple of quick thoughts on this thread: 1) Thomas Wayne's coffee chop cup. It's freaking awesome. I played with it at the WMS, and I bought two. The magnetic features in the balls and the cups are, without exagerating, revolutionary; the way the magnets aren't harmed by warm liquids (...

The gimmick in question was called "The Direct Link" and was put out by John Anders of the Netherlands, with the aid and permission of Tommy Wonder and Alex deCova. The package, including gimmick and video, was $80, delivered. OK, two folks sent me emails kindly pointing out that the Mirag...

What's it called? Belly Servante/In your pocket thing...

A few years ago I was delighted and chagrined to see that someone had put out something I had "invented" as a youth - I also "invented" the Mirage Deck, and, I thought, using toilet paper for comedy effect, but those were heady days, my friends, heady days. I can't seem to recall...

On the topic of "bad" watch steals - in the early 80's the great Harry Blackstone Jr. was playing somewhere in Central Illinois (or, perhaps, St. Louis), and my father took me on the long drive to see him. My good ol' dad, also a magician, was chosen to be part of the committee. He played ...

Does anyone recall the issue of Genii that had several marvelous variations of Steinmeyer's Nine Card Mystery? I've got every issue stacked up from 1992 to present - please save me several delicious hours.
