Wife Swap again I hope

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Do you feel you didn't look bad enough the first time around?

Well Gord I think this time I have to look worst. :grin:
But Wife Swap help me get more gigs. Sometimes when I go to a table at one of my many restaurant gigs people freak out that it 's me. It's weird.I was at Taco bell in line and the girl behind the counter started yell and screaming " It's the guy for Wife Swap." It's crazy!
At birthday parties now there's more grown -ups than kids to watch my show.All in all it has been a great experience.

Gord, weren't you even empathetic to their situation?

I was!
Cuz I know no man who is self-employed show business
full-time can ever go and find a normal 9-5 job.
Its totally not in their genetic make-up.

In many ways his childish outbursts made the enitire
thing worthwhile watching.

And my dad, even stayed up and watched the entire thing
and liked it.

My dad would act the same exact way, probably worse.

You know how show business people are with their
mean attitudes, always trying to gett their way
and pouting.

:D

Andrew, I went to vote for you cuz I watched some more episodes my wife had and there are some sickos. The thing is you shouldn't swap for a wife, just have you and your wife followed around.

Me thinks Silver came here solely to get votes, other boards, I don't know how many exist, likely got hit as well....

I've reduced the swap level for my wife for a pack of cards that may have a few cards missing....

Still in Third place. Thanks for all the votes.
If we make it
on the show again this we'll be great for my kids. Eli and Emma love to make movies. They both learned a lot what goes on behind the camera.The Wife Swap crew last time gave them a box movie making goodies( video tape ,gels ect..) My son is going to do something in show business( magic ,juggling ,acting or owning a magic magazine) and my daughter loves art. So you might be helping two future stars.
And this would be great for Genii.
I don't know if you know this but I we do get some money.
Then I can still subscribe to Genii. Also get more books. I would like to get Harry Lorayne's books too.
Oh ,Regal and Bryant's new books too.
Thanks Folks!

Dang Andrew, the more you post the more I think you all need nice quiet counciling more so than being on TV again. Hey! If this fails you can all enter some VH1 show on stage parents! Maybe try to win Flavor Flavs love, a date with New York, you know, all that classy stuff.

I'm going to vote for you Andrew, it was ordained by the powers of the future.

I've a question and maybe you can answer this though your family is a bit different. I've been watching the show cuz of all this and found that virtually all the women involved range from sleightly deranged to full blown insanity (your wife was an exception because on your show you were the nutty one not the wife and they gave you that new wife who was out of her mind). Do these women know they are picked because they are crazy? I mean do they think they are 'normal' and being sent to a nut house family to fix them or do they realize "hey, I'm on this show because I soak all my families food in alcohol to kill spores from Mars before serving them dressed like a Nubian princess though I am of Swedish ancenstory"?

I hope you're not referring to me as "crazy," Steve. I've been doing my work since 1986, and I've helped hundreds of people including the man I went to live with.

There are some of us that have really important things to share with America.

Thanks,

I've not seen the show you were on but taking into consideration the ones I've seen they yes you likely are crazy, either that or your family is, if not you wouldn't have been on the show in the first place. I can assure you of one thing, you were not picked to be on that show because you had jack squat tho share with America, you were there so the majority of the country could be entertained and go to work the next day and say "I'd have horse whipped that woman....she was nuts", again I've not seen you so you may or may not have inspired such a response. Andrews wife was very nice and tolerant, too tolerant, and in his show he was the nut, he almost drove his swapped in wife over the edge and America loved it.

We made it to the second round!

And now Andrew is in a different group, so we're not competing against each-other and you can vote for both of us.

Hello Magi,
It's Melissa Portala, Andrew Martin's wife. I know he's been on here trying to hustle up votes. Kind of like we are all trying to hustle up shows. Anyway, apologies for taking up your time as I am not a magician myself - but I wanted to make a personal request for your votes. I just spoke with the producers at ABC and we are only a few hundred votes behind! Oy! This is how we make our living - and besides being great fun making the show - it was great for our local biz. I could tell you some wonderful stories about Andrew - and how I quit my job to work with him because his job was so much better! But, you all know that there's nothing better than doing magic shows for people. And I will tell you about that if anyone is interested - but if you would please take a moment to vote for us - that would be so appreciated. I love being a part of the magic community - it has brought so much to my life - which you know, if you know our son Eli. So, if you like you can let me know you voted by writing to me at wondermagi@ameritech.net
Thanks!
Melissa Martin-Portala
P.S. Thanks in particular to Steve V. for voting. Yeah - Andrew's a little weird - but that's what I love about him!

I watched your show on Lifetime the other day, Andrew. And I think you have the perfect personality to be a magician - bringing joy to children. That lady was wrong, there's nothing wrong with you being you.

I wish you lots of luck in your future, and I was wondering if you could help us by asking your fellow magicians for their support.

Best wishes,

Sheree Silver
