Hope to see you there.
In my real job I had a great boss, mentor and friend who would stop by my office and ask What do you know for sure? I would just laugh and respond with some witty retort. After a while I thought about it and began to wonder what did I know for sure?
When Mark asked me if Id be interested in doing a lecture, I said I would and shortly thereafter began thinking about what I would do for the lecture. I knew I wanted it to be something more than just a bunch of tricks. We all know way too many tricks already. I began to think about what I wanted to say with the lecture. What did I have to say? What did I know? What did I know for sure?
I sat down and made a list. In no time I had a list of 10 things I knew for sure about magic and this lecture was born. I should mention I stopped the list when I hit 10. The list could have been longer but I only wanted to include the things that I felt gave me a strong foundation in studying and successfully performing magic.
In this lecture Ill go through each of the 10 things I know and why I feel theyre important. I will illustrate most of them with effect using cards, ropes, eggs and including the marketed effects In The Hands Wild Card and OiATER. (www.chicagomagicbash.com) The trick explanations in the lecture will be brief but thorough. You will be able to learn a few of the effects during the lecture itself.
In going through this process I came to the realization that theres an even longer list of things I still dont know for sure about magic. I would suggest that everyone take the time to create their own lists. I wouldnt be the least bit surprised if it were quite different from mine.
I hope you both enjoy and get some useful information from this lecture. Oh and the next time we meet: Id love to see your lists.
