Discuss the historical aspects of magic, including memories, or favorite stories.

I don't often post here, but thought that some of you might be interested in a short essay I added to my blog.

It shows an item which you may have seen before in the Malini book - Max Malini's calling card.

Also, while you're at my blog ( blog.chambermagic.com ) please take a look at some other items which may be of interest to magicians.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Excellent on two counts.

1) Great story
2) I didn't know you blogged and have added it to my rss client :)

I came to see your show last year and it was just wonderful. I'd recommend anyone anywhere near NY to go.

Thank you, Mr. Goat.

I've just added another blog post - this one chronicles the trick known as "Any Drink Called For," or "The Inexhaustible Bottle."

You can visit it here

Happy holidays!

Congratulations, Steve. A nice addition. This would have been Malini's second wife. Ozzie once told me that they had their reception at the White House, Max being friends with the President at the time. I believe it was Harding, but I'm not certain.
