Last Thursday, I took dad out to Elmhurst at the
Historical Museum where the Chicago Magic Tour
Exhibit is held. Took two hours and interviewed
dad in front of his display.
I felt it was the perfect back drop instead of
being at home in a recliner with a boring wall.
Take advantage of the exhibit right?
We talked about many things including::
Being on the Blackstone & Dante Show
and how it came about
Being Friends with:
Okito, kuma tubes and his robes
Jack Gwynne, World's Fair, Chinese Opera Scenery
Dr. Tarbell and being in Volume 6
(then talking about seeing the effect performed by Criss Angel on Mindfreak)
George Johnstone and talking about the first comedy-magic duo Johnstone & O'Rouke
Working at Ireland Magic, Magic, Inc., Ed Miller's shop
Jay Marshall, Frances Ireland, Ed Miller
Building Illusions and inventing effects and Illusions
including "The Travel" as talked about in Jim Steinmeyer's
"Technique & Understanding"
The Light Bulb Cabinet
(all eight and Orson Wells)
The first motorized Levitation
The first to color doves in primary colours
building the miniature illusions
I plan to go back again to do another one and
touch on other topics and go more indepth on specific
Like combining fishing and magic.
But while I'm at it, I'd thought I throw out the options
for others to ask questions they would like to know.
This is part of my ongoing book project and wanted to
do something different and interactive.
And would like to include others to part take if they like.
