Tru dat Mista K. It was a very enjoyable day, Brent did a great job scheduling the lectures because they complemented each other and the transition was seamless. The connecting thread was Slidini since both Tony and Meir were students of this great magician, and Johnny Thompson did a hilarious imitation of Slidini doing the Balls Over the Head.
Tony led off with a vast compendium of his masterful magic and concluded with his brilliant Gypsy Balloon routine, and interspersed between the two were true gems of advice on motivation and execution.
I still don't believe what I saw from Meir and his finger manipulations, must be seen to be believed. He continued with many doable card and coins stuff; you must see his coin vanish, it fooled everyone even though he graciously repeated it over and over until the crowd begged him to show how it was done!
Johnny led off with a dove production that even had Tony Clark up and off his chair, it was truly amazing. It didn't take Johnny long to have the whole crowd eating out of the palm of his hands with interspersed references to many of the greats past and present.
If you couldn't make it to this year's Day of Lectures you missed a once in a lifetime event, make sure you don't miss the next one because I'm sure Brent has already started planning for next year. I really don't know how he does it but I hope he keeps the magic going at the Day of Lectures 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.....
Life is a journey, so do not arrive at your grave safe and in a well preserved body. Enjoy the Ride!
