Back home

Back home

 I finally arrived back home after my trip away. It was an amazing time and got to see some incredible sites. Without a doubt the most memorable was visiting Hiroshima in Japan. I've been a full time magician now for just on twenty two years, since I left teaching and still am amazed at the places I get to travel in the world. I still feel like a kid with a dream to one day travel the world performing my magic - just like I read about my magic idols doing when I was a kid. I never take any gig for granted, or the face that clients are willing to fly me around the world to see my act. While the travel is exhausting it is still very rewarding. Next month I'm off to India, then back to China for another corporate show!

Here are a few photos from Hiroshima I'd like to share with you this week.

The Atom bomb went off just above this building (about 100 meters) and believe it or not, as you can see in the photo everything else around it was destroyed, but part of the building was left standing. The photo above on the right shows how it looked prior to the bombing and how it looked afterwards. 

Here's another photo of a castle that was just lovely.


By this time next week you'll be able to download for FREE the very first issue of VANISH Magic Magazine. This is definitely my best work yet. The magazine is filled with great articles that will help you take your magic business to higher levels. I've started performing two of the effects in there already. Andrew Gerard's routine is KILLER that he shares, and there are two gems by Ken Ring and Wayne Rogers. Also, Diamond Jim Tyler has something that you'll perform every time you have a Red Bull!! It's filled with cool tricks, marketing ideas and articles that will make you think. It's a whopping 75 pages. Stay tuned folks:) If you haven't already joined my free newsletter do so, that way you can be the FIRST to download the free magazine. As soon as it's ready I send out a newsletter letting you know that it's ready.


This week I've been on the phone to my good friends at Hocus-Pocus and Paul told me about the top sellers. He can't stop talking about The Vanishing. Mine is on it's way. This week here are the top picks from Hocus-Pocus.

The Vanishing


 It's another Hocus Pocus exclusive!

Pre-order yours today. FREE SHIPPING ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD! Expected release date is last week of March or sooner.

"I almost hate to admit this, but when The Vanishing was presented to me, I couldn't figure out how it was done. Seriously, it both drove me crazy and excited me, and this is what makes The Vanishing such an outstanding effect. PLUS, it's easy to learn. What you see is exactly what you get, there is no special editing on this video!"
- Paul Gross, owner Hocus Pocus.

NO special clothing requirements!

Preface: This utility device will allow you to do miracles when it comes to vanishing an object or making it travel from one place to another. It is light to carry and can fit in your wallet. It's not bulky, and no necessary clothing requirements are needed. You can even use this gimmick naked if you wanted to.

Chapter 1: The magician borrows a small object, a coin, ring, etc. There are no switches, and the exact same coin is used the entire time. With a slow wave over the coin, it effortlessly vanishes. No funny movements, no sudden sleights. The coin is COMPLETELY gone. The spectator can FEEL your hands to make sure there's nothing there; because there is nothing...

At this point, you can either choose to end there, or continue, and make the coin reappear again on your hand or in theirs. You then hand out their coin for examination and leave them with a signed coin they'll never forget.

Chapter 2: The magician borrows a tic tac box and a tic tac. There are no switches whatsoever, and there are no alterations on the box or the tic tac. You cleanly place the tic tac inside of the box. And with no sudden movements, the tic tac visually melts through the bottom, and landing on your spectator's cupped hand. They can then immediately examine the tic tac and the box.

Chapter 3: The magician proceeds to use an ordinary coffee cup, and asks the spectator for a dollar bill (or anything that can be crumpled up into a ball). He cleanly places the cup over the ball. With NO movements whatsoever, he snaps his fingers and the ball is gone. You can then proceed to continue with your regular cups and balls routine; or you can continue to use the gimmick to make it a devastating cups and balls routine.


Micro Psychic by Nakashima Kengo and Kreis - FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!  

Micro Psychic was one of the hits of the 2012 Blackpool Convention.

See why Micro Psychic has received rave reviews and comments from Charlie Frye, Michael Weber, Gaetan Bloom and many other top names in magic.

A spectator screws a nut onto a bolt about half way up and then you hold it at your fingertips. The audience can always see your empty hands. Suddenly the nut starts to rotate and unwind off the bolt and finally drops off the end. It looks like some ghostly power is unscrewing the nut and bolt. It can be done visually or under a cup or handkerchief.

A question asked, an answer given and a bell mysteriously rings.

For centuries, this mystic event has taken place in parlors, in the tents of roaming Gypsies and in temples throughout the world.

The Spirit Bell is one of the most heart stopping effects in magic. The bell sits on the table in full view of everyone.

As a question is asked and answered, without a hand touching it, the bell rings out confirming the answer is a lie or a truth.

  • Small Attaché Case w/ foam insert
  • Wireless Remote Controlled
    This Spirit Bell is LARGER and LOUDER than any Spirit Bell we've seen before. Perfect for large venues because it can be both seen (the bell visibly swings) and heard (with a very loud ring).

    Turn the lights down and call up the spirits for a chilling illusion!

    The brass Spirit Bell by itself measures 3 x 3 inches.
