Metal Gear NES

Well, this weekend I am coming out with a new video. It's going to be a "My First Time" thing where I play the classic NES title: Metal Gear!

I'll be posting the finished video here and on YouTube.

On another note, my favorite Japanese television programme, Game Center CX, is coming stateside under the title: Retro Game Master.

Let's see how badly the bungle this translation up, eh?

Mah Magic Blog

I'll still be posting some stuff about me learning magic here, but I have a blog just for that. Look to the right side for the link.

Anyways, I just joined S.A.M.!

Society for

Not only that, but I also joined the local group. Now, I have a place to practice and learn every month. The guys in the group are really nice and patient. I screwed up a trick this month in front of all of them, but they were very genuine and supportive at my being new.

The president of the local S.A.M. group even offered to teach me fire-eating (although Jen thinks it's too dangerous).

I used to think that she was just being silly, but it's nice to know that I have someone so close to me that she wants to spend as much time with me HEALTHY as she can.

She and I have been talking about (you know... when I get good in a year or so) of doing a husband-wife act. She actually suggested that she be my assistant!

Take a WILD guess as to what the act would be?

Yup, a Mad Hatter/Alice act.

I'm coming up with tricks and illusions as we speak. It would be a TON of fun.

We got the idea from one of the performers from Loveland. His hat was perfect! I need it!

Had a GREAT weekend

The big event was going to the Masters Of Magic in Loveland Colorado this Saturday afternoon. I don't know if many of you have been to Loveland, but it's a pretty little town. They happened to have a festival that weekend, but we (Jen and I) went up for the magic!

We got to see many wonderful entertainers... dove man Dan Sperry, 17 year old heartbreaker Krystyn Lambert, Denver magician of 8 years Jack Stephens... it was a LOT of fun and some VERY good magic.

One of my favorite tricks was done by Reza... who made a motorcycle appear in 3.5 seconds!

But my favorite of all was Dan Sperry's dove conjuring. He was the sh*t.

And I got their autographs in a particular way.... like I tend to get autographs. I mean who else has George Takei's autograph on a bulbasaur?

Penn Jillette and Teller have a way of doing a "pick-a-card" trick that they "fail" and then reveal the card in some cool way. They even have a cemetery plot with a card reveal on it. "Is this your card?"

So I gave all the magicians (and some of their assistants) a card and had them autograph them "Is this your card?" with their autographs. I got them printed out and put them into a folder...

I plan on showing it off a lot (laughs). Here's Dan Sperry and Krystyn Lambert. As usual, click on them to see the bigger images.

But that wasn't all. When they found out that I was practicing magic... talk about wanting to know more about me! They all supported me in trying to do a renaissance magic act next year, Reza and his crew gave me tips on how to find gigs, Joe and Carol Givan got me hooked up with the people at to come to the "Magic in the Rockies" convention in September... and Jack Stephens gave me some words of encouragement as well. They were all super wonderful people.

So I am super stoked to get an act together for the Renaissance Festival next year for walk-around traditional close-up magic.

And now I have a convention to look forward to. Perhaps I can talk Derek into going for a day or two.
