"It fooled me"!

Penguin Magic's newsletter...

"Fooled me bad. And not just once. More like 100 times!"
"I performed this live on stage the same day I got it, then non-stop."
"Almost everything is a magician fooler. I love this!"
"I have no idea how it's done, and none of my friends do either."
"A prediction trick that'll get you a standing ovation."
"For the first time ever, she was TOTALLY FOOLED."
"This trick fools magicians bad. Then they cry. It gets weird."
"That fooled the %@#& out of me!"

I sense a pattern in the force. Did you get it? Did you?

Yes, most of them are CARD TRICKS...
Nothing wrong with that of course. For the most part.

Some people died

One being a mentalist, the other one an optimist. And what is so sickening is the fact that honest tweets, post and prayers are being undermined to further the personal agenda of certain magicians who start their message by dropping "I", "me" and "my".

"I couldn't have been so great if it wasn't for him. Btw... See my new show at the casino tonight."

Name-dropping is low. But ego-dropping is lowest.

Hey there, long time no see

Man it was good to not care about the magic community for a while. I feel much much better. For the last few months I have been concentrating on a lot of new projects. My theater is running well. I lost 36 kilograms, I created yet another 90 minute close up show. This time based around the magic scene of the 1900s. Very "Jules Vernesque" in style.

I have not read any magic forums, I have not seen any magic news. Listened to no podcast and basically didn't give a flying fuck about the community. I feel like my batteries are back up to 100%. Awesome!

Now back to some magic topics: I have been going through what is new in terms of magic products. So Sans Mind released the VAPR Watch. A watch that blows smoke. So I guess its a cool little gadget for those who don't mind having a HUGE block of something on their wrist.

Sans Mind had their own little crowd funding thing going on to get the initial watches funded.... or something like that. It seems like Sans Mind has been selling those watches at Blackpool but failed to send them to all of those who participated in the crowd funding campaign first. If that is true.... bad business practice.

Coming up next... A magician who deserves the award of this blog's title.

Blackpool where magic and stupidity meets

So Saturday night, and a former marine soldier and boyfriend of a magician thought it was a good idea to to climb the roof of the main Winter Gardens cafe. He did survive, he fractured his pelvis and broke his wrist. At least to my knowledge. At least something happened at Blackpool this year, that is worth mentioning.

Status

There may have been a huge lack of posts for one year. And I'm afraid will be like this.

Truth be told: I was and am too fed up with the magic community. I decided to stay away. And it turns out it has been way better on my mental health, but even better on my magic. I concentrated all my magic effort on my theater. I have four running shows, two shows on hiatus and one show in production. I've been busy. During Christmas I did two to three shows a day, adding up to about 70 shows. The aftermath of that exposure of course is more shows. So the last few months I've been performing mostly. It is an intense time in my life, where I got little time and little interest in the magic community as a whole.

And posting on this blog was a huge time sink. All the research that went into a 200 word post was often a week or so. I don't have that anymore. Nor am I in the mood.

Is this the end of this blog? Perhaps? I'm not ruling out to return one day. But so far.... farewell!
