It is April. In celebration of this blogs one year existence, the whole month will be winner time. Only the coolest and best members of our elite circle of nerds will be featured.
Today: Al Schneider!
You wanna know who's awesome? I tell you who's awesome. Al Schneider, he is awesome.
And here is the thing. I don't even like his magic. But it is well thought out, strong stuff.
As you can see, his patter is not really a thing of beauty, but damn this is strong stuff. His moves are deceptive and his style is very elegant and old school. He such a great thinker. I suggest you take a look at that man.
While I cannot imagine myself doing any of the stuff he does he might have something for you. It may be a move, a finesse, a subtle feint or even a whole new concept to think about.
Here is what I like: He gets to the point. He actually does what he is supposed to do. Doing magic. And not just talking like MOST other magicians I know. That is why Al Schneider, who's magic style I don't like, is a magic winner.
Kudos Mr. Schneider you are a cool dude.
