OK dokie, we are back to filming again in Kalamazoo for future episodes of Now That's Magic! in October, 2010. Duane Laflin has given us some new DVD footage to use and we have some live performance footage taken earlier this year of MagicBob, SuZie and myself from the Logos Hope ship. But we'd sure like to include footage of YOU in future episodes- please see above posting for details. The programs currently air on 6 community access stations in Michigan, plus on two stations in India and Africa, plus on the internet. We can't pay you anything for any footage you submit, and we don't sell anything either, but we can tell you it will be aired if our FCM member and video editor Randy Craven decides to use your DVD footage. Thanks again for your consideration of this oppoortunity.

Fantastic Jamie! We are filming again on October 5 in Kalamazoo at the Community Access Center, which means our Editor show have one or two shows completed before Thanksgiving. So don't mean to rush any of you as we'll always take more submissions, but if you could get your footage DVDs to me before October 6 for consideration for inclusion in the next set of programs, it would be greatly appreciated. We need quality Gospel magic for our programs. Fired Up!
Message: Posted by: MagicBus (Oct 2, 2010 07:54AM)
Hey Terry Owens: could you send me your DVD again of some of your TV footage? I am the new editor for our cable access show as the Kalamazoo studio has added some easier to use editing computers. Our old editor did a fantastic job- but now we can do the program editing almost immediately in house after filming. We are filming again on October 5 and October 12. I don't have any of the footage on DVD you sent to me before- if you could resend it- it would be much appreciated! We will also take DVD footage too from any source as long as we have full permission to use it. Roger Magic Bus from http://www.ChristianMagician.org More new programs on the way soon!
Message: Posted by: MagicBus (Oct 6, 2010 06:49PM)
Had a terrific filming session with MagicBob last night: filmed among other things over the past two weeks the Fairchild "Church Links" effect, Dean's Box, Laflin's multiplying "Big Time" root beer bottles, dark water to clear (Gospel), and the vanishing old time radio. Taping Pete Stobie and Alan Kazam next Tuesday night. I hate to be a beggar: but if you have yourself performing on a decent DVD doing Gospel magic and we have your permission to use it in our programs- please mail it on to me and we'll share it on our future show(s)and on our web site (over 8,000 "hits").

Odd 'n Ends: I love how Duane Laflin and MagicBob do Duane's multiplying bottles" effect- it is a hoot- and not so offensive like beer bottles. MagicBob dresses up like a striped coated carnival barker for the trick- wish I had bought it myself... FAB Magic sells the no-tip tray for it if interested, lots of dealers sell the bottles, Duane sells the labels, routine and CD... By the way, the "Ribbon Fantastique" routine on pages 40 and 41 of the 2010 October M-U-M magazine could be used for any "block go" Gospel patter as well (one being released from the bondage of sin, having a clear life (could put a heart on the plexiglass plate, etc.)... Maybe Sean Taylor of "No Fail Kid's Show Magic Volume 1" dvd might be a good lecturer for a future FCM convention... Have you seen the way overpriced Criss Angel magic tricks now being sold at Walgreen's?... A packs flat animal card trick for kids that is getting good reviews is "You're the Star" by David Goodsell at http://www.DavidGoodsellMagic.com... I love all the full color pictures in the Sept/Oct issue of The Voice of FCM- good close up clear pictures of the performers- the best ever in the magazine I think... I am not sure if I am reading the annual reports right- but it looks like per page 36 of the last issue of The Voice of FCM the 2010 FCM convention was a huge and wonderful financial success with plenty of "beginning balance" funds on hand for even a more terrificer 2011 convention- sweet! Bring on the "high level" lecturers and performers!- looks like the resources are there to do it for sure! A+ FCM. Better than being a part of a broke and underfunded good like many non-profits are... Love the line on page 29 overheard at the convention(?): "Is this seat saved? No, but I hope it is under conviction."... My rope was denied entrance to the FCM convention- so it went outside- where Harvey Barfenfloss tied it in a knot and frayed the ends. The rope went back into the convention- and when Jim asked the rope if it was the same one he threw out before it replied: "No, frayed knot."

Very last call to get your DVD footage to me immediately- we should have two brand new 1 hour "Magic With A Message" cable access programs posted to http://www.ChristianMagician.org before this Christmas. Got lots of neato new raw Gospel magic footage to choose from- stay tuned!

MagicBob did some pretty neat new effects with a Gospel message that I have never seen before anywhere- hope you will enjoy his new stuff in particular. We also will be including some close up tricks that we have avoided before- but starting zooming in the camera closer this time around... It was a hoot to prepare- I wish you all could have been there doing your favorite effect- something I hope all of you get to do locally someday... can't recommend it enough. Take those local video/cable access classes in your community and let 'er rip! :)

Whoops, Laflin's Cut and Restored Bible is actually before Tregg Illusions at the end of program #2. Stay tuned... I'll post here when we get the two programs up on our web site. The editing for these new programs will not as smooth as the work our fine video editor Randy did on previous programs- I did my best to put the segments together using a low tech DVD recorder, that's about it. So ignore the jerky cuts between segments and the lack of snappy graphics, but the content of the individual segments themselves is still worthwhile to watch. We used a "rebo studio" where I was able to operate all three cameras, film and edit all from a simple switching station. Seems odd to say this- but when I appear in the series, I was the only person in the entire room- I set the camera and then walked around in front of it. Pretty neat-o!

MagicBob emailed me today, 12-14-2010, his hard drive crashed on his computer with the NTM series on it. No problem- he said he would get it fixed and the new shows posted next week sometime to http://www.ChristianMagician.org MagicBob has 20 shows scheduled in December- just amazes me that he still finds the time to run this web site, have a full time job, be President of Ring 211, attend Bible studies, etc. .. Thanks again MagicBob for all you do!

Rough draft video Program #1 "MagicBob and Friends" of the Magic With A Message! cable access series is now posted. Program #2 "On The Logos Hope" should be posted tomorrow 1-7-2011. Thanks to MagicBob for expanding/fixing his hard drive to add these 2 new one hour Gospel magic programs to our web site http://www.ChristianMagician.org See above for above for program content. If you have any material on DVD you would be willing to submit for future programs- we'd encourage you to send that along. We are putting together another 1 hour program in March (filming March 16, 2011, downtown Kalamazoo at The Epic Center/PMN studio before a small live audience). Roger

We are filming again March 31, 2011, at the downtown Epic Center (PMN studio- 3rd floor)in Kalamazoo from 5-9pm, all Gospel magicians welcome to join us (joining MagicBob and SuZie, Alan Kazam, myself and others). http://www.ChristianMagician.org

Had a terrific filming session last week- MagicBob did all new magic stuff and SuZie a brand new chalk picture in less than 4 minutes. The little studio was packed out with a live audience of kids and adults. KIF: In all the chaos, I totally forgot to do an informal interview for the podcast with MagicBob and SuZie afterwards about their recently completed trip to Africa... So will try to do that later.
Message: Posted by: MagicBus (Jun 8, 2013 09:15AM)
John mentioned the "EvangeCube". I did a large sized version of the EvangeCube (for the first time, with no one in the room, just walking back in forth in front of a preset fixed camera) at the 7th spot of the one hour special "MagicBob and Friends" indexed above (see the above for the complete lists) for http://www.ChristianMagician.org The EvangeCube is a wonderful and easy way to share the basic Gospel message.

I have another two hours of already filmed segments from last year from our local FCM KaZoo Chapter, I just have to someday just get around to editing this footage one into some more programs...

I have settled on "Thy Word Is True" (Psalm 119) for the changing blocks idea on youtube that John linked me to. The creative aspects of magic as a hobby is fun, isn't it?

Hi Wally -

The rope trick you're mentioning is an older trick. Sometimes called 2-to-1 rope, the rope with 4 ends, etc. I learned how to make my own years ago from instructions in a magic book (I can't remember which book). I made my own in the 1970s or 1980s.

Duane Laflin even sells a DVD on the trick, which he calls "The Illusion of One Rope":

https://www.laflinmagicstore.com/Basic-Magic-Illusion-of-One-Rope-p/mdvdbmior.htm

He's also performed the trick on some of his other DVDs, because I remember watching it recently. (I was watching a bunch of Duane Laflin DVDs back in July and August, when I was recovering from surgery.)

- Donald

P.S. I think you're right, Wally. The Alan Kazam on the YouTube clip is not the one from Michigan (I know him, too). There are a few performers out there with that stage name.

From the video clip on Steven's website, I'm assuming that Nick Lewin's DVD is about the Professor's Nightmare (and variations on that), which is a totally different rope trick. MagicBus (Roger), did you actually watch the YouTube clip that Wally linked to? You have responded with comments about a different Alan Kazam and comments about a different rope trick. It's really a short video clip. Less than a minute to watch.

Whoops, am I bad. I did not realize this video clip was not of Michigan's Alan Kazam. Yikes, small world. Anyway, I am not sure about the origin of this particular rope routine - enjoyed it though... Brad Brown's rope routine on Now That's Magic #1 at www.ChristianMagician.org is long multi-phase routine if I recall and very well done. I myself know virtually nothing about rope tricks other than the routines performed now seem so much better than tthe simple cut and restored ones I saw as a kid at Abbott's.

FYI: Duane Laflin allowed us to use some of his Gospel magic videos in many of our programs indexed above. I noticed today, 2-13-2018, the www.LaflinMagicStore.com is having a tremendous sale with some of the Laflin items used in these videos now on sale. Some of the tricks are greatly discounted. I have no idea how this particular sale will last, but at this time many silks, sponge balls, DVDs and specific Gospel tricks are available right now at very affordable prices.

After 100,000 total views on all our previous video shows, MagicBob just placed all our programs linked directly with YouTube for the first time as well. Thank You MagicBob for doing this! All FCMers are WELCOME to bring your favorite Gospel routines for video taping brand new segments for www.ChristianMagician.org on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 10am-1pm in the kids wing at Lighthouse Community Church, 4321 S. 11th in Kalamazoo.

Had a good filming session - ad-libbed - fun- doing new routines for the first time. MagicBob will be compiling some footage into a new program shortly for www.ChristianMagician.org My favorite new gag was MagicBob producing a rabbit from his top hat- his pet rabbit who just "loves" working for him- who then hilariously snarls at him when MagicBob is looking away. It's called a "Fiesty Pets Vicky Vicious 8.5 inch plush Rabbit" and is available online or at a toy store near you for about $20. Just a HOOT, kids are going to love Vicky Vicious, a perfect funny substitution for all the many tricks designed for use with a live rabbit. I may use it with my rabbit wringer, had to order a Vicky Vicious right away. Our next meeting of the FCM West Michigan Chapter will be in Grand Rapids in January, 2019: Exact date, location and Saturday time will be posted later here.

We will most definitely be keeping this website going. However, both MagicBob and myself would like to have someone else take up the new organizational leadership of the West Michigan Chapter of the FCM- calling and planning meetings, promoting it through the new Chapter support through The Voice of the FCM, etc.. We plan on attending and supporting our local Chapter for sure, but we ourselves are taking a leave from setting up future meetings. Contact Beth Salo (FCM Secretary) at the FCM if you'd like to champion and take that leadership role of our local WM FCM Chapter (also known as the KaZoo Chapter if the FCM). We'd like to continue making more videos for the website too 😁
