The ENIGMA and the rest of The Show Devils came through The Freakshow today. They are cool as Hell!!! They helped us draw a crowd and even joined in some Staple Gun Fun Smile
My friend (and possible relative) Fred Olen Ray also came through today with his family (his kids are definitely "With it"). Fred wrote a great book on Grind Shows that must be had! I forgot to get him to autograph my copy! Here's a great video of him getting ready to sell a Shrunken Head!!!

Hello Todd:

Looks like Valentines day was a banner day for the show, CONGRATS!!!!! I saw your post on Feb 6, about giant squids. A friend of mine toured with a giant octopus back in 2006. his show is featured on sideshoworld.com. Look up giant octopus/ Anatomy of a side show. It shows the building of the whole show , Sam no longer owns the show but, I am sure Sam will be able to answer some questions . May the tips be pleantiful and the spending heavy.

Todd:

Thanks so much.....sorry we were never able to touch base....hopefully I'll get my butt out there....I'm dying to see your place....

Will:

True story....I'm at a magic lecture the other night...and before the lecture starts I hear someone talking about how they got a nasal infections when they "did it." Coming into the middle of it, I asked "were you doing blockhead?" The guy said yes, so I showed him my card, which features the x-ray I had taken of my head with the nail driven home (the x-ray I used--to my mother's chagrin--as my author photo for my book CARNY SIDESHOWS). The guy looks at the card and says "oh, man, you know I'm going to steal this..." He was deadly serious. I took the card back.

Tony, That is a sad story, but having been to many magic clubs, I am sure it is true. My comment was in reference to a BS on-line drama that happened on FB and another list. I was just stirring the pot a little! Thanks for the story, Will
