Just stumbled across these little beauties whilst browsing the sideshow stuff on our favourite auction site.

I have to say, they look kinda familier... Don't you think Dr. Wilson? Smile

If you wanna have a look, and I recommend you do, stick these item numbers into a search:

Magician - eBay 190070348008

Spidora - eBay 190070243897

Voltron (Electric Act) - 190070346397

Now, what else can I try to balance on my face.....?

True anvils are usually 100 pounds and up, considered antique and are quite expensive at about 3 to 5 dollars a pound. You can get cast iron anvils from China or India fairly cheap at almost any weight from 1 pound to 55 or 75! My first anvil I lifted was 15 pounds. Then I got a 35 pounder, a 55 pounder and so on. I use a 100 pound Wilkinson anvil (made in Dudley, England) for blacksmithing and would never dare use it on a stage.

If any of you are looking for some banner art I had one done by Kevin Gerrone and it came out just great. It is 5 x 6 and has been getting great reactions from the crowds. He is already working on my second one. You can go to my Myspace page and see it up close and you can go to his web site at http://gerronestudios.com/ Make sure you tell him I sent you...

That size banner ran between $650 to $700. And, yes you will be seeing George and I back in Tucson this year again at the Pima Couny Fair. We have some new stunts for this year planned. Make sure you come to the last show of the night for all of the crazy stuff.

Hi Paul,
Yes, Kevin's work is very nice and holds up under serious beatings...lol. I hope to see you again at the convention this next year also. If Kevin's style is your cup of tea, you should hit him up he also has a very fast turn around time with the work. He sends you many drafts before he does the work to make sure you like it and takes direction very well.
