So here is the deal, I'll be at Magic Live with some friends. I believe there is some time on Tuesday, August 18 to do so, although I'm not sure as we have no schedule.

I think we have it narrowed down to either Penn & Teller or the Criss Angel Experience.

Your thoughts??

You're joking, right?

Even if you've seen P&T before, they've recently added Teller's performance of the Abbott floating ball trick that he's been working on for years.

You can bet that if I only have time during Magic Live for one outside show, that's the show I'm gonna see.

That's what I was thinking .. but then there is Criss' show. I've heard so many things about it.

Who knows .. maybe he'll read this and set me up with some comps. At one point he was the "rock" magician in New York and I was the "rock" magician in Chicago .. yet, after all these years ... we never met.

Give me a call Criss ...

I'm the "rock" magician of Branson.......

Just in case you were looking for something other than all of the Country Music S=== that's in this town..

Too bad I'm not still in Vegas or we could hang out Steve.

He'll be calling any minute now too ...

The rock magician of Brighton will be there, but rock is something different in the UK - a candy stick with the name written through the length!

Chezeday are you sure there is time out during Magic Live?
Yours Magically,

I think there is time on Tuesday evening. They have some sort of close-up show with different times to choose from. In years past there was the opening night gala with the dealers room. Two evening shows, one on Monday and Wednesday.

I've been to the event since it's inception and it's been a blast. Again it's sold-out but there is a waiting list for those who still are interested.

Let's not forget about going to the Abbott's Magic Get-Together. I'm performing this year .. reason enough to head out to the sleepy town of Colon Michigan.

Now I'm even more upset that I can't make Magic Live. Dying to meet you Steve. I was there a few months ago and P&T hands down. Angel may not even have a show by then.

Oh .. well that's different. We've had some crazy adventures. I forget some of the stuff we've done.

Maybe it's time for a book ...

Go to P&T.. Angel's show sucks... you think you'll enjoy seeing him suck, but it's a LONG two hours filled with frustrations and angry inner monologues in your head...

With P&T, you'll still have an inner monologue, but it will be... BRILLIANT! Why didn't I think of that!

Yep, Penn and Teller. I think this would be money well-spent, even if Angel gives you comps. [Did I say that outloud?] Plenty of time to see Angel at other venues.
Wonder is very necessary in life. When we're little kids, we're filled with wonder for the world - it's fascinating and miraculous. A lot of people lose that. They become cynical and jaded, especially in modern day society. Magic renews that wonder.

As expected ... I never heard from Criss but, we did manage to get some half-price tickets for his show that night.

Of course with all the negative reviews about the show .. I had to see it with my own eyes, and lets just say I left dazed and confused. I'm still not sure what I saw .. really.

Earlier in the day I saw Nathan Burton's show at the Flamingo .. and I must say it was a very entertaining show, if not the best afternoon magic show in town.

Steve... I did the same thing. I would have loved for you to see P&T just for the pure inspiration to the art, but sometimes we learn as much from the other side. It's sometimes a matter of studying history so as not to repeat it. Next time it's P&T, no excuses!
