Hey guys,

I've always wanted to keep a road-journal when I travel, just as a way to keep track of my own memories, but always seem to forget or simply don't get around to it.

So, when Mike Krass asked me to contribute something to his site, Magicanada, I thought I could get two birds stoned at once.

So, if you head to:

http://magicanada.myfastforum.org/forum21.php

You'll be in the "Train" section (Mike gave it the title. Please direct all teasing towards him) and will be able say hello and keep in touch with me.

A quick word about the quality of the writing: I usually get in at around 3 or 4 in the morning and write my entries- sometimes later- so the quality of writing reflects that. In other words, its on par with my writing here!

I'll talk to you guys soon, and if you're in NY, at the GGG convention in San Fransisco, or at the C.A.M. convention in Montreal, say hello!

Ben "Who-cares-about-what-he's-doing?" Train

Hey Kent,

Ricky's too handsome too be my twin! But, we will both be there, and we were actually talking about how much we were looking forward to it last night.

Oh, and can my name tag say "He's Chris Brown and I'm not"?

Thank you to Ben for the plug Smile and for graciously offering such a cool little thing to Magicanada. It gives us the opportunity to ask questions, and have some big forces in magic answer them (via Ben, of course)... as well as read about his adventures around NYC. Definitely check it out!

My best friend in junior high was named ben and I train everyday with magic so. Ben Train, we're practically brothers if you think about it. See you at the triple G, son.

Lol.

Most of the time when I say "headed home to sleep" what I mean is "did something that I shouldn't talk about on a public forum".

At least, that's my story!

Chris,

I'm amused that you said: "We're brothers, son". That's sick. And I dig it. I'll see you at GGG, sis/mom/uncle.

"We're brothers, son" sounds like Oedipous magic. Chris, leave Ben's mother out of this... Smile

Seems to me like I saw the name Ben Train in the June Magic Magazine, with a trick called Kosher Monte. Ben is referred to as an "interesting dude." Can't wait to check out the trick.

Oh great.

Lol.

I just got back from Josh's place, where I've been crashing for a few days. Keep in mind- Josh is making fun of me. As he pointed out "I thought it was really nice and intimate! I NEVER talk about people's personal details in the column unless their good friends!"

The trick though, if I do say so myself, is a good one. When I released it Caleb Wiles, who's High Spots book was one of my top 10 books of the year (so far!) emailed me to tell me I "Sucked" because he had been working on an ungaffed version of that plot for years, and I had come up with the perfect version.

Whether it's perfect or not is for you guys to decide. I know it's been working great for me and has ALMOST gotten girls to talk to me (which is pretty sweet!).

I've been using "Kosher Monte" (Three Card Monte Burns) a lot, to great success. It's a fooler. I still hate that this thing fooled me... so simple, but when Ben showed it to me I thought he used a Mendoza switch or something... he didn't.

Mike makes a good point-

It's called Three Card Monte Burns. I love that title. Don't let Josh fool you!

Micky,

I can't wait to meet you and get an answer to that question we've all been asking ourselves since you joined the Café- is that mustache real?

I'm actually sitting in the hotel lobby right now, reading a book on Surrealism (Turns out life is more awesome then I thought), and waiting for Ricky, the Bucks, and the Mysterious kid himself, Spencer.

I'll see you in less then 24 hours!
