Just saw Robert Gallup at the local magic shop competition, he was judging. First famous magician I've been in a room with, well, since Rudy Coby a few years back, pretty cool!

What ever happened to Rudy anyway I haven't seen him on TV for while, is he still performing?

Heya Mike,

I'm guessing that was the Bernard's Magic Shop competition on Saturday, yeah? At Draculas Cabaret Restaurant? Some of the kids in the competition were pretty good.

I work at Draculas, and also am good friends with Bert and Christina. They hold the competition there every year, and Rob Gallup was a judge last year too.

I hung around for a while after the comp, and it was interesting hearing what Rob had to say about magic and where he thinks it's headed.

Anyway, outta here!

Hi Topher,

Yeah it was the Bernards comp at Draculas. You weren't the guy walking round with makeup on were you haha? Some of the kids were pretty good, not many competitors though. There doesn't seem to be much of a junior scene in Melbourne anymore, I don't know of any other competitions either.

What did Rob have to say about magic?

Talk to you later,

Mike.

Heya Mike,

Rob was saying the same thing as you. There's a lot more members in the club, but not many of them were interested in getting up and performing. He was talking about maybe getting kids up to do a talk on their favourite magician (Blaine or Copperfield, whatever), and then maybe performing one of their tricks. It was a good theory to atleast get them performing. Gotta fly. Dad wants to show me his new car.

Not sure what's up with Rudy Coby. I have been looking for him myself. His site is still up but hasn't been changed in a long time. Hope he makes a reappearance sometime soon!
