Hotel after hotel and finally home...
 
This month has been full of traveling and more hotel rooms than I can remember. I started off the month at a magic convention in New Jersey, then left from Jersey straight to a weeks vacation in Myrtle Beach, then home for 2 days, and then off to Atlanta, Georgia to work on the Magic TV show The Carbonaro Effect. Wow, working on a magic TV show was awesome! The kid in me was jumping up and down excited, but the adult inside of me kept saying, “show them what you can do and impress them”. As it turns out I think I did both. I was also able to take my girls with me which turns out was harder to get approval on than I realized due to insurance issues, but my contact on the show really fought for us and got it done, which I am so thankful for.

Now that we are back home after being gone for a month, we have a ton to catch up on; bills, laundry, yard work, not to mention all the office work we are behind in. But all in all we are just doing it one step at a time. 

This month we have a bunch of Halloween shows on the books as well as company picnics, magic classes, & more.

 Quote of the month: “A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work."

Video of the month/Wes Iseli’s behind the scenes look at The Carbonaro Effect
 
This month’s video is a slide show of a bunch of photos Natalie & I took while on the set of The Carbonaro Effect. Since it is a magic show and secrecy agreements were in place, we can’t show any magic photos or reveal any secrets but we still have some cool shots we would like to share.

Why Magic as a career?
 
In case you don’t know my back story, I grew up spending summers with my dad in his video store. I watched movie after movie all summer long and I dreamed of being a special make up effects artist. I even planned on going to the Art Institute of Pennsylvania after graduating high school. Well, towards the end of my high school years Terminator 2 came out and changed the game. CGI, or computer generated imagery, was the new hip thing in movies. I wanted to do hands on movie make up and could not stand the thought of spending 80 hours a week behind a desk tied to a computer. So I went to college to study marketing and decided to do magic instead since I always wanted to do magic but special FX seemed more like a real job. I knew it would be tough and I also knew I loved magic and I was determined. I have been full time now for 18 years and have seen and experienced some amazing things that I would not have been able to if I worked a 9-5 job.
 
Some highlights so far:
Performing at the British embassy and other prestigious venues.
 
Performing for fortune 500 companies, resorts, high school auditoriums, performing arts centers and theaters all over the East Coast.
 
Being elected president of the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring 320
 
Teaching private and public magic lessons.
 
Headlining magic conventions.
 
Lecturing to magicians.
 
Working on The Carbonaro Effect TV Show.

Perfect for Halloween
 
Jim Pace's "The Web"
will out-impact any other effect in your repertoire. 
 

For those that want to go for the jugular and take no prisoners, the Web gets a more visceral reaction than any card effect ever created! In fact, there are some people you simply should not do this effect for because it starts out so innocently, yet ends with such a startling reaction! 

The effect: this makes 'em jump up and scream! Four blank cards are counted onto the spectator's palm up hand. Then pictures of spider webs appear and disappear from the faces of the cards. To conclude, the spectator is asked to wave his hands over the cards. As he does, he discovers a large, realistic spider on the back of his hand. The spider is undetectable, and you are way ahead! At the right time, in the right place, this receives an unprecedented response!
 
 
   
 
Teach a Trick /  Rattle caps
 
Effect: Three small bottle caps are shown, one of them has a steel ball inside causing it to rattle when it is shaken. The other 2 caps are silent when shaken. They are mixed around but a spectator always guesses wrong as to which one rattles, although 2 guesses are allowed.
 
Secret: Actually, 4 caps are used. Paste a round piece of cardboard on the bottom of each cap, but place a steel ball into one of them. The cap with the ball is now attached with scotch tape to your rightarm, so it’s hidden by your sleeve. Pick up each cap with your left hand, shake it, it’s silent. Now pick up the third cap with your right hand and shake it. They will hear the sound from the hidden cap. Now mix the caps around and let someone guess which one rattles. After 2 guesses, which will be wrong, lift the third cap with your right hand. Of course, it will rattle!
