Hello, friends.  I come to you today with several announcements.  First and foremost is that I have moved Magic Time from YouTube to Vimeo.  The reason is not long or complicated so I’ll explain it after this week’s episode.  I have other announcements too, but those are covered briefly in the video and if you want more details, then read on, brave souls.

Whew!  I kinda got carried away at the end there with the announcements and what not.  But that’s just because I’m so excited about it all!  So for all those still with me, here’s some more details.  First off, YouTube really mad me mad yesterday.  I spent a total of six hours trying to upload episode 18!  The upload reached 100% 3 times and then crashed leaving me to start over.  It’s been giving me problems for weeks now but this is the first time I’ve been completely unable to get it to upload.  So I said, “enough, YouTube!  You stick to your videos of cats playing the keyboard (hilarious by the way) and I’ll take my little show elsewhere.”  I had played around with Vimeo a few months ago and really liked it.  I could personalize my page way better than on YouTube and the videos uploaded faster and were better quality.  So, there you go.  Easy decision.  Click here to see the new channel!  I’ll be uploading past episodes gradually over time so eventually, they will all be there.

Second, yes, Magic Time is going from a weekly video to an every other weekly video.  I think I made the case pretty well in the video: I just want them to be as good as my vision of them and that just takes more time.  Especially now that I’m getting busier and busier, which is awesome!

Lastly, the “contest.”  Ok, it’s not really much of a contest, but I’m still really excited about it.  All I ask is that you spread the word about me and my magic.  How hard could that be?  Help me get a gig, and you can be on the internet!  It’s that easy.  I’ve been wanting to do episodes with guests for a while now, because so much of my magic needs someone there to interact with.  I just thought this would be a fun way to do it that could help my business grow at the same time.  Win win.

Well, thanks for sticking with me this long if you’re still reading.  You’re way better than all those other people who just stopped half way through.  Seriously, though, thank you all for the continued support and helping me make my dream come true.

An old fashioned episode with just me talking to the camera.  I wanted to share this piece I’ve been working on for a while now.  It’s a personal story about my path along the road to becoming a magician.  Enjoy.

 

Egad!  This is my 50th post!  Thanks everyone for reading and watching.

Hot town, summer in the city… something something something something talking to a kitty.

I apologize for that.

 

Magic Time! #15

July 6, 2011

Wow! It’s been a really busy week.  I’ve managed to get a regular weekly gig at a local restaurant and it’s going really well.  No one is as surprised about that as I am.  I’ve battled my performance anxiety for so long, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to actually go through with it.  But, once I push past the initial fear and get going, I become completely immersed in the performance and my passion and love for magic so outweighs my fear that it is almost nonexistent.  It’s magic, really.

Anyway, here is a brand new Magic Time!  In this episode, I let you guys behind the scenes to see what it’s like to learn a new trick.  It’s not as easy as I thought…
