The Amazing Mr. J - Magician & Entertainer

CHUCK NORRIS loved his balloon! He took a step back upon seeing it, saying a long "Woooow. That's...amazing." (Afterwards, I realized: "How many people can say they've made Chuck Norris actually back up??") The superkicking star proved fantastically friendly, with a hearty handshake and warm nature. Briefly putting my arm on his shoulder, I told the legend: "Chuck, you could take Bruce Lee, no problem!" He genuinely laughed, closing his eyes and leaning his head back when he did! This wonderful experience aside, honestly the day's most fulfilling personal joy arrived afterwards, when presenting the balloon as a gift to a couple little excited kids. Saw them happily swinging it around, and using it for pretend roundhouse kicks with each other! Martial arts, magic, and happy kids...a perfect day. :) ... See MoreSee Less

The Amazing Mr. J - Magician & Entertainer

In memory of STEVE DITKO, creator of Dr. Strange, and co-creator of Spider-Man (with Stan Lee!). Steve was the consummate reclusive genius...very rarely seen (you can count on one hand the photos of him that even exist!), yet was one of the most original, influential artists of our time. (Naturally, as a magician, Dr. Strange has long been a much-loved personal favourite!) Lesser known, (though totally awesome!), is one of Steve's final creations, the happy-go-lucky Squirrel Girl! RIP to an absolute GIANT in the history of comics, and art. Hope you get to check out his work at your local comics store...Steve Ditko was a *true* magician! www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/steve-ditko-dead-spider-man-creator-was-90-1125489 ...

Imagine how much courage (and Magic skill) you'd need to try and fool Penn & Teller...and then actually DOING it! Congrats to my Toronto Magic Friends, Mysterion & Steffi Kay, aka 'The Sentimentalists!' They are everything right about the Magic Arts today: 1) A woman and man as EQUAL on-stage performers! 2) Wonderful personalities and stage characters, and 3) An elegant unique STYLE, in the form of their vintage 1930s look. Love these two, and hope you will too! :) www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiHgdwNY1gU ... See MoreSee Less
