Have You Heard?…

Greetings, hard though it seems to believe, we are almost half a year into 2010 and Mothers Day is this Sunday, at least here in the United States.  Please allow me to take this opportunity to wish all the mothers out there a wonderful day full of love and happiness.  

 Jay and I will be unable to be in Palatka with our son and his family because we are officers in the Elks Lodge and there is a mandatory ritual which is held in honor of mothers on Mothers Day.   Said ritual includes a brunch and since this is held early in the morning, we will be celebrating the day with my own mother and family after lunch here in our home.   Orlando is unable to be down with us because he is still in training for the Wounded Warrior program so I will be without either one of the boys or the grandbaby this year. 

Next week we will be in Jacksonville attending the McBride show and workshop which is being hosted by the IBM Ring 170.   We are excitedly looking forward to spending time with Jeff as well as with our friends Simone and Travis.   A quick turn around and the week after that will see Jay in Atlanta then flying down to Mexico City where he will meet up with me as we attend the Abrakadabra Convention.  We feel like the jetsetters. 

Until next time my friends, keep a dream in the making for you create your tomorrows by what you dream today.

May 1, 2010 |  8:12 am


Adrian Ramos was only 19, but he was already making a name for himself as a magician: El Magnifico. He performed at Hollywood’s Magic Castle at age 9 and had also made TV appearances, including on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

But on Wednesday, as he was walking home from a class at Fullerton College with a guitar strapped on his back, he was approached by a group of men.  According to Anaheim police, he was gunned down in a robbery

Have A Fun Time At Fantasma! 

FAQ

How are you determining who can attend?

The event is open to everyone and there is no admission fee; however, only members of the magic community will allowed to bid… or have items up for auction 

Will the auction be online as well?

No, this particular event is an in-shop only auction. However, Fantasma does occasionally offer various items up for bid on EBay. Also, phone bids will NOT be allowed, but bidding by proxy is acceptable 

Will there be an online catalog?

There are no plans for an online catalog – a partial catalog will be printed and made available one week before the auction. The catalog can emailed if you are unable to get to the shop prior to May 2nd. 

Is there a minimum value for an Item to be entered into the auction?

There is no minimum value for inclusion in the auction – however, please note that auction fees are 20% of price realized (or 10% for items over a thousand dollars)

 Just curious, how to you vet bidders?

Well, between all of us here at the shop, we know all of the NYC magician’s and the magic notables from around the country. I suppose if you’re coming in from out-of-state and no one here knows you… someone could vouch for you, or you could shows us a club member ID, business card or even perform a classic pass 😉 

Given this era of EBay, why charge a 20% fee, is there something I am missing?

Well, EBay can afford lower fees because of the shear volume of items being sold every day, there are thousands of transactions happening ever hour. From what I can tell 20% is the standard fee for live-in-person auction. 

Do you provide advice about suggested reserves and estimate final values?

This event is a pretty causal affair and no one here is an expert (except for the shop owner Roger). A simple Google search could help in most situations. Also, please bear in mind that the condition of your item will affect the price.

MAGICIANS LIFE

 Appletell reviews the Kymera Magic Wand IR remote
by Jake Gaecke

The idea behind the Kymera Magic Wand is really quite novel; the ability to control your TV with just the flick of a wand. Wands are synonymous with control, making them perfect for working a TV or other IR device. It doesn’t hurt that most of us have been entranced with them since childhood with entertainment from Disney all the way to Harry Potter.  And in practice, it’s truly magic, or at least the kind of magic that your standard magician would perform, making it perfect for kids and the young at heart.

Nikola Tesla, Forgotten Magician
Posted by Sidian M.S. Jones


His name does not ring through the history books. He is not famous, celebrated, or otherwise widely known. Like all great magicians, he has all but disappeared. But not before dazzling the minds of his time and the minds of those who would pursue his great and mysterious work in this modern day. His name was Nikola Tesla, a God of science. Born in 1856 Tesla can be marked responsible for alternating current (as in AC and DC), wireless communication, the electric motor, basic lasers and radar, x-rays, neon, robotics, remote control, cellular technology, and even had developed plans for tactical warfare in space. All of this taking place over one hundred years ago.

He died alone, in poverty in a New York hotel room at the age of 86. A man who was known to sit casually in the midst of crackling arch-lightning like a proud, ingenious animal, sometimes reading a book as if he were at home among his electric storms. A display, which struck fear in others, was to him an abstract comfort.
And although he had achieved reverence among the rich and glamorous in his younger years in New York, his fame was jealously frowned upon by one very rich and very famous fellow God of science. Thomas Edison.

GOOD AND WELFARE 

Rachel Wild Colombini

Aldo and Rachel have been on an extensive European tour, currently in the UK. Rachel, who suffers from a longstanding heart condition, was hospitalized two days ago there and the doctors have confirmed that she is having a life threatening case of the heart infection “endocarditis” and is suffering from embolisms in her feet.

They have been able to secure a flight home this coming Sunday ( May 2) and there are cardiologists on standby in Tampa awaiting their arrival. They are going to attempt to put an intravenous line into her heart for a number of weeks and she will receive daily infusions via that intravenous line.

UPDATE:  They are back in Florida after a 25+ hour trip from England to Tampa.  Rachel is in the hospital and will be having a procedure tomorrow (Tuesday) for which she will be undergoing anesthesia; the doctors will be check for any valve damage and how extensive this endocarditis is.  The latter part of this week she will have the intravenous line put in her heart so that she can receive the daily infusions.

Her color is much better and Aldo says she looks better than she has been.  She is in good spirits and sends everyone her regards and her thanks for all your get well wishes and the beautiful emails you’ve sent me which I have made reach them.  Both she and Aldo send their gratitude for your prayers.

 

BROKEN WAND 

It is with a heavy heart that I report on the passing of Al Meyer.   The sad news comes through Harold Greenbaum who phoned to let us know.

 Al was instrumental in the starting of the Magic Luncheons in Ft. Lauderdale and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. 

Services were held at 3:00 P.M. on Monday, May 3, 2010 at Star of David Memorial Garden, 7701 Bailey Road, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida  (954) 722-9000. 

Al Meyer was a quiet, unassuming man who touched countless hearts and made a difference in the life of anyone he came in contact with.   Deepest condolences to his family and friends.   May he rest in peace.

Saludos, aunque parece difícil de creer, estamos casi medio año después de 2010 y Día de la Madre es este domingo, al menos aquí en los Estados Unidos. Permítanme aprovechar esta oportunidad para desear a todas las madres un día maravilloso lleno de amor y felicidad.

Jay y yo no podremos estar en Palatka con nuestro hijo y su familia porque somos oficiales en la Logia Elks y hay un ritual obligatorio que se celebra en honor a las madres en Día de la Madres. Dicho ritual incluye un almuerzo y ya que este se lleva a cabo temprano en la mañana, vamos a celebrar el día con mi propia madre y la familia después de la comida aquí en nuestra casa. Orlando no podra estar con nosotros, porque él todavía está en entrenamiento, así que no podremos estar con los hijos e el nieto este año.

La próxima semana estaremos en Jacksonville asistirán al espectáculo McBride y el taller que está siendo organizada por el Ring de IBM 170. Estamos esperando con entusiasmo a pasar tiempo con Jeff, así como con nuestros amigos de Simone y Travis. Una vuelta rápida y la semana después vera a Jay en Atlanta luego volara a Ciudad de México donde se reunirá conmigo para asistir a la Convención Abrakadabra. Nos sentimos como la jet set

Hasta la próxima amigos, mantengan un sueño en elaboracion ya que crean sus mañanas con lo que sueñan hoy.

La idea detrás de la Varita Mágica Kymera es realmente novedosa, la habilidad para controlar su TV sólo con el simple accionamiento de un tubo. Las varitas son sinónimo de control, que las have perfectas para trabajar un televisor u otro dispositivo de rayos infrarrojos. El ‘t del doesn daño que la mayoría de nosotros hemos estado en trance con ellos desde la infancia con el entretenimiento de Disney hasta el final de Harry Potter. Y en la práctica,? S verdaderamente mágico, o al menos el tipo de magia que su mago estándar que funcione, lo que es perfecto para los niños y los jóvenes de corazón.

Nikola Tesla, olvidado Mago

Publicado por obsidiana M.S. Jones

Su nombre no suena a través de los libros de historia. Él no es famoso, que se celebra, o no muy conocida. Como todos los grandes magos, que casi ha desaparecido. Pero no antes de las mentes deslumbrantes de su tiempo y las mentes de aquellos que persiguen su obra grande y misterioso en esta era moderna. Su nombre era Nikola Tesla, un Dios de la ciencia. Nacido en 1856 Tesla se pueden marcar responsible de corriente alterna (como en AC y DC), comunicación inalámbrica, el motor eléctrico, el láser y el radar de base, los rayos X, el neón, la robótica, control remoto, tecnología celular, e incluso había elaborado planes para la guerra táctica en el espacio. Todo esto tiene lugar have más de cien años.

Murió solo, en la pobreza en una habitación de hotel de Nueva York a la edad de 86 años. Un hombre que era conocido casualmente a sentarse en medio de crujidos arco-rayo como un animal orgulloso, ingeniosa, a veces la lectura de un libro como si estuviera en su casa entre sus tormentas eléctricas. Una pantalla, que atemorizaba a los demás, era para él un consuelo abstracto.   Y a pesar de que había logrado respeto entre los ricos y famosos en sus años jóvenes, en Nueva York, su fama estaba bien visto en celosamente por un muy rico y muy famoso colaboradores de Dios de la ciencia. Thomas Edison.
