Magic And Legalized Pot Mix On MTV2 [NSFW]

Posted by Michael on March 27th, 2017

This clip from MTV2′s World Star TV combines street magic, legalized marijuana and comedy. Although it kind of makes fun of the whole street magic craze, there appears to be real magic being performed… but it might be camera tricks. I am not sure since I am not familiar with the show. I’m old. I didn’t even realize that MTV was still a thing!

Behind The Scenes With Steve Barcellona

Posted by Michael on March 22nd, 2017

Okay, I might be at iTricks Tower Midwest V2.0 outside of Kansas City, but I am still a St. Louis boy at heart (and legally, until I sell a house…). So it makes me very happy to keep up the “behind the scenes” theme we started with our last post and present a St. Louis magician! Steve Barcellona recently posted this backstage peek as he gets ready for a show. In the interest of full disclosure, I am 99% sure I met Steve at the one Midwest Magic Jubilee I have ever attended maybe a dozen years ago… You can meet Steve virtually over at his official website.
