A Visit From Kermit The Frog [It Ain't Magic But...]

Posted by Michael on June 5th, 2020

This is not magic. However, you all know I am a HUGE fan of the Muppets and Jim Henson. And there is a whole bunch of really emotionally draining stuff going on in the world and maybe we just all need to take a moment. Finally, with all the attention Star Wars properties are getting from Disney+ coverage some of you might not realize The Muppets are back and streaming on the service, too.

So, no politics, no opinions from me or iTricks. Just a simple message: have a great, safe weekend.

Speaking of TV magic, Justin Willman (star of Netflix’s Magic For Humans) zoomed into The Late, Late Show with James Corden earlier this week. If you have not done it yet, you can binge season three of Magic For Humans this weekend.

Is This A Magic Act?

Posted by Michael on June 3rd, 2020

I mean personally, I do not think I can quite categorize this as a magic act… but that is kind of how Jen and Daiquiri billed themselves last night on America’s Got Talent. We’ll see, I guess, if they continue their magic theme in future appearances.
