From what I can tell, this video is from some kind of Japanese reality show pitting Chinese magicians against Japanese magicians. It has been edited down by Michael Lam to showcase his highlights (which is understandable; plus, he is the guy who posted it to Vimeo). Even though it is mainly in Japanese, it is interesting to watch just to see how quickly some of the trends from US magic are making it overseas.
Somehow while I was really sick (instead of just kind of sick like now) I missed Oz Pearlman appearing on the TODAY Show. He didn’t make a Super Bowl prediction last week to be revealed after the game like many mentalists. Instead, here is an appearance from January 26 that includes a successful Super Bowl prediction!
Haven’t seen a new Justin Flom video in a bit… until he turned up The Rachel Ray Show this week to help a young man propose to his girlfriend. You can read a little more about the couple on the show’s website.
And now, from some version of the Got Talent franchise, we present Silk Road, the quick change act of Radislav and Olga. We did go to Radislav Safin’s official website, and all we could confirm there was that his contact information seems to place the act’s home in Kyrgyzstan but they seem to be traveling around Europe.
I think that if we have any theme today is might just be that you don’t need to share a language to share in magic! That is your thought for the weekend; have a great one and stay safe.
This video starts with a little talking that you probably won’t understand… but that is okay. Once Cristina gets going, you will be able to follow along as she performs a classic effect. Just in case you were considering it: DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!
You can see more of Cristina on her website, but it is not in English.
Ahead of his show, KFOR NBC News Channel 4 in Oklahoma City featured magician Rob Lake and his new partner Roger, a six year old mixed breed rescue dog. You can learn more about Rob on his official website. Roger doesn’t have a site yet.
