OK, the lead off video is not magic, but this store footage from Guapiles, Costa Rica of a woman shoplifting a TV is pretty impressive when it comes to sleight of skirt and chutzpah. Maybe she could use a little more instruction in the fine art of misdirection.
It is getting hard to keep track of all the magic on US television lately… We almost missed that Justin Willman is scheduled for tonight’s Late, Late Show on CBS. Check those local listings, or you know, the on screen guide from your pay TV provider.
Still kicking yourself for missing out on The Different Deck? You kind of have a second chance with a new Kickstarter for special Green Back Edition. This version brings along wooden dice, coins and more.
Finally, an update on Dan Harlan’s Tarbell: The Complete Course video series. A) I still am super impressed with this product and am still a happy subscriber. B) Penguin is switching it to a new schedule, releasing lessons every other Friday (instead of weekly) and cutting the price of subscriptions. Frankly, I have fallen behind on the series because certain lessons seem to cry out for more than a week of work (and I have not even gotten to last week’s giant two part lesson) so I am all for this move.
