It’s amazing to look back each time to see how much fun I pack into each month. My life and career is full of surprises. This month was busy with shows for private clients. One client raises about 50 Arabian horses and brought one to their event. I did a lecture for the Shreveport club that was well attended. The gang there put me up at the Horseshoe Casino. That night I lost $100 quick playing some kind of new-fangled blackjack. The next morning I planned to play in the Poker Room for a little while before driving back. I played for 8 hours straight because I was doing so well. The only reason I left was because I needed to pack for a Florida trip the next day.
So my buddy Jared Guynes took a guy, who had never left the state of Texas, to Disney World. He asked if I’d like to join. Luckily, I was free that weekend and we took in Epcot and The Magic Kingdom. It was fun to watch our guest Homar experience travel, his first plane ride, a different climate, etc. It was nostalgic for me to return there since that’s where I bought my first magic book when I was five years old. See a video of our Disney adventure above.
My book Bamboozlers Three is back in stock. It cost a pretty penny to print these books but they seem to stay in demand. I’ve sold thousands of these little bar betcha bibles. I am slowly writing Volume Four and creating a spin-off product too. See all my books here.
I’ve been playing lots of poker and seeing lots of friends. One group of friends rented a limo one night and took us all too a burlesque magic show. It was an interesting concept. Seeing the show made me want to work harder at creating my own one-man show here in Dallas.
I got a call from my friend Mitch in Burbank, CA and he wanted to know if I’d come back to Power 106 FM and do another magic video with the famous rapper DJ Khaled. The last time they had me out to entertain Jason Derulo the response was big. So I flew out and attended the Magic Castle one Monday night with a beautiful lady friend. The next day I did my part for DJ Khaled who seemed like a genuinely cool guy. See that video below. The next night I attended the Castle again with my friend Mitch. Then I flew back to do an in-town show.
Once home my buddy Jared had another wild idea. He asked his facebook followers, “Who had never been to Medieval Times?” He ended up arranging two party vans, thanks to our friends at Texas Motor Cars, and we took 15 people to Medieval Times and then onto the Cidercade in Dallas for free! My job was to entertain the party-goers. We all had a great time.
Now it’s June 30th and one hour before I leave for LA. I’m returning to work the Close-Up Gallery at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. This will be my 11th time working a full week there and my 3rd time lecturing at the Castle. I always feel like a superstar there thanks to the amazing staff and audiences. I’m very much looking forward to seeing many friends while in California. Fotunately, I have family staying at my place while I’m gone to look over things and ship orders as they come in. I love my crazy life!
