2. Disaster Fund Needs Donations
Message by George Schindler (US)

The disaster relief fund of Society of American Magicians Magic Endowment Fund needs your help.

The Society of American Magicians Magic Endowment Fund assists magicians who have suffered losses from national disasters such as earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and fires. The Disaster Relief Fund is supported by donations from the magic fraternity and others. Recent disasters have reduced the coffers and we need your help.

Our existing funds will not be enough cover the estimated losses and needs of magicians and allied artists affected by the recent Texas and Louisiana storm disasters. Your contributions are greatly appreciated. This solicitation is the only one presented by the S. A. M and all monies donated will go directly to the Disaster Fund. While we welcome offerings from Assemblies and third-party givers, we do not use raffles, prizes, drawings or incentives other than your generous and compassionate desire to help bring some relief to those in need of assistance.

The Society of American Magicians Magic Endowment Fund encourages direct donations earmarked for DISASTER RELIEF.- Mail checks to : S A M. Magic Endowment Fund at 18 Stoney Creek Road- Hilton Head SC 29928 or contribute on line via www.paypal.com to SAMadminstrator@magicsam.com (message DISASTER).

3. Help Fellow Magicians On The U.S.A. Gulf Coast
Message by Dennis Schick, USA

There likely will be magicians in the very-active world of magic in Houston, Texas and the Gulf Coast, who will need all the help they can get in coming weeks and months. Since the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and the resulting floods was still taking place as the September issue of The Linking Ring was going to press, we had the idea of asking I.B.M. members - and all magicians - to give to the Magicians Support Fund, anticipating those needs.

The Magicians Support Fund was started almost exactly twelve years ago, in response to another natural disaster - Hurricane Katrina, in 2005. The late Phil Wilmarth, then editor of The Linking Ring; Past I.B.M. International President Michael Stratman (2002-03); and Past IBM International President Roger Miller (2005-06) got the idea of an independent fund to help fellow magicians in need.

Indeed, the fund did help a number of magicians who suffered in various ways from Katrina, and has continued since then. The fund is not an official activity of the I.B.M., and magicians do not need to be an I.B.M. member to get help from it. "This is a magicians-helping-magicians fund," said Stratman, who continues as chairman of the committee.

At this time, the Fund is not tax-deductible (although it may become so if someone volunteers to take it over and do the paperwork). Requests for help can come directly from a magician, or can come from someone who knows of a need. The committee will consider every request.

"Right now we need donations to build up the fund," says Stratman. "We can't give it away if we don't have it. Magicians are a generous lot, and now is the time to show it." Please send check donations in any amount to: Mike Stratman, Magicians Support Fund, 126 Coyatee Circle, Louden, TN 37774, USA.

TAOM Convention Updates and "The Expert" Documentary

During this past weekend, I attended the annual convention of the Texas Association of Magicians which was held near Dallas, Texas. As usual, I posted daily updates so you could get the feel of the event even if you were not in attendance. There were so many guests and fun chats that I know you will enjoy with people like Katalina Absolon (of Christian and Katalina), Naathan Phan (from Penn & Teller Fool Us), and Gregory Wilson (who gives us an update since our controversial podcast series a couple years ago). We also get a full lecture by David Charvet on the "Willard the Wizard" dynasty.

You can hear them all at:
Day One: https://www.themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/379-day-one-2017-taom
Day Two: https://www.themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/380-day-two-2017-taom
Day Three: https://www.themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/381-day-three-2017-taom
Day Four: https://www.themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/382-day-four-2017-taom

This week's podcast is fresh and current. Jim Davey just launched a crowd funding campaign to raise funds for his film documentary predicated on finding the identity of the author of "Expert at the Card Table". Some of the work has been done but there are many more people he hopes to interview and roads he wants to go down to try to uncover the real "S.W. Erdnase". The Indiegogo campaign can be found at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-expert-documentary-magic-cards#/ But in the podcast, Jim Davey talks about his work to date plus, at the end of our original chat, he gives us an update on the perks offered to those who contribute.

You can watch a "sizzle trailer" of the documentary, see some photos, get some links, read the blog, listen to the podcast online and download the MP3 file at: https://www.themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/383-the-expert

Message by Paul A. Lelekis

This is Part 2 of a three-part series for Lybrary.com

Entertainment is the Key!

Paul A. Lelekis

- Magical Entertainment -

Directing Spectators through Your Magic World:

(Refer to last week's, Part 1…it all ties together!)

O.K. - you've made your way through the introductions and you've put the spectators on your side and made them relax. Now it's time to "set up" your first trick.

Your first effect is, preferably, an effect that involves your spectator - but not too much involvement. This could be any form of participation, but realize she will be a little tentative - so try to make her involvement, minimal.

You may note that I almost always refer to spectators as "she". I prefer female spectators…they are normally more responsive, willing to engage in the fun - and react the best!

I am unsure of other countries…but in the States, the men normally like for the entertainer to use his spouse, or date, or sister, etc. because he would rather have them to be entertained…and it's kind of expected! "Take care of the women" and you'll probably be alright!

You may begin by telling a story or setting up the effect by asking your spectator a question that will involve her as it relates to your patter.

Be reminded that this first effect will involve the spectator, but you do not want to make her a sucker or have her too involved.

She will be a small part of the trick but you should not make her talk too much, or be too participatory in your proceedings.

Everyone will be a little tentative at first…but it's your job as an entertainer to subliminally help them to relax and enjoy the show!

A great trick to start with is a sponge ball routine such as my routine, My Sister's Meatballs found in my e-book, Close-Up Journey II, found at Lybrary.com. It is a real winner! And the spectators love it!

My above routine is interactive, has great story line, and doesn't involve the spectator too much - and it puts the "props" in the spectators' hands which is a huge advantage for entertainment!

Since some of the magic does occur in her hand…she WILL be quite amazed! This will break the "ice" for sure! Then those spectators suddenly become eager participants! *

*NOTE: It is important to make your spectators eager to participate…BUT you have to "contain" this eagerness to prevent your spectators from becoming too aggressive with the "fun"! This eagerness may upset a lot of performers (even 'top' ones) but do NOT confuse it with being a heckler! It most often is not! But you must control the "speed and flow" of your performances. This will keep "eager-beavers" in check!

Another excellent trick when a child is in the group, is - Inspector #1953 in my e-book, A Fix On Six! This is another amazing effect…but uses the child present.

This gives you automatic acceptance, for whatever group or table you are performing! This routine can be found in my e-book, A Fix on Six. Children are a very easy venue for approaching spectators. always use the children for acceptance if present…they love to have fun!

Whatever opener you decide upon, make sure it is a strong effect with good interaction but doesn't involve the spectator TOO much. It is how you present yourself and your patter that is more important than the effect!

My good friend, the late Joe LaMonica was a superb magician, mentalist, and hypnotist. He told me about a tour he did with the Great Kreskin and how Kreskin would perform three or four "average" tricks in a 45-50-minute show.

Joe said that even though the tricks he performed were easy-to-do tricks, everyone left his shows feeling as if they had witnessed miracles! Why? Because of how he addressed his spectators and made the spectators believe what he said!

Joe also did a European tour, opening for Milbourne Christopher, and he said that he had the same influence on his audiences.

Joe said that Mr. Christopher would practice, backstage, taking bows, instead of worrying about his material!

This may appear arrogant…but Mr. Christopher said that "It's not just the tricks you do…it is HOW you present them!" Wise words!

What did he mean by this? I believe it to be a "marriage" of the way you present your material (presentation and believability) and the performer's ability to "key-in" on the spectators' acceptance.

When I use the term acceptance, it is something that will be different for each person for whom you perform. It is the performer's job to adjust his or her performing style, to each specific group or person.

The above concept is not easy to learn, but recognizing it is your first step toward fine-tuning your performances. No one said performing is easy…and those who think it is will eventually fail.

I'm not putting David Copperfield or Lance Burton into this category…people pay big bucks to see them and those spectators are already geared for fun and entertainment. Their jobs are for a more grandiose presentation with a lot of eye-appealing props, lights, girls, etc.

Once again, these men realized what is most important - not amazing the audience with how "clever" you are but presentation!

In finality, I want to provide a 'saying' to you, by a very wise person:

"People will never remember what you did or said, but they will always remember how you made them feel!"

Commit the above quote to memory - it is absolutely true!

6. Seeing Through The Eyes Of Another - #460 - Kyle Peron
Message by Kyle Peron (US)

Do you recall the moment when the magic bug bit? No, it is not really an insect and it certainly does not bite anyone. However, it represents that moment in time when you knew that magic was not something you "wanted" to do but rather something you "had" to do.

Do you recall where you were? Do you remember what you were watching or who was on the stage? Do you remember the feelings you had at that very moment in time? Chances are you probably do. If you are like me, it probably puts a smile on your face every time. It is that moment we become true fans of the art of magic.

I recall the exact moment it happened for me, but that is not what this article is all about. Rather it is about how we tend to lose that passion over the years and how we can be blind to the wonderment of it all. It is about how we forget what it was like the first moment magic ever meant anything to us. How it made us feel inside.

So why do we lose this passion and desire? Well one can say we get accustomed to it. The more we do magic the more we tend to take it all for granted. The passion sometimes takes a back seat to the realization that we must bring in money to pay the bills. The desire is sometimes lost because we spend so much time trying to fool fellow magicians instead of entertaining audiences. The reasons are as vast as the magic effects we love so much.

But the other day the passion and wonderment of this art form came back to me like a flood. It was as if the gates opened up and I could see through the eyes of that young child long ago who fell in love with magic. All the emotions and all the joy were right there again as if it had just happened.

The amazing thing about all of this is that it was not anything I really did. In fact, it was finding that passion through the eyes of another. That other person was my wife Kelly. Kelly and I have been magical partners for years now performing vast numbers of shows every year. We enjoy it and the roles we play in each performance.

Several months ago, Kelly decided to begin the journey of developing, creating and performing her first ever solo show for the day care market. As a day care teacher herself, we both felt she would be a natural at it. Watching her go through the process was an amazing and enlightening experience for me.

We worked together to develop a character and style independent of me and tuned to herself. We developed routines and effects that highlighted her desire and love for storytelling. As I saw her go through the process, the smile on my face grew and grew. I wasn't really sure why I was feeling this way at first until one day it all became clear. I was seeing magic all over again through her eyes.

The more she laughed the more I laughed with her. The more she smiled the more I smiled. When she had passion for learning a new effect, I too felt that same passion. I could literally see the joy and wonderment of our art simply by watching her experience it herself.

It is so easy for us to forget the passion we once had. It is so easy to lose that love we had when that magic bug first bit. No matter how many years we end up performing magic, we must never lose sight of what it was like for us that very first time. That desire needs to transcend into every performance we do.

I am not sure if the magic bug can ever bite someone more than once....but if it can, I think it took a big chunk out of me again.

As always, I encourage you the readers to let me know your thoughts. So, if you have any thoughts on my articles or suggestions or comments, please feel free to e-mail me directly at kylekellymagic@gmail.com. I would love to hear from you.

8. History of KIDabra In Lead Story of September Linking Ring
Message by Dennis Schick (USA)

Mark Daniel and the history of KIDabra are the subjects of the cover story of the September 2017 issue of The Linking Ring, the monthly magazine of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. Known to other magicians as the brains behind KIDabra, North Carolina magician Mark Daniel is equally known by other children's magicians as the one who made performing for children respectable. Read how he discovered his life's calling, and how it developed into KIDabra. There are fifteen great photos, too, in addition to the one on the cover.

The Linking Ring editor Sammy Smith tells us how to bring a dead fly back to life (sorta); and new IBM International President Bob Patterson summarizes some of his recent travels.

When Celeste Evans -- one of the best female magicians of all time -- died July 25, The Linking Ring editors knew they would publish a memorial tribute to her. Then when world-class magician Eugene Burger died August 8 -- just fourteen days later -- another tribute developed. Both appear in this issue, with many historic photos. These underscore one of the things The Linking Ring does best -- salute and preserve magic history.

Other features in the September issue of The Linking Ring include one on the Milbourne Christopher Awards; and continued coverage of the I.B.M.-S.A.M. Combined Convention (fifty-four photos over eleven pages).

A last-day addition to the September issue was a half-page request for contributions to the Magicians Support Fund in order to have money to send to magicians who have special problems and needs because of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and all along the Gulf Coast. Past International President Michael Stratman continues to serve as chairman of the independent group of "magicians helping magicians".

Columns this month include Bev Bergeron (Cutting Up Jackpots), with "Who invented the Brak-A-Wa Wand and other jewels?;" Marketing Magic by Kent Cummins, ("Think BIG!"); Scott Hood (The Therapy Of Magic) teaches Linking Paperclips as therapy; Skip Way brings us "Meeting Maslow" in Polishing The Rings; Dr. Lynn Miner continues his Magic Words Matter with "Scripting: A Four-Step Template;" Mike Powers passes on "The Willis Kenney Deceptive Control" in his column The Card Corner; in his column Simple Diversions, Andrew Woo teaches how to always win a flipped coin ("Heads-od-Tails?"); in Auto-Magic, Michael Breggar brings "Two Part, Part Two," about the "Spot Change" effect; and in Ring Resources Dr. Lynn Miner gives a number of tips on how to get more out of your I.B.M. membership.

The Linking Ring is a membership benefit of the I.B.M., the largest magic membership organization in the world. For more information, go to www.magician.org.

12. Walter Blaney Display At David Copperfield Museum
Message by Walter Blaney (US)

During the big Magic Live Convention in Las Vegas, David Copperfield invited me to see his current show at the MGM Grand Hotel. And it is simply astounding. No mere words can describe it adequately.

Then David drove me over to his museum (David Copperfield's International Museum and Library of Conjuring Arts). David walked me into the new section where he just finished setting up the Blaney tribute display. About 20 top magician friends had been invited, and they were all waiting for us to enter. All my "magic stuff" is beautifully displayed... a mannequin of me is seen, dressed in my tux, Western Boots and Stetson, silver vest and Texas T-tie. and I am holding up my fake, stiff lasso I opened with at every show for all my long career. A video tape showing each of my various trick inventions and illusions is shown running continuously in the background.

My original Ladder Levitation and Hoop are there, and my Blaney Sawing, plus my whole Instant Texas Act props. David made a very kind toast to me, with champagne for all. Then he asked questions about some of the Instant Texas Act props.

Soon I was showing him how I switched a fan of regular size cards into the big Texas size "Fan-To-See" cards. David stood by me holding a tricky-tray and box. He then moved the box forward to make the secret switch I used. All of a sudden it dawned on me that I was demonstrating this trick, just like on my show, but my assistant helping out was David Copperfield. It was a truly memorable moment for me and everyone there. David was just a kid again, playing with all the "magic toys". I and everyone there were just delighted with all the fun we were having. For me it goes down as one of the most memorable experiences in my long magic career.

And we got it all on video tape, and soon there will be a DVD of this special occasion. Long live my dear friend David Copperfield. David, you made an 89-year-old magician a very happy man indeed.
