Toronto: Julie Eng a Life in Magic

From the AGO:
Wednesday March 11

Julie Eng was literally born into the world of magic. Her father, Tony Eng, a famed magician on the West Coast, also had a magic shop for many years in Victoria, BC, called Tony’s Trick and Joke Shop. Julie grew up learning and performing magic side-by-side with her father, behind the counter of the shop, and emerged from this family apprenticeship an accomplished magician in her own right. “I wasn’t delivered by a stork, I was pulled out of a hat,” she jokes now about this unusual artistic upbringing. Join Julie as she considers—through the kaleidoscope of her varied experiences and unique perspectives as a woman of Chinese heritage—her singular life in magic.

Save the date:  Thursday March 26.


From the Toronto Magic Company Facebook post:
Do you have tickets to our Mario the Maker Magician show?

Mario’s family show is unlike any magic you or your kids have ever seen!

Mario combines the worlds of entertainment and STEAM to inspire and encourage kids to make and create without limitations.

Known for his clever integration of DIY tech into his show, Mario used techniques such as 3D design and 3D printing, Arduino programming, and other DIY electronics to create his unique, robotic props that interact with him and his audiences.

It’s magic through the lens of the Maker Movement. Mario has appeared on Sesame Street and NBCUniversal’s Sprout and even opened for David Blaine on his latest North American tour.

Houdini's water torture cell in Canada?

From the January 29th post "A Water Torture Cell has been discovered in Canada " by John Cox at Wild About Harry:
Today I have something truly astounding to share. Below are photos of what appears to be an exact duplicate of Houdini's Water Torture Cell. This was purchased from an elderly man in Canada who, unfortunately, would not provide any information about where he got it. The buyer of the cell wishes to remain anonymous. I have NO idea if this is the biggest find of all time or the biggest fake. But there are aspects of this cell that are very intriguing.
