Random thoughts from the Ring 17 year end banquet

  • The year end comes far too quickly.
  • People drive a long distance to come to these events.
  • A group of magicians is very good at entertaining themselves and each other during delays.
  • The young people today spell llama differently than I was taught.
  • The even younger people have a totally different approach to llamas.
  • La llama es una quadrupido
                                                   ... but I digress.
  • In their show "Sketchy Magic," Chris Mayhew and Chris Westfall give a crazy and high-energy performance as one would expect with individual lecture titles like "Calculated Chaos" and "Mayhew Mayhem."
  • Rumour has it that Chris Harvison, Andrew Goss and James Alan are back on the executive next year.  And that Phil Pivnick will be joining them.
  • Next season opens with a David Ben lecture.
  • Thank you Ring 17 for another great season!

Phil Pivnick and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

A reminder that donations to ALS research can be made at ALS.ca

From Phil Pivnick's YouTube channel:
So, my sister nominated me to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Make a donation, or dump a bucket of ice water on my head. Well, 8 hours later, I did both. 
This is the video of (sorta) getting ready for the Ice Bucket Challenge, and then dumping the ice over my poor little self.

Wendy's makes magic

Last summer, a number of Canadian magicians were involved in an ad campaign for Wendy's.

From Strategy Online:
Working with agency MacLaren McCann, Wendy’s auditioned 10 different magicians and asked them to incorporate the burger into their routines. The stunt was filmed, with each of the 22 magic tricks shot in one take, and uploaded to Facebook and YouTube over several weeks as part of the “Wendy’s Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger Magic Show.”

Those of you who were paying close attention, remember the following acts:

Which means we're 7 tricks short of the 22 shot.  According to the post at Reality Based Magic, at least one of those involves Mark Lewis.

Off to search the internet we go!
