Bullets: Great gig, Burton’s boon, Angel’s deaths, future card sharp

Because the home base of the Ellusionist blog is so close to the world’s largest sporting goods store, that means we have an abundance of bullets:

Bullets: Great gig, Burtons boon, Angels deaths, future card sharp

  • Congratulations to Dover magician BJ Hickman, who will be performing at the Cocheco Arts Festival, in Dover, Del. for the 35th consecutive year. The Magic Castle regular calls the event his “favorite gig.”
  • Can’t blame this disappearance on America’s Got Talent’s suspected hatred of magicians: Nathan Burton has disappeared from the show. Dodd Vickers at the Magic Newswire tells the reason why: Dude signed a sweet contract extension at The Flamingo in Vegas. Good on ya!
  • iTricks, always a solid source of information on everything mind-freaky, has a breakdown of the five ways Criss Angel will die during season five of Mindfreak. We were really hoping for something that involved fire ants. Or sponge bunnies.
  • TLP, official wife of the Ellusionist blog’s chief wordmonkey, found the below video of a future card sharp. We suspect this kid is a distant relative of De’vo. Our favorite moment happens at about :14.

  4. Wow, that’s awesome about BJ Hickman. I remember seeing him when I was in Kindergarten and he was my inspiration to get into the field of magic.

  5. Oh, little typo. The festival is in Dover, New Hampshire, not Delaware.
