That, is Eric Jones – demonstrating a little something we’ve codenamed ‘That thing’. ‘That thing’ happens to be our biggest, exclusive release in 5 years. It’s been developed in house by our very own Jason Brumbalow, and it’s been kept under wraps for the last year. It enables you to do things that no other ‘that thing’ has done before – and it arrives in store in just over a month’s time. For Magic Live attendees though – it arrives for you, Today. To quote Apple – this changes everything… Again.
This year’s Magic Live marks the 20th year of Magic Magazine, and the 5th year of the convention itself, and having been to previous years – there was no way we were going to miss an anniversary year. We’re set up in the dealers room at the Orleans Hotel, drawing straws to see who’s going to be manning the booth. Who’s going into watch the shows. Who’s going to watch the lectures. Who’s going to stack a plate full of lobster-sized shrimp at the famous Las Vegas Never-Ending-Buffet Tables and bring it back for everyone else. Yeah, the important questions.
This year we’ve got some new Swag to giveaway to a few lucky Magic Live attendees who pop their head in and say a friendly ‘Hi’ to us at the booth. Us being Jason Brumbalow, Eric Jones and Peter McKinnon. Oh – and some guy called ”Brad Christian.” You might have seem him on a DVD… or ten. Swing by and get your name in the draw – we’ve got some Gold Arcanes, Red Artifices and a few extremely rare Gold Artifact coins to giveaway. We’ve also got some new, 100% Biodegradable, nicely printed bags so you can cart away your goodies – either those you win, or those you buy at our table. The guy who makes them said they’re made out of Potato Starch… They got us hooked – but we think they could do with a little salt.
So if you’re in the area, come on by and check out ‘That thing’. Check out Eric’s bottomless palms. Ask to see Jason’s surf rash. Rub Peter’s amazing technicolor beard (we hear it’s the genius behind the camera work) – or ask Brad how he’s managed to get by so long without an iron at home. Magic Live runs from August 14 to 17, at the Orleans hotel, Las Vegas.
