A few quick hits to catch up from a crazy weekend:
- David Blaine is credited with helping the soccer team Chelsea F.C. (apologies to our U.K. readers for our unabashed Americanism) get a win over Aston Villa. Blaine was part of a team building exercise assembled by team manager Guus Hiddinck.
- Blaine was also in Britain for the Blackpool magic convention, where iTricks’ Andrew Webb scored an interview. In it, Blaine said, well, not much. He does not have a close-up show scheduled for 2011, but he’ll be doing something, and he’ll be very busy.
- Yesterday, Bangalore, India magicians celebrated Magicians’ Day by honoring P.C. Sorcar, the father of modern Indian magic. Sorcar will also be featured on a special postage stamp.
- Some good food for thought: Bizzaro, the Optical Illusionist, wrote an interesting piece about the difference between style and character on his blog. It’s worth a couple of reads and some memorization.
