Flying Boxes & Saying Goodbye to a Friend


I am on cloud nine. I’m excited about a new stage illusion we landed as an EXCLUSIVE that’s been elusive to me for over a year. Only a select few people had it, and I wanted it for our customers.

I’d seen the Flying Box Illusion on the YouTube and been aware of it for quite some time. But I could not get my hands on it to save my life — until now!

A true marvel, the Flying Box Illusion is not only an astonishing and surprising way of introducing your assistant, but an authentic and intriguing miracle that baffles anyone who encounters it!

This very ORIGINAL stage illusion is a unique approach to the classic levitation that I’m certain will send your audiences into ORBIT!  It’s definitely not your “run-of-the-mill” illusion. Featured for some time now on European television, the Flying Box Illusion is, in my opinion, the ideal compact illusion!

“But, why?”, you may ask.

BECAUSE — it’s loaded with all the VERY best features any illusionist could EVER desire; it’s completely PORTABLE, uses an EVERYDAY object (use ANY cardboard box), ideal for MULTIPLE stage settings, and is truly IMPACTFUL to onlookers as it seems entirely implausible.

We are hopeful that we will be able to bring the Flying Box Illusion to Magic LIVE! However, due to the limited number that are being made available to us, we’ll will just have to wait and see. We may very well sell out even BEFORE arriving at Magic LIVE!

Heat-Wave-Temperatures-on-ThermometerThe Heat Is On!

We are literally baking here in Fresno. And I see by the news, that we are not alone. This record-setting heat seems to come earlier each year. This weekend we are predicted to reach 108 on BOTH Saturday and Sunday. That’s way too hot. I’ll have to get out into the yard and water early before the sizzling heat starts roasting everything in sight.

This weekend is going to be hot!

This weekend is going to be hot!

Ordinarily, the heat doesn’t bother me, but triple-digit heat of this magnitude becomes a health hazard if you’re out in it too long. If you live out West, keep hydrated and indoors. This heat wave will pass, but not soon enough.

Sad News to Report…

One of magic’s greatest, Amos Levkovitch passed away yesterday.

World class magician and human being.

I got the news yesterday afternoon about Amos. It is very sad. I met Amos several times at the Magic Castle Swap Meet. He was always very happy and full of energy. I think that he was one of the nicest people I have ever had the privilege of meeting.

My fondest memory of him was several years ago when we did the Dealer’s Day at the Magic Castle, my son Max was about 13 or 14. Max was sitting at our table when Amos happened to walk up. I told him how Max was raising doves in our aviary. Amos immediately sat down with Max and spent over a half hour discussing how to train and care for doves. Max still remembers that meeting to this day.

Amos Levkovitch, originally from Israel, was unquestionably one of the top magicians in the world. He worked every venue imaginable: from private parties, to night clubs, cruise ships, television and the world’s greatest stages. If you were ever LUCKY enough to catch his dove act on a live stage, you know exactly why he became one of the busiest performers on the globe.

levkovitch_posterThere are many people that we meet in life, some for just a short time, and others longer. It’s the ones that are really special that you remember forever…Amos Levkovitch was one of those people.

It reminds me that we are here but a few short decades, so we have to appreciate the ones we love and appreciate while we still have them.

Please enjoy your weekend and the coming Independence Day holiday!

Until next time,
