Could it be? Could it be a brand
new 4tvs set? It's only been what...a YEAR? Ooh
wait..most people out here think it's all new...I'll
shut up now. LOL.
First of all, go start
loading the movie NOW. Ya see, I know
it takes 5-6 WHOLE minutes to load...but
if you start it NOW before you start
reading the entry..it'll be done before
you are. So click
here and get it
started...then minimize that page and come
back to pappa...k?
So a neighbor of mine,
Padraic, knocks on my door and tells me
I'm coming to The Magic Castle with him.
Well, as you all know I've been bored
pretty shitless since Jess has been away
at training (she comes back TODAY!) - so
I was game. I had to dress in my SUIT
to go...pretty ritzy place I guess.
Little did I realize that
this was the premiere magic spot in the world. This
huge mansion with rooms upon rooms of magic acts and
shows to see. Rooms for just close-up magic, and
bigger rooms for bigger stunts. It was pretty cool.
Now as you all could guess, being that at one point in
my life I've wanted to be EVERYTHING...I wanted to
know magic when I was a kid. Big time. Learned
all I could, and the thing that always got me was the
sleight of hand shit. Insane. I could KIND OF do
it, but the pros are well...pros at it. Highly
frustrating. Being that's the key to all magic, I was
kind of S.O.L. But still took interest in
As an adult...I hated seeing
magicians...they always pissed me off. They act all
cocky when the trick is always just that...a trick.
And most of all I couldn't figure it out. That irked
me. I truly never liked the BIG magic stuff because it
was on such a scale that it didn't matter. Like the
Statue of Liberty in '86? Yeah, great one Copperfield.
I'm so amazed sitting at home.
So what was it like? Well, the
close-up stuff was great. Nothing truly NEW, but done
very well. I understood most of the tricks, but was
still amazed at the fluidity that these guys pulled
them off. And the whole quarter palming thing is the
shit. I can only imagine the hours that
Well the moral of all this was a
few of them SUCKED. So much so that the whole time, I
was sitting there thinking: "you know I could do
this a lot better than this clown..." Which of course
led to thoughts of 4tvs...and eventually realizing I
could do an entire bit with the 4tvs and magic that
would be funny as shit. So I'm laying in bed thinking
about it, and finally I just couldn't begin to sleep
so I had to get up and make a video
JUST FOR YOU. Yes...nothing I can use in my
act....just a way to get my ideas on tape and make
myself laugh. It is rather amusing.
But I'm thinking I may very well
be able to pull of an entire 15 minute magic act set.
With some actual cool magic as well as just complete
BS and arguing between LIVE Adam and a TV. The catch
to all this, is I think I can pull this ALL off before
my show next Thursday. How cool would that be! Ahh the
joy of a new set. How fun. And another direction. I'm
realizing now that I can leave an audience with
SO MUCH going through their head. "Dude I saw
this guy the other day performing with
televisions...he did music, and comedy, and
magic...and it was incredible..." A complete
bombardment simply screaming:
"DO SOMETHING WITH ME"
"I'M A GOOD INVESTMENT" -

So there's your entry #85. Oh, and
I say the "F" word in the movie...so beware.
Funny..it's actually the first time I've ever audibly
cussed on this website...but I must admit it's worth
it. It's truly the clincher for the 60 second movie.
And lookeee there...it's already loaded...almost...you
should be about 75% there on a 56k modem.
