“Any media-brainwashed automaton can summon the insipid courage to peer into the horrifying abyss. But it takes a freaking genius with a fearless imagination to peer into the maw of happiness.”
Greetings Magical friends,
Pictured here is Jeff, Jordan, David Copperfield, Eugene, and Tobias inside the secret magic museum.
SEEKERS OF MYSTERY
These Magic and Mystery School faculty had the pleasure and rare opportunity to explore David Copperfield’s fabulous private magic collection last week. For two and a half hours, David led us on an incredible journey through the history of mystery. David also performed some rare and exotic vintage magic, including the Carl Germaine Blooming Rose Bush illusion, culminating with live roses being presented to the ladies. Special thanks to David and his staff for allowing us this rare privilege!
MAGIC & HUMAN SACRIFICE
Jeff McBride on A&E MINDFREAK, August 21st.
This photo of Jeff and Criss was shot on location, during the “TRIAL BY FIRE” episode, which will air 8/21/07. Jeff not only consulted on this “Burned Alive” illusion which will be the feature of the episode, but also performed some thrilling fire magic as well. Check your local listings for details.
Criss was a special guest at our recent Master Class here in Las Vegas. He dropped in during our Las Vegas magic party, and spent time answering questions and sharing his life with our students. One of the things he shared that was how keeping a positive attitude has been a major key to his success; whatever was going on, he held onto his vision and his dream and stayed positive, and that has helped his to make his magic a reality.
MAGIC AT THE EDGE
This final photo is Jeff’s new billboard for the upcoming show at the Trump Marina in Atlantic City, NJ. We’ll be there August 2nd through September 2nd. We hope to see all of our East Coast friends at the show. Get your tickets now at
