My Week In Magic - Update 61

I started the week by joining a Howard Hamburg lecture. My time was limited so I was only able to join for some of the meeting. It was also a part 2 lecture so as I had not attended the first. Hoping to catch up and watch a recording of part 1 of the lecture soon. An enjoyable lecture though.

I also attended an LMN Bring and Buy sale which was excellent. A very enjoyable evening and a great social as usual. I was able to pick up a couple of nice items from Pete Whitmore MMC.

Early in the week, I was also sad to hear of the passing of Phil Butler. An extremely funny and talented man. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to see him perform his routine mixing singing, comedy and magic. Very funny. Being near the front of stage, my wife and I were also picked on by Phil. He was supporting Paul Zerdin and was amazing. RIP Phil.

Collectables wise, my new Lance Burton signed photo arrived very quickly. It has been a good month for signed items in October. I Have updated the collectables section on the site and it is up to-date.

I also received a signed copy of the new Vinny Sagoo - Neo Magic book “Mind the Maths Magic”.

I‘ve already finished reading the book and I finished writing the review yesterday. A fantastic book with many maths magic effects.

Take a look here to read my review.

Have a good weekend.
