A few months ago Mr. Masuda let me know that he was going to be producing a new version of his hit trick Wow. I loved the original, so I was really excited to see what the new gimmick looked like and what it could do. I was shocked to find out that he wanted me and the Magic Geek team to make the instructional DVD to go along with the new gimmick. Not only would this mean that I would get to play with the new gimmick before anyone else, but I also got to come up with new routines for the trick.
Let me just say that the new gimmicks did not disappoint. The new routines and effects possible are not only visually stunning, but entirely under your control. Whether you want a flash-change ending to your ambitious or a slow morph to a color changing deck, it’s entirely up to you.
Anyway, I finished the DVD and sent it off to the printers and the next day I get this little package wrapped in beautiful blue bunny rabbit paper. Inside was a Maneki Neko or “Beckoning Cat”.
This awesome little ceramic kitty is sitting over my office door on its comfortable little pillow. It’s left paw is raised which I think is supposed to bring in customers, which is strange because we’ve gotten a few more orders since I put it there. Spooky…
We all want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Masuda for the thoughtful gift that now brings a touch of elegance and luck to my otherwise chaotic office.
