  • Going Organic - Weekly Recap

    Posted on November 22, 2013 by Chris Ballinger

    This week we take a look at what it takes to make your magic more "organic."

    This week I recommended that you mentalists out there check out the DVD Emotional Intelligence. If you're looking for good organic-looking gimmicks, you should check out the Paul Harris Presents line. And for some non-gimmicked stuff check out the Daniel Garcia Project DVDs.

    I also talked a little bit about Heinstein's Dream which is a beautiful torn and restored card effect. You truly need to check it out. Another great trick mentioned this week is the Haunted Doll which has a demo that made Lena scream. (I truly do feel "this much" bad about it.)

    Also, I want to say congrats to the winners of the Five for Five Drawing: Pamela Pliska, JohnHenry Ford, Ronald Blan, Robert Busching, and Stephen Schulke. Good job, everybody, you're prizes are on the way!

    And let's not forget about that awesome Beat the Rush Sale that's going on right now. A percentage off PLUS free gifts within certain price points.

  • Giving Back for Movember

    Magic Geek will donate 25% of every Moustache sale to the Movember Fundraising project which raises funds and awareness to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.

    Get ready for a video that is just strange enough to feature in the Magic Geek blog.

    *Please note that this video was not produced by Magic Geek and contains some adult content and themes.

    Ali Azarvan and Tom Adams of Santa Barbara are part of Movember Foundation’s team the “Hot TomAli’s” and are rockin’ mustaches and rockin’ out to raise money and awareness for men’s health.

    “We love doing good and having fun while we do it!” said Azarvan.

    Currently the team is in eighth place in the nation for fundraising and working toward their goal of $100,000.

    Tom and Ali are good friends of the Magic Geek Family and we have decided to give 25% of sales Chris Ballinger's best selling Moutache magic trick for the entire month of November. So, all you have to do is purchase Moustache during November and 25% is going to the cause.

  • Afraid of Getting Caught - Weekly Recap

    Posted on November 8, 2013 by Chris Ballinger

    Congratulations goes out to Steven Marsh, winner of the El Capitan Mega Pack. If you didn't win, don't fret. We are hosting a Mystery Box Giveaway all weekend long, so keep it right here at Magic Geek and see how you can enter to win!

    Well, first off I guess I should talk about Sponge Balls themselves. If you don't have any yet, what are you doing?! They're great, versatile, and get a fantastic response. We have them is several different sizes: 1 Inch, 1.5 Inch, 2 Inches, 2.5 Inches, 3 Inches and each style comes in a variety of colors.

    Sponge Balls

    I also mentioned Oddballs by Scott Strange and the Steve Dacri Sponge Ball Tool Kit. Steve Dacri also has several instructional DVDs that are definitely worth checking out including No Filler Volume 1, No Filler Volume 2, and (you guessed it) No Filler Volume 3.

    And let's not forget my two favorite sponge routines: Mad Sponges and the 3-D Rabbit Set by Goshman.

    This week's featured trick was Inferno by Joshua Jay:

    I have to say, this routine impressed me. The perfect meld of psychology, gimmicks, and sleight of hand to created a magic trick with just one card. It's easy to carry around, instantly gets the audience's attention and works great.

    Be sure to leave your questions on Rope Magic.
