Houdini’s Vest?

I have written in the past of my admiration for our resident graphic artist, Becca. She is not just amazing, she?s incredible. Well, Becca has come up with a mascot for Inside Magic and his name is: _____. I have no idea.

I asked Becca and she put the pressure back on me. Like I need it. I?m still looking at the business end of a Visa bill that reflected that I used it to pay the Master Card that I used to pay my American Express that I used to buy a vest that was allegedly worn at one time by one of Houdini?s Assistants.

(There were just two bidders on it in eBay and I got it for an incredible amount of money but if it is real . . . You know, come to think of it, the other bidder had the same email address as the seller and dropped out right after I made the last bid.)

Anyway, I?m back. Sorry, I was just thinking about the Warren Commission and how we normally dismiss conspiracy theories but sometimes it could be that there is actually a conspiracy that we?re missing. I doubt that the seller of the Houdini Assistant Vest was actually bidding me up and then blew the scene when we hit the limit of my newly-acquired Platinum American Express Card. I would feel really badly if the Visa card that I?m using was actually mine.

I have written in the past of my admiration for our resident graphic artist, Becca. She is not just amazing, she?s incredible. Well, Becca has come up with a mascot for Inside Magic and his name is: _____. I have no idea.

I asked Becca and she put the pressure back on me. Like I need it. I?m still looking at the business end of a Visa bill that reflected that I used it to pay the Master Card that I used to pay my American Express that I used to buy a vest that was allegedly worn at one time by one of Houdini?s Assistants.

Anyway, I?m back. Sorry, I was just thinking about the Warren Commission and how we normally dismiss conspiracy theories but sometimes it could be that there is actually a conspiracy that we?re missing. I doubt that the seller of the Houdini Assistant Vest was actually bidding me up and then blew the scene when we hit the limit of my newly-acquired Platinum American Express Card. I would feel really badly if the Visa card that I?m using was actually mine.

Anyway, I thought the mascot looked like ?Mr. Noodle? from Elmo?s World. (You with kids will get that). But he must have a name. Right, I mean, even Melissa A. Martinez ? the ?rightful owner? of the Visa I?m using ? has a name. (It?s ironic that we would consider someone a ?rightful owner? if they don?t even check to see that their card is in their wallet after they buy a Double Gulp from 7-11. Would we call a mom or dad that left their kid on the counter of a convenience store a ?Rightful Owner? of that child?)

Anyway.

The winner of the Name the Mascot contest will win Volume One of the incredible Card College book ? still in shrink-wrap, so you know I?m not just turning over a book I finished.

We?ll keep the contest open until January 15th. That way we can announce the winner from the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas. I?ll try to talk Lance Burton into presenting the book to the winner by email. (I don?t know Lance and have no expectation that he would do what I wanted but I figured Google doesn?t search the entire page when it looks through the Internet so it might just pick up, ?Contest, Lance Burton, Seminar and Shrink-Wrap? and Inside Magic would be number one in most of the searches).

So, if you want to win a great book, help Inside Magic and be loved, send your name suggestion to mascotname@insidemagic.com

The decision will be made by the staff of Inside Magic and our decision will be final.

Final, just like buying something on eBay for more than you can afford because you love the history of our great Art and assume that it really was some piece of clothing worn by someone who assisted the greatest Magician ever. Anyway.
