Claudia Schiffer a Man?

Infinite Gals and Infinite Cars

Can you do us a favor?  We have a bet with these men who run a “mini-casino” from the back of our barber’s shop that we will not triple the number of subscribers to Inside Magic’s Daily News in one week.  The bet is a long shot, we agree, but a lot less of a long shot than betting our bones would heal correctly enough to walk without a noticeable limp should they accidentally break.  You will recall that Detroit was where Nancy (“Wwwwhhhhhhhyyyyyy????!!!!”) Kerrigan got whacked.  I’m not saying nothing but things happen.

 

Anyway, our bet was sort of a way to get out of another bet that we lost.  We thought it was the Cubs’ year for sure. 

 

If you would like to save the editorial staff and ownership of the only web page and newsletter that is willing to discuss how David Copperfield may have tried to make Claudia Schiffer into a feminine man, send the news letter to at least three of their friends.  In the meantime, we’ll practice talking without moving our tongue or jaw ? as if it is wired shut. 

 

 

Magician Uses Wand and Condom to Increase AIDS Awareness.  Kaushik Shukla wants to spread awareness about AIDS and the methods that can be used to prevent its transmission.  Mr. Shukla has performed magic since 1999 but he did not have this educational mission until about a year and a half ago.  ??Two years ago, I met with an accident. It was a miracle that I survived. That?s when I felt that the new lease of life was definitely for a purpose,?? he said.

 

Coincidentally (or perhaps not) NGO Population Services Information asked him to conduct an AIDS awareness program directed at migrant laborers.  ??I had to brush up my knowledge on the subject and use my tricks to attract their attention to the issue,?? he said. ??During the magic show, I make references to the hows and whys of HIV to get the labourers curious. Like, suddenly a red sock appears on my foot and I say “I am not used to wearing red socks, but we should develop some habits, one of them is using a condom.??

Mr. Shakla estimates he has performed his AIDS Awareness show for about 22,000 laborers.

Ian Balls

Manchester Magician joins the Circle. Manchester magician Ian Ball has been accepted to become a member of the world famous Magic Circle.  Mr. Ball is based in Mossley, Greater Manchester, where he specializes in entertaining at corporate events, weddings and private functions.

 

“This has been an ambition of mine for quite a while now,” Mr. Ball said. “To be vetted by your peers is daunting, but when those peers are members of the best known magical society in the world, The Magic Circle, it’s a hundred times worse.”

 

Do yourself a favor and check out Mr. Ball’s two-part website.  Half of it is set to market for parties, trade shows and clubs.  The other half focuses on his unique work of entertaining at weddings.  I really like the way it is set up ? great idea starter.

Jadugar Anand

Jadugar Anand Continues to Gain Headlines.  We discussed Jadugar Anand last week as he began his foray of Magic and Illusion through the southlands of India.  His campaign is gaining great support from the press.  News Today of India has an extravagant article about Mr. Anand, his dedication to the study and performance of magic, and his awards for being the world’s fastest magician. 

 

To hear Mr. Anand speak, is to hear the same message as that offered by other great illusionists, such as David Copperfield, Sergey Korablev,  and the late Harry Blackstone, Jr. or Doug Henning. Mr. Anand told the paper, “magic is a pleasing and amazing art and an exhibition of practised skills, where the laws of nature are seemingly set aside for innocent entertainment . . . is only an illusion created to cheat your eyes as in illusion it is the eye which see a thing and conveys the message to the brain.”

 

Mr. Anand has presented over 26,000 stages across 36 countries.  That is a far cry from the days when his parents almost literally killed him for showing interest in magic and for deciding to take it as a profession.

 

Mr. Anand hopes to legitimize magic in those regions of India where it is not seen as a decent profession.  “It is the social status, security, and uncertainty of income that create a sense of fear thereby downsizing the field of magic. This could be changed only by establishing magic as an art form and establishing an academy for magic in all the provincial capitals of the States.”

 

Quoting a classic exhortation, Mr. Anand ended the interview: ‘Whatever work you do, do it as perfectly as you can. That is the best service to find divine in man.’

Sanraj

Sanraj Appears in Oman.  Sanraj has toured with his magic and illusion show around the globe in the past 25 years and now has decided to take on the Middle East.  His “Horror Magic Show” is titled specifically for his new audience, “The Dragon in the Gulf.” 

 

Sanraj has more than 5,000 shows under his belt and is the holds many prestigious awards including: The Jadu Ratna from the North Indian Magic Circle; the Best Magician of the Year Award from the Kerala Sangeetha Nataka Academy; the Best Performance Award from the International Magic Convention, Dubai; and the Best Magician from the German Magic Circle.

 

Some readers of Inside Magic may remember Sanraj for his spectacular illusions and escapes: he transformed a train engine into an elephant, he caused the famous Indian Gate disappear for 60 seconds and performed a jailbreak from a notorious prison in Kerala. 

 

Okay, sure.  But what makes up a “Horror Magic Show”?  Oh, the usual: “His usual numbers include shoving knives into stunning girls, sawing them in half and chopping their heads!”

 

Samraj, formerly George Samuel, says the secret to these effects is hypnotism.  (Coincidentally, Mr. Anand denies that he uses group or mass hypnotism in his act).  He has perfected the hypnotic science so well that he was able to quit his position as a civil engineer in the Gulf to become a full-time magician. 

 

He admits, though, that “anyone can perform these amazing feats, provided one has interest, aptitude and dedication.”  He refuses to reveal the secrets, however, because once the “trick is revealed the charm of magic is lost.”

Claudia

Queen of Argentina TV Mistaken for Copperfield’s Ex.  Quantum physics postulates that given an infinite amount of chances, a 1974 Ford Maverick could drive through a solid (or not so solid) brick wall.  Each molecule of the classic Ford would pass through each space between each of the brick wall’s molecules.  That’s not a hypothetical situation; that’s reality, baby.

 

Although the scientists at UC Berkley used the boss vehicle for their time, the 5.0 2v 302 equipped 1974 Ford Maverick, they meant to express a universal truth.  The Maverick would pass through the wall, given an infinite number of chances. 

 

Okay, so here is another, more up to date, illustration.  David Copperfield, magician par excellence, could turn his beautiful fianc?, Claudia Schiffer, into a six-foot Argentinean transsexual given an infinite number of encounters. 

 

That’s part one. 

 

Flor

Under quantum physics, given an infinite number of situations and cosmic dynamics, it is not just possible but it  will actually happen that Mr. Copperfield will want to turn his very much a female, woman, girl friend into a transvestite. 

 

But there is more to our hypothetical. 

 

You must also accept that given the infinite number of situations, assuming Mr. Copperfield was successful in his vulgar attempt at desecrating beauty; audiences in Argentina would mistakenly believe that the transvestite looked like the second most beautiful woman in the world. 

 

Suddenly the high-revving Ford Maverick heading towards a mason’s monument to solidity is looking like a safer bet, eh?

 

Well, according to The Chicago Tribune, that is exactly what happened.  A Ford Maverick was driven at a speed of 72 miles per hour at a brick wall and crashed into small bits.  But at the same time, Mr. Copperfield’s audiences in Argentina believed the newest television sensation, Florencia de la V, was formerly Mr. Copperfield’s incredibly, breath-taking, lovely ? but in an innocent, playful kind of way, not at all like someone who was really a man kind of way ? fianc? at the time. 

 

The word on the street was that Ms. De la V (which in Spanish means, “of the V”) was once the sweet but precocious Ms. Schiffer.  In fact, Ms. De La V was actually once the less than feminine Roberto Carlos Trinidad. 

 

When Ms. De la V was asked to confirm the rumors by the Rolling Stone magazine, she denied the story but with “with the ambiguous smile of the hunters of fame.” From that moment forward, she was a pop celeb in Argentina.
