It is Here!

The 2004 Inside Magic Magician’s of the Year Award has come back from the foundry.  They did a great job with the crystal – beautiful crystal taken from somewhere in Europe – and did a great job with the engraving. 

 

We’re not sure what this has to do with Magic other than the recipients have been named the 2004 Magicians of the Year. 

 

It would be noteworthy and newsworthy if there were some controversy over the selection; but alas, we couldn’t find anyone who objected to the choice of Siegfried & Roy. 

 

The readers who wrote in support of the Duo disregarded the fact that their choice had not performed in 2004.  They all – and we mean all – felt Siegfried & Roy have done so much for Magic and for those of us who participate in the art.  We have never received so many emails (and one fax) on any subject as we did on this year’s selection. 

 

Remember how we said we would not necessarily defer to the selection of the readers for Inside Magic’s Magician of the Year?  Well, that went by the wayside in light of the tremendous number of pro Siegfried & Roy votes. 

 

We were going to select Kirsten Dunst for Magician of the Year if only for the chance to meet her when we handed her the trophy.  Unfortunately, the webmaster did not have her name on the list of nominees plus she did not do any magic at all in 2004 (or any other year). 

 

Not withstanding the missed opportunity to meet Ms. Dunst, we are so happy that one of our most favorite acts won the award this year.  Our readers were right to vote for Siegfried & Roy.  As we write this, we’re watching…

“With the advent of Siegfried & Roy, Vegas came alive.”

 

How can we possibly say more?
