Funny Things Kids Say

Monday, July 9th, 2012

One of the great things about working with kids is that you constantly have to stay on your toes! You literally never know what they’re going to say next…

Our shows are no exception! During and after our presentations we hear all kinds of crazy comments from kids! Here are a few of the ones that stick out… (more…)

 

iOS 5 Makes the iPad Even More Magical!

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Normally I don’t post other magician’s work. It’s not that I don’t enjoy watching it. I’m just not sure this blog is the place for it. I do have a personal blog where I post random junk I find interesting. I try to limit stuff here to things that relate directly to ShizDiz.

This though, is awesome. I’m posting this video because it’s an example of everything that’s right about the art of magic. The actual sleight of hand isn’t rocket science for those who are “in the know”. It’s the presentation that really stands out!

If you’ve spent any time on the site you’re aware of our interactive online magic tricks. We get a lot of positive feedback about this feature of the site.

Many folks can’t access them though. Either they’re behind a web filter that blocks access, their computer doesn’t support Flash, or both.

Today we’re remedying that situation. We’re releasing a brand new interactive magic trick that’s designed to be shared via e-mail!

This trick loads as a PowerPoint slide show, so nearly everyone should be able to view it. Check it out by clicking the link below, then share the fun with a friend!

It’s Just a Router Issue!

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Some of you may be aware that my background is actually in computer programming. These days I use those skills for Shizzle Dizzle Magic, but I don’t offer them professionally.

That has not stopped friends and family from believing that I’m their built-in 24 hour free of charge tech support line.

Believe me, some of these people are unbelieveable. I barely get one issue resolved before they are HARD AT WORK screwing something else up!

Happy New Year 2011!

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

2010 is soooo yesterday!

Everyone here at Shizzle Dizzle Magic would like to wish you the happiest of New Years! May 2011 bring you wealth, happiness, and health!

Now is probably a good time to discuss our New Years resolutions. It doesn’t matter that we’ll probably break all of them before the end of the week. The point is we made them!

Tis the Season to Return Bad Gifts!

Welcome to America’s second favorite shopping holiday! Haul back all the junk you don’t want! Use that gift card burning a hole in your pocket!

Honestly, the day after Christmas is crazier than Black Friday. The return line at Wal-Mart alone is enough to make me want to crawl underneath the covers until January!

In our family gift returns are a rarity. We start thinking through Christmas presents months in advance and only make purchases after weeks of internet research and deliberation.

We’re really detail oriented like that. It’s both a blessing and a curse, but it’s also why our magic shows are so awesome.

I found a hilarious article from the New York Times about bad Christmas gifts. There’s some pretty funny stories there.

Here’s my favorites:

It’s weird.

Yesterday we were reflecting on all the things in our lives we’re thankful for. Today we’re body checking people in the Sam’s Club parking lot to get first dibs on the box of cheap wrapping paper.

Does that seem messed up to anyone besides me?

YESTERDAY: Oh! I’m just so thankful to have such a wonderful family, and this delicious meal! All we really need is each other! I just couldn’t be happier…

TODAY: GET OUTTA MY WAY YOU *&/$@! PIECE OF %^&*#! THAT JUSTIN BIEBER DOLL IS MINE #@$*&!

Thanksgiving Day Appeal from Gus the Rubber Chicken

Hi! It’s Gus the Rubber Chicken here…

Typically these posts are made by my boss, Mystical Matthew. Personally I think his writing is pretentious and overly self indulgent. I’ve never been given so much as a proper introduction!

He’s a real jerk to work for. I put my life on the line every day performing incredible stunts! That’s not good enough for him though. He handed me an 82 page script that I was expected to memorize!

Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do. I just wish he’d be a little more appreciative. All I get in payment is a weekly allowance of rubber bands!

Carnival Game Scams I Hate Falling For

It’s a balmy summer evening.

The music is blaring. Lights flash all around you.

On your fingers is the sticky residue of cotton candy.

Your brain is racing from the sugar rush.

Out of the corner of your eye you see an inflatable SpongeBob Squarepants. Somehow, deep in your subconscious, a primal desire is triggered.

Suddenly you realize that you need an inflatable SpongeBob. It’s an insatiable lust. Without it, life will no longer have meaning…

Suddenly you hear a voice calling out to you…

“Hey! You look like a big strong guy! All you gotta do to win is knock over those three bottles! Easy as pie! That shouldn’t be a problem for a fella like yourself!”

You’re drawn in… Somehow, as if in a trance, you begin emptying your wallet. You have to prove your dominance. The carnival game begins. You have to walk away with that inflatable SpongeBob, no matter the cost or personal sacrifice.
