Taking care of your props is very important for every seasoned magician. It doesn’t matter how many props you have or how big or small they are, the important thing is that you keep them in tip top shape.

With that, let me tell you about the story of my floating table. Perhaps it is one of my earliest expensive prop that I bought from a local magic shop. It looked nice and it could be very useful for a big show that I and my group will be doing, so I bought it without any hesitation. It was really a great piece and using it on stage was great.

After the show, I stored the table in our magic pod or what my group calls “Demaguz Bar and Cafe” Yes, we had a commercial magic place once but that’s a different story. I stored it there thinking that it would be safe. To my dismay, the table got broken into pieces. (more…)

While having a sip of coffee on a rainy day, I thought of going back to blogging. I’ve been in the blogging world 2 years ago or something. You may not know it but this blog reached over 100 posts. Though some of the posts were not related to magic or entertainment, some where write ups of my random musings and whatnot. I decided to delete all the blog posts and decided to stick to the magic niche. Trust me, I really did try to work it out and even decided to get my own hosting. But my job and other stuff got the best of my time and blogging became the least of my priorities.

Hopefully this time it’ll be more active. Cheers!

So here’s my ambitious start for natemarx blog 2.0. Let’s talk magic. I’d like to begin discussing about one of my favorite card magic plots, The Cannibal Cards. I’ve been into card magic right from the start. I guess that’s where most young and young at heart magicians begin their magic journey nowadays. Simply, because you can buy a deck of playing cards almost anywhere. Finding one isn’t that difficult.

I love classic card magic compared to the new trend of card magic nowadays that are fast and furious like most young magicians perform. I don’t intend to down throttle the fans of the Buck twins, its just that I love the Dai Vernon type of card magic. Flourishing or XCM has never been my genre.

The reason why I love this effect it’s because it portrays a slightly creepy tale of murder and deceit. It has comedy, suspense and packs a good kicker. I love effects that involve a lot of patter since it can attract your audience to be more focused and involved in what you are doing. Moreover, it explains the mystery why sometimes there are cards that are missing from the deck though the explanation itself is a presentation of a mystery. (more…)

If you are an avid reader of natemarx.wordpress.com then you might have noticed how indecisive I was about my blogging. Just realized that I don’t want to go through the same trouble and effort of creating backlinks and stuff to my site in order create traffic. I’ve been in and out of the blogosphere for quite some time since I’ve been busy with my online job, my magic group and my thesis.

This time I would like to focus on this site. If you noticed, I deleted the old posts that I made. Yes it was a lot of workload but I want to have a fresh start.

This is how I start things up. I try to remove the old stuff and go with the new ones. This blog will have a new appeal to it since I will be concentrating more on my passion and that is magic. Changes will gradually be implemented and new stuff will be introduced to give it a more magical appeal.

Hope you guys could bear with me.
