Resolutions and Chimp Magic
As we end 2011 one of my resolutions is to once again re-acquaint myself with the magical arts. In the past year I haven't really been practicing at all. At the same time, early last year there was a joke where I mentioned the phrase "Magician 24/7" and it turned into a thing that led to the picture you see at the top of this article. On the other hand I learned a lot about how I can be practicing that will bring the joy back into magic. I got this insight from my study of improvisational comedy. What does this mean? It means in the coming year I am going to attempt a regular magic vidcast called JAMM Live. Where as the posts on my blog have the meaning of JAMM be Just Another Magic Monday the JAMM in JAMM Live will stand for Just Another Magic Meeting. This is because I don't believe Mondays will be a good day for me to do these on any sort of regular basis. I will figure it out in the next few weeks so keep an eye out for the vidcast. Also, look for more, regular JAMM posts on Mondays for this blog. [ad#Ellusionist]What about the fun? Well, since I am known for my interest in magic I do get interesting videos sent to me from time to time. So this week I leave you with a bit of Chimp Magic. This guy really blows the socks off of a chimp who just loves his act. Given that chimps process things differently than us, and as such don't have the same expectations, that is pretty dang cool. Enjoy... the chimp did.

Just kidding, just bringing the fun back to magic. Do you have any fun magic you'd like to share. Let me know in the comments below.
