Yeah, Marco TEmpest is really cool. I really like his tricks.ReplyDelete
Amazing. It's been a long time since a magician has baffled me.ReplyDelete
Having Dedwarmo around kinda spoils magic, because he knows the tricks.ReplyDelete
I hear ya, but he won't give anything away unless you ask, right?ReplyDelete
I know how he does the umbrella trick. ;)ReplyDelete
He actually posted an Umbrella Trick Exposed video, but I'm sure you figured it out before that ;-)ReplyDelete
If you've figured out some of his other tricks, let me know. Micah and I always try to figure them out (Micah is actually very good at it).
I've only watched the one umbrella trick video. Now I want to go watch the Umbrella Trick Exposed video.ReplyDelete
We (my dad and I) figured out the umbrella pretty easily too and a few others, but some of them are amazing, like the one I posted on my blog. (http://micahmo.blogspot.com/2006/11/marco-tempest.html)ReplyDelete
