New TENYO Items for 2010

There is always a large following of people who anxiously wait for Tenyo Magic to release their small handful of products each year, and we just got a bunch of them in the MJM Magic store.




Floating Card - Get it here

Show a deck of playing cards to the audience, and invite a spectator to freely select one card. Place that card face-up onto the deck. Magically, the card slowly floats upward! You can even remove the card below the floating card, and the selected card remains suspended in mid-air. The selected card slowly returns to the deck. You can immediately spread the deck to show the faces of all the cards.

Normally $45, Our Price: $39.24



Shrinking Pen - Get it here



Show a pen to your audience. Ask your spectator to pinch the pen through the cloth of a handkerchief. As she pushes downward she feels the pen shrinking smaller and smaller. When the handkerchief is removed, the pen is seen to have really shrunk!



Normally $40, Our Price: $34.88




Illusion Truck - Get it here

Remove a lion figurine from the miniature circus truck. Drop the lion inside the folds of a handkerchief, and it instantly disappears! The vanished lion suddenly reappears back inside the truck!

Normally $50, Our Price: $43.61




Millionaire's Dream - Get it here



Fold up a dollar bill, and a quarter magicalAdd Imagely rises up from inside! Produce quarter after quarter from the same dollar bill. The last quarter that appears magically changes into another dollar!


Normally $45, Our Price: $39.24



China Surprise - Get it here

Push a sheet of tissue paper into your closed fist. On top of the tissue, you place a small green ball. Make a magical gesture, and... the tissue has transformed magically into a delicious looking shumai dumpling!

Some Unexpected Downtime - YIKES!!

Whoa, that was a little bit scary!

So this morning, I wake up in bed to the sound of my kids jumping on my mattress. I tried to lay there for as long as I could, but that's like trying to take a nap backstage at a Metallica concert. It ain't gonna happen.

So I mosey on out of bed, and as usual, I go to check out things with MJM Magic to make sure everything is working (when you run a business, there is no such thing as a "weekend off!").

To my shock and horror, I see that the website is down! Keep in mind that this is the first time this has happened in over a year. So immediately, after almost defecating myself, I get my wits about me and go into scramble mode.

Fortunately, I found a solution and I was able to get it back up in under ten minutes. That is the good news. The bad news (for us, at least) is that the site appeared to have been down all last evening, all throughout the night, and into this morning......so we missed out on a lot of sales.

At least we still have our Magic Cap DVD promotion well into effect (that's a GREAT deal......a $25.00 value being given away for spending only $100), and we plan to have other promotions through New Years to celebrate the holiday season.

Anyway, I just wanted to vent and inform you guys of what happened, in case you came to the site and it was down. We still don't know WHY it happened, because nothing changed on our side. I can only guess that the server did some kind of auto update and installed a newer version of something which conflicted with our software.

If you have ANY questions or concerns, just let us know through the CONTACT US form on our website. I'd be more than happy to clear anything up.

Happy Birthday, Brandi!


Shhhhh......she doesn't know that I'm secretly letting the cat out of the bag, but today is Brandi's 29th birthday!


For anyone who has ever shopped with MJM Magic, you most certainly know who Brandi is. She is the glue that keeps this operation together. You name it, she does it. From emails, to inventory management, to shipping/receiving!
So if anyone would like to wish her a happy birthday, simply go to our Contact Form and send her a birthday message! I KNOW she will get a kick out of it!
She is the only person I know who actually loves her birthday more than a fat kid loves ice cream. If you called her personal cell phone right now, she would answer the phone, "It's my birthday, where's my present?" No joke.
I actually called her yesterday and her voicemail said, "Hi, this is Brandi. You should be out buying a present for me right now instead of talking on the phone. Leave me a message!"
So if you want to leave her a message, just do two things:
1. Leave it to her through our Contact Form
2. Don't tell her you heard it from me!
Keep smiling,
- Jeff

Hi everyone! I just wanted to remind you that even though our website is ALWAYS open to take your orders, we will not be able to SHIP anything out on Thursday or Friday due to the Thanksgiving holiday here in the USA.

Our website is fully secure and automated, so all orders will be queued in the order they were received and they will be processed as soon as the holiday is over!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us through our website. Responses to emails after Thursday (during the holiday weekend) will be limited, but we will do our best to take breaks in between turkey dinners & family to answer as many as we can!!

Smoke and Mirror Cards - LUXURY Edition

Holy crap, every smoke alarm just went off in our store. I was about to call the Fire Department when I found out what happened: our first shipment of Smoke and Mirror Cards just arrived from Theory 11, and they are HOT!

Ever since the worldwide release of these a few weeks ago, all of our customers have been emailing us about these. "When is MJM going to get them in? Will there be enough left?"

Well, I am happy to say that we now have them in stock, and we ordered a TON of them. That's the good news!

The bad news is like all of our new releases, they go FAST! Especially with our cards, because a lot of customers will purchase three or more (one to keep unopened, and a couple to play with).

These outstanding cards come in two collector colors: black and white. (I know, technically black and white are NOT "colors," but you know what I mean!)

Pick up a few of each today, and remember, we offer FREE SHIPPING within the USA and Canada for orders over $15.00! Cheap affordable international shipping for everyone else:

New Killer Downloads


Ok, it's been a while since we've added to our downloadable products, but this week we're proud to bring you FOUR new ones for you to choose from. TWO are from the legendary Paul Harris, and TWO new effects are from Martin Adams. And best of all, there is nothing to ship. As soon as we process your order, you will have instant access to download and begin learning these the same day!

Bizarre Vanish by Paul Harris: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/bizarre-vanish-by-paul-harris-download-p-10430.html

The spectator sees their signed card get sandwhiched between two indifferent cards. They can even HOLD ONTO the card. It's clearly sandwiched perpendicular to the other cards. And yet, when the magician pulls the cards apart, the card vanished right out from underneath the spectator's grip!

Whack Pack by Paul Harris: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/whack-pack-by-paul-harris-download-p-10431.html

A nice twist on a staple of card magic! The spectator is shown a series of cards. They have a FREE choice to merely THINK of any of the cards. The magician then begins to deal them, one by one, onto the table, with the proposition that he (the magician) will be able to whack the card before the spectator can.

Once the card is dealt, the spectator always gets there first, seemingly winning the bet. But alas, the magician proves that he truly was faster than the eye could see, and displays the card safely in his hand!

What makes this effect so great is the fact that it's interactive, and the spectator has the magic happen literally right in their hands!

Travel - Mindreading by Martin Adams: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/travel-mindreading-by-martin-adams-download-p-10429.html

This is my personal favorite.

You introduce a card which is covered in standard recognizable places from the world.

Places like the Eiffel Tower, Niagara Falls, Stonehenge, and many others.

You just ask the spectator to do an imaginary trip to any of the nine famous sites. You ask them to imagine themselves to be there. You then slowly reveal their thought of place. Now you probably ask from yourself: What's new??? The good news is: NO MEMORY WORK AT ALL.* This is an effect that you are going to use and carry with you all the time!

This detailed ebook teaches you everything you need to know, to start performing this amazing mind magic trick right away. Includes colour design 'travel card' images to print out and use as much as you like!

Nexus by Martin Adams: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/nexus-by-martin-adams-download-p-10428.html

This is a multi-faceted download, giving you access to FIVE effects by Martin Adams. This is a collection of personal staple pieces that Martin has performed in his act Click the link above to see details on each effect.

Friday Recap: Hand Out 500


Is it really Friday? Wow, what a week we had! As you may know, the worldwide release of "Hand Out 500 by Steve Haynes" was released on Monday, and it's been literally flying off the shelves. Seriously. I actually saw one of them sprout wings and try to fly out the window before I wrestled it back to the ground!

I cannot say enough good things about this DVD. It's very well explained, and the effect is probably one of the best I've ever seen. It packs small, you carry it with you no matter where you're at, and there is an instant connection between you and the people you're performing for (because everyone understands money and the importance of it).

To me, one of the marks of a great effect is one that you can watch over and over, and even when you KNOW THE SECRET, you are still blown away by how visual and convincing it is. This is one of those tricks. I know how it works. I know all the moves. And yet, it still fools me when I watch it because it's THAT GOOD!

Most importantly though, when purchasing this effect, you're supporting not only us (thank you, thank you, thank you), but you're supporting a GREAT guy in Steve Haynes. I think this is an overlooked point that many don't consider. There are some real egotistical pumpkinheads out there who put out effects and think that they're one step away from sainthood. You don't realize that supporting certain creators (or companies) is directly feeding into that pompous attitude that they have.

Well, I am happy to say that Steve is not like that. He's a genuine nice guy. I sent him a text message this week, out of the blue, just thanking him for his contribution to the magic community, and within mere seconds, he called me back personally. We spoke for about 5 minutes while I was on the road, and to me, that meant a lot. He was very appreciative and sincere, and these are the kinds of people we put our efforts into supporting at MJM.

So once again, thank you Steve for the wonderful effect. And to those who haven't gotten it yet, we purchased a TON of these and they are going fast.........Ooops, there went another one!

Watch the demo video and pick it up right here: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/hand-out-500-by-steve-haynes-presented-by-paul-harris-dvd-p-10152.html

Holiday Hours: Veteran's Day


Is it Friday yet? We have been so busy with the worldwide release of Hand Out 500 that time seems to be slowing down!

Anyway, I just wanted to remind everyone that here in the USA, there is a national holiday tomorrow (Veteran's Day). Even though we will be open and working tomorrow here at MJM Magic, the US Postal Service will be closed and not doing any pickups or deliveries. Therefore, any order that would normally be scheduled to ship tomorrow will go out first thing on Wednesday.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us!

NOW AVAILABLE - Hand Out 500 by Steve Haynes



This is the hottest preorder effect we have sold in months, and it's finally here! That's the GOOD NEWS. The bad news is that out of all the stock that we purchased, 70% of it is already reserved for those of you who preordered it with us. That only leaves a small percentage left over for anybody that missed out on our preorder list.

Almost all stores are sold out of this and don't have it, but we still have some left! Don't miss this opportunity to grab one of the most visual pieces of MAGIC to hit the market.

There are many other effects like this one on the market, but only Steve Haynes' version removes all the bad angles, and doesn't require you to permanently gaff hundreds of dollars in bills to make this work! Once our inventory sells, there is no word when more will arrive (since 300 of them came and went LIKE THAT), so get yours today while we still got them.

Personal: Halloween Recap


Ok, I know, I am late with this, but I wanted to see how everyone's Halloween was? For me, being a dad of two kids, it's all about making the experience as magical and fun for them as possible.

Here is a quick shot of me walking with my youngest daughter, Katelyn.
<----------------------------
As you can see, there were a TON of kids in the neighborhood. Some of them were way too old to be trick or treating, if you ask me. Don't get me wrong, I am all for holding onto your youth.....but when you're old enough to grow a BEARD, then you should probably stop going door to door for candy, and stick to the adult halloween parties!
I think the weirdest thing we saw was when someone opened up the door and was VIDEO TAPING all the kids walk up to get candy. Both my wife and myself looked at each other, thinking the same thing: "Who on earth video tapes random kids? What is the purpose of THAT video for future reference?" I can understand video taping your own kids as they walk, but everyone else's?
Weird.

Other than that, it was a great Halloween for the record books, and I got to raid through TWO bags of candy to pick out all my favorites: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and a box of Nerds!

How To Hold Your Breath Like David Blaine?


Many of you will remember in the not-so-distant past when David Blaine held his breath on live TV for over 17 minutes, setting the new Guiness Book Record.

Well, recently at the TEDMED conference, he taught how he was able to accomplish this feat....and after only a few minutes of training, many people in the audience were able to increase their breath-holding stamina to over three minutes!

Read more about this from Tim Ferris over at his Blog:

Anything Is Possible by Jamie D. Grant


You want to see something real cool? I am totally a sucker for things like this!

Years ago, I saw one of these bottles by Vancouver magician Jamie Grant, and I couldn't stop staring at it! These are GREAT conversation pieces, and if your even the slightest bit interested in magic, you will want to pick up one of these.

Place it on your desk, on top of your entertainment center, or simply on a coffee table and watch people stare at it in wonder!

The "Anything Is Possible" bottle features a real glass milk bottle, and a perfectly SEALED deck of cards still in the cellophane, trapped inside of it under impossible conditions!

You can pick this up in either RED or BLUE bicycle cards!

Video: How Cyril Comes Up With Effects

My good friend David from Murphy's had the chance to have a one-on-one interview with Cyril when he recently came to town. They filmed a clip and I wanted to share it with you here:

Fart-Toon by Dan Harlan - Now Available!


After a long absence, Fart-Toon is back by popular demand. Quite possibly the world's most offensive card trick, Fart-Toon builds on the success of Dan Harlan's original Card-Toon and Card-Toon 2!

Instead of finding a named card by shooting out of a cannon or pulling it from his hat, the world's most famous stick-figure magician devours a supreme taco (with extra hot sauce), emits a gaseous cloud from his rear end, and reveals the chosen card among the toxic fumes!

Now that we are in the Top 10 for largest magic stores in the world, we wanted to carry more of the high-end large scale illusions.

You can check them out listed in our store right here:

Preorder Now: Titan's Finger (Twist) by Titanas

Only $34.95 - Get it by CLICKING HERE!



Presented by the legendary Paul Harris, this is one of those effects that will stick in people's heads forever! You perform this for someone on the street and they will always remember the day that you blew their mind away!

Titanas has created an exquisitely weird method for twisting your finger into a position that no finger has ever gone before!

There's NOTHING in your hands but your own skin. And yet...

You grasp one of your own fingers, muster up your courage, then give the finger a hard, forceful twist. There's an icky bone-popping "snap"...and your freakishly twisted finger is now completely backwards! You've got to watch the demo to experience the full power of this moment.

IT'S A VISUAL PIECE OF STRANGE OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.

To end the one-finger freak show, you untwist back to normal. And since there was never anything else in your hands; your audience is free to poke and prod any of your fingers as they commune with the mystery.

•EASY AND PAINLESS
•NO PALMING, NO PULLS, NOTHING TO GET RID OF.
•YOU END COMPLETELY CLEAN.
•WORKS WITH SMALL AND LARGE FINGERS OF ANY SKIN TONE.
•PRACTICAL AND ANGLE PROOF FOR ALL NORMAL...
•AND MOST ABNORMAL SITUATIONS.

Titanas' improbably twisted method for this is truly a thing of freaky beauty.

Complete with custom gimmick engineered by Mark Allen and DVD.

Purchase it here and be guaranteed to get it the day it comes out: Titan's Finger (Twist) by Titanas

Twitter and Facebook Accounts

Hidey Ho, everyone! Even though we use this blog as our MAIN platform to communicate with you, we also wanted to let you know that we have Twitter and Facebook accounts as well.

Whenever we upload a new demo, for example, it will post to those accounts so that you can see the latest demos available!

Facebook: http://facebook.com/mjmmagic

Twitter: http://twitter.com/mjmmagic

They're both basic accounts which won't have all the juicy details like this blog will, but until we build on them with more information, I thought I would share them with you all now.

I do have a personal Facebook account if anyone is interested in my meaningless updates from time to time (not MJM Magic related).

Michael Matthews - A True Magic Inspiration

I originally saw this from my boys over at iTricks. It's a very inspiring video about Michael Matthews, and it makes you focus on being thankful and grateful for what you have.

For more detail on the full story, check out Tom Isaacson's post right here. You may recognize the name, as he's the creator of our popular Prophet DVD sold in our store.

Tarantula by Yigal Mesika - PRANK!

I kid you not, I have literally watched this about FIFTEEN TIMES, over and over, non stop. For whatever reason, I find it hilarious.

NOTE: There is some profanity in this one, so please only view this if you don't mind a random "F-word" thrown around.



I think what makes it so CLASSIC is how calm Magick Balay is just before he pulls the prank. GREAT MISDIRECTION!!!!!

Buy Ghost Tag, Get Entity for only ONE BUCK!

Promotion Has Ended!

Thanks to everyone who participated and made it such a success! We will have more free giveaways during this coming holiday season so stay tuned!

Now for a LIMITED TIME only, we are presenting you a deal that you CAN'T PASS UP!

Purchase the best selling magic effect "
Ghost Tag by Peter Eggink," and we will sell you "Entity by Jeremy Hanrahan" for only a dollar. That's right, a SINGLE BUCK!

Ghost Tag is one of the most spectatular and supernatural card effects, which can be completely examined and carried with you at all times! Entity is a spooky, hands off haunted deck routine that is guaranteed to make your spectators go crazy! Click each of the links to read more about them and see a DEMO video!

After our last successful promotion (where we gave away seventeen DVD SETS for orders over $250), we had one person contact us and say, "Hey guys, what about a promotion for people who don't spend a lot of money?"

And while it was only one person who had that complaint, we listen to each and every concern that our customers have! That is why we are proud to offer this promotion for all you guys! Buy GHOST TAG and then purchase ENTITY for only ONE DOLLAR!

Go ahead, think of a reason why you wouldn't jump all over this offer.


"But I already have Ghost Tag." -- Well, you can always sell it brand new on eBay and keep the ENTITY that you purchased. Entity is a $35.00 ITEM that you are getting for ONE DOLLAR!


"Ok, I want Ghost Tag but I already have Entity." - Same as above! I couldn't pass anything up for a buck, even if I already had it. One time, someone tried to sell me a used rubber band for a dollar, and you know something? I bought it! Why? Because it was a BUCK! You always get great deals for a BUCK!

Seriously guys, we can only afford to do this for a LIMITED TIME because of limited supplies. So we've conveniently put a TICKING COUNTDOWN on the front of our website so that you will know when this offer will expire. Don't let it run out without you taking advantage of this deal.

HOW TO PURCHASE:
  1. It's simple. Add BOTH ITEMS to your shopping cart, and Entity will only cost you ONE DOLLAR.

  2. Add other items and it won't matter. As long as Ghost Tag and Entity are in your shopping cart before the timer runs out, you can purchase anything else and you will still get the deal.

  3. IMPORTANT - You will not see the discount in your shopping cart. However, once you go to the CHECKOUT area, you will see the "-$30.46" discount applied to your order!!

NOTE: You must purchase both at the same time. You cannot purchase each in two different transactions or it won't work!!!!

If you have any other questions, please let us know!

R.I.P. Patrick Swayze

Yes, this is a magic blog, but as I've stated before, it's also a personal blog which reflects myself and those who work here.

In this case, we wanted to take a moment to acknowledge Patrick Swayze, who passed away today after a long battle with cancer. For anyone who has lost a loved one to cancer, you know how debilitating and cruel it can be. I am happy to hear that he passed quietly with family by his side.

You can read more about his life and story from this Associated Press article if you like. I simply wanted to say how saddened I was to hear of his passing, but thankful that he isn't suffering anymore.
I remember watching Outsiders and Red Dawn when I was a little kid, being fascinated by those movies. Then as I got older, I really liked Road House, Donnie Darko, and especially Ghost (one of my all time favorites!). Sorry, I never got into Dirty Dancing, although Jennifer Gray was HOT! Tsssssss! However, it's one of Brandi's favorite movies of all time, like most women out there, I'm sure!
So R.I.P. Patrick, and thank you for entertaining the world for so many years. You will never be forgotten.

Spotlight: By Forces Unseen - Ernest Earick

This is something I've wanted to do for a while now: highlight a product that I personally have found fascinating, but many people have probably never realized how amazing it really is.

In this case, it's the book 'By Forces Unseen.' I remember seeing an effect from this book many years ago, and finding it hard to believe that it wasn't REAL MAGIC. "How on earth could someone do this with sleight of hand," I remember thinking!

Here is a great video performed by the talented Charles Hsu, which highlights the majority of effects and sleights taught in this book. Thanks to Charles for filming this and making it part of the magic community. You can check out his YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/almanacia

9/11: MJM Remembers

I made this movie almost EIGHT years ago, shortly after 9/11/01. It was back when I was running another humor based website (MyJokeMail.com) and I thought this video was gone forever. Fortunately, I found it archived on You Tube and I just had a chance to watch it again.

Like most Americans, that day affected me deeply, and opened my eyes to a lot of hatred and maliciousness that people have in this world (on all sides of the fence).

Back to Work, and a year older!

Well, I'm back working again after a nice, LOOOOONG labor day weekend. My wife and I went to Monterey to celebrate our SIX year wedding anniversary, and it was a very nice getaway.

Here's a funny story that happened on my trip. So my wife and I are getting these couples massages, where you're both being rubbed down at the same time by professional massage therapists. Well, this is only my third massage ever, so I am still a little nervous that I am not going to be a good patient.

So here's this girl (a pretty attractive European woman named Kate)......I'm laying face down on the table, and she's rubbing my legs pretty forcibly....and as she moves my leg, my skin rubs against the plastic table and rips this loud, farting sound.

Immediately, I begin to panick internally. "Do you think she thought that was a fart? Her face was right near my butt when she did it.....he HAD to know that I didn't just rip one on her forehead, right?" I felt myself tensing up.....to me, that would be my WORST NIGHTMARE as a massage therapist.

Just as I was beginning to put that behind me, she switches legs and the SAME THING HAPPENS AGAIN! Fortunately, she never said anything so I can only hope that she knew it was the table.

Of course, with all those fake farts flying around, I probably could have cut one for real and gotten away with it. :)

Now I am back to work at MJM Magic with a TON of weekend orders that have come in during the holiday. And on top of it all, today is my actual BIRTHDAY!

"Jeff - You mean to tell me you're working on your birthday?" Yep! There is no rest for the weary when you run a successful business! Besides, just knowing that I am taking care of our customers is one of the best gifts I can give to myself (sounds corny, but it's true). Each and every one of you who shops with us sacrifices your money and time and entrusts us with it.....so it means a lot to us to take care of you as best as we can.....even on birthdays!

Keep smiling,
- Jeff

Labor Day Holiday Hours

Hey everyone! Just a quick reminder that we're gearing up for the Labor Day holiday over here. While our website is still open for orders, nothing is going to be processed between Friday and Monday. That means you can still place your orders, but we won't physically be here to begin pulling merchandise until our normal UPS and USPS delivery schedule begins again on Tuesday the 8th.

That day (Tuesday the 8th) also happens to be my birthday, coincidentally, so I will be spending my birthday running around the store making sure all the holiday orders are packaged up and shipping on time!

This weekend also happens to be my 6 year wedding anniversary, so we plan on going to Monterrey, CA. to relax a little bit and take one last breather before the start of the busy Christmas season! :)

So again, as a reminder, nothing will be shipping out of our store this Friday thru Monday (September 4th thru September 7th) because of the Labor Day holiday. Any orders placed during that time will resume processing as normal on Tuesday.

NOTE: We may also be limited to answering emails during that time, but please feel free to contact us and we will respond as soon as we can.

Two Exciting Preorders: Levitator and iDeck

I just got a call from one of our suppliers saying that we HAVE to carry these items. The last time I heard them this excited was when the GECKO came out, and we all know how amazingly well that sold (biggest effect of 2008).

Levitator by Andrew Mayne - DVD

This one is getting a lot of buzz in the industry. Let's face it, levitations are what the average Joe-spectator expects a magician to be able to do. So why let them down? Preorder this one today! It's expected to be released around mid-September.



IDECK by Noel Qualter

This will be released in mid-October. Imagine turning your deck of cards into a portable iPod! Very commercial, and unique in presentation.

Well Wishes to Rick Maue

In case you didn't know, the talented magician Rick Maue recently suffered a stroke this past week. Rick has put out a lot of GREAT material for the magic community, and we at MJM Magic are all hoping for a speedy recovery. Rick - hang in there, my friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

Here is a posting that his wife, Tammy, wrote:

-------------------------------------------

Greetings,

This is Rick’s wife Tammy. We have received a large number of emails and phone calls about his current situation. As some of you may know, Rick suffered a stroke this past Monday. He is actually doing very well, and although it appears that we will be dealing with the Stroke Clinic here in Pittsburgh for quite some time, Rick is hoping to resume a VERY limited schedule between now and the end of the year. We are even trying to convince his doctors to allow him to venture to Magic in the Rockies in a couple of weeks.

The reason for this message is that we want to thank everyone for their concern and good wishes. Rick is really sorry that he cannot respond to each of you individually, but the majority of his time is obviously being taken up by just taking it easy.

Anyone that may want to send any get well wishes can reach Rick through the contact information on our website by Clicking Here!

(Email and regular mail may be the best options since he is not able to take too many phone calls just yet.)

Once again, thank you to everyone for their concern and their support.

Sincerely,
Tammy Maue
Deceptions Unlimited

Dan Sperry is OK! Services will be held for his car.

I hope Dan doesn't mind me mentioning this, but he's a friend of mine and I am so thankful that he's alright.

So here's the backstory. I was texting him back and forth a few days ago about the Crimson Decks and some upcoming projects we are going to work on. His responses were a little short, and he told me it was because he was just in a car accident.

"Car accident?" I asked if he was OK, and he said he was fine. Now, because the accident just happened and we were texting, I thought it was probably a bad fender bender or something. Then I saw the picture he took on his cell phone, and my testicles shrank into my stomach.
All I have to say is thank God he was OK. It was only a few months ago that he was driving me around town in that same vehicle, and all it takes is one bonehead not paying attention to t-bone you to turn your life upside down.....literally.
An accident like that is something you are lucky to walk away from with no serious injuries, and we're all thankful that Dan was able walk away unharmed. If you want to check out his Facebook page and leave him a comment, click this link.

Cyril Takes Matrix To The Next Level

Do You Perform With Grapes? THEN STOP!

This is probably more of a public service announcement than anything else. If there is one thing that has KILLED many careers, it's a bad stigma associated to them. Here's what I mean. When I say, Charles Manson, what comes to your mind? Probably the image of a deranged serial killer who orchestrated the murders of many innocent people. But what about the successful neighborhood magician who shared his name? Now no one wants to pay a penny to see his show, and he's forced to pick some fictitious stage name.

So what I am bringing that up for? Simple. In one word, it's GRAPES.

"Grapes?"

Yes, grapes. I know that many magicians out there are highly creative, but please be warned. If any of you are using grapes in your act, you should know that they've been getting some bad publicity lately (at least here in North America).

"Grapes? Jeff, what are you talking about?"

Oh, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. If you substitute some grapes into your Cups and Balls routine during one of the loads, then I'm talking to you. If you do a mini Zombie Ball routine using a grape, then PAY ATTENTION! You might think it's all fun and games, but you just might be associated with the GRAPIST. Watch this clip and see what I mean:



Just looking out for our customers and keeping them informed. Don't say we didn't warn you!

Product Notifications

This is just a reminder to those who may not know about this cool feature on our website. Many times, you may see an item that is out of stock and you want to know when it will come back in.

All you need to do is log into your MJM Magic account, go to the product you're interested in, and sign up for a product notification!

It will be located on the right hand side of the product's page and it looks like this:

That will record this notification to your account, so the next time anything changes about it (like a price change or an availability change), you will be automatically emailed and notified!

My Daughter Broke Her Arm

This blog is not only a window into the MJM Magic scene, but it's also a doorway into my personal life (because let's face it, MJM is just as much a part of me as my own family!)

So yesterday, the unthinkable happens. My wife calls me up and says that my youngest daughter (Katelyn, almost 2 yrs old) fell off a chair and broke her arm. I rushed home just in time for them to come back from Urgent Care, where we had to anxiously await a phone call from the doctor regarding her x-ray results. As you can see from the picture, even when she passed out, she was still holding her arm in pain.

The call eventually came and the news was bad: she fractured her arm. She is to remain in a cast for two weeks, which means she requires a lot more constant care than normal. Little things like eating with utensils and getting up on the couch are now almost impossible for her. Things that normally weren't a big deal (like seeing her trip over a toy) suddenly become astronomically worse, because even a small fall would send her landing on that arm again.

To be honest, the most heartbreaking thing is when she looks up at me and says, "Daddy, take it off my hand....take it off." I have to tell her that I can't take it off, baby......we have to wait until it's better. :(

But it could have been a LOT worse, so for that, I am thankful. As you can see, she now gets anything she wants during this recovery time. Goldfish? Fruit Snacks? You got it, Katelyn! Just relax and try not to hurt yourself anymore, for Pete's sake.

KARMA: Masked Magician Fails Miserably!

When you make your living by exposing the hard work of other honest magicians, one gets a little bit of satisfaction watching this guy FAIL MISERABLY on a live television show. My satifaction in watching this is only matched by the uncomfortableness that you can feel when everything goes horribly wrong!



This video comes direct from our popular magic YouTube Channel. Check it out here and subscribe to it (we update it all the time with new videos)!

MJM Going Solar?


Hey guys - sorry for not posting more often. In addition to running the store and speedily processing all your orders, I am researching a new project. It's more of a side thing, really....but I have been on this "solar" kick mentality for the last few weeks and I have no idea why. One of the things I thought would be killer is to convert the MJM Magic office to run entirely on solar power!

Pretty far fetched, and believe me, I got Brandi over here rolling her eyes thinking that I've completely lost it....but how neat would that be? To run all our computers and printers on nothing but solar energy? We wouldn't be doing it so much to save money (since solar systems are far more expensive than just paying the utility for power), but more so to say "We did it!" and to run the business on "clean renewable energy."

I will keep any solar project updates in this blog, since it's bound to be a HUGE undertaking if I ever get around to it.

Little Update from Jeff

Hidey-ho, everyone! Just wanted to drop this little update to THANK each and every one of you for continuing to be a part of our MJM family! Last month (July) proved to be the biggest July we've ever had in the last couple of years!

A large part of that had to do with the promotions we continue to have where we give away lots of free stuff, but I honestly feel that the MAIN reason why we continue to grow is because of YOU. Word of mouth and positive testimonials are what we live for, and that's the real fuel behind our success. Unlike other companies, we don't dump a lot of money into advertising or flashy ads. Why? Simply because that would focus on US US US. We would rather focus on YOU YOU YOU. That is what makes people continue to come back to us.

It sounds corny, but it's true. We literally try to put our customers above everything else, including our own employees sometimes! That means working after hours to answer emails, coming in on days off to pre-package orders over the weekend, you name it, we've done it. Heck, when my second daughter (Katelyn) was born in 2007, I drove back and forth every day from the hospital (60 miles away in Mountain View, CA) to process MJM orders for customers......and when I was finished, I would turn around and head back to the hospital to be with my family. I did that everyday for the 5 days/nights that my wife was in the hospital.

Being as large as we are, I personally have spoken to a lot of other magic store owners in the industry, and I've always believed that "there are plenty of people out there for everyone." I want other stores to succeed just like I want MJM to succeed. I want others to do well because I know that the same will come back to me. I'm a big believer in Karma, which is another reason why I don't run the company with dirty tactics or try to undermine anyone else in the industry.

So again, thank you for continuing to support our store and be a part of the success. We plan on giving away a lot more items before years end, AND bringing you more exclusives like Ghost Tag and Crimson Deck which you can only get in our store!

Our door is always open....feel free to contact us if you have any questions! I have lots of big ideas coming for MJM Magic that involve each and every one of you, and I can't wait to share them with you.

Keep smiling,
- Jeff

Yikes - Look Who's Coming to Breakfast!


How would you like to wake up and find a TIGER in your backyard? Well for one Las Vegas resident, that's exactly what happened when a tiger escaped from a magic act!

LAS VEGAS — Police in Las Vegas say a tamed tiger that escaped from a magic act has been captured.

Police say the residents in the city's northwest section reported seeing the tiger wandering their streets Thursday night.

Police Lt. Les Lane says the cat belongs to Fernando's Brothers magic act. He says the cat got loose, but "they got it back into custody."

The cat was found in a resident's backyard.

Animal Control and Metro Police are investigating the incident.
