LABOR DAY SPECIAL: Andrew Mayne promotion!!


Recently, the great Andrew Mayne stopped by and filmed some nice videos for us. If you don't know who Andrew Mayne is, he's one of those creators that continue to put out best selling effects in the magic industry. Not to mention, he's an all around nice guy, and we like supporting nice people in any way that we can! A lot of his stuff ranges from the freaky bizarre stuff (like his bestselling Ghost Vision and In Half Illusion) to more every day miracles like 'Tear Down' and 'Infusion.'

Here is a quick .29 second video of Andrew talking about his effects right here at MJM Magic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pn1nLzFqYIk

So in honor of Andrew, to show our appreciation for his support, we wanted to turn it into an opportunity where we could also reward our customers with some KILLER DEALS!

Introducing the Andrew Mayne Labor Day Special!

Between now and Labor Day (September 6th), we are offering a special Andrew Mayne deal! In order to offer some diversity, we have split this into two different package deals that you can choose from:

1. Purchase Tear Down by Andrew Mayne, and we will throw in Infusion by Andrew Mayne for only $4.99 more! That's almost a 70% discount! Link: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/special-tear-down-by-andrew-mayne-plus-infusion-by-andrew-mayne-p-11741.html

2. Purchase Tear Down by Andrew Mayne, and we will throw in Election by Eric Ross for only $4.99 more! Again, that's almost 70% in savings! Link: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/special-tear-down-by-andrew-mayne-plus-election-by-eric-ross-p-11742.html

What is Tear Down? It's an awesome totally IMPROMPTU classic in magic! You want this. Trust us. Once you learn it you’ll be a newspaper tearing fiend. You can do it anytime, anywhere with any newspaper. No duplicates, no gimmicks, no tape, blah, blah blah.

You tear up a signed newspaper. Restore it. Then hand it back to the audience. Everything can be inspected.

What is Infusion? It's a miracle with money, that's what it is! Imagine taking a BORROWED dollar bill from a spectator, making a tear in it, and then stabbing your finger through the tear? If that doesn't cause your spectator to panic, you then rip your finger through the bill in a tearing motion! Just when they're about to really freak out at the fact that you destroyed their bill, you instantly restore it and give it back to them! Oh yeah, did we mention that it's completely impromptu without any advance set up? We like that!

What is Election by Eric Ross? Election is a hands off miracle. It's a You Do As I Do stunner that can be done with normal decks of cards. PLUS, you get three amazing BONUS effects taught on this DVD: Twisted (disappearing finger routine), Sucker (bite & restored sucker), and Distorted (impromptu card through bill illusion)!

And don't forget, even though those package deals expire in a few days, we always have special deals on some of Andrews other BEST SELLING EFFECTS, like these:

GHOST VISION by Andrew Mayne (only $13.05 with returning customer discount!!) - Not only does this REALLY FREAK PEOPLE OUT, but it's been used on national TV and psychic shows to try and prove the paranormal! Here is a .38 second video of Andrew talking about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krBK211oZhs

You can see Ghost Vision in action and pick one up right here: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/ghost-vision-by-andrew-mayne-p-3408.html

IN HALF by Andrew Mayne - This is a KILLER stage illusion which is affordable and hits just as hard as anything else you'd see in a professional show! It's the classic "Saw in Half" illusion where you saw yourself in half! No need for assistants or thousand dollar props! Here is a quick .47 second video of Andrew talking about it in our store: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jaAL5K9aBU

You can see a demo video of IN HALF and pick one up right here: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/in-half-by-andrew-mayne-dvd-p-10408.html



In closing, I'd like to share a recent video that I made called "Challenge Yourself", which shares with you a real story (and actual video footage) of me laying on a bed of nails! Check it out here: http://mjmmagic.blogspot.com/2010/08/video-challenge-yourself-funny.html

VLOG: How to Order Streaming Videos

Jeff talks about the new Streaming Videos at MJM Magic, answered some frequently asked questions, and shows you how quick and easy it is to order and access them!

Streaming Videos a Success!

It has only been 24 hours but so far, our newest streaming video feature is a SUCCESS!

Now you can order streaming videos which don't require you to pay for postage, nor do you have to wait for the postman to deliver it in the mail. As soon as we process your order, you literally have access to it that fast!

I'd like to clear up some questions though which we've been getting.

1. Can these videos be dowloaded and saved to my local computer, or burned on a disk?

No. These are not downloads, they are streaming videos. That means they stream to you over a live internet connection, just like Netflix will do with their on demand movies.

2. Will these ever expire?

No, they will never expire. As long as you purchase the item, you are able to watch it on demand, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

3. But what if I want to have a copy of it? What if I want to have a disk of this item?

If you want a hard copy of it, then we recommend purchasing the actual DVD that the streaming video came from. For example, if you want to own the Reel Magic 13 Episode but want it on a disk, then you're better off buying the actual DVD and we will ship it to you. If, however, you mostly watch things online with your computer, then you will find our Streaming Videos the best way to go.

Again, think of this service we're offering like Netflix, which will stream videos to your computer that you rent. Although instead of renting, you are purchasing our Streaming Videos without having them expire.

You simply go to the MJM Magic video page (right here) and you will always have access to view your purchases on demand!

New Feature: Streaming Videos at MJM Magic

Today MJM Magic is launching something that we're really excited about: Streaming Videos!


In the past, we have offered some downloadable products, but this is the first time that we're opening the doors to full length, streaming media right to your computer! Nothing to download, no shipping fees, available to watch 24/7 right on your computer!

Click here to watch the founder of MJM Magic talk about it!

For this initial launch, we have roughly 100 titles to choose from! Everything from one-item effects for $5.00 all the way to 2+ hour DVD's and box sets.

We have some great titles too, like the Daniel Garcia Project DVD's, the Reel Magic Quarterly episodes, Juan Tamazriz DVD's, and more!

For those who don't know what Streaming Videos are, they allow you to watch your purchase streamed live directly to your computer. That means you don't have to pay anything for shipping, nor do you have to wait days or weeks for the mail to be delivered to you. As soon as we process your order in the queue, you will have access to your purchase!

While we don't recommend anyone purchasing a streaming product with a slow internet connection (or else it will lag and look choppy), we know that the majority of people have a fast DSL or Cable connection these days.

Take a look at all of our Streaming Videos right here: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/streaming-videos-c-47.html

More are being added all the time. You will know if an item is a streaming item because we will specifically put "STREAMING VIDEO" in the title of the product.

Of course, since this is a HUGE new feature that we're launching today, we are still making improvements to the overall process. Some of the items don't have full descriptions or demo videos yet, but we're working on that currently and updating the website all throughout the day. So please be patient and as always, if you have any other questions, please let us know!

Wow - Magician Jim Pace incarcerated for 13+ years?!

Thanks to the guys at iTricks for publishing this one. Even though I'm the owner of MJM Magic, I admit that I'm usually too busy running the day-to-day operations to try and keep track of ALL the news in the industry.

So I was pretty shocked to hear that magician Jim Pace appears to be locked up in prison for 13+ years.

Now I obviously cannot confirm or deny any of the charges, and I can only go off what I see listed at the Oregon Department of Corrections. However, it's a shame to read about this. Jim has contributed a lot to the magic community with some best selling effects like Hot Leads and The Web. While I certainly don't condone any illegal activity, I'm still in shock that Jim was (it appears) found guilty and charged with these crimes.

Anyway, I thought I would pass this story onto the readers of the MJM Blog.

Video: Dan Sperry on America's Got Talent!

Did you guys happen to check out our good friend, Dan Sperry, on the popular "America's Got Talent" show this week?

I think his performance was KILLER for many reasons. One, the effect that he performed stands out from all the other magic that's been seen on the show. Two, the way it ended was a highlight for the network television show which will be talked about for a long time! (For those who don't know, Howie Mandel is a germaphobe, so his reaction at the end is CLASSIC!) And three, because he's my good buddy and I'm biased.

So congrats on the showing, D! No matter what happens in the competition, you're going to keep on rising to the top!

COMING SOON - Daniel Garcia Project #4, 5, 6

Can I just say how SUPER EXCITED I am that these are finally coming? Danny Garcia is one of the coolest dudes in the industry, and his magic is very hard hitting. Anyone who has purchased the classic first three volumes of his Danial Garcia Project know what I'm talking about.

And now, after YEARS of waiting, he has released three NEW volumes:


Purchase each volume individually, or if you get all three together (through this link), then we will throw in a free Mandolin Deck!

VLOG: Mandolin Deck Giveaway

See this blog post for further details: http://mjmmagic.blogspot.com/2010/08/man-oh-mandolin-get-your-free-deck.html

Man Oh MANDOLIN! Get Your Free Deck! Expires 8/7/10


The new MANDOLIN deck is going to be the STANDARD deck in the magic industry. It looks almost identical to a regular Bicycle Deck, with one main exception: the bicycle back design is no longer going to be made in gaff cards. So all your double backs, or blank face cards are eventually transitioning over to Mandolin cards.

Many trusted names in the industry worked on this deck, like Paul Harris, Garrett Thomas, and Richard Turner, to ensure a smooth transition from the standard 808 Bicycle Rider Deck to the new Mandolin Deck. In the near future, we will be updating many of our popular card effects to come with Mandolin cards. The two decks look so similar that it would be very tough for the average non-magician to notice a difference at all. However, for those of us who like everything to be perfect and uniform, these decks are going to be a staple in the industry, because all future gaffs are going to come with the Mandolin design.

So now that the industry is transitioning over to this new design, we want YOU to get your hands on the deck, so we're giving them away for FREE with a couple different promotions:


1. Spend $50.00 and get one automatically one added to your order!

2. Purchase Highflyer by Peter Eggink (only $30.00) and we will throw one in your order just for asking for it! You have to ask when placing your order to qualify!

That's it! Two wonderful opportunities to get your first Mandolin deck with your orders!


•This offer is for online purchases only. Simply mention "FREE MANDOLIN DECK" in your Order Comments when placing your order, and we will add the deck to your invoice! Orders must be over $50.00 or include Highflyer by Peter Eggink in the order.

•This promotion ends on Saturday, August 7th!!!! This doesn't apply to any orders placed prior to 8/4/10 10:30am PST. Sorry, no exceptions. Thank you for understanding.

•The promotion only applies to SINGLE orders. You cannot combine two separate orders to quality for the freebie.

•The money spent towards the free deck cannot include shipping, tax, or discounts. An order of $45.00 with a $5.00 shipping charge doesn't qualify for the $50 FREEBIE because you are only spending $45.00 in merchandise. Likewise, an order of $50.00 prior to using a 10% discount coupon will not apply because you are not spending the full $50.00 in our store.

As usual, if you have ANY other questions about this, please contact us by using THIS FORM.

AND BY THE WAY.....looking for some killer deals to boost your order? Check out our DVD LIQUIDATION sale still going on right here: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/clearance-c-46.html
