Wheaton magician lights up Flight 112 in Elmhurst‎ - Suburban Life Publications
Many people can go their entire lives without hearing their calling, let alone realizing it in preschool, as Jeanette Andrews did. At 4, she remembers seeing a Siegfried and Roy magic show on TV. “And was like, ‘That’s what I’m going to do for the rest of my life,’” the now 22-year-old magician said. “After that I got a magic set for Christmas. My parents knew that’s what I really wanted to do. I practiced and practiced from the set and did my first magic show for my preschool class, and this is what I’ve done ever since.”

Saturday interview: Dynamo, the magician who walks on water - The Guardian
Dynamo grew up moving around some of Bradford's most deprived housing estates. He has three half-siblings, but they are much younger, so he spent a good deal of his childhood as an only child. Or a "lonely child" as he puts it. His mum was just 16 when she became pregnant, and his father was around until he was "about three or four", but then he was in and out of prison and not a part of Dynamo's life...

Magician Dynamo Correctly Predicts Spain’s Euro 2012 Route, Wins £10,000 Bet, Donates It All To Charity - Who ate all the Pies
Appearing on This Morning a fortnight ago, Dynamo placed a £1 accumulator on the outcome of the knockout stages – even going as far as including which teams would advance via penalties, sealed the slip in an envelope and left it with the ITV production crew – returning two weeks later for the big unveil. Turns out the tricksy bugger somehow got everything spot on – even Spain’s winning margin in the final itself...

Here is what I predict will be a classic for magicians, entertainers, and fans of magic. Andrews and his friend, fellow magician (who is also an anthopologist and mind-reader) Paul Draper, did this video of stuff hack magicians say.

Magic Book: A Blind Magician's Secrets Revealed - Huffington Post
With his black Stetson hat, lizard-skin boots, and wide Doc Holliday moustache the texture of dried tumbleweed, world-class card manipulator Richard Turner looks like a saloonkeeper from the Badlands, a Victorian-era cowboy, or a ghost town tour guide. When I first saw this apparition at a closed-door lecture of the Society of American Magicians in a sterile auditorium at the back of the Mount Sinai Medical Center on Madison Avenue, I checked his hip for the scabbard and six-shooter, seemingly the only things missing from his getup...

Magic racket: Author Alex Stone reveals tricks of the trade in Fooling Houdini -
Stone took an oath when he joined the Society of American Magicians, a code of secrecy essentially shattered by writing Fooling Houdini, not to mention an article about the Magic Olympics in the July 2008 issue of Harper’s. “I do break that oath,” he says, “but for one, I think that magicians take themselves a little too seriously with the secret thing. The idea that they’re in this secret society or secret cult invites a bit of mockery, and it almost challenges the person to break through the veil.”
