Penn and Teller: 'We compare death threats with Richard Dawkins'-Telegraph
What kind of trickery is this? First of all, Teller struggles to unscrew the cap on the bottle of fizzy water plonked on the hotel boardroom table. Having a couple of decades on the diminutive 66-year-old magician, I give it a go. Failing miserably, I hand it to his hulking partner, Penn Jillette, 59, who is twice the man of each of us. Or, he’s the two of us combined. He can’t open it either....

Miss X And Her Magician-Beliefnet
You can’t always trust the Magician. Sometimes this card will show up when you have the consummate skills to accomplish the task at hand, be it the first day on a new job or a walk around the block after a convalescence. It can be that mundane. It can be that meaningful. But I’ve also drawn this card for a manipulator, opportunist, smoother operator.

Real Deal: More Thoughts On The Magician Card-Beliefnet
And in every one of these decks, the Magician has a table. Is it his table? We assume so. And yes, in all my cards, the Magician is depicted as male. Once during an on-line search I discovered a Magician card that I thought was female but no — he actually just had long blonde hair.

Penn and Teller may not believe in God but they do believe in magic-Calgary Herald
Las Vegas stalwarts, Penn and Teller, about to celebrate their 40th anniversary, are still packing ’em in at The Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. The most famous magic act in the world, they’re magicians for people who don’t like magicians. Not so much for their tricks, staggering and inventive though they are. These conjurors toy brilliantly with the tropes of magic and use them to debunk mysteries, lampoon ho-hum sleights of hand and make whip-smart intellectual, political and philosophical points...

Brookline magician follows his dream, with a handkerchief up his-Wicked Local Brookline
Magician Eric Benton wants you to know exactly what his show isn’t.
It’s written plainly on his website. What you won’t get is “sparkly boxes,” routines that make audience members the butt of jokes, and finally, no playing of the song “Final Countdown” by the band Europe.
The Brookline resident likes his magic to stand on its own....

Meet the conjurers of Michael Jackson's ghost-USA TODAY
So what is it? "An illusion," Patterson says. Indeed, Pulse refined a 19th-century magician's technique called Pepper's ghost, which Textor -- then leading Oscar-winning graphics company Digital Domain -- also employed to summon the ghost of slain rapper Tupac Shakur at the Coachella music festival in 2012. The effect involves projecting an image on glass or plastic at a 45-degree angle, which brings that image into the viewer's field of view...
