Magic, How Does it Work?!

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always watched magicians on television with my family and tried to figure out how they did the things they did. I always knew that it was an illusion and there was a reasonable explanation for all of it, but I just ignored it and chalked it up to magic. It's funner that way.

One of the magicians I grew up watching was David Blaine. The stunts that I liked the best weren't all technically 'magic', rather endurance stunts. But, I don't care, I still thought they were awesome. Being in a block of ice for more than 2 days, buried alive for like a week, being underwater for a week and holding his breath for nearly 8 minutes while he was at it. Incredible.

Then came Criss Angel. David Blaine did a little bit of levitating on his show, but nothing came close to what Criss Angel did. You know, the one where he did the levitation above the pyramid in Las Vegas. You know...

But, I have found a video of a magician in the UK that has just blown my mind. This guy's name is Dynamo. He's like the new Blaine or Angel (but much cuter, which is always a plus). He has a show called Dynamo Magician Impossible that just started airing it's third season on July 11 (Watch Channel). Here's a little sneak peak: In this video he levitates beside a bus through the streets. I don't understand it, I don't want to understand it, I just know that it's awesome. See for yourself:

Seriously, you can't explain that. I SO wish that I could watch his show in the US. Maybe I'll just have to move to Europe. Yeah, that sounds like a plan! :)

Grown-Up Things and Not-So-Grown-Up Things

Grown Up Things: For my job I get to travel around. Sometimes I get to go to other countries. For some reason, that country is mostly Canada. I'm scared to death of roaming fees, so how do I communicate with my Hubs? Skype. When I'm on a conference call with clients and I need to talk to people from my office without letting the client know, what do I use? Skype. Skype has saved my butt, and my bank account, a lot. 
Skype can also be a lot of fun (if you know what I mean... ha)! 

Not-So-Grown-Up Things: If you know me, you know that some of my music choices can be confused with that of a 13 year old girl. I can't help it. I have no idea why I like the music that I do - but I do. One of those groups that I love - One Direction. I mean, what girl doesn't like listening to songs telling them that they're beautiful? I, for one, love it.

And so do these girls. 
 Now, what do these 2 things have to do with each other? Well, Jimmy Kimmel does a segment on his show where he Skypes people at their houses and gets them to do weird stuff. It's pretty funny, and guess who his last Skype call  was - One Direction! Things included in this video: A golden horse, English accents, toothpaste mustaches, and Harry with no pants. Yeah, you read that right. Just watch the vid. :)

PS - I'll be waiting for my Skype call with 1D.
