Only a silly American tourist would pose for a pic like this. In the middle of the Bangkok protests, with people getting wounded and killed, this lady (I use the term loosely) poses with the awaiting Thai Army troops.
The older I get the more I amazed by the actions of people. Well, whatever…
Not often we show you the ‘backstage’ part of our illusion company – But my Production Director Andy was a bit bored and arranged one of our truckload of cases for a pic, after last week’s event in Bangkok.
Good job Andy – I Iiked it!
We are now a proud member of the Singapore-Thai Chamber of Commerce. Previously our company was just active in the American Chamber and attended occasional joint functions with the Singapore group. But with more and more of our event work taking place in Singapore and Singapore companies with events in Thailand, this is just a natural progression.
We are proud to be accepted as a member and looking forward to joining the family at the Singapore-Thai Chamber group.
This week is the “Songkran” Water Festival holiday all over Thailand. It is essentially the New Year celebration for Thai people and everyone is off from work all week. Part of the fun country-wide is people splash water all over each other for good luck.
I am in none of the pics below, as I am staying inside nice and dry! But seriously, nice to have some downtime while everyone else is going mad running around.
I know I am real late with this news (finding out after the fact) and it has been reported many places elsewhere in the magic community – But I did want to make mention of it and a few words with my own insight.
Jerry Conklin was one of the real “old timers” and one half of the “Amazing Conklins.” He lived and was based out of Colon, Michigan ever since I can remember. I saw many of his illusion shows at the annual Abbott Get-Together’s and always learned much from him. Ironically, he was born in the same year as my mom, 1928.
I know in recent months he had been active on his Facebook page and is where I re-connected with him. RIP – Both you as a person and your performances will be greatly missed Jerry. But will live on in all of our memories forever…
Nice to stop by and see my Thai friend Tuxedo a few days ago in his new custom-built theatre in North Pattaya, Thailand (his previous location was on 2nd road in a much smaller place).
Show has much new material in it, as well. Good luck Tuxedo! His web site can be seen here www.tuxedo-magic.com.
