I originally posted this video on November 22, 2004, as part of my early testing of my RSS 2.0 feed with a video enclosure.
Here's the description:
My father was a magician.Recently, one of the little kids from one of the parties contacted the family to say that they had a video from the party of my dad doing a magic trick.
I found a bag of his tricks today and that brought back memories of the shows he performed. He started out doing a magic show for one of my birthday parties, then he did shows for friends, and ended up doing shows at local hospitals. Some of the tricks I found are pretty old.
I also found some index cards that listed which trick would go into which of his pockets.
He was organized, as am I.
We never had a video camera when I was little, so this is the only video I have of my dad, and he's doing a magic trick.
This is so cool. Since it's a silent movie, I couldn't resist adding some sound. Video purists can mute the audio,. ;-)
Here are some photos of the things I found:
