Throwback Thursday



It's been over a month.  I'll be real for a second.  Between a recent death, and a MAJOR flu (in the summer none the less...get your flu shot) I've been binging on old Homestar Runner cartoons.  I'll be in the field this weekend filming more tips, and tricks.  One video was scheduled to be filmed at the mall, but the store manager wouldn't provided clearance so that's on the back burner.  So to hold you's a throwback to a Halloween show (timely AND topical)


See ya next week.




Ice Ice Baby

The title of this blog is a throwback to Mr. Van Winkle . ..

During a recent file transfer, I uncovered some archives of magic tricks using household items.  Here's one from  " the kitchen".



Go grab a coffee cup, kitchen sponge, cup of water, and ice cube...And now...let's get into it.




Next week I'll have a tip SO important, and SO new, you won't be able WAIT to share with your friends (and have them thank you for doing so).

Book Release


What's been going on behind the scenes in my world is working on a great partnership with the San Jose library. Perhaps you've been to one of the shows

Wait...that was a really shitty intro.  Sorry about that.  Let me try again. ya doing?  It's been a bit...Trying to find my groove with the blog.  I'm also really excited about teaming up with the San Jose Library. After a show, during my usual chit chat, a librarian and I started talking about hobbies.  I not so subtly mentioned I had written a book, and she asked if I would like to have it available at all of the public libraries in San Jose. Umm...YEAH. We are almost there.

I'm happy to announce my last library show of the season, and book release party at the library. To celebrate the book being carried in every library, every family in attendance will receive a copy.

Thank you for all of your support.

See you on the 12th.


P.S. New Vlog drops Monday.

Happy St. Patricks Day

An Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you

May the wind always be at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

And rains fall soft upon your fields

And Until we meet again

May God hold you in the palm of his hand.


Oh, and also this...


Even Harry Potter Had to Start Somewhere

Hey there, welcome to Pete's Picks.  Every week there will be a video blog (a Vlog if you will) of tricks to learn, tips to share, and even extras you need to know for all things birthday magic. The trick taught below used to be in the "closeup magic" section of my show.  As with anything, put in the time to make sure your friends are standing n JUST the right spot...otherwise the wrong angle may reveal how this trick is done.  Let's see how it looks to your friends...



You'll need a penny and two quarters.  Got them?  Ok, let's get into it...
