Perfect Oxymoron

Filed under: Uncategorized — Porcupyn @ 8:50 pm

While watching a magic show on TV*, son asks “Is this magic show real?”

* – if memory serves me right, back home – thanks to the Sircars – we were used to watching magic at a higher level than kids here are used to; all they are exposed to (here) at this age is some sleight of hand card tricks or some such, not the sawing-body-in-half kind that was on TV today.



  1. Oxymoron is right. 🙂

    I did not have the privilege of watching P.C.Sorcar (sp?) in India, but was fortunate enough to have seen David Copperfield from 3 rows away, in Las Vegas.

    I am not sure about the kinds of things you include in “sleight of hand” but some of those guys do tricks that is very good; for example, Lance Burton.

    If you are looking to broaden your son’s “magical” horizons (sorry), I would suggest YouTube:
    Lance Burton

    David Copperfield

  3. D.S./BPSK:

    Actually, I don’t remember having watched Sorcar live either (or even on TV). But I have definitely watched more magic in India than I have here. Having said that, I have not gone out of my way to find a good magic show here either. The only ones were during kids’ parties – and that is what I wanted to say in my piece.


    Thanks for the links – I will check them out.
