Recent stuff ・ 最近の出来事

Recently I am very busy with work, and somewhat busy with rehearsals for our Christmas show (December 17). Apart from the rehearsals, not so much is happening on the magic side so the blog is kind of at a standstill. I bought a new Tenyo "The Third Eye" as a backup for when the one that people keep dropping all the time stops working.


At the rehearsals last week, I managed to fail spectacularly both times. The first time I managed to pretend to put something in my right hand (that would later disappear) but forgot to close the right hand so it was pretty obvious that there was nothing there... At the next rehearsal, which took place at a real stage with curtains, lights, and everything, I managed to not notice that my bag with all the things I was going to use during the trick had disappeared into the table somewhere while the table was being carried out onto the stage, so things did not start out great. Reaching down with the left hand to retrieve something when no one was looking, I suddenly realized that there was nothing there to retrieve... I also managed to forget the order of things that I was supposed to do, and forgot to grab my final load at the appropriate time. All in all, two funny disasters.


In our magic bar, one guy proposed to his girlfriend with support by magic during the weekend. That was a first, I think. It went well.


最近忙しい。仕事でも、クリスマスの大きなステージマジックショー(12月17日)のリハーサルでも。リハーサル以外、最近マジックに関して特に何もないので、ブログが進まない。テンヨーのザ・サードアイをもう1個買った。お客さんに落とされるやつが壊れたら、すぐまたマジック出来るため。

先週のリハーサルで、2回リハーサルに行って、1回とも大失敗した、笑。最初の時に手にものを入れたふり(後で入れたものが消える)をしてから、手閉じていないことに気付いてちょっと恥ずかしかった。何も入っていないことが勿論バレバレだった。次の時にちゃんとしたステージでリハーサルがあった。音響・幕・何でも本番と同じ感じだった。僕が使うテーブルがステージに運ばれていた時にテーブルに付けてあった箱、パフォーマンス中に使う道具が入っている箱、テーブルの中のどこかに消えていたことに気付かなかった。演技中に、誰も見ていない時に箱から道具を取り出そうとしたら、あれ?ない!その後も手順を忘れて、最後のスチール忘れた、笑。うける…

週末にマジックバーで男の人が彼女にマジックでプロポーズした。マジックバーで初めてだったと思う。うまく行った。

  1. More rehearsals today. Surprisingly, today everything went more or less fine :-)

    今日もリハーサルがあった。今日珍しくて僕の演技が割と大丈夫だった、笑。
