Mike Thornton takes home the coveted First Place Trophy for the 2nd Annual Ann Arbor Magic Club Close Up Showcase.


President's Corner

By Dan Jones


Hello Fellow Magi of the Ann Arbor Magic Club and Friends,

I would first like to say congratulations and thank you to all of our performers in last month's Close Up Showcase competition. It was a great turnout of members and guests to support the performers of all skill levels and experience. They should all be proud of themselves. And a congratulations to Mike Thorton who won the event as voted by the audience.

On a personal note now I would like to ask our club members to hold me accountable when it comes to being a magician. I always have a few magic effects with me when I'm out and can perform them at anytime. But at a magic meeting I arrive with a bag of tricks but rarely perform them. At a recent meeting when I asked a member what they were working on they reciprocated the question and asked me the same thing. It made me think and I recounted an effect in progress. Now I'm motivated to complete the work and present it at a meeting. That is what I need to do.

How about you? At a magic meeting of a magic club we need to see more magic, talk more magic, share more magic and teach more magic.

See you all soon.
Dan Jones, President of Ann Arbor Magic Club.


Secretary's Report

By Karl Rabe


We had a fantastic turnout for our meeting with a number of guests and old friends. The feature of the evening was our 2nd Annual Ann Arbor Magic Club Close-up Showcase. Six members competed against each for the coveted 1st Place Close-up Showcase Trophy. The format involved each of the six performers stationed at their own table with 30 plus audience members split up into groups of five or six rotating every five minutes to the next table. After the magicians had performed six times all audience members had seen each magician and they voted on their favorite.

  • April Barrett performed several predictions including a comedy 3-1/2 of Clubs reveal.
  • Phil Mann stood at a small table busker style. He opened with a four rose production and then went into a coin through miniature table routine and a coin matrix.
  • Charlie Palko is our youngest member. Charlie kicked off with some nice sleight-of-hand, transforming a chewed piece of gum into an un-chewed stick. Then suddenly the gum was wrapped! Charlie also performed a nice card to deck which visually transformed into a sealed envelope which contained the correct prediction.
  • Alex Heath has been a member for only a few months, but has impressed us all with his classic sleight of hand. Tonight was no different as Alex performed a very nice cups-and-balls routine.
  • Kevin Peshick did a spooky routine with an old watch and a tarot deck. A couple of cut-to cards chosen under a "cloak of darkness" correspond to the hands on the watch the spectator has been holding the entire time.
  • Michael Thornton may have only joined our club last month, but he is a seasoned pro familiar to most of us. He opened with a comedy candle to bouquet and then went into a borrowed finger ring on rope routine that culminated in the ring vanishing and later being found inside a sealed envelope in his wallet.

After all the votes were in, the winner was revealed to be Michael Thornton. President Dan Jones and Sergeant at Arms Mike Bogdas presented Michael with the trophy. Then as is tradition, Mike repeated his routine for the other 5 performers so they could enjoy it too.

After a few bits of business from our President Dan Jones, it was on to member performances.

  • Our Secretary Karl Rabe performed an Any Card at Any Number (ACAN) routine (VOX) with one human and Siri as assistants. The human correctly sensed Siri's vibes.
  • Jeff Jackowski, a returning member, performed his classic ring and rope entertaining the crowd with the story of his father when Jeff was just a wee lad.
  • Then another guest Fred Lenter fro Ring 22 performed a baffling ACAN adding in the element of two decks - one of which was borrowed.
  • Don Oesterwind, Jr. demoed his latest acquisition from Michigan Magic Day, a metal wand/pen that changed its physical texture on demand.
  • Phil Mann performed a classic Sponge Rabbits routine with Bill Rabe assisting.
  • Finally, Dreygon Hibbler another guest from Ring 22 member and fresh from performing at The Magic Castle, performed a "Transmorgograpy" sandwich card transposition where the selected card by Mike Palko magically disappears from Mike's hands and re-appeared between two previously selected card in April Barrett's hands.

Members then socialized and jammed for the remaining 20 minutes having such a good time they had to be kicked out like last-call at the bar.


Mirf Tales

By Sean Naes


I need to take you on a brief tangent.  I couldn't tell you how many times Mirf has been called Murphy, but not as many that call me Captain instead of Cap'n.  As Mirf has no "E" sound in it, Cap'n has no "T" sound in it.

You may ask yourself, "Self, what does it matter?"  It only matters when details really matter.

For example… I served in the United States Navy, Captain is an official rank that I never held.  Cap'n is a slang term referring to a ships commander regardless of rank.  Not wanting anyone to accidentally confuse my "Stage Name" and my "rank" when I served in the US Navy I use Cap'n instead of Captain… Does it matter?  Only to those whom it matters or those navigating to my website www.capnsean.com.  Adding the "tai" to the Cap'n takes you to a completely different website.  The other nuanced mispronunciation is Mirf sounds like the shortened Irish endearment for Murphy, which leads people to assume Mirf's name is Murphy, just like hearing Cap'n and thinking it's spelled with a T.  Does it matter, only on his legal paperwork but here's why it's Mirf, not Murphy.

As I mentioned earlier in the article "How it started" I never intended to work with livestock, ever.  I was progressing well with my act gaining interest from other venues in other states.  It was a combination of events that happened during the 2022 season that would change the course of my life and my show.  The 2020 season was cancelled due to Covid and the 2021 season was not like the seasons before Covid.  Things were opening up but people were still scared and some were hesitant to attend large gatherings and the Michigan Renaissance Festival is quite the large gathering.  Frankly, the festival lacked the enthusiastic engagement with the patrons I had come to love while performing at outdoor festivals.  A pall still hung over the entire festival as everyone hadn't quite moved on from the pandemic.  Things still felt fairly stagnant.  I was happy to be performing but happy when the season ended.

The 2022 Michigan Renaissance Festival turned out to be electric.  Nothing like the previous year.  People were excited to be at the festival, life was returning and they had money to spend.  The season started out great, the crowds were large and continued to get better each week.  Tragedy struck between weeks two and three.  My fuzzy friend at home that spent all his time with me and waited at the window for my return whenever it left.  Bill the cat died of heart failure in his sleep, I found him early Thursday morning.  I was devastated, I had never had a closer bond with a cat.  I decided that I was going to get another cat, a kitten so that I could train him to travel with me as a companion.  Bill was a big long haired domestic cat with a dash of Main Coon and Norwegian Forest Cat mixed in their.  He was a big beautiful stray mut that I rescued from starvation near my mother-in-law's house.  Bill's size and demeanor I was told was like a Maine Coon so I decided I wanted a Maine Coon kitten and sought out a breeder.  After finding one that I was comfortable with and tendering a deposit I was officially on the waiting list for a male Maine Coon kitten.

If you have already read "How it started" you will remember my friend Blake started harassing me about breaking the rules of circus. "No Pet's on the road" is the rule.  Some of the other taunts Blake would hit me with were "everyone loves fuzzy animals" or "you can't go wrong with an animal in the show".  One of my favorites was "pet's are a liability, livestock's an asset who's care is tax deductible".  Blake did have a point, women and children openly love cat's.  Wherever women and children are, men will follow.  Adding a cat to my show would be a huge draw for my show.  After a couple weeks of Blake blathering on and on about traveling with anything that's not part of the show is against the rules of circus and the rules of circus apply because its all circus my resolve began to erode.  I started seriously thinking about the possibility of adding a cat to my show.  I wanted a kitten so that I could raise him to travel with me so that when I'm by myself on the road I would have a companion.  Blake argued that wasn’t the problem, earning it's keep was the problem.  The rule of circus as Blake puts it is "If it costs you money it must make you money".  Adding a cat to my show is no small feat.  I would have to change the show I spent the last 5 years developing, it was a good show and changing it is a risk.

It was week five I decided to ask my audience their opinion.  My audience is the reason the festival keeps having me back.  Near the end of my show when I do my hat line, I ask the audience to put their discarded playing card pieces in either the basket or my hat along with any gratuities that they have to offer.  I paused the show momentarily and said, "As my audience I need your opinion.  Earlier during the festival my cat Bill died of a heart attack."  (The audience would collectively awe sorrowfully in empathy) I would pause and smile until it would go quiet again.  Then I would continue, "working on the road alone can be lonely so I have decided to get a Maine Coon kitten.  Now I'm told that having an animal on the road that's not in your show is against the rules of circus.  By an affirmative of AYE!  How many of you think I should add a Maine Coon to my show?"  The response that I got from every audience was the same, a loud resounding "AYE!"  I would follow up by saying "This is what I do for living and Maine Coons are not cheap so vote with your tips!"

My audience voted with their tips resoundingly YES!  I decided since the…

  • Michigan Renaissance Festival is how I started performing stage shows outdoors.
  • Michigan Renaissance Festival performers and patrons encouraged me to add the kitten to my show.
  • Michigan Renaissance Festival audience members paid for the kitten.

… since the acronym for the Michigan Renaissance Festival is MIRF and is often referred to as "mirf" I decided to name him Mirf the Magnificent in honor of the place and people that made it possible.

So, that's how Mirf got his name.

However, MIRF management was skeptical of Mirf the Magnificent.  There were changes in management, cuts in staffing.  The old entertainment director departed, the person picking up the slack had another job so nobody really noticed the changes in my contract that I was working with a live animal until I showed up with a live animal Friday evening before opening day.   Opening day at the morning meeting.  Mirf was very well behaved and it was a good thing.  It was his final test.  A guy I will call Evaluator saw Mirf and I in the front row of the seating of the stage the meeting is held at.  The cast, crew and entertainment meet every morning to sign in and find out any relevant and irrelevant information to be dispensed.   Its also a catch up with everyone since last year kind of busy meeting.  Lots of noise, lots of people moving around.  Laughing, yelling, and applause.  Mirf was sitting on the bench near me wearing his harness and leashed to me.  Evaluator guy is the guy that evaluates talent on an ongoing basis.  You'll see him at your show at least once a year, he doesn’t stay for the whole show because he has his own show to do, but he reports to management and I'm pretty sure they follow his recommendations. Evaluator guy walks up to me and says with his arms crossed "So, You're thinking of adding a cat to your show?".  I turn and look at him and say "No, I've added a cat to my show."  It was just at that moment someone did or said something the crowd (of about 100) liked and they jumped up in shouts of jubilee and raucous applause.  As Mirf is just sat there steadfast while everyone around him was pounding on benches and applauding.  As the crowd began to quiet down I watched the expression of extreme skepticism fade into utter awe on the visage of Evaluator guy.  When the crowd quieted down he looked at me and said in an awestruck voice "How do you train a cat?".

That was the question Mirf and I spent a whole year working on and continue to do so…

Next time,  The first show.

Thank you for reading,

Cap'n Sean


Spotlight

By John Smith


As a reoccurring feature of the Magic Messenger we will highlight a member and ask them to answer a few questions about themselves. This month instead of the normal questions, we are reprinting an article written by Ring 22 President Johnny New York featuring Marvin Mathena.

Marvin has been both president of the Detroit Magic Club Ring 22 and President of the Ann Arbor Magic Club Ring 210.

We just couldn't do a better job than Johnny writing up this lifetime member. Here is Ring 22's "A Closer Look" reprinted with permission of Johnny New York.

Marvin Mathena

A Closer Look: MARVIN MATHENA

Feb 8, 2020 by Johnny New York

RING 22 is proud of its unique members and from time to time we like to feature one of our many “superstars” of magic.  Whenever I think about the long-running history of our club, I’m always reminded of  MARVIN MATHENA, who actually became a RING 22 member soon after the club OFFICIALLY began!   In case you didn’t know, MARVIN was originally from Bluefield West Virgina and moved with his father in his early years to Detroit, his father seeking work in our auto factories (the rest of his family reunited in Detroit shortly after a year or two).  He's been a "Detroiter" ever since, becoming a professional magician as a mere teenager after frequenting and “sessioning with the guys” at the Roy Hall Magic Shop in downtown Detroit.

He’s the proud recipient of IBM’s rarely issued certificate for 60+ consecutive years as an IBM member.   MARV actually served as a past President of RING 22 (way back in 1986, when the club met monthly in Ferndale, Michigan), and he has taught magic to many students while working for about 12 years behind the counter at an unnamed magic shop in Garden City that has since fallen by the wayside.

MARVIN is certainly an impressive and accomplished magician.  He has officially been inducted into the IBM MAGIC HALL OF FAME (yes, that’s his picture currently displayed in the American Museum of Magic in Marshall, MI). He’s also been honored in recent years, being inducted into the MICHIGAN MAGIC DAYS HALL OF FAME in 2014, along with well-known magicians Claire Cummins (as in “Milky the Clown”), and Kevin James.  Like many of us, he cut his teeth reading magic books, attending countless lectures, and perfecting his craft while learning the finer points of magic from a couple of well-known mentors you may have heard of -- Carrol Fox and Wayne Dobson.

There are a lot of “FIRSTS” under MARV’s belt since he became a full-time stage illusionist back in the 1970s – the FIRST to cut a lady into sixths, the FIRST to use a fiberglass Hindu Basket (as well as the FIRST to fill the basket with no less than three assistants at one time!).  Not surprisingly, he’s well-versed and familiar with close-up effects as well, and currently his favorite tricks make use of cards, coins, silks -- just about anything he can get his hands on (he even does memdeck work) – all quite remarkable since he is the survivor of two strokes in recent years and is still going strong in the world of magic!

Hats off and a "STANDING O” to MARV MATHENA – it’s safe to say he’s truly a “magician’s magician”, and we're glad he’s always happy to share his unique history with all of us!  THANKS MARVIN!
