The chimeric Armando Lucero is an underground legend who rarely lifts his head into the social media let alone taking time to record his thoughts in a conversation for public consumption. Armando has a unique perspective on magic and a philosophy on our art that gives us something to ponder. His commitment to the art and deep understanding of what we do is phenominal. In this rare recording of our conversation, Armando uncovers the veil to give us a glimpse into his mind and world of how he views magic.
Time stamps for this podcast:
00:05:18 - Armando Lucero talks about his thoughts on magic competitions, getting out of magic then back in, conducting yourself in a professional manner and not responding to every request to perform, creativity, woiking with "The Illusionists", and more.
01:09:37 - Product Review: "Epic Writer" by MagicWorld.co.uk A gimmick for "secret writing" of your spectator's "thoughts". Recommended.
01:16:30 - Product Review: "Impossible Box V 2.0" by Ray Roch produced by Paul Romhany. A clever origami box made from six playing cards then used in a clever Chop Cup routine on stage or strolling without any gimmicks. Recommended.
01:21:10 - Product Review: "Chinese Tweezers" by Mario Lopez from Vernet Magic. A non-gimmicked version of removing coins from within the hole of the Chinese coins using tweezers. Clever, but angly problems. Ungimmicked coins provided and link to online instructions. Recommended with caveats.
