Full Disclosure Event

The End Is Near...

Well, not likely, but just in case, I'll be documenting every aspect of my life using the internet and my smart phone. Over the next 33 days (ending January 20th) I'll be posting a daily video, picture, energy/stress levels, any food consumed, locations visited, random thoughts, interviews, etc.

All the links can be found in the Full Disclosure tab of the website.

Updated Birthday Party Setlist for 2013!

My birthday parties start and end with the birthday child in order to give them the largest spotlight with the goal in mind of having everyone involved at some point during the show. The birthday child (and a few other party goers) get some very unique souvenirs from the effects they participated in.

My show has been updated for the new year, becoming even more visual, and even more Amazing! My goal was to be able to widen the age groups that are able to enjoy the show.

The new setlist features a dozen effects that even my closest friends haven't seen; including seven effects that weren't used in the 2011/12 shows!

Now's the perfect time to book a show!!!

"The Forks"

I like to compare what I do to other fields of entertainment, music, for instance. Sometimes I'll make a joke to my audience that they should "sing along if they know the words" before asking them to pick a card. It's a bit easier to be a fan of a musician. To start with, the things they perform have titles. A lot of what I do has a title too, it's just that people wouldn't be aware of it. Instead, it's up to my audience to make up the names of effects when they want to see me repeat something. I've heard "do the bouncy trick", "do that thing you did with the queens", but, most often I hear "do the forks."

No new video this Monday as a result of last week's video. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out, but be forewarned, it may be too much for some people. Also keep in mind that the "2012 Prophecy" is underway as the NHL Playoffs move into the second round. More info available in this video from July of 2011

Day 3: Ate at an indoor Sonic restaurant
Day 4: My first New Year's celebration in Texas (as well as my first pumpkin pie shake.)
Day 5: My first January in Texas. I've now been in Texas every month, though my last February was in 2007. (I also ran into a construction cone on the freeway for the first time)
Day 6: Ate a deep fried Twinkie at an outdoor winter carnival. (This was a first for the Twinkie, winter carnival, and I believe it was even the first time I ever went on carnival rides.)
Day 7: Tried my best to eat an orange, just don't understand it still!

Week 2 - January 4th

Day 8: Learned about REcaptchas, never knew there was something to know about them! http://www.google.com/recaptcha/learnmore
Day 9: I don't know how to put this one, but I'll sum it up as "made an effort to branch out in Texas"
Day 10: Went to an all hockey sports bar in Houston. Very excited to see hockey with my eyes again! Forgot my wallet though!
Day 11: Walked out without paying
Day 12: Found out all my relative's birthdays
Day 13: Pretty much got asked to join a Ponzi scheme

Day 23: Uploaded a picture to tinypic.com... I feel awkward now, those pictures just stay there forever?!

Day 25: Deep fried my own cheese sticks!
Day 26: Took the toll road to work to avoid construction
Day 27: Interacted with some Occupiers at Occupy Houston (I definitely do not get the movement any more.)
Day 28: It was too wet and gray for the zoo. I bought some color safe bleach for my clothes and a webcam.

Day 29: Went out and played pool. I lost 3 games to 1! I then lost foosball immediately after that.
Day 30: Was asked by this guy if he could remix one of my songs. I hadsta say "yes."
Day 31: Signing up for Skype (haven't done it yet, rough day yesterday)
Day 32: A new hangout
Day 33: Finding a Buffalo Wild Wings in Texas that plays the WWE pay per views. This is very important to me as it was such a huge and fun part of my routine back home.
