2013 Mind Reader Stage Show

Mind Reading is impossible.

But is it really?

Our minds tell on us all the time. Our thoughts can be influenced. Just think of apparent lie detection methods, body language reading, advertisements, and horoscopes. Mind Reading is more the study of how our brain can be read, influenced, and more. In this Technological Age where the entire world is at your fingertips, the human mind may be one of our last remaining mysteries.

Join along for a live action history lesson of mind reading as a performance art. You'll learn how to improve your memory quicker than you may think is possible, participate in some mind games, and witness a jaw dropping presentation of non-psychic "Mind Reading" that doesn't involve actors, sleight of hand, or hidden earpieces.

Come watch the show that's guaranteed to make you ask,

"What am I thinking?"

New Month 5 - January 2013

Every January since 2009 I've done something new each day for the entire month. This is my fifth new month and it went a little something like this:

Week 1

Day 1: Celebrated New Year Day. This was also my first new year BACK in Michigan. I've never been able to say that before in my life as I've always lived in Michigan.
Day 2: Learned to tie my tie
Day 3: Watched an episode of Arrested Development and ate at the largest Buffalo Wild Wings in the U.S.
Day 4: Played euchre at a friend from high school's house

Day 26: squeezed my own tangerine juice
Day 27: went to the Auto Show in Detroit
Day 28: made bacon bits for macaroni

Final Days

Day 29: adopted a cat from an animal shelter (I mean, I DIDN'T, but my girlfriend did. I did something else today too, but can't remember what it was. I remembered last week and then forgot now...what was it?!)
Day 30: personal
Day 31: used "new-skin" liquid bandage
