Updating Crap

Last week and this coming week have and will be really crazy, hence the recent dearth of posting (although, to be perfectly honest and with no hard feelings to other bloggers, I'm still posting with greater regularity than many of the blogs out there). However, I thought I'd let you know and prepare you for the weeks ahead, when Pagliacci comes back full force.

Things to come:
- David Copperfield facts (think Chuck Norris facts and you'll see where this'll be going)
- More inspirational quotes (no, seriously, they're for you to think about life and magic)
- How to make more money doing magic while working less (some simple advice that could hopefully net you bigger paychecks)

See you soon - check back often!
