Marathon prize sponsor: Strange Things

As I make my peace with the likelihood that I will make my home in New York City for the rest of my natural life, I take some comfort in the fact that living here provides me with some rare opportunities. Prominent among them, the opportunity to witness firsthand some truly strange things. It's not every city where the streets are littered with performance artists dressed in Superman pajamas and old women wearing their shoes as a hat (that was my Friday night, BTW). Then, of course, there's the classiest kind of strange thing…
 
You well know, of course, that magic is magical. And we're going to be having a dose of the classic variety of magic (in addition to our usual quiz magic) at our Tenth Anniversary Quiz Marathon Spectacular; not only in the form of a guest performer (details TBA in this space), but also courtesy of a literally fantastic sponsor: The Artifice Group, NYC's premier magicians, mind-readers, pickpockets and prognosticators, who in addition to traveling the world to delight private clients with their supernatural aptitude, thrill the paying public twice a month at the Peoples Improv Theater here in Manhattan with their show Strange Things.

But, if you're lucky, you can be the nonpaying public. The ticket go for $10, but we're going to have a passel of them as part of the massive Marathon prize haul, redeemable anytime you please (Strange Things is typically Thursday nights, always at the PIT). As a teaser, behold the mystical might of the AG's frontmen, Matthew Holtzclaw and Prakash Puru.


This is so freakin' beyond anything I could ever do; I once impressed a ten-year-old with a card trick I learned in an issue of Dynamite, but that's about my limit. Plus, they're funny, and chicks seem to dig them.

BTW, want a minor clue for one of the 8 zillion questions I'm working on for the Marathon? Watch this video; I'm going to ask you how it was done. 'Cause I'm like that…
