Sorry….long time no text…lol.
We’ve been overwhlemed with parties. Even with the economy in a recession business hasn’t slowed down…yet (knocks on wood). I just read an interesting fact posted on the Hawaii Baby Expo website. In 2008, there were over 19,000 births in the state of Hawaii. That’s a lot of babies. Heck, that’s a lot of dirty diapers…eeewww. Well, 95% of my parties are 1st birthday celebrations. It’s amazing how 1st birthdays are celebrated here in the islands. It’s a phenomenon. I tell many to call the travel channel to do a documentary. Someone invite Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods or Anthony Bourdain of No Reservations. Well, to all the locals…you lucky you live Hawaii.
MAGIC SHOW UPDATES: We have debuted a few new materials for the show over the past year such as the incredible growing/shrinking head as performed by Bruce Kalver, OLBS 2.0 by Jay Mattioli, and Big Babies by Axtell Expressions. I know I’ve shared that we wanted to add some excerpts of the show, well we’ve just added a few video excerpts that’ll be added to the official Balloon Twisters Hawaii website…see the actual videos below.
Professionally, I was voted as the new acting Vice President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians (IBM) local chapter. Other notable members in IBM are Mike Ching, Professor Fun, Glenn Bailey, and more. IBM is the largest organization of magicians featuring over 12,000 members worldwide and over 300 local groups called rings in more than 73 countries. I am blessed and honored to be able to network and be a part of a great organization.
Personally, I’ve been accepted to the University of Hawaii’s Master’s Program and will be starting in the fall. That’ll mean I may have to cut back on the business for a bit. We’ll see. I’ve always wanted to earn a master’s degree, but more importantly I wanted to wear the green and white of the University of Hawaii. I can be an alumni. Wow, I can truly be a UH Warrior fan. I got to sport the UH logo on my car now…lol.
More updates…please be sure to check out the Balloon Twisters Hawaii page on Facebook and become a fan.
So, what are you waiting for? Tell your friends to invite ”The friendliest balloonists, magicians, and face painters in the 808 state” to their event.
Until next month…keep smiling,
Richard aka “Da Balloon & Magic Guy”
We are discontinuing the calendar of events on the blog. Click on the link www.balloontwistershawaii.com. to see the most up-to-date calendar of events. I have had some professionals advising me to remove or relocate the calendar, but based upon my bookings, many have shared that it is one of the many reasons that they book our services.
TRICK OF THE MONTH:
We finally have some video excerpts of the show. I’ve got a few more to come. I couldn’t download everything at once. One features the “Ring in Gumball Machine and Ring-a-Majig” and the other features “Big Babies.” I hope I can bring some smiles and laughter to you and your friends…ENJOY!
