We had one goal for February, and that was to complete the Notable Illusionists of History series. Did we meet that goal? No. No good reader we did not. We'll have to end with a wimper sometime during this month of equinox.
Please accept as a consolation prize these two videos that we had nothing to do with. Like, we didn't even post them to YouTube. We just found them and embeded them here. That's what it's come to.
