Andy Pugens 1952-2014 PDF Print E-mail
Written by David Swoboda   
Friday, 05 September 2014 00:00

With a sad heart, I must report the passing of Andy Pugens (Andrew G. Pugens) this past Thursday, September 4, 2014.

The magic of Andy inspired so many youngsters and adults over his vibrant 62 years of life! Having first meet Andy while still a teenager, I am humbled to still call him a friend 38 years later. We will all miss you Andy. A great man, magician and friend...

Our prayers go out to Angie, Andy's guiding light for 42 years, and his relatives and friends.

Andy was a member of the I.B.M. Ring 41, Houdini Club of Wisconsin, and the SAM Assembly 61.

A quick note from the webmaster... Print E-mail
Friday, 07 March 2014 00:00

 

The State of Things.

As longtime visitors know, I have been running this website site since August of 2009. It is a labor of love, for the art of magic. It's my attempt to make up for the middle years of my life where magic got lost in the shuffle.

This is not a commercial venture, but it does cost me money each year to keep it running. Not to mention a lot of free time to update. Over the years, several friends and a few strangers have helped me pay the bills and keep the local magic news appearing. They know who they are.

I am deeply grateful for your help.

But, times are getting tough, and shortly, I need to make a decision on whether to keep the data flowing. Without help, I will be shutting down this website when my current contract expires.

Please consider clicking the GREEN banner over on the right and donating $5 to help keep MagicInWisconsin.com running. With your help we can keep this site the "go to place for magic events" for years to come.

A few quick facts: The site has promoted 180 events as of today. That's 3.1 events per month for four and a half years. Twenty-one Wisconsin magicians are posted in our local magicians directory. Links in articles here have been clicked on over 40,000 times. The free banners that I post here have been clicked on 31,750 times since I turned them on. Several Wisconsin magicians have thousands of clicks direct to their websites because of MagicInWisconsin.com. I can only hope it has garnered them some work.

But, I have no empirical evidence that anyone needs this website. I have a fair amount of web traffic, but that doesn't really tell me if anyone finds this site useful in the grand scheme of things.

So, as I add some new posts for upcoming events, I find myself wondering, "is this website useful to local magicians?"

Do you find this website useful? If so, don't forget that GREEN button.

Sincerely,

David Swoboda

Houdini, His Life and Legend - Tuesday, May 6, 2014 Print E-mail
Friday, 02 May 2014 00:00

William Pack will introduce us to the life and times of Houdini. Houdini was the most famous man of his time. And, over 80 years after his death, Houdini is still the most famous name in magic. One of the most written about figures of the 20th century, he is inspiration to generations of children who dare to dream of the impossible. In Houdini His Life & His Legend, William Pack uses storytelling and historical magic recreations to go beyond the myth and bring to life the true story of this American icon. This program is free and open to the public. Funding is provided by the Friends of the Muskego Public Library.
