Hello fellow conjurors, My name is Josiah Orsie and i am 33rs old. I live on the eastcoast of the United States, in a little state called Maryland. Ever since age 10 when my uncle Milton did a card trick for me (which i later found out was from "royal road to card magic") i have been fascinated with magic. I begged him for months to teach me the trick, until one day out of the blue when i stopped begging him i was over visiting my grandmother and he said i wanna show you something, he took my in the other room and there was a deck of cards on the table. My face lit up like a christmas tree! He sat me down and asked me if i really want to learn this, and if i do that i would have to practice it over and over and keep showing it to him until i got it down before performing it in front of others. That gave me a early sense of discipline in life which i think i have used generally all the way until now in life. He taught me the trick, i practiced it over and over and over and finally had it down. I was soo excited when i got to perform it in front of the rest of my family and friends. 

Years Passed, i was a teen and very busy with school, and got into music / guitar / singing
long story short i went through from that point most of my life doing music even till this day.
All those years in between up until about age 31 i Had not picked up a deck of cards except to play texas hold ' em. So about 2 years from today i came across a magic shop called Denny and Lee's Magic Studio (which luckily i live 20 min away from and is one of the most amazing sources anywhere for Magic, especially if you are into books) I randomly came a crossed it, stopped in, and was filled with that same excitement and wonder from when i was 10 years old. The old guy at the counter stood up with a huge grin and most inviting face and voice and said "heya fella, what brings you in today?"
I said "i didn't know actually, but i do know now!". He then started to tell me about the wonderful world of Books. Needless to say i have been hooked on the magic books ever since and have started my collection.

Sorry for the long introduction, i just felt a bit inspired to explain. So basically in a nutshell
I am a kid in an adults body, really Just starting magic for the first time (for real, this time) and the art of Card Conjuring is what does it for me. I also really love mentalism mixed with the card and book magic.

 Sincerely, Josiah

I've put a copy of JAW DROPPERS TWO aside for you - running short.  When ordering you can PayPal directly to harrylorayne@earthlink.net - and be sure to say if you want the book autographed for/to you.

Welcome to the Magician's Forum! 

Don't worry about grammar police. You won't find any of that here.

I look forward to getting to know you!

Rudy

Welcome Josiah, you will have a great time here! 

You will find a lot of magicians willing to answer questions you may have about magic. Don't forget to check all the threads/posts. They may already have answers to some of your questions.

We also have the Saturday Sessions (we just had one last week, Sat Jun 2, and they may take place about once a month) where we meet and show/teach each other some of the effects we may be working on at the moment. Yes, they are video sessions so we see each other and present those effects. 

And we just recently (this week) got the chat room where you could meet some of the fine people on TMF and chat with them.

So I hope to see you around TMF!

Welcome Josiah. I'm new to this forum too. Just joined. I love mentalism as well. Looking forward to seeing your progress as a magician. I've been practising magic for a little under 6 years.

Welcome YEO

Your handle suggests you might be Canadian - are you in Ontario?
