A Magician’s Point of View



When my magician friend Johnny Tong, had found out that I had been involved with the illusionist,  he had plenty to say on the subject.  With his permission these are his words regarding the Great and Amazing boy wonder magician.


I know him, he is everything I hate about magicians. The craft of magic opens you up to the thoughts of people, it is definitely a power. And like the great Stan Lee has said with great power comes great responsibility . Many magicians are dirty sad pathetic lonely men who use their talent to molest and twist with the hearts of many. Sociopaths often love magic, and practice……………….

    Such a sad tale of deceit and ‘illusion’ and I’m not talking Sleeze Berry!

    Wow, what impressive insights! That all makes so much sense. Johnny Tong could write an article/book on the topic! Damn, all these years that musicians got bad raps — now reading this, musicians are saints compared to magicians. LOL.

    So cool that he credits his wife for him to up his game. That’s how I feel about my husband too, he helped me become a better person. That is what love is, getting each other to the next (higher) level, not dragging each other to the ground.

    So cute how he wrote: “Thank God for her because someone would be blogging about me.” What a sweet, honest, humble, charming guy! I also loved his spelling of the word “deushbag” — never saw it spelled like that before, ha-ha 🙂

    Cute picture with the cat too, this was a good one!

      I have worked for many years on the same gigs with Johnny and he is an awesome performer and his wife was always with him on the jobs. He is a good person.

      • Maryanne Says:

        Yes, definitely sounds like a good person! See, you have all the good ones on your side, that means you’re a good person too 🙂

        • Sex, Spirit, Soul Mates and Chocolate....Ivonne's Journey Says:

          Yes, I like to think I am bascially a good person, but I like to let people know I have a temper and I do not walk away from a fight. And that’s what this whole story had been about the fight of good over evil and if you don’t call out evil–it just keeps happening over and over. And the support from all of you has been so validating and healing, especailly when you have around people that believe him over you–makes you feel like you are the crazy one.

          • Maryanne Says:

            No, don’t think you’re the crazy one. He’s just manipulating them. I know people who do that. They are very good at it, but they will pay in the end, trust me, because truth always comes out.

    Oohhh! Sneaky little buggers!!! LOl Night Ivonne, hugs from Oz! ……Paula x

    There’s that endless cycle. A repeating them for all of these types. 🙂

    • Sex, Spirit, Soul Mates and Chocolate....Ivonne's Journey Says:

      Yes, and magic is such an “old boys club”–they mostly resent women,especially female magicians. They cover up for each other’s affairs–so yes, it’s nice when one of their own actually tells the truth of hos it is. This was so validating coming from Johnny.

      • Maryanne Says:

        There’s always a flip side too. I had a male friend who was burned badly by a woman (who cheated on him, stole his money/credit cards, used him, etc.). He became a magician, briefly on a very low scale but did some amazing performances with comedy too. He got the negativity out of his system with his magic act. It was a good thing for him as the creativity really helped him get over a bad time.
