20 September 1997 - STAGE MAGICIAN
I'd planned my most spectacular illusion so far for last night's show, but it didn't go as planned. I was was going to have a live horse materialise on stage.
I spent hours reading books on matter transportation, only to discover it hadn't been invented yet. My next plan was to suspend the horse high up in the lighting rig, and get a stage hand to cut the rope on cue. Unfortunately, the stage hands refused because they said it would "kill the horse".
