Sometimes life just works out great. I was recently in NYC to promote my Green Magic Set. Which by the way will be out in a few months. I partnered with the Toy Company - Imagiplay - to bring it to market. While in New York, I got lucky and VH1 decided to use me for a "bumper" segment on VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown. It was a short segment... but I had long enough to crack the host Jim Shearer up - on camera. I like it. I love making people laugh. The best part of all... my nephews Asa and Eli... happened to be watching Sunday morning TV and started yelling and screaming at the TV... because Uncle Steve was on it. A terrific surprise. This made me really happy. Sometimes life just works out great.

Wow. Toy Fair in New York City was just fantastic! I met a bunch of cool people, saw a bunch of cool toys, and the feedback on the worlds first GREEN MAGIC SET was just terrific. Imagiplay's booth was colorful and fun and the Imagiplay team and I had an awesome time. Barbera Aimes - the owner of Imagiplay - even got good at performing the POLLUTION PADDLE trick. Good magic takes practice. And she practices a lot! The best news. VH1's Top 20 Video Countdown taped a segment with me. I was able to perform the Eco Wands trick from our magic set. The show is slated to air this week... so check your local listings. Even more good news. Amazon.com is going to carry the entire line of Imagiplay products - which includes the official STEVE TRASH GREEN MAGIC SET. Wow is that great or what? All the work to get the tricks themed and figured out and up to snuff has been worth it. The sets should be available in a couple of months. I'll keep you posted. Steve :)
