Why New People Cannot Join the Genii Forum at the Moment

Re: Magic Live Tickets For Sale

We are still not at break-even yet at the Genii Convention. I don't think we're making that much of a difference to MAGIC Live.

But we have plenty of registrations left, and I'm about to announce a new artist to the lineup, so as Monty Hall used to say, "Come on down!"

Re: The Future of Magic in the Hands of...China?

While there is often some wording in the contract a dealer has to sign about not selling copies (the legal issues are murky, trust me--it's generally not a simple answer), it is usually ignored. We try to do better at the Genii convention where possible.

This is just one of many projects that the Chinese government (or local politicians) try to get rolling and stall out. I was there at the outset and from my understanding not much has been done yet. And it's been years.

Re: Jennings 67

Jennings had a warm conversational performance style. Not Mark's style, but certainly a valid one. Larry is not really performing in the tape/DVD shot in Louis Falanga's home. There are no spectators as I recall, and Larry (as most performers do) really fed off the energy coming from spectators. The...
