Re: Coin Board

My dad had a board, and I think I saw Danny pitch at the 1964 World's Fair! I was a mere 4 years old. I later found a board in an antique store in Albany, it has printed on the side "Made in Occupied Japan." Here is a video of David Copperfield (on Conan) talking about a wonderful moment w...

Not Mine, but pretty cool Tarot Cards?Ebay

I am not selling these, but they do look pretty cool, and are probably collectable. Edward Gorey's Fantod set of 20 Tarot cards. Forecasts futures like; catarrh, spasms, or shriveling! Maybe you should Google Images first, there seems to be better examples on Google images... http://www.ebay.com/itm...

Re: Nudity in Magic

...and then there once was this guy who shed all of his clothes, appearing only in tight-whiteies. A clever tool that allowed for wonderful mis-direction, as another "off-stage" helper loaded predictions into a locked crystal box.

Re: An early Penn (Julie Brown) and Teller on MTV/Halloween

"Downtown" was African American, and headed up The Grind first shot at the Palladium. This Julie Brown called herself "the real Julie Brown." I think she peaked right after this was shot with some "Chicks from Mars Movie."

An early Penn (Julie Brown) and Teller on MTV/Halloween

No real magic here, but Penn and Teller got invited to the MTV Halloween Party around 1987. Penn went in costume as Julie Brown. Confused? So am I. Teller reveals some Apple Razor blade prank you can make at home. This was about a year after I broke into NYC television. MTV was one of our biggest cl...

Re: Frank Garcia on David Susskind
