Re: Magic pet peeves.. stir things up!

What seems to hit a nerve is your overly simple definition of a lame trick from a magician viewpoint. Could this include the dancing cane - obvious method if poorly performed and also done by so many? I believe you agree that the dancing cane properly performed can be magic beyond belief. Enjoy
