Re: Geller stoops to a new low

Ha! Poor wording. What I meant was that I miss Randi's outspoken engagement with charlatans like Geller. But I do not agree it was "good sense" keeping him quiet on this story. He has shown good sense his entire career as an outspoken skeptic. The morning after Geller had failed on the Ca...

For me, the sign of a great act is if I'm up all night after seeing the show compulsively re-working my own material.

Re: Himber Linking Rings

I'm curious about the fuller history -- do we know if anyone was doing this prior to Al Koran? Mary Kodell has mentioned it as "Al's trick" -- and I know his gimmick was simpler than the arthritis ring. Was Al's work prior to Diaconis (as I assume...); is this his plot?

Re: Voice Changing Microphone

The most practical approach is to do it as a track and lip sync. Record the lines you need, and using a site like Fiverr, Guru, or Elance hire a sound engineer (quite affordable at high quality via these sources) have it distorted how you want.

Great set. And what a pleasure to see a host who can be funny and charming without fighting the performer.

Jamy was right there with him, in the moment and genuinely funny. The set had a great structure, got maximum theatrical value/impact out of the tools he was using. Excellent work.
