Re: Blackpool updates

You were missed Richard, well by me anyway ;-)
A slightly quieter Blackpool, possibly because of the forthcoming FISM.
The stand out highlight for all being Yu Ho Jin I guess.
For me, I loved seeing what Chad Long and Michael Weber had to offer. It was a fun weekend.

Re: Great idea for a kids' show

It's easy to seem the fool in front of a classroom. I give the kids about two minutes to figure out what sort of "talent" they have given the film crew etc.


I admit I am thick but what does that mean?

Re: The Magicians come to BBC One on Saturday nights

Reading between the lines I think there were some non magical TV execs at the top over-ruling some of the magical input from other areas. Hence it was at times badly shot or edited. A Million Dollar Mystery style effect had a lot of the mystery removed because we were kept on a front shot for virtua...

Interesting points made but is misdirecting someone the same as fooling them? I could be misdirected during a card under glass routine but I don't think I'd be fooled.

Re: Walkaround Design Duplication

Place it into a peek wallet, or a 'sight unseen' type wallet. You can even place it in the wallet and steal straight back out onto the card pile.... many options where you don't need to appear to be still hanging onto it. Quite a few options for obtaining an impression from the card too?
