Re: Hotels near the Magic Castle

I second the Hollywood Hills Hotel. Besides all the free snacks, you also get breakfast at the Magic Castle Hotel. I stayed there in 2009, and it was a pleasant stay. I went there again in September 2012, and it seemed that the rooms had either been renovated, or the room I stayed in was in better c...

Re: The May Issue of Genii is Now Live Online!

I just got my paper copy in the mail here in Seattle. The Merlin article is terrific. Thanks to Jim Steinmeyer for taking all those notes back in the day! I can just imagine how short the article would be if he hadn't.

The Key of The Chrononaut by Master Payne

If any of you are looking to add great-looking props and a great effect to your Steampunk act, you should check out Master Payne's The Key of the Chrononaut. I've seen Payne perform this, and he has a nice storyline and presentation that goes with this effect. The props look really cool, too. The bu...

Re: Switching Decks with Giobbi

I found the DVD not only helpful, but fun to watch. I wasn't able to attend the Genii Bash, but several of my friends were able to go, and the Giobbi lecture was one of the highlights for them. To be able to see what they saw was quite fun, and it was great not seeing the decks switches.

Re: Magic Man

I was expecting a lot more, having heard that J.B. Benn is a good magician. I also noticed that Eric Mead was one of the producers; however, I felt like I had wasted my time watching it. Now, I'm not opposed to wasting my time, but I want to feel good about it.

Re: Magic Man

He uses the same magic words that David Blaine used in his specials, "Look, look, look, look, look." I wanted to like this, but I couldn't. I did like the David Blaine special that aired afterwards, which was a repeat.

These days, comics are expensive IN the US! Back in the old days, I can remember buying Superman for 12 cents. Now they are all $2.99 or $3.99. MAD is $5.99 (cheap). Yikes!
