Re: Eugene Burger - The Grinch

Thanks for posting this, Scott. I'm not going embarrass myself by admitting how I did guessing the voices.

I did spelunk around the site and listened to the one you did with Charlie Randall. Enjoyed that one. I spent a good bit of time (and money) at H&R. Miss that place and Richard quite a lot.

Re: Al Goshman Video

That was great. I'm glad videos like this find their way to YouTube. They preserve and conserve, and provide - in my opinion - a much needed benchmark.

Re: Buy The Sphinx for only $50!

I see a difference in price between the Conjuring Arts' offering and yours, but that doesn't address my question. Are you suggesting that, if I order this from them (and I am about to) I will be charged a different price than their website lists?

Safari on iPad 3, Firefox on Windows. I suspect it works for you because you're in the Administrators group, I am in the Registered Users group.

Re: Dolts in the Media and Royal Road to Card Magic

To be fair, what he said was "poor illustrations and overly complex descriptions" and, "slights" is now "sleights."

Perhaps he can next be persuaded to obtain "The Royal Road to Card Magic" DVD set by R. Paul Wilson.
