Re: Tony Corinda

I just received my 50-year pin as a Master Mason, and all Masons I have known are good and honorable men..... I am also a Knights Templar and have never met a Knight that I do not consider my brother. Most people who know me are unaware of my Masonic affiliations, because I don't wear the jewelry mu...

I am a Mason, but I am unaware of whether or not Tony/Thomas was a Mason .... His privacy should be respected.....

I have been to twenty-one countries (in back-alley clubs in many of them) and can honestly say that I do not believe that any people other than Taliban or far-right-wing Republicans would consider the video as anything other than an attractive young lady doing a pitch for magic tricks....

Re: Magic Technique

Curtis, nice moves. I would guess that they are but one way to affect the rise of a card in a larger Ambitious Card routine.... Your technique is fine.....Toss in some one liners or patter lines that enhance but do not detract from the display of skill... I would love to see a complete Ambitious Car...

Re: Brett Daniels is a Magic Man

I used to go to Tunica every four months to gamble and met Brett Daniels and Paul Harris there. I saw Brett's show 13 times over a few years and enjoyed every one of them....His assistants/dancers did a bit called "You Can Leave Your Hat On" with a gentleman from the audience. I loved that...

Re: looking for a credit for the Jinx Switch

The Jinx says that you drop your dealt hand onto the deck and strip off the cards on the bottom at the same time. I learned a similar move from a gambler, when I was a kid. It is a bit different than that described in Jinx. As your fellow players are picking up their hands, instead of dropping the h...
