Re: prominent blog praises Sleights of Mind

I'm not a pickpocket, either genuine or fraudulent, but my impression from listen to others is not the same as yours. I have heard that Dunn's act was mostly stooged. If I remember right - A stooge is a person that "traveled" with the act and was paid by the performer to act like a member...

Re: Tom Stone's Definition of Magic

In my opinion Magic as a craft and perhaps as a performing art is unexplained science plus theater.

My dad the late Billy Bishop used to say Magic was "Grown up show and tell".

Re: Tom Stone's Definition of Magic

I don't think gambling demos are magic or magical. They are a display of skill. They are awesome, but not magic, to me. Well, I have seen a lot of different kind of performers do gambling expo acts. And I have seen some that are very magical but I guess that depends on the person doing it and their...

Re: Tom Stone's Definition of Magic

You have seen gambling demos where the performer says he is using supernatural methods to achieve what he is doing? Yes and it was part of a mental act that used gambling expo and the way he exp...

Re: Tom Stone's Definition of Magic

I've never seen a gambling demo where the performer alludes to supernatural methods. Oh I have. And on top of that the audience walked away feeling that they witnessed someone with skill that could not be explained other than supernatural. And in my opinion that is what magic is partly about.

Re: Wonderball

Well Tom I guess we have a different opinion on floating an object and theater. I have seen people do the zombie ball and all there is to fool people is a magician moving a ball around on a stick.
