Re: Hank Lee

Times are very tough for brick and mortar magic dealers, and ALL magic dealers. The desperation brought on my the possibility of economic catastrophe sometimes leads men to criminal acts, or suicide. If Hank Lee is guilty, then a little good old pity might be in order. There's a difference, albeit ...

Re: Real Secrets Trick of the Month Club...

Seems like a bloody good project, sans the mysterious owner. Maybe we'll all be invited to an old house on an island, like in Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None".

Good show! I'm in.

Re: A statement from Wayne Dobson concerning David Penn's actions.

Ever watch the Petty/Penn show and how it's clear these two know nothing about magic history? They are quite ignorant. That's BAD for people that review products. I watched a Petty dvd and couldn't believe what a horrid performer he is. I'm actually not surprised they turned out to be lying, unethic...

Re: Twisting the Aces

@Dustin Stinnet: do the dates of these threads matter? If birthday wishes were being given and the person was long dead, I could see you raising the point.

Dustin, do you only perform new magic in fear someone may say "do you realize that trick is over 200 hundred years old?"

The suck ups on the Cafe are haling Brooks as if he was the Cecil B. DeMille of the magic world. He runs an online forum, where he and his goon squad staff get kickbacks in order to promote their newest products. Brooks is more like P. T. Barnum.
