Re: NEW DVD Sweet & Birthday Card

Took some muggle friends to see Diamond Jim perform one evening and Sweet was the one trick they couldn't stop talking about. What was especially irritating was that it also had ME fooled! I think it is fantastic. The birthday card trick has some great touches that you'll love even if you already do...

Just read this article in the Washington Post. Congratulations to all mentioned, although the standard of writing in the Post has really gone to the dogs since I lived in the area. Interesting to see that Richard Kaufman is "surprisingly, one of the big local supporters of phone magic." Al...

Re: The Goat vs. [censored] on the Cafe

Ian,

Nobody is leaving the Bistro. I think I have just brokered an historic peace agreement between Mark and Goat.

Next, I will use my marriage counseling skills on Mark and Quentin!

Re: The Goat vs. [censored] on the Cafe

Glenn, I am sorry, but I have no idea who you are. I don't just offer a room to anyone. And the fact that Ian has spurned me and turned down my most generous offer means I am now unlikely to give the room to anyone.

I love how threads can take a sudden, unexpected turn. I do love the Avengers and Diana Rigg was indeed yummy. Interestingly, Joanna Lumley of the New Avengers once babysat me when I was a kid.

He is definitely a real person. He used to be a member here. There was a vote on whether he should be banned. There was a large turnout and the vote was overwhelmingly in his favor.

I still don't know what autoblog means. I think it is more interesting that hearing about Richard being slightly tipsy in 1998.

And the problem with Mother is that after a while you realize you've just read the same story for the fifth time.

Re: Dr Sacks Dice Routine

In all seriousness, it really is difficult to say a trick is either good or bad. It is a personal thing. And some performers can take a piece of coal and create a diamond. But there are some routines that seem to consistently find their way into performers' repertoires. Card-to-wallet, coins across,...

Damian was fooled precisely because he is a magician and was thinking like one. Most magicians drop the trick soon after learning it because it fails the girlfriend/wife test.

Because it is crap.

Mark, you have changed your tune. You have agreed with me on many previous occasions that it has a weak ending. That is why you added the die-from-nose. Don't make me go copy-and-pasting on you.
