Re: An Ha Lim August Issue

Congratulations on a telling interview. I was most impressed with Ha Lims revelation that he normally practices 5 to 6 hours a day, and when practicing for a competition he ups it to 16 to 18 hours a day. And 2 of those hours he just practices his image, no cards involved. It really gives you a glim...

Re: Respect for Doug Henning

One thing that cannot be argued is that Doug reached the absolute top in his field. Doug had a formula for success that and if studied many could benefit from. I believe his formula was concentrated in these areas: 1. His obvious drive and determination for success. 2. His willingness to take risks ...

Re: Magicians who hate magicians!

However just lately a friend has been trying to get me to shake off the habits of a lifetime and be nice to magicicians. His reasoning is purely a monetary one. He thinks such a course may be good for business. I am quite certain he is right but it is not easy to like people who are basically unlik...

Re: Criss is back at it ...

Me smells a desperate attempt to get some cheap publicity to help keep Believes head above the water. Tick..Tick...Tick. If this is Criss's attempt at publicity, he is worse at getting publicity than he is a magician. With that mouth I wouldnt even recommend him for a childrens birthday party. Pere...

Re: Hank Lee Magic not on a secure server?

Don't know Hank Lee nor his business. Have never bought there. But any business that is not using a secure sever for their checkout is simply not a serious business. I've been told that Hank Lee is one of the biggest mail order companies out there. That's pretty serious. FYI--I have always received...

Re: Who will be the next David Copperfield?

Well said David. Give Chris credit where its due though, he is a master at publicity... Don't you mean, Chris' publicist is a master at publicity? I see your point, Billy. I think I've made it clear that I am not a fan of Chris Angel. But I also know he is not a huge star by accident. He has a dete...

Re: Who will be the next David Copperfield?

Well said David. Give Chris credit where its due though, he is a master at publicity. I am particularly amazed at how popular his is with the younger crowd. Sadly, I am not a member of that crowd anymore. Maybe this is part of why he doesn't resonate with me. I've never made it through a whole episo...

Re: Who will be the next David Copperfield?

He arrived at the right time just when media broadcasting started rolling. All the publicity gave him a bankroll to do whatever he imagined like doing in his shows. Ok so he's perfected the dreamscape magic theatere presentaion but its still a magic show. Apparently you think he just got lucky. Rig...

Re: I-800 numbers.....a dilema!

I got an 800 number primarily for schools because at the time, many schools were not allowed to make long distance calls. My thought was to make it as easy as possible for my client to say yes. I do beleive things are changing and 800 numbers are much less important. Most people have cell phones tod...

Re: Who will be the next David Copperfield?

Like it or not, Chis Angel is the next David Copperfield. I, too, am bombarded with questions about Chris Angel and his 'magic.'

I have long thought that just about every magician I run into at the magic clubs act as if THEY are the next David Copperfield. :)

Re: David & Dania……first lecture in France…what a shame !

This is sad. It reminds me of a lecture I once I attended. The first thing the lecturer did was slowly take a video of everyone in the audience and warned us if anyone steals his ideas he has a record of us being there.

Re: THIS CHICK HAS RIPPED OFF CHRIS HART'S ENTIRE ACT!

Yes, that's a Tina Lenert concept.

How about this Lance Burton rip off?

Re: Blackpool vs Southern England Magic -- War of the Wizards

Competition is what motivates us to excel. It is sad to see when someone tries to shut out the competition instead of using their energy to strive for excellence.

I don't want to hear any more comments about Dustin's remarks re Kohl and Company. The man is entitled to his opinion: PERIOD. Mr. Kaufman, Of course Dustin is entitled to his opinion. But are you saying that only a few are allowed to disagree? Why are you slamming the door on further discussion? W...

Re: IBM/SAM: The Convention of the Century

Dustin certainly has the right to his opinion, although he even admits he was a bit harsh in areas. But I must say, many he has criticized, like Kohl and Company, Todd Charles, and Duane Laflin, I have seen in a different venue and they absolutely brought the house down with applause and approval!
