Re: Magicians Head to Haiti

Ask the Haitian people what they think. All the companies that will donate money that you hear on the news is for the same reason. They want people to talk about them...I have no problems with that. My point is that Haiti needs the money. Whatever way it reaches them. Too bad people are capitalizing...

Re: Magicians Head to Haiti

If he collects 50,000$ for Haiti and gets LOADS of press coverage...good for him! Every penny counts. Oh he probably does it for press coverage also but at the same time, he collects money for those in need. He gained a few points in my heart.

Re: Pick the new Martin Nash book Cover

First, I too think that something better can be done and as for the importance of the cover, I think that it is very important. For me it should reflect the inside of the book and the personality of (in this case) M. Nash. This is why cover #1 is not at all appropriate (if you remember a genii issue...

Re: Anyone know a teabag routine?

I don't remember who (might be Harkey) where he broke the string and put the tea bag in a cup. Now the magi still holding the string hangs it over the tea bag in the cup. Then while pulling it, the tea bag as magically reattached itself on the string.
