Re: Don England

It’s a sad day indeed. Don was an ingenious creator, a smooth performer, a gentle man and a friend. I treasure the time that I was able to spend with him. I was honored that Don asked me to write his next book. Sadly, the project never reached fruition due to his declining health. We are fortunate t...

Re: Alaskan Poker by Ricky Jay

I don't care for Ammar's presentation. It makes a fine bit of sleight of hand seem like a sporting event or a contest. I haven't watched the clip, but after the Aces roll out, that's when you spread the deck to show that the cards are now facing all one way. Then, after a pause, is when you spread ...

Re: The SS Adams Vanishing Half Dollar & their other classic

Back in 1973, the Adam's Finger Chopper is the first magic prop that I bought, at the tender age of 13. A couple of years later, I decided that I was "too cool" to use it and sold it for a buck at some magic club auction. I still hate myself for that impulsive, narcissistic decision. I pur...

Re: Neil Patrick Harris on Freakshow

So, what did you think of the episode? I thought it was very good. Neil’s character is a delightfully disturbing addition to the show. His creepy conjoined carnal coupling brings new meaning to the term double-header!
