Re: Card magic in Canada

Bob has given you a red herring, Pepe. I think he may be reluctant to admit that there is no card magic in Canada because the Canadian card masters change their name and move to the U.S.

Like David Verner, for example. :)

Re: The Final Piece of the Genii Convention Puzzle: GUY HOLLINGWORTH JUST BOOKED!

I hope Guy will consider performing his Erdnase show so more people will get a chance to see it. I saw it at The Magic Castle and it was a wonderful presentation.

My guess for Dustin's dream addition: Ricky Jay.

Best,
Alan

Re: Jimmy Grippo

Thanks for sharing that story, Geno. I had never heard it before and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Come to think of it, I enjoy all of your Vegas stories. I hope you'll keep them coming.

Re: Free SEO basic advice

Mr. Goat, What importance, if any, would you put on using Meta tags for the sake of other search engines, such as Bing or Yahoo? Clearly Google is the leading search engine, but is it wise to eliminate the meta tags if the other engines still use them? Or are the others so insignificant that they ca...

Re: Max Maven at the Skirball

I'm really disappointed that I missed this event. It fell below my radar entirely.

I just checked the Skirball site and didn't find any additional dates scheduled. Does anyone know if Max will be doing this lecture again?

Re: New card mark system ebook now available

Hey Pete,
Is your marking system intended for blue cards as well as red? I wondered because I saw the picture on your site of the red deck and red sharpie and thought perhaps it doesn't work equally as well for both colors. Thanks,
Alan

Re: Is Genii getting smaller?

A few less pages or not, I'm impressed that Mr. Kaufman can continue to bring us such a high quality magazine each month at the current price. My support for Genii remains.

Re: MagicPedia Request.

Hey Joe,
My special request would be Karl Fulves. I think his contribution to the art is above question, yet he seems to have remained fairly low profile over the years and in my eyes, an enigma. I would be interested to learn more about him.

Jimi Hendrix gets shuffled

Not magic, but very cool:

David Alvarez of Leavenworth, Washington used more than 8,500 Bicycle playing cards to construct a portrait of guitarist legend Jimi Hendrix.

Re: February Issue of Genii Now Arriving!

Arrived in Sherman Oaks, CA on January 22. The center spread came loose on my copy but in perfect condition otherwise.

For my money, this particular issue alone is worth the price of a subscription.
