Re: Too Perfect theory

I just reread my post, because I found a way to almost contradict myself. And I also noticed that one sentence could be seen as a comment on the interesting post above of mister Dave V. It was not meant to be, my excuses if it comes over like that. The last May Genii, Mister Steinmeyer's Khardova de...

Re: Too Perfect theory

Jonathan, nice; Agatha Christie. maybe I misunderstood you ( or my use of the English language is so bad ) but, I meant; lead on the path of believing. It's a fine line between art and craft. For me part of the 'art' in conjuring or being a magician is that you create a context in which people WANT ...

Re: Too Perfect theory

It's the old circus law. We drop 3 times, and then for the final we wring it. Thunderous applause. It works. Even for the people who are into the 'scam'. The failing/ struggling magician. A pity that this is often taken to the direction that the magician is at the end again 'right'. Or, smarter then...

Re: Customer service from Genii.

Hi, Helsinki, Finland. We are approaching winter here and it feels further, further away from anywhere the darker it gets. I will spare everybody the details but; There was an address change, I did not inform this early enough, and after waiting for 2 issues/ months I contacted Genii/ Margret and as...

Customer service from Genii.

Hello,

would like to say that I had recently some very good experience with the customer service from Genii.

Not the most 'hip' thing to start a topic about but these things matter a lot when you order from far, far away.
So, thanks so much again!

Re: Hiro Sakai Magicana

I'm not Carlo, but I feel strongly for this subject so.. I think so, but It ain't easy. Like Jonathan Townsend said, when you are doing magic 'FOR somebody', you are in my opinion not trying to fool them, but to entertain them. I think there is a big difference between the two. Most people don't wan...

Hi Jonathan,
sounds good, but when and where do their boxes appear again? Is there somewhere a demo of this trick?

Have a great summer,

Re: Hiro Sakai Magicana

In the context of 'to TV or not to TV Magician' ; Genii speaks- The Blaine Truth and on. Genii volume 62, number 6 June 1999. Nice 'article' on TV and David Blain. Some interesting essays with different opinions and funny stuff like; the image of magic as 'aging hippies shoving women into boxes' ......

Re: Hiro Sakai Magicana

Great, don't get me started on Finnish television, or Dutch, or.. Maybe 'magic' and TV magic are two different things? I find it's hard to blame someone who makes use of the medium which he/ she is using. TV Magic should maybe get it's own box. Like Movies and Theater play. Nobody blames the movie d...

Re: Hiro Sakai Magicana

Well, I haven't seen the program in a while, but I recall that the "walking through a table" effect began with what I believe was Andrew Mayne's "Pocket Sawing in Half"--followed by a cutaway to Aki Hoshino's reaction--then back to Sakai ("Dr. Leon") already walking to...

Re: Hiro Sakai Magicana

Sorry, I thought this was a magic forum? Sir, I don't know where you are from, but it sounds like a very special place. I received my first copy of Genii, love it. Also the Hiro Sakai magic. I was missing a bit more background story on the difference of Magic Culture. This was lightly touched on in ...
