Re: Respect for Doug Henning

Re: Respect for Doug Henning

When it comes to Doug and his style of dress and appearance, this was soley defined by his beleif in New Age and folowing The Maharishi. No one can doubt he did participate in the resugance of magic but I also beleive that shows like The MIke Douglas Show, Merv Griffin and The Tonight Show and other...

Re: Sigfried and Roy on 20/20 Tonight!

It was a bit uncomfortable to watch, yet at the same time uplifting, emotional, touching, inspiring. Overall, thrilling. I worked at Radio City Music Hall and was very lucky to see Siegfried and Roy numerous times when they brought their production to New York for three weeks. Didn't see them in Ve...

Re: Magic on Monk Friday?

I finally got to watch this episode, and as a Monk fan, I really enjoyed it. I have a question, is there a room in the Magic Castle same as the boiler room? I ask because I recently saw the episode of Hart to Hart with The Late Harry Blackstone Jr. as the magician/villian and he kept Max (the Hart's...

Re: getting cheated buying online

Hi Bob, that seems like very sound advice. I am not against buying online. I have purchased from many online suppliers. Also I may not have been clear that there have been many times I ordered form Hocus Pocus with no issues. I agree that there are many more who have had a "no issue" histo...

Re: getting cheated buying online

Hi Ray, yes I realized that Richard did the Canadian comment and I in haste clicked reply on the wrong post.

I do not want to turn this into a "bank" thread. that disusion could be held on an appropriate forum such as Timebomb, the tree of liberty etc.

Re: getting cheated buying online

It was sent UPS by the way. This has nothing to do with the Canadain postal service. Why do you feel to be insulting because I am Canadian? what does that have to do with it? Should I go on about how our banks are not failing? No because that is irrelevant, I am sharing my experience with a company ...

Re: getting cheated buying online

I am sorry to say that is completely true Richard.
Except I may not have been clear but they did say they would send it when I spoke to them but I have yet to receive it.
It is unfortunate and feel bad that I have had to make this public in order to get thier attention.

getting cheated buying online

I am at a loss, since it seems when one has issues with getting buying online magic we have no recourse fopr satisfaction when we feel we have been cheated or misled. I have, as many others, have purchased magic and found the secret to be impractical for normal use etc. That is the risk as you pay t...
