Re: The Train by Harold Cataquet, August 2005

Good post, Bill! There certainly is a time and a place for magic. The amateur's problem is that in order to perform for people other than family and friends he almost must impose on his audience, whether directly (Wanna see a trick?), indirectly (a few flourishes in public), or through subterfuge (s...

Re: The Train by Harold Cataquet, August 2005

Bill, Thanks for your reply. I can't argue with you that the nonstop talker is at best obtuse and at worst selfish. I would like to contrast your example with what Mr. Cataquet wrote in his article. First, in your example the person imposes themselves by nonstop talking. In the article, our beloved ...

Re: The Train by Harold Cataquet, August 2005

Matt, thank you for your comments.

I do have to take one thing back though. That "newbie" magician was not better off because Harold switched train cars. He was worse off. I'm sure Harold has a wealth of knowledge he could've shared. If he had only taken the time.

Re: The Train by Harold Cataquet, August 2005

Richard, Thank you for the measured response to my emotional outburst. I'm honored to hear from the Grand Poobah himself! The man certainly may have been a jerk, I wasn't there. I can only go off of the article. In it Harold states "he can't summon up enough courage to ask, "Can I show you...

The Train by Harold Cataquet, August 2005

Congratulations Harold. Your last article "The Train" portrays you wonderfully as selfish, pompous and arrogant. Oh the horror you must have felt when that evil newbie magician wanted to show you a trick. Despite you telling him you weren't interested in seeing a trick, he kept showing the...

Re: Cleaning out the magic closet. Big Bargains!

Gino,

You haven't received a reply to your latest e-mail due to a family emergency in the Kruse family.

If Gary said he mailed it, I guarantee 100% that it has been mailed. Be at ease. You will receive the items you paid for.

Re: REGAL DEAL ENDING

I just wanted to brag about how smart I was to take advantage of this deal. Regal must have a platoon of Oompah Loompahs working for him because I received these books fast! Ordered Sunday night, and got them today. Now that I have autographed copies I have to go make up a story about how me and Dav...

Re: I don't come here to see what's on eBay

I agree with Gary. Thumbs down on all the advertising posts from people selling their stuff elsewhere.

Also, I don't believe stating a starting bid (not the actual cost) complies with "you MUST price any item you sell".
