Re: If You Want to Compete at FISM in 2015, Please Read This

Richard Kaufman wrote:Intérieure pont VENISE 4 563 €

Q - How much is a cab for one person ?
A - It is ADORA Travel which sells cabins. But their price would be increased by 80 % for those occupied by one person.


Holy shizer.... €230 + €563 + 80% of €563 = a whole shed load of money and a bloody expensive convention.

Re: Magic for a 14 YO?

The very best book in my opinion for a young guy starting out in the magic world is Under Over by Josh. It is free from Vanishing Inc. I have thanked Josh personally many times for writing this.

Re: Aldo Colombini Suffers Catastrophic Stroke

As if the last few years have not been tough enough on Rachel and Aldo. Last year, at a convention in Belfast, Northern Ireland both Aldo and Rachel were so full of love life and spirit. It was pretty infectious. How very very sad that this should happen now. Sometimes you feel as is life is a basta...

Re: New U.K. TV Series with Benjamin Earl

As far as I am aware those outside the Uk (like I am in Dublin) can watch these on 4OD (Channel 4 On Demand)

I know it certainly worked for me when I viewed some of Derren's shows after the fact. http://www.channel4.com/programmes/derr ... ecials/4od

Re: Derren Brown - Infamous - A Review

I don't think it is strange at all.

Surely Derren and/or his producers wish for the show, given the type of show it is, to remain a surprise for audiences is honourable.

It is not like the show is going to be crap and they area afraid word of that will get out.

I do know Derren, in his previous shows, asks the audience not to tip the content online. I imagine he probably does the same this time....

Re: NEW FORUM: Post your problems/issues here

Perhaps it is just because it is all new and I cannot see it but the feature of having "new posts since last visit: was something I liked and used.

Is it a feature here I am missing somehow?
