Re: Ricky Jay's Congress of Wonders

Nothing really surprising here. I was really depressed because I was not able to afford this event, but was pretty sure it would go that way. My real big regret is that most of his fantastic knowledge will probably be lost forever. That's a pity because he learned the craft precisely because some pe...

Re: Tony Giorgio Has Died

Very sad news. I immensely enjoyed his work in the first "Mission Impossible" tv series. His cameo appearances in movies were always very exciting for me, and I learned a lot reading his writings in Genii. He was obviously a true expert.

Re: Roberto Giobbi's Card College 1 & 2 Four DVD Set Now Available for Preorder

I have finished watching these dvds and I must say that they are absolutly awesome. The choice of the tricks is outstanding, the small details explained are pure gold, the execution of the routines is perfect, and even the explanations (often so boring) are quite enjoyable. I even liked the backgrou...

Re: Stage Drawing Duplication

I recommand also James Biss Mind Board. You can't go wrong with it because you will see the drawing whatever the lights conditions on stage - and it can't go wrong as can any electronic device.

Re: August Issue of Genii has been Mailed

This new Dai Vernon issue is - outstanding. This issue plus the "Revelation" book are the best things I read in a very long time. What is great in the "Reminiscences in Sleight of Hand with Dai Vernon" section in Genii is that Richard just wrote the exact words Vernon used in the...

Re: Berglas interview

I will simply say that: the Berglas issue in Genii was the VERY BEST magic magazine issue I ever read in my life. Period. I am so fed up with variations of variations, it was THRILLING to read such a great life, such great effects, and the number of things Mr. Berglas used in his life: hypnotism, me...
