Re: I Join Those Banned from The Magic Cafe

Temporarily banning Richard based on the Busby thread, if that is the case , is a remarkably inappropriate action. I say this as a message board administrator myself. While RK did call Busby a crook, he backed up his statements and he used no profanity, not a single improper word. However, there wer...

Re: NEW BOSTON BOX ROUTINES

Just curious ... Why is the Boston Box called the "Boston" Box? It just occurred to me that I don't know. Might I presume a Boston magician created this variation of the Okito Box?

Re: Derek DelGaudio to produce new Disney movie

Richard, the post by Tom Moore is pretty much spot on. I asked one of my Hollywood contacts this morning if he had any specifics on this deal. He did not, but he made the same general comments as did Mr. Moore. Producer credits are frequently negotiated whether or not the person involved is actually...

Re: Derek DelGaudio to produce new Disney movie

He is not "the" producer, but one of many. Since he's never produced any films before, it's puzzling why he's been named a producer rather than the magic consultant. Apparently the idea for the movie was his, or in their words, he "incubated the project." How much actual "p...
