Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - mixed reviews

Let me give you an example of two of the more recent rides at Disney parks, which are highly acclaimed, and have long lines: 1. Radiator Springs Racers at Carsland in Anaheim: 300 million bucks. 2.

Re: Derek DelGaudio to produce new Disney movie

100 Years? That has to be the Professor. I once read an interview with director Steven Soderbergh. He mentioned a film idea about following the central character around during the span of a century.

What alienates magicians from connecting with their audience more than anything else is an ego that needs to prove something as opposed to a magician that wishes to share something.
