Re: The Real Secrets Team Returns with Something New

No one asked me to post it. We have many Real Secrets members who read The Genii Forum, and sometimes emails go astray or end up in the junk mail folder. That's why I post the information here. And RS members can also discuss it here. We allowed Real Secrets to have a pizza party during the dinner ...

Re: Impressions of IBM/SAM 2014

Relative to the temperature of the hotel, I found it comfortable. I did too. Of course, I was expecting the temperatures/humidity we had on Sunday and Monday, which are apparently the norm for summertime in St. Louis.

Re: A Note from Stereo about his Tenyo Blog

Given that, sadly, this appears to be standard operating procedure for the entities behind the Magic Cafe, did anyone screengrab the post so those of us who were too late can read what he had to say?

Re: Magicians stealing

Which seems crazy, but not quite as crazy as selling a DVD of effects and telling you (AFTER you've purchased it) that you are not allowed to perform the material. And exactly that did happen last year. I hadn't heard about that one. What was the DVD in question? PM is fine if you don't want to ann...
