Re: Blaine at New York Public Library, Monday

Here's my account of the talk which pretty much conforms to the one already posted with some different details. It's also more article-y in nature. As I say in the article, I thought the way that Blaine handled the protestors very much illustrated his strengths as a performer. http://www.herbsmagic....

Re: Hold On! Second Genii Convention Coming in Oct. 2015

I know that I'm being willfully idealistic about this, but it seems to me that the one place where conditions for viewing magic should be optimized is a magic convention. I think it's a significant problem that there are so few places these days where it is possible to view live magic directly. We a...

Re: Hold On! Second Genii Convention Coming in Oct. 2015

In response to the comments about video -- I guess this remark is about magic conventions in general, but I wish there was a way we didn't have to see the shows on video screens and that everyone could actually see what was happening on stage. To me a main point of going to conventions is to see liv...

It seems to me that the best thing would be to let go of the books at this point and start working a very small piece of what you have in mind on stage in front of an audience - I'm not sure if you actually have performed any of this material to a public audience yet, but if not, I think finding som...

Re: The Incredibly Stinky Burt Wonderstone?

This movie had the potential to be a lot better than it was. It could have been a very funny satire along the lines of This is Spinal Tap, but the material is just way too out of touch with the genre it is attempting to poke fun at. The computer-generated tricks--as one example--set the movie in the...
