Re: Congrats to Will Houstoun!

We are lucky to have someone like Will. The rigor that his thesis will have gone through for a doctorate will have been thorough. It will definitely add to the literature by some margin. I'm excited by that and more to follow. Magic is truly a great community. Speaking of community I am hoping more ...

Re: NPH exposes thin sawing

This illusion is one of my favourites. I agree with the posters above and have only one thing to add to the conversation regarding NPH's possible innocence. As someone on the show who is only a guest. Is it possible he was unaware of exposure? Did he know how the illusion was to be portrayed? Did he...

Re: Derren Brown - Penguin Live - Jan 4, 2015

Enigma finale was one of the best live magical experiences I have ever had. And Derren is correct people expect an amazing triple climax. I haven't been disappointed by any of his shows.

Re: On stage in Dan Sperry's Pocket!

Was a lovely surprise yesterday to see the MNW is back. Listened twice already since last night - once last night and once to and from my day job. Has to be one of the best magic things available and listened to the Sol Stone interview as well. What an interesting man and what a life. Listening to t...

I download the new app yesterday. I enjoy the new look. What I like most about it it makes the most of the ipads zooming function. This is something which frustrated me in the past and is a comfort to my middle aged eyes. Thanks.

You can spend 10 000 hours of practice and learn the sleight incorrectly. The practice needs to be focused and mindful at first until it becomes automatic. S...
