Incurable Collector

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Incurable Collector

Postby Bill Mullins » August 31st, 2003, 1:38 pm

Home and Garden TV has a show called The Incurable Collector, hosted by John Larroquette. Yesterday's episode included a segment on the New England Magic Collector's Association, and their most recent Yankee Gathering. Several Genii Forum regulars, and others familiar to the community were obivious:

Richard Kaufman doing a very pretty color change
John Gaughan bidding for something
Max Maven sagely observing it all
I think I also spotted Gene Matsura, and Phil Wilmarth in the crowd.

This show is in "heavy rotation", it will be rerun soon.

Not the most recent; it was six years ago...

Speaking of folks on TV, my wife was watching the Food Channel when I wandered in and they were discussing the best milk shakes with Ormond McGill (sp?) the hypno guru. Seems Ormond hits a diner in Palo Alto California four times a week for the shakes.

That explains the youthful glow, then . . .
