Although Chris's horn tooting is, shall we say, consistant, I must say in a thread about Good Buys his post is both appropriate and appreciated. Give the guy a break, wouldja? He is, after all, almost singlehandedly creating a new medium for conveying our beloved art.
You could be right...it may fit in this thread (even though the cost works out to be more than the Dover editions, something he conveniently didn't mention) I'd probably less annoyed about it being here if I didn't see it everywhere else. I bite my tongue (or fingers...whatever) everytime I see one of his posts, but I can't stand it anymore, and frankly, I'm surprised he's allowed to continually do it. New medium or not, he should have the same respect for us that other dealers do. If Louis Falanga came in here and made a post everytime someone mentioned Michael Ammar ("We've got all of his videos for only $30! On DVD, too! -L&L Publishing, preserving Michael Ammar doing other people's tricks one video at a time"), are you telling me you wouldn't get annoyed? Or, say, the folks at MagicSmith, Denny's, or any of the countless other online dealers? Personally, I don't see the need to a plug EVERY single time a slight mention is made!
Give him a break? No, I think he should give US a break.
But that's just my opinion...
PS - I'm sorry if I'm coming off harshly...this just annoys the heck out of me.
