You don't respond very well to questions. That's ok though.
You're the one that moved from shooting to murder. I just wanted to inflict pain, you're the one who's extending my comments to murder. I never did trust you stage guys.
Adjudging someone as gentleman or scholar is not very easy from a post. In my world the gentlemen are comprised of Commisionned Officers in the U.S. Navy. I was enlisted scum, so you're right on that note.
Scholar . . . that's open to interpretation. I've been to school, this time through I might finish the third grade.
Relax oh smokey and misty one. Don't get your stage magician support hose in a twist. Tell us what effects in your show you think are especially effective and why. Put some positive energy into this discussion. Since you're willing to open a post with all negative comments and you obviously don't like them when pointed in your general direction. Go for the good. See the light. Strike a positive note here.
Oh, and cough up your name!
Kent F. Gunn
F stands for . . . well you know.
Ok, now you have me laughing.. you certainly are a character Kent! I am really amused by your postings. Congrads.. This has become fun.
Hmmm lets see who is doing the personally attacking with calling me scum. Like I said, Classy. Also, I was unaware you only intended to maim people. Very classy and civilized. (sarcasm bud)
Who I am is irrelevant. I will not give my name to do the fact that I may be judged in future competitions by the very same people who disagree with me on my posts on this board. That may unfairly influence judging decisions. What is important is that I have an opinion that Id like to express in a free country. Surly Mr. Gunn of all people would understand this.
I couldnt understand what you meant about your 3rd grade comment..
Liked effects: Since we are dealing with cards a little, I like & do: Easy Ace Estimation -Paul Gordons, a variation on Allan Ackermans card at any number, memorized deck estimation techniques, Biddle trick, Out of This World, to name a few.
Stage: I create a lot of my manip act, but along that line you may know of: card manip, Windshear, Hospitality, but like I said, I do create most of my manip act, so its not easy to explain.
( again, this Thread is about hearing from others about what they were tired of seeing performed, & why.)
Ps. I assume F stands for fantastic guy? That would be my guess.. If the middle initial was C it would have to stand for Classy!
