Ok, Mr Bishop, i never insulted you and i' has never said anything bad about you or your techniques.

I emailed you cause i was interested in your stuff.

I just wanted to learn the aplications of some of your techniques, and that's all.

Sorry if i disturbed you, that wasn't my goal, i just wanted to learn from a person i admired.

Even though i keep on the quest to buy it from someone that wants to help me.

Thank you for your time to write on your blog about this.

Good luck.
Chris Lane

I'm curious: if your dad added your method of stacking four aces to his act, why don't you use the shuffle this way in your performances?

As an aside - there has been some discussion as to whether it was the shuffle or the trick that Vernon intended to be called Triumph. Your post sheds valuable light on this debate: the Triumph Stars of Magic manuscript came out in 1946, and referred to "an exquisite card miracle entitled "Triumph"; but your post makes it clear it wasn't until around 20 years later that your dad told you that it was the shuffle, not the trick, that was called Triumph.
As has been pointed out before; in interview, Vernon has been explicit that it was the effect, not the shuffle, which he named Triumph.
I guess after 20 years maybe your dad misremembered.

But - most importantly; I'm sorry to hear you went into a depression. This is a debilitating illness which still does not receive the recognition it deserves. (In part, because some people misuse the term - talking about 'depression' when they mean sadness or unhappiness). I hope you are aware of the different treatments currently available for this horrible problem.

I do use the shuffle my dads way in my performances. However I did not show my dads way of doing the shuffle on the video or in the book. However I did spend a little time with my dads way of doing the triumph shuffle on one of the DVD's.

I hope this answers your question.

mrgoat: while there is a view among many magicians that Glenn's multiple shuffle to cull the four aces is unworkable in real life cheating, and unnecessarily tedious in magic demonstrations; since he has told us he has mental problems, maybe he should be cut some slack?

On Mr. Bishop's blog he writes: " I am not and never wanted to be one of those book writing magicians that doesn't perform shows. But writes books for magicians and sells them at conventions."

I guess that means me, eh?

Just FYI...

The only book I ever wrote and sold at a magic convention was the Life and times of Billy Bishop. Published by David Charvet.

The rest of the books I wrote...

Shellgame.
Glenn Bishops ace cutting and block transfer triumphs.
Early Bishop.

Etc...

Were never sold at magic conventions by me and to my knowledge.
And I never sold any DVD's at any magic convention. However I did sell my first DVD one time at a single lecture I did at the Magic Castle.

I would suggest both Richard Kaufman, and El Mystico and their sidekick the goat to stop writing BS about me. When they don't know me and have never met me.

I guess that means me, eh?

El Mystico, as I have read many show business autobiography's many many show business people deal with depression. I would not say I have any kind of mental illiness although it has been suggested and said as an insult toward me by quit a few magicians that hate me.

I guess that is another - I guess that means me, eh?

Now I have answered your questions about as far as I am going to at this time - my suggestion to you all is to LEAVE ME ALONE!

Nah. He doesn't have depression. He just misused the term to mean he was peed off people were laughing at him.

Wow.

the insensitive bullying and level of immaturity is astounding. Honestly, makes me ill. I don't know how you get to the point where cruelty is so cavalierly and thoughtlessly dispensed.

I'm quite sure some of you won't be satisfied until someone has done irrevocable damage to themselves. I guess there really are people who go out of their way to pluck the wings off flies for their own amusement and to bolster their self esteem.

It is all quite creepy.
