What are my fellow magician's choices?
Magic is not about "buying tricks"... it's more than a commercial thing. It is about what YOU do with what is between your hands. So I am afraid that your question / reflexion is a little bit stupid, imho.
WOW.."STUPID"? Interesting choice of words, for asking a simple question. I am well aware that magic is not about "buying tricks", (I've been doing magic since I was 12 years old, I'm 34 now, you do the math). But since you bring it up. How else are we supposed to learn about, then purchase the latest magic? Are we supposed to NOT ask what is the latest and greatest available on the shelves at our local magic dealer? Or perhaps we should tell our local magic shop that selling magic is "STUPID" and its not about "buying tricks", because 'friboudi' thinks its "STUPID", and its more than a commercial thing. So how about we get magic tricks for free instead? Yeah...I didn't think so.
How about this instead...you stop scrutinizing me and my simple straight forward question, and simply pitch in you're vote for you're favorite tricks. No need to pick apart my question with a fine tooth comb, or lecture me on what YOU think my view of magic is. Which BTW is non of you're business, I can choose what kind of magic I enjoy and how I enjoy it, how ever I please. You or anyone else will NOT tell me otherwise. Just because you were having a bad day, don't take it out on me man. Seriously, this isn't the forum for calling anyone "STUPID". Especially for asking a basic question on a site it was specifically designed for, period. Choose you're words wisely next time, or don't say anything at all. Thank you.
Till the next time magic fiends...
