The Digital Version of the March Issue of Genii is Now Live

Postby Richard Kaufman » February 14th, 2013, 4:45 pm

Remember that all subscribers to Genii get the digital issue FREE, with supplemental audio and video that add to your reading experience.

For those viewing on desktop and laptop computers, the digital version of the March issue of Genii is now live (those with tablets--iPads, Kindle Fire, and Android--and smartphones will need to wait until tomorrow for the videos to be converted).

This issue we introduce a new monthly feature to our digital edition: Face to Face with Genii, a series of interviews conducted by my long-time friend, journalist Matthew Field. The subjects are stars in our world, and we begin with the inimitable Tom Stone.

This issue contains a video of my trip to the Columbus Magi-Fest with performances by John Guastaferro, Doug Conn, Scott Robinson, and Tony Change; audio columns from Max Maven and Jon Racherbaumer; video of Imam; and three videos of Danny Orleans.

On our cover this issue is my old friend Danny Orleans. Danny has branched out widely, working as both a kids magician, a very successful corporate magician, and also doing a two-person mindreading act with his lovely wife Jan. Jon Racherbaumer takes a rather unconventional look at Danny Orleans.

Jeff Scanlon has been making impossible bottles in the style of the late Harry Eng for several years and were pleased to feature an interesting look at the origin of his interest in this odd pastime, as well as allowing you to peruse his creations. The interest in the stuffing of things that should not be in bottles into bottles puzzles me, but its very popular and people collect themI hope you find the article of interest.

Once doesnt usually think of Jim Steinmeyer and McDonalds Aces in the same moment, but this month in Conjuring Jim proves that you should, with a wonderful stand-up version of Hofzinsers classic routine

Tom unloads two Stones this month in Lodestonestwo fascinating effects. The second is a much easier version of MagoMigues Card in Glass which appeared in our issue (on DVD and digital form) last month.

Further exhuming treasures from the vault of Magic Man Examiner has led to a pretty damn swift card effect from Michael WeberI know it would have fooled me badly if Id seen him perform it before I read the explanation

Fans of Charles Schultzs Peanuts will find an unlikely ally in Max Maven this month, as he predicts youll smile when you read Lost Horizons

In Chamber of Secrets John Gaughan talks about an antique Ball Vase with no gimmickthink about that before you read it

A new column debuts this month on the intersection of modern art with magic themes, written by art-book publisher Volker Huber

Magicana consists of a remembrance of Scotty York by Jon Racherbaumer and then, through the auspices of Bill Wells, four extremely fine routines of Scottys which he wrote for a 2003 lecture that was seen by only a small group. The material is very fineworth this years subscription price, they could form the core of a working repertoire.

Jamy Ian Swiss remembers Imam, the great Indian magician who ran Mostly Magic in New York City for many years.

John Lovick reveals what he thinks of four books, Dustin Stinett slogged through a bunch of videos (but really likes the new thing by Carney), and David Regal reviews a bunch of Book Tests, among other fun things.

Fans of Charles Schulz will know how to spell his surname.

On my computer (iMac) where the digital issue normally appears - a small icon in the bottom left corner, there is just text saying iGenii March 2013. No image. When I click the link a new page opens with a small message -"Blocked Plug-In".

Quentin,

It's possible that you need to update the version of flash for your browser or disable the blocking if it's happening.

I am trying to read the MARCH 2013 issue online but when I zoom in to read the text it only lets me see the top half of the page. I don't seem to be able to scroll down properly.

Not sure if it is just me though?

Man - I really regret going the digital-only route. Richard - would it be possible to pay extra (plus a bit extra if need be to cover the extra PayPal costs) and jump my digital-only subscription back up to a print subscription?

If that is possible then I will email Margret when I next get paid and arrange something.

Cheers!

Joe

PS Sorry for asking - but I really hate the stress of dealing with digital content.

I have an iMac - core i5 (running 10.6.8)
- went to the March 2013 issue and had no problems - it was perfect. Video ran smoothly, images were crystal clear.

And I had just sent this email to the Chief Genii:

Dear Richard

Superb issue (Danny Orleans cover) - went on-line, watched vids, read thoroughly enjoyed. It practically jumped off the screen. Amazingly vivid images.

Love it

Thanks

Received in Logan, Utah. I couldn't hear the audio on the downloaded iPod version for some reason, anyone else have this problem or know a solution?

I updated Adobe Flasha and Adobe Reader - and it is working fine now. I am guessing that was the problem.

Looking forward to reading the issue.

March Genii received in Woodland Hills (i.e. West Valley of Los Angeles) today, 2/19. Another fine issue.

Hey, how about a special issue where David Acer selects his favorite tricks from the many he has written up for Magicana?

Since all the back issues are available online, I don't think that's necessary. We'll be moving forward by printing new routines every month.
