Re: Ford Kross - RIP

Ford Kross Got Me Kicked Out Of The PEA! How's that for a headline? Well, perhaps I should explain. I belonged to the PEA for maybe 4 or 5 years. A good friend of mine, who happened to be the National Prez of the S.A.M. was over one night. We were just screwing around with cards, coins, dental floss...

Re: Roberto Giobbi Card College DVDs Shipping this Week!

Isn't that "olde" Engish? In any case, text language of ANY language is very disturbing to me. Richard, we obviously disagree on a few things, we but agree on a whole lot more things. This is a big one. My kids are doing that text message thing. Drives me nuts, because they think it's righ...

Re: Roberto Giobbi Card College DVDs Shipping this Week!

The USPS does tend to have destruction in mind, but in this case, the packaging and packing just wasn't well thought-out. The packaging probably seemed clever to a number of people at the time, but other considerations should be made. Most individuals who use the Post Office for a lot of package mai...

Re: Roberto Giobbi Card College DVDs Shipping this Week!

Yes, the silly packaging results in a lot of scuffing and scratching, but the playback is fine. I'm just not sure why these folks keep trying to be clever with the packaging. It never works out well. Flynn, you know that this isn't an L&L release, right? Personally, I've never had a problem with...

Re: Roberto Giobbi Card College DVDs Shipping this Week!

Oh, one more thing..... no, two more things... Of course, I meant "lot" and not "lott." The other thing is the packaging of the Card College DVD set. Looks great, but it's totally useless. Not one single disc was attached to it's holding device by the time it got to me. The resul...

Re: Roberto Giobbi Card College DVDs Shipping this Week!

Guys- I haven't seen any comments yet. I've only had a chance to watch the first half-hour or so, and it seems very, very good. There are little touches that are well worth study. I'm not a card guy. Still, I am quite impressed by his teaching. I've learned a lott already. It seems like the issue fo...

Re: BROKEN WAND :: CARL BALLENTINE

Carl Ballentine was one of the greats of comedy magic. His act didn't change much over the past 60 years or so, because it didn't have to. I've seen him perform several times and had as many backstage conversations with him as those performances. That's because he was one of the sweetest guys you'll...

Re: Banned from Blackpool for my "Safety"

It appears that no one did say that the childrens' catagory was to be held at FISM, itself. I'm very curious about how the FISM name was hijacked for the competition, however. Is not FISM a protected name? Can I use it to promote a local elementary school talent show, for example?

Re: Banned from Blackpool for my "Safety"

Please take a look at this quote from The Gazette: >>>Derek Lever, chairman of the club, said: "He is not welcome in Blackpool and we will not be inviting him.<<< It would appear that there are two statements in one. 1) He is not welcome and 2) We will not be inviting him. Based on that, I don'...

Re: Banned from Blackpool for my "Safety"

Bravo, Mr. Kaufman! It was getting tiresome. I am obviously new to the forum, although I have been a subscriber to Genii for several years (and a reader for many more). I do have things to post, but I had to get started somewhere. This, sadly, was where I made my start. That "Lady D" comme...

Re: Banned from Blackpool for my "Safety"

I assure everyone that I was not trying to derail the thread. I was simply trying to figure out who Mark Lewis is. Now I know that he's who I thought. Sorry for any misunderstandings.

Re: Banned from Blackpool for my "Safety"

Yup, that's the guy on those tapes. The exampled posted is as good as it gets. The overall production quality was nonexistant, and the shows dragged. I don't recall what he was selling those sets for, but it was at the time, very expensive. Prices have jumped considerably on magic-related items sinc...

Re: Banned from Blackpool for my "Safety"

Isn't Mark Lewis the guy who put out that horrible set of VHS tapes on stage hypnosis several years ago? I bought them, and it was the worst purchase I have ever made in magic. One tape was a converstion in a bar (pub) and you could barely hear the conversation. Other tapes were of a "pro"...

Re: Bobby Baxter has Died

I've been here for years, but never had the great urge to post. I guess this is more out of nessesity than anything else. The Blackpool controversy is certainly interesting, but it has no effect on me. Ed (Professor Bobby Baxter) did. I have been doing magic professionally for about 30 years. I had ...
