Re: RS Loosing Steam?

I have been glad to have been part of this experiment. As has been mentioned by others some months were better than others but it has been a fun ride. I have kept each month in a binder with the props and it is fun to once in awhile go back and rediscover some of the ideas. A few idaes have beeen re...

Re: Suggestions for Toronto

Definitely pop into the Browser's Den, owner Jeff Pinsky is a great guy and store has a nice book selection. They are having their 39th Anniversay celebration this Sunday with a mini auction and other suprises, worth checking out if you are in the area.

Re: hank lee out of jail

Richard, as you point out there are no shortage of good conventions (yours is a prime example). For me the Conclaves were a relaxed fun weekend with a "homey" feel that I have not felt at other events. I also love Cape Cod so it waqs a great excuse to go. I am sure some of my feelings are ...

I do not condone what Hank did. However I do hope he has re-aligned his priorites and is able to move forward in life. He has a wife and two sons that deserve that. Many of my best magic memories involve Hank indirectly... time spent with friends at the Conclaves, flipping through the Magic Factory ...

Re: I Join Those Banned from The Magic Cafe

Some pretty broad generalizations by Brad on who frequents the Café. I probably spend more time on the Café than here. After 40 years in magic consider myself reasonably knowledgeable on many areas and am capable of separating the wheat from the chaff on the café, as I think many are. I have seen a ...

Thanks Richard. Look forward to reading about Mind Spinner. I love the concept of Impossible Pen but will not work for me and I have tried many variations. The pen will move to the edge when I do the "cutting" but will not move when I lift the tube.
