Re: Ricky Jay Death

I first watched Ricky Jay’s “Deceptive Practice” in Austin when he presented it at the Alamo Drafthouse in 2013. I just watched it again and had forgotten how good it was.

Re: 'I never saw a U-Haul following a hearse."

Not having the resources of a Copperfield or an Albo, I wonder sometimes if I shouldn’t sell my current collection and purchase one item at a time. I could then, after reading the book or studying the apparatus, take a photo and add it to an album and consider that my collection. It would enable me ...

Novelty doesn’t necessarily equal quality. Hip Hop music is the most popular genre today. I will continue to enjoy Country, Rock and Sinatra. (No offense to the Hip Hop fans, to each his or her own). Also cognitive choice doesn’t equal fear. Gender defined pronouns simply impart more information. Oh...

Gotta go with Bill on this one. Diction is the spice of communication.

You never appreciate something when it is close. I lived 2 miles from the Island when it was open and never made it there. If it reopens, I will drive 3 hours to visit it.
