Re: New Column Idea/Request

Richard, Thanks for the info. Since you mentioned having more material than you can fit into each issue, have you ever considered doing a Genii Annual? I know that several "non-magic" magazines that I get do that. The annual is usually about twice the size of a normal issue and generally c...

New Column Idea/Request

Hi Richard, I am currently re-reading The Magic of Alan Wakeling. One thing mentioned in the book is that Alan published a series of 12 (I think) short articles called (if I remember correctly) "The Traveler" in Genii around 1952. See what happens when I don't have the book in front of me ...

Re: Street Magic

Jim Cellini is a Master when it comes to street magic!!! Jim does the Slydini Silks and the TT Silk Vanish as a regular staple of his "Show". Jim's book, The Royal Touch, is fantastic!!! My understanding is that Jim is now working on a book on Slydini's Magic (Jim was a student of Slydini'...

Re: Denny's Ad on the September back cover

I think that there are several issues here that fall into several different categories: 1. Regarding the appropriateness of Denny's Ad - Some obviously find it funny, others find it offensive and the rest of us are somewhere in the middle. What I find interesting is we moan and grown about how MAGIC...

Re: What to do in Vegas???

Thanks for the added advice regarding the Blue Man Group...I'll make sure I don't wear any clothes I can't live without, etc. I haven't taken Mac King off of my list, it's just been recommended that I can fairly easily get a coupon to get into his show for free (with a one drink minimum), so I figur...

Re: What to do in Vegas???

Thanks for the info. I've gotten a ticket (great seats as far as I can tell) for Burton, S&R and Blue Man Group (pauncho section). I also have a room at the Orleans Sunday - Saturday (yes, I'm staying a few extra days). Anyone interested in talking about sharing a room? email me if you are. Best...

Re: Favorite Lectures You Have Attended

Favorite Lecture's...mmmm How about Tom Mullica - I laughed so hard my side ached for a month. How about Jay Sankey - Back when he had hair ;) I'd have to finish with Lennart Green. But I'm biased, he stayed at my house when he lectured here and it was one fantastic weekend. Interesting note - The t...

Re: Jonathan Townsend

Several months ago I spoke with Pressley Guitar and he was doing well. He lives down here in the Dallas area. I have a friend who gets together with him on a regular basis (lives close to him). I'll give my friend a call and ask for an update. I have one of Pressley's wands and it is one of my favor...

Re: Magic Magazine's convention

I will also be there. If you haven't registered/booked your room I suggest you do so asap. Magic Mag sent out an email to those registered stating that the rooms reserved for the convention/event are now gone. You may be able to get a room at regular rate? I look forward to seeing old friends and me...

Re: Kaufman's books stink!

I would highly recommend that you treat your books to remove the odors. Not only can the chemicals causing the odors lead to costly damage to your books they can also migrate to other items in the vicinity. For an answer to this problem I went straight to the professionals (book conservators)a few m...
