Re: No Comments About MAGIC Live?

I want some of my money back. The camera work and video direction were terrible, to start: for some reason the cameraman and director thought it was important to see Simon Aronson's face and not his hands while he performed a card trick for 800 people. Later in the perfomance the director decided to...

Try turning the "bottom" coin around, that might cause a tail to be at the right spot and you might to be able to flip the coin as advertised.

There are "Pound" signs in front of the prices, did you mean to put "$" there instead?

That could explain the reason there is only 1 bid for 1 item among all of these excellent books.
