That Time of Year

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

With regard to the second link the young man in question seems to be doing very well with that seance thing. It must be costing someone a fortune to promote his event. I see it advertised all over the Toronto subway system. I happen to know it costs a LOT of money to advertise in that fashion. I can't see him being wealthy enough to do it so I assume someone is backing him.
