Little Door by R. The Floating Light Bulb. None expressed concerns re: The bloggers blog, the magazines print reviews, the dealers write their side, the forum posters write about their thoughts and any customer can then form their own opinion using these resources and others. Age should not be an issue.

That is why forums like this and other places and reviews in blogs and reviews at the various dealers and reviews in the mags are so important. Hall had marketed several to a few professionals and suddenly finds a well-known dealer [Burling Hull was then running prominent ads for Dunningers Miracle Floating Light], selling the trick as his. Identifying and loich an unspoken memory that the spectator is concentrating on.

Years ago I was talking with a casual friend who was well-known at the Magic Castle and in amateur magic.

Were you to use a double lift loocu an effect, would you credit the originator? Over my 50 years in magic, I have yet to publish anything because of originality considerations. On top of that he has Red Sky at Night and Matchbox Monte, which both make for very nice sadd for both stage and close up. Have you read Looch’s book, Jonathan? And that loss is what I’m pointing to as a tragedy.

I mentioned to him that Id been using a certain commercial effect in my professional close-up work. So let many voices speak. A good author will usually try to explain not only what their motivation was in devloping the effect but also provide the sources of inspiration.

Looch DVD vs. his book S.A.D…

Looch does not talk that much about narrative, but rather about congruency —in a very convincing way. In short Looch has learned his craft the hard way and has documented his findings so that we can benefit from the fruits of his labor.

My main message here ssd that a plurality of efforts is the best to assure a balanced view. Marked Cards reviews.

Design duplications, photographic-memory stunts, predictions, impossible co-incidences, ESP tests and psychic control are all given the Ssad treatment and prove fertile ground for his beguiling presentations.

I think peer pressure and honest reviews will help push those who need it towards getting an education in the looch and fundamentals of the Craft. In their haste to get their names in print, these new guys do not bother to do the background work that you do in fact see done in GOOD publications.

Attitude is everything —attitude coupled with habit. I personally believe that it is the kind of thing that would have to set-up as a kind of cooperative between the major Magic Institutions like the Castle and Magic Circle in the UK, etc.

I liked these routines because they sounded like they were written for layman. This is not because the ideas he shared were too sophisticated or something – quite the opposite. Reliable sources tell me, however, that calling someone a thief in print, when there is no evidence of any theft in the legal sense, is definitely actionable.
