    Penn and Teller Revealing Magic?

    When they had their contract to perform at the terminated, they were exposing effects that others were doing the week they were there. From what I understand they were told they could come back when they stopped. Neil Patrick Harris just wrapped up his time as president of the Academy and if...

    Penn and Teller Revealing Magic?

    No one is chastising them for teaching, key word there teaching, kids simple magic as a way to help build self confidence and as a rehab tool in a private setting. I have been a part of one of these groups. Who we chastise are those who publicly expose on youtube, an open public forum, the...

    Penn and Teller Revealing Magic?

    Me? No, but then again I only do original or things that are in hard to find books and magazines. Your average youtube exposure is not going to spend $400 on a book to tell people how it is done. Now has it happened to other? Yes there are more than a few threads about guys having people say I...

    Penn and Teller Revealing Magic?

    This makes you come off as as condescending. It invalidates any argument you were trying to make. If your performance is so poor you have to explain the effect for someone to get it, you need to look at what you are doing. Any exposure of the working of magic in an open public forum is...

    Penn and Teller Revealing Magic?

    No what you said was... That is what I wanted citation on. They fact that you think that those of us who are against exposure on youtube think that Science of Magic is exposure. Also not all methods are known to all magicians so not all magic is common knowledge to magicians. I have effects...

    Penn and Teller Revealing Magic?

    Your post is a little hard to read because I'm guessing English is not you native tongue. I'm guessing you mean public forum. The rest I'm not sure what you mean since again it is hard to read. Now... Magic methods are not common knowledge. They are a secret. Part of the working knowledge of...

    Penn and Teller Revealing Magic?

    No I'm not kidding. Part of paying your dues is doing the leg work. Someone who googles how a magician did something they just saw or someone who clicks on a video on youtube next the the effect they just saw is someone who wants to see how it works, not someone who wants to learn magic. That...

    Weekly Magic Failure?

    Yes. I should also say, because I forgot to earlier, I trade emails with Roland from time to time. He private blog, invite only, is great and you can really see how much he loves magic and how much work he puts into the art. Also for those who keep saying he is a nobody look at the Dec 2013...

    Must have Magic books

    . The only reason I left out now you see it, is you start to end up with a bit of over lap between that and the other three.

    Weekly Magic Failure?

    I know but how often does one get to use the line from Star Trek about Shakespeare is better in the original Klingon?

    Penn and Teller Revealing Magic?

    With the T11 and the E you have you sign up for it.it takes a bit of effort. It's not like youtube where you watch a Rciky Jay or Dai Vernon effect and then right next to it is five or six how to videos. That is just out there for anyone to click on. You can't google how to do a MCR routine and...
