Hey everyone. For those of you who have been talking to me on AIM or through PMs on the forums... chances are you know that I am soon going be be making either a video or a lengthy essay talking about the different topics of commercialism in magic. I just wanted to know some things you would like to see in the video or essay. PLEASE NOTE!: This is not a video that will be attacking magic companies! I will be mentioning a few magic companies in this video, I will be saying some good and some bad things. However, this is not a biased video (or essay). I will be giving both sides to the arguments and saying my personal opinions. The moment this turns into that type of thread... I will request a moderator close it. Also, if you guys like this video and you feel that I opened your eyes a bit to some things you never realized before... I may do more than one of these videos or essays every once in a while. I was thinking if I did that, then some people could argue my points through comments or PMs. I would then talk about them in the next video. (I would not only take comments that I could talk back to. If there was a valid point made in a comment or PM that I felt was very good and I had nothing back to it... I would say so in the next video. Again... this is not biased.) Anyway, please post what you would like to see in this video or essay. I've been planning this for a while so I know pretty much what I want to say. However, I want to see what you want. Have an idea, but scared that you don't think it would be appropriate for the thread? Send me a PM or an IM on AIM. My screen name is in my signature. One more note... for those of you who know me on AIM.... you all know I pretty much never leave away messages or sign off, so for those who don't know me, if I don't respond, I'm not ignoring you. I'm just not there. So make your suggestion and I'll be making this video anytime from today to within the next 2 days. Thanks. -Doug PS: I think I'll make the video over the essay most likely.
