Actually, Dee said it.... And so did a lot of other famous magicians. Really RICH magicians.Nice one that is kinda funny.
No one ever said that. But if you think that it does not affect us creators you are horribly misinformed.
Nice way to talk with your current and future customers, who actually pay for your stuff. [sarcasm] That will not make mi torrent [/sarcasm]And really? Your going to take the gangsta approach with me?
What? huh? didn't think so.
Wow wow wow, easy there justin. You made a lot of assumptions, and saw a lot of things that aren't there. I never showed disrespect to the magic ART, I showed disrespect to the magicians who are crying about torrents and how they will be poor because of it. And then, you see them in their expensive houses, with their insane collection of most expensive items and cards and cars and all that. All I said was that torrents will not make you poor nor hungry. Do they affect you? Yes. Do they affect you THAT MUCH? No.Now here is my real problem with you toby. Your post shows an incredible amount of disrespect for magic as an ART and the creators who create it...the ARTIST themselves. Your response as a fellow magician should not be "well does it hurt you no, then shut up" which is really what you said to me but more in an intimidating way, it should be "lets work together on fixing or find a way to fix this problem" If your going to stay in this art and pursue it then please respect magic and its creators that bust their asses trying to bring you solid, practical, memorable magic. Or get out and find something else to waste your time.
You said that you made a lot of DVDs and notes, and that almost all of it was torrented? Well, you have to be really stupid to continue to release products, if the first one that you did, made you less money than you spend. But since you have a lot of products, I guess you are making good money out from it.
And listen to what other have said. Torrent actually helped your popularity and popularity of magic also. And no, you would not sell those 25000 DVDs that they downloaded through torrents.
