Does it REALLY matter where exactly a book came from? Is it REALLY a huge deal that I didn't know that Annemann didn't publish the book?
Theodore Annemann wrote a book called "Practical Mental Magic" full of mentalism.
You made a claim that was incorrect. The last time you inquired about learning mentalism, you were given sources to look up. I have not seen proof that you went to any of them, nor have I seen any proof that you've taken up a serious study of the history of either magic or mentalism.
You claim to be so passionate about the craft, yet you suck at taking criticism and have shown little to no academic interest in our history. What am I supposed to do kid? I can only be nice to you so many times before I say enough is enough.
Also, who said I was demanding to be referred to as a mentalist?
Your post suggested you have a problem with being told that your card trick was mental magic and not actual mentalism. A complaint I've heard a million times before. And given the stand-offish attitude I'd seen from you before, I had no reason to believe differently.
I damn sure don't want to ONLY do mentalism. And why is it a problem that I'm "all over the place"? I enjoy MANY different types of magic and mind reading.
Because right now you sound like every other hack out there who spreads themselves too thin. Marketing 101: when you try to please everybody, you please nobody.
