Random Spittle


Not long enough for an article:

1. That sound you hear when you go to the Cafe’ is death rattles from Mein Brooks’ attempt to create blogs within the confines of his domain.

Didn’t work Stevie! It was a bad idea from day one. Maybe you can save the posts to enter in MCJ’s next “most boring post” contest. I’m not sure they’ll win, but they will certainly be able competitors for the title.

2. I’ve been looking at Richard Osterlind’s Mind Mysteries Too Volumes 5, 6 & 7. My first reaction is – he should have stopped at 4. As I’ve said before, the true value of a book or DVD can only be determined after it has aged a while. I’m willing to withhold final judgment.

The Question and Answer Act, which is touted as being “worth the price of the whole series” is shamefully transparent. I’m a huge fan of the first 4 volumes of this series. I thought they had more good magic than any other L&L set. Maybe I’m getting jaded, but nothing in this series really excited me. Time will tell.

3. Richard Kaufman is killing the Genii forum by being such an irascible dick to participants. He’s adopted Brooks’ mantra of it’s my forum and if you don’t like it FUCK OFF! Too bad, it was the best. New messages have nearly dried up except for the incestuous babble among the insiders. Maybe he should have kept it closed after he unceremoniously shut it down in a tizzy recently.

4. I’ve been thumbing through Lorayne: The Classic Collection recently. This is a rewrite and revision of Harry’s first 3 books and The Epitome Location. Many of us cut our teeth on CUCM and thumbing through it brought back some pleasant memories. None of them about Harry though, who has become a condescending, egotistical, industrial grade prick.

5. Favorite quote seen recently: Freedom of the press is limited to those who own one.

6. If you get a chance to see Bill Goldman lecture, it’s worth the cost. It’s a little disorganized, but you’ll get a lot of tips on trade show magic and the types of tricks that work.

Take care………

Another thing I found funny:

(On September 17, 1994, Alabama’s Heather Whitestone was selected as Miss America 1995.) Question: If you could live forever, would you and why?

live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever,

which is why I would not live forever,”
