It's just a mean-spirited personal attack and Swiss's argument would be stronger without it. Hype is hype, and hype will be with us forever. So that's news?!? Lemme see, folding quarters, nickels to dimes, ball and vase, Ickle Pickle Nickel, self working card tricks, etc... And what was so special about these beginner tricks? Just go through the motions and do them. It was much later that the power of patter and presentation was discovered. The same holds true for "Street Magic" and the effects marketed as such. It really depends on what you do with them. Swiss does a fine job of breaking down the taxonomy of magic genres. However, those who deny that "Street Magic" exists are just being silly. Perception is reality. Who among us does not understand that? Is it not part of the basis of our craft? If the spec does not perceive and believe the reality we create for them, there is no magic. Looks like Blaine, Brad, etal have done a good job at re-creating that reality, whether for good or for evil, and they have built very sucessful businesses upon it. [/quote]
