Topic: Relatively New to the Café and Magic
Message: Posted by: doctor_joe (Sep 14, 2007 12:25AM)

My name is Joe Finkler and I am just a hobbyist magician living and working in Vancouver. My foray to magic came late in life, but it always amazed me as a kid and it still does now. I really only perform magic for some gatherings of friends and family. I confess that I love to read the books and play around with the props more than I do practising. The heap of packet tricks and gadgets on my shelves is a testament to my addiction to magic.

Now, I have to work on the basic sleights and performance techniques. My goal is develop a small repertoire of routines that I can perform flawlessly and amaze my audience.

Recently, I've made a flurry of posts on the Café Forums about a few tricks and routines that intrigue me and several magicians have been quite gracious and candid with their replies. However, there is one trick that I need help wit (Obie O'brian's Passing The Buck), but I can't seem to get any responses to my post. This may be because I have not established a reputation as genuine magician or it may be that my question violates a code. I guess I will figure this out in time.

Anyway, this is a great website to interact with magicians.
