I noticed Dick Oslund starting posting in December. The mre I see his post I just wonder, is this Mark Lewis under another name? Just little things bring this question. Every post he has to tell us how long he has been performing and how good he is. That is what Mark did all the time. I could be very wrong but thought I'd let you know what I think

Mark Lewis was the Chef Special back in May, 20111.


That's a big honor. Why would he want 2 ID's?

Mark frequently posts places under other names...so I have heard (often).

Dick Oslund doesn't post with the same tone that Mark Lewis has. ML writes in a certain way, and shares certain stories, and shares certain opinions, under his many aliases over the years. I'm convinced that they are not the same person.

Wow! Why the need to post under more than one username? Creepy.... Some people have way too much time on their hands if they're managing multiple online identities.

When you are banned, but wish to post anyway (whatever the reason), that's the only way.

Hoodrat, I don't believe it is anything nearly as complicated as that - nothing that requires managing or maintaining.

Here's an interesting one:


It's such a big thumb in the eye.....

Dick Oslund is a well known magician who has been known to many of us for decades. He is also one of the most helpful guys around.

Frankly I'm shocked to see that anyone would question his identity or sincerity.

Erm...I'm sure that if Paddy had known who Dick Oslund was, he wouldn't be questioning his identity or sincerity. :)

I agree. I think this thread should be deleted. There is no reason why such a respected performer as Dick should have to read this sort of thing. He has paid his dues over a lifetime of performing and has offered nothing but help and encouragement to newcomers here. And, as a respected elder in our craft, he is justly entitled to be proud of how long he's been performing and of the expertise he's gained and so generously shared and continues to share.

I hate to admit it but I personally know Dick Osland. LOL

Dick is an Old Timer in the business and we are lucky to have the benefit of his experience.

You don't have to agree with him but he speaks from his own experience and he's got a lot of it.

His post are nothing like Mark whats his name.
