Hey magicians.

I'm Kevin Ferguson. I live in San Francisco and haven't really participated in forums before this but now that I'm taking performing more seriously I figure I might as well begin. Tons of good help out there to be had, I'm sure!

I perform stage mentalism, you can see my website here: http://www.mindofkevin.com

Hope you're all well!

Welcome mindofkevin,

If I could give some advice to someone new to fora I'd say:

Be polite, re-read and spell check everything before posting.

Ignore jerks till they become bullies.

Be prepared to meet some generous and knowledgeable folks.

Put a timer on your sessions at first. This place is addictive.

Have fun!

-Mary Mowder

Thanks Mary!

Appreciate the advice. I'll definitely make sure I'm understandable.

Nice web site!

You've received the best possible initial greeting from Mary as you can see - she greeted me warmly (as she does just about everyone here!) many years ahgo and now I am somewhat addicted to this Café lol.

You will find much to absorb here - my fave/best areas here for mentalists are:

Penny for your thoughts

Mentally Speaking

and ...Inner Thoughts (available onnce you get to 50+ posts)

One of the most prolific and kindest contributors here is Bob Cassidy (among others). You will find many other notables here too, some using not their real names for obvious reasons.

I might suggest you consider attending MINDVENTION next year in Las Vegas - I went abot a month ago and it was simply superb - 150 or so of the best performers in the world, all gathering to share ideas and fun.

Enjoy the Café Kevin :)

Thanks Brett!

Definitely looking forward to Inner Thoughts. Will try to get to 50 posts asap. I've heard of MINDVENTION, perhaps I'll look into attending.

I'm generally not a convention guy - but the intimacy and great sessions here with many top minds made it exceptional and highly recommended. Much gets discussed at jacks bar in the hotel late night. It's a who's who of performers one on one.
