Neile,
Welcome to the board and I couldn't agree more.
Peace,
Parson

But then, as a whole, I like kids better than grown ups.

My biggest one is other magicians that look down on magicians who specialize in kid's magic.


Great point, but I will take it one step further.
How about magicians who look down on other magicians. Magician on Magician crime how sad Smile

Harry Murphy-
I know what you are saying about searching about an old topic.
But my point as a regular reader/limited poster on the Café is: I think it would be better to have another discussion about a topic rather than search old threads for a few reasons.
1.Not everybody has the time to read everythin on here
2.New people,
3.Communication I personally would rather interact than read old thoughts.

Having just turned 53 and only a year into my "magical" education I have a problem with wanting to learn too much too quickly. I am learning to become content with the enjoyment I derive from practice.

If you use the search function, you can find an old thread and post a response to it. Then you have the advantage of the previous thoughts plus any new ones. Much of the time when someone starts a new topic before checking to see what has already been written, the very same topic is just a few threads below it in the forum.

And if you don't think that "old thoughts" are relevant, maybe you need to do a bit more reading. Much of the ripped-off material that is floating to the top of the retail market wouldn't even exist if people knew what was really new and what wasn't.

Good point.

The rules that most people post keep you from reinventing the wheel or from getting stuck in the middle of magic that goes nowhere. If you don't have a fundamental knowledge of magic, you can't do it well. If you don't have a fundamental knowledge of structure, you can't build an act. These "rules" aren't as fundamental as the law of universal gravitation, but they are based on watching acts fall apart on stage.

Bill,
You wrote : "Much of the ripped-off material that is floating to the top of the retail market wouldn't even exist if people knew what was really new and what wasn't."

Once again, my friend, you nailed it.
How was Germany?
Glad the windy season is over. I was tired of worrying about you.
Peace,
Parson

Rule #12

There is no one "right" way to properly perform magic but there are thousands of way to do it wrong.
