Thanks everybody. There are lots of magicians at the Café who consider themselves to be the sum total of their custom made props, and use a van full of those props for every show. There are others of us who don't, and I just wanted to recognize that second group. Those who do great show out of a small case, and every trick in their show is uniquely their own.

Wit matters... or is that "Whit?"

My wife thinks I'm three kinds of wit - half, nit and dim, so what do I know?

Food for thought is one of the few places online where one's brain will never starve, that, at least, is certain.

I almost don't feel worthy to post here amongst all these high profile posters. I just thought that I would say that I signed up to the magic Café only about a week ago but was reading it for about three weeks before that and in that time I have mainly been reading food for thought for its fantastic, interesting and thought provoking posts and also the friendliness of the people who tend to post here. Most of all I like reading this forum because of you guys. I would just like to say on behalf of we the new guys at the Café and the relatively new to magic that Al, Whit, Dave, Doug and Micheal, and the others but I could be here all day, thank-you very much for always sharing what seems to be an endless knowledge with all the patience and understanding that new guys like myself need and for being a constant inspiration to continue with magic. My hat is off to you guys keep up the good work I hope to be reading many more of your thoughts in the future.

The best tasting Scotch I ever had in my life was from a couple of bottles of Black and White that were brought over from Scotland without any kind of tax stamp on them. They were given to me by friends of mine who were on the crew of the London Statesman. They liked the music my band played.

They liked the verses I knew to the Ball o' Kerriemuir even better!

Quandry: I show from a very small case (13"x 4"), every trick in it is my own creation yet they are also custom made props...alas...I am groupless...but wait! That's a good thing. Smile

Doug, it's still not the props. It's always the person. It just happens that part of how you express yourself is there on display in the shape of those props you make.

I have been purposly avoiding using the names of those no brainer, selfworking, box type magic tricks that are so popular with kids magicians. You my friend in my opinion are just the kind of, thinking outside of the box fellow that has earned the right to be called MAGICIAN.

Is the place where I belong, because this is one of the few places at the Café where the art of magic can be discussed.


Well I'm glad you see some good in it. There's a reason why so many of the frequent posters can often be found here. Dropping off their '2 cents worth' yada yada...

I never saw it that way though. I've always seen this forum as a place I can get away from the magic chat (which can get heavy and feuding at times) and especially get away from magicians in general. And it's always a....oh wait, most responding in this forum are also magicians. Hmmm...I can't seem to delete this post! *delete* *delete* *delete*....ugh! never mind.

Lemme go see who's at the "New Arrivals" forum instead.

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said 'We are all just prisoners here, of our own device'
And in the master's chambers,
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can't kill the beast

Hotel California - The Eagles


Well hell! that explains much of it now. Yes it does.

Even when they spoke of one I'd never met, I liked 'em when they spoke of 'em while laughing.

May they laugh about most of us yes? Yes.....

Yeah, but putting a straitjacket on many of the folks here would be useless. Smile
