Yes...Mark is curious too. Mark wonders why a thread starts out YELLING when one is just trying to make a point? Mark thinks an honest review about something might go a LOT further and generate more interest.

Hmmm...???


Will thinks that could work, anyone able to write such a review?
A Trick? Well yes there are quite a few "tricks" I can do, but alas there are women and children present. Find me later.

As Danny thinks levitations are not that entertaining in the first place he can't write one.

But Danny thinks it is a good idea.

Yes, Will speaks like this all the time during performance, mostly to just to make people stare at him strangely.

Don't make Michael do The Jimmy from Seinfeld. Too late.
"Michael is getting upset!"

"Why would Michael write a review for the Café?"
Michael was not part of the 100 A.G.L. orders.

Will is on to something big and Michael would gladly pre-order Will's "Talking in the 3rd with your Magic."

Michael waits, and waits for a review.

The actual review thread for the Anti-Grav Levitation aka AGL was totally deleted a few days ago Smile There were so many angry upset customers who were posting about it, I think you're the 2nd person who shared they liked it magicman02 Smile It would help if you spoke more about it in your review so you could share your thoughts about it with us. Have you tried taking it out to the streets yet?

Thanks,
ning

Aaron has decided to join in on the third-person talk.

Aaron feels that levitations are very much an "AS SEEN ON TV" kind of magic. He also feels that it might be wrong to try and bank on another person's popularity to try and get your own. It's like when Aaron tries to hang out with the cool kids. The cool kids never notice him and Aaron is always trying to be just like them. However, instead of appearing cool, Aaron appears insecure and unconfident in himself. He never gets to show people what he is REALLY about, which people will actually like him for. If they knew the real Aaron, they would come and hang out with him more.

In the same way, if all Aaron did was do magic that others performed on tv, his own style would not come out and all he would be is a Blaine wanna-be, as opposed to a magician. If all he did was popular magic, then there would be no gigs. Why go live when you can see it on TV

Scott was one of the first 100 to get the AGL, and he was sorely disappointed. The concept may be sound, but the materials provided and instructional material was certainly lacking. Scott wouldn't mind folks making even a 75% profit from a good idea, but this one cost them about $5 to send out the door, and out of all the posts Scott's seen here, only 3 seem to have been satisfied with it.

Next time Scott will wait to see a review here before he plunks down $100 for a yet-unseen effect.

3rd person out....

It's official, Will has given up on levitation completely, because of the exceedingly high prices of said effects, and the fact that Will is only a musician and a magician, meaning Will is kind of broke all the time !

Will also agrees that the satisfaction percentage is not very good, meaning that this is a dud.

But that's just Will's opinion, you don't have to hold him to it.

Eric is surprised that, other than this thread and the numerous 'for sale' threads, this topic has died on the Café.
Eric read about it when it was just beginning to brew. Then Eric had work and was unable to follow all of the posts for many days. Eric was surprised when he came back and heard that all the threads had been deleted.

Eric would make a great juror if there were a trial held for the Anti-Grav Levitation.

Eric doesn't know what happened and can't find out since all the evidence has been deleted by the Café.

Eric would appreciate a "readers digest" summary of what happened and why all the threads were deleted.

Eric patiently waits....

Oh NO! It's the dreaded Julius Caesar's "Talk about yourself in the third person" plague. I think I'm coming down with it.

John purchased this effect which a couple of Café members have dubbed "the levitation that shall not be named." John remembers reading the threads with many angry consumers. John thought there would be a lynching. John felt really dumb when his AGL arrived in the mail. John would rather forget about this and John thinks that some others preferred not to see so much concentrated hate in one thread. John laughs when he sees this part of the ad copy at HP -- "Package includes gimmick and manuscript." John does not think that a gimmick was included. John thinks that if someone does send you water, chicken broth, chicken, and noodles in a box that it is not the same as having someone send you chicken soup.

So if it is a piece of crap - can you let others in on what it is - privately, of course Smile
