Oh No

Franz called and had to cancel, seems he had an appointment with his lawyer in CA. that he overlooked. He wanted to come Friday or Saturday but the stage is booked solid those days with other magic events. We're trying to set something up for Wednesday but it is at best doubtful.

David's lecture is scheduled to go on as planned.

Franz is back on, he moved his lawyer appointment and will be on Thursday after David Seebach.

My apologies for any confusion.

Just a quick note from my hotel in Coldwater .. David's lecture was awesome! After 90 minutes of some of the most insightful information every revealed on illusions, David received a standing ovation. It was well deserved .. and nearly sold-out the first run of his book "So You Want to Be an Illusionist."

If you weren't there .. you really missed out. I don't think anyone left without an appreciation to all the hard work involved for not only the magician but the box-jumper as well. Anyone there will know exactly what I'm talking about.

There are a few remaining copies that are available from Abbott's directly.

Like I said .. you should have been there ..

I noticed in his book that he mentions he no longer has his original notes on the Subject:Illusion articles and unless Abbotts has them they would be lost forever. Fortunately both Tops and New Tops are digitalized (and available for purchase) so some cold Feb day when I am snowed in I will convert them to html and add them to the Newest Tops as a classic issue.

The free issue of Tops for the show went over well, surprised how many people did not know about Tops magazine. I should have put a flyer in each one about the newest tops.

I thought the lecture was awesome, unfortunately I had to leave early from the Franz Harary lecture to make the graveyard tour.

So much to do, so little time

I do not think Video was done. It was an incredible lecture.

I have suggested to David that he continue to develop this lecture for a dvd in two phases. First would be the illusions that are suit to one or two people. Second would be the more complicated illusions requiring more staging and assistants.

David talked concisely and clearing for over 90 minutes. He could have went another 90 minutes without losing a person in the auditorium. The pros and cons of different illusions were discussed, staging ideas, costuming, etc. There was so much information that I doubt if any could fully adsorb everything he had to say.

Get the book. It is a great starting point but if you ever get the chance to see the lecture; do it.

We tried videotaping but would have had to interfere with the lecture and stopped. David used the whole stage and the only way it would have worked was if we moved around with him.

Wow! What a great response to my lecture last week. The book just flew afterwards as it seemed everyone wanted a copy. If you'd like one just order it from Abbott's or buy one from Duane Laflin or contact me for a copy that I'll send immediately by Priority Mail ($25 + $5 shipping). I accept cash, checks,m oney orders and, of course, PayPal.
