Not sure if this has been posted here or not, but here he is in front of "humanists, skeptics and freethinkers" (CFI)...Not magicians. Anywho just more youtube exposure.

He's exposing the MOABT near the end.

That surprises me. I would imagine as a creator and performer of mentalism he would show more respect for others ideas.

I'm just glad he wasn't giving away any subtleties and psychological gambits that we use like having a spectator begin the "letter guessing" for you. Oh wait. Nevermind. He gave up the goods on that one.

I am not surprised.
The man has an attitude, ethics and moral that is disputeable, - and that's an understatement.

For a period he ripped of, copied or talked down on pretty much everything that crossed his path, and named most of them his own creations.
Anyone who had read his books will reckognise quite a number of real creators' work.

Maybe he didn't expect it to be put on youtube?
Also I like how he tries to get these skeptics used to the idea that it can be a good thing to enjoy a magician/mentalism-performance rather then always be after the secret explanations.

best,

I'm quiet disappointed. As Lexa said, maybe he didn't expect it to go on youtube.

I think that any one with half a brain nowadays expects to be put on you tube if they lecture.

He is a rip off merchant - he steals ideas to sell as his own. Its not suprising he would sell out to skeptics for a few dollars.

Yet many on here support him. Its beyond me.

Maybe that's where he fails. Half a brain seems like a lot to ask for.

Must give credit where credit is due. I saw this on Lemniscate's signature. Not sure where he got it from or if it's his own, but I felt it was appropriate for this thread.

Well, there you go. A lot of us attacked him when he first came out for stealing ideas. We were told that we were jealous of him.

He is a THIEF!!! When are you guys going to get it. Do you fanboys get it now? Do see why a large group here were against him? How many more clues will you need to see his true colors?

It seems that it is James Biss's personal choice to not try to please magicians. I think this is well documented, I don't think it should come as a suprise that this is out there. James puts good stuff out but I don't think he's one of those guys that's tapped in to the magic community. Sadly a lot of buyers don't care about the ethics of creators they just want good stuff. One can only look at the success of magic makers to see that. BTW I am not in any way comparing James Biss to MM. I am simply saying that J. Biss simply does his own thing and doesn't seem to worry about anyone else.

I for one have never purchased anything with James' name attached.

After this I don't plan to, and encourage others to do the same.

The only way to combat exposure and theft is to stop supporting exposers and thieves...

One a side note -- James is a consultant on Haim Goldbergs' "Gold Mind" TV show here in Canada. I also plan on boycotting that program...

dispicable.

I didn't expect that. Disgusting. But we've seen in the past always people explaining in public things they didn't invent. They are simply poor thieves. Unfortunately thieves can't explain what they invented as they are too simple minded to invent anything. Jan

This should not be on YouTube!

James Biss should do everything to take it from YouTube a.s.a.p.
