Hello Gary,
Thanks for the info on the Crash Invaders, what a great-looking cup! When I scrape together the funds for a nice set of cups, I think the Crash Invaders in guild metal will be the ones for me.
Good luck on the rest of this business, sorry to hear about it. I'm sure most of the people here will buy the cups from the originator.
Thanks,
Kelly

Its seems ebay and paypal have sided with his complaint about my messages to him on ebay. I no longer have an ebay account or paypal. It seems I am out of business . well folks that's it from me. I am only going to perform from this point on. It is not worth the effort when a lying piece of **** can threaten me and then get me barred. I have years of good feedpack and records with ebay and paypal yet one complaint and by a thug and its over. Never mind the emails and proof I have showing his intention to steel my designs.
Thanks for all your support and I am sorry I can no longer make cups for sale on the web.

I have closed down magicpitch and gazzocups.co.uk. It was a hoot while it lasted. All my email address's are now cancelled. I'll post a new email here later for those that have out standing issues. Threats of violence to wards me by the person who stole my designs and tossers on here saying I don't care I'll buy them any way if the price is right. Well I think from now on I'll make the cups for Gazzo and those who contact me. Past customers and friends. I can no longer take paypal because this idiot seems to have one. What a **** world

Gary -

This is absolutely ridiculous... I'm not sure how or why things like this happen.

Please know that you have my continued support and positive thoughts.

Best wishes for your success in all endeavors,

Doug

Gary,

You will always have my full support too. Magicians know the importance of protecting intellectual properties, legally or ethically. I am sure justice will prevail sooner.

Well, I'm very sorry to hear it. You're an important name in modern cups and balls. I hope you reconsider, but I understand your frustrations I think. All the best and good luck to you,
Kelly

This is sad news indeed. I never got around to ordering some cups from Gary, but I wish I had. This is the kind of thing that happens when people don't support the artists and originators in our business. They can always find something else to do.

I'm surprised that ebay and paypal would take such actions. I would have expected them to remain neutral in such a circumstance. I don't care what the idiot said, it was still just his word against Gary's. It doesn't seem like it was their business to regulate the C&B or magic business. (that's something we should be doing ourselves)

well, it's our loss. Sorry to see you go, Gary.

Everybody email ebay with a complaint fighting the accusation. Gary I am sad to hear that you are out of the biz. I can say that me set of Love Cups are my pride and joy and I use them daily. I do wish I could have ordered a set of the Crash Invaders before it all ended.. They are truly beautiful.


I wish you the best Gary,
Dylan

It's really difficult to do anything about ebay's capricious decisions, especially when they involve someone who can claim that he has all of these qualifications as a metal spinner. Does anyone remember how difficult it was to get JB busted off ebay?

If Gazzo would nail him because he has used his name to sell knockoff cups, that would do the job.

I'm off busking to day to cool down. Not bothered about ebay at all. Will find a replacement for paypal. I'll make the cups people are waiting for.

I filed a complaint against "Stevie the Louse" with e-bay claiming that he was ripping -off Gary & Gazzo. More reports would help Gary's case. I once did this with a Chinese seller that was ripping off a knife maker in England. It took about a month but it got done. The Chinese guy(s) finally screwed up when they plagarized the knife makers own blueprints in the ad like they had permission...which they did not. Don't give up, Gary; in the words of Bugs Bunny: "Of course you know, this means war!"

All good , Paypal and ebay now say my accounts were not close .which is odd to say the least. However I'm opening a new one not linked to gmail as I have had some odd things happen with that email. After Gazzo getting hacked I think I 'll go with my own email or a smaller company.
Less of a target I hope

I'm glad to hear your back Gary, though we understood, I think many magicians had a tear in their eye when they heard you were leaving.

Cheers!

P.S. if you still want to do moron cups, I'm game; if not, I understand.

I have 2 sets of Gazzo cups made by Gary Animal. Both are hallmarked with the GA inside. These cups are my life. If there was ever a fire in my house the first thing I'd grab is my pouch with my Gazzo cups. Even if I lost everything, I know I could use my cups to build my life back up. That's my busker mindset.

I understand business is business and it's cut throat. But it's different in the magic world. It's small enough to know who the good guys and who the bad guys are. I support Gary 100%, this other creep, I wouldn't buy his cups if they were $5.00. Metal is expensive these days. I hope this guy spins a lot of cups and they sit on his shelf...waiting.

We love you Gary. Glad you're back up and running.
