I agree - Magicians are not allowed to have any fun or indulge in any childish humour that lets you escape from the hum-drum of domesicity and evry day life for a split second or two, we can only do that when we are performing for others. OK - lets all be very serious, pompous and boring people.
We are inclined to believe those whom we do not know because they have not yet deceived us...

AND.. the ventriloquism was actually GOOD! Like he had practiced it. Dobson didn't even grab his microphone every time he used the vent voices.
Some people could learn something from that.
Just wonderful.

I wonder if the mods can take a look through this thread and delete any and all references to the Penn/Petty/Dobson/McBride incident.

As far as I recall we're no longer supposed to be posting about it on the Café and these are clearly indirect posts about the matter. I say this as...

1) that's not respecting Steve Brooks' wishes and
2) some people may actually want to discuss this product and review it etc.

By all means people, say you don't want to buy it if it's not for you, that's all part of the discussion, but can we stop with the jibes, like Mr Brooks said this is only going to go away if we stop discussing it (or words to that effect...)

I totaly agree.

I think that will come very soon.
What you now see is a normal phenomenon.
After such events there seem to be the need for a sort of de-briefing. It has it use in a psychological way.
That's what you see here. Don't force it to go away. It will end in a natural way.

Want to spend all day on line writing, I have a suggestion( I'm serous) join amnesty international and put your angry energy into writing emails to oppressive governments and help save some lives rather than use all your energy in bashing people on here.

I think you're half right. I think this thread will die out, if it's not deleted outright, thanks to people who would rather make snide remarks about the effect's creator than talk about the effect. But as soon as Penn or Petty releases another effect and it gets a thread here, it's going to start up again. The days of actually being able to discuss an effect by either of these guys are probably over, because some people can't let go.

You should try and catch Jerry Sadowitz while he's touring. He'll feed your sense of moral outrage to Michelin starred standards. (Oh, and pretty much no magic either. Personally, I loved it.)

The using of a belt buckle to bend cutlery goes well back, I remember a European dealer selling a special belt buckle to bend cutlery at the International convention a long time ago. I liked it but you had to wear your shirt tucked in and you could not wear a waistcoat, this was why I didn't buy it, it was a good idea though !

I will have a look at this on Friday at Blackpool.

If it is a belt buckle then Debenhams in the UK sells a belt with a buckle that can be used to bend cutlery discretely. It's only about 20 quid and works like a dream.
