The great trouble with magicians is the fact that they believe when they have bought a certain trick or piece of apparatus, and know the method or procedure, that they are full-fledged mystifiers. -- Harry Houdini

Wow he really hit the nail on the head, and even talked about what I have said in the past about easily obtained knowledge on the internet, and how this knowledge is not appreciated like the good old fashioned worked for knowledge. I enjoyed the article.

It was nice to see that he wasn't scared of the exposure on the internet (I know why should he be..he is one of the greatest) but sees it as a challenge that he can over come and we all should look at it that way. Thanks for the link.

yes I agree. I also use to tell ppl that the masked magician actually promoted interest in the art, and made ppl wonder just what all these magicians were up to. however I also believe that most would just give up after seeing exactly just how difficult, and how much dedication magic takes in order to be proficient at it.

a few of my friends became interested in magic for about a week after the shows lol. once they seen the work involved, well they left all the magic stuff to the real magicians. Smile
