It seems yet again that some people or should I say creatures, find it nescesary to hide behind a childish pretend name. Yes it is possible to flush them out, and if you manage to you would be amazed at who they are.
To me accusations from frustrated nobodies can do little harm other than confirm to all what cowards they really are and hold no place within our art let alone on Forums such as this.

Yes I am Surprised to one can Say something Behind a Pretend Name and They Don't even Have the Courage to Do it Under Their Real Name.

Guys,

The internet is much like the CB radio fad of the early 70's. Lots of people who like to pose for their monitors, but really are working out their own self-image issues.

Robert Nelson said that a persons growth in magic is in direct proportion to their ability to overcome the reason they got into magic in the first place.

In Escapes, because so many people are following the percieved Houdini mold, people act like the Highlander thinking "there can be only one". This, added to that self-image thing, makes for some unfortunate comments and issues.

Example, someone wants to say they are 10 times better than Steve Baker. OK, good for you! So we can expect them to be on network television over 100 times (10 times better than Steve)! Good luck to them, when they do that I will believe they are 10 times better.

See how silly it is?

Also, many greats in our field are aging, and let me tell you it isn't fun. EVERY DAY I am a little less than I was the day before, and that stinks big time. How do you think it feels to a superstar?

They have an ego and self-image too; and ALL of us are looking to be remembered as we think we were/are.

As Mister Miracle once pointed out, the trap is in the brain not in the chain.

We struggle with mighty chains indeed.

In truth, there are performing styles I do not agree with. However we are a band of brothers (sisters), and while I will give my opinions and voice my disagreement, I will ALWAYS give credit to the thought and the effort, and to the people in the ring trying their best....

....it is easy to throw darts at things. It is much harder to create, then put that creation in front of all for their critical opinion. Good or Bad.

We stand on the shoulders of Giants, and we must be ready to fall if we step off of them....

....but sometimes we will never know if we can fly until we do.

Lets keep our focus there.....

These rotten apples should be made public, in order to protect the decent people within our ranks.Or at least warn them.

I spoke to Shawn on the phone last night. He's doing well but told me that he doesn't really log on to the Café very much, so anyone wishing to contact him might be better off sending him an email directly.
Best regards, Tony Parisi
