I got no picture of the face of Jay... so here is another pig.

I seriously let this guy go at one time. Not so much anymore. His name is Jay... that is all I know about him. He now has a website And it is all about exposing magic. Teaching has very little to do with it.

The main problem: Right now he has 240 videos and 64.534 followers. That's a lot. Too much for my taste. Enough to make him a Magic Failure. At least for this week.

I could go off on a rant how his treatment of magic is hurting the image of magic, as it reduces the tricks to just the secret and therefore reducing magic. But I save that one this time.

I don't have any trouble with someone teaching magic, but if you do, the effects you teach either have to be your property, or you need permission from the creator. Since this obviously isn't the case here, he's a worthy failure.

By the way, if you can't find a face to go with the name, he's probably not an actual magician doing shows or performances in the real world... If he is, it's obviously an attempt to hide his identity since he knows what he's doing is illegal and wrong.

I have to admit I learned a couple of simple things from this guy when I started out. I didn't realize he was trying to create a market out of it. Too much.
