Just A Sunday Post #82

Some rants:

Magician's Oath
"As a magician I promise never to reveal the secret of any illusion to a non-magician, unless that one swears to uphold the Magician's Oath in turn. I promise never to perform any illusion for any non-magician without first practicing the effect until I can perform it well enough to maintain the illusion of magic."
The line "I promise never to reveal the secret of any illusion to a non-magician, unless that one swears to uphold the Magician's Oath in turn." is weird, that means you can show it to anyone. And anyone can show it to anyone in turn! As long as you recite the oath.

Calen Morelli
Thinking one is the creative gift to the world is alright, sometimes. A little hubris prevents us from feeling like one of many, but with Calen Morelli it seems to be too much.



Mind Blowing. And so nice to make the spectator's clothing wet. Anyway, Calen Morelli sucks as a performer. Yet you can have an online skype session with him for just 99 dollars. Do you want to get taught by this young man?
Calen suffers from the Sankey Syndrome. That means he will create tons of tons of material that is neither groundbreaking nor shit. Once in a while he will hit the jackpot. Pro tip: Don't publish your material unless it has proven to be good. We got one Jay Sankey, that is more than enough.

Magic Contest
How pathetic is this: In order to learn cool magic secrets the maker of this blog made up a contest It is sick, that it has come to this.

Gee, Sankey #2...

His performance style is just like a kid doing childish stuff.

Looks like our tiny magic magic community is running out of good stuff, or may I say, good stuff are being well protected to be released.

Lucky that I switch all my attention to books, especially old books to look for audience tested materials and inspirations.

It seems a bit early days to compare him with Jay Sankey. Jay has come up with really great material. Let's way and see...

Good call on the Sankey analogy. I got his 2-DVD set. There is 1 DVD worth of good material on there.

He is a good thinker but an awkward performer.

As a creator of magic stuff myself, saying something damning about creating magic is a tricky place to teeter upon... but creating magic for the sake of creating is silly.

Creating purely for the sake of selling it is downright evil.

I think the point is the trick works. all the spectators laughed the hell out of em
