Did you ever notice that

most "Any Card to Any Number" are NOT "Any Card"
almost all flowers look different from the stuff magicians produce
a slip cut force makes a noise that can be heard from across the room
magicians when seated stand up from time to time; Elmsley Count time
so called pro tips from professionals most often are basic socials skills
there are always the same people in any L&L video. (I'm talking about the magicians, not the audience)
Daryl uses very preaching patter when performing
Jeff McBride has gone way past his prime and belt size
Dai Vernon died 20 years ago
some young magicians understand more about magic than you

Some young magicians understand more about magic than you. Pretty straightforward.

theory11 is a sellout all the time...
the magic place by Criss Angel will be another sell out...
someone recommend you to read some kind of magic books they most likely never read it at all...

Magic forums very rarely have anybody on them who who would be any help to you in developing your magic.

Most magicians are morons who compensate for their near psychological lack of social skills by "knowing a secret"

Even the best known magicians in the world are slightly creepy.

Many mentalists think they are the real deal.

Sorry should have been "...near psychopathic lack of social skills.."

Many effects and routines are designed not to be performed but rather to be sold.

Gradually the economy of magic as an industry increasingly makes more money from people wanting to be magicians and less from people wanting to see magicians.

Almost all magicians talk to their audience as if taking a kindergarten class.

This is paraphrasing Paul Wilson, but I thought it was a funny observation:

...when magicians introduce a trick as an "observation test," they rarely follow through on the premise beyond the opening line.

The Smiling Mule said...

Quite similar to Ortiz introducing the Smiling Mule as a proposition bet, then?

Harr, harr.

The Smiling Mule said...

... in which he eloquently pointed out the weakness of finding a named card as opposed to an unknown selected card...

Why didn't he eliminate THAT "weakness" too, whilst he was destroying the trick with a bloody stacked deck.
