He's another corny magician doing the same exact handling 90% of them learned from watching the Banachek videos.

Why others may disagrre with Mr. Browning's assesment, I would like to interject here that he is a fine gentleman and not a liar.

Steve happens to be a friend of mine, I'm quite familiar with the work he does and we have spoken more than a few times about "impossibilities" etc. But what I said is that this clown has probably watched Steve's videos and has based his routine on that feedback, the alternative would be Guy Bavli's material which is a bit less polished. There is likewise... gesh! I can't recall his name at the moment, he got into some trouble a while back when people were accusing him of stealing from Banachek when such wasn't true... another bit of Cafe drama :roll:

I deliberately took all bending bits out of my show long ago simply because of clowns like this jerk, who know just enough to get into trouble and prove that they aren't psychic, but magicians trying to B.S. the public... I was doing bending and watch stopping before most of these jerks were born, so go figure.

i said it was a lie what craig browning said cause none of the routines of banachek goes like that.. look for the videos.. at most it is based on randi´s spoon bend which is also bad.

like i said.. the metal bending of richard wiseman and the rest of the skeptics is pathetic
i dont see the point of exposing metal bending
if it was the 80s and they were clowns around saying they are psychics i totally agree
but is 00s.. nobody cares about spoon bending so why bother exposing it.. what´s next dowsing?

Close, but no banana...

Old? Certainly, but the miles hurt more than the years.

If you are tying to accuse me to be a Charlatan, I fear that you'd fall flat on that front as well... a large score of my friends are deeply linked to the JREF and other skeptic's groups; they understand where I and other Old School mentalists come from and why we end up doing far more good than any arm chair wannabe. But then I doubt you've had much in way of learning from people like John Riggs, Jerome Finley, Richard Webster, Stephan Mind, Millard Longman and others that are all Old School in how they approach their Mentalism... AS ENTERTAINERS who just happen to also do private Readings... that are "trick free"... and that includes "Cold Reading" as you'd probably call it... we go a bit outside that level on things.

There are many who have learned what it means to be a "real" Psychic in the world of mentalism and that's what we are, even Bob Cassidy calls himself such, so you might want to be a bit more careful as to your negative views, you may be putting down a whole lot of noted personalities while embracing ideas and misguided information from those that are simply cashing in on the current trends... but then I don't hide behind a faux name no matter what forums I go to simply because I have nothing to hide.

I think the point wasn't the age inference but rather that back & forth game you are playing... it's non-productive, time consuming and in general annoying to most adults.

what back and forth?
im just telling honestly that the metal bending handling ISNT banachek
craig,.. you know the handling isnt from banachek...
cause IT IS PATHETIC and pointless.. at most it is RANDI´s Handling. Not Banacheks

like i said
i dont see any back and forth..
maybe craig you can produce a video and prove me wrong were banachek does the pathetic handling that we see in the videos
