:oops: Thanks!

I wrote that piece long ago. Sadly, illness has brought VISIONS ezine to a close (the main owner has been juggling Cancer for some time and it seems to have finally reached the point to where the magazine hasn't made a new release in at least a year).

When it comes to Magic, you'd be surprised the depths of my background :twisted:

Look up an illusion called "Shadow Vision" and some of the other early releases from Creative Illusions - Las Vegas ;)

Yes, Paul's "IMPOSSIBLE ENVELOPE"... the video will be coming out shortly but the book, which I'm working out, is coming out late due to my health issues getting in the way. The companion book will have at least a dozen variant examples of using Paul's thinking based on my own use as well as that of other top ranked pros (including past Presidents of the P.E.A.)

Paul is an great guy and dear friend. I believe he'll be viewed as one of the unsung heroes of the Mentalism community when all is said and done.

Wow you're a professional magician Craig? I didn't know that.

Do you know how Uri Geller can bend metal bars by just stroking them with his finger? Or how he can bend or extract objects without touching them? Are you privy to such secrets?

When you see David Copperfield do stuff on his shows, do you usually know how it's done?

Long ago I did a 20 minute Metal Bending & Glass Bending routine in my show... so that would be a "yes"

If you were to visit David's warehouse in Las Vegas you will see a photo of me being levitated in the air by Dave... we've known one another for a very long time and I'm probably one of the few effect developers that got him to cry... The Shadow Vision Illusion our "friend" kept exposing here was originally built for an Italian magician named Sylvan, the second one made was for Siegfried & Roy... the irony being that I gave David the video of the effect a good week before giving it to S&R, giving him first dibs. :twisted:

I've done magic since I was four years old and been either on or back stage very regularly since I was ten... I jokingly call myself the kid that ran from home to join the circus. ;)

Craig, I was part of Dave's Project Magic about 30 years ago which I thought was one of the best gifts a magician could give to society. Were you able to partake in that?

I became amazingly disappointed in how David let that just fade out of existence, it was a very positive thing, not just for him or the magicians involved but the people it actually inspired.

Sadly, in those days I was actually working far too much to give any time to it. Aside from shows I also had an ice cream company in those days *(I had one of those antique bicycles with the big ice-chest on the front end that I'd peddle about the neighborhood during the summer... made some darn good money every night... not bad for 3-4 hours work in the evening).

I do believe one of my school chums got involved with that project, don't remember for certain.
