I just heard that Britain's finest TV medium, Derek Acorah, has been commissioned to do a TV show in the USA.
You guys will fall in love with him I'm sure. He's a bit different from John Edwards. more homely some might say. Anyway Britain has taken him to their hearts and I'm sure he'll have an effect on you. I got a private reading from him 3 weeks ago and I have to say, as much as I believed he was a complete TV actor, he totally blew me away!

Wasn't he in one of the clips on "TV's most embarrassing moments"? What a legend.

Hi cardiac.It was all personal stuff. names etc. he could not have known he was seeing me that day. I've simply no idea how he did it other than his own explanations. That being that he is truly psychic.

Bobser, yet it was - one of the 'most haunted' shows where he was possessed by the spirit of a failed actor. Very funny.

Bobser surely you did not fall for that, Derek is a complete conman and as about psychic as my hamster. His guide "sam" is total codswallop. He recently did some filming in Faversham to be shown at a later date, a friend of mine was approached to go on the show as she is a pagan, Before she met Dereck his backroom team interviewed her, got masses of personal infor. When they met he said "sams telling me your a pagan" yes, "and you drive a blue car" yes. utter utter crap. I met him as well, I asked can you put me in touch with my Mother "yes" "she died of a heart attack" no, "no sorry, sams pointing to her chest" no, "im sure its stomach problems" no my mums still alive arsehole and I left him speechless. a true story. I will say it again COMPLETE FRAUD WHO SHOULD BE EXPOSED FOR PROFITING OFF THE GRIEF OF OTHERS >

I meant to say ...

I HAVEN'T really taken to Derek A., but will keep an open mind !

A typo on my part - it WAS early in the morning when I wrote it !

I agree with Ian B. But he is a great actor ! But no, I don't feel convinced by his TV antics.

Ok, Ian,
I feel your pain.
But neither Derek nor his team spoke to me beforehand.
In all fairness to you I'll give you the same crack of the whip I gave him.
Now then, either give me the same info he gave me, or tell me how he got that info. I've got a funnY feeling you've got no reply. Well? Am I correct? Mmmm thought so.
C'mon, fair dues to the guy. There's hardly a thing out there any mentalist can do that I can't, or at least replicate in some way. So... you tell me how he does these things.
This is one guy who'se private performance is a so much better than his TV show.

Ian Rowland has a great chapter in his 'full facts' book about why you should never get into conversations like these. Interlude 1 'How do you explain that?'.

I'll give it a go, cos my right hand is vibrating a warm buzz, and that usually means something.

You've got two healthy young kids, around 20 yrs - Bruce & Lansme-juniour. You drive a white fiat Punto. Everytime you put the car back in the garage you feel a warm sense of self satisfaction.

In a drawer in your bedroom you have a collection of pressed dragon-flies. A friend of yours insisted you look after them for him when he took up a profession as a bee-keeper and partially lost his interest for the dragonflies. This friends name is either Nuala or Nicholas - something with 3 syllables beginning with "N".

You went into a MacDonalds recently, the service was top-notch and you ate heartily, that evening you were so pleased with your day that you felt quite at ease when you pushed an elderly lady down a public stair-way. You feel uneasy that you still feel little guilt for that and occassionally you just lash out and punch a wall or cast a javelin at the moon.

You conversed briefly with Richard Bandler sometime in the last few years. He privately confessed to you a secret about an action of his sometime in the late eighties. When he did this you thought to yourself "I knew it!"

You occassionally get an itchy feeling around an area in the small of your back where you have a tattoo. This tattoo has some important information you wanted to remember, but you can never arrange the complex arrangement of mirrors needed to find out what it says.

You sometimes wonder if Stalin was bullied at school. Your arms are made from Wildebeest.

You have a reecuring dream that you are flying on the back of a winged dog to Tunisia. You wake up in a cold sweat and wish you could tell your partner, but worry she'll laugh.

... it's basic banter I know, but I had a go. Thanks, Pasq.

C'mon Pasq, that was all just sheer luck!
Anyway you were wrong about Bandler. It's no secret about him and Ian Broadmore. And Ian says it was simply about: "two young men releasing their Greek genes within the maelstrom of urban living".
Having said that I did detect a 'soupcon' of a smile in his writings.

regards,
Bobser.

"Greek genes" eh? For my sins I've been living in Wakefield recently. Our enormous prison has a few famous names. Bet they're kicking themselves now they didn't think to use the "Greek genes" excuse in court.

I know I will. P.

Hey Pasq, you get no sympathy lounging around there in your Wakefieldian pied-a-terre.
And let's get one thing straight Ian (hope the word straight doesn't offend).
both Derek and you are great actors. C'mon... after me... 'I can do it, I can do it, I can do it!'

Bandler's only a "con-man" in the good way in which the American pragmatist philosophers are - (if I may name-drop - Rorty!)

Bandler threw "Truth" up in the air, realised it was a bizarre concept, & ran with other concepts that were more inclined to making him fulfilled.

Well done. Which is why figures such as ROBERT DILTS are a complete waste of time! "NLP is just a mode to find an EPISTEMOLOGY?!?!?!" I SERIOUSLY doubt that Bandler had a new epistemology in mind when he initiated NLP.

As far as I can see, all the passionate charasmatic good things about NLP, were concerned with pragmatics & what might be possible, rather than what might or might not be real or true etc etc.

I much prefer an interesting con-man.

Now, back to Acorah ... ... P.

Well said Pasq. Derek's a winner. And I like the way he smiles in the face of danger. I also like the female producer. She's genuine too.
But don't get me going on Rorty. Show me a man who doesn't fully bow before epistemology and I'll show you a hob-nob.

I'm in the U.S., so I'm only vaguely familiar with Acorah. Was he the guy who had the "Kreed Kafer/Derek Faker" incident, or was it another guy named Derek? I remember reading something about that, but only vaguely, and I can't remember if it was him or not.
