Have you thanked Uri?

No joke I am serious.

How many of you that do metal bending have thanked the guy?
This has nothing to do with what you think about him.
It in my opinion it comes down to you would not be doing the effect if not for him.

How many of the guys (Big names and lesser knowns) that sell manuscripts, DVD’s etc on bending have done so?
Oh they make the cash off of his work but I don’t see them quoted on his site and I am sure he would post it if they did thank him.

Many of you know my thoughts on him and my opinion and thanks have been prominent or Uri’s site for a couple of years http://www.uri-geller.com/uri-biography/uribiog4.htm (You have to click my name on his site.)

Anyway my stance and my opinion is that if you do bending or bought information to do so yourself you should thank Uri.

And if not why not?

Best Wishes,

I don't do bending. But I would thank Uri just for being part of my childhood he really made a huge impact on me. Although I think he should retire now his time is over. I would thank him if he did..His current media appearances haven't done him any favours..

Heck I forgot to post his link uri@urigeller.com send him a note and say thanks if you think you should.

Sorry about that just got home from holiday.


Mind,

I would have to agree with you.

His situation can be fixed and I am surprised with all of his cash it has not been.
(I know how to and am really surprised the proper steps have not been taken).

Jim,

so do you thank Lanzi ( well that would be hard) for your stilt walking Jim, I couldn't find anything paying homage to him on your website?...
more to the point, do you thank, blind people for inspiring you to do something challenging while blindfolded.

Come to think about it, where do you draw the line if you think anyone who does metal bending should pay homage to Uri, shouldn't we go thru all our effects and search out the right person to pay our respect to?...ahh but then we would spend our whole time thanking those who we think influenced us and not getting on with the show people pay money for.

And yes I am in a !@#$%y mood Smile
I do look forward to the day when you post something constructive.

Steve, we all get like that at times(P****) and I do make reference Ray Charles in the complete footage of the Blind-Quest presentation.
(He was the inspiration for the demonstration. I was to have met him and taken some film but he passed three weeks and two days before that was to happen.)

I know nothing of Lanzi and if you could offer a link I will give it consideration.

But in this case with Uri I see it as an intellectual theft.

It is his(Uri's) it has been ripped off and it is blatant.
And I am talking about a private thanks not a shout out durring a show or on a website.

How hard is it to send an email of thanks?
uri@urigeller.com

I can find many links on the internet with him, this is one to start you off. I read about him in a book a number of years ago, if I come across the book I wil post the title
http://stiltwalker.com/history.htm

My point Jim is that by your definition ever 'alledged' fraud that we duplicate an effect we should pay our repsect to? that doesn't make any sense, If Uri was pure and simply doing a magic trick and didn't claim he is doing it via paranormal means, then yes I am pretty sure all would pay some kind of respect to.
But he doesn't he claims it for real, and I do not, so why should I thank him? It a road you just don't want to get on...i.e do you thank original ( whoever they are) fortune tellers when you do a reading.

I pay respect when respect is due, but respect needs to be earned, it is not something someone should get by default, or demands.

I don't see why Uri deserves my respect if I bend metal ( as a trick). However I do thank Richard & Banacheck for their work, and they have my respect as they have earned it with their approach and dealings.

one final pint anyone that sends Uri a letter of thanks is setting themselves up for a lawsuit, as your are admitting on paper that you are copying his effect, and we all know uri is sue happy.
I do look forward to the day when you post something constructive.

Uri creates "reality" as a trick...

You seem to really miss the effect he is creating and it isn't spoon bending..it is MUCH bigger than that. No one can be famous just by bending spoons not even Uri..

He is much more than a spoon bender....many don't get it.

So Steve, you thank the guys that 'borrowed' from Uri and if they thank him that is good with me becouse that is were it came from.

If you are telling me that you did not know these effects were based upon Gellers work I have no problem with that.

Please Note: When doing my reading demonstration I do mention Richard Webster and tell people my work is based upon his becouse it is.

The world knows of mental bending becouse of Uri the guys that taught you how were doing so becouse of Uri.
I think the guy should be thanked you can do so here uri@urigeller.com

Jim

PS. My stilt idea came from stilt performers and sheet rock hangers I worked with.

Under your definition they borrowed from Uri, don't forget here Jim this is your opinion and yours alone.
In my opinion a fraudster isn't someone I am going to pay thanks to. Richard and Banachek who do bending purely for entertainment are being honest... period.

Fraudster don't get my respect you consideration.

Once again I would tell everyone Think very carefully about Jim's advise about sending Uri a thank you note, You will admitting on paper that you use his effect without any permission.

Jim your 'PS' statement is kinda void due to your comment at the beginning of your reply.
I do look forward to the day when you post something constructive.

I like Uri Geller, but I must admit that this was a great line from you.

Having just listened to an interview with Al Mann, I'm pretty sure he would have thanked Uri! And not those who copied him. Smile

Uri was the wave that many surfed upon. Without the wave, there would be no surfers. Smile
