Hello Everyone!

I was in Browser's Den today where I learned that world famous writer and magician Roberto Giobbi (Author of, among others, the Card College Series) is coming to Browser's Den on Sunday, August 12, 2007 for a lecture!

The lecture is on Sunday, August 12, 2007, from two until five, and is partially sold out already. This lecture is possible thanks to Mr. David Ben of Magicana and Jeff Pinsky of Browser's Den, and rumor has it that some big name magicians (other then the three already mentioned!) might be in attendance.

I'm going to be there, and I hope everyone else will take advantage of this unique opportunity. Call Jeff at 416-783-7022 to book your spot.

Ben Train
p.s.
I have NOTHING to do with this event. I just didn't want anyone to miss this chance to see a living legend!

Is anyone going to this? I've seen a ton of lectures (heck, I organized a bunch!) and I think this will be one to be remembered.

I've canceled other plans so as to be in the area for this!

Hope to see you all there!

I think I might actually be able to make this talk. As it happens, I'll be passing through Toronto right around that time. Talk about serendipity.

Hey, Josh, I was also at the CAM meeting and I think I was standing on your immediate left or thereabouts when your avatar photo was taken. Oooh, spooky.

Wow.

Wow.

Wow wow wow wow wow.

Giobbi was fantastic. The material he taught was KILLER (I will be using something, but I don't want to say what!) and the lessons he taught were unreal. I filled up over 12 pages of notes alone!

And, the attendance was star studed- Lee Asher, David Ben, Kostya Kimlat, Herb Zarrow, Bill Kalush, Bill Goodwin, John Carny, Jamie Ian Swiss, Jason England, and a ton of others.

Thank you Mr. Giobbi. Thank you Mr. Ben. And thank you Mr. Pinsky,
Ben

Superbe experience. I drove 9 hours to see the man and 9 hours to come back home and it more than worth it. There was invaluable lessons to be learnt there.

Giobbi is a class act. I was impressed with his patience at the book signing.

I picked up a copy of "The Secret World of Magic" documentary DVD he was selling. I've only just started to watch it, but it looks to be very interesting.

Ben,

You probably are mistaking me for Yves. I am the 6'-4" guy, Yves is the, hum, smaller one... Anyway, there is very good chance that I will be at the Montreal Magic Jam althought I won't be able to attend the Sunday workshop with Wesley James. Too bad...

Oh.

But you cannot deny, at 6'4, that I probably saw you.

Ah ha!

And, since I derived pleasure from it, I stand by my comment.

It was good seeing you AND Yves.

It was an excellent lecture, wasn't it?

"Elegant" was a word Giobbi used a lot, and it shows in his performance, technique, etc.

He was exactly as I would have thought him to be, based on my impressions from having read his books.

Among other things, his talk about Vernon's impact on magic was enlightening and well illustrated.

In his lecture, Giobbi mentioned that he used (sometimes? always?) mind maps / concept mapping to routine his act and write his books.

During the course of the lecture, you may recall that he showed us his mind map for Card College.

If you are interested in reading more about mind mapping / concept mapping, here are some links I coincidentally came across today in the course of my "day job":
