You would need a lot of patience to set it up.

You are all now released from my psychic influence and can return to your daily duties.

How about a forum (more like a 12-step program) for people addicted to mentalism:

"MA"- Mentalists Anonymous (Not to be confused with the other "MA"- Marijuana Anonymous)

"Hi, my name is Gabelson, and it's been 3 weeks since I did my last center tear." (HUGE APPLAUSE)

"When I was about 13, I saw Doug Henning on Broadway, and that's when I bought my first trick. After that, I couldn't stop. And the sponge balls were just a gateway to more serious stuff-- like cold reading and hypnosis. I couldn't stop-- I let it interfere with my work, lost jobs because of it, and destroyed relationships because of my obsession. My whole world centered around mentalism and magic-- others who were addicted to magic were the only friends I had, too. I isolated and shut myself off from everyone in the outside world. I tried to stop many times- I said, "One more trick, and that's it." But I couldn't do it myself. I had to admit I was powerless...I became estranged from my wife and family. Every free second, I would sneak onto the Magic Café and get what I needed... it relaxed me, and allowed me to escape from reality. Sometimes my wife would catch me in the act, and say, "That green page again?! You can't stop, can you?"

That's pretty much my story, guys. Sound familiar?

The M.A. forum. For those like myself, who must take it one effect at a time.

How about a "13 Steps (from mentalism)" Program/Forum.

Disclaimer: I realize that I am helpless to quit (performing) without the help of my Higher Power. (Which is how I perform most of my effects anyway). And that just for Today, I will not take a "peek" at anything.

Sublime, G-son. That's that switch you can't turn off again, isn't it?

Thanks again, Don Theo. They don't give these jobs to chimps, you know.


I have a confession to make. I went out. I admit, I'm powerless. I was in a diner tonight with really cheap silverware, and I bent a spoon. And I had 89 days clean! -I was one day away from getting a Porper folding chip.

So I called my sponsor tonight just as I was about to pick up a deck. He told me "You did the right thing by calling me before you picked up. Remember- yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery. Today is a gift-- that's why they call it "the present". I had no idea what the **** he was talking about, so I hung up and practiced my false shuffle.

Don't use them.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000
