Jim,
Why do you use the name J ack as well as Jim? Why do you use a spacebreak after the 'J'?

Yes, definately so. mentalism is very strong in Israel. Israeli's are also great mental creators.

Everything I have seen and experienced supports that, esp. considering the ratio to overall population. Maybe I should move there...

Israel had to develop these skills - when you are surrounded by the forces they are.. it makes sense developing the appearance of masterty of the mind, magic and other forces is natural!

Eretz Israel, I look forward to going again... last time I went was right after the Gulf war and things were very peaceful for a time. The ancient structures, the amazing amount of religious centres of power, (the excellent food), the natural beauty (like mountains to the lowest point of the Dead Sea in hours)... Masada... Eilat.... if one doesn't get filled with tons of creative energy being in the land that has so much history, culture, political issues, geography, fauna and flora (oh... one mystic moment I had was one Masada where for a span of five minutes, no tourists, no nothing...most people had left... then suddenly a yael walked around a corner and looked at me from about a foot a way and I swear it smiled)...

I had enough inspiration of bizarre magic and mentalism angles that still are bouncing around my head.

Of course, depending who you are, almost anywhere on Earth can be inspirational (including the Antartic)...

lol@DJM, now you are REALLY talking my language, no misunderstandings here!

That's it, I off to visit ASAP, esp. since I have never been there. Heck, while I'm there, I'll have to visit Lior and pick up... um, everything of his that I don't have (Big Trivia and the new DVD).

... sheesh, DJM... but you are correct. In good shape too for all the military training... and no pushovers that is for sure. Plus, you have a large amount of Russian Jewish beauties (i.e. Mila Jajovich types) now there too.

Dr Spektor & Lemniscate, here is an offer:
Why don't you DO visit Israel and the end of November and come to MARS 2007 (Magic At the Red Sea) convention. There will be three lectures about mentalism by myself, Shimon Nahmani (also was at the 'successor') and Itai Asher-Meir (really inovative guy).

These three lectures hold original material. Also arriving: Harry Allen, Joshua Jay, Aaron Fisher, Sandi Masuri and David Kaye (all Jewish - by chance)

So, you will enjoy visiting the Promised Land as well attending a really good convention.

First, Ms. Pelled, baruch ha'bah! Welcome to this forum, where there is as much camaraderie as vigorous debate. Smile

Second, I think that Israel has had to go and does go beyond the "appearance" of mastery, to "actual" mastery in order to survive and thrive, as it has!

That is the motto for the very creation of the State of Israel: "Im tirtsu, eyn zo agadah" - "If you will it, it is no legend" - the very essence of magic.

So mote it be, and ESPecially yours, Im yirtze ha'shem,

Ms. Pelled:

Because of your fortuitous appearance on our forum, I found and read the article at http://www.metimes.com/storyview.php?Sto......46-2298r

According to the article about "The Successor" show in Israel:

"In an interview, Geller insisted that the prime-time show does not involve sleight of hand - and that the participants do actually have supernatural powers capable of performing marvels."

However, the NBC incarnation called "The Phenomenon" has Criss Angel, Uri Geller's co-host, warning that if any performer claims supernatural powers, he will bust them on live television.

How do you predict that Angel and Geller will interact on this issue, and will there be an explosive event of exposure on live TV?

Arnon, the people who expose magic (i.e. masked magicians) are frustrated magicians who didn't make it to the TV show and need their five minutes of glory at any cost.

The production of the show might make it controversy to gain more debate, interest, ratings and...$ $ $

I'm not talking about other magicians - I'm talking about the co-host, Criss Angel himself, as he has promised the viewers in his own words!

I agree 100% on all accounts.... Most exposers are low rate hacks in any venue and not just magic, mentalism...

Scott Cram told me a story when I asked him about the Masked Magician series years ago (he was still in Pleasant Hill at Cal Magic).

He told a story about an old building that was torn down to make way for a Target. They tore the old building down in a day but it was months and months and months before the Target was built.

The moral: It is much easier to tear something down than to build it up.


I always remember that story when I am tempted to take the easy way on anything. Sometimes the easy way is fine and sometimes it isn't. Exposure is the easy way for people who can't (or are too lazy) perform to make an impact.

I also always ask myself if I am tearing something down or building something up. Thanks for the thoughts, Scott!
