Tonight while at The Magic Castle, I learned that Derren Brown will be awarded the title "Magician of the Year" by the Academy of Magical Arts, Inc (the magic castle) at the upcoming '40th Annual AMA Awards Show and Banquet'. Show date is April 5, 2008 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

My sincerest congratulations go out to Derren for winning this prestigious award! But I think he already KNEW I was going to congratulate him.

Does he know about this? I had always thought that a magician is a the last thing he wanted to be known as.

The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.

I think they are told ahead of time........ uh, mostly. That way they can arrange flights, press, acceptance speeches, etc. I'm not speaking on behalf of the AMA in any way here, I've seen it in pring from the Castle so I assume Smile the winners have been notified.

The AMA award show isn't like the Academy Awards, where the actors are wondering right up to the last moment IF they were chosen or not. That would never happen because we all know that magicians can't keep a secret.... Smile

I agree, Jerskin.

Is the award show open to the public? Or invitation only deal?

It's open to AMA members, not sure if it's open to the public though. You can call the castle and ask, 323-851-3313. Maybe I'll call them Monday and find out for everyone.

Slim,
Aren't you bothered by Mr. Brown's exposure of Corinda's "Chess Trickery" routine?

I care about exposure but most here DON'T ...... It's that simple.
That exposure is not good but many have done far worse and no one really seems to care.
I'm not sure why he'd expose Corinda? Since everyone calls 13 Steps The Bible ...It seems almost sinful Smile
I've been changing. Maybe for the right amount of money "I'LL" start exposing things. Maybe for a TV deal... or a movie. Maybe for some kind of Magic Award ... Who knows?
