Sit tight, he is in Rome, Ireland, and Kenya for another 2 1/2 weeks with very limited internet access. I am sure he will get back to you when he returns.

I like James Biss.
He has always been honest with me..
Several years ago, this debate was going on about his first book.
It humored me because I had personally witnessed unethical behavior by some of his detractors.
I liked James then. I like James now.
I have seen nothing in his work that indicates dishonesty and I hope that he puts out more work.
You can rant at me, call me names or whatever. But you can't take away my right to support whomever I choose.

And Sven, I liked your videos.
John, I liked your videos as well. I bought a few of your items. I already knew the principles behind some of your work. (One thing, in particular, had been in my show for a long time.) But your implementation was good.
Sometimes things here really surprise me.
James was not part of a clique here and was throughly whipped by some people.
There is a semi-well known dealer of magic who has put out some really carppy junk, displayed terrible business ethics, and these same bastions of "ethics" look the other way.
I find this, well.... amusing. It is amusing but sad.
There are a number of sellers that just rehash old junk.
My suggestion is that you find a reputable dealer, get to know him/her and listen to them.
I very highly recommend Denny at Denny's, Paul Gross at Hocus-Pocus and Joe and Mark at Steven's. Peter Nardi is wonderful if you live on the other side of the pond. There are many, many more. You just have to spend a little time and get to know them.
After getting corrected, I will post more.

Peace,
Parson

Hi folks!

Just back from Ireland and seeing Keith Barry's opening night at Dublin's Olympia Theatre. (1200 people in the audience and he's sold our four shows! He's without a doubt THE emerging superstar of mentalism...and it was a privledge to see him in action. He killed. And yes, he uses an IMB for his Pet effect, one of the highlights in the middle of his new show.)

In Rome, three weeks ago, I spent some quality time with Tony Binarelli and picked up terrific insights that have been haunting me ever since. He's a wise and gracious man and I hope he will be pursuaded to release some of his rough and smooth work for which he is a master. (I will never look at roughing fluid the same way again...)

I'm just repacking to depart tomorrow for Kenya. I really am getting to old for all this travelling!!! ... But my wife and I are excited to be finally heading out to do the school building project I've alluded to before here on the Café. As most of you know, my proceeds from Mind Blowing are financing our school house project in a community called Oloosiyoi on the Masai Mara. If you Google it, you'll discover, as I did, some startling and disturbing statistics. I'm thrilled to be doing something so worthwhile and experiencing such an adventure. I'm thankful to everyone in the magic community who have helped make this happen with the acquistion of my current book.

I look forward to returning with some new stories and some new inspiration from a land where magic is still very real (and where some of our silly arguements here on the Café, will no doubt seem a bit like Woofle Dust).

My apologies for not responding to all my PM correspondance of late and any special requests you've sent me in July. I will try to redeem myself at the end of the month upon my return.

Until then, please continue to focus on the important things in life and striving to make your mentalism more impactful and relevant to a cynical generation.

Warm regards,

James

Is the IMB only suitable for pictures or could I use it for words/ sentences as well?

You can use it for one or two words, so long as they're written nice and large ("so the audience can see them if need be"). I wouldn't risk using it for sentences. The longer the sentence, the smaller the writing, the harder your job becomes.
The secret of deception is in making the truth seem ridiculous.

I use mine for pictures only. I use words for other effects.

As everything else with James Biss' name on it the board isn't his.

Except for that, there is far better solutions to find elsewhere
