Spidey,

Awesome! What I don't think some people (performers ?) are not understanding is how commercial this effect is!! I loved this effect, I really did! Placing a row of conversational names in front of spectators can create so much non magic/mental fun the effect is almost secondary, yet powerful. Also, the pause in the middle to ask "have I done well", regarding your choices of male celebs was classic. This is the type of effect that can 1) make people gasp and more importantly 2) make people have fun! Good luck, bro!

I don't understand The wire at all. Are the effect sold as ebooks or physical books. As a market place it seems really aimed at vendors rather than buyers

My advice Spidey: There is a hole and you are already waist deep, stop digging. I for one do not like watching ships sink. I think you are a good guy, and may deserve positive accolades for this effect and others. But you can't expect it, regardless of your status among other professionals. That and the thin skin you have shown in this post respect is not just given. In the Café you are on different ground. I don't expect you to know this by only having the interaction of 30 posts.

In the Café you are dealing with a much more Seasoned Professional.
Store owners, Working professionals of all styles, and even creators, and modifiers like yourself. I would venture to say all working professionals have created effects or modified another to fit there routine. So I guess what I am saying is the most intelligent people in Magic and Mentalism for that matter are in this forum.

Bedros, if you spend more time in here supporting others, building relationships, offering advice, and solid opinions or support for the younger magicians as many of us do. Paying it forward so to speak, the respect will come. I learned my lessons early on. Just by having my store name as my log in was an early mistake. Sure I want people to visit my store, but I was a magician first. I have a rich history in magic and Magic has been a blessing in my life. I want people to know me for me, and I think over time I have earned the respect of many, but it has taken several years of nearly daily interaction. I think the fine people of the Café see you pop in with 30 posts open a thread about your product. And then see you react negatively to there honest opinion. Now being a creator myself its hard not to react negatively when you have a personal attachment. (It's like telling a woman her baby is ugly) I get that. All I am saying is in the Café the more you give the more you get back... Give more, expect less, and it just flows the way it should.

My thoughts,

lol

thanks for the sound advice Jason.

But theres been a misunderstanding. I have the worst short term memory in the world and CONSTANTLY forget passwords and login names. I've had MANY log in names on this site, this is my most recent one, I used to post a lot on here. Im not just some newbie who decided to squeeze some money out from the pros. But I really do appreciate you looking out for me and the delicacy of your delivery.

thanks
Spidey

I don't have more than one account. What am I suppose to do with more than one account? I HAD other niknames on the site and I kept forgetting the passwords so I kept changing my user name. But at the current moment I have nothing but one account

Pro Tip: If you keep forgetting your passwords use the "forgot password" link.

What were these usernames? Let me guess you forgot those too? And you also deleted the email confirmations?

You can't kid kidders!

For the love of God, do you guys really think that my life is a collection of lies...what would be my interest in lying?!?!

Heres a post where I commented when my name was spidey_magic. http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......orum=111

I cant find anything older than that but seriously, I don't even get the accusation. Why on earth would I say I had other accounts when I didn't :S... geez

Maybe its not the case, but you just come across a bit untrustworthy. I can't understand why someone would create a new account and not just press "forgot password". Seem like a no-brainer to me.

So you aren't going to withdraw this item from sale now you know that it is a duplicate?

Surely the proper thing to do would be to sell your product as "the idea to use celebrities instead of playing cards" and point purchasers to the original routine for methodological instructions.

Spidey,

I like the effect. Thanks for sharing brother. The only recommendation I have is to maybe drop the price to about $5 since it really is just an original presentation. I don't see anything wrong with selling a presentation even if the method isn't entirely original.

Plus, if you put all 7 effects up on the wire that were gonna be on the DVD for $10 a piece, that's gonna be $70! I'm sure the dvd would have only retailed for maybe $30.

I look forward to seeing more from you personally. Just try to drop those prices a bit man.

This is just my personal theory, and this is not directed at anyone in particular, but I think the negative attitudes in Penny can be attributed to a combination of two things:

1. People who are drawn to magic and mentalism tend not to be the coolest kids on the playground. Many of the biggest names like Max Maven and Derren Brown admit this. It's a somewhat nerdy endeavor. Many gravitate to it for the feeling of power and validation that comes from knowing a secret someone else doesn't. Some people are able to move beyond this idea, but many haven't.

2. The relative anonymity provided by the internet.

When these elements are combined on an online forum, a kind of internet snobbery emerges, which I find unfortunate and unwarranted. If you're able to perform magic with an engaging personality, many of these skills are transferable to mentalism.

Don't let your detractors get you down Spidey. Realize that even the greats like Banachek get slammed on Penny. It's not a particularly cuddly place much of the time, from what I've gathered.

Hey man,

thanks for the recommendation and ur totally right, As soon as I put it up I thought of changing the price to 5$ but the guys over at T11 thought that 10$ was a good price and so we left it at that. Thanks so much for your kind words.
