Kid, your mom is hot!
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Kind of my point.

Johnny Thompson being the obvious exception to that rule.

The dislike for "Sam the Bellhop" can be expressed as a formula; the number of John Shirleys/the number of everybody else doing Sam the Bellhop.

Bill Malone gets Sam the Bellhop done well also.

To quote The Who "It's the singer not the song, that makes the music move along".

The vast majority of magic effects done are done poorly in my view. Worse yet they are being done by people who think they are excellent! Even worse than that they are encouraged by others, doing just as poorly, to keep doing it poorly! Then they congratulate each other in how great they do the effect.
