You got to love a bunch of magicians, on a magicians board, arguing about a term created by magicians to separate one group of magicians from the rest of the magicians as they ply their tricks. Sorta like a bunch of prostitutes discussing which are most chaste.

You seem to spend a good amount of time here.... Smile

Any thread started by a troll who got banned is bound to be cursed. Beyond that, it's hard to find people who you can actually exchange ideas in a healthy way nowadays. I'm glad I've found knowledgeable performers and good friends here... it's pretty much the only two reasons to stay on Café.

While some people get carried away by definitions... I believe being defined as an artist/performer/creator is far more important than being defined as a mentalist/magician/whatever. If you call yourself a mentalist and another one in the business call you a magician... and your audience call you a devil worshiper... which definition will be heavier in the end for you? And I'm not talking about the weight of what is said, but the weight of WHO said it. I thought the answer should be obvious but apparently it isn't. Maybe because there are different kinds of commitments. Maybe because ego gets in the way. Either way, pointless conversations like this one are tiring, yet they manage to be so frequent here.
