I heard that Kueppers is now dealing with Birdtown. Is this true?

Unfortunate if it is....as he will be placed next to brands like "Sasco."

Hi, Astinus!
I searched for "kueppers" at Penguin.com, and all I found was his balancing quarters.

Hmmm. I don't see Roy's typical type of product as a fit for Penguin Rob. They are obviously targeting a younger demographic, both with low priced product, as well as with the product mix itself. Roy's custom stuff would look a bit pricey to a relative newcomer when there's a Sasco or Sterling equivalent right next to it on the page, especially if that newcomer doesn't have experience enough to balance quality with price, or a real need to spend $50 when he or she could spend $19.95.

Best,

Mike

Sorry to go off topic... but I think you meant to say "Penguin Max"... "Rob" (whom I guess you mean Rob Stiff) runs MagicMakers, a large contributor to Penguin's merchandise...

Sorry for the delay...

No, I was saying, "I don't see Roy's typical type of product as a fit for Penguin, Rob." Rob is Astinus' non-cafe "nickname" Smile

Interestingly I was just talking about Penguin Max with Trickery Howard earlier this evening. We also discussed Magicwarehouse Howard and Hank Lee Hank, all of whom I like, except Penguin Max... I don't know him. What's the significance you may ask? There isn't any, I just like grouping the shop's and owner's names together into single names Smile

Long day for Sundragon Mike, can you tell?

Best,

Mike

My associates have started calling me "Magic Rob" Maybe I can be that?

Hey! Diamond Todd! How's it going man? I finally got the nerve to do "certain routines" for a real live audience at the coffee shop about two weeks ago... Went very nicely I would add Smile

Rob, you can be "Magic Rob" if you want to be. Your full name would then be Rob aka Magic Rob R-J- Astinus.

Whoa!
