There is a difference between just flat out telling a lie. And trying to deceive some one for the art of entertainment.
Look I have read several of your posts,,, you seem to post about hearsay,, which would never be allowed in court. I would like to hear only your real experiences.
and that makes no sense because I have never tried to prove any thing and never claimed nor suggested that Criss is a hieratic. I have actually never posted ANY THING bad about Criss. I wouldnt even consider any of this a bad post either. I posted this for other people and they attacked me so I defended my self. Read my posts again friend because your wrong.
Like I was saying if he uses whatever he has to his advantage and that includes camera editing and stooges then thats fine. But by means of camera editing he shouldnt claim EVERY SINGLE trick he does can be done in front of ANY live audience because its not true.
Like I said a million times before. I NEVER thought Criss used camera editing, again I dont know where you pulled this from but Im simply defending my self. Do a search on me and go back and read my posts again, instead of reading this one single thread and making such claims.
Again you obviously havent read every post and your coming to false conclusions simply by reading 1 or 2 posts in the middle of this thread. So go back and read. I could case less about camera editing and stooges all together. My main concern I have been addressing since the start was ethics in magic and the POSSIBILITY he stole another magicians effect with out permission. Because thats extremely wrong and disrespectful. And I completely agree with Wildheart.
What 'real' experiences would you like to hear about considering they have NOTHING to do with this thread at all. How I have stole other magicians effects and put them on national television?
This was taken from the Pen and Teller thread.
here is my comments on magic,,, all these guys are good,, its entertainment.. and its all lying,,, Look,, when you palm a card are you not lying to your audience? Anyone over 8 years old knows the camera lies.
So all this ,,,stuff about what is right and not right in magic baffles me. The whole idea is to decieve,, use what you have to do that,, and never tell how its done. Its kindof like all is fair in love and war.
My take,, just enjoy and celebrate it all.
Way to hang out in the same section and copy and paste the same garbage over and over. Try taking the time to rewrite a more thought-out post.
