Sorry Dave and others, I just was having one of those days, if you know what I mean. I didn't mean to offend anyone.
None taken, it can be hard to "read" ones tone and feelings over a forum.
I am not angry so much, but as said "frustrated."
You get annoyed by arguing, I get annoyed by these kinds of topics.
You ask do we want out art like this... full of arguing.... no we dont want it full of that. Debate yes, thats healthy.
But I can ask... do we want our art full of wannabe, fake as, egotistcal, youtube and magic-less performers... that call them selves real magicians?
I for one dont. I dont consider any one that only performs on youtube a magician.
If it is footage from a real show, thats different. But I would call those youtube magicians. As they, generally have real performance skills.
Being a youtube "magician" proves nothing but that; you probalby have little to no performance skills and rarely if ever perform for real people (other than friends and family).
And not to reply to these topics? Why... they were posted for replies both positive and negative. If you just expect positive responses... thats just
You get no where with that kind of mind set or atmosphere. If all I were to do is babby people here, and sugar coat everything, I wouldnt really be helping... in fact it would be hurting them even more.
And I did actually answer his question. He just didnt get the answer he wanted.
And to supertom- big whoop you met people from a tv show americas got talent... That doesnt impress me. And no, I didnt see them. I dont care for these types of shows... I personally think they are stupid.
I dont watch "reality" tv shows or contests like america has talent- truthfuly I watched it once with some friends with that ventriloquist performance.
I could say that I know performers that have world record in escapes, have been on ripleys, have worked with some master magicians, have been to the magic castle, have met david copperfield... i could go on... now whether these are true or not means nothing of my skill in magic.
To think that is immature and arrogant.
And why you bothered to mention that little tidbit of yours... just baffels me. It has little to do with this topic. To me it sounds as if your just trying to show me up, or make me feel bad... who knows.
But again I say, I dont really care if met them and they give you tips.
