I'm not a teenager anymore; life is becoming more stressful. The last real show I did was on new years at a hookah lounge. Magic has mostly completely left my life since then, but I recently caught up with Penn and Teller's new ITV show "Fool Us", which triggered pangs of deep nostalgia. So, here I am. I'll try to spend more time here; I spent many hours on penguin during the time I spent refining my magic and beginning the process of performing professionally, but as I said - life calls. Magic will always be a great escape for me.

Don't really know exactly what I came here to say, but I'm sure plenty of you have experienced this many times in your life. The retrospection that magic triggers is very melancholy to me. I want very badly to spend an evening with paul harris, penn and teller...lance burton, lennart green...it's sad that I will probably never get to

I want to watch it! I love Penn & Teller!

Is it airing, or is it going to air in the U.S.?

It's only in the UK, but I watch them on Youtbube. There's one person that uploads all of the episodes in pretty good quality in only 3 parts. Just search "Penn and Teller Fool Us episode ___". Personally my favorite on the show so far was Piff the Magic Dragon and his sidekick Mr. Piffles.

Thanks Tiggerkim.

Hey, I know we can't do it here, but would anyone like to set up a Skype chat and discuss the methods behind the tricks that "fooled" Penn & Teller?


One other thing...grrrr! This show is REALLY making me want to get back into magic!!!

Howdy,


I MISS the older days on here but i don't think it'll come back. Might have just been a lucky mix of being young and fun posters in off-topic. Now i'm 22 and i think everyone has grown out of here also.

I still come here every once in a while, but its always dead. And i don't even have the urge to post either.

The Bots really kept this place exciting. :P

But seriously, yeah, its so dead all the time! Used to be I'd log in and see a plethora of orange tags, and now...I'll maybe see one or two. What happened?

If you skipped a day by accident, you'd have a couple pages of orange tags!
