Coming up on 10 years now and man has this place gone down the toilet. i remember when it seemed like a more inviting and close knit place where Jay and Oz would demo the tricks with the cool Penguin music in the intro (I think if you watch some tricks like cardtoon 2 or stealth pen you will get the idea).. Now Penguin like all other companies seems to have wrapped itself up in this Web 2.0 nonsense and seems more like a corporation selling other people's tricks with some psuedo-Ellusionist gritty urban intros to every video. The internet was still learning to adapt to broadband and I remember waiting for 2 or 3 hours to download a video demo of a trick (back on Dialup). wow i sound like a angry old man yelling at the kids to get off his lawn... at least the forum style has remained the same.

I still browse occasionally, and yeah as I said years all the new demos are crap. You don't even see the effect until the middle or end. Give me back the old school demos of just showing a trick with no bells and whistles crap so I can see how it looks in reality. Kinda like the [edited] Stoner catalog videos, no BS just one trick right after the other. No emo BS either. Still can't believe how much time I spent here and how long many of my posts were, many 20-30 paragraphs and my essays contributed to the development of the essay forum for such posts. I loved it back then when Blaine was king and this forum was booming. After that it was all down hill. Bu for us old school members Penguin seems to be part of our blood and you just can't help but to come back once in awhile. But having done magic now for 32 years, for me it is a lifestyle and not just a passing phase as it is for most who join here. I started reading here in Jan 2003 and finally joined in Sept to post. Still remember my first post like it was yesterday, and was ecstatic to be posting on my first online magic forum. Us 10-year veterans should have some type of special name or club that was even more dead than this forum.
