Me and my friend, who is 30 yrs old. Went around a shopping center where our local magic shop is at and we were filming us doing some street magic stuff and trying to get good reactions, and everyone it seemed said "Hey you ever see that one guy....You know that one guy on TV" and they can never think of that "one guys" name.

Also when I am at my work doing magic for people they also do the same thing. "You ever seen that one guy.."

Now they are saying.. " Yea now they have another new guy that is now on TV."

And eventually at my work my friend just had to bring up the masked magician. "Have you ever seen that one masked dude? He was awsome" then he starts to reveal all these tricks he remembers that the masked magician tought, to everyone at my work. Then they all wonder why I don't just tell them how I do my tricks. And I tell them its a rule, never tell the secret. And then everyone at my work gets mad and they keep bugging me about it.


I know a lot of people here know what I am talking about.

Just thought I would type down what happen last Saturday.

Thanks,

John

I don't mind the whole David Blaine thing. I just turn it into a joke. Yeah, they usually can't remember his name, but I tell them. "Oh, you mean David Blaine?". They say, "Yeah!". I say:

"David Blaine ain't got nothing on me", (purposely done with a cocky attitude)..then I say, "No, seriously...he doesn't have my phone number, my email address...nothing...he doesn't write...he doesn't send flowers anymore...".

Say as much as you want. It always gets a laugh for me.

The other thing regarding people wanting you to expose your secrets, I just tell them:

"Why would you want to know how it's done? Because if everyone knew, then there would be no magic."

No one has ever bugged me after that.

As far as this being a "Rule", I personally don't go this route. I let them know that I choose not to tell for the same reason mentioned above.
