Opinions, everyone has one about politics, religion and, yes, even magicians and tricks. And I too have opinions, maybe more so than others. Some might even say that I am extremely opinionated! And I must confess that I am, especially when it comes to performance and tricks. I have the right to remain silent, I just don't have the ability!! I've been in and around the magic scene for over fifty years. I won't say I've seen it all, but I do know that there is nothing new in the way of magic, just technique, presentation and "improved" gimmicks.
I'm not sure where the term "workers" originated. Michael Close used the term in his early video teaching sessions and we all understood the principle It simply means something has been proven in actual performance, time and time again. And that's what this site is all about, opinions, yours and mine, on "workers" and the availability of them.
You may have noticed that we do not carry a huge number of items on our site. There is a reason for that. As we just said, we only want to bring to you what we consider workers. We will constantly be working to bring you both new and old that meets that criteria. We welcome your input and please respond by using your blog.
You will also come to realize that a number of our reviews will be directed to the ACAAN (Any Card At Any Number) effect. It is my favorite card magic and I, like many others, am always searching for something close to the mythical David Berglas effect.
Again, welcome to the site,
Many of you know Tony as one of magic's premier illustrators as evidenced monthly in the Linking Ring and a list of books too numerous to mention. But, did you know that he also is a musician and songwriter? Listen to this little ditty.
