Just a few days ago we saw the launch of Dan Pelletier’s forum on the topic of the Tarot. And, boy, has he filled this with good stuff already!
Now we have the launch of Michael McDonald’s forum on the subject of Performance. Michael performs for real and very regularly, so this guy knows what he is talking about.
He also is very giving, supportive and totally lacks the arrogance and elitist strutting we see all to often in magicians who perform for a living (or in some cases, profess to!)
What I mean is, he is a great guy to talk to if you are a performer too and will help all those who are starting out with an open heart and nothing to prove.
Michael has already made thee fantastic posts.
The first is a fascinating record of his own evolving journey through magic and is simply a ‘must-read’ for all magicians, no matter at one level.
The second is an open challenge, and one which is illiciting some of the most interesting responses I have read in a forum. Some very useful ideas here.
The third thread is…. well, you will just have to go a see!
So what is the idea of the ‘Magicians Studio’ anyways?
The idea is a simple one – to get some actual content on a forum, something worth reading. To achieve this, each ‘topic will have it’s own moderator who will throw off any worthless posts, leaving just the stuff worth reading.
Each topic will have two areas – a library area – this is where the topic’s moderator posts articles and other materials that s/he has written or had sent in.
Under this, a general discussion area.
This means all the good stuff gets filtered out into the library.
At the same time we can all post ideas, questions, comments and general daft stuff in the chat areas.
Want to contribute?
Just post in the relevant topic area – if it is good, the mod will move it into the library.
Alternatively, you can pm the mod and submit directly to him/her.
You guys know which forum to come to for the real stuff!
