    Truly, what an embarrassment Peter Loughran is in his latest “illusion”. I suggest the man get out of magic. What layman actually believes his crap the way he presents it. Loughran is such an insult to this art form. I’ve never purchased anything from this individual, so this is not personal. This is just horrific magic to say the least. Mr. Logughran I hope you make up for all the crap you have made. Follow your dream and impress the world, not the gullible magic teenager!!

    Those were some dooseys!

    Wow. Those are some pretty harsh words but I get what u mean. How many “2.5 inch high levitations” can one person possibly handle? And almost ALL are overpriced versions of the exact same effect!

    I have YET to see it done correctly in recent years. The BEST version I ever saw was an exact duplicate of one of Balducci's original presentations. Half these guys have NO CLUE how good it can be when used correctly, using the same old method. But they insist on reinventing the wheel again and again and again. Even those who claim to “think outside the box” are full of the same junk. Poor kids are spending tons of money on JUNK today!

    Those were some very harsh words…from someone hiding behind a screen name. What have YOU done lately?

    Peter is primarily a large scale illusion builder. His clients include nearly every grand Vegas act there is, and even more International ones.

    I agree that these levitations are indeed tiresome, but don't hate on the guy for joining in the method fad. These are hard times, and we all do what we can do to make money. If you don't like it, don't buy it…let the LL's (loser 'loyals') do that…

    I love some of his effects more than others, but ALWAYS respect the man for what he's done in magic mechanics. Peter came up with a wicked illusion of 12 candles on a wire, multi-leveled candelabra-beautiful for stage. Each candle was real, and ignition was at the performers precise control. The best part was that the candles were handed out as souveniers…

    His 'Iron Garrote' -chain through neck, was performed by Cwiss on an episode of MF (the one where he went through the shop window)…*shudder*

    He's a regular contributor to the green b, and even has his own honorary topic thread there.

    His seance creations 'Entity', and 'Witchboard', are a bizzarists dream.

    This man has payed his dues…and… is Canadian. (I say that cause we rock)

    YOU…(the person too chicken sh*t to link an e-mail or true identity to your screen name) should keep your blatantly rude, and uneducated 'opinions' to yourself.

    I am not defending anyone, but his opinion on Peter is sharred by many people in the magic community.
    It wasn't nice to say it here… but then again… I know many many many people who would agree with him.

    I was annoyed at 'Better Magic Please's' harshness. Defending Peter's magic was because I felt the need to after 'BMP's soured the thread with that crappy post…

    It consistently amazes me how people hiding behind false identities jump on bashing their peers. That overly abrasive post could have been expressed intelligently, creatively, and with SOME manner of respect. If not for Peter, then for the others who read this board.

    Do we live in a world of crap or can we take it down a notch, and just jive with SOME respect?

    Randi, I understand what you are saying, and to that I reply that I know many, many people that would disagree with him.

    You'll notice though, that I had no problem with your comment.
    Best,
