I couldn't agree more. If you can also find a group of magicians around your town. i.e. IBM or SAM group. These are the best your gonna get now that the brick and mortar shops really no longer exist. There is something to be said for those shops that are still open. Most of the guys in the shops just love to do what they do! As well there is no substitution for seeing magic live be it close up or a really good stage show like Believe, or David Copperfield, or what Lance used to do!... here is a link to some Mazzini live performances both stage and street!
