Remember the Diamond Jim lectures
start tomorrow night in Auckland

Message by Sean Taylor (Aust)

Diamond Jim Tyler lectured in Sydney on Thursday to a full house at Taylor's Magic Shop and I just wanted to take a moment to encourage my friends across the Tasman to attend his lectures in Auckland, Palmerston North and Christchurch this coming week.
This is the first time I have met Diamond Jim Tyler but he truly is a really nice guy with a genuine passion for people and for magic.

Rarely have I seen so much useable and commercial material in one evening. Jim had us laughing and amazed from the very first effect (something with a Red Bull which I'd expect will ensure an increase in sales of that soft drink!).

Some 20 or so effects were shown and it was obvious throughout that Jim is a 'worker' and thinks deeply about how to make his magic straightforward, entertaining and easy to follow. His tips and bits with the ring and string were clearly the result of thousands of performances. He has a pleasing and engaging style and is not 'in your face' like some of today's hyped up, over enthusiastic close-up workers. (Some of whom would do better to do tricks with Red Bull rather than drink it).

A sure sign of a good evening is an empty dealer table and Jim's very reasonably priced books, DVDs and tricks were all gone by the end of the night. He has extra stocks to collect en route so you guys don't miss out in NZ.

Diamonds shine and are rare and valuable. An evening with this much shine and this much value is a rare thing too. Get along - you won't regret it. Sean Taylor
