I attended the Greg Wilson free lecture sponsored by the Conjuring Community last night.
It was a good time.  Not just because of the magic either.  There was a lot of fun discussion, stories, banter, etc.  

It gave a peek into the personality of Wilson, and I found him to be very funny and interesting.  He clearly loves magic.  And he does a pretty good job of explaining his thoughts.

If you missed it, I think they might be replaying it.  I wasn't clear as to whether only people that had registered for the first viewing would be included or not.

I do know they had more than 3,000 signed up and only had the capacity to allow around 1,000 to attend.  That is all the technology could accomodate.

I am not a member of their community but it sounds interesting and probably well worth joining if you have the resources and the time.

Thought you should know.

Edit:  Just checked email and found this announcement.

Sorry for that.  Here is the verbiage:

I just wanted to send you a quick note with my apologies if you were not able to join us this evening.

Frankly, we are overwhelmed by the sheer number of magicians from around the world that wanted to join us.

We have been preparing for this event for over a week.
But unfortunately, the “room” filled up well beyond anything we could have anticipated.

As soon as the event is over—we’ll find a way to make a replay available for you as quickly as possible.

Watch for an email from us tomorrow with details.

If you did get locked out of the meeting, we want you to know that we are as disappointed as you are—and we’re going to take care of it shortly.

Please be careful and stay safe.

Talk soon,
Aaron Fisher
Co-Founder, Conjuror Community

I, like many on this site am at a point in my "magic life" where I don't really need any new effects.  I have more than enough to keep me busy.  In fact, I wish I could remember some!  That's another story.
What I truly enjoy is the discussion.  The reasoning behind why a magician chose to do something.  The reasoning that particular choices were made, such as the length of the effect, the length of the routine, etc.  

So what I really appreciated from last night, in addition to some interesting effects, was just the discussion around the effects and magic in general.  Worth a listen if you have the chance.

I always watch the CC stuff after the fact -- I understand there's some stuff that goes on after they stop the recording, but I work all day and if I'm watching a session like that for hours in the evening, it gets cranky around these parts 😉

I was about to cancel my CC subscription when I saw Greg Wilson was going to speak, so hung around for that one.

Some of the best discussion is towards the end where Greg and David Gripenwaldt discuss creativity.

Was this the Encore Living Room Lecture of 25 March 2020?  As always, some great content from Greg Wilson in that!

Here is the place it can be viewed (free for a few days only, I believe):

It's been up a few days already. Today I received an email saying that the video is going down tonight. If you want to see it, you'd better hurry before it disappears...
