This is not to compromise our vision, it is to help us reach it. As a performer, you should see criticism as a positive thing. Clearly you want it from people whom you respect, and people who understand what you are trying to achieve. As long as you know what you are trying to achieve, you will, by practising this detachment, see whether you are getting closer to your goals or not. Decent, intelligent criticism is pure gold to us: value it highly and seek it out where you can. Cold and Nasty As magicians, we manipulate.
That is predominantly why I hate them so much. To be proud of one’s performance when one is having to shout to be heard over the crass and the ignorant is a very rare thing. (I may sound disparaging about these businessmen. ) There is almost nothing that can be done. However, you must remain true to something. Upon approaching a table, you should make a beeline for a lady, hoping to find a more respectful and less awkward person to involve in your magic. Introduce yourself and shake hands with a few people, and just force the atmosphere at the table to a more respectful one.
Cold and Nasty As magicians, we manipulate. Manipulation is generally seen as a dirty word, but it is not. Tit is a dirty word, and to trombone somebody is also an unsavoury expression. Manipulation, however, is a neutral expression. Teachers manipulate their pupils. Therapists manipulate their clients (although therapists are the very cock-cheese of Satan and anything they do is as dirty as dirty can be). We all manipulate each other and play out gentle power-struggles in our everyday conversations.
