This wonderful magic should be on DVD. I really love the MAGIC of the independent show's (Roman numerable ) and would really want them on DVD. Please Mr. Copperfield a magician of your creative and sexy magic may not come again, allow for us to relive the magic on DVD! I can't tell you what wondrous illusions you created on top of scaffolding as you walked into a thin screen only to disappear. Or when you let us all watch you fly, were ever can we find the child inside and remind ourselves there is still magic in a world gone crazy. I can say no more than I already have as to why your magic should be on DVD, can you give me any reason why not?
