Convention still going on. I only went for the saturday and will write a brief overview when I am feeling better, got the flu at the moment.

Suffice to say Carlos Vacquera was absolutely amazing, but the general organisation could have been better, and i think the Ipswich show sounded a lot better value for money, I will certainly be going there next year.

Yeah he has declined to make it available, as in he has no plans :(
I would buy it as well.

LOL @ your ;)
I'm just not that pushy, maybe I'll just start collecting signatures and send them off to the government.

And with a wave of his hand...

Well, I've been a bit AWOL recently - LOTS of 'life-changing' stuff has kept me well and truly busy as hell...

But, all I will say to YT, BaB and Bananafish... 'hey, hey, wait a minute Mr Postman...'

:wink:

:!:
Is Godlike 2 strong a word?

I hope all this life changing stuff has been a positive m8 (it always is in the end but it doesn't always feel that way at the time) and I hope all is good with you.

ps- I'm not sure I am getting my point across on the board, so just in case, God Bless Derren !

Just to let you all know, this is coming out on DVD, according to Derren's website. The price is still £35 for the double DVD, and the remainder of the VHS's will go for £20. The website says it should be out by the end of November. I think now is the time for me to purchase.

As diftz1000 pointed out, the DVD version of this is now available from Derren's website.

I ordered mine shortly before Christmas and it arrived in about 3 days. The content appears the same as the video and the picture quality is fine, and yes, it is as good as everyone says!

Hello

After reading everyone raving about this how can I not order it. So.....what exactly have i ordered?

I am presuming it is in a similar format to regular magic Dvds you see the performance followed by an explaination or is it more complicated than that?

You've almost hit the nail on the head.

DPB is a set of performances, with explanations, plus weird 'Derrenisms'.

All in all, a great piece of magic, worth cherishing.

I only have the Video version, but I am sure the new DVD version is mightily handy too. (Please dont tell me there's bonuses with the DVD, otherwise I'll have to shell out again :(

I'm really REALLY looking forward to getting it I hope it comes quickly as it is my last purchase in a while in a vain attempt to gain control of my CUPS.

I'd love to get this, but $75 seems a bit steep for a DVD. Even the VHS version would cost me nearly $50.

Actually Demetri, its $71.16 so you would have more money left! :wink:

(And the VHS is only $44.47, you were way off :lol:)

Note to self: Why am I saying only. I can't buy it. I have no money!

Demitri,
It's a DOUBLE DVD!
Nearly three hours long.

Still not cheap, but I don't think it's particularly expensive.
