Bookmarks of the rich and famous

Net celebs open up their browsers and share the secrets of their bookmarks with the Intemet Magazine readers. This month it’s everyone’s favourite spoon-bender…

Uri Geller

Having shot to fame using the power of his mind to mess with the cutlery drawers of TV viewers, Uri has put the paranormal on the map. As well as football psychology, he’s recently become a devotee of the Net where many of his areas of interest find a natural home. “For a parapsychologist, the Net is a revelation,” he enthuses. “It has ended intellectual isolation, and put researchers in touch with thousands of like-minded people.”

Uri’s five favourite Web sites…

1) Mamma “All my research starts here. It’s not the fastest search engine, or the most stable, but it combines findings from Yahoo, Infoseek and Excite.”

2) The X-Zone “Just the best graphics I’ve ever encountered. If you’re into alien dreams and teteporting UFOs, visit Rob McConell’s paranormal pages. They’re based on his Canadian radio show.”

3) Postcards “Email in colour. A slowish upload, but once you get there, there’s a choice of hundreds of virtual postcards, which you can dispatch for free to any email address.”

4) The Koestler Institute

“Well-organised site explaining the work of the Koestler Parapsychology Institute at the University of Edinburgh. Online experiments, fascinating archive and loads of links.”

5) The Aviary “An informal network of US Government and military officials with a shared fascination for UFOs. So the conspiracy theory goes, its 12 members are dedicated to creating a smokescreen around CIA misuse of extra-terrestrial technology.”

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Absolutely amazing”

Mick Jagger

“Truly incredible”

Sir Elton John

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”

“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”

Clint Eastwood

“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
