Here’s an impromptu spoon bending session by Ron Nagy at The Knickerbocker in Linesville.
Peg and I persuaded Ron to bend some spoons for us and I had my camera handy, so I made the most of it. I’m sure you’ll be more than impressed by my video editing (lol)
I had heard Ron did this Spoon Bending thing, it was all new to me at the time. I wanted to see him do it but I kept missing out on it. I had seen spoons he bent at The Knickerbocker because he had gifted them to Peg and they were on display on the first floor. Those spoons looked like they had been in a blender or a Tornado or something.
On this particular afternoon Ron had just driven in from Lily Dale and Peg and I were chatting with him at the coffee bar. I brought up the subject of Spoon Bending and after a little conversation Ron said he would give it a go. My understanding is the spoon bender must be in a reasonably relaxed state of mine and have the energy and concentration to successfully do the bending. Anyway, Ron said he would give it a go, I grabbed my camera and we off the to races. The video below is the result. At the very end I pan the camera to Peg and she makes a statement. Unrehearsed, she is soooo cool!
Here are the spoons Ron bend at The Knickerbocker, then gifted them to Peg Knickerbocker.
