Re: The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox

Pete McCabe finally received his Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox. I know this because after Pete read the book, he had a wonderful idea for a routine which he sent me. I spent the morning figuring the method out and it will appear in Addendum #8 to be released next week.

Thanks Matt. It's the DEFCON patter that speeds it along.

Addendum #8 (next week) features the DEal Finding CONverger system in three levels: DEFCON 3, DEFCON 2 and DEFCON 1, the latter being the most dangerous level. Stay tuned and make sure your fallout shelter is well-stocked with playing cards.

Re: The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox

Yes, there is a connection: I provide a smorgasbord of ideas for card cannibals to feast upon.

I once did a pitch for a horror movie, the title and cutline of which was:

CANNIBAL BLOODBATH: Your parents were right--the big city will eat you alive.

It didn't sell.
