Re: MAGIC Live 2017?

It was hysterical when Mulliica did it. He would reach in, look perplexed, and say, "I think it's a CLUB." Still makes me smile.

Re: Camirand Academy No Longer Retailing

I wonder if they'll add my name to Gary Ouellet's book on the Pass, since he stole my Half a Jiggle Pass and printed it without my permission after he begged me to teach it to him while I was in Toronto working on the Project Magic book with David Copperfield.

Two different topics here. 1. I have all my books individually shrink-wrapped. There is a specific reason for this: when a stack of books is in the carton going from the printer to the fulfillment warehouse, the books will shift slightly and scuff the djs.

Re: Ambitious Riser

The routine in "On the Up and Up" alllows you to do a Rising Card routine with three freely chosen cards. The third comes up back toward audience and then visibly turns around. It looks exactly like a routine with a gimmicked deck, except you can borrow the deck. Hostler: why wouldn't peop...

In the real world, auction houses take 15% to 25% depending on the specific items and auction. It's not out of line. A lot of work and expense goes into putting on an auction.

Look through the Genii archive online for the issue which has Milt on the cover--it was in the last 10 years (Steve Bryant wrote the article). It's easy to scroll through the thumbnails of the covers and you'll find it in two minutes or so.

Two things:
