Re: Berglas Effects Book for Sale

I believe he only watched the third DVD.

The auction has closed with 12 "watchers" and no bidders. I think he's going to put it back up on eBay for $300 "Buy it Now".

Equally, Steve, if you didn't want people to know you lack experience with managing real people why did you write it, and why are you now reacting so poorly? For the record, I happen to know that Steve Hook has performed for "real people" literally thousands of times over the past 30 year...

I've been ordering gaffed cards from Neil for over 30 years. He had all the hard to find stuff - Jerrys, Golden Nugget, etc. It was a pleasure knowing him. A truly great guy.

Re: Magic Trailers

Guess my age is showing, but I think magic trailers have gotten a bit ridiculous. I've seen a few lately that made me laugh out loud. I ended up turning them off before I even saw anything that resembled magic. IMO, the best magic trailer I've seen lately is Bro Gilbert's (any relation?) Deep 3 trai...

I've been a PH fan since the late 70's, so I'm not exactly impartial. But, I think the production, design, music, non-verbal explanations, and interviews are all first rate.

Re: High praise for McCabe's "Scripting Magic"

I agree with Dave. This is a wonderful book. I had forgotten how great the script is to the "41 Cent Miracle" on Michael Ammar's ETMMM. And, I just might have to try David Regal's "hotel" presentation for his Disposable Deck.

Re: What's the big deal with the Frank Garcia books?

I would have killed for the Ammar "ETMCM" series back in the 70's and 80's. I actually had to read and sift through all those books to find the real gems. It was hard work, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. :-)

Actually, I think it was the fact that DF cards, or in this case DB cards, were a rarity at the time. At least that's the way I remember the story, which I think Vernon recounted on the Videonics tapes.

Re: Does size matter?

I stand corrected. Sorry about that. I wasn't aware that cards in the UK were mostly bridge size. I do think there's merit in the idea that working with poker size cards enables you to handle any size deck though. But, Pete's right. Lay people just don't notice. Unfortunately, I have never seen Jerr...
