Re: Rock, Paper, Millions by Michael Weber

I suppose, then, that I'm confused as to why it's being sold without mention of a specialty apparatus only available from Michael Weber.

Everything is a Remix

Not sure if this has made its way to the forum before, but I think it's a very interesting talk that certainly applies to our craft. Ladies and Gentlemen, thoughts?

Re: Cups and Balls ala Count Arthur Strong

There's a real simple beauty to this. I love the fact that there is no 'proving'. The magic is implied, and inferred, by the circumstances. Audience assumptions over sleights and showy proving procedures. No cups are actually turned toward us to be shown empty. We simply assume it by the way in whic...

Re: Real Secrets Becoming Real Dead Gone!

I never joined 'Real Secrets', though I have performed the sales receipt effect and the 'City Walk' trick that were included in a past issue of 'Genii'. The 2nd was for my girlfriend, and she loved it. Very fun real-world thing to do for someone. I'd even arranged to do it long-distance, via an inst...

Re: 3 Coins and a Shotglass

Is the half dollar expanded shell a standard piece with CSB? I recently purchased a very nice (but very expensive) CSB from Jamie Schoolcraft, but it did not include a half dollar expanded shell.

Re: Half Half Man ... Your Thoughts?

I've not yet seen Slava's Snowshow (it will be playing in my town in a week or so), only the clip Tom provided. In that clip, Slava seems to borrow from Copperfield with the appearance of his younger self. Copperfield did exactly this with his 'Snow'. Of course, going back further, I don't believe I...

Believe me, not only could you still give 'The Reformation' away on VHS, you could likely still sell it for quite a lot. There were only 50 copies extant, and, to my knowledge, no one ever started illegally mass-producing them, or even made a pirated digital file available. Everyone was quite protec...

Can't say that I disagree with a single thing that you wrote, erdnasephile. It's still the best piece-by-piece torn and restored card, in my opinion.
