Looking for name of effect

I am looking for the name of the effect where the Magician has the spectator select one of several books or magazines. The Magician then riffles through the pages and the spectator has him stop on a page and remember it. Then the Magician has the spectator sit on the book or place it somewhere. A sh...

There once was a large egg named Mabel,
Who tried to stand but wasn't able.
But her problem, you see.
Could be solved One, Two, Three,
If you first sprinkle salt on the table. :D

Re: Genii digital content

Re: Genii digital content

I don't have a problem subscribing. I was comparing and contrasting how Magic does it. You prove that you purchased that specific month's issue and like Magic you gain access to the digital content.

Question about Tenyo Billscape

I have been watching Billscape currently on ebay for crazy prices. I own Billscape but I lost the pin that comes with the trick. I believe it had a loop on the end. Does anyone know if this is a regular pin or a special Tenyo pin? Thank you for your help.

Re: The Incredibly Stinky Burt Wonderstone?

I recently saw the movie, It was all right but could have been much better. For an excellent Magician buddy movie check out Magicians with Alan Arkin, a much better movie in my opinion.

Ambitious card where you bend the card
