Re: Packet tricks / R&S

Apart from "Small But Deadly" as Ian mentioned earlier (published by H & R Books in Texas) there is also the sequel that appeared last year, "Still Small, Still Deadly." Between the two books you'll have plenty of packet trick information to keep you going for awhile. In the ...

Re: Al Smith's new (?) Magazine, LaBal - Check it out

Re: "While all three were happily sipping tea, Ken suddenly reached across the table, grabbed Bob by the lapels, yanked him up and screamed, "You bastard, you made my wife pregnant!" When I heard the story from Bob years back, I remember it that the place was full and they had not bee...

Re: Jacks, Queens, And Kings

I wouldn't have thought anyone would routine similar effects together like this Chris, but I must say, I like it. It builds and has an amusing punch line.

Re: Pandora's Box: Jay Sankey

Many years back I used to use the Kane version quite a lot. Always got a great response. From Kent's original review (although since mentioned how mechanics differ) one important difference of Sankey's version seems to be: "You have complete control over whether shaking the box makes it rattle ...

Re: Akross (DVD) by Sean Fields

Actually, I did pick this up, Bill. Interesting, as you say for those interested in the plot. But hardly 'the ultimate cards across' as descrived on the DVD box. The title effect is the best of the versions given, and somewhat bold. I would worry about spectators remembering the face cards, though f...

Re: Two packet effect

I believe it is mentioned that Avis originated this grip for doing the count with jumbo cards in the Elmsley books by Mr. Minch. Interesting supposition Jonathon. Or maybe he changed his handling after it appeared in print? From the time the routine was originated to when it first appeared in print ...

Re: Dutch Looper / English Monte / English Three Card Trick

I remember as a young guy being fooled by Ken's handling for The Dutch Looper even though I was aware of that type of gaff. John Oakley caught me with it. As giveaways and in magic sets of course, one simply shows three cards with a queen in the middle and turns the packet down asking someone to pic...

Re: Backflip and Flipped out(Small but Deadly)

Re: "I had also emailed you regarding the diplacement of cards after every Elmsley count in the effect "Backflip". Have you got any further information on that ?" No. I described how I dealt with that in Small But Deadly. So, I was happy with what I did. But I recall you saying y...

Re: Vampire Card Trick

Hi Jonathon, no, my first point of call was simply a Google search just now. I vaguely recall a dealer ad in the past several years so think it is/was a marketed effect, but could also be someone's own idea on vampires. Not sure on the mirror bit, because vampires have no reflection. Another way of ...

Re: Vampire Card Trick

Just a search on Google turns up several demonstrations of it, maybe e-mailing one of the demonstrators may get an answer. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.metacafe.com/watch/573486/vampire_cards/">http://www.metacafe.com/watch/573486/vampire_cards/</a><!-- m --> As can be seen in that...

Re: Force of a body part?

Cards seems a good idea as in Al Spackman's Voodoo. Originally in the Gen magazine then "The Art of Close Up Magic". And various dealers market it. An early David Regal marketed effect for an injury was 'The Doctor is In" put out through Tannen. But other than a force, it can be a lim...

Re: Dingle/Walton Oil and Water

I don't claim the handling as mine, because it's not. I've been doing it over 20 years on and off but truly am not sure whose it is. In the restaurant, for close up, rather than a glass of water, I have a little wooden marker with wavy lines on I drop onto the water packet every time I turn that pil...

Re: Dingle/Walton Oil and Water

Sorry it wasn't so clear, Kent. I was suggesting your presentation was effective because the post I quoted referred to a six card version. Re:"I worked in a magic shop when those symbols were the rage. I think the preponderance of them, in that era, has soured me forever." I can't argue wi...

Re: Dingle/Walton Oil and Water

Some guy wrote this book. I learned a trick from it. I've only been doing this for 30 years. I should be better at it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-EiHtd8UxY Anybody ever heard of this guy who wrote the book? May be I make a mistake but this version with 6 cards, (two three of a kind) was descr...

Re: Backflip and Flipped out(Small but Deadly)

Hi Swami. I recall your e-mail to me a while back pointing out that you had "Flipped Out" and that it had the same number of cards. You will be credited with the correction in "Small But Deadly 2 (working title) which I have just started writing. The information about the effect came ...
