Nice video David, thanks for posting this. The effect works well in our dark and damp pubs in England!

Re: Magic -- Page by Page

This really is a superb book and in my 'Top Ten' published conjuring books, ever. An absolute pleasure to read and study from. You can almost hear Pat talking as you read! Now, that's real Magic. What a wonderful job by all involved and a true testament to Pat's great thinking. Thank you. I'd also h...

Re: The Digital Edition of the December Issue of Genii will be Available Tuesday

Arrived last Friday in Somerset, England. Great read, also really enjoyed the Tenyo demos online. My vote for ' Best Genii' of the year is the Thurston issue closely followed by the Erdnase issue. Anyone else have a favorite issue?

Hi Wolfgang Looking at the photo from ebay,(first time I've seen one), I was reminded of 'The Rope Mender' from Nelms' 'Magic and Showmanship'. I should imagine you would do the standard 'cut' bit for the C&R rope thus leaving a small piece tied around the centre, then, as the rope goes in the b...

Re: Darren Brown, Pure Effect

It's Derren.
The best thing to do is check out what the book is going for on Ebay. I don't mean the 'Buy it now' listings but watch them and see what they go for end of auction. I'd say on average around 100.
Hope this helps.

Re: Proper Use of the Pass

As far as I am concerned it is the best card control. (cover excluded).

However, I believe that effect and presentation are paramount.

Re: Proper Use of the Pass

Hi Zack,

I also love the Classic Pass but the mechanics of it are not as important as your surroundings. If you can perform the pass in a natural manner it will suffice. It really is dependent on what you want to achieve, and the effect you want to portray.
