Re: Stand Up Deck Switch

I love this thread. I'm also looking for a stand-up deck switch that does not require a jacket or pockets, I'll be doing this on stage, so there are other locations where it could be switched. From looking at this discussion, I guess it's down to the Tommy Wonder method and/or looking at Ackerman's ...

Re: Philippe Petit performs a Coin illusion on the Oscars

OMG I LOVE Philippe. Man on Wire was such a great documentary and we're so lucky that he did that so that future generations would know his genius.

Re: When is it "imitation and when is it "Theft?"

That is REALLY shady that the Twins are filing copyright infringement on Marco, who is an established original inventive mind. Sheesh.

Re: Ted Lesley has passed away.

That is bad news. Another great magic thinker is gone. I hate to repeat what everyone else above said, but it's so true. What a loss.

Re: Women In Magic

Paula Paul, one of my mentors quoted magician Kathy Diamond, by saying that it's weird for female magicians to get together because you're always told "you're the only one, you're the only one, you're the only female magician I know," and that sort of pits the chicks against each other. Ra...

Re: Women In Magic

Naphtalia, I've participated in many magic boards over the years and I'll tell you, this topic is such a ridiculous non-issue, of women in magic, it's as ridiculous as starting a thread on men in magic. It's just a ploy for attention and it's a huge waste of time. You can never change people's minds...

Re: Table Lifters

Don't harsh my mellow boys. Never say never.
The answer is yes you can do a seance with the losander table, it's all in the presentation.
That said, I combine other techniques as well and use different tables too.

Re: Table Lifters

I always thought it would be so easy to discard the ol' table lifter apparatus and just use Losander's table, any model you like, as it appears to be so fair and you don't have to load yourself down. If you need details on this, PM me, but I think it's pretty self explanatory. If you insist on doing...

Re: Bob Brown Passed Away this morning

He was my very first magic teacher and got me excited about magic because he didn't see me as a gender and he was just a pure nice old guy who I trusted enough that I let him hold my hands when he taught me the Elmsley count and hot rod. He would be the first and everlasting wonderful impression of ...
