Re: Source for this 'force'

You are welcome Jeff. I know how frustrating it can be when an effect pops into the mind and you search your library endlessly. Too me, that's the real magic of this forum. Thanks Genii.

Re: Source for this 'force'

The effect is called The Voodoo card. It can be found in Guy Hollingworth's book, Drawing Room Deceptions page 14 ..the prologue. Also, see The art of Astonishment by Paul Harris, vol. 3, page 303. The effect is based on a Steranko routine. Hope this helps.

Re: Richard Osterlind Turns Up in the Strangest Places

Glad you posted that Richard. It was actually a fantastic read. I was very glad mr. Osterlind provided info. They both died young really. Nice to have this history about those in the performing business.

Re: B'Wave

I simply love this effect. I have put in the hours of study that it really needs for years now. Here is just one thing that I always do and say when the climax happens: " it just goes to show how amazing the human mind works. The lady over there chose the queen of ---. We are all kind of guided...

Re: Magnet through aluminum tube

Field sobriety test by Paul green. Elmwood magic. I did a Halloween show with it based on a witch test. The lenz law principle can easily be masked by presentation. I am sure I am not the only one to think of producing a giant ball bearing falling out of the tube at the end. Best, Russ Raven Polizzi

Re: Help Us!

How about THE EUPHORIA WALLET

Or The ROACH WALLET?

The roach sneaks in the smallest of places, and definitely surprises!

No need for a dangerous animal .....

Re: Lou Gallo

He was feeling good and was going out to eat with family 3 x/ week. To see his library was a treasure. It literally took up the entire hou...
