Re: Best source for in the hands out faro

I highly recommend Michael Closes's cd. I went from not really believing I could ever learn it--to complete confidence with the sleight. All as a result of Michael's cd.

Re: The Magic of Ascanio: The Structural Conception of Magic

I ordered the book from Hocus Pocus and it came yesterday in the mail.

The book is so good--I can't put it down.

Re: Question: Signed Complete Works of Derek Dingle

I just received a copy of the Dingle Commemorative edition of Genii (May 2004). I ordered it because I wanted to learn the Stuart Gordon double lift. I was shocked when I turned to page 44 and saw a picture of Derek Dingle signing my copy of his Complete Works--with my childhood buddy (Guillermo San...

Re: Trouble reading books

Maxrod88, I understand how you feel. Here are some of the coping mechanisms that I have used over the years: Get a sense of a particular effect you want to learn out of one of the books you have--this forum can help you with that. Then go right to that effect and spend time with it. Don't try to rea...

Re: Flaco

Doug,

Wow--your post brought back vivid memories of Flaco talking about his son doing three card monte on the streets. He was very proud of him.

Re: Flaco

Richard, I'm not surprised to hear that he actually helped you move. Flaco was a take action guy who thrived on connecting with others. He sold me my copy of Greater Magic. He was always selling something--but he always gave a lot in return! I'd love to be able to piece together more of his story. H...

Flaco

Flaco was a well known Manhattan magician in (I believe) the 70s and 80s. Anyone have any good Flaco stories? What ever happened to him? I didn't know him well--but every time I ran into him at Tannen's--he was very generous with help, advice and knowledge. He seemed to be a wealth of knowledge and ...

Re: Lou Tannen - Memories

I have fond memories of going there as a young boy. I grew up in Manhattan and started going to Tannen's when I was around 12 years old. On any given day--Frank Garcia, Harry Lorayne, Derek Dingle, Ken Krenzel and Meir Yedid could be found in front of or behind the counter performing magic. I believ...

Re: Tannen's Magic

I had a really positive customer service experience at Tannens last Thursday night.
