Re: Persi Diaconis Radio Interview

Fun interview. In terms of the unknown card trick, these days I don't have much interest in work that is unpublished by the choice of the creator. Goodness knows there's no shortage of great stuff already on my shelf to which I could devote my time.

Re: Carney 2013 Returns!!!

In short, while I would have preferred DVD's/downloadable files, the less than optimal delivery system was not a deal breaker for me personally. YMMV, of course. Sure, everyone has to make that call on their own. Is the quality of the material worth it even light of a broken/lacking/end user unfrie...

Re: Underground Playing Cards: Diamond Edition-- My first KS

How much does USPCC usually charge per deck for their minimum order of 2500? Assuming a fairly standard customized print run (no special inks and so on). More than $2/deck?

I wonder if Steinmeyer re-purposed the rig he designed for Copperfield? It would seem possible seeing as how the carpet never leaves the stage.

Web browsing (windows 7, firefox) of the issues isn't perfect, but it's ok. The search, however, as mentioned before, remains an exercise in frustration. Losing the search data every time one goes to to one result is something I think/hope they can fix.
