Re: Roger Klause Sun and Moon Question

Lance Pierce explains a little more about the set used for this routine on the Friends of Roger Klause video. He also teaches the routine. Connie Hadden made the set for Roger. Todd still makes sets that can be used to do this routine. I use my UWC set for it as it allows me to do it with Silver or ...

Re: State of Magic

If you say just "o" they will look at you like what? If you say "O H" then the proper reply would be "I O" for many of us living here in this state or former Ohioan's Allan Ackerman visits his family in Ohio as stated before. Cleveland, Ohio has quite a magical history....

Re: Interested in books about faro shuffle

Try out H&R Magic Booksellers.
They are online. They have a ton of used magic books listed and you can always call them for titles your looking for.
I got my copies of the Fulves books you listed from them.

Re: The Essential Sol Stone

He has a great style. He was the person who told several of us something that has stuck with me for 35yrs. He said you need to know when to slow the magic down. Slow magic can be impossible magic.

Re: Original Card Control to the Top

good job. It looks very smooth and not rushed at all.
Good magic should look graceful and the moves not seen. You accomplished that..good job.

Re: Viking Haenchen 4 Cup Wood Turned Cups & Balls Limited to 36 sets, c.1990s

Those look like the same Cups my friend Murray had in his shop in 1990, when I started to visit the new shop. I think they were made in the late 80's. He said that he had gotten his set directly from the owner of Viking as a gift. They are astounding cups and worth every cent. I wish I had the money...

Re: Little Man Demo

I do not like this demo due to the fact it look like magnets or magnetism is the simple answer to this effect.

I also do not think it is worth the price if this is even close to how you need to do the effect each time.
