Re: MAGIC magazine & iPad - no longer ?

I spoke to Magic Magazine, and they confirmed that they've taken their app down from the Apple store. They plan to introduce some new format in the next few weeks. Maybe Stan got tired of giving Apple 30% of each sale? Anyway, if you have the old app on your iPad, it's still usable. I just downloade...

Re: Ricky Jay on The Tonight Show March 31

I’ve become obsessed with the 10-card poker deal, and I put the blame squarely on Bob Farmer. I recently ran across his 5-part series on the topic in the January-May 1994 issues of Magic Magazine (the April issue included a list of over 60 references to the trick if you really want to go down the ra...

Re: Ricky Jay on The Tonight Show March 31

Jimmy Fallon played the perfect foil during the routine - he let Ricky do his job and it was entertaining and funny. If Ricky tried this with David Letterman, Dave would spend the entire time asking him why he couldn't take one of the center cards.

Re: Ricky Jay on The Tonight Show March 31

Whenever I'd see a magician as a guest of either Letterman or Leno, it would remind me of just how much I missed Johnny Carson. I have a feeling Jimmy Fallon is going to be more like Carson, though, just gracious and fun. Regarding the extras on the Deceptive Practices DVD, my favorite was the autom...

Re: Moleskine Journal ideas?

I love the idea of hollowing out a Moleskine, Dan, it would be a great way to carry small props as you suggest (the Major Arcana of a Tarot deck come to mind).

Moleskine Journal ideas?

Just curious if there are any other Moleskine journal fans around here, and how you might use them with your magic. They've become so ubiquitous, it would be a shame not to exploit them in some devious fashion. Right now I just carry a 3-card monte set and some extra Loops in the inner pocket of min...

Re: Justin's levitation

I watched Jimmy Fingers perform his levitation (if we are indeed talking about the same thing) in the lobby of a hotel during a magic convention in Texas. It was one of the coolest things I've ever seen in magic.
