How Do You Make This?

This will be a bit difficult to explain. What is the chemical/material used to make flaps on cards that spring back into position? There are several tricks that use this "flap principle" - including The Visual Poker Change seen in Shade. To emphasize, I'm not just looking to scotch-tape th...

Re: A Hypothetical Website That I May or May Not Have Discovered

The question as to whether watching these videos constitutes "stealing" is an uninteresting one, from my perspective. The question as to what magicians will do when confronted with a library of magic videos that play at the press of a button - particularly in a situation where they remain ...

A Hypothetical Website That I May or May Not Have Discovered

Let's say, hypothetically, you stumbled across a non-US site housing a library of magic videos. No lengthy downloads . . . just press play, then watch everything from Kaufman On The Pass to the entire collection of eLLusionist and Theory11 tutorials. Would you watch these videos? (Be Honest) Would y...

What Are the Best Thumb Tips?

What are the best thumb tips on the market? I'm looking to do some close-up bill transformations.

(Please no lectures on how you used a bright orange thumb tip and fooled everyone in your magic club)

Ed Marlo Biographical Info Needed

Can someone point me to a link or biography that extensively details the life of Ed Marlo?

The short biographical blurbs on the internet are lacking, i.e. did he have a "regular" job?

Can Anyone Help?

I posted in the Marketing forum but have not garnered any replies. Basically, I'd like to start a show on the East Coast. Think Ricky Jay, but following the model of Steve Cohen (i.e. performing in a hotel/private dining room but seated at a table of 8-12) I have never done this before and could rea...

Orange County, CA

I'm visiting Orange County, CA from the East Coast and will be here for a few months while on school break. I'm not particularly skilled in sleight-of-hand - I'm just now making my way through Royal Road - but I'd like to meet with fellow magicians once a week to discuss magic and presentation and c...

Help in Starting a Show

I would like to perform close-up magic in small, intimate theater environment here in New England; card magic leaning toward the serious side (Think Ricky Jay, not comedy magic). Any tips on getting started? Some difficulties that I am facing: 1. Venue (Most theaters are too large. Maybe private din...
