Re: The Miracle ACAAN // Interesting Story

"the response has been overwhelmingly brilliant,..." Are those responses from relatives and freinds? Certainly not from RATIONAL (as Richard puts it) human beings. Please don't insult our inteligence, my brain cannot take your CAAN (not ACAAN) anymore. I'm having a mental breakdown. :eek: ...

"I think it's better for others to see the negative reviews along with the positive."


What POSITIVE reviews? Who, when, where? Am I missing something?

Re: ...and now what is the best ACAAN ?

If you want the best method, learn the original from David Berglas. It's difficult, but very good. Failing that, Marc Paul's "Affected by Berglas" is excellent. Finally, Asi Wind's method in his lecture notes (with DVD), Chapter One, is very good. Most of the methods that people are selli...

Re: ...and now what is the best ACAAN ?

I've just purchased the item directly from the inventor, whose name is Tommaso Guglielmi. I'll report further when it arrives (within 24 hours, so says the web page). Hi Richard, I'm still hoping to get a review from you! Unless it's so terrible that you can't bring yourself to do so. Again, I love...

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

But Bob, there are other ways to retube your Mesa Boogie MK IV, and I'm not saying that your way is bad but there are definitely easier and faster ways. I retubed mine with a PT-6969 V. That way, you don't even have to mess with the sockets. Just my two cents!

Re: ...and now what is the best ACAAN ?

Ok. I admit that this version has a major limitation. My best version employs a stooge; my wife! After a card is called, I ask her to name any number between 1 and 52. If I need her to name 37....I'll say "it can be 49 or 12 or 16 or 3...any number." all she has to do is remember the first...

Re: ...and now what is the best ACAAN ?

If the deck is not in full view, I'll assume that multiple decks are used. Since I like to perform without a jacket or bulky pants, this would not be my cup of tea. I'm not into deck switches either. Also, I find that the wording..."I haven't touched the deck....it's been in full view before yo...

Hi Yiyong, It is not, nor does it need to be. However, that being said there is a way to perform it where the deck is in view but the only people that care about that are magicians.

How about pure chance, that would be the simplest explanation!

So, is he using a stooge who can read the number on a paper stuck to his front zipper pants or some elaborate high tech secretive Taiwanese invention?

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

Simple, but I feel that I have to reiterate. The first time the host throws the ball, it doesn't matter who catches it as any card can be called by the catcher and no stooge is necessary. The camera shows the ball trajectory landing clearly on a random spectator (3:12-3:16). The second time the host...

Besides using conferderates (rose thrower and catcher), what about the video editing never showing the rose catcher in the action of catching the rose? The misderiction occurs when the rose is thrown on a cameraman. The spectators (at least on video) never see any catching of the roses. It appears s...
