Re: Hand Maintenance

any successful explorations using DMSO to bring something useful into the skin? Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) has the unique quality of giving one intense garlic breath moments after application. If that isn't much of a deterrent, then remember that DMSO can penetrate the skin, and carry all sorts of s...

Re: Bicycle poker card box

I agree. Difficult to use the case as a "holdout," but I have gotten away with it. You do have to pay attention and keep the half moon side down or toward you.

Re: Bruce Cervon Castle Notebooks Volume 5 !

Irrespective of what anyone has done in the past, to know something is wrong and continuing the practice, just because someone else did it before, is no excuse to do something wrong again.

Re: Card To Wallet

Francis Carlyle's "Homing Card," from Stars of Magic is a stunning effect, and doesn't require a wallet, or envelope. Bill Malone produces a selected card from an imaginary pocket. Hmmmm. It would appear that the key factors do not include a wallet per se, but rather the belief that the lo...

Re: Genii Speaks (July, 08)

It really breaks my heart that magicians would rather spend $29.95 for one lousy trick on DVD than $40.00 on a book that will teach them 25 or 30 effects. I would venture to say that most of the people putting out videos today learned their craft from books.

Re: Lefthanded

I, too, am a right-brained performer, however, I perform card magic in as a right-handed person would. Since my left hand is dominant, and most sleights are initiated with the left hand, my theory was why retrain my right hand? I figured the learning curve would be shorter. I don't know if it's true...
