Re: Street Magic Magazine

I could be horribly, horribly wrong, but I think it's easy to understand his problem. If you start with the premise that "the secret/method is the magic", then I think his issue with what he saw is clear. What else could there possibly be to performing magic anyway? ;) Like I said, could b...

Re: Thread About Assumptions

Well, I must admit...the unconscious assumptions really work, and work well. I unconsciously (or consciously...which is unfortunate) assumed that I read this thread here. In either case, I had conviction. It was the world of difference between not knowing if this thread was here, versus my knowing t...

Re: Thread About Assumptions

Thanks for all your help on this, Dustin; but, none of these threads are the one I was looking for.

Perhaps the next time they are on this forum, Mike or Curtis might recap the high points of the thread.

Thread About Assumptions

A while ago, there was a thread in the Genii Forum where Mike Close and (I believe) Curtis Kam, among others, were discussing Mike Close's Workers 5 chapter about Assumptions. I have searched and cannot find that old thread. Does anyone remember this or have a way of finding it? They were specifical...

Re: Can someone help me identify this ring and string effect?

Thanks, Pete.

Is it located in any literature anywhere? Perhaps a book on Slydini material?

Can someone help me identify this ring and string effect?

I was severely confounded by this effect and I would like to practice and rehearse it myself. I will describe it as I saw and remember it, hopefully someone will let me know a source for this effect. The magician cuts a long length of string from a spool, probably 5-6 feet. He then asks the spectato...

Giobbi's Genii Session and Robert-Houdin Quote

In Roberto Giobbi's Genii Session article in the September 2005 issue, he made mention that if he has enough solicitations, he will elaborate on his interpretation of the commonly quoted Robert-Houdin quote of magicians are actors playing the part of magicians. He says, "I'll tell you in advanc...

Re: BoM: Absolute Magic by Darren Brown

I did not get that he was contradictory. I got that magic tricks are (in and of themselves) inherently empty and meaningless, and the artist that is a magician creates quite literally the magic experience to be had; which I got is a rather separate thing from the magic trick itself. In fact, you cou...
