Headline Prediction . . .

Instead of mentally projecting your mentalism thoughts, type them here.

Postby Ray Eden » 11/04/02 08:36 AM

I am planning to do a HEADLINE PREDICTION in cooperation with one of Finland's largest newspapers. I will readily admit that my knowledge of mentalism is not very vast as I primarily focus on sleight of hand and stand up. So, my question is this . . . in your opinion, what is the best HEADLINE PREDICTION on the market? or in print?

Thanks,

Ray Eden

Obviously this depends on what exactly you wish to produce, but I would highly recommend the Ted Lesley methodology as found in his book Paramiracles.

Best,

Basically, I'm what I'm looking to do is to have a sealed envelop which is held by a third party to be opened the day of the headline. I'm looking for as "clean" a method as possible.

Could you give a brief overview of the effect that you mentioned?

Like Michael said, the Lesley method might well prove your best and simplest (least expensive) method over all. You literally do mail the prediction about a week ahead of time to the attention of the Editor/Publisher or whomever IN CARE OF the facility you are doing the performance in... that is what the public finds... the rouse is beautiful, I've used it several times and it has never failed to make jaws drop.

I'll try to find it. I did a quick search, and its not available here in Finland. Any recommendation of where I could find it (Paramiracles) this side of the pond?

Wow! You're fast... (I was just signing off when I saw your post pop up...)

I got my copy through Joe Stevens Magic Emporium here in the States... I'm uncertain who would carry it over that way but you could go to Ted's website ( The Wonder Workshop )
