I'll take you up on that. Are you coming out for the History Conference? One thing, however, my purpose for wanting to do this move is to control four cards in separate parts of the deck. Of course a block might be an expedient way of learning the move first, then graduating to separated cards. Of course, I have enough trouble with one! (I'm convinced I just have a brain-vapor-lock on this one--I should be able to do it, dammit!)
Thanks very much! I searched the Magic Caf and found this thread: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/view ... 28&forum=2
It's fascinating reading and I have a couple of observations/comments:
The DPS/EBP combination is a fabulous idea (since the problems I encounter are those you described) so I will begin working on that! I suppose being able to do the EBP will also instill in me some much-needed confidence that I will
be able to do the DPS one day!
The dribble feint is a terrific idea! MANY applications, as I see it, especially for those of us who still occasionally dribble. (Remember when everybody
was dribbling the deck every few seconds? Yikes!)
I was particularly pleased with your application of acting technique to sleight of hand. That is something that is woefully lacking in the literature of magic. Perhaps you have more thoughts in this direction (and with moves/technique other than the DPS) that you would consider sharing with the forum? Actually, that would make a fine subject for a Genii/Magicana
feature, wouldnt it Richard?
The Magic Caf thread seemed to die off after young Euan's second clip (which was much better than his first, if I may be so bold). If there is anything else you would care to share here (for example, please expand on the technique and the cover you use for using the DPS as a top palm), I would certainly enjoy reading it!
