A quiet discussion via PM back when that video was posted brought out the names of that guy and two buddies working on the trick and kudos to all for their good ideas.Originally posted by false_shuffle:
Johnathan, are you sure? And can you tell me how, in particular, you know that it's real and not published? Thanks man.
Can you clarify what you meant? Does Steve's book contain the secret to that youtube link I posted?Originally posted by Jonathan Townsend:
It gets worse (or better depending) if you look in Steve Dusheck's book on card magic.Originally posted by false_shuffle:
Here's another one I found.....*puzzled*
Amazing world isn't it? :D [/b]
Randy...I hope you are not referring to the YouTube video. Mine was on the MagicVideoDepot.com...I should also mention that that video is really old and not even close to what I am doing now with this effect. They can take the card right out of your hand once the last piece is on there. Also I should note that my effect can be done with a folded card or a pristine flat card. It just depends on the aesthetic you are going for.Originally posted by Randy DiMarco:
Gared - You use this in your "real world" work? What real world is that? I can't think of any situation where you could do that trick and then stick the card in your pocket or otherwise put the card away without "real people" wanting to touch the card.
The video looks fine. It's the moment after the last piece has been restored and the card is twirled at your fingertips that has some of us wondering just how well things go when eager hands reach out and if you can let them take the card right then to look at and keep and later show their friends (and grandchildren) when they tell the story ...Originally posted by false_shuffle:
...The card is examinable at the end of the trick for those of you that feel this is the most important detail in magic. hehehe.
