Almost. A top palm would leave the card reversed in the pack and require tension as the pack was dropped. This move works with gravity...Originally posted by Alpen:
one handed top palm, then dump the palmed card under the spread?
No palm. Outer right corner (or left in my case) clipped between the roots of the second and third fingers...Originally posted by Alpen:
Oh, OK, into Lateral Palm, right?
True... it can be unreliable, but like many moves in magic it's a knacky thing that takes time. I would say that after playing with it now for about ten years, I can hit it probably 95% of the time.Originally posted by Bill Duncan:
Would that I could. I've never been able to hit the air pressure turnover 100% of the time...
My self esteem doesn't need that kind of build up. It's not why I do magic. :)Originally posted by Dean Atkinson:
... I will defend it by saying that alot of people are interested in what it takes to fool their magic friends if only for their own self esteem and progression within the art.
Nah, it seems that many "magicians effects" just don't play well to layman. Some do, mind you, but I'm not going to give up on an effect (or disdain it in any way)just because it won't fool my fellow magi.If you can fool, or impress or even entertain another conjuror with your stuff then you can probably floor anyone and that's what it's all about...
I'm curious now.It may not be important to you to fool other magic friends once in a while and to discuss these ideas on the forum
I wonder just how important this really is to those who work primarily for layman?...but it is to the other contributers to the thread.
If you happen to live near an energetic magical population center, you have the best chance of becoming acquainted with this particular delight. Seeking the appreciation of ones peers is common to most creative or artistic endeavors and magicians are no different. Their appreciation obviously takes the form of being fooled (and entertained). Its a form of objective recognition of your merit as an artist and a craftsman (as distinct from an "entertainer" which you can get from any lay audience). In a field like magic, with no formal means of recognition or qualification, this is often the only such recognition available. Other than that, its a hoot (better than drugs).Originally posted by wert:
I never knew I was supposed to attach any particular importance to "fooling Magicians". ;)

". . .that abject?" just how "abject" do you mean?Originally posted by wert:
Is the need for recognition really that abject for some? . . .[/QB]
