Re: Not really magic..Quick change from Mr. Brown's site

Max....I'm thinking of using the robotic clothing principle for perhaps a robotic open/close topit in the lining of your jacket/coat or having your sleeves rolled up magically(robotic) without using your hands prior to a sleight of hand routine.....just a brainstorm.....

Re: Big flub during a Broadcast Talent show on AOL today. (Sun)

If memory serves me correctly, it reminds me of a major flub of the illusion, Metamorphosis, on the Tom Synder TV Show several years ago. The transposition took several minutes instead of seconds and I believe they even broke for a commercial break and finished it afterwards...Alex
