Re: Shin Lim cancels in Vegas

Shin is a great guy and a good friend. This is all news to me and, as noted earlier, I've seen nothing about this in the Twitterverse. Nevertheless, I wish him the very best. He's super creative and a natural with difficult card sleights. Things that would take me months to get right, he seems able ...

This is the original Black Box by Eric Samuels. It is like new, never used. I bought it and then traveled overseas for an extended period. Upon returning, I purchased Eric’s BOX-X, which is now my go-to Q&A show prop. As a result, I never ended up using the original Black Box. It has remained in...

Re: Magician Empties and Refills a Full Lake Live at Cyberspeed

As noted by Richard, similar methods have been used by Franz Harary, Lance, and others. And even earlier by filmmakers like Chaplin, Keaton, and Lloyd, if we want to really draw comparisons. I think this particular arrangement most resembles Lance’s vanish of elephants in the Nevada desert on one of...

I absolutely loved 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'. Loved the slow burn. Loved the climax. ANd, yes, Brad Pitt is a goddamned movie star.

As for Pieces of Strange, I've been on the fence (if there are any left now). I picked up a couple of the other small releases (fun stuff).

Re: New Magic Shop / Chinese Theme Park

It's so odd to me that they'd open a theme park in Zhuhai featuring a Macau market, as Macau is right next to Zhuhai. They border each other. This all looks cool, but the idea of Lionsgate Theme Park sounds as silly to me as an Orion Pictures them park. :))

Hi Brad. Of course, they don't know.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with impression devices. I love the cleverness of many of them, but often find myself inclined to think that they leave the spectator with a possible answer. In the case of an impression device (pad, clipboard, etc.), something is taken back by the performer....

For something very cool with a borrowed iPhone, check out Michael Murray's 'Cal-Ender' or Gregory Wilson's 'Code Breaker' (independently created by Gregory, and the same effect/method as Cal-Ender).

Also, I'm a big fan of 'Earworm', 'Magic SMS' by Angelo Carbone, and Myke Phillips 'iUnlockYourMind'.
