Re: Real Secrets Weber Bonus and Email

Sometimes business fail or websites just simply stop working. I recently bought pictures from Sears Portrait Studios. I haven't gotten them, because the company (which apparently has nothing to do with Sears) simply shut down. Employees found out when they went to work, the doors were locked. Now, I...

Re: ERDNASE

It would seem to me that a man named E.S. Andrews, a supposed con-man, would be a very obvious answer to the S.W. Erdnase question.

Since there is no solid "proof" and a great deal of suspects, I think we allow our desire to have one last "secret" to outweigh our common sense.

I really liked the routine, it seemed very fresh for a cups and balls routine. Have you read the Loomis Cups and Balls routine? Your handling, not using the false transfers etc is along the same thinking. At least from the spectator's viewpoint (me), there wasn't any funny moves it was nice. Good Job.

Re: Question: Larry Jennings - Thoughts on Cards (Special Edition)

If the card comes our face toward the audience, this last part is slightly off. "After youve removed the card from the pocket, pause for a few moments to allow suspense to build. Ask the spectator to announce the card he has been thinking of, then slowly turn around your card to reveal it."
