Mr Clean Magic sponge

Months ago a coin trick using a Mr Clean Magic sponge was published in Genii. I think??? I save my issues of Genii, but now can't find the trick and Richard does not remember the trick. Maybe it was in a different magazine. Help! Does anyone know where this effect appeared?

Re: False Counts

Old "sticky" cards will exacerbate the problem of the second card going along with the first. Practice with a new deck. New cards and following Richard's instructions will solve your problem.

Good luck.

Fascinating summary,Dustin, that made me wish I hadn't wasted so much time reading this thread. But seriously, man, you need to get a life.

Sterling Dietz.Last Saturday the wife and I saw one his stage shows on a 5 city tour of Western Washington. Sterling is only 17 and has been doing magic for only 4 years.

Re: Criss Angel Believe Buzz

I just want to tell Mr Alexander that Mark Paulson's name is really Mark Paulson and that he does know the definition anthropomorhize. He's a nice guy and, like me, totally unaware it is a bad thing to like M&M World.

Keep it magical.

As a dues paying, card carrying member of SAM I am concerned that SAMtalking was summarily closed and even more concerned that there has been no clarifying communication from any of the current officers.To broaden this thread a bit, this high handed action by the "executive committee" make...

Re: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

All the reviews I have read have been positive, but thanks for the confirmation this is a great movie,Richard. I'm a big fan of Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones,but I can't hold a candle to Michael Ryan of Kirkland, Washington. Look here <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://seattlepi.nwsource.co...

Re: Public Library as a Resource

A couple of years ago I was frustrated by magic books I owned that referred to but did not describe sleights in other books that were out of print. Then the bright idea hit me that I could probably find some of these books at my local library. Wrong! I went to the main King County Public Libary in d...

Re: Angel on Oprah

Yeah, I thought it was a cool idea, too. I tried it out on myself using my home phone number. Watched the video of Criss revealing my name, etc. So, then I did it with my wife's name and her cell phone number. After she watched the video, she started getting calls on her cell phone. No one there whe...
