Re: crystal method card

Crystal + pips would be great for David Regal's "The Half Deal" which is in "Close-Up & Personal" on page 97.

Re: John Guastaferro’s “Brainstorm” DVD’s Awesome!!!

Well, I'm glad I bought these two DVDs prior to reading the review of them in the latest Genii. I enjoyed the DVDs very much and find at least three effects that I'll be doing.

If I had read the review, I probably would not have purchased them!

Re: Las Vegas

Thanks for all the Vegas info. We'll be out there the first week of November. Already have tickets for S&R (my wife wouldn't go to Vegas without seeing them) and for "O". Plan to see Mac King, Rick Thomas, Michael Close and who know what else. Anyone familiar with the Wednesday night g...

Re: One Non-Card Trick

I might do "All Screwed Up" (AKA Nuts & Bolts Opener) that I learned from Doc Eason in a lecture 10+ years ago. Simple 2 in hand, 1 in pocket type effect with unusual props. Do it all the time - nearly always for laymen.

enjoy...mike

Re: UNUSUAL OUT OF THIS WORLD

I wanted to mention another OOTW plot called "Prediction Out of this World," You'll find it in the book "The Commercial Magic of J.C. Wagner" by Mike Maxwell. There are a couple of things I like about this routine. (1) it uses a deck shuffled by the spectator (2) it uses only abo...
