Re: Riffle Shuffle Work Using The Triumph Shuffle

Is there any chance that Bishop is just like a really good troll? I don't care how big his ego is; NO ONE can think that video he made is actually deceptive..not even the creator. Plus his whole argument about Triumph being the name of the shuffle and not the trick, when anyone who made it past 2nd ...

Re: Criss is back at it ...

Perhaps...but we put up with all kinds of nonsense from magicians that we like. And when someone we don't like has a bad show we make sure to gloat about it. It does seem he is having a rough time and the show may be bad but odds are that after this whole thing is over he will still be working and n...

Re: Criss is back at it ...

In the grand scheme of things and how many people actually use the internet 600,000 isn't that much though. But seriously..two posts in a row commenting on the language he uses?? I could see if he was shouting out racist comments or something but he pretty much used a fairly lightweight term. Grante...

Thanks! Some of those mint errors seem like they would be well-suited for a magic effect.

Miscut Penny

Hey all. So I found this weird looking penny that seems to have run into a problem while being manufactured. Anybody know anything about coins like this? Seems like if nothing else you can appear to pull the penny part off the copper. http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x200/twofoot36/Image2.jpg http...

Re: Criss is back at it ...

I don't think the people who would understand the references would really be watching much magic though. I have thought about doing a meme-themed story deck. Instead of Sam the Bellhop how about Boxxy Teh Camwhore?

Re: Eric DeCamps - PURE MAGIC 2009 Edition

Great site! I definitely reccommend everyone check out the video section. Eric is the rare breed of close-up magician that always makes you want to stop what you are doing and watch when he performs. Even things he is just working on always look so smooth and flawless. I look forward to hopefully se...

David Alexander,

I believe you are missing the point here. You can't just go researching things and then form rational opinions based on established facts and history. That is NOT how the internet works.

Re: Anyone else get this email? Whiz Flix want me to give them free DVDs...

I don't really think magic DVD rentals would be all that great though. I'm sure there are a few who would enjoy it but I think one of the perks of being able to rent DVDs would be getting them cheaper in order to copy them and have your own, illegal, copy. The problem with that is that it actually c...

Re: New Movie About Magicians in the Works: The Most Powerful Magician on Earth

Sounds like they are going to portray magicians in a ridiculous way again. At least it's a comedy but it would be nice to see a movie that doesn't make us look..well the way they usually do

Re: Penn and ... Twitter?

Re: Triumph

FWIW what makes culling and stacking difficult is doing it while making it look like you are doing nothing. Since you clearly fail at that goal in the video I fail to see what the whole point of it is. Not only did the actual shuffle work take forever but the strip outs looked godawful. At first I t...
