Re: Anyone going to Atlantic City soon?

Hey Carl--
I will check at the next home game for the San Jose SHARKS Hockey team.

I would think that they may carry the "Shark on a Stick"!!

I'll let you know.

card inside sealed new deck

I am trying to locate an effect where the signed card is revealed inside a brand new, sealed deck of cards.

I recall reading something on this years ago--can't find it now! Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Re: What do spectators think?

Alain--I found your post to be very interesting and thought provoking! I have a similar performing experience, most of my "shows" are for folks I know. I feel that most average spectators will be too polite to offer real constructive criticism. They probaly don't want to be unappreciative ...

Re: Ring and rope routines

Glen,
Quite a few folks have spoke highly of Dan Fleshman's "Sonata for Ring & String". I haven't located it yet for myself.
If you don't mind video, Eric De Camps has one of the best routines on his A-1 "Stars of Magic" Video. Hope this helps!!

Re: The close-up trick I hate most:

Regarding Ring on Rope--Eric De Camps ring on rope routine is very magical and for the most part stays away from the "puzzle" moves. IMHO

I was informed today that Mike Bornstein has sold his business. He wouldn't identify the new owner who will be making announcements in January. :(

Re: LePaul & Steranko Books

Thank you Mark & Jon for your insights. It's always informative to see what others have gotten from a book; which effects have stood the test of time, etc. What better way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon, with a newly discovered magic treasure! :D :D Gene Bisson

Re: December Genii is in the mail! Look out for Aaron Fisher.

The December Genii has just arrived in sunny San Jose, CA. The article on Aaron Fisher looks great. I have been attempting "Ambitious Graduate" which appears a lot easier than Kenner's S.W.E. Shift--Good luck.
