Three Belgian Style

I certainly have enjoyed Three Belgian Style , an offering by Duc Nhien that appears in the June '03 "Magicana" section. It features one of my favorite sleights - many thanks for including Mike Gallo's insights to its origins. This routine is beautiful; the more I play with it, the more op...

Re: Let me Egg you on!

After experimenting, I found the skin's ability to inflate depends on its moistness. (Results vary greatly.) I've also found that the speed of inflation is affected by the manner in which the egg is folded. Cutting flaps in the ends of the egg was a great tip ... in fact, I think I'm going to cut fl...

Re: Let me Egg you on!

Many thanks, for your comments Asrah ... I'll check out Ganson. I tried out my first egg skin today (5 more pending in a day or so). I have applied glycerine per Colucci's instructions. The skin does not seen to want to inflate very easily ... perhaps I need to enlarge the hole, as I used a piece of...

I've written video and film scripts for over thirty years. Normally, I opt for the "Hollywood" style script format ... In that format, stage directions are written flush left, names are centered, and dialogue is indented left & right. "Personal directions" are placed between ...

Re: mental card tricks

1) Christian Englblom taught a nifty mind-reading & card selection effect called "Top of the Peak" in his 2001 lecture. (He also broke hearts and inspired many as he demonstrated and revealed his anti-faro.) 2) Jerry Andrus' "A Word in Mind" is an excellent card/mentalism mys...
