Re: Torn ā€˜nā€™ Restored Cigarette Paper

In his show at the Castle, Skinner used to tear and restore a drinking straw wrapper. He then used the straw as a wand for his impromptu cups and balls.

I'm home now and it wasn't the ad that said the book would be numbered, it's in the article about HL in the November Genii.

Re: Harry Lorayne's Personal Collection has Arrived

I just received my copy of Personal Collection and have a question. I think the adds said that it would be signed and numbered. Does numbered mean something like "number 87 of 750"? Mine is just signed, nothing else.

Re: David Copperfield's Hand Twisting Illusion

That's the way it's supposed to be done - with some subtle misdirection. But why use subtlety when you can make everyone look away for as long as it takes.

Can you guess that I'm not a big DC fan?

Speaking of reprints, do you have the rights to the Vernon columns? They would make great reading.

Re: Favorite Lectures You Have Attended

Richard, When and where did you see Jean Merlin's rope lecture? I saw it over twenty years ago at the Castle (actually the Masquers Club) and will never forget it. I still have the lecture notes showing his eyes boring in on his right hand while his left hand does the dirty business. I learned more ...
