Re: Rare Karl Fulves Book, Jack Miller Holdout, Slydini books , west Coast Quarterly magand Many other New Books & Effe

Just ignore me, I could have sworn I deleted that earlier comment. Anyways, never said it was against the rules. But it penalizes the seller and discourages others buyers when someone publicly criticizes price. These are collectibles and it's just basic supply/demand. That's why a poster can sell fo...

Re: One Silent Witness for sale...

Is there a set amount of these that will be made before it is discontinued? Or are you producing sets periodically

Beautiful effect.

Re: set the bar too high

I agree with you. Also, a few other magicians told me I was crazy for doing a random selection. I'll just pick the volunteer myself I love that bill switch. I have another routine that it will actually work very cleanly with I should have been more specific though. In seabrooke's routine, he loads t...

Re: set the bar too high

Nevermind, I missed the part where Seabrooke says I should just flat out ask if anyone would like to volunteer a bill. We'll see how that goes... I must say though, I'm not keen on his fake loading of the bill into the envelope. It also prevents one of the envelopes from being examined. If anyone ha...

Re: set the bar too high

Bless you all for the advice; I would have been on a completely different tangent. I finally received Seabrooke's book and love it! It looks like it is going to be a lot of fun to perform. I'm still waiting for bedwell's book to arrive A question came up reading this. What is the classiest way to en...

Re: set the bar too high

Well, Latimer did win the the FISM 2003 Grand Prix, so I think that's why they used that language. But I understand your aversion to the title.

And I echo your thoughts on the L&L studios. A clunky magician surrounded by 20 giggling supermodels....LOL

Re: set the bar too high

Mark could you give an example of your favorite lengthy performances? Penn, Teller, and Latimer have all performed a cups/balls routine for over 3 minutes on TV to thunderous applause: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJN1iMOfgAc

Re: set the bar too high

Well Copperfield has used a LOT of stooges, but I was guessing this was an authentic volunteer. I agree it was creepy, especially when compared with Pop's classy persona. I was just trying to find a example of a rope routine that was not simply "phase after phase after phase." Sorry for of...

Re: set the bar too high

Hahahaha, Bill that is supremely clever! I would have never thought of applying paper-balls-over-head to rope magic. Thank you for sharing that gem

I'm having difficultly locating Bedwell's booklet; but I'm sure I will be well rewarded once my search is over

Re: set the bar too high

Mark: Thank you for your thoughts and suggestion. I appreciate your skepticism because, like you, I have seen some absolutely cringe-worthy rope acts (e.g. Derek Hughes final AGT performance). I often joke that had I grown up in France around the likes of Merlin, I would have gone to magic school in...

set the bar too high

Performed a five minute rope routine at a charity last year. It was a mix of Tabary and Merlin. I don't mean to stroke my ego, but it absolutely demolished the audience. I had to stop several times just to let the applause die down, and it really made me regret only practicing rope magic for the las...

Very inspired by Tabary's style of routine when I first saw it 5 years ago. However having already incorporated those moves, I am desperately looking for new thinkers.
