    This guy actually bent my coin how?

    It's honestly not that impressive on how. It's much more impressive that you didn't see how he did it. Think of how you would bend a coin. Pliers? Imagine if that was the answer. He bent it using pliers. Isn't it more impressive that you didn't see him bend the coin with pliers, than the fact...

    Advice for performance anxiety

    Build confidence. Practice performing using a trick that is automatic or semi automatic. A trick that utilizes a key card would be a good place to start. After X amount of time (I believe 5 minutes) you can no longer edit a post.

    Easy magic

    If you are asking if there is a resource that could teach you all of the contents of a magic book through video, then no. Maybe some of the book. You'd have to describe the effect in the book to google and see if any free tutorial comes up; that would be dumb, since you would need to read the...

    YOU DON'T GET TO KNOW HOW IT WORKS!

    Is that really true? The "magical experience" is over once they start asking for the method; at which point, the experience isn't better or worse if they know the secret or not. They've already "experienced" it. Knowing the secret won't change the experience they had. You could try to argue that...

    What deck do you primarily use?

    I use the Costco bikes for practice, but I noticed that they're somewhat choppy on the edges and a little thicker than if you buy a single pack from Target. Not sure why. When I'm out I'll use Nocs. They're plain enough to not be suspicious, and the marking system is useful for some impromptu...

    I was featured on EWN (Etika World Network)!

    I don't think the final phase was done poorly necessarily. You just completed the second reveal. You already punched him and got a reaction, and then you immediately uppercutted him with the final phase. I think that worked out fine, tbh. If you think you can perform it better now, then...

    Theory11 Awesomeness!

    Yeah I saw this also at the San Mateo Target in California. It's funny, I normally don't check the playing cards section because I know they're only going to have the red/blue single pack bikes, the red/blue double pack bikes, the red/black 4-pack bikes, and the Bicycle Prestige plastic garbage...

    You have to train your creativity. Here are some ways to do this. Brainstorming: Throw out all kinds of ideas and concepts on a piece of paper. There are no rules to this. Anything goes. Just throw out anything you know and can think of on a piece of paper. Then comment on it, write notes...

    Ambitious Card Routines

    The sleights you use in an ACR I guess can make it unique, but really it's just more of "and now its on top". In a spectators eyes, no matter how you did it, it looks the same. So the real uniqueness, in my opinion, comes down to how you close it. There are so many options out there. Like...
