    Where do you get these cups?

    Perhaps... but I saw Penn and Teller do a great cups and balls routine with plastic dixie cups. And I have seen horrible routines by no namers that use some ridiculously expensive brass cup set. I would lean more on the side of the talent than the complexity of a cup.

    Coin (Not Money) Magic

    I'll second that... especially the Ammar stuff. Also, David Roths "Expert Coin Magic"

    Looking for half a Kennedy Half Dollar?

    That is TOP NOTCH advice! I always advocate people creating their own gimmicks... its how you learn. And possible find something your good at and love.

    Ready to vanish a coin for REAL?

    I'm pretty sure this is Fickle Nickel... good vanish for cameras, not so much for live performance. I believe I saw Siegfried or Roy do this on a special about 10 years ago. Gets a great reaction on TV.

    Where do you get these cups?

    They really are just 3 stackable cups... so any cups will do. Adams sells them for about 3-7 bucks depending on where you get them. If you want nice copper cups, try Morrisey... or you can shoot for the moon later for some from rings n' things 2 (that could set you back over $150 tho...

    Silver Morgan Dollar Shells

    Once again, writing without really reading. I said JB has a great morgan shell for $95 which is a little bit cheaper than Schoolcraft with a faster turn around. I'm not dogging schoolcraft at all, I said that it was my personal opinion... no need to get defensive. I'm sorry that you haven't...

    Silver Morgan Dollar Shells

    Read what I wrote, 1964 Kennedy's won't be found in a bank... but that doesn't mean they are rare. Any local coin shop will have stacks of them for about 5 bucks each. However, most banks do in fact carry Kennedy half dollars... the kennedy half dollar is still being produced (yes even in 2009)...

    Silver Morgan Dollar Shells

    But he's talking about his first shell... I mean, yea the buick and a mustang is a fine comparison... but the buick will still get you there. If your just practicing and starting... get the cheaper one, you might find that coin magic isn't your thing and you like cards, or whatever. Then you...

    Silver Morgan Dollar Shells

    Not to offend, but I can not disagree more. If you have never gone into coin magic and want to start out and "test the waters" so to speak, by all means start with Johnson or even Sasco. Yes Schoolcraft makes some amazing coins and they are perfect and wonderful... they are also really expensive...

    "Be one of the few to own them"

    White cents - not to piss in anyones fruit loops... but am I the only one who sees this as ridiculously gimmicky crap that seems directly ripped from the E marketing handbook? The same handbook that many T11 fan boys seems to despise soooooo much? Its fine marketing, I love business and its...

    All that was old is new again...

    I got it from my local magic shop right before it went out of business. However, a quick google search and/or amazon glance, should put you in the right direction :) I'll get a review once I complete the book... but theres a reason they are still making copies of a book from 1897. There's some...

    All that was old is new again...

    In 1897 a magician and author named Roterberg published a classic book on card magic called "New Era Card Tricks". Originally this book sold for a smashing 2 dollars! Now, the reprint of this classic in card conjuring sells for 45 dollars in hardback form. So why am I writing about this here at...

    Forum Error on Mac's?

    Not always, that actually just might be the problem. When you have 2 different OS's with different coding and then try to use the exact same software... there might be some bugs. I'm wondering if there is anyone who is able to use the forums with OS X Leopard? My mac with tiger works fine, but...

    Forum Error on Mac's?

    Good eye :) as you can see I can type now ;-) this is for my computer at work. The only thing I can think is that, maybe it has something to do with leopard? Who knows.
