    I'll be the one to ask this year...is the holiday wheel happening?

    Meeting Ira Glass

    I haven't posted on these forums in a long time, but I have a story I think some of you might appreciate. This past weekend, Ira Glass of This American Life came to do a show in my city. I'm a writer, and through some work connections, I was able to meet him at a VIP event before the show...

    Brainstorming for Instagram video (need a one-handed card vanish)

    I ocassionally like to post brief card moves or tricks on my Instagram account, but what I can do is limited by the fact that I have to hold my phone to film. I had an idea for a quick, fun video to post, but I need a way to make a card vanish with one hand (with or without the rest of the...

    I need to finally learn to false deal. What is the best resource?

    I've been off and on trying to learn how to false deal for years. Mainly bottom and seconds. I've gone for long periods of time of consistent practice but have never managed to make even the slightest progress for some reason. I have a few of Jason England's downloads, and all the classic books...

    Mystery of the old deck: a bizarre question

    Oh yeah, it IS an Ohio deck. I know that for sure. I just didn't know if it would make that drastic of a difference.

    Mystery of the old deck: a bizarre question

    I need to get to the bottom of something that's been bothering me for a long time. I seriously got into learning magic with cards back around 2005. Since about that time, there has been a deck of blue, Rider Back playing cards in one of the drawers in the kitchen of my mom's house. I've...

    Card Clips

    The card clips definitely increase the longevity of a deck of cards, but like it's been mentioned, be sure to go with a Porper clip. I got a nice one by Dan and Dave as a gift, but even the simple ones will do the job. The best difference they make is in humidity. With the constant pressure...

    Perfect Faro Shuffle Questions
