    From Card Sharp to Magician?

    Back in 2003 I read the book Bringing Down the House, and I was fascinated by the story. Basically, it was the story that inspired the movie 21. Anyways, this was the beginning of high school for me and after that I learned card counting, false shuffles, second deals, the pass, and three card...

    Charity: Water project

    Hey William, Raising funds for a charitable cause is never a bad thing in a perfect world. However, there are individuals and corporations that take advantage of the kind gestures of others. People are now cautious about donating their hard earned money because of this fact. The best thing that...

    Well I can speak on the emotional aspect. If you are a good enough entertainer, you will derive some type of emotion from an audience.

    Staple gun roulette ideas

    Hey ribby! I have a question with this effect as I do not own it. You said in the descriptions it is the third staple gun with the loaded staples as the climax. Was this a typo? Wouldn't it make more sense that the last (the fourth) staple gun have the "ammunition". With roulette effects the...

    ZaidA, No one here will be able give you a straight forward answer such as "2 hours a night". It depends on your individual goals in regards on what you want to do as well as the time you have available outside your responsibilities. For me personally, I will practice an effect until the...

    This seems like an interesting conversion that I can throw my 2 cents into. Can I first ask what marketing book you are reading? A return on investment can easily be measured financially and physically because they are quantitative. Lets say you get hired to work an event. The client invest...

    NON-TOXIC With non British Phone Numbers

    I have not purchased Non-Toxic yet, but I was wondering if this method is different from the one Rich Ferguson uses in his "This is Mentalsim" dvd?

    Old Magicians vs Young Magicians

    Im not saying you would have to avoid the forums completely. Sometimes they could be educational and useful when asking questions or looking for the next product to buy. What I am saying is the forum, isnt a place where you should focus all you attention on. There as some members on other sites...
