    Kickstart the Elements Deck

    You like playing cards. I like playing cards. So I sat down and finally decided to try my hand at designing my own deck. Apparently sometime in September I confused my engineering degrees with graphic design. Oops. Anyway, the cards have a classical element theme (water, earth, fire...

    There are also a handful of tricks involving matchboxes. The first one that comes to mind is a penetration trick where a needle or coin clearly goes completely through a matchbox. The matchbox is then opened to show that it's filled with a wooden block. I forgot the precise name of the...

    Reputable And Trustworthy Magic Dealers

    Well, Hank Lee himself just got thrown in jail for a couple years for $500k worth of credit card fraud. The store is still going, but I can't make any claims about its current status. I've never had problems with T11, Ellusionist, or Dan and Dave, but I'll admit to getting most of my books off...

    Saturday Night Contest - Capture the Cards

    Been some time since I did one of these. I've just recently been getting back to magic - I'm starting slow, rereading Mastering the Art of Magic by Eugene Burger, as well as spending time reflecting on how I can grow my magic from what it used to be to something more substantial. Something a...

    Amazing find at Goodwill

    I managed to find a copy of Expert Card Technique, 3rd Ed, in decent condition for 10 bucks. It was a good day.

    Brainstorming about a performance

    I love Everywhere and Nowhere, but I find Michael Vincent's take on it pretty boring. Tommy Wonder's however, is excellent. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvFJZqMUoQY

    Discreetly pulling from the bottom of the deck

    Not sure about Expert at the Card Table. It is definitely in Hugard and Braue's Card Manipulations compilation, and in the 3rd edition of Expert Card Technique (if not the 2nd)

    Saturday Night - Roundtable with Michael Herp

    This is something I've always wanted to ask. What makes you want to flourish? I guess more specifically - Do you get to perform your flourishes, even semi-regularly, for people other than magicians/card flourishers? Or is it just a fun activity to do in your spare time?

    Strangest/coolest experience while performing

    2 things: I did a trick where the back of the card changes from blue to red, and while my friend (a normally very logical person) didn't buy the card changing color 'by magic,' he thought I spraypainted it or used a marker to color it in. I also pulled the hail mary of all 'think of a card'...

    I can't take the heat... or the cold

    Baby powder works wonders in the summer for sweaty hands.
