    Palming from the middle of the deck

    The only source I used for the Side Steal was Expert Card Technique, and I feel it does a great job. Definitely takes good, honest practice to have it slide out without the slightest notion that something is up; but the handling within enabled me to do it well enough off the bat. Wait until you...

    Kelly psych control - Daniel Madison

    Not bad, but it could be done a bit more smoothly. I've never performed this but have always been interested by it, and I like the way it comes off from the spectator's point of view.

    Why are magicians reluctant to use two decks?

    I think magicians are generally reluctant to blatantly use a different deck than they already used in front of a spectator since it seems to arouse suspicsion, but I don't know what's wrong with using two decks for an effect. One of my favorite plots is 'Do As I Do', and I carry two decks...

    Kick effect - amazing cardtrick

    Well there's the issue of whether or not he discovered it. Hell, I've created some cardistry moves before I had any idea what cardistry/XCM/flourishing was without having seen it done before; and I've certainly thought of some cool magic stuff that I've noticed later were published or probably...

    Card Culling

    I always find myself wishing I could string together effects that require some sort of stack preparation, and I've yet to learn and practice the cull. I'd like to ask what you think the best source of information is. I've, of course, read about it in some books; but I seem to be missing a piece...

    The world's hardest and longest card cut

    Many people have done much more difficult things for a much longer period of time and are still very inadequate at it. I wouldn't say 'experience' that is measured in time gives you any real grounds, and it usually just breeds arrogance. Additionally, I don't see how formula is disrespecting...

    Creating flourishes

    I created my first flourish somewhere in 2005-2006 (I think) when I had no idea what flourishing/XCM/cardistry was and was just a kid who enjoyed magic. For me it's just been something that happens, but I've never made the effort to stare at a deck of cards and figure out how to do something new...
