    Ionesco inspired absurdist show

    Hello all, I've taken a little hiatus from magic but, after reading La Cantatrice Chauve by Ionesco, I have been re-inspired and have an idea for a one man show that I'm really excited about. For those of you who don't know the play, it is an absurdist comic tragedy that attempts to strip away...

    Beautiful Magic

    With the evolving image of the magic industry, it is easy to lose sight of some of the true classics of magic. While few classics actually fool modern day magicians, nothing inspires me more. I thought it would be fun if we shared links to some of our favorite classics in order to shine some...

    Completely bare and uncut

    I have enjoyed practicing flourishing over past few years yet I have never submitted my work to the community. This is mostly because I have nothing but a crappy camera, an old version of windows movie maker, and absolutely no literacy when it comes to computers. With all the flashy editing and...

    Magic "Final Exam"

    I'd like to share a quick story that I hope the community enjoys. I was recently on vacation taking a walk by an old one room school house that has since been converted into a day camp for children. As I passed the kids who were standing outside, I heard one of them yell that he had found an...

    Spectators with mixed feelings?

    I had an interesting thing happen to me when performing at a local restaurant recently. I approached a table with an elderly couple who was watching me from a few tables down perform for a small family. I introduced myself, they seemed very friendly, but when asked if they'd like to see some...

    Lift Off and Twistration

    I was thinking about getting this but to me it looks exactly like Uncanny Penetration in Apocalypse. I'm not looking for anyone to reveal it but is it possible for someone to tell me if the method is that much different from UP that it would be practical to buy. Thanks!

    DVDs and Books

    This has been on my mind for a little while and I just wanted to hear other people's opinions. I know a lot of the time if someone asks a question about the new latest and greates DVD someone always says to buy a book instead. Now, don't get me wrong, I love books. I've found most of my...

    Erdnase Second Deal

    This may seem like a stupid question but I've been learning the second deal as described in EATCT and was thinking about getting one of Jason England's downloads. But neither of his methods seem to be that of what was described in Erdnase. So my question is what method most closely corresponds...

    Symphony by Daniel Garcia

    This is my first review so comments on how I did would be appreciated. Thanks! I know it's been a while since the release of Symphony but I really wanted try and test these tricks to the best of my abilities before writing a review. So if anyone hasn't bought it yet hopefully this might help...

    Where to start?

    Recently I've become interested in gambling techniques and demonstrations and was looking at some of Jason England's downloads. So my question is where to start? Should I start with false shuffles before I go into false deals? Or should I start with palming? Just some questions I've had and...

    Defining Style

    I haven't been into cardistry for long but this is a question I've been meaning to ask. What defines style and how do you develop it? Is it the types of moves you do, the way you do them, the speed at which you do them, etc. I would like to hear other's thoughts. Thanks!

    First Video

    It's pouring rain outside so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make my first (very short)cardistry video. I've been practicing for about 5 months now so please bear with me. Comments and Critique would be appreciated. Thanks. Credits: Dan...

    Genesis v2:Winged Delta?

    I noticed in the trailer that one of the moves listed was winged delta, yet it's not on the dvd. I thought that maybe it was an easter egg but I can't seem to find it. Did anyone else notice this?

    Four digit force.

    Does anyone know of a good way to force a four digit number or any resources? I've scoured through all of the apocalypse volumes and can't seem to find anything that suits my needs. Thanks in advance.

    When you are practicing flourishes...

    ...Do you practice one move over and over until you perfect it? Or do you choose a couple and practice those over a longer period of time?

    The "How did you do that?" line.

    How do you respond if someone says "How do you do that?". Sometime I say it was magic, and other times I just ignore them. Is this the correct way to approach it? I just wanted to hear other people's thoughts.

    Best Named Flourish

    I started this thread to see what you guys think, so what do you think is the best named flourish? It's not what's your favorite flourish or what looks the best. It's if the name of the flourish fits the look of the move. If that makes sense. For me it would be a toss up between DM's Fly and...

    Blink Help

    I finally got around to buying Genesis and I love it but 'Blink' is giving my a lot of problems. It doesn't look too hard I just don't understand. When Andrei teaches the mechanics, his thumb is underneath the packet and his four fingers are on top. But when executing the move full speed his...
