    Pre-Thoughts on "Houdini's Last Secrets"?

    So I was watching Myth Busters today on the Science Channel and saw a commercial for a new special they'll be doing called "Houdini's Last Secrets". The show will air on January 6th, 2019. The show is essentially going to look at the science and methods behind many of Houdini's biggest tricks...

    Magicians - best spectators & worst audience

    What's up guys, I just wanted to write a bit about something I've been thinking about, and hopefully we can get a good discussion out of it :). My point here is going to be simple. When watching a performance, Magicians are both the best and the worst audience at the same time. How is this...

    Fire Eating

    Hey guys, I have been really intrigued with fire eating for a while now. I've been thinking that I might try learning it this summer. However, I do have some MAJOR questions before I even think about learning it. First off, is it worth it? The reason I want to learn it the most right now is...

    Recreating your own version

    A lot of products are on the market that use a gimmick or a tool that you cannot create at home easily and/or cheaply. For that reason, they are are always sold as completed pieces. However, what if someone wanted to create their own own personal version for self-use. Take Odyssey for example...

    Combining Shorts

    Hey guys. I had an idea recently, but am not sure if it would work. My idea essentially relies on having various types of short cards in a single deck, and using that to locate certain cards. Would it be possible to combine various types of short cards in a single deck? Is it possible to have a...

    Mentalism vs Mental Magic and where to start

    I've heard so many different variations of the definition of these 2 things that I'm not sure which is which. This thread is here to try and find a loose definition. From what I understand, Mental Magic is a form of magic where you use intuition and intelligence about something to gain...

    Performance vs Other Magicians

    Would you guys rather: A) Have a great performance and entertain the audience, but be criticized on a ton of things in it by other magicians OR B) Have an OK performance, but be praised by a lot of other magicians. And why? Personally, I would choose option A. Some magicians just want to hate...

    Substitutions for Rope

    Rope magic is one of my favorite types of magic. However, if someone is going to do a casual performance, or one that is Guerilla or walk up style, a rope is kind of a weird thing to have with you. I recently read about a great rope trick, but didn't really know where to go with it in a more...

    Dr. Daley

    I always assumed Dr. Daley was a fictional character for the "Dr. Daley's last trick" plot, but I was recently going through the Jinx magazine and the table of contents had another trick called "Dr. Jacob Daley's cups and balls" (or something). So I was wondering if he was a real person...

    Is it wrong to keep a secret from the magic world?

    A lot of times in trailers for products, you hear people say "I have been working on this selfishly for myself for [insert large sounding number here] years, and I am finally releasing it to you guys", or something along those lines. My question is this: If one were to spend a long long time on...

    Half-Baked Products

    Is it just me, or has there been an influx in random products that seem like half-baked ideas? I've been getting updates about a lot of products, and they either seem like they are made to sell quick, or they are just not very practical as actual products. Don't get me wrong, there have been...

    Lost Motivation

    Hey guys, So as some of you may remember, I got a knee injury over a year ago that hasn't gotten better too much (yet). I've been on crutches for over 2 months now I think, and due to my lack of an ability to stand normally (due to crutches and/or the pain in my knee), I honestly have not been...

    Injured (and Annoyed)

    So for over a year now, I have had a busted up knee that I hurt multiple times (playing soccer, doing some stupid stuff in a pile of rocks, racing and slipping down stairs :D, and other just straight up dumb stuff, followed by pushing through the injury). Turns out I shifted my knee cap over a...

    Stigmata - Knife Routine

    First off, this is NOT the Wayne Houchin effect. Just thought I would clear that up. So for the longest time, I keep going back and watching this "spinning cups routine" by Brian Brushwood which I ran across when I first started doing magic: He has said that it is the "Russian Spinning Cups...

    Spamming on the Forums

    Is there anything you guys can do about the random stuff being spread all over the forum. Every other day there's an ad for something completely unmagic related most of which are probably scams, and a lot of them are very ... inappropriate. I saw "new profile posts" and it is just spammed with...

    A Game of C.A.R.D.S.

    So I just thought of this, wondering if anyone has tried anything like it before. Essentially, it's you vs your friends in a game of HORSE (or SKATE, or anything with that sort of game format), but you are doing things with cards. It's a minimum of 2 people (which is normally what the games...

    Systematic Cutting To Control

    So a while back, I started messing around with an idea to have a deck in New Deck Order or a stack and use a system of crimps, cuts, and sleights to get to any card. This has had many uses, but I want to know if something similar has existed and where I can find it. I'm sure I'm not the first...

    The Financial Side

    So I've been thinking... I have really been enjoying magic these last 2 and a half (or so) years, and I'm kind of thinking of possibly doing it as my profession. I have this year and the next left in High school. If I can start performing regularly and start getting a few gigs by the time...

    False Deals Don't Always Need to be Perfect

    So I've been messing around with the idea of using a second deal to get the second card into the spectators hands. I have a he deck face up with a blank card on top (facing everyone). I tilt the deck upwards towards me as I gesture to them and have them hold out their hand in a specific way (the...
