    When to be Funny?

    You gotta perform these effects the way that feels right to you. Patter and timing always change. Reactions will always vary. You have to be you. Don't get twisted up on what's appropriate. Think outside the box. You wanna make a joke about your pulse stopping, do it. If you wanna be...

    Money & Magic :: Would It Make A Difference?

    The stock idea is always on my mind. I'm a firm believer. However. I've done stage shows on a dime! It would be great to put together a nicer stage show. 10k would definitely help. Not just spray painted plywood, muslin, mentalism and the vanishing bandanna. I would get some nice...

    This is just plain SICKENING

    It's interesting. The Morgan thing.... I don't think we know all the details there. From what I understood, Morgan performed that guys trick. I may be mistaken, and I will stand corrected if wrong. The only thing you can do to fight the problem is to promise not to buy a magic maker...

    First Coin Trick

    Bobo rocks. Is it wierd that the first coin sleight I learned was not french drop, but Downs Palm? Just a thought that popped into my head. Books vs. DVDs for coin conjuring. It's a tough battle, I truly believe books are better, though looking at a printed page becomes more daunting...

    How to deal with "I'll look it up on the internet" help

    That's one reason to hate the internet. There's no secret anymore. Most magic tricks can be found performed poorly or tutorialed on youtube. And youtube doesn't care. It's just magic. Ugh. If someone wants to ruin the trick for themselves, fine. It's your disappointment. When I think...

    Big Problem...

    Work on patter! Think about presentation and routining. There's plenty you can do in your state. Think about beats. Comedy. How can I freshen up my show. Maybe some mentalism... hypnosis... best I can do.

    Your Three Favourite Magicians

    Cyril is the best I've seen, Barry and Stuart for their wit and presentation, and David Blaine for his contribution to bringing magic back into the limelight. I'm gonna throw in a least favorite. I hate even saying the word favorite in the same sentence... but.... Chris Angel is my absolute...

    Your first magic book?

    I didn't start magic pre-internet... But my first books were Mark Wilson's Complete Course, Royal Road, and J.B.Bobo's Modern Coin Magic. Books are better than DVDs for two big reasons. There's more information packed into a book than there is in a DVD. Also, learning from a DVD tempts you...
