....just thinking about this and wanted to see what ya'll think..... Are magicians too worried about who does this change, and who does this move, and whats this shift variation, and whats this revisited sleight? Personally Im getting sick of stuff like the S.W.E shift, and how Chris says "This is like a golf swing.... that it will take a hundred tries to get it right. And you wont be able to get it down good untill like, the thousandth time. And when you get it right, that one out of a hundred times, it feels good...." I mean COME ON! Who really wants to invest money in a move like that. And why the hell are there so many different variations of the same basic move (getting a card to the top for example). Really? Theres shifts, passes, bluff passes, slips, controlls, and they all do the EXACT SAME THING! Yet we all seem to be sooo obsessed with who knows this shift, and who knows the variation of it, and who knows the remastered/ revisited method of that variation of that shift. And then, another 1-1 comes out teaching us YET ANOTHER shift, or pass, or bluff pass, or slip, or controll, or random useless move like the S.W.E shift. Are we becoming so obsessed with what moves we use/know that we really forget what the purpose of the moves are (ie controlling a card to the top.) Thus forgetting the overall purpose of controlling it to the top. So we can produce an amazing effect to entertain our audience. And really, thats the only reason we perform. To entertain, and amaze. Now, of course we all have our prefrences. In which I mean, we all take different roads to get to the same amazing prestige. And, yes, I do think diversity in moves is important for keeping up dextarity, and to keep your repetitive audiences on their toes. But come on. When is enough enough? For me, enough was the S.W.E Shift. And plus, ts just getting annoying how there are soooo many different Shifts, and Passes, and Bluff Passes, and Slips, and Cuts and whatever. I mean, come on.
