Mickey Hades lives in Calgary. Don't know who Mickey is? Google him. He's been in magic FOREVER, as an inventor, performer, and collector. Look up his table; it's brilliant. He lives three or four blocks from the magic shop where I work. And Brent, the owner of the shop, just bought every single issue of Apocalypse magazine ever printed from Mickey for a buck a piece. Don't worry; Mickey still has three of them all. Don't know what Apocalypse is? It's a magazine that ran from 1978-1998, published by Harry Lorayne. It had the latest tricks from the brightest minds in magic inside, with Harry's thoughts and twists to them included. The magazines were originally 3 bucks apiece. Don't know who Harry Lorayne is? Get out from under that DVD player and read something! Anyhoo, I was flipping through the stack of musty mags and came across the July, 1982 volume, and guess what's on the cover. Jonathan Townsend's version of John Ramsey's Cylinder and Coins. If you do any coin magic at all, you know that that's the holy grail of coin routines. The cylinder and coins that Ramsey performed is now a classic; it could take a lifetime to learn every detail of that routine. I now have some learning to do. And I'm totally excited. The point of this thread? Go find some old magic books!!! It's where you find the good stuff. I'm sure you've heard that before, but I'm proving that it's true right now! And now, I will vanish for a few hours, to read... Scott.
