got that right! I normally can stretch em out to 2 or 3 weeks of use, but they aren't good enough for performing by the third week, but i don't have much money so i have to use em as long as i can, haha.
I do carry cards at all times. Agreed that the world is more than just magic and its important to experience all that u can but I always carry cards but with the mentality that I am always going to perform, of course that's not the case but I think its important to always be prepared especially once u start to get more noticed and are being asked to perform since you are now known as the magician at work/school etc . . . I keep a deck in my desk drawer another in my car glove compartment and obviously the one in my pocket.
When I grab my wallet, keys, and cell phone, right next to them are my simple close-up props that I quickly throw into my front right pants pocket. It usually includes a deck or cards with a steel clip (helps protect the cards so they last longer), a silver morgan or two, and a sharpie. I can do all sorts of things with those, so it keeps everything pretty simple.
While going to school, hardly ever. I don't want to interrupt class or stir up anything while in school. Yea, I may do something occasionally. I used to have a deck of Tallys in the front pocket of my backpack everyday because some kids on the bus wanted to see some magic. This kid brought his own CVS cards and I did everything from a borrowed deck and it was wild! But now, I just sleep on the bus because I'm tired by the end of school and what-not. To other places? Either I forget or I just don't want to, simply because there isn't a time when a stranger comes up to me and says "Hey dude can I see a card trick?"
But anyways, I don't really bring a deck of cards with me unless I'm playing some poker during lunch (no cheating... ) or have the intention of performing magic every opportunity I can get.
There's plenty of strong material you can do without cards, and it's sort of an unusual thing to carry around in your pocket, so I think it's better just to do without it. I usually have a couple of quarters though.
Yep, almost always. They just hang out in my murse (male purse ). I have a deck of cards, with odd backed card for Chicago Opener, Twilight Angel card with mirror in my murse, WOW 2.0 gimmick, Two rubber bands, Fairytale Frogs cards, Woman's Intuition cards setup, Ultimate Oil and Water cards, and some change in my pocket for Matrix.
Anyway, I always keep my deck of cards with me and I always make sure it has at least one dupe. I carry around 4 toonies and my coin shell for my coins across. Sometimes a raven for my retention vanish. Then some invisible thread for my levitating ring trick!
Most of the time I will throw a deck in my pocket but as it was mentioned earlier by a married man...it drives my wife insane. It actually kind of embarrasses her because she knows someone, somewhere will ask me to perform and then it is all down hill from there...ha ha.
