Well, I want to know what Joel Paschall thinks of all this contradictory.
Anyways, this was insanely unoriginal, once again. I'd take a simple ace pro over this pile of *garbage*any day.
Anybody who argues that this is a good product and it is 'ONLY' 5 bucks is obviously a n00b or a t11 fanboi. Seriously, if you have no knowledge on the matter, don't bother posting because in the eyes of people with a bit of experience, strait up saying 'this is worth 5 bucks, your wrong' is a meaningless opinion.
No offence, it's like me giving Derren Brown mentalism tips.
22ND EDIT!!!! by sean: please, don't be like the ellusionist forums.. dam modsd here- if your gonna edit my post state exactly where you edited it. it's called freedom of speech and if you don't like my opinion at least state the exact point of the post where your taking away my rights. and don't edit this part kuz that would be totally contradictory.
On another thread, regarding static, that other terrible 1on1 which was released by JP, some one said 'If this exact cut has been published before, then I'll call it unoriginal,' which made me chuckle a little and at the same time be somewhat horrified by the fact that he's been doing this so long and still has such a tiny knowledge of stuff like this.
If you don't know what your saying, and haven't been doing this for that long, please don't bother arguing that this is worth any money at all, because for anybody who knows their stuff knows it isn't, in any way.
Plus, why'd ampersan5340's comment get deleted? I thought he had the best point so far this thread.
Hey guys just got in and wanted to say hello, just got done at Cal magic and it was a fantastic night! Great magic awesome crowd it was really sweet. As far as all the posts are concerned I think there all awesome you guys are talkin', this is a good thing. Some good with a positive direction some just plain angry rants, I believe both are good.
Bikey if you wonder why you are being edited I can only say maybe it's your approach? (just a guess) We at T-11 here believe in respect,, we respect people that respect magic and love the views that every one shares. Disagreements are great, imagine the forums without them? (boring) Now being rude is a different subject all together, no one likes an ******* (write that down) and if we create an environment where we let things like that fly, is that some where you really wanna call home? ( oh yeah decknique rules, sorry forgot). That is just not the environment we wish to create, I hear what you are trying to say (sometimes) you could just really articulate it a lot better. if you put half the passion you have towards being creative as you do your posts, man you could really go places.
As far as the the value of a 1-on-1 i will say this. It's a HD video shot with multiple camera angles and lighting, expert editing (Wayne and Dana rule!) It's taught clearly from some one qualified to teach. Yes. They are worth every penny. You just can't get the quality on a free tutorial (youtube etc.) and even if you could (maybe decknique I'll have to check), if someone put that much work into something only to give it away, well this to me is just crazy.
Now as far as your opinion (this pile of garbage!). You don't like any of my 1 on 1's. okay thats fine. That i get just say that and leave it at that (articulating) That's your opinion and it's one you are intitled to. I asked you for creative feed back and you didn't really offer any (in the PM I sent you) You have passion brother use it. You speak as most do on these posts as one who cannot truley say any thing on the subject because you haven't purchased any you simply don't know. I have received a lot of very positve feed back from a lot of the people that have purchased ( Thank You All) They have a right to speak they have sat on both sides of the fence.
The 1-on-1's were not put out to just make a buck. I wanted to share with the magic community the things I use in my every day work. Also things that i plan to really show the full potential, applications and uses for in the future. Fan control, a much overlooked control ( I did not invent nor ever claimed to and fully explained that fact on the video, I just tweaked it a little) allows confidense, establishes trust from a spectator ( this is important) Static an old cut, not my best ( as far as looks) but it's one I use and has practical uses in my every day card work ( contoling muliple selections, shifting specific # of cards at will etc.) It's easy and just feels nice. Tripple shuffle old,old ,really old ,not stolen, old, way before encylopedia ever came out, OLD! It's flashy fun, also something I Use and people really seem to like, again something i use and has many other applications in my work. This brings us to the ace cutting sequence ( did i miss any?) It is a sequence I use all the time. The sequence is good and will get people's attention ( I did it tonight) The reason i taught it is the very same reason I created it. I was looking for a routine that would allow me to entertain and practice the ace cutting met both these requirements ( now you know the history). If you know what you are looking at you will understand that it is a utility move ( I use it so much in my work it's not even funny). If it is a "Basic move in the public domain", then that really sucks cause thats a whole slew of years I'm never getting back! Once the skill is aquired it is something you can count on and has many other applications.
So if you simply don't like it than that's ok , my style is not for everbody and this also is good because the walk is about your style. It's about you and the Art. Striving to push forward, bringing the piece that you have to offer to the table for the next generation. This is something i am working towards, the 1 on 1's were simply part of my foundation and i will bring my piece to the table.
Got to go yall. Goodnight.
