well, i just recently realized this and i thougt it would be nice to share this thought, especially for the not so experienced magicians,so here we go: always value your tricks, and never underestimate them! when i got started with magic, what i did, probably like some of you too, was i learned alot of quite easy tricks, the stuff you get at E for example. after i saw the possibilities there are performed by outstanding artists like dan and dave or lee ashe just to name two of them, i thought i totally wasted my time. until the other day, when i just performed a short impromptu ambitious card with some DL and as the grand finale a shapeshifter, and i noticed that my audience (ok, there were only 3 people, but let's call it audience anyways) was totally blown away, and they thought i was a master magician or something. that really opened my eyes, so i wanted to pass whyt i've learned on to you. never underestimate the effect, as easy as it may seem to you. always push the pattern, and act like crazy around your easiest routine, you will get great reactions! never forget that most people don't know anything about how magic works, and don't act casual about what you're doing, always build up tension, like you're going to do something great, because to your audience it will most likely seem that way. i think there are gonna be alot of comments of magicians who do magic for a longer time and therefore know what i'm talking about, and i say bring it on! this is definetely an opportunity to educate less experienced magicians, and i decided to take it, and i hope so will you!
