Hey guys, recently I have noticed that I have been focusing on card tricks as the way of performing magic. I realized this when my High School has a rule about no cards because it could be for gambling. It got me thinking that I don't know many other tricks that don't involve cards. I find it interesting that this site also relies on card tricks and cardistry and doesn't have a wide variety of other magic. Also recently there have been lots of posts about what deck to use or what kind of CARD tricks to get. I'm not saying it's bad to do card tricks but it's not good if you heavily rely on cards because there might be a moment where you don't have your cards and you simply cannot do any tricks because you've relied to much on just one genre of magic. That recently happened to me when I could not do an effect and just had to tell them no. I think it's wrong to turn someone down if they genuinely want to see magic. Anyway my new goal is trying to find DVD sets or books that have an expanded variety on general magic, stuff that can be found in the everyday world. I heard the DVD function (9) is a good DVD to get but I'm quite unsure because they're mixed reviews.
