Have you ever been in a misunderstanding while pickpocketing? I mean somebody does not take the act as an act and as a real robbery
what is the weirdest,funniest or strange thing you have ever found in somebody pocket?
I've been a huge fan of your work (Cultural Xchange as well as your notes) and I wondered how one can practice watch stealing, pitpocketing and pickpocketing at home ? How do you rehearshed back in the days ?
Thanks, and can't wait to see more of your stuff !!
- 1. On average, how many hours a day do you practice?
- 2. Where does your first name, "Apollo", come from? More specifically, how and why was it given to you?
- 3. If you were not allowed to ever pickpocket again, what form of magic (if at all) would you start doing? Cards, coins, etc.
First off, I bought the VCR Change and it is a beautiful and deceptive color change so, Thanks..
I know you got into pickpocketing by getting under a magicians wing after the mental floss article said your half brothers were in crime and couldn't participate.. Your method now to me, seems perfected and is expertly executed with the use of misdirection and sleight of hand.. I see you approach spectators to the side to help control their attention..
So my question is how long did it take you to develop the technique of approaching someone by the side and what did you do before you developed that method of control??
Also, what kind of tools , if any, are used by pickpockets to steal wallets and misc. items??
Apollo, have you ever been pickpocketed yourself? Also, I love your routine, but what was the inspiration to shift that simple one coin routine into a full extravaganza in which you rob your spectator from their personal belongings/self control lol
I know my first watch steal sent adrenaline through my veins. So much so that I almost forgot to give it back! Do you remember what happened when you did you first watch steal or pickpocket?
You look very calm when 'working', is there a 'move' you execute that still gives you a rush?
And finally, what is one piece of advice you would want to give to those of us who are practicing our watch steals?
