I suppose you could say I shed a new skin in 2008. Improved like heck, if you ask me. Right now, I'm watching my noob videos I shot last year at the beginning of 2008, and I am absolutely disgraceful at that time. Of course NOW, I'm sure many will agree I'm much better. I've learned that the trick itself is raw power. Potentially dangerous. But this can't be delivered to the audience without showmanship. You must slowly guide the audience into the effect, and channel the power of the trick properly. No matter how easy/hard the trick is, it's NOTHING without showmanship. I've also started creating tricks, so that's cool... In 2009! I plan to get some of my tricks published, and improve on my showmanship and presentation. I have to keep up my sleights, and I'm gonna learn more and more. Did I win the cards?
