    -Doug
     
  9. Actually I recently have been studying the coin on shoulder for about a week and I was wondering how much you perform this and would you have any advice you can give me about diversion etc and how to execute it well?

    -Jake
     
  10. Dear Mr. Liwag,

    1) I have gotten Modern Coin Magic by JB Bobo, and its an excellent start for me. However, i want to expand my coin work by getting CoinOne. Any tips for expanding the knowledge after CoinOne? Like getting new material?

    2) Even though Chris Kenner and Dan and Dave said you have the worst hands in magic, and i saw a picture of them in your CoinTwo Extended Trailer on YouTube, how do you use your "bad hands" to your advantage?

    3) Would you prefer impromptu coin magic over gimmick coin magic? Vise versa? And why?

    -Perceptiv3
     
  11. 1) How many hours or how do you practice your coin work?

    2) Where do you think magic is heading now? In other words is magic where it was 10 to 20 years ago?

    3) What inspired or pushed you to try to make the perfect coins across? (Reffering to what you said in CoinTwo)

    By the way you are AMAZING!!!! and thank you Chris and Homer for the CoinTwo DVD. Im the guy on iTricks. ;)
