Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by j.bayme, Feb 27, 2010.

  1. In this new world of internet technology, would you prefer to go back to the old ways with learning coming from the books, or are you satisfied with where the art is going?

    Also, what's it like to be friends with Chris Kenner? Seems like a good guy to go out for a drink with haha.
  2. What is YOUR favorite effect on RICE PAPERS? WHY?
  3. Have you received any inspiration of effects from watching the 2010 Winter Olympics?
  4. How did you get into magic?!
  5. 1. What is the most difficult coin sleight that you have come across?

    2. What resources do you recommend for beginners in coin magic?

    3. Who, in your opinion, is the most influential coin worker in magic?

  6. Homer the king of coins

    what was the first trick that inspired you to start doing magic(coins,cards,rubber bands...)
  7. What do you enjoy most about magic?
    What reminds you of a magic trick but is not really a trick (like a song or movie)?
    What gets your inspiration?
  8. Hey Homer Simpson...I mean Homer Liwag,

    1. I love how your work is so fluid and free-flowing. What is the process for practicing a new effect or your own effect?

    2. We all know how Asians automatically rock. How did you make CoinONE one of the most beautiful coin effects of all time? How was it different than other coins-across routines?

    3. What was the funniest occurrence that happened while either shooting a new DVD or working for David Copperfield? Fill us in.

    Good luck with all of your future projects that are to come, especially Rice Papers. Can't wait to see how those effects look.

    Now we all make mistakes, but that pass in the Blooper real was an EPIC FAIL. I almost shat myself after laughing so hard! You crack me up Homer. You really do.
