In this modern world, does advancements in technology and psychological studies affect the way we magicians apply the principles you establish for the art?Why?..thanks Spidey
     
  14. 1. How important is Magician fooler type tricks to you? or do you mainly focus on social dynamic type effects?
    2. I like to know your thoughts on the PUA world, and would you consider yourself a PUA (pickup Artist)? This is strictly going on your DVD focusing on social interactions, you have some familiarity into the type of content PUA's talk about.
    3. Presentation is a big part of mentalism, Do you come up with the presentation first? or method? I only ask cause sometimes a presentation can come off as corny, magic or mentalism. mainly mentalism.
