What’s in your pockets?

  1. I’m more curious what everyone carries with them day to day?

    For instance I have been really trying to get better at coin magic. so now the only magic I carry around is 4 Morgan’s, a dollar sized Chinese coin, and tiny hand.

    Jus curious what y’all are working on and or just what your pocket management is haha.

    Thanks, Marc.
  2. What I carry sounds like a lot but it really isn't that bad lol
    • A Deck of Cards
    • Real Man's Wallet
    • Loops
    • 2 Half Dollars
    • A Mismade bill
    • Magic Insurance
    • Rubber Bands
    • My Phone
    The only really "extra" thing I carry is my deck because most of the other stuff fits in my wallet and it's not hugely inconvenient to have rubber bands on my wrist.
    Occasionally I'll carry a couple D-Lites or Spongeballs if I know I'll be interacting with kids.

  3. What I carry is-

    ●2 decks of playing card

    ●Rubber band

    ●A folded card in a small case for performing mentalism

    ●A pen (I don't get a sharpie in my place )

    ●Few coins

    ●My headphones (for effects like iloopy pull )

    ●Few small chits of paper for mentalism

    ●Paper clips(for switching, linking and even for some other cool effects )

    I am basically a card magician .I love to go to the streets with cards but I carry the rest too:)
  4. I have been really interested in giving rubber and Magic a shot. Any good starting suggestions?
  5. My every day carry is a bit much I think.
    • one deck of cards sometimes two
    • a sharpie
    • two types of rubber bands (six bands total)
    • a ring
    • four .50 cent pieces
    • occasionally 4 peace dollars but almost never use them impromptu.

    My everyday carry pocket management isn't too in depth. I keep my sharpie in my right pocket, and keep that pocket and my back left open for ditching. Wouldn't want my coins talking. With the fall coming up soon I will usually have a jacket making carrying stuff easier and gives me the opportunity to wear a pull.
  6. For strolling I usually carry the following:

    -deck of cards
    -ninja+ fusion
    -bottle opener
    -bottle of coke/beer + holdout

    Usually do the bottle production for special ovcasions, but lately I have been doing it more and more with my ring act.
  7. If i'm not booked for a show, and I'm just out and about, I basically just have my cards, a sharpie and some loops in my wallet.
    If I go out with the actual intent to perform i'll add more, rubber bands, headphones, balloons.

  8. Oh man. I'm not entirely sure tbh. I've picked up most of it individually from other magicians teaching me so I don't have too many sources but here are a few that Ik the name of:
    • Jacob's Ladder by Danny Garcia (I think)
    • Missing Link by Chris Kenner
    • Stairway by Marcus Eddie

  9. For EDC I don't carry anything specific to magic. If I'm going to do a casual performance, it will be propless.

    If I'm hired to do strolling I'll generally carry a small notebook which I use for a couple different reveals, a voodoo doll, and maybe Dream Lock or Free Will. I will also have my phone but I don't really use that for much because I tend to want to avoid technology in my presentations.

  10. Awesome! I have been meaning to get back into rings. I started using them when I was a kid and have not picked them up since. Any good sources for a beginner?
  11. Shoot Ogawas “Ninja Rings” is where I got started. You can also check out “Worlds greatest Magic; Chinese Linking Rings” as a resource for both stage and closeup ring magic. “Messado Rings” is fun as well!

    I am sure you heard that both myself and Matthew Garrett have been promoting a series called Ninja+ as well. This combines a finger ring with Ninja Rings.

    Hope these resources are helpful. :)

  13. Cards, my coins ( inside a quiver for some switches ), and my phone.
  14. Magic related I carry loops in my wallet but they are just always there. Its summer so I don't carry anything else, now that it is cooling down and I can wear a jacket I will probably carry a deck of cards. I just don't like a lot of stuff in my pant pockets. It is uncomfortable for me

  15. I agree! That’s why I’m about coins and loops right now.
