For all it's worth, here are my thoughts: Quasiphoto-- Great trick and presentation. I like the fact that it's sleightless, but could play very well on stage/parlor. I think the trick could be combined with a memorizing the deck routine. Visa 2.0-- I like how Jeff is able to explain how he revised someone else's trick because of real world feedback from performances. This gives me confidence that the material on the DVD is real, and not just envisioned in an opium dream. Miser's Nightmare-- You've got some great vanishes with four ungimmicked coins, including the SS Vanish, which is worth 25$ as a stand alone item. I mean, how many times could the average magician use a clean, gimmickless, impromptu vanish that does not use sleeves, lapping, etc.? Under My Skin: Loved the premise. I think this could be routined with “Sucked Up.” I love the effect “Slapped Flat.” It's an overlooked, inexpensive trick from Elmwood magic. This could also be routined with “Under My Skin” for a killer climax. Dollar Bill to Twinkie: Killer, killer stuff. If a magician can't get comedy out of a dollar bill in a Twinkie, then he ought to take up Amway instead. This is really clean, or as clean as digging a dollar bill out of a Twinkie can get. For the guy who's looking for a stage routine, this is it. It's easy to do, and you could set this up 15 minutes before the show with a stop at a 7-11. I'm not recommending this, but to paraphrase the bumper sticker, “Feces Occurs.” The line and justification for tearing the bill is priceless. A lot of magicians feel like they get their money's worth if they get one good trick –the real pros would just as soon have one golden line that means the difference between doing tricks like an automaton and performing real entertainment.
