Then don't forget to look up Simon's "Everybody's Lazy", it's another gem. Hope you've ordered "Simply Simon". Jan


I did indeed order SImply Simon. Will look up this effect as well.

Thanks!

Past-Present-Future, already mentioned above, is such a perfect trick that if you haven't learned a memorized deck yet, forget your classic pass practice for the next two months, learn the deck and the trick, and be a very happy camper.


If I had to pick my two favorite stack independent memorized deck effects, it would probably be "Past,Present, Future" (for use with a single audience participant) and "Four Part Harmony" (for use with four audience participants). However, since there are so many good and strong effects stack independent memorized deck effects out there, I'm fairly certain that I am forgetting some equally strong that I also like. But, I think that the two above-referenced ones are are the two stack independent memorized deck effects that I enjoy performing the most.

Catch me on another day and,...I'll probably have switched one or both of these out for different one(s). (grin)

Mike, good that you mention "Four Part Harmony". It's incredible strong and so often overlooked. Jan

Thanks for the validation on "Four Part Harmony". I love this effect and, for me, I find the calculation(s) required much more direct and easier to do "on the fly" than those in some of Simon's other great effects (such as "Everybody's Lazy" and "Four Stop Intersection"). Besides the ease in calculation, I also love the varied revelation presentations...each seemingly more impossible than the last one(s).

Don't get me wrong. There are so many great memorized deck effects sprinkled through out all four of Simon's books that you can't swing a dead cat without hitting many many other great ones. As such, "my favorites" just comes down to a personal (probably quirky) choice of the two that currently "speak to me". (grin)

The GEM I use in my show is the "Three-card Location" from Steve Ehlers.
Even if I sometimes change my act (adding or removing something), I keep and will always keep this killer routine !

Is Joe dead? Or what? I'm not understanding the use of the word "had". Thanks for any clarification in this regard.

What is the name of the Joe Riding routine to which you refer? Is it included in the compiled 24 newsletter ebook that I found using Google? Thanks for the info.

The trick that finally got me to learn a mem deck was 'The Zen Master' from Scams & Fantasies, Darwin Ortiz. What a baffling, well constructed effect. Someone performed this for me and I immediately picked up a copy of Bound To Please by Aronson.

I've been reading Simply Simon and am really enjoying his work on the concept of the open index. I felt somewhat validated in that I came up with some of the ideas that Simon had independently. I've been using an impression device (Labco Mindbuster Mini) in conjunction with the Tamariz stack to do ACAAN. The effect has been very very well received. To me, this section of the book was worth the price of the entire book. Still haven't decided on my favourite effect from the book yet.

Hello, All.

I still trying to find out the name (and source?) of the above-referenced Joe Riding memorized deck effect. Any information in these regards would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
