I just finished watching all the volumes and they truly are great!
Great Magic and great thinking

I was wondering about the Rubik's cube effect from volume 1 (freaking amazing)... Has he marketed this effect? if so where can I find it.

Garrett is truly one of my favorite magicians if not my favorite, those DVDs are awsome, and I'm not sure if hes going to publish the rubix cube effect.
I have played over that tape a 100 times and I still cant figure out the method, hopefully someday I can perform it because it would be so awsome for walk around to just go up to the table and say "hey have you seen one of these before" its so new and so different.

Garrett if your out their tell us how its done!

Garrett Thomas is a great magician, and there are some real gems on the series.

In regard to the rubik's cube effect. I know how its done, and I asked him why he doesn't reveal and I remember him saying, because people won't go through the effort of learning it.

In order to do the routine you have to know how to solve the rubik's and do it very quickly. Then you make that look magical. The secret behind the routine is knowing how to solve it. that's the trick. Once you are able to comfortably solve a rubik's cube in less than 1 min you can do it, and that's why he doesn't teach it.

And if you ever have the opportunity to see him do it in person, its crazy!!

I don't have Garrett Thomas' DVDs yet so I can't comment on his orange to apple effect, but I believe that the color changing apple effect that Cyril performs is Ray Kosby's effect as seeon on his [i]Wow: It's Ray Kosby[/i] video.

I now know it is on vol 3
If anybody has it, could they please do a review/description of this one effect?
Message: Posted by: emyers99 (May 16, 2006 08:31AM)
Does anyone know where to get the combination lock Garrett uses on volume 3? He says it's a Presto brand lock but I can't find anything on the internet. Thanks.

No it is not the same thing, Garretts effect was inspired by it, but it has been changed so much its like a completely different effect.

I am the Producer of Garrett Thomas' Speed Cube DVD. Thousands and Thousands of dollars where spent filming, editing, and mass producing this DVD. However Garrett has informed me to explain to the Café that the "Speed Cube" is his most valued effect and he has descided not to release this DVD just yet. Definatly in the future you can look forward to the release of this effect, but so far Garrett has descided to keep this effect to himself for the time being.

I think we can all respect Garrett for his decision, for once in our industry a well respected magician cares about the artistic and sentamental value of a treasured effect and not the monotary value.

Im sure we all look forward to the release date on this DVD.
thanks for your time
