Buy this DVD. This DVD is sick. I saw uncut footage of this when I was in vegas. Keep in mind, THIS IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS. Atleast have a few flourish DVDs before you try to do most of this stuff. Otherwise don't buy it because you wont be able to do any of it.

Most likely not.

Still worth it though, just a little harder to learn from

Well, like I said in another post. Brian is one of those guys that he wants you to learn his stuff but at the same time he doesn't. This way you don't have these 12 year old punks hacking up his material at conventions thinking they are hot shiznit. At the same time him not teaching it that well is the reason these people are hacking it up a crappy looking, simply because they couldn't learn it right. Basicly, if you are not at least half way skilled at cuts and flourishes don't buy it. I get mine for free so I cant really complaine.

HA! I wonder what it woulda been like if good ol' Brian just did a performance-ONLY video of GenX, so that people would have to REALLY "learn" the stuff by watching it frame-by-frame... that would indeed be teh LOLLERSKATES.

But yeah, did anyone see the email that penguin sent out regarding this? It made a chuckle quite a bit... hehe.

Actually the email said that the reason Tudor made this new video is that he realized that the first one sucked when it came to teaching. So, I don't know if this is a total remake of the first or just expanding the first video. I hope it's a complete remake and he doesn't act like such a tool on this one.

If he realized it sucked he should allow us to trade our crap genx for the new ones.

I agree Jordini. And he should let us break a thumb off him or something so we can catch up. Smile

I say let him make as many "Fast Flourish" dvds. No matter what there will be those certain people that's going to buy it. Do you think he would slow down in performance or teaching when a new "Cyclone" comes along? I'm waiting for that day. You can't be good all the time. There is always someone better. WHO? Who knows, we won't know unless someone comes forward and demos his or her's stuff.

oh yeah, buy the gen x remake, it's a lot better than the first. rehash, remake, who cares you know you want to add it to your library of crap, I know I did.

From the Penguin site:

"Throughout your training you'll destroy five or more decks per day."

Is this true? I cannot afford to be using over five packs of cards a day. Say, a couple of hours of practice a day..

CTG:

if you believed what you mentioned, please be aware that they also stated this

Warning: Don't buy this DVD. Almost no one can actually do the stuff you're about to see. It's aggressive, showy, complex, impossibly fast, and freakish. Once you master it, your spectators may notice only one tenth of what they're supposed to see... and only one one-hundredth of what is actually happening. That's no way to live... pick up a Svengali deck and be happy.

You'll ruin the decks because once you try to learn from Brian Tudor, you will tear your decks apart out of frustration.

If generation extreme is really 39.258 times better than Gen X as far as teaching goes, I shall eat my hat*
