DVD's are for super losers, and so are books and videos!
In my day we used our imaginations to come up with our own tricks while blasting out Foreigner on the eight-track.
Our magic rocked hard, but wasn't very entertaining.
Most of us went on to different careers, some learned to read and even watched a little TV. We battled with alcohol and drugs, and those of us who made it through those heady days still feel we were right about how you should do magic.
No books, no dvds, no videos.

It's been a long time since I've laughed out loud at something I've read online. Thank You. It makes it even funnier that no one got it...

Ammar, Ammar & Ammar, ETMCM 1-9 definitely. NOt the greatest performer but the best to teach really strong and powerful effects.

One of my favorites sets are Brain Storm Card Magic by Guasteferro, the effects are strong, simple and devastating methods, and great presentations

I've found Ammar's ETMCM series useful. I like books better, though.

IMO (notice the distinct lack of H in that), books are only better because they are so much more commonly used as media by big names. You just can't find as much stuff on video as in books. Besides that, I'm sure you guys think that spurning videos and reading books makes you look that much more hardcore . . .

Anyway weapon, I don't own a lot of magic DVD's, and the ones that I have aren't the advanced DVD's your probably talking about (some Oz Pearlman, Greg Wilson . . . stuff like that). I hear Martin Nash's DVD's are almost unbeatable, though. I've also heard a lot of good things about The Cardician series by Marlo. Sorry I couldn't be more deffinite. As far as the stuff I have, Watch Magic by Oz Pearlman has a routine that I use, as does "Stealing Pips" by him. Greg Wilson (I have Pyrotechnic Pasteboards) is just fun to watch . . . god I wish I could see him live.

Well, I think there is MUCh to be learned from books AND DVD's! DVD's show you what a sleight should look like, timing etc. Books will give you much more info on subtleties and the fine points.

never heard of dvds where the teacher tells you the subleties also??
