Hello all
I saw this advertised on Murphys and at Antinomymagic. I was wondering if anyone has read it and would like to review it here? I have seen Rick's act many times and I love it but I know that his act is not explained in the notes. I will most likely be getting it soon, I just wanted to know if anyone already had it.

Is he the guy the ends with a ton of sharpies coming from his sleeves? If so, he was definately the highlight of last year's MagiFest. The best act of the week by far. He does the most amazing sleeving I've ever seen.

Rick Merrill is awesome - his notes are excellent - some of the nicest looking notes, also - they are made by the same person who publishes antinomy magazine (and if you have ever seen that you will know the quality I am referring to).
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Every time I see Rick perform, he blows me away. His pen routine is fantastic, as is his jumbo coin manipulation.

I highly recommend these notes - You'll learn a lot of great material from them - and any other Antinomy publication. His thoughts on the Classic Force are extremely good reading.

I can vouch for his work on the classic force! You can try to mess him up, but he's still going to force it on you. It's that good!

I remember watching him practice his sleeving technique, a few times. He put some serious work into and he does it without a jacket. His is among the best technique I've ever seen!

This book is being square in shape which is different I think to other books.
Think not what magic can do for you, but what you can do for magic.

He has three items in his notes that use a Sharpie.

Item one

The magician produces a coin and a Sharpie Marker. Both objects transpose in a magical and humorous sequence of events. For a finish both items vanish at the same time.

Item Two

The magician causes a Sharpie to vanish and reappear.

Item Three

Same as item two except at the end the Sharpie turns into a No 2 pencil.

I hope to have the dvd this weekend, I ordered it on Monday.

Here are the contents.

The Predator Sock
Ambitious Card Triumph
Three Change
Sharpie & Coin
No Hand Vanish
No Hand Change

As an added bonus there is Rick's performance of close up magic as shown at the convention where the dvd was shot.
