H.W., thank you; I'll pass your compliment on to the artist, a pro artist who is friend of mine. He tried to take no payment for it, so I gave him a Captain Atom Archives hb. (You're right, this is off-topic. Shame on us!) For anyone who asks: yes, that is a yo-yo in my left hand.

I have to add myself to the list. Last week I also had a dream about Richard. I was watching him perform amazing unseen mind reading material live, just a few feet from me. I think later we were at a restaurant with his wife and I remember a guy about my age there too, though I don't remember who he was as he was not with me.

This is getting spooky, all these dreams. Is there an analyst in the house?

Scott,

We plan to make the Digital Feedback calculators available again within a very short time. The design will be a bit different, but I have been using the new version for a month or so and it is working out. So please just give us a bit of time to redo the book and make some of these new ones.

Thanks so much.

His prediciton becomes true. Anabell, don't you remember that that unknown guy was me ;-)))))

But seriously, Thanks for the info about the Digital Feedback Richard, since I also wanted to ask you about it. Please inform us as soon as it gets out so I can get one before it is unavailable again, what surely will be the case after some have watched your new DVD set.

That's my prediction!

Greetings
Thomas

Looks like Final Answer is based on an idea from Tarbell.
That's the Q&A that I currently perform!!!

I really would like to know about Osterlind's take on this, the booklet that comes with the props sounds great!


Juan and I have corresponded on PM's and I greatly appreciate his input. Yes, the basic idea can be found in Tarbell. It is based on a mind reading routine by Harold Sterling and I think that is where I got my idea originally. (The book with the outfit explains the background of where I got the idea.) But, the whole routine has been updated and streamlined. The slips are specially printed (this was really expensive and took some work) and the methodology allows the act to be much more deceptive.

I hope that clears up the issue.

I knew that Richard's Take on this would be great.
While the original idea can be found in Tarbell, Richard has in fact taken it to new heights (what else could you expect?).

There are several benefits over the original Tarbell Act.
The most impressive being the prop used, which makes everything to be as clean as it could be!

I can't wait for the vids to arrive.
And I'll be ordering a "Final Answer" as well, you can be sure of that.

Take Care

If we need replacements, are they something we could make/have made on our own or would we order from your website?

Thanks!

Brandon,

We will be offering replacement slips on our site. They will come in packages of 250 for $20. The numbering and perforation accounts for the price, but a batch that large will last for quite a few shows.

Darn you Richard! I have been using this (with some updates of my own)for about 20yrs, LOL. I have always thought this is one of those great routines that have been buried and forgotten. Aside from Tarbell, I also came across it in the old booklet "Grant's Fabulous Feats of Mental Magic" by Don Tanner.

I too had updated the crtical prop and suspect I hit upon the same solution as you. Guess I will find out like everyone else when I buy the DVDs, lol.

This was the first Q&A method I ever used and boy was I SCARED! Then pleasantly shocked at the positive response! This was in 1985. Done correctly, it's great.
Cant wait to see your improvments and touches!

When you say you were scared I am hoping you can perhaps elucidate on that point. Smile

Mark,

Yes, the basic premise is also in the Grant book, however I really have to wonder about the bottomless boxes with the sliding tray, etc. Maybe it was practical, but it seems like a lot of work!

Let me know how similar your method is after you take a look at mine.

Re: Digital Feedback

The Hocus-Pocus website is definitely listing these as IN-STOCK. Not sure if this is simply an oversight or if they actually have some available, but it would be worth checking out...

Dear Richard,

This is brilliant. I'm sure Clip Line Deluxe alone will be worth the full purchase of the DVD's - the original Clip Line in itself is a master piece. I have already heard marvellous recommendations of your Six Card Repeat version "out of hand" and I can't wait to see your cards across version too "miracle flying cards" (so far I'm in love with Barrie Richardsons version - I'm sure yours are in the very same league).

It sounds like a great selections of effects - and I'm sure as always - you have taken the pragmatic real worker approach to your effects which makes them so pleasing to study, practice and perform.

Of course I've already ordered mine through LLpub - that was before I read your comment about a better offer from your own website.

Well I better start getting by christmas act planned and rehearsed, because when I receive these DVD's I will be seriously distracted.

They might still have some of the originals. My wife and I made a whole slew of them and sent them off. Since then, the design of those was discontinued. We have some new ones traveling to us as I speak. I have a show this weekend, but will get on it next week and try to get some ready. Look for it on our website.
