Just came across this 3 DVD set 'Inside The Mind Of Garrett Thomas' from L&L.
Who is Garrett Thomas? Looks like he has some great ideas.

I attended his lecture/performance at the Deceptions Convention a couple years ago. He's a very talented and creative close-up magician, with some really startling presentations. He has some stuff that might be appealing to mentalists as well, such as a very effective "think of any card you see" handling. (I'll probably buy that volume, just to study his work on that subject alone.)

He's a very skilled guy. He's got some foolers, that's for sure. His tenkai jumbo coin work is nrilliant.

These 3 DVDs by Garrett Thomas will be coming out at the end of October with the new Richard Osterlind DVDs discussed elsewhere. I have been fortunate enough to see a prerelease copy and these are fabulous! They include some of Garrett's most talked about pieces previously released such as the Big Coin Little Purse but in AMAZINGLY detailed explanation with new updates. Also included is a LOT of brand new material never before revealed by Garrett. In my opinion one of the highlights is his Brass Block - a great card to matchbox routine with a great call back. This routine had people screaming. Garrett uses it all of the time in his professional work.

If you have not heard of Garrett you will be VERY happy with these DVDs, if you already know Garrett and have seen his work, you will undoubtedly already want these. Don't miss these or the new Osterlind DVDs- both really excellent releases!

Garret's other work is great. His Ring Thing (I believe that's the name of it) is just phenomenal. An anytime, anywhere miracle that requires only a ring. Good stuff.

Garret Thomas is a sensational performer. His material is very commercial and his sleight of hand is beautiful. I didn't realize that L & L was releasing his stuff but if he performs at half of the capability he displayed at his lecture I saw a couple of years ago, these DVD's would still be worth their weight in gold.

Garret is great. Puts a lot of thought into his effects. He has an older tape out that's very good.

I will be getting these. He has some GREAT coin magic. One of the best thing's I've learned in magic was Garrett's "Big Coin, Little Purse." That routine has to be one of the greatest ever in my book. It just looks so impossible watching that jumbo coin go in and out of that tiny purse. And it is so easy to master! I think he has great ideas on magic psychology. I hope this DVD set will cover more of his thinking. Unfortunately, my copy of his VHS tape had bad audio. So it would fade in and out on some stuff. But other than that, his magic is totally worth checking out.

The Garrett Thomas and Richard Osterlind DVDs arrived at Murphy's today so they should be available at your favorite dealer any day. Both sets are really worth getting. Great stuff.

The Ring Thing is going to be sold as a separate DVD. It's currently taught on GT's video which was released a few years ago. David Blaine is going to do the ring thing on his next special. Then the DVD will be released after that, and then, every kid is going to be doing the Ring Thing.

I have never seen his ring thing, I would like to know where to get this.
Also his Hanging coins effect is really sweet. My only issue with it is he says he doesn't use soft coins which makes it a bit harder to get away with. I know he is teaching this on his set, Does anyone else perform this effect that might enlighten me?
Im waiting on the Osterlind set but I will get these after I looked through the Osterlind ones.

You can find an explanation of his ring thing in his "Any Questions?" video. It will also be explained in an upcoming DVD that will be only about awesome ring effects. Yes, everyone will be doing this.

Prediction: In a couple years, you will be able to tell a magician from a laymen because of the ring on their finger.

So, if everyone will be doing it, why jump on the bandwagon?

The difficulty level ranges from almost self-working effects (14 cents) to manipulation pieces (Ball in Bag). There is something for everyone.

I'm guilty of having an index finger ring. I've seen him live and he is superb.
