Christopher and SoundWave,

What browser and browser version are you using to view the site? have you updated your quicktime player? Explain your problems in detail... have you clicked the question mark on the trailer page to view the HELP page and followed any of those steps?

Maybe I can help. let me know!

All sorted now, it seemed when I upgraded my PC I didn't re-install quicktime. All looked good. Curious as to what coins he is using? Are they soft Dollars?

So, these are not gimmicked coins? Are you sure? Perhaps Bob Kohler can help...

All I can say is what you see is what you get. While there may be lighting filters on the footage, that is exactly what the magic looks like when you see Homer do it in person. All of Homer's stuff looks this good. It makes you reconsider everything you do.

The coins aren't gimmicked, but one gimmick is used with the coins Smile

"Four Coins and a Filipino" was published in Magic Man Examiner.
"The Deep" was published in Totally Out of Control.

Even though I have both of those routines in print, I will definately get this DVD. It looks really well designed.

Both routines use the same set of coins and similar moves.

Homer's French Drop variation on that demo clip is also outstanding. It's nice looking magic.

Lastly, the problem with Internet Explorer 7 RC1 I wrote about above was fixed thanks for the heads up Al Lee...

About how many days or weeks will this be just a tease to us? How long until are ready for purchase?

Also, I know what the gimmick is, but is there anywhere I can get Soft Morgan Dollars with this gimmick? Perhaps Jamie or Todd?

Johnson, Lassen, and Schoolcraft will all let you send them a coin to make a shell out of. I'm not sure what the cost is, but you should try emailing them.

Go to http://www.schoolcraftprecisionmagic.com or http://www.coingaffs.com for the best coins made today. They have "soft" coins. They are so nice, you don't want to drop them on a hard surface!

Actually, The Deep only uses four regular coins.

Actually there is a second gaff involved...extreme skill. The good news is the instructions on Homer's DVD are exceptionally clear. While the routine does take practice Homer's methods make this routine well within reach of anybody willing to invest some practice time.

On the DVD Homer performs the routine with dollars. I think this is really the way to go because the size helps with the stunning visuals. But the routine can be done with halves, in fact I've seen Chris Korn and Andrew Goldenhersh do it with halves and it looked great in their hands. The halves may be a little easier in the beginning.

I've started to work on the routine and I can tell you the DVD instructions are way better that the printed ones. Both Homer's and Chris' routines are highly visual and you relly need to see the work to get the timing and sleights correct.

If you like coin magic or even if you don't you should buy this DVD. What elevates magic from the ordinary to the extraordinary is always one thing, the details. This DVD contains those details. I can't remember when I added a new coin trick to my repertoire but I'm adding this one.

I know everybody's drooling with anticipation. The DVD is at the replicators so when it is ready is in their hands. It won't be long...

That's great news Bob! I predict that the demand for this DVD will be overwhelming and that Homer will soon be offering the brotherhood more of his legendary underground routines!

Does anyone know why Homer is releasing this publicly(Does he figure everyone and their brother already have learnt it?)

Just wondering, I've always liked this routine and the variations/improvements and suprised to see its release.

I can't speak for Homer, but I've only seen two others, Chris Korn and Andrew Goldenhersh perform the routine. I'm not sure how many folks are already using it. As far as improvements and variations are concerned I'm going to do it exactly as Homer teaches it on the DVD. It certainly has the jaw-dropping WOW factor.

I've been going through the test DVD for Homer today and it's actually much easier to do than I thought. I do a lot of coin work but nothing like this routine. I really was expecting it to be tougher. The DVD makes it a million times easier to learn than from the written text.

What's really great is obviously I use U3F when I have an audience in the proper setting. Homer's routine is perfect when the situation is more intimate and the audience is "all over you".

Bob, thanks a lot for the information on the routine. I am excited to get it when it is released.

A question - is Homer Liwag a real person or is he a fictional person? On the dvd trailer you never see a face, just some stunning coin magic.

I think I remember a little routine called "Four Coins, Your Hands" Smile but then again its now been a few years ago now since I first showed you that.

BTW, I heard Chad Long does Homer's routine really well (never seen it personally though).

I incorporated Homer's "Visibly through the coin across that never goes" move into my Coinvention Crossing routine, as well as the subsequent retrieval. But now that I SEE Homer's retrieval, it looks way better than what I was doing!!
