I'll get mine through tomorrow, and try to put a video of the whole performance on youtube.

Yes that was the idea
I just thought that pulling out the ONLY torn page from your wallet, and then perhaps using KK as a kicker or as part of the effect would be fun

James,
Respectfully, please don't put it on youtube. People will be able to reconstruct it.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness,
James

That was the problem I had with the video dem we put on the website! The full performance will give too much away to those who haven't purchased it yet! that's why I decided to limit the video to the reactions.

I'm sure James will know what I mean when he recieves the effect! It would be nice to have some reactions to the effect on you tube though!

Kind Regards Michael

Understood, I'll have a good grasp of what can and can't be done when I read it over.

How does this compare with Enrique Enriquez work on this same concept with any book and any page found in Mind Reading and the Secret School?

Michael,
I am very interested in your routine. Check your inbox Smile

I've worked in depth with something similar . . . mine is in the form of a letter, supposedley written by Aleister Crowley. It was inspired by Ravi Pazhur's "Raven's Book of Lies" from PS2. Basically, it is an extended version of the above routine and does not use the book.

Ravi and Enrique E. were both kind enough to consider my work, and I'd be happy to let you know what I'm doing. The core of the demonstration now entails handing a participant an envelope with a picture inside . . . they describe it perfectly before removing it themselves.

Anyhow, your routine seems like a great little bit. I look forward to hearing more about it.

Regards,
Jerome.

Hey Jerome - sounds cool - I got a similar routine I'm working on as well sans book - it involves mummified remains instead of an envelope...

How do you think this would play to a larger audience, as opposed to the intimate one-on-one shown in the demo?

I will see this routine next week. I have spoken with Michael, and it sounds very good. I would think that you could perform this for audiences of any size, and perhaps even involve multiple people in the process, as I have done with my own routine.

How would it look to have 5 or 6 people touch the page and take turns reading it?
Throw in a "Hoy ploy" and have them take their seats!

This may be something that could demonstrate group mind control, psychometry, hypnosis or hallucinations of sorts.

I'm excited for the possibilities in presentation. I'll keep you posted!

Michael, or anyone else in the know....Will this be released through any North American dealers in the near future?

Or better yet, handing out 5 or 6 pages/letters and doing the above routine with the Hoy idea. Sheesh, why that did not come to my mind in the first place is beyond me!

Duh.

-J.

P.S. Tearing the pages out of a non-descript book from different places, folding them up and handing them to different people could play really well. Could we get permission to reprint the page and script in a book (all pages duplicate) and then openly tear them out? Lulu could do it and it would be extremely clean and fair. A very new book test!!!

Jerome - look forward to taking a closer look at your effect and am humbled by your offer! I have no problems with anyone reprinting the page or putting it into a book form so long as they have purchased the original effect. If you were to create books in the style you mentioned for commercial purposes I'm sure we could come to an agreement!

Stan - at the moment this is only released through Magicbox, it is going to be an exclusive through them for now! Having said that we will be looking to distribute it through Murphys Magic Supplies in about 4-6 weeks time!

As mentioned earlier, anyone who doesn't want to sign up an account could purchase it either by phoning up or e-mailing there order where upon we can send you a money request via paypal!

What a pain in the ___ this has been. As has already been mentioned above, you have to register before you buy through the website. When I tried to register, the registration form wouldn't take my information. I tried again the following day, this time completing the fields that are not necessary for US mailing addresses. For example, the form wants to know the name of your "town" in addition to your "city," and it also wants to know your "county." At least in the USA, one's county is irrelevant for mailing purposes, as is "town" if that is understood as something distinct from city. I just put n/a for "town," and I entered the name of my county. Doing that I was able to complete the registration process.

That wasn't the end of problems, however. The next page says that you should see a picture of a lock at the bottom of the page in order to guarantee that the connection is secure. If you don't see the lock, you are to return to the previous page and connect through a secure server. Well, I didn't see the padlock. I returned to the previous page, but I had no idea how to connect through a secure server if they didn't provide it for me.

So I'm stuck. It may sound cheap but I don't want to call the UK on the phone at $2.06 per minute to order a $28 product -- God knows how long the process will take. I guess I'll have to send an email. But the whole thing has taken a lot of time. Hope others don't have the same frustrations I have had.

James, you ´re right the registration procedere was very strange, but you can ignore all the unimportant points. In the beginning I used (--) these fillers within these fields I don´t want to answer or that were unimportant. After I made my order I changed the deliver adress without any problems (so I deleted the (--) lines and wrote nothing).

With the padlock I also noticed but I took the full risk that somebody hacked my credit card number. At least if somebody will do, I know when it happened. ;-)

Some internet dealers should realy think about a good international order support and pay systems.

I got through the registration process (even though it seemed a bit out-dated)... but did not order because the site didn't take PAYPAL.

I will try other sources.

Michael - can you not just remove the ridiculous registration process and get it back to how it was. I used to love browsing that site and have it bookmarked as one of the best. I was a customer, although not a frequent one, but I'm not going through that pallaver!

Ta.
