To introduce myself Magic is my hobby and I love close up sleight of hand material. When I get the time to practice (between raising kids and a busy career) there is nothing more fun than getting a new effect under my belt or improving one I've done in the past.

Right now I'm working on "The Pass" from my new Pass video. I'm also interested in finger ring on rope stuff. I do an effect I learned out of Genii Magazine years ago and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good Video with good ring and rope material on it to add to the one I already do. I love learning stuff from Videos! Anyway, great to be here! Oh and by the way I heard about your site from Joe at Misdirections Magic shop.

Hello Joe!

Great to have you here, and you certainly have come to the right place to ask those kinds of questions. Smile

I couldn't tell you about a particular video, I haven't even viewed most of the ones I own yet. I am still working on really getting the first few "down cold" but I certainly agree, that videos (with the exception of personal instructions) are the best way to learn new stuff.

Welcome, I hope you enjoy this place as much as I do!

And hey, don't hesitate to tell us more about the kids and the career...

If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.

Hey Joe!

Welcome to the Cafe! I share your interests in close up sleight of hand! It's a killer field! I bent a fork for my mom today...You shoulda seen her eyes! Ain't it great bein' up close to smell the brain fryin'? Smile

And hey, as Bro David says, don't hesitate to talk about your "normal" life! Lol! 'Specially if one of those kids is a beautiful girl who falls for 16 year old guys with self insulting names! Smile

Welcome again!

Bro David,

Yes I agree personal instruction is tops. I took magic lessons as a kid in Whittier years ago.

My kids are 10 and 6. my son is in 5th grade and my daughter in kindergarten. She actually has the greater interest in magic at the moment, as well as demonstrating great dexterity in the world of "Cat's cradle" string tricks.

Welcome abaord, Joe.
I'd like to help you but I'm not a "video person" (still stuck in the printed-page era!)
Looking forward to your posts.

Hi, Joe:

Nice to have you join us at the Cafe. You might want to check out Aldo Colombini's videos. I understand he has one that deals with a ring on rope routine. Enjoy your time here. This is a great place.

Howdy, there is a thread in the
"rings, strings & things" section on ring & rope routines that was started by me (great minds think alike)

I hope you enjoy your time here Smile
