Hi, I've just joined these forums. I'm looking for Superior Needle through Balloon: which shops (preferably on-line, and in U.S. or Canada) sell it?

I've never performed this (only a version with a tube), so I need instructions and the needle. I found a source for the right balloons in bulk.

P.S. I'm coming back to being actively involved in performing after some 45 years. As a pre-teen and teen I studied, first, with Andy Furlong at Max Holden's in Philadelphia and then with Jack Chanin. I performed at parties, on stage before groups, and a couple of times on local TV (in a two-performer magic act where we introduced ourselves, and concluded the act, singing!).

First, the reason I posted here was that there are so many separate forums devoted to such very limited, specialized topics, I could not discern the one(s) to which to post the question.

Second, about me: I'm a 68-year-old college math professor nearing retirement who is ready to come back to doing magic rather than just following it and reading about it (especially as now I have a grandson of an age who can appreciate magic).

I fell in love with magic the first time -- perhaps I was around 8 -- I was taken to see the full evening show of Harry Blackstone (senior). I saw his shows annually in Philadelphia, PA (USA) and once had the thrill of going backstage to meet him; I still have the little piece of paper on which he gave me his characteristic autograph, complete with quickly sketched picture of himself, all done with a ball-point pen. Many, many years later when I saw the full show of Blackstone, Jr., I was amazed that the patter in some of the same tricks was identical, word for word, with what Blackstone, Sr., had used.

I attended the annual public performances of the Philadelphia IBM ring. There I saw unforgettable performances by Cardini and Ade Duval.

As a pre-teen and teen-ager I studied first with Andy Furlong at Max Holden's (Philadelphia, PA, USA) and then with Jack Chanin. Tarbell's Course of Magic became my Bible. During that period I performed regularly for school assemblies and, for modest pay, at parties, at church and synagogue family events, including some for many hundreds of people, and several times on a local TV program. The TV appearances was as half of a two-boy act that began and ended with us singing a hello and a goodbye.

By college I simply never had time to continue to perform, except occasionally, in my twenties, for large family gatherings. For a while some years ago, after moving to New England, a friend "re-introduced" me to magic, and I belonged to SAM then. (But gave up membership when traveling to the city where it met took too long and when the SAM magazine, MUM, just had too much chit-chat and not enough actual magic.)

I have an interest in all kinds of magic, although with a very few exceptions I don't particularly care to watch or perform card manipulations (whether pure slight or with gimmicked cards).

My stock of props, from Lota bowls to silks, is aged and decrepit. Clearly I need to replenish some of that now. And it seems proportionally so much more expensive today. I also hate the fact that instructions for so many effects are now in the form of DVDs instead of printed books or pamphlets. The DVDs require me to be tethered to my TV set or computer and don't do a good job of showing me the way things look from the performer's point of view, as contrasted to the hand-drawn illustrations in books with which I grew up.

Hello Murry,
What a great story about meeting Harry Sr!
You might want to try the section (Stage, Platform and Parlour) to find out about the needle.


Good luck and welcome
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.
