When I saw this post, I ignored all the negatives people said. Because I saw a gem.
I went and ordered it right away, and I just got the DVD today.
MJM is great!

Thier ad is right though.
You will wonder how you never thought of this.
It's that simple and that clever.

I will say this... even though I am sure others will not like it...
There are two types of magicians... And I don't mean hobbiest and professional.
I mean...
Ones that want to entertain others...
And ones who want to entertain themselves.

If you do magic to entertain others... get this DVD!!!
If you do magic to entertain yourself... go back to working on that card slight that no one will ever see and is too anglely to perform in real life.
It's as simple as that.

Exactly PaleoMagi... or a switch.

And, no tophatter... nothing like that. It's great for a bar.
Easy easy easy... no clothes issues.

This routine looks very fun and I think anyone working the bars or restaurants will get a lot of milage out of this...cant wait to get it! For the ppl that have this...are there any negatives about the dvd/routine?

Sorry, this is off topic but Randi I just watched the trailer for ur pk ring dvds and the effects look very good (been waiting for a pk ring vid)...plus I was wondering where the video was shot? Seems like a very exotic place you got there! lol...

The only negative about the DVD... I would say... is...
Once you know the secret, you pretty much got it.
He keeps going with some funny skits and jokes though.
But the main thing is the secret, which you will slap your head over.

What would we do if we didn't have Randi Rain to lecture us daily?

I am not a big fan of lectures either.However,I do not think Randi was trying to lecture anyone.

I believe she was differentiating something that occurs often here at the Café...there are folks who desire real commercial 'workers' that will enhance their performances and thus their careers....and those who desire 'instant gratifiers'for there own whimsy.

Then the personal whimsy seekers make comments that may negatively affect the commercial viability of an otherwise fine product...

We all can easily recognize what faction we belong to.

I happen to belong to the commercial workers group...my sole desire is to entertain folks[PERIOD!]...and if I can successfully accomplish it...that...is MY gratification.

Now,if you do not like the description or demo of a product,or think it may not be for you...*and ESPECIALLY if you do not even own it!*...well...[to be polite]..bite your tongue,or buy the product and then try to provide an intellegent assessment.

This thread was not as bad in that respect as others I have seen...however,it seemed to be heading that way.[until Randi stepped up]

I will gladly post my assessment of this product after receiving it later this week.

Best.

I got to see Scott Francis perform this recently in a show we worked together, and I've gotta say it was incredible. The gimmick is durable, inexpensive, and EXTREMELY doable. I was doing it 10 minutes after he showed my how, and I'll be adding it to my kids show immediately.

With a bit of thoughtful examination, there are ways to hand the napkin out to be examined, and there aren't any stupid hook-ups. This is pure" why didn't I think of that" magic at it's finest!!!!!

I tend to buy effects on impulse-------what a mistake! I have a MOUNTAIN of stuff I will never use. This item was an impulse purchase for me. I just now finished watching the DVD. I love the effect and the gimmick is nothing like I thought it would be. How ingenious! I don't have to buy anything. Everything is right here in my house! Why didn't I think of this! So simple and so perfect! This is DEFINITELY going into my act. I can see this used at kids shows, company picnics, birthday parties, table hopping--everywhere.

.....and the DVD.....I had more fun watching the DVD than any other magic DVD I can remember. Fun and informative. I recommend this effect to anyone & you'll kick yourself when you see the method. I will be using this.......tomorrow!
May every day be magic!

HAHAHAHA... I guess read pointless posts like that. Smile

But it's far from daily, and it's not lectures. I just speak my mind.
People don't like it because it comes from me, or I strike a nerve.
What ever.

But my post did exactly what I meant for it to do.
Which was explained already by PaleoMagi.

I am 36 years old and have been doing magic since I was 9.
Out of the 30,000 here on the Café, how many people can say that?
What? Maybe a third at the most?

And Turk agrees with me.... smart guy!! Smile


Any way... All of you who have followed suit and bought this DVD...
You will like it.
I have been playing with it for a few days now.
I am performing at our State Fair, so I haven't had much time to really work hard on it though.
But I will.

I think I will be picking this DVD up soon based upon y'all's reviews.
