Daver, that is not to say I don't look for new methods, it's just that I've been in the business 27 years and am familiar with a lot of material. I wouldn't want to be a clone of anyone either. The routines I learn are then modified to fit my style, or I even change the entire storyline of the effect. Ex: Perfection by Oz. I took the idea and used NYC "tourist" card deck that has photos of all the NYC locations. After they shuffle, we deal down the cards and we take a "virtual" tour of the city at the same time (the photo's on their cards match mine). The suprise ending: one of their cards turns into a NYC subway metrocard.

Salaz....

Great idea! Can I steal it?

Just kidding, but it is a good idea.

Teevee stated my sentiments exactly (and more succinctly ;-)

What's the difference between a magician and a deck of cards? A deck of cards has FOUR suits...

The online demo shows Oz looking into their eyes and announcing their thoughts. If that's not how he does it, then I'm not getting this.

Teevee, Daver, thank you for the compliment of theft! I feel flattered. Feel free to use the routine to inspire your own and let me know what you come up with. I would love to hear what you do. I have seen Oz perform these effects for over a year now and never did them myself out of principle not to "Steal" his routines. Now that he has Published them, I decided to give the stapled envelope effect a try last night at my restaurant gig. It Freaked people out. One guy (who tipped me $150) began to cry. I didn't know what to do (don't worry, I took the money. I ofcourse changed the routine so it wasn't a vacation, but connected to meeting up with two childhood friends, hence the man began to tear from the memories.

Chris, I agree that you shouldn't get the DVD if it's not what you want. I hope no one gets it. I urged Oz all year NOT to publish these effects. I saw the kind of reactions he was getting and I didn't want every magician copying it and making it "ordinary". And I didn't want curiosity seekers to buy the DVD's see the explanations.

Paisa:

This is a review section and a review threat right? I don't really see any complaining or griping going on, just honest discussion and reviews.

Hey,
ksalaz1 is telling the truth as he constantly told me not to release this material. He may have been right, might have been a mistake; but at the end of the day if fellow performers are getting huge reactions with this material that makes me happy. However, I hope it is not in my target markets. :-P

Because of this forum, I am now working on some of the classic material in books before I acually get this. In fact, this christmass break is devoted to reading the classics. I want to be ready before I plunge into the abyss. I am more of a coin worker than a mentalist, so I understand the importance of knowing your foundation in the art. Thank you all for your advice, thank you Oz for being an open business man (I'm at UofM, go blue!), and I can't wait to pick up this DVD when I am finally ready for the Abyss! -DP

Go Blue! You can't go wrong with a copy of 13 Steps.

Hi All,
Help me out a bit...
I have been doing the Osterlind Perfected Center Tear for a couple years and I consider it one of my strongest effects. Once, when I revealed a name to a girl, she backed into the corner of the room and kept saying, "That's so creepy, that's so creepy!" I was worried that the people in the adjoining room were thinking that I was flashing her! :-P
So, given the obvious strength of doing the Osterlind routine, what does "Into the Abyss" offer? Is it a variation of the same effect (different presentation)? How would it differ from doing the Osterlind PCT as taught on Osterlind's Mind Mysteries?
Thanks!
Bob L.

Well if I'm not mistaking the presentation on Osterlinds DVD was a basic revelation right. The Peek was the great part. It might depend on your actualy effect. How are you performing PCT that has people backing up to all wall? I think ITB(INTO THE ABYSS). Is a group of effects that ustilize the PCT or any Peek to get the information. I could be wrong though since I have not recieved it yet.

Bob:

If you are getting killer reactions from whatever PCT routine you are doing you frankly probably do not need Into the Abyss. This DVD has three routines that reply on the PTC. They have some good ideas for sure and so for example if you knew the PTC but were not using it for lack of an appropriate routine then this would be for you. However as I said if you have your own effective routine there is no need for this. There is no discussion of the actual PTC at all other then to say you should learn it.

If you are currently doing some very simple revelation you may find that you can extend your routine a little bit by using some of the ideas here.

Just on a side note, I think sean fields "north of the border" is my preferred center tear, as it works with business cards.

It offers three strong reveals. Read my review (first message in this thread) for details.
