Have all of those and love the watch routine. But to be honest if its the CT then I'm a little iffy with it, could I use Acidus Novus or the Outlaw wallet or anything like that?


You can use whatever CT or p**k you want, as long as it gets you the information on the spot a la Osterlind's PCT.

I have seen Oz perform these routines at different Fortune 500 Company events around the country (I was performing in the same room). These routines kick butt. I was sad to hear that he was publishing these routines because they are so strong, I didn't want too many people to get a hold of them. As far as the CT goes, there are a ton of ways to get the info from somebody. When I do strolling mentalism, I mix it up between 4 different methods that way no one catches on.

Hello,
I want to be as up front as possible with what is and is not taught on this DVD. The 3 powerful routines on this DVD require virtually no sleight of hand. There is no new or ground-breaking method to obtain secret information; no new impression pads, muscle reading, peeks, etc. I teach a basic CT on the DVD, and also highly recommend learning Osterlind's PCT. I would love to have included it, but this is one of Richard's signature items and I respect that. You do not need to know the PCT, however it is my personal preferred method and worth every penny (and then some!). If you have any method that you prefer, be it a peek wallet, impression pad, billet peek, etc. by all means use it. I hope this clarifies some of the questions people have had.

Regards,
Oz

Thanks Oz for the answer. If you teach the basic Pt, then you did your job.

He was born in Israel and moved to the states when he was 12-13 I think. A few friends of mine have attended his lectures in Israel. Oz is actually a fairly popular name in Israel

Unfortunately, the advertising for this product was quite misleading. What you get on the DVD are three routines, well explained. However, the real work for the handling used in the performances is not explained. Rather we are referred to purchase another person's DVD for that. A much weaker alternate handling is described briefly, but is not used in any of the performances, and the effect would be much less powerful if it was. Quite simply, this is over-hyped and under-delivering 99% crap.


I have to pipe in here. I think it is great that OZ wouldnt give everything away. I hate when DVD's do give you everything. It makes you a clone!!!

On another point. If you don't know how to obtain information in real time then why are you even buying this DVD in the first place, or any mentalism DVD for that matter? Learn the basics and then go from there. That is my 2 cents.

I agree with you as well. Although I would like the tape recorder and the nifty little wallet. Smile Smile Smile

Hello,
Somebody asked a good question about what you would need to buy to perform the routines on Into The Abyss. For Ultimate Vacation, you need nothing more than common office supply items, which if you don't already have (and most people probably do, stapler, index cards), will cost you under $10 for over 100 performances. For Listen to my Words, you'll need to invest about $20 into a microcassette recorder, available at Staples, Office Depot, etc. And for What's in a Name? you can do it with or without a Hip Pocket Mullica wallet. I explain a method that uses nothing more than a small notepad, a pen, business cards, and a paperclip. I know that before I buy a magic DVD, I like to know what I'm getting; and aside from flat out revealing the effects I'm happy to field any questions.

Regards,
Oz

Oz man you are doing great with coming on and not letting people get blind sided about your product. If there is anything I hate is when you are not forewarned about things like that. For example effects that require major alterations to clothing and or shoes. I don't even know what a flux capasiter or space modulater are. Smile

That is truly respectable. I know that penguin has gotten some slack in the past but your one of the reasons that keeps them going. I love truth and confidence in a product. I will try to place my order in today.

Hey side note, if no Mullica, can a Real Mans Wallet(NO JOKE, THE PRODUCT) work? And if not a tape recorder, how about an audio message on your Cell phone? Maybe even turned into a ringtone?

I totally agree. I was the one who PMed him about what else I would need to perform his routines. I hate having to run to Office Depot - the mentalist's magic shop - at the last minute. He promptly answered me and now has shared the answer with the Café. That's class.

Ok so if a CT is all that is needed and I don't feel the most confident with my PCT, how about think pink? I have been looking for a reason to get this, but because of my lack of confidence with the PCT I never really understood what Think Pink would bring to the table.

I received the DVD and I like it very much. No I like it more than very much. I enjoyed the performance segments, live, with different real audiences. It was enlightening to see the mixed reactions. This is material you will use. I know I will. I found myself going back to watch the performance segments several times to learn the timing and bits of business. Excellent !!

It's true that the PCT is not explained, but Oz references Osterlind's Mind Mysteries DVD where it is explained in detail.-- NOTE ---
---- when I viewed the Mind Mysteries DVD, Osterlind stated that the PCT is one of two of his pet creations which he is very proud of. I respect Oz for respecting
Richard Osterlind's creation by NOT including it. Getting the Mind Mystery DVD is well worth it, if you don't have it, get it. Some nice gems found there.

I'm very pleased with this DVD. I'm off to buy some index cards and staples, oh and a mini recorder too.

Thank you, Mind Guerrilla! (How can I not remember this volume with the Bank Night in it!) Smile

Is it PC to mention PCT in a thread about PC's?
