Hey FM,

Don't take it personally. I know of one guy who was glad you dropped by and took some of the heat off him for a while.....

... Now where has Dave got to? Ken, you haven't put him in that Wendy house again have you? You know how long it took him to get out last time!

It's all innocent joking FM, sorry if it was taken personally wasn't meant to be that way. Sometimes the lines between truth and reality do get blurred and it can be difficult to tell which is which. I wish the best in all your endeavors and hope you weren't turned off by this section of the forum. We do tend to joke around quite a bit and that sometimes doesn't translate well online.

With all the talk of razor blade trick, I am surprised Otto Wessely's incredible routine hasn't pooped up. Otto is a wild comedy magician, but his routine is spectacular. Unfortunately,It is in French so I can't understand everything said, but you don't need it to get the razor part of his routine.

It wasn't the brightest thing I've ever done in my life. Sadly though, it was far from the dumbest.

That was cool. Love the shear amount of blades that go in and come out.

So many times you see 5 or so blades, but I lost count!!

If you don't want to sit through the whole thing the blades start at about 3 minutes(ish).

Thanks for the link Smile

I am a fan of Spill's needle effect. It begins and end clean -- very compact. I changed the enclosed needle carrier to a "Needle Nest" I found in a sewing store, but none of the handling.

If like me you weren't sure of what a needle nest is it's one of these -- http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/needle-nests

Doesn't really fit my style, but definitely a nice idea.

On a separate note I found this -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBE-Si0TM......be_gdata -- Its Teller's take on the needles. I like the eating the apple bit after he's swallowed the needles. Great way to prove his mouth is empty. I also like the fact he uses a longer thread and loads of needles.

The regurgitation of one needle was also a nice tough I thought.

Anyway, my research continues Smile

Well, that's ok, everyone's opinion in here is valid.

Tried it on my aunty, worked the same. I still remember the spell until now and will try it on my westerner friends later.



Did he manage to smash her with two hands but it took a minute? I can not believe you got some guys to try adn crush your aunti with their bare hands! Man my Aunti would kill me if I tried that with her .... she a big woman! She may well end up ramming a sword down my throat and me bleeding to death!

Actually Danny is full of it! We don't "tend to joke around quite a bit" ..... we do it a lot and very occasionally we say something serious! Smile

He is correctt hat it does tend to get lost in translation to the web. It is a risk of the digital age ..... hence why the smilies can be oh so useful ..... Smile Smile Smile Smile


All the best

Bob Kohler just put out Scott Alexander's routine called "The Blades" and there has been quite a discussion about it on another thread here in the Café. Sells for $795! Man, you could buy a lot of razor blades AND needles AND thread for $795!

The link is: https://www.bobkohlermagic.com/view-product.cfm?productid=65

Seriously. Wow.

I don't think I'd pay for any routine, and in this case, I already know all possible blade methods...I get what they are trying to do...but if you can't build your own act around your chosen method (they all work well, this one won't be 'special'), why even do it?

If it was really to do with protecting secrets then it wouldn't be being sold at all.

I did razor blades in my show for a long time an used a combination of methods for load and ditch from a few different sources. It was mentioned though in a discussion I remember, that razor blades threaded together really made little sense; but needles on thread were a logical progression.

To be fair, producing doves and candles or hammering a spike in your face and all of the other weirdness performers do doesn't make sense either to a lot of people. We do have some leeway to be eccentric.

If you tell your story well, it will make sense to any audience.

If you don't have a story, you're just showing off.
