Okay... that's just strange.

Anyhow, turtles aside ( still don't get it) I ordered The Royal Touch and a Charlie Frye volume today from the ever-so-helpful Kozmo.

Thanks guys

I also agree about the art of street performing DVDs particularly the first one. It is a great illustration to the first thirty pages of the royal touch. that is the other thing about the royal touch. The first thirty or so pages are the most required reading, and read them over and over again. You will find new stuff there each and every time you read it. Also, after you work the street a bit read it again and even more stuff will pop out at you.

Best,

With thanks to Mr Magicsanta I can now confirm the rumours are true... I do love turtles!

That got quite confusing there for a while.

Cellini's magic anyone can do, or magic that can be done anywhere... I don't have my copy handy for the name ref, but it has some things on it you don't see every other street performer using. I have even used a couple of them on stage and in close up. That is how great the material is. It plays as big as you make it play, and appeals to any audience.

I use a couple of routines off of it, and always get great responses...

I liked it so well, that when my original dvd got stepped on, I got another one from Kozmo.

Yeah, what the Doctor said. That DVD rocks.

Loop ball, TT moves, jumbo coin manips, salt pour, billiard balls, that's a GREAT DVD.

If I lost my whole DVD collection and had to start over from scratch, that'd be the first one I'd buy. I'm always going back to it for more stuff.

The loop ball has serious possibilities that are NOT on the DVD.

I just got a fresh batch of loop balls done btw, if anyone is interested in getting one without waiting. They are really killer.

I bought a loop ball from Frank and play with it all the time. It's a great tool for fooling around in front of the mirror and practicing moves.

It's fun to use and really easy to become good with.

I think it's superior to a billard ball [ for busking, because ya can't break the thing.

A loop ball doesn't help perform the same routines as multiplying billard balls can, but it provides you with an easy to learn and VERY visual ball routine. So it's more like trading LIKE for LIKE.

With Cellini's DVD in my heart and Frank's balls in my hands, I feel like the king of the world I tell ya.

Loop balls? That's interesting and I just saw a clip of Cellini performing. Are there other moves to mix it up? It doesn't seem very diabolical as standalone repetition.

Very touching Chad.

If you treat a loop ball like a billiard ball you can expand the routine tremendously.

think about coming up with a loop ball routine that does NOT look like a loop ball routine.

My advice for a billard ball routine is if you're using a ] it should not look like you're using a ]. that will help you make a creative routine.

think outside the ].

I found Cellini not as interesting, though~ Just a thought.

The DVD now is "TALES FROM THE STREETS" from Kozmo. There's a lot of info there. Very clear, no restriction. Great job, Kozmo. (Where does the name KOZMO come from?)

I think Kozmo is a derivative of the word kozmonaut, which is Russian for "freakin' nut job".

Who else do ya think they get to go into space? Hellooooo, huge vacuum void of air you NEED to breath with your body?!?!?

Nut jobs, all of them. Kozmo is their king.

There's only one man that can settle this debate for us.

Captain Kozmo: The space busking czarist intergalactic communist hat passer himself.

The Cellini Street Lecture DVD from Zurick is just chock full o' goodness. I got it from Frank's website. Most bang for the buck in Cellini's DVD format.
I haven't got Kozmo's Tales from the Street yet, but hope to soon (just waiting for my wife to ask what I want for Christmas).

As others mentioned, the Cellini book, The Royal Road, is great. I got mine from Kozmo's website.
Life is too important to take seriously.

You're right. That is good. So is Cellini's Slydini lecture and, of course, Kozmo's "As I recall...", but that's more Slydini than Cellini.

It would be good if Chris Capehart had a busking DVD together.
