I recently purchased this DVD and although it shows the performance Only for TERMINAL VORACITY ($5 to $1 effect), it gives you a website to go to for the explanation.

That mentioned Website has been down for at least this past week that I tried with no way to contact Corey. Does anyone (who has this DVD) know how to get the explanation??

You can PM me to not let loose the website name to the public.

It's been way over a year and the promised weblink video is still NOT available. I PM'd him many times in the past with really no resolution... Just procrastination.

Anybody has any other word of this??

Just to answer your question. I've been out of the magic community for a long time. Just doing actual gigs and working on other projects.

Salby, I saw that you put the DVD up for sale a while ago so it shouldn't really be a big deal to you, about this effect, seeing as you don't own the DVD any more. Right?

I decided NOT to put this out. It was more of a headache than anything (trying to help those that wanted just the FREE effect.)

The marketing for this DVD said the effect was "performance only" anyway so I know you weren't buying the DVD for this one effect alone.

Sorry for any inconvenience,

CB

I put it up for sale, but never sold it (ie.: I still own it). However, if I do sell it, it would be nice to know for the future buyer that the video that suppose to be included with the DVD (via an included slip of paper directing me to a non--existant website) is indeed true to its word.

And actually, I wanted to learn TERMINAL VORACITY. The clerk at the Mortar and Brick Magic shop explained to me that there is a link inside the DVD to explain this. I am a big Paper Money Magic Performer and decided to get this DVD "knowing" the instructions for it would be included (1 way or another) in my purchase.

I am upset as I was misled from both the Magic Shop clerk and by the slip of paper in the DVD case alledging me to believe that I can learn what I feel is a great effect of yours. This is one of the best $5 to $1 Transpositions I have seen!!!

If you were preventing the "trying to help those that wanted just the FREE effect", then the explanation should have been burned into the DVD itself.

Any reason you decided to just tease the issue of Performance Only? (Don't get me wrong, other DVD's have had "Performances Only" effects included as well.) I just wanted your take on it, let alone, not explaining the misleading slip of paper??

I agree with Salby. I also bought this DVD and emailed Corey about the website. He stated that it was still in the works. The DVD stated the explanation would be available therefore the video should be available.

Corey,
I really don't know why you care about people that didn't buy your DVD catching wind of the site and watching the explanation. I think you should be worrying more about your customers. They are the people that put the money in your pocket.

Just my two cents.

Cory, if you included a slip of paper in the DVD saying that an explanation would be made available to the performance only effect, then the right thing to do is to honor that.

Unless of course the intention is to burn customers and create ill will. Then stay the course, because it's working.

Agreed...At least email the explanation video to the customers who are upset about the website not being up.

That's not even me singing in that YouTube vid (fyi).

I didn't put a slip of paper in the DVD. Not sure where you got that from.

Ok, how about this. Did you ever indicate that a link would be made available to teach the effect?

Sorry... My mistake.

There was NO piece of paper (I got confused with another DVD (FLOW) that had a piece of paper directing the buyer to another handling of the effect).

However, on VORACITY, it was actually stated on the DVD (a menu) when viewed on your TV that directed the buyer to go to the link in question for the explanation of the effect.

Sorry for the confusion.

Either way, there was a direction to a website from Cory's DVD to gain the explanation TERMINAL VORACITY. I went to the site... It does NOT exist.

Okay Corey. You didn't put a slip of paper in the DVD but you did provide a link on the actual DVD. Is that statement correct?

Do you not understand the problem? Do you honestly think this is good business ethics? Do you plan on releasing more magic in the future? If so, do you care about your past customers at all?

It really is sad that people can put out products, make promises, not deliver on those promises and still make a profit. I am also an owner of this DVD and have multiple emails from Corey stating that the link would be up and running soon (that was on 2/22/08).

I also have this DVD and was upset that I cannot find the explanation. I figured out the explanation by running it in verrrrrrrrrry slow motion.

You shouldn't have to run it slow. It should be posted on the website as stated by Corey on the DVD and via e-mail. I purchased this directly from him and I just feel burned by his lack of understanding in this matter.

I have three of Corey's DVD's: Payphone, One-Eyed Jacks and Voracity. I guess you could say that I was a fan.

I too was rather upset when the explanation for Terminal Voracity (despite what it said on the DVD) was witheld.

The worst thing about this entire affair, is that Corey doesn't see that he has done anything wrong and fails to understand why those who support his work are agreived by this.

Sorry Corey, this is just not the way to treat loyal customers and if you truly think it is, see how many people buy your next DVD - I won't be buying it and I suspect that many others will feel the same.

AP.

Agreed...I also own those three DVD's and like Adam, I will not be purchasing Mr. Burke's future offers and advising others to do the same. He should stand by his customers and provide what he sold us.

I really can't believe he hasn't responded to this thread.
