Joe Porper and I have created a prototype mechanical prop that makes the olde Wand thru bottom of cup gag a wild and crazy effect and it looks, really looks, like the wand does go through the cup. A little more work on it and it will be ready for market... Maybe Joe will show them at the IBM/SAM combined convention.

I did this for Dean Dill and he wants the first one!

That's histerical Pete. At a magic club meeting many years ago, a member did the cups and balls and did the standard deeper on the inside than the outside gag. Another member, thought the wand was gaffed to accomplish this. He was so disappointed when he found out the method.

A full page ad in Genii and Street Magic have been prepped. Dean Dill has one of the first ones and is working out various handling ideas and will be printing the instruction sheets next week.

Porper has gone into production on the wands, using "exotic" Tiger Woods (not the golfer, but tiger striped wood) Available in various colors and degrees of polish or dull for the street guys. I send the images to Porper's web designer and hopefully they will be posted soon.

That's great! Tell Joe I want one. I wonder if he will make them so they fold with that neat new hinge of his!

Yes, hinge or whatever. I just picked up a custom one to deliver to a friend and it is polished Tiger Wood (dark, nearly black) it has the traditional screw in the middle but he can use his patented folding hinge.


Oh what fun... today both Shoot Ogawa and David Williamson came by and played with the Prototype Wand Thru Cup... to see these two apply their own style (no two more guys less alike--yet extremely skillful) to the wand through cup was a great treat. Not only were they very magical with the prop but their way of getting into and out of it were a great lesson.

It was great fun. Williamson did his Non Goofy Comedy cups routine, and has some really clever moves and a very disarming way to load five limes in a two cup routine.

I found his "cards across" routine very funny!

What's Williamson up to these days?

I worked on a home made version of the wand through cup move similar to the 'pen through anything' effect last year thinking I might have something new. Needless to say not much ever came out of it.

I'll be interested in seeing your effect Pete.

Wiliamson is doing a two-man act at the Castle with an 'actor'... I have not seen it but it is like a comedy sketch I have been told.

It was great fun to see two guys like Williamson and Ogawa take something you create, and have fun with it and really dig it.
