I like your idea! If you have Don Drivers DVD Bulding a Tip...you know what I mean about the "DOLLAR BILL BALLY",( money ..money...money) I think the Buddha papers could be incorporated into this bally. If you don't have this DVD..GET IT!! Don starts out with an empty street, in a matter of minutes he has a full tip standing in front of him....TRULY AMAZING!

Hey, Rod, thanks for the kind words, but this is really just some good brainstorming with some good guys. And we all have Don Driver to thank for putting out the real work on this and getting us started in the right direction, and in the right way. Smile

I remember seeing (and being mesmerized by) a Svengali Pitch on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City some 40 years ago, but I never could have recreated the pitch or the moves from memory by myself. With his Svengali Pitch DVD, Don has made it possible for folks to carry on a great tradition, and we are just putting some icing on his cake at this point!

BTW, I find that the worm also appeals to young girls, who normally are not enthusiastic about magic tricks -- because of the "Magic Pet" angle. They think the worm is cute and the fact that it moves by "magic" is just a neat extra.

But I think you're right -- in general it's the teenage boys who go for the Svengali Deck, the younger kids like the worms and are able to handle them. SETH

Hi SETH:

Funny how we get our start in Magic. I too was mesmorized by a magician who was booked into a grand opening of an IGA Supermarket back in the early 60's. He did the multiplying rabbits, I had never seen that trick before and was totally baffled, been hooked on magic ever since! Thanks again Seth! ROD

I know how well the Bally works. I unfortunately have never seen Don do it but I have seen Jack Nyberg do it a couple of times. It just stops them in there tracks.

Fun stuff.

HI Shane:

Yes, to watch Don Driver work this Dollar Bill Bally , is watching the master at work! We are all very fortunate that Don took the time to make his DVD's and make them available to us. Hope all is going well for you this season. ROD
