Herr Muggle,

You are correct sir. I pulled the video from youtube.

To those who've purchased the routine I will make several videos available so they can see what the silly thing looks like. The second edition of the routine will include a professionally shot performance video, on DVD. Unless someone with far better video skills than myself antes up, there will never be an instructional DVD. I simply don't know how to do it. I could do a half-donkeyed job, I won't.



Having a minor sense of loss, about the routine, of late. I didn't want some smart guy reverse-engineering it and releasing it as their own. (Josh the Superfluous, my pal, did figure the entire thing out it in amazingly short time.)

Josh would never do me wrong. Not all smart people make choices the same way.

I apologize to any and all for any anger you may have sensed from me. This little routine has made me many great new friends in magic. Any disagreements I have are with an inordinately small population of people in magic. I hope to resolve even those few cases someday!

I'm available to anyone with a keyboard, via pm on Uncle Steve's board here. I have no enemies, only friends and friends I haven't met yet.

I am very fond of Jake Zimmerman and consider him a friend, to this day.

I would like to thank Pete Biro and Bill Wells for the opportunity to talk about my little trick at the World Magic Seminar. I'm flattered and working very hard on my presentation. I hope to see many of you fine folk there. I do lecture, for a living. I hope to not be too pedantic and to inject some humor. As a matter of fact, if you do show up . . .

I'd wear a seatbelt!

Happy New Year Kent.
Will see you in Vegas.
Your routine is still the one I prefer. I did watch once more the videos that I had saved from Youtube. The evolution between the two is spectacular. Thus, as far as showmanship is concerned, give it a few years of performance.
I think that we should circulate a signatue list requesting you and your routine to be invited at the next FISM. It's new enough. I'll be amongst the first to sign it.
Don't worry about copies, Paul Gertner would confirm that when a routine is way off the beaten path and requires real work, people rarely copy it durably and every magician who counts knows it has your signature printed on it. Ask your friend Josh: he has interesting new C&Bs moves that, not unlike your routine to you, are exclusive with him.

Wow, it's good to hear that Lawrence will be there. One of Laurence's other interests is the Cylinder and Coins, so I hope he'll stick around for my half of the presentation.

`course, you cup guys are invited, too.

Add to this the fact that Vegas room rates have been slashed and WMS rates are now: $67 for March 1 (down from $124), $38 for the 2nd (down from $67), $32 for the 3rd, and $38 for Mar 4. That's an average of $43.75 a night plus taxes and fees down from an average of $81.25.

These folks and these rates are not likely to be repeated in the future.

I've received and read through Mr. Gunn's routine several times, now. It's brilliant. The best part is, it uses such different methods than the traditional cups and balls approach, that it will amaze laymen as well as those well-versed in the inner workings of Vernon's C&B routine. This is a significant addition to the literature, and a pretty darn slick trick to boot. Thanks, Kent, for sharing.

Dude, PM me. Price never really went up. I got tired of paying Lulu such a huge cut to send out an email, when I do it for way cheaper.

Etienne, I'll sign that petition if it gets me a free trip to FISM!!!

Wow! Pete, Kent, Lawrence, Rannie, and the whole cups and balls session, plus Kent and Curtis's session! I chose a different time for the Invisible Lodge meeting at WMS just to not miss Kent and Curtis's session! This is going to be one heck of a WMS!

Pete,
I'd go to Beijing in heartbeat. Etienne is a great guy but I know the routine ain't FISM level! That's for guys like Latimer.

With due respect, I think that I know a few things about the C&Bs as well. The routine is FISM level.

Pete, since you were a member of the FISM jury, what say you?

I think it's perfect for FISM. It's an innovative, magician fooler. And Kent has found his voice for the patter. What's not to win?
