Mario, you're right I didn't think of it that way. Still doesn't matter though because he wants to see PH teach and perform without it being done to music as in the set.

After 1300+ posts have been registered I finally purchased TA. I am personally not a fan of the Easter Egg hunt concept, and I would like to expeditiously locate these gems. Since I feel too lazy to rummage through over 1300 post on this thread in an attempt to locate these pearls,can someone please provide me a roadmap to discovery... Please with sugar on top.

If you do a search on the Theory 11 website you will find most if not all of
the easter eggs are explained.Also I think if you put the discs into a laptop they
can be found easily.

Email Ezekiel Jump trickymagic@gmail.com He will send you an awesome PDF that you can print out and put in each flap. I believe the color matches too, and looks like it comes with the set.

Ezekiel Jump's PDF is great. Can not thank him enough for the work he did on those cards earlier this year.

Brilliant.

Allow me to add my thanks to Ezekiel for being so kind as to email me the pdf for the Easter Eggs on TA set. Definately a perfect example of 'magicians helping magicians' - thanks!!!

FYI - The PDF that I created for all the Easter Eggs (or Cookies, whichever term you use) is now available from http://www.paulharrispresents.com for FREE!!!!!!

Just go to to the site, click on the store, go to the second page of the store, and you can down load the nice PDF of the Cookies.

If you will print them out on nice paper, (and print at least 600dpi for best results), cut them out and put them in the little flap for each disk jacket.

Enjoy!

One last note, it will be prettier if you have a SPECIFIC font installed on your computer called "Bleeding Cowboys." You can download it from http://www.dafont.com

The ONLY reason I bring this up is that the picture up above (on this thread)of my file, is shown withOUT the correct font. This font is the pretty font that is used on the dust jackets.

Good luck and enjoy... Remember they are FREE, just get them from http://www.paulharrispresents.com in the shop area!

I was one of the earliest purchasers of the set. I soured on it very quickly. Two reasons. First, the Easter Egg crap. I hate that. If I had known in advance it would have been no purchase. As someone above said, it's ok for nonsense and bloopers but not for core material. Second, I purchased from a retailer. That meant, as I found out that I had no access to the forum on Paul Harris's web page. Again, if I had known. Having so soured on it, I also sold it very quickly. Your mileage may vary (and for many it obviously does).

Well all I can say is that you've missed out on some really stunning and creative magic! If you had only waited the Easter Eggs would have all been categorised for you (as Mr Jump has done so wonderfully!). As for the forum access - that's just sour grapes and a lack of consumer knowledge. Each and every dealer had their own 'hook' to persuade potential customers to go with them (ranging from a dinner with Paul courtesy of Ellusionist to cash and credit rebates). The forum access was the bonus for preordering from the Astonishment Project. I don't understand how not getting access to a private forum and a laziness to search for easter eggs would lead to a 'souring' towards an incredible set of DVDs??!!

I too soured on my set. Once I realized that it contained way too many incredible and powerful magic effects for me to ever master in the time I have to put into magic I got bummed. Even though most of the effects do not require much skill to master yet are very powerful there are just too many of them and too little free time. Having to pick just a few of these wonderful effects to work on, while leaving so many other just as wonderful effects behind, was just too painful for me to face.
Plus just the sight of the beautiful box would remind me of how entertaining it is just watching the well produced and filmed effects and interviews, and that would cause me to spend countless hours watching those 9 DVDs and playing with all the props instead of mowing my lawn or talking to my wife.
So I had to lock my box, throw away the instructions on how to open it, wrap it in 6 inches of aluminum foil and put it in a 20 year time vault. I suggest you all do the same before your sets destroy you.

Can't you also access all the eggs just by opening a file on the computer?

Thales, you are the king of sarcasm.

Winks: REGARDLESS what you think, you did NOT buy the easter eggs. They are bonuses. Clearly you did not purchase this set for the easter egg material because you didn't even know that the easter eggs material existed. That means you shouldn't care if they're hidden, because it's just extra stuff for you to find if you please. I cannot believe you sold your set because you received more value than the purchase price.

Fine, I simply stated My opinion as it applied to me and the time I have as well as my interests. I didn't say it applied to everyone else - I believe I said so. So, please, no personal attacks just because it wasn't for me. As far as being lazy, please, go suck an egg. I will match my day and week up against anyone for work time.

There were no personal attacks in my post... I explained why it shouldn't matter if there were easter eggs or not and I expressed MY opinion that you shouldn't have sold it. I couldn't care less if you sold your TA or not and if you liked it or not, it does not benefit me in any way for you to have your set. It's just surprising that you would sell it because there were bonuses, which isn't even why you bought the set.

Doug: priceless.

Your courtesy and willingness to accept diverse opinions is well-noted. Nobody here was referring to your 'work rate' - we were talking about your dismissal of a much-appreciated set of DVDs merely because all the easter eggs weren't clearly signposted for you and you neglected to partake in the fun and challenge of 'hunting' for them.

By the way - Thales and Doug - I appreciate the humour in your posts!

I think they should have included a bonus disk with all of the eggs on for those not wanting to look for them. Some people do work a lot, so laziness is not the reason but more so time issues.
