Has anyone heard from Jason? I ordered some red back refills for Twilight Angels a couple months ago and already paid for part of it. He said he's have more in about two weeks and that was 2 months ago. I've emailed him a couple times at three different email addresses but have gotten no response.

Also, does anyone have a link to the TA forums? My harddrive crashed last week and I lost the link. I tried doing a google search but couldn't find it.


Here's the link:

Conjunction is on Disk 2 as an easter egg.

I ordered my RED Twilight Angle refills back when I first got my TA set, and I was one that pe-ordered TA. Andyway, I sent my second email to Jason asking for the status on my RED Twilight Angle refills, and this was his answer:

"Hi Joe, Been in bed with 103 fever and flu for the last week, just turned the corner and started feeling partway human yesterday and am now back to answering emails. Sorry for the delay. There seems to be a manufacturing issue with the red backed Twilight Angel refills, so I have no idea when that will be resolved. I'll be closing my doors shortly on The Astonishment Project, so I'm going to refund you. Sorry for the hassle and delay.
Best,Jason"

I'm sorry to hear that.
And I hope he feels better.

Closing the doors? What does that mean? I hate to speculate, but does that mean no more customer support on this project?

I am also dissapointed, here is yet another effect that is sold and can't be performed regularly by anyone who works all the time.
Magic sellers should not sell effects if they can't be performed professionally, and if refills are not available.

I can't wait to hear the comments...

I found several online dealers that advertise them, now I am trying to sort out which actually have them in stock and in RED.

I will post my results, but it may take time as some say I have to order and put what I want in the comment box and wait to see if I get what I want.

I'm on a quest...

The TA folks are working on getting the red completed. No shops have red, to my knowledge.

If you read my note above from Jason at TA, he said he will be closing his doors shortly on the project, and he already refunded my $ for the 10 packs of RED refills I ordered.
So I don't see how TA is going to have Red, unless you know something I don't know.
I said I could wait for red, but he implied they will not ever have them, and sent me a refund.

I talked to several dealers today, and they only have BLUE available.

I did make an order from Penguin. They said they could not tell me if they have red, but that if I made the order I could put I want red in the comment box, and they would give me a refund if they don't have Red. So now I wait and see.

Apparently everyone wants RED gaffs so why on earth would they make so many blues and no reds?!

I didn't mean The Astonishment Project, but the folks behind True Astonishments. They know folks would like to have red gaffs and are working on it. No time frame on it as far as I know.

Thanks for clearing that up! I guess I'll put Twilight Angels to the side for now and concentrate on other things untill I can get the necessary props I need to do this.
Thanks

Just a quick question.

Are they going to be able to make the gaffs with the USPCC's new policy or isn't that in effect yet?

I thought The Astonishment Project was the force behind the True Astonishment.
From everything put out that is what they led us to believe, or have I been misreading it all?
And The Astonishment Project is closing it's doors? What does that mean?

My source is just one of my brick and mortar shops here. They carry the baker's dozen refill packs for Naked Angels on Bikes (same gaff). I'm pretty sure the refills are probably deadstock (since pretty much nobody does that trick before TA came out).

Paul Harris has an update for folks wondering what happens after the Astonishment Project website closes:

From Paul:

"The Astonishment Project is closing because Jason is moving onto other things. To fill the gap, in a few weeks or so, I'll be opening a new site "Paul Harris Presents". This will basically serve the same function as the Astonishment Project. It will carry my new stuff when it first comes out and will be a place for product support etc. My little sis Janet will be running the nuts and bolts of it. Alex Slemmer will be the chief astonishment guru, along with any help I can get from other folk"

Anyone know when Paul is going to do the web chat online to answer questions? Or, chat on the forums.

I agree, Twilight Angel refills in red would be great. I don`t think there is even a need to produce blue ones. Nobody seems to want them.
