Wally, have to tried to download it, with RealPlayer? Go to www.real.com and download the free Real Player. Then you can download the file on YouTube to your computer and save. Real Player on your computer can then play it ,or Real Player can convert it to Windows Media Center, then you can play it.

I will be selling two sets of LIGHTLY used 24" 8 momme (fairly heavy) Pure silk scarves, suitable for the Sympathetic Silks.

I made them myself. One set is 6 scarves each 24" in Turquoise (blue-green). the other set is in a Purple.

I used them for one week each at the Magic Castle, so they are still in EXCELLENT condition.

I don't include instructions for doing the Symp. silks routine, but it is readily available.

Either set will $50.00 and shipping is included in the USA.

PM me if interested!

For a long time I've been planning or shoot another in my series of instructional videos. The next one will be "The Ultimate Guide to the Sympathetic Silks." Hopefully it will be shot by the end of January 2015

Short, no way, there is all the one from Rice in their little booklet, then Keith Clarks fabulous routine. Don't forget Charlie Miller with his version with 4 hankies. I know I am mostly forgetting some, but I am sure you will research it like you did in your previous works in depth works.

JNeal, makes some great heavy weight silks that would go perfect with the DVD. His work is as good as Rice workmanship, 1/16 inch French hem and all.

I made some up for a gentleman in Mexico if I remember correctly, using a 10mm silk. It is important that the seams are not only small but they are properly made. They must be double turned and hemmed to hold up to all the tying and such.
Levent, so glad you are going to do the work on the Sympathic Silks. You showed me your knot handling because only Charles Reynolds knew and to put it your words "if I get hit by a plane, it will be lost. Someone else should know it" Well, you showed me and I told you that I would not remember it all. I was true to my word so it is good to have it recorded.
I will look through my files and see what I have I can forward onto you that might add to your research.

Hi Richard: My research PDF on the trick runs about 250 pages. I think I have all the major literary sources. That said, I certainly could have missed something. So if you see something, send me an email to Hypnohare@aol.com and I let you know if I already have it! Thanks in advance. When I begin shooting the video I'm thinking of live blogging it here on the Café, like I did with the previous videos. Anyone interested in seeing that?

I am delighted to hear that my friend Levent will be doing his DVD and sharing his exhaustive research with the magic community.

Because I posted earlier about having some silks for sale, I want to clarify that my silk making and other manufacturing pursuits is something I do as a sideline to my performing career. Yes, occasionally I have extras to sell of things that I made for myself....

But in no way is it intended to compete with the FULL TIME PRO makers such as Richard Hughes (and others) who specialize in creating silk items. They do GREAT work!!

Happy New Year to all!

I am sooo excited to hear Levent is doing a DVD on Sympathetic Silks! Levent is by far my favorite stage performer, and his take on this trick is amazing. Plus he is a top notch teacher.

I know your schedule delayed the production, Levent, but any news on moving forward?

Cheers!

Levent was on Penn & Teller Fooled tonight on television the CW network. He presented his Sympathetic Silks routine. It was the best presentation I have ever seen him do on stage. The others I have seen was on YouTube.

Surprisingly, he was not all hyper as in the other presentations. He was very good and did not rush through it. I really liked his act. Of course he did not win the Vegas appearance with Penn & Teller, as they did know this old classic.

On the introduction, they said he is working for David Copperfield and performing. Who knew!

Great job Levent. Perfect presentation, bar none.
