For those who were asking about the DVD of my cups & ball routine 'Runaround Sue', a review of it just came out on Inside Magic. You can read it here http://insidemagic.com/article_889.shtml

Hi Tim,
Didn't know you came to these parts.
I enjoyed you routine when you did a lecture in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
I've got your notes but I didn't know there is a dvd.
The routine rocks!

Good to see you Daniel. I've been hanging around the ol' Café for a while now, popping in when I get a chance.

If you enjoyed the notes, I really think you'll find the DVD extremely useful. (It even has a version of the infamous D'Cups & D'Balls on it).

I really wanted to explain everything in as much detail... if not more... than you'd get at one of our workshops. You also get to see the evolution of the routine over nine years.

While I am explaining how it "really" works I do it in VERY slow motion. I will pick up the cup (could take 30 seconds to do) and place the ball under it (another 30 seconds of great facial expressions) and then replace the cup. Then when I show them in "real" speed I do it ultra-fast by not even touching the cup at all! Then when challenged I reveal the ball under the cup. If you are good at acting it up while doing the slow motion you can really milk it for what its worth. You could stop, comb your hair, get a drink of water, etc. all while pretending to be in slow motion. Talk slowly too adds to the effect.
