I have a question for you Kranzo. I have a bet with this guy. The finger gesture in your photo isn't that a british "rock and roll" thing? If not what does it mean?

Thanks,


Eric

It means lots of different things in different cultures but in this particular case, you are correct.

It was made popular by Ronnie james Dio. (muscian) The real name for it is the molouike (not sure if I spelt that right) or the evil eye. Like Nathen said, it means different things depending on who you talk to. If I can remember correctly, the real meaning is that it was to protect you of evil spirits, Yet at the same time you could give the evil eye as well. It was and still is used heavily in heavey metal music because of the repusentation of the devil horns. It has now since become more mainstreem and basicly means whatever you want it to.
Sorry, I had to write this being as I am a huge fan of metal music.

Rock on, Smile

As I and others have written in our releases. It is always a weak point when the performer knows the page number. Audiences are smarter now a days. Hearing a page number can bring up thought of memorized pages or cue lists.

I am not knocking this effect, it could be excellent. I just tend to shy away from any book test where you have to have spectators call out the page number. When the person does it gives a possible solution.

I received Diction today.Although I tend to agree with Devins above comments...I also believe this can be effectively presented for regular folks as instructed in the accompanying booklet.

For me,I usually try to integrate effects together if possible.[Example: I have a clock/time prediction followed by a Magic Square related to the same hour and minute #'s in the clock phase]All #'s are 'unknown' to me.
I am thinking...Diction may make a nice third phase.....with an 'unknown' page selected using the previous phases.

I really like the vinyl covered pocket Dictionary.Nice.

For those who shie away from book tests in which the performer is given a page number -- even though the page number is freely determined by the participating spectator(s) as is true with "Diction" -- the instructions include an alternative test in which the page number is NOT announced.

Hi Dick,

Thanks so much for mentioning my other test Emotional Reaction Book Test that comes as a bonus with Diction. I am very curious to see how many people try this as I have used it for years when handed any book.

All the best,

Kranzo

Hi Andi,

WOW thanks for that link!

This is another one of Ray's great handlings for the book test but this is not the test that Diction is based on. Once again thanks for that link as it was very entertaining to watch those two cats!

Later,

Kranzo
