Fantasy Phone Experiment. Was on the fence, read your review, and while it wasn't a glowing one, you identified the areas of difficulty - I treated it like a challenge to address those areas as the effect read strong enough. Agree with you that sometimes a spectator will not follow the instructions as intended, but for the times they do (or you have an accomplice who will correct them if they start to do it incorrectly), it is a miracle. Thanks.

Okay, I'll be honest. I got tagged and liked it a great deal more than I thought. Sanders did an excellent job.

Magic Farm by David Williamson, I have his other DVDs & love his style. Your review nudged me in the right direction, as I am working on a money pen routine, and this will make / makes a great phase - really change the direction.
Incidentally, I was lucky to see David lecture in London last week - over 2 hours of laughter, energy & great magic.

Also - Pinnacle. I wanted a alternative to CMH, and the reviews you give are normally pretty well grounded, so I picked it up recently. I haven't performed it yet - I want it to be 100% smooth first.

I enjoy the magic friday reviews, especially with the 'angry Bob' bit- I think most of us have one of those..!
Keep it up!

Jamie,

Can I still be entered into the drawing if I talk about stuff I didn't get based upon your reviews?!?

I am sure I am not the first magi to be on the fence about a particular purchase, finally decide to spend the funds (getting harder and harder to do these days) and come to find out that, although a good enough trick/illusion/gimmick etc, it just didn't "suit" me. Its fabulous to watch David Williamson or Justin Miller or Garrett Thomas perform their material but I like to take stuff I have learned and make it suit me and my performing style.

Magic Fridays has helped me feel better not only about my purchase but about my non-purchases too. So thanks for sharing so freely, thanks for the performance tips, and thanks for the angry bob rating (my FAVORITE part of Magic Fridays truly LOL!).

p.s. I still stand by my recommendation of Andrew Mayne's Finger Chopper, I am DYING to read the Angry Bob comments!!! And still holding out for your autographed business card!

Regards,

Barrett James

The Zig Zag illusion. I remember how you mentioned that poker game where you and Blackstone Jr. were cheating against to mobster types in Vegas back in the days as you said "the hotels were two stories because the chumps could still gamble with broken legs if they jumped after a bad beat at the poker table". They caught you with an ace up your sleeve, which was kind of apparent because after drinking a bottle of Jack before leaving your room you forgot to put on a long sleeve shirt and it was clear you were rigged. The mobsters gave you a chance, one chance, to live....and to do so you had to take out Blackstone Jr.. You realized the mobsters were two stooges not even made men and none too bright, I mean how bright do you have to be to break heads and collect money? You told Blackstone to get into a zig zag and the mobsters thought you cut him into three pieces and left saying you were 'all right'. Yeah, you an Blackstone had a good laugh after than one then hit the black jack tables where you padded your roll by an extra twelve grand. Yes, that is why I got the zig zag, because of your story. You rock brotha!


I'm getting that made into a T-Shirt.

Hi Jamie,

Your reviews assured me that buying Branded, Tagged and Fibre Optics Extended was a wise investment.

Thanks for your time and commitment.

I was trying to decide between two things what to purchase and then I saw your review for Branded and that's the one I got. Always trust Jamie!

After reading your review of prohibition I ran out and got it. I love it. It really knocks them down. I also got fiber optics because of your suggestion.

Hey Jamie,

You did a review for "ringscape" or the linking ring on shoe lace from Fantasma. I ended up getting it with the help of your review.

Thanks for the blog, Happy 100 and here is to a 100 more!

Your review for Ring on Shoe lace from Fantasma pushed me over the edge to buy one. Thanks for all your reviews. One of these days I have a feeling Angry Bob will be in a good mood.

Jamie,

I was already a fan of Mark Mason, but your review of SHOE-T and the fact that it stumped Angry Bob sold me... Thanks for everything... I really love your reviews... They are informative and SUPER FUN!!!

I was already leaning on buying Branded but after reading one more positive review, and a "Magic Friday" one at that, it made my purchase easier. Smile Thanks Jamie! I always look forward to reading your "Magic Friday" stories.

Jamie,

WARNING!! Public Service Announcement follows:

Except for the 10th name down on your list, all the other names are troll web-bot names and should immediately be deleted from the list. Doing so will immediately clean up your list and help prevent a hacker attack onto your computer. (The fact that such cleansing procedure will also then only leave one name on your list, well,..that's the price you have to pay for computer safety.)

You have been warned.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled thread.

Best,

Mike
