Just fooling around with some ideas. Yup.... there is no patter and I can't find a name for this quick routine. So I call it NONAME NOPATTER for now!

Genius!
Practicing is like a bank, if you don't put anything in, you won't get anything out!

I always like Rannie's work, he mades separate moves in a continuous succesion of events, creativity and skills (I agree with Pete, I wish I could do that)
The first move, the plucking of coins from mid air and the gadabouts coin of the end (I think this is the move) are the greatest moment of the routine for me.

I have to comeback to Manila and have dinner with Rannie so I can learn at least one of the moves.
BTW: I still working on your DVD Hand size does not matter,great magic on it, very recommended.

Try to imagine spending a few days with Rannie and every time you think you've seen something truly amazing and that it just can't get any better or more magical.............. BLAMMO! He pulls out yet another from his seemingly bottomless bag of tricks!

I've actually seen him fiddle with some coins for a few mins. and then he says "Hey Mick, whatta ya think of this" and he shows what appears to be a polished and finished routine and yet I know it's still in the early stages! A talent I can only dream of!

Pure eye candy mi Hermano, muy bien as always!

Hey Rannie,


Great routine. I don't think it needs the feint in the middle, in fact it may raise more questions than it answers. Think about it and let me know how you feel.

Nice.. and great production at the end. And I like the feint – but maybe only for magicians...!

The first event appears to be that you put three coins intot your hands, and then there are two. Nothing happens to signal that any magic has taken place... you just show that there are only two coins.

I would recommend studying the work of Michael Skinner, master of "the pregnant pause." The magic is always stronger if the audience has some idea of the moment the magic happens.

The second effect is confusing:
1. Show one coin at the fingertips of each hand
2. Put left hand's coin into right hand.
3. Transfer the visible coin from the right hand to the left hand.
4. Show that you really did put the left hand coin into the right hand.
5. Hit the (now) right hand coin with the (now) left hand coin.
6. Repeat steps 2 and 3 (which puts the coins where they were in the first place...?)
7. Show that one of the coins has vanished

I've seen other videos of your work. I don't think this measures up. And not to be too harsh, but I don't think it's got much potential either.

The only part I'd recommend that you keep is the three coins gone and back in a fan, which looks only OK to the camera, but which I'm certain would play very well to eyes that are a bit less unforgiving... It wouldn't take much attention direction to make that quite magicial.

Thank you gentlemen!

Kirk bring up a great point regarding the feint. Here is what I had in mind...
While it is in fact a feint... It was not intended to be one. It is what I would call an incidental feint. My motivation was actually simply to break the rhythm and maximize the current position of the coins. This second phase was followed by a direct vanish.. almost. I was hoping that the third vanish would erase any suspicions or questions.

Having said that... I will continue to work on it and consider Kirk's input. For those who knows me well enough... This little number is sure to go through many versions.

Once again, thank you Kirk and all you kind folks! I hope this sparks some ideas that you may use in your coin magic.

Happy Holidays!

Thank you! Everything you mentioned was valid and helpful! While I do have reasons for not giving the spectators an idea of what is to happen...I cannot contest what a master like Skinner wrote in his book. I will contest though with all respect that everything has potential. It is the way we are designed. Well...if the individual closes his doors on suggestions and improvements... even a thing of beauty will not reach its fullest potential. This is just the beginning. I hardly sleep.... yup this is just the tip. Thanks again Mr Duncan!

That's what you call MARRIAGE Agaton! Ha ha ha! Hey ... Its a great thing. Its just another kind of magic! See you after the holidays! My Tavern is always open and you are welcome.

Once again I would like to thank all you guys for your kind words and great inputs! I look forward to improving this little routine. We are all in this together! With all the great suggestions, my sketch is starting to .... at least in my minds eyes, begin to look like a painting.

If you have a take on this or ideas... please feel free to post a video so we can all work on it! Who knows in the end it might even have a name!

Cheers and Mabuhay to all!
