The main effect sounds stunning. Anyone heard of this effect? I searched the Café but to no avail. (AFAIK)

MF2,

That's a dead link, Juan.

While it sounds great (after reading the thread), I'm now frightfully afraid about how it says it utilizes an "old principle". I've been fooled by many of these descriptions where it comes out to be something unimpressive (swami, one ahead, etc.), that's just repackaged in a fancy wrapper. Have to say that I'll pass.

Dompa,
Thank you very much for the correction!

That's what I get for rushing thru the cut and paste....

From this, it seems to me, that the "old principle"s are unimpressive to you. Which people do you want to entertain? Yourself, other magicians, or laymens?
Cause, if its yourself - then bad news : almost everything can be backtracked towards four basic principles.
Other magicians : Just combine two "old principle" and see how they struggle to bactrack the method.
Laymen? Use the oldest method of all, and package it in some fancy manner.
Sorry, just thinking out loud. Smile

Harbingers contains solid ideas from a great thinker.

Honestly his first routine "Word of Mouth" is an excellent way to apparently influence the thoughts of others. I really like this. I feel like I need to make comment, becuase I am the one that said "classic method". Actually, his modus operandi, I much prefer over other similar sorts of routines. There is honestly more freedom and less need to be anxious, which I like. It really is excellent. I mentioned to Mark one small detail to make it even easier on the performer (read: less stress), I am not sure if that made it into a final draft, but I would be happy to offer my idea to anyone who purchases (my idea isn't really a big deal, but it helped me to see myself doing this). Done properly this routine should have an asotunding impact on "entertainees". I just wanted to mention this.

Aldo, I hope it's Okay to say that this routine has a "Derren-esque" feel about it. It is great and plausible frame to perform a predicted word effect.

I dig it.

I guess that's as good a recommendation as one can get. I am also a huge fan of Derren-style presentations, so I guess I'll have to take a look.

The kind of comment typical of a teenager supremely confident yet blissfully unaware of the depth of his own ignorance. Maturity comes with the realization that the more you think you know, the more you find you have yet to learn.

Well excuse me for breathing.. If I'm not mistaken I've said just that to you many a time.

I keep on getting these forums mixed up with a combination of a juvenile detention center and a counseling service..

Sean - Yes, your suggestion did make it into the final draft. I know that I've already thanked you privately, but thanks again for your feedback, advice and support.
