Hi everyone,
I've seen a great rope routine 3 or 4 years ago at Edinburgh Festival and it impressed me so much.
It was performed by Jay Alexander from San Francisco.
I love it so much and really want to perform it.
Can anybody help me?

I try to recall:
It's kind of multi-phase rope through body rontine but it took about 5 minutes.
It goes not only through body but also through ear.
You can perform it with music.

Anyone knows the name of the props or routine?
Thank you very much.

Don't know what Jay did but worth it to check out Bob Sheets Hang Em High - a rope thru body DVD you will enjoy and learn from.

It's my Rope-u-tation, I sold one to Jay back in '92. Look at this video, right?

Hang 'em High is why I don't sell it any longer. Almost nobody was open minded enough to even consider looking at mine. Jay is a friend from my teen years, and when I visited him in SF, he just loved it! Paul Nathan in SanFran also did it on 30 seconds to fame.

I did it at World Magic Seminar, and Jordan Wright bugged me about it for the rest of the session, LOL! He loved it!!!!

I've seen Jay do this tons of times, he's got it down to a science,
it's become almost a trademark piece for him.
Jimmy developed the piece and Jay took it to the next level.
It's so very different in tone and use from Hang'em there's room in the magic world for many variations and styles as long as they entertain,
which this one does.
I'd talk to Jimmy about rights before I went ahead performing it though.

Magically,
Walt

I love it too. If you were still selling it, I'd buy it.

I bought Ropeutation back in '92 from Hank Lee's, thought it was one of those tricks that sounded cool in print but the method was horrible...man was I wrong, I would get reqests to do this rope tick all the time! Alas, I lost the trick God only knows when.

That's funny, when I visited this thread in March the video was up on youtube, and now it's gone.

Fantastic funny routine, I PM'd Jimmy to see if it would ever be available but he didn't respond...so I guess the answer is no.

Yeah, LOL!!! I'll just never understand the magic business.

Hopefully, the link is back up... It's not searchable, you have to use the link provided above. Sorry about the PG material, I was working a comedy club.

Oh, hi Harv, and everyone.

At this time, I am not offering it, due to the difficulty in finding the correct graphite component for production, as well as it simply being a real difficult thing to make by hand, one at a time. I guess that I could publish the instructions for building your own, but, like I said, one or two of the elements used to make it are just too expensive to purchase one set at a time, and I can't even find one of the elements reasonably in bulk. No, it's not the rope...

Once I find supplies for this, I would like to put some together.

I was hanging out with some people that saw Jimmy Fingers do this routine one year ago here in Mexico.. and they were still talking about the ¨gringo con la cuerda¨
that´s why I ended up on this thread.. I wanted to see Jimmy do it again
it is such an amazing routine.. too bad Jimmy needs unicorn blood to build it...

EDIT: I meant to write unic*rn bl**d
