It'd be nice if people felt free to offer their honest opinions around here, without the fear that the creators will throw a hissy fit if they see something they don't like.

If you're upset that you feel there was overexposure here, just leave it at that, without taking it further and implying that people aren't entitled to their own preferences.

They are entitled to their opinion of course and I knew I would get a response like this. The thing is you are not in my shoes.

Spectacle is not significantly different enough to warrant to be being 'better' just because the position of a rivet. If he said it was better because of some other reason maybe I could understand but it is better because the rivet is not in the center??

Also, I have over TWELEVE rip offs of Out of Order in an envelope in my home. How do you think that makes me feel? How do you think it makes me feel to hear someone say a knock off is better because they moved the rivet when everything else is the same? I don't know if you are a creator of magic but until it happens to you then you will know how I feel.

No, I'm not in your shoes, but I do sympathize with your predicament. It sucks that you're getting ripped off. But the folks posting here aren't the ones who ripped off your idea. I don't have either effect, so I have no way of knowing how insignificant the rivet placement is, but if someone who owns both expresses a legitimate preference for one over the other, I don't think it's fair that they should bear the brunt of this transferred anger.

I will chime in by reiterating my initial post Angelo: I am not accusing you of ripping anything off nor am I one who would rip YOU off. That being said, the EFFECT at least does seem to predate you. However, again, your METHOD may be radically different. Look at how many ace assemblies there are for instance. The effect is basically the same but methods vary widely such that each deserves to be published as new approaches.

MacDonald's Aces is a beauty, from Vernon's work all the way to a beauty I am looking at now when not studying the new Wesley James effect, and that is Cameron Francis's "Frier." When you read the effect, you will perhaps notice that other similar effects have been published and WILL be published. However, Cameron's method has a gorgeous kicker and a wonderful conglomeration of methods.

I suppose however that when one is dealing with a prop as you are, then it all becomes a little more hazy.

Finally, you are a classy man for apologizing to Ustaad. That is the spirit of the Café Smile

Ahimsa,
Vlad

Hi Angelo,
I just received your effect and it is Great! Thanks so much for the great attention to customer service!!

And I would just step back Angelo, you've stated your position and I think to discuss intellectual property rights is pointless at least on this forum because it will just go round and round it goes where it'll stop nobody knows. Unless maybe someone here who practices law on this forum can educate us on the legal aspects of exclusive rights that cover intangible assests, artistic works, copyrights, industrial design rights, and trade secrets to name a few?

Hi Angelo,

We have known each other for years now and I truly appreciate and recognize your original works. I have never promoted rip-offs (and I have said so) since they undermine the value of the original effect and the creator's hard work. One can always improvise but creating something new takes talent, imagination, experimentation and years of hard work. Not to mention the amount of money that gets spent in the process as well.

However, one should also realize that it is the creator and not the improviser who has inner peace and sense of accomplishment. This is something which cannot be taken away.

Angelo my friend, no apologies here, I like your innovations and fully support them. However improvised a rip-off maybe, it will always remain a rip-off.

Thank you,

With best regards,

Narendra

I recently purchased Out of Order directly from Angelo. It is a great packet trick to carry around and a real fooler. Please support the creator and order it directly from the creator, Angelo. He was a pleasure to deal with.

I just bought this a few weeks ago from SEO Magic and this trick is FAN-figgin-tastic!

The method is so ingenious, and it took me like a full day to just wrap the method around my brain! Doing the trick is extremely easy, re-set is fast, and their is zero fear of the spec ever figuring this little gem out.

A co-worker of mine who has more of an engineer mind was so intrigued by that he wouldn't give it back to me for 2 days.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

If You like that clever principle You should check out Denis Behr's Oil and Water Routine from "Handcrafted Miracles" for a really good application of it...

I know its currently drying out, it still works but maybe now it may draw attention to the secret if you know what I mean. I might just have to buy it again.

OK so here is a "discovery" I made with my "Out Of Order" - at least to me.

The video demo shows the magician performing the trick twice in a row - in other words the cards can go from out of order, back to order, then out of order again.

Those who own this effect know that even when you know the "secret" - it can be deceiving even to the performer. My point is I couldn't initially figure out how to get the cards to change back and forth without loc***g.

But it is possible to go back and forth and literally perform the change indefinitely and easily once you know the method.

I agree, get a hold of Aneglo. I would not be comfortable just releasing the working of the effect just like that so freely let alone just for the asking.

Hi magicfriends

thank you very much. I just contacted angelo. but I think it doesent matter anyway, because the cards are broken now, they came apart. I tried hours and hours without having the chance
to understand how it works.

best wishes
