Well I have said it before, but for you I will repeat it:

This video was very well made. You clearly have skills in more than one field.

I like everything you are doing and you are earning my respect.

Great job!


As long as you can stay "unaffected" (I am not just referring to attitude... but more so to body language and the way you present your moves) and as long as you don't get a swelled head, then you are a star in my book.
Great stuff,
as always.

Some people have a swagger when they walk, some card men have something similar to a swagger in the way they handle cards... it is "affected".

There are a few big names that have this problem so badly that you know who they are immediately just by seeing footage of their hands... you can even tell who their students are. If you can avoid the "I'm too sexy for my cards" body language that creeps in to most of the gambling demo's on the internet then that is what I am getting at.

I've heard it referred to as "handling the cards with confidence" but is can certainly be overdone and also points up skill rather than promotes deception. Anyway, I am sorry to have given this much explanation as it is not something I consider you to be guilty of... just something I would hate to see happen to your work.

Im afraid to tell you that pretty much all of your points are things I want to achieve someday
especially being confindet and "creating" a distinctive style of handling the cards is something I was working on since I started (and hopefully I will get there eventually)

I completly agree, but I should mention that I'll never intended to start a career as a card cheat
I mainly practise those moves for fun and to share them with other card guys

Im sorry to disappoint you, but I thought I should make that clear Smile

-Not disappointed...

"it's your thing, do what you want to do...
I can't tell you
how to bust a move."

besides, you missed my real point, but it seems it wasn't worth making in the first place.

Smile I think it was one of the best points we have heard here in a long time, maybe Our Magic explains it somewhere under attitude.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

The one-handed bottom thingy is my favourite, even though I always love your work very much.

Hahaha, thanks for the plug. Young man, the day I release serious videos I might call upon you. You do very nice video work (as well as handling cards nicely).

PS: next Arcanum(s), soon, very soon. Some have even seen pages this afternoon. Ask popcalinda Smile.

Normally, this year I'll release 2 Arcanums, #2 (Controls, part I) and one "special edition (SE)". I still plan #2 for September and SE for the end of the year. The main problem is that SE is already 120 pages in length and growing in size every week. I'm afraid it's gonna be a HUGE one... Anyway, until then there will be something else released in July and August.

I apologize for being so slow at writing but life's not so easy. Besides, I'm a bit perfectionist, as you might have noticed... And, as usual, some people supposed to "help" me have disappeared. From now on, I will work with the same 2-3 guys, I'll avoid bad surprises.

Thanks to the all of you for inquiring.
