I just flew into New York City and had the honor and privilege of being at Tannen's Magic Shop after years. It looks like Tannen's has become a mentalism mecca with that trick LIFT and also the newest thing I bought that just blew me away. I am talking about the Depicting Thoughts Set, just killer. I recommend it highly, plus I love everything that ParaLabs puts out they're all winners. If you're looking to buy this I think Tannen's is the only one that has these.

Depicting Thoughts, with all the accompanying features, is fantastic. I think, however, you can get it via ParaLabs directly and recommend if so that you support the creators.

ParaLabs has also released a marked version of the PLF deck. This is equally phenomenal and opens up many new doors.

Add to that their marked ESP decks, the best I've ever used, and ParaLabs has really made quite a contribution to mentalism. There is more to come and, again, whenever possible, support the creators!

Bill,

Do you think Tannen's didn't buy these from the creator? Imo, support the few remaining B/M shops. Its not like the creators are out of the loop.

Respect,
Billy

For your information Mr. Cushman Tannen's had the Marked Depicting Thoughts Sets and is also the exclusive distributor of ParaLabs stuff in the USA. In fact, Rainer (the guy at ParaLabs) directed me towards Tannen's to buy it. Rainer and Thomas are great, I met them at MindVention, their mentalism products are the best.

For your information, CarlZen, it is Dr. Cushman Smile.

No need to come across with attitude, intentional or unintentional. Think happy thoughts... Smile
Dr. Bill's point, as I see it is: We are a small community with some talented and nice people as creators.
If you can, think about supporting them directly.

Peace, my friends! Smile

Thanks a lot for all your appreciation; and even if we're obviously happy with colleagues who contact us directly, we're happy as well with colleagues who visit our friends at Tannen's!

As Ant Jacquin from Headhacking offers our work in the UK, Tannen's offers the opportunity for all those interested in the US to take a look at our material and get it immediately. And I know by experience that there are US mentalists who feel more secure in ordering material from inside the US anyway.
AND - in addition to this - I am told that the guys at Tannen's do a really good job in demonstrating our tools! Smile

So thanks again to all our supporters, whether they they visit our shop or Tannen's or Headhacking !
Peace!

Hey Steve,

great to hear that we see us at Tabla next week.
All so for you:

If you need anything else from us... let us know.

@CarlZen


thank you for your honest review.
Like Thomas wrote, a lot of the american mentalists like to order from a local dealer. Tannens is doing a great job and we heard a lot of their demonstration skills.

By the Way:

the Picture Cards Stage Deck is available in two weeks at Tannens, Headhacking and of course in our shop.
The ESP Stage Cards are available in our shop and at Tannens and Headhacking next week.

cheers
Rainer

Hi Rainer
Don't want to derail the thread, but as its about your stuff anyway maybe it's OK
I need a new pen for my Parapad, mines dried up.

And I'm interested when your hook-up will be available.

I have to agree with all of the praise for the Depicting Thoughts set. I have it and am blowing guys away with it. Yesterday,I fooled some very knowledgeable mentalists with it. As to the general public, I only did this in s few shows so far, but it got a great reaction and is now part of my repertoire.

I also have the large set of their marked ESP/Zener cards. Again, excellent stuff.

Thomas and Rainer have taken the time,effort and expense to produce very high quality props which are very sturdy and aesthetically pleasing. The accompanying books are an education in themselves.

ParaLabs items have my highest recommendation.

So the bottom line is that a person can select a picture card and you tell them what it is? Is this correct?

This jewel from Thomas and Rainer is stuff memories are made of (No pun intended).
Then you'll rise right before my eyes, on wings that fill the sky, like a phoenix rising!

Hmm, ... well, it's not that easy, ... rather ... no!

We are pretty detailed in how present a revelation in our Depicting Thoughts book; and if you would present it the way you suggested, you would squander the real strength of this tool. You would just replace a playing card (for example) by a picture, but perform the same way - and this would be a pity!

Compare the following two revelation scenarios:

You perform a mind reading routine with playing cards. Your participant choses the 3 of hearts. Your revelation could look like this:

    “I see a red card, it's hearts, ... a number card, low, uneven – is it a 3 of hearts?”

Let's take a look on a revelation sequence from our Depicting Thoughts set.
A participant choosing an image from our PLF Picturecard deck, can pick one which triggers some personal memories, which she can imagine in a concrete, possibly emotional situation and which therefore gains a subjective meaning for her.
Due to the respective trick handling, this of course does not play any role for the purely technical procedure of choosing this image, but it will help you sell the image determination in your presentation!
As soon as the participant had chosen her image, you can “slowly approach” its determination by associating a situation and – if required and possible – flavour this with a little Cold Reading. And this will definitely reinforce the whole effect yet again.

Let's say the participant choses the lighthouse - and we secretly identified this picture.

    „Please look at the Object ... in your mind, ...
    ... no, ... you have to go nearer, – there’s too much distance!
    Oh, – did you put your head back?!?
    Now you have to look up to see it as a whole - right?!

    ... Yes! – That’s pretty big! ... High!

    And ... there are noises! ... I can hear them?! ...
    Sounds like ... crying ... screaming ... roaring, ...!
    There are birds, ... ... smells like ... salt ... on my lips!

    Waves, ... the sea, ... stones, ...
    ... the colors ... white ... and red, ...!
    ... does this match your thoughts by any means!?“

Even if this is an abridged version of what we would actually perform - but did you realize the difference between both revelations? Not only that we can be much more emotional and sensual in our wording, more than this we don't even talk about a picture! We talk about her personal memories! So we not read a chosen picture from her mind, ...
... we rather read her personal thoughts and memories and sensations and emotions! More often than not we don't even name the picture at all.

We are very explicit on this topic in our book, because it is one of the most important aspects in mind reading anyway.

This sounds amazing. Thank you for the additional information, you've sold me on this. Exactly the kind of emotional impact I look for.

If I ordered the marked PLF Picturecard Stack, would I also need to get the Depicting Thoughts Set in order to get the full benifit of this item?

I have my eyes on the marked set and my finger resting next to the paypal button!
