JamieD, thanks for that detailed review and your own personal thoughts on the coin to ice cube vs. the solid ice production.

Not sure if this has been raised on this thread, but if the ice is used for repeat workaround performances and handled by multiple spectators, does the DVD discuss hygiene, cleaning of the ice after eat performance. I know I wouldn't want to be touching a piece of ice after knowing someone else has touched it.

I have no doubt that this is a reputation ala Cris Angel/David Blaine/Dynamo making effect but I just want to make sure that the hygiene aspect has been raised and discussed. Most of us are already pulling out dirty ropes for professor's nightmare, sponge balls that lye in your sweaty pockets and ppl's hands for months on end ( I hope ppl clean their's or replace them with new ones regularly), having a dirty block of ice passed around would be icing on the cake. If it is discussed on the dvd, perfect, my order will be in direct to RSVP, I've been meaning to buy child's play for a while so I can kill two birds with one stone.

Hi Baobow good question the ice actually never gets dirty and you never put in any ones drinks I have never had a problem with this in all the years I have done this hope that put your mind at rest and if it was a concern you could always carry more ice but to be honest its not needed.

I never worry about the props used. I carry these little postcards that list the FDA's guidelines of acceptable levels of fly eggs, rat feces and other 'natural" ingredients allowed in our food supply. Anytime someone balks at touching a prop because it "might not be clean", I give them one of the cards and watch their facial expression as they read it.

Lol! I'm loving that as an opening line and with your permission I'll be using that once mine arrives.

Baobow, are you being serious? It's ICE! Aka water. That's used to wash your hands. Plus it melts so that top layer of "dirty water" would be cleaned away. Defo would love to see one of your gigs when you sterilise your hands after ever effet or sime can't use coins because they are just to dirty!

I have sent away for a gaget that drycleans your deck of cards.

From now on I will use it after each table or group of people I perform for. I have also invested in some stickers which I will add to each chosen card, informing the lay public that the chosen card has been steralised. Also I have a friend who is a nurse, and she has managed to obtain a badge for me which I am going to wear at all times. The badge asks people to ask me if I have washed my hands.

Also, I must add that when I perform Childs Play I don't use a real child, instead I use a artificial one and it has been steralised as per Chris's instructions on the dvd.

ps, please tell me the earlier post was just a joke.

Just posted an interview with Kieron Johnson about how he got into magic, his influences, his first gigs, and becoming a magician.

Thanks for sharing Dominic. Always nice to read about the path performers take when becoming a magician. I find them all interesting.

Would I be able to vanish the coin with my tko and use the coin in ice effect?

Hey Reign of Sound,

I can only assume if you tweaked the handling it would work fine... Just guessing but what a cracking idea!!!

Thanks!
Just not sure how practical the retrieval of the coin would be and the handling to get it from the tko to this

TKO is MASSIVELY practical!!

You could follow the instructions of the handling and then use the TKO in the final phase of the effect...
