Derek, Glad you're on the mend.

I guess a close call like that can change your perspective.

All the best.

Thanks Mary. Only time will tell if I end up back in the ER or not. It's weird that all I can think about it wanting to get out and perform.

Derek I think a nice purchase is Lou Serrino's Steel ball Routine. It's Great, simple, and the extras on the DVD are also good. The extras are nothing ground breaking, or even "new", but it’s simple strong, theatrical magic.

Torn and restored tissue paper
Magic Castle coin matrix
Here there and everywhere
Card to picture frame
of course the steel ball routine

The package is about $100 but it includes everything you need. I don’t think that is too much to ask for when it comes to a professional, giving you a professional routine. Lou also adds in a few bonuses that are worth looking into as well.

I have always LOVED Lou's Steel Ball routine. Simply elegant. Clean, and straight forward. The only reason I shy away from it is because I have a few steel balls floating around that seem to be close to that size and they are pretty heavy. makes my jacket pull. And if I'm guessing correct on the method then I feel this routine would eat too much usable pocket space and weight a tad much to use for any type of strolling or behind the bar style magic (Actually if I'm right it could work behind the bar better then in a close up situation with proper timing and a little adjusting). But for a close-up show. I would recommend this to anyone, You cant really beat the straight forward elegance and simplicity of the steel balls and the in your face straight forwardness of the effect, clean, direct, strong... Perfect.

Holy cow! You have some kind of plastic tubing fetish? Seriously, hope you get well whatever the problem is.

Sorry to hear about your medical issues. This is a perfect time to read books like maximum entertainment by ken Weber that alone will help you out with your character development. If you read this book, I highly suggest you have a highlighter and a pen as well, to highlight important parts, and to write notes in the margins. When you are done, and have applied a few of the techniques talked about, go back and re-read the book again and apply more techniques, then rinse and repeat, until you are Copperfield famous.

Study the work of performers like Bob Sheets and Doc Eason. Both built careers on "standard" material.

a long time ago I worked at Micky Hades Int'l here in Seattle. Steve Minch was the manager then. he used to shake his head and say that people were always coming in and asking "what's new?" when they should have been asking "what's good?"

I would second Ken Weber's book, Maximum Entertainment. This is an easy to read book that is loaded with great ideas and observations.
