Be careful, I understand that these cherries are made of the cheap and light plastic that you encounter in a fake bowl of fruit. I would stick to the fake olives that Donnie sells at RNTII. They have the mass/weight you need for certain vanishes and they look realistic.

Good call on that. Olives can also be obtained from Magicsmith http://www.magicsmith.com/replacement-olives.html

It is very entertaining but looks similar to Vernon's one, I already have a lot of material on c&b, by Ammar, mendoza, vernon, colombini. What would this routine will add to those?

Many have assumed that this is just another version of the Vernon routine. It is not however. Yes the very first part starts off like Vernon's but then takes a different route. This is all explained in the pdf. This is Michael's version of Charlie Miller's Impromptu Cups and Balls routine which can be found in Bruce Elliot's book CLASSIC SECRETS OF MAGIC.

What Michael called his Scatter Phase is one of the main draws to this routine. The Scatter phase can be added most C&B routines that use the 3 balls and three cups.

Good to read that you are pleased with the manuscript Robert. As I have said it is a very good routine. One that I and others have used for many years.

By learning somebodies routine you learn somebodies thinking and this can be very rewarding. I like Micheal Skinners thinking. it is these kind of recording of routine that will take care that Micheal is not forgotten. very good job guys.

Thank you again from Steve P. and Myself for your comments. Here is one that Andrew Pinard also made.


Andrew Pinard This is an important manuscript detailing a remarkable routine from one of magic's most dedicated practitioners. Skinner's "Scatter Phase" is very strong and has significant impact on viewers. Highly recommended for students of the cups and balls..."

Not sure of all the guests on the Tonight Show video. My guesses:

- Jack Lemmon
- Joe Flynn
- Tony Curtis...or Tony Randall
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

From Michael's far right. Jack Lemmon, Joe Flynn, On Michael's left was the Guest host of the Tonight Show for that evening. Tony Curtis.
