Hi everyone,

Thought I'd inform about a new effect by Reese Goodley that I found out about yesterday on Facebook. This is the third in a series of effects that Reese is releasing through 13 Souls Productions; the first two being 'Pocket Pal' and 'In the Name of Bob'.

This new, third release is entitled 'Down the Rabbit Hole' and, to me, sounds awesome! Having seen Reese's excellent thinking on propless mentalism in 'Navigator' (which I have performed a lot with great results), I was immediately intrigued by this new effect, and decided to order it right away. I'm really looking forward it!!

For more info, I have pasted the ad copy that Reese put out on Facebook yesterday:


"Vol 3

Down the Rabbit Hole - Reese Goodley

Many years ago, the idea of plucking a long word from a participantís mind seemed like a pipe dream. Then came ďThe Mother of All Book TestsĒ - undoubtedly one of the cleverest resources to achieve that desired result with little compromise. An insanely creative idea from an incredibly creative performer.

Imagine for a few seconds being able to perform that effect... with no book! The participant thinks of a long and interesting word and you can divine it in under one minute. The participant never writes anything down, they do not choose their word from a list - they create the word in their own mind and without any suspicious fishing you tell them what it is. More importantly there is no heavy mental acrobatics for the participant. This is that clever it can even be done over the phone!

The 13 Souls are proud to present Reese Goodleyís linguistic system to achieving this.

This is ďDown the Rabbit HoleĒ.

A limited edition booklet containing a prop-less system created by one of mentalismís underground stars - With complimentary video content of performances and extra subtleties to compliment the booklet!

Peter Turner adds a bonus routine and a failsafe take on this incredible plot in this booklet and whilst itís cliche to say - he said he wished he had created it.

Thereís only 100 booklets available and all orders will be posted directly from the printers this coming Wednesday. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR ADDRESS IN THE NOTES.

To order yours - the price is 50 Gbp / 65Usd / 58Eur

Price includes free shipping worldwide! Click the link and get yours now"

Here is the link to make the payment - PayPal.me/The13souls. If the link doesn't work, then you can send payment to peterturnermind@hotmail.co.uk via Paypal.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hey guys,

Just a quick heads up - if you purchase this PayPal will likely send you an email telling you itís a digital product - ignore this itís very much a physical item we had to list it on there as a digital item because PayPal was trying to force us to use their postal estimating service (which is terrible) and we have our own collection / postal man now. Just thought Iíd give everyone a heads up.

About the effect, Iím so happy we got to host this one!

I thought this might be of interest to the group. Reese just put a performance online, itís fresh to see nothing cut out and a performer actually airing their material. Refreshing.

Here's what scarier.

It's the same word I thought of. Now that's good.

When I watched the beginning of the film, I thought (for some reason) of the word biscuit.

It would be interesting to know if that word could also have been successfully divined.

It was, though, a very impressive demonstration.

The video is impressive, but at the same time, I believe that some people might notice a significant statement. I feel that by asking about a letter placement and receiving a response, this helps lead to limited options.

Maybe Iím overthinking or maybe not.

It might just be me but I feel "telephone" is an unlikely word for a young person to think of these days. In the UK I would think it might be "phone" or "mobile" and in the states "cellphone" but I think very few young people would seek out "telephone" as a word. If this IS a genuine free choice and that's what she thought of independently then it makes the divination more impressive.

Purely out of interest, I asked my wife which word she would use - she said mobile and phone would be her most likely choice. Definitely not cellphone.

As with effects of this nature it would be interesting to know just how much memory work is involved.

Iím not sure that phone would meet the criteria of ďa long and interesting wordĒ at least 6 or 7 letters. I am not familiar with the method but I would suspect that Mobile would be captured by this.

This is really interesting. Do I have to be a memory genius for this?

True, and the he asks for the actual 3rd letter.

She says "L"...

So he guesses telephone,

Meh... Not so impressive.

It's a bit like, if I exxagerate the process: "think of a short word... Ok, does it begin with a C ? / No... / So what letter does it begin with ? / D... / Ok, so you are thinking of Dog !"

Just an idea for those worried about asking for the letter...some may think it's overkill but hey...

Think I once saw a sw**i built into a Sharpie once, you can tell the spec to think of the third letter....pretend to write it down...say something like "keep on repeating it like N,N,N" if that doesn't hit (which they won't know about) ask them to reveal the letter, sw**i it onto your pad and reveal that what you wrote was correct

Iím thinking of a 6 or 7 letter word beginning with D - tell me what it is? If you can guess correct il be honest but Iíll bet youíll be wrong. The logic in your post makes no sense as it undermines one of the greatest principles (in my opinion) in mentalism - the principle used in mother of all booktests. Youíre essentially saying (if Iíve got this right) that a layperson wouldnít be impressed with mother of all book tests (as it uses a similar method) and Iíve killed with that for well over a decade - and in the mother of all book tests you have to ask for the first letter! At least the third letter is more inconspicuous. Iím not saying for a second saying this release will be good (or bad) I donít usually pick up prop-less Mentalism but it was its tie (in the ad copy) to mother of all booktests that pushed me. If it helps that routine or gives me food for thought at the price itís worth it. You can from the demo make judgements of the performance but letís reserve judgment on the effect till we see it in full detail.

I also perform the MOABT a LOT. And asking for the first letter is not a problem, as you can justify the potential miss, and asking for the actual letter flies by the spectator. I never said that a layperson wouldn't be impressed by the MOABT, never, because everything is justified.

But here this is different. From what I saw in the video clip, it seems really akward.

Itís a free choice Smile - when you understand the method (thereís nothing missing from the video) it shows you how clever this is. Reese aired the full video, think of how many creators would have cut that miss out? Or aired a best case scenario - Multiple times he hit that 3rd letter with me (when he showed me it) and if heíd hit and aired that everyone would be biting his hands off to get one, but Reese is honest and fair and said he wants to market things the way he feels is non-misleading so he left that in Smile


You donít need to be a memory expert, itís accessible for everyone Reese will be the first to tell you he likes simple and straight forward.

Perform for a group or close up - your choice. I canít confirm or deny language restrictions, in my head it should work.

There are multiple dodges in the book provided for gaining the third letter (which you need) - This is the quickest and most direct way. I have a dodge (not in this booklet) for mother of all booktests where I hit the first letter every time Smile you could use that in this too I reckon.

May I ask for more specifics about what exactly seemed awkward to you? Is it the letter being wrong? Or the way questions are asked or presented?

Has anyone who has got this be prepared to give a review?

I am sure many would be interested.

Thanks
