Bill very kindly has given me a peek of The Elvis Peek and it has proved a real delight.

The moves, such as they are, are very clean and straightforward. I have never been one for sleights or like being rushed in seeing and reading the required information. The Elvis Peek suits me fine. Not only do you get the information in a very subtle way but can read it at your leisure. It is mentalism that I like - kept simple but highly effective.

But this is not all.

Watching the explanation was instructive as well as a brilliant masterclass in presentation. The patter and what you tell the spectator really helps to elevate the effect. It just shows how a little more thought to how we present effects can make so much difference.

As I wrote earlier, this proved a real delight - not just the actual very full peek and clean way it is obtained but also what I learnt in how to present (including a fact Bill gave.)

Thanks to the conundrum of why this is called The Elvis Peek, it has already generated a lot of interest. But unlike some releases which have generated a lot of interest and then disappointed, this won't. The Elvis Peek is a first class peek, deceptive, straightforward, clear and, importantly, with the suggested presentation, is a brilliant piece of theatre and entertainment.

Thank you Bill, and well done.

Neil

Similar to one of my earlier posts, but clarifying that Elvis was a "voracious reader". I think I'm done here, maybe. I do have other things to do. Smile

He also had a reading chair in his bathroom. Someone may have made a less direct reference, early on. Done. Smile

It's called the Elvis peek cause it gives you a case of the stink lip. Meaning you have to curl up a section of billet like Elvis curled up his lip?

The contest is now over, having ended this mornin at 12AM Central Time. Thanks very much to all who participated. There were many creative guesses, some of them quite hilarious.

No one correctly guessed the real reason why The Elvis Peek is named as it is. The story goes back many years to a night in the summer of 1977. The date was 16 August. I was on vacation with my family in Las Vegas. After dinner that night, my Dad decided to take us all for a drive, out in the desert, miles away from the bright lights of the Vegas strip. We drove for an hour or so. I recall being sleepy, relaxed with my thoughts drifting. Everyone in the car was quiet.

Out of nowhere, an incredibly bright beam came down from the black sky, engulfing the car in an almost blinding white light. No one panicked. No one moved or said a word. I quickly realized my entire family were in a frozen state. Motionless and peaceful.

I felt my body lift up, rising through the car. I just melted through it. No pain. No noise. Nothing but a serene and surreal tranquility as I floated upwards in the light. I could see I was moving rapidly towards a very large object that appeared black with a series of flashing lights. For a split second I thought I would collide with the craft, but before I knew it, I was through it and on the other side.
