Hi griff13,

It is a trick about romance, two hearts that come together. I do not want to divulge too much here but with these few words you will undoubtedly recognize it.

Have fun at the lecture,

Yves


Yup, that's an effect he showed us during the Toronto lecture as well. It's quite good, simple and direct. Take good notes though...because it's not explained on the DVDs nor in his lecture notes. Smile

Thanks Yves!

And thank you digitaltrip also! that's a good tip on the lecture. I'm normally not a note taker. But if its not in the lecture notes, I guess I better be prepared Smile

I suggest you go to his lecture if you get a chance, because of the small savigs that you get, but he also gave away a set of notes for the people that attended his lecture.. Im not sure if he will do it for all his lectures, but its still worth checking out... Im not even a fan of his magic, but I do like listening to him speak about his theories in magic performance...

27. ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON - The selection appears in a borrowed salt shaker! The spectator calls "stop" on a random card as his selection. The magician rips the corner of that selected card and places it on the table in full view. The ripped card is then pushed into the middle of the deck, lost. He then takes out a rubber band and wraps up the entire deck with it. Then he takes a borrowed salt shaker and hits the deck with it. Visibly a play card appears from within the salt shaker. He takes it out and it's the spectator's signed card with the corner ripped out of it. The corner that was in full view is then matched up with the salt shaker card and everything perfectly matches.
----------------------------------

A borrowed salt shaker?? Or is this a borrowed shaker he has had a chance to examine? Smile

Digital, WOW! You really outdid yourself on that review! My hats off to you!

I enjoyed reading yourn descriptions immensely, and am determined to get this, when I can come up with the bucks.

Question: Personally, which of those effects were your personal favorites? Out of all those, do you have any idea which ones, in your judgement, were the very strongest?

This is misleading there is some set-up before hand...but it can be done to a borrowed salt shaker...typical Jay descriptions.

How about the "With OVER FIVE HOURS of innovative, eye-popping card magic" promise? Is it really that long? I guess I'll have to wait till I receive it

It's actually about 4 hours long. The first volume is about 1:18 hours and the second volume is 2:42 hours.

Hey Doug,

No problem! Glad you liked it!

Some of my personal favourites include:
Cardivores, In Captivity, Helter Skelter, I.D., Fort Knox, Paper Cut, Assault With A Deadly Weapon, etc. For me, I found "I.D." very strong...along with "Cardivores" and "In Captivity". I haven't tried them out yet on people but from an effect standpoint, they're pretty good in my opinion. There's more that I like too...I just can't remember them at the moment (27 effects on the DVDs!).

Even after writing my own review, I'm most curious about what others think about the DVD too! I hope more reviews will come in.

I second that. The more the better. Always helps to have many perspectives.

Still, I like Sankey, and negative reviews would be hard pressed to dissuade me from ordering when I come up with the dough.

Thanks again for the "Brief" review! However I don't understand why you were so brief, please take a little more time next time to elaborate a little more. I hate those short reviews. Smile


Brief my $#%@! lol. Very informative, and one of the best I have ever seen. Keep up the good work! Smile

I like the fact that all the secrets are on the second dvd. This would allow for magicians to show dvd 1 to their friends, or other magicians for their opinions on the effects, without worry of divulging the secrets. great idea!

Hi sirbrad,

Yup, that's definitely how it's structured with these DVDs...volume 1 is performances (all 27 of them!) and volume 2 is explanations of effects & sleights. And no problem about writing the review, I'm glad you found it informative! As for it being brief, I'll try harder next time. Smile In the future, I'll elaborate so much that the Café will have to get another web server to host my content.
