didn't see this forum...otherwise I would have posted to it first I think. oh well.

I'm just turning 21 and I've been messing with cards for as long as I can remember. I guess it was natural that I'd drift into doing card tricks as I got older, and then later into learning card manipulations.

basically I am strictly a card guy. maybe someday I'll get into doing pool balls, canes, and coins, but for now, I think cards will do me fine.

I imagine 75% of my posts will be about card manipuation, but I hope you guys wont get too sick of me. I'll post about other card stuff too, I promise.

a little background info, my favorite card trick is the three across, or the "Las Vegas Leaper" as I learned it, followed closely by "twisting the aces" - as a side note on that, does anyone know how that guy (can't remember his name. Hollingsworth or something like that) did the twisting aces bit, but then revealed them to be kings?

I live near Cincinnati, Ohio and work with web sites. I'm also learning how to do game programming (though magic is much more fun).

I guess you could say I'm a cat person, as I have 8 right now. I generally tend to have around 7 - 10 at any given time. some die, run away, others born, etc... they seem to be one of the constants in my life.

guess that's it for now. bye all

Don't worry about not finding this board sooner; you're here now and that's what counts.

Welcome, Kallak. I'm sure you'll add a lot to this cafe. There's always room for one more here. Relax and browse the menu. I'm sure Tora's strong Turkish coffee is on the way but in the meantime, have a snack on my bill and enjoy. Smile Smile

Hi Kallak,
So you're a card guy. Pasteboard prestidigitator, card fan, backpalmin, double liftin, side stealin, false cuttin, classic passin kind of person. Well, we don't do that here....N O T..... You came to the ONLY place to discuss that and so much more. Check out Guy Hollingsworth's Book Drawing Room Deceptions for that routine.

wow, thanks for the warm welcome (and the book reference - gotta go online shopping now).

so great to finally have a place to discuss with like-minded people. watching instructional tapes and reading books over and over again just isn't the same.

thanks again,

Kallak Smile

There is nothing that remains so constant as change. Don't end up like concrete, all mixed up and permanently set. Smile
