Dang, it!!! I'm on my way to dinner!!

I'm seriously bummed that I'm going to miss this.  But I love the spontaneous nature of this session.

Thanks Trini!

So glad I was able to join in for a spell. Thank you Trini for making us a sandwich![biggrin]

I was able to spend some time with Steve Friedberg. What a cool cat! He's motivated me to skull one of my John Bannon books* tonight. 

And what a place this forum has become! Just chillin' this afternoon with like-minded enthusiasts from Philly, Melbourne, Dallas, Oregon, Upstate NY and my little corner of the OC.

Sorry I couldn't join. I was out. And saw it on my cellphone but I was running out of battery. Maybe next time.

Frederick, tell us, what wonders have you found in the Bannon book? I have a copy and would like to know of a hidden treasure within its covers.

Luigimar,

Last night, I studied the first effect in the book, The Royal Scam. 

John Bannon introduces the routine as "an expanded version of Roy Walton's classic 'Cascade' -on steroids.

It is a packet trick where several identical red-backed Aces of Spades are displayed. A series of very visual transformations take place with a final stunning transformation and kicker.

A packet trick? Duplicate cards on display? I almost turned to the next effect when it dawned on me: (a) 
There's a good reason John Bannon put this effect first and (b) how fun this could be as an opener wherein one Ace of Spades--produced from thin air--begins to multiply... and that is just a prelude to the confounding behavior of the cards which follows.

Wow, thanks for the reply. It sounds like a pretty good effect. I will have to check it out.

Frederick,
Wow....thanks for the kind words.

You may appreciate that I did a set today at a magic shop near me...and the poker effect went over like gangbusters.  I'm really pleased at the way it's gone.  Also pulled out my copy of Bannon's "Six. Impossible. Things." and reviewed "Watching the Detectives."  

Let's keep this online thing going!

I also tried getting on and it wouldn't work too well. So I went and saw Captain America as well... and yes I had a Captain America sock on the left foot and an Iron Man sock on the right. I'm a nerd.
There is a benefit however. Yesterday I was able to wear a Captain America sock on the right foot and an Iron Man sock on the left.
No really... I'm a nerd...
