Would be great sometime to have a session just on tricks using the Faro Shuffle. Maybe down the road.

Good suggestion rready. If you are in the book club and have entered its "secret area" I posted a video of Vernon's Aces (performance), which uses the Faro Shuffle.

Hi Chi Han,

Just sent you a PM.  Not sure about a session, but if you'd wish to "session," I certainly can.  I am afraid it is 2am though...  details in PM

Hope all is well.

Hello! I really enjoy these sessions and the people on them -- great stuff. I would love to be notified about future sessions. I hope Rudy will notify us but I know he is a busy guy. I think everyone on the forum would benefit from these events. Hopefully I'll see you all at the next meeting. johnny

Would love to be able to join in the sessions but on Saturdays I'm usually not available until later in the day, and I'm in Alaska so there's a time difference involved as well.

It appears that I am getting into this conversation late, I have since subscribed and do wonder; How did this play out and, are the replays available to watch?

Hi David,

There hasn't been a session for a while. Maybe one could be scheduled?? Rudy has to do a lot of work to pull off a google hangouts session that can be recorded. If he's busy, maybe it's possible to set one up informally and without a recording.

Interest?

I mentioned this somewhere else and Rudy wanted to schedule one for last week but I guess he is really busy so it did not happen. It would be a good idea to have one soon...

Barrett and I have been doing semi-frequent skype chats whenever we have something to show, or we want to talk about magic world happenings (i.e. fool us etc...) I'm happy to set up a google hangout if people are interested. Someone want to propose a time?

Saturdays are hectic for me, as well, but I would love the opportunity to participate and also to see replays if at all possible.

Rudy has access to an advanced google hangout that lets you record the session. The free hangout doesn't let you record as I understand it.

I do think that "Rudy's Rule" is a good one. The session is only available to those who participated.

Me too - it encourages people to sign up.  If everyone just decided to "watch it later" there might be no actual participants.

Some attendees have hung out in Starbucks  or another place that provides internet access and signed into the session from there. I think all McDonalds now have fairly fast internet access. Might make your attendance possible???

Hmm... You know, it just might. I'd have to drive to nearby town, but I could easily enough combine a session with some scheduled errands. At any rate I hadn't considered the possibility, so thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Fellas,

I apologize for not being as active on this forum as I would like to be.

Here is a short video of me sharing some of what's been keeping me busy. I also share how to perform a variation of Harry Lorayne's, Relationships Plus from Jawdroppers Two.

Hi Rudy.

Thanks for that and what  great trick. I've ordered JD2 and OMA a week or so ago can't wait. 

I'm sure all of us understand exactly where you are coming from regarding the difficulties of balancing the many facets of our lives. I can only speak for myself although I'd be very confident these thoughts are shared throughout the forum, that I would expect that your family and congregation and community would and should be the priority in your life.

Time management is certainly not one of my strengths but I've certainly been much happier in recent years when I've put family at the top of the priority list and work and all other things (including magic) distant seconds.. (my wife may disagree with this as a reality?!?). Definitely learning to say "No." and not feeling bad about is a difficult skill but vital.

Rudy just do what you can. That's all you can do and no-one should expect anymore than that.

Gareth

i'd be keen this weekend Chi Han if you could set a hangout up. Sat or sunday am our time?? (remembering the clocks go back an hour here this Sat night. this might make things tricky i'm not sure.)

I'm up for that.  Saturday at 9am our time work for you?  That's 0900 AEST.  Of course if more people want in I don't mind adjusting the time.  I think our usual one is 0700 AEST on Sunday, which is 1700 EST on Saturday for most people.

For me and you 9am Sat works but for the US that's Fri afternoon so that might be tricky. Just for reference at the present time
6am SUNDAY 

is;

3pm SATURDAY in Chicago
1pm SATURDAY in LA
4pm  SATURDAY in NY
9pm SATURDAY in LONDON 

but this weekend Tas and Vic go forward one hour so 6am Sunday will be an hour earlier (i think)  for the US and UK time zones above. This also assumes as i haven't checked that none of these US or UK time znes change this weekend?  Ouch my head hurts.

I'm good with Sat at 9am but I'm not sure about others.

Also if there's a time (and Rudy don't feel obligated to attend) that fits Rudy's schedule we should aim for that. I think he needs some forum session love!

Hi Fellas, 

I could actually do a Friday afternoon more easily than a Saturday. It still counts as a Saturday Session for Gareth and Chi Han!

This Friday or next Friday both work for me. Could we do 2pm or 2:30pm (Pacific) work? 

Rudy

I'm a go for this Friday too. If we can get a few more, I'll send out an email to the forum and invite them to join us. I know it's last minute, but those who can join us will have a great time!

Rudy

I could join a little later. I get off work at about 4 (2 Pacific) and then I have to get home and it takes me about 1/2 hour to get there. The internet connection is not that good at work to watch it smoothly so I would have to do it from home but I'm in if you don't mind my being a little late...

Would "observing to see what it's all about since I've never seen one before" count as "participating"?

I heard Friday 2PM Pacific, which is 4PM Central for me. If that's it, I'm in. Looking forward to a session. I'm starved for magical friends around here.

You are welcome to join us and yes, that absolutely counts as participating. See you Friday!

I’ll be sending out an invitation to the rest of the forum.

Rudy

Hi Rudy - looking forward to seeing you Friday. I imagined that you were likely busy with "life." It's often difficult to say "no" to friends, family and your congregation. Be sure to find time to chill out and just meditate or play your guitar. Or maybe do a card trick or two! 

I'm retired and yet incredibly busy. I can't understand how I used to work full time, did magic on the weekends and somehow accomplished all the other necessary things as well. I was a single parent with custody of my son. Yikes!! 

The forum seems to run on auto pilot fairly well so you should be able to take as much time away from TMF responsibilities as you like. We'll be OK.

Thanks for the reminder, but yeup.  The google hangout actually has a countdown so I've become doubly sure!

Just to be sure, what format are these sessions? Is it all chat-based or video where everyone needs a cam and mic or some sort of mixture? I've never attended a Google hangout and I work in IT....go figure. Oh, since this is a magic forum, I guess I should clarify that by "IT" I mean "Information Technology" not any sort of thread [wink]

Hi JustChico - the session is a video session. I think it only accommodates 10 with video feeds. After that it's text as I understand it. You'll need a webcam to participate in the video session.

Also, Rudy can record the session and make it available only to those who participated.

If you all are still doing this I would be happy to be invited some time. I do not know for sure if I will be able to join since I live in Belgium and because of the time difference because of that. But I surely am interested.
