I didn't know who Steve Dobson was until I needed someone to fill in for me at a gig that I wasn't able to attend to. My friend Brian recommended him to me and I heard rave reviews about his performance from the event coordinators.

I finally met him in person when I took him and his girlfriend, Ora, out to dinner as a "thank you" for helping me out. I immediately liked him. He's got a very kind and generous spirit about him that I was drawn to.

As you can guess, I asked him if he could show me some magic. He then proceeded to absolutely destroy my mind with a deck of card (and a pair of dice). 

I had no idea that I was at the table with a man who was referred to as "the Dai Vernon of the North West".

I'm now blessed to count Steve Dobson as a friend.

As a favor to me, Steve has agreed to do a lecture for the Magician's Forum! Please mark your calendar for March 4th at noon (Pacific) and plan to join us for (what I'm sure will be) an excellent lecture!

The cost is just five bucks!

You can register here: https://goo.gl/fdvunJ

I know that you won't be disappointed!

I met Steve at a convention several years ago and got to hang with him for much of the convention.  He was totally awesome and blew the minds of everyone around him.  He fooled Simon Lovell with the same coin matrix trick multiple times (I forget what it's named, but I think it's on one of his videos) and Simon broke down and bought his video on the spot because the trick had blown his mind so bad.  I watched that trick seven times before I even had an inkling as to how it was done. 

To anyone considering signing up:  Don't hesitate! This man is truly amazing!  Very nice guy too.

Just signed up. 

After the Magician's Forum, is there any other platform that consistently offers this much value and education to magicians? 

I would also like to say, I knew Rudy Tinoco before he became an important, historic figure in the art of magic.

Thanks for the kind words, Steve [smile]

This forum just keeps getting better and I owe that all to the generous men who have offered up their talents to our members as well as good folks like you to continue to help create this positive community.

I hope you're doing well, my brother!

Rudy

Hi Everyone,

I want to personally take a moment to thank all of you who've registered for my lecture this Saturday at noon. I'm looking forward to it!

I'll be giving this lecture LIVE from Rudy's home in Forest Grove which is not too far from where I live. I'll be teaching several effects using cards, coins and even dice. Many of which are suitable in walk around settings.

There is still time for you to sign up. The cost is five dollars which includes access to the video recording of my lecture.

Here is the link for you to register: https://goo.gl/fdvunJ

Thank you,

Steve

I've seen Steve work countless times and he never fails to amaze and entertain. Last Friday night he kept a room full of magicians slack-jawed and laughing for hours! This will be a fun lecture...

Fantastic lecture with eclectic subjects.

Thank you Steve Dobson and Rudy!

Words cannot describe how this is the "best deal in town."

And... this is really becoming a community as evidenced by the "text banter" occurring during the break.  [smile]  That is saying something good in the era of communication we live in.  And it shows the level of acceptance and comfort for this kind of e-venue lecture.

Every one of these has been terrific.  

And again thanks to Steve Dobson for showing me stuff that I had no idea existed!

It was a fantastic lecture! I hope you didn't miss it.

Thanks Steve and Rudy and everybody who made it possible...

I will be using 2 or 3 things right out of this lecture. I hope I get the chance to practice more things... I am already thinking how to combine things from Steve Dobson's lecture and Steve Reynolds' lecture. This is exciting!

Well, gotta go practice!

Definitely worth much more than the $5 entry fee. I got several great things that I will use. 

I think it's possible to buy in after the fact, right? It's a great investment of $5.

I'm so glad that you all enjoyed Steve's lecture. I had a great time watching him and enjoyed being fooled at several points.

As Mike said, this lecture is still available to purchase for just five bucks. Just click on the following link and then once you've registered send me an email so that I can add you to the list of folks who can view the private video link... https://goo.gl/fdvunJ

He also has a few DVDs available. You can get his Ivory Connection DVD that has his dice routine. And he also has a couple of other DVDs called the Works. Each one is available for $25. He will cover shipping in the United States, but may need to make adjustments for those who want to purchase it from outside the US.

Send an email to oradeerocks@gmail.com

I appreciate all of you supporting our LIVE lectures!

If you haven't registered for Steven'l Youell lecture, please take a moment to do so now.

Thanks!

Rudy

I enjoyed watching the video of Steve's lecture. Steve is a fine technician, an excellent magician and a great guy. Thanks Rudy for making it possible.

For people curious about the switch that Steve explains in details at the 34' mark: it's a Marlo technical variation of a switch described in Le Temps Four Aces effect, in Expert Card Technique, which itself is a handling of the Talazac switch.

Marlo's technique (2nd method) can be found in The New Tops, Vol. 5 No. 2 magazine or in M.I.N.T. by Ed Marlo Vol 1 book.
