"X" said, 

Pialli, 

I agree with a lot of what you think about being a magician/performer vs being a storyteller that does lesser magic, appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and stay and discuss them 

you had said that it takes years for effects to be developed and evolve before it gets in your show-rotation, what are some routines you are working on now to hopefully add to your rotation, and are there any "new" or effects (books, DVDs, Tricks) that have been released the last couple of years that you plan on developing to add?

also, are there any effects that you know you will never add to your rotation but still love them?

Niltze Tialli Pialli,
 
¿Quen motaca? 

I am working on a Miser's Dream, The Chinese Sticks, a new Cups and Balls routine, Okito Coin Box, and a comedy Spiritualism Routine with a Kellar Rope Tie. Also a question answering act with the Sphere of Destiny. 

If I love something, it will find a way into the act. I don't really have any effects that I won't put into the show.

I for one enjoyed reading that lengthy but intriguing dissertation. Thank you for that.

"Hey Pop, always good to hear about what you're doing. Have to be a little selfish and wish you were still in Knoxville. Is there any way to get your Magnetized Water routine.

I have never thought of putting the water routine out for the fraternity. It is so Pop Haydn centric, and so complicated to create, and so difficult to transport, I can't imagine many would want to do it. It sure would be a bit difficult to explain.

I find it difficult to respond to your posts because I read them, then I re-read them, then I read them again, and again, and again and I still feel like I'm not ready to say I've mined all of the gold out of them. I suppose this is because as one learns and accumulates new experiences different parts of what you are writing will suddenly take on greater clarification and meaning when there is a synchronicity between experience and theoretical knowledge and the internalization of the understanding of that knowledge occurs. Just let me say that I am, for one, extremely grateful for all of the time and effort you have been so generously giving in answering my question.

All the best,
Sam

Lovely stuff, Pop!  You are a true entertainer and I could watch those performances again and again.  

They're all great, but to me your Full Card Routine is awe-inspiring!

Hello Pop,

I am a fan of your 6 Card Trick, and pretty much your version alone. The way you present it seems to fit so comfortably with Pop's persona. I've been wondering if you did the 6 Card Trick as Whit? If so, did you present it differently? I've never seen you perform as anything but Pop, but I imagine "Whit" was much different on stage and can't imagine him doing it the same way. I am interested in how your thinking may have changed about the 6 card repeat over time.

Thanks so much for that great line of thought Pop,

Applying it to my much more limited experience it's prompted me to think about how I came to my own magic character and why.

When I started out the advice I kept seeing was to be yourself, but magical, maybe with extra zest etc.

But if I did that I was stuck with being someone who questions things, especially if they don't seem right or unlikely. I would be my own heckler almost!
My natural self just seemed at odds with what I thought a magician should be. In the end, it was an effect I was rehearsing that brought me to where I am.

I was playing around with doing a routine as a television infomercial, as if I was selling the props as a product.
I was liking it but somehow I morphed into a kind of goofy character and moved in another direction entirely. I think Trailer park trash would be the only American term I know that might fit this character but in Australia, they are known as bogans. The movie character Joe Dirt is a good reference. He's friendly and fun-loving but pretty stupid, which is the part I liked the most, lulling the audience into thinking that he's not up to much and then knocking them dead with the magic. This really set me free with my development. I was no longer tied to my own cynical view of believing very little without proof and felt so less worried about justifying how anything worked. From this I've developed a backdrop to his world and in my one man show he talks about his life, family and friends all of which moves the show forward and prompts each magic routine. I even threw in a couple of songs that work for him.

I've realised since that you could be a magician that doesn't believe in real magic. I think that is what Penn & Teller's characters are. I've toyed with patter that is all about how impossible it all is and how I don't believe any of it. Maybe I'll try that too one day.

Seeing your character on youtube etc has helped so much and I didn't realise how much until I read the above. Thank you for that.

Hopefully I will get to get out there and get more performance experience soon!

I was wondering if you try to consciously try to make to the character of Pop likable, or does the that just come naturally from you and how to express yourself? 

Thanks,
Sam

Thanks for your questions.

That backyard performing environment brings back a lot of memories of me in my 20's.

I did a lot of those...
