My Unexpected Methods lecture was received much better than I expected. At last count it had more than 2,300 views and lots of compliments. I am glad many of you enjoyed the inside look of how my brain works.

Last night the IBM JAM held a live Season Finale. It ran around three hours and featured many of my friends whose homes we got to visit. I appeared at around 1:17:30. I taught a trick that I think your will like. Take a look: HERE
In the December 19 newsletter (HERE) I introduced you to Nick Diffatte’s Card Peggers. Many purchased it on my recommendation and were impressed by the new and easy way of marking the cards that was explained on the trailer (HERE).
I wanted to add a few more tips and secrets that might interest you.
First, I was given permission to tip the adhesive that card cheaters use to attach the pegs. I don’t believe this information has been previously shared to the magic community.
Of course, you can use any kind of glue, wax or tape but the secret glue is the medical grade adhesive called: “Pros-Aide ‘The Original’ Adhesive,” that is available online. The easiest way to apply it, is using a drop, on the tip of a paperclip and put half a drop on each of the two surfaces before attaching them (similar to the application of rubber cement).
In the original newsletter and the trailer, I focused on its use with playing cards. But if you want to fry some of your mentalist friends apply the blisters to postcards or photographs. By strategically placing the bumps in different locations and in different quantities and configurations you can identify them by touch alone while the pictures are face down or behind your back!
Which brings me to the last tip which I am hesitant to give away. You can also use the pegs to mark envelopes. And a perfect envelope application is with the trick called Precise Revelation that was taught on the instructional video for my ESP Feeler Cards (HERE). These will allow you to do that same routine using any envelopes with anything you like inside them. I sold a ton of the Feeler Cards, so I am sure that many of you have already smiled and are considering the new combination.

Funny thing about the ESP Feeler Cards is that most of the responses I got from customers who loved them is that they fooled their wives, girlfriends, kids, and grandkids which I guess are their Beta testers, and currently, their only live audience.

I hope you have a happy New Year and next year will slowly shape up to be wonderful.
Stay safe, Meir
PS: I just realized that I did 40 lectures in 2020. All virtual but still, the most I ever did in one year! Also interesting is that I did four completely different lectures in the last 14 months! (My Thumb Drive Lecture, Gene Maze Tribute Lecture, Bag Of Trix Lecture, and Unexpected Methods Lecture). Anyone see all four?

This is an ideal stand-up routine with intrinsic situational comedy. Even if you are not a comedian the situational comedy that is built into the routine will always get you laughs.
