My show at the Mohegan Sun Casino this weekend went well. Was very happy. In putting the show together, I realized that one of my favorite and original bits is no longer useable because of my new haircut. So, I will eventually write it up here and explain how to build the simple prop so anyone with a receding hairline can get a free routine with lots of laughs.
I am about to introduce you to a trick that fooled me. My friend in India sent me a demo of it a few months ago. I watched it a few times and could not figure out how it worked. I even thought he was using trick photography and messing with me. I even showed it to some friends, and they had no clue. Watch the trailer: HERE
It uses a very simple method, and it can be done both live and on video. Unfortunately, once you find out the secret you will no longer be fooled by it. Its only drawback is the sound it makes during the change.
►Flash Card Prediction:
This is a very visual revelation of a selected card.
You place a prediction envelope in full view, before having a card selected. After the selection process you open the envelope and show a framed postcard that says, “This Is Your Card.”
In a blink of an eye the postcard visually changes into the selected card and both the frame and card can be shown on both sides.

Larry Becker was one of the most influential mentalists in the last half of the 1900s. He was able to create many new premises, situations, and presentations that made mentalism and mental magic more engaging and interesting to a modern audience. His books and ideas inspired a generation of mentalists.
Larry and I were good friends, we traveled together, performed together, joked around and even did magic and mentalism for each other. When I was purchasing the rights to parts of the A-1 Magical Media library Larry’s videos were near the top of my list. Today I am releasing the first of his two videos as a download, and you can have it at a low introductory price.
Larry Becker is an internationally acclaimed mentalist, author and inventor.
On this video you will witness a live show where Larry performs some of his most jaw-dropping mental magic, highlighted with a new version of his reputation making Russian Roulette. You will then be taught the routines that have gained him worldwide acclaim.
Routines performed and explained: Tri-Coinetic, Visual Aid, Phantasm Supreme, Here, There & Everywhere, Some Total-Stage, and Russian Roulette (Performance only).

This is a clever book test using ordinary books. The books that are used for this routine are the widely popular and best-selling Twilight Saga Series by Stephenie Meyer which consists of four books. The books are Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. All four of which were also made into movies.
The basic routine is having a book selected, a spectator names any page, turns to it and begins reading it. You have them concentrate on the first line of text, and begin describing what you envision them reading, you proceed by naming or spelling a significant word on that line that they were supposedly thinking of.
