Some TV news updates and two new items. First a very interesting Monte routine using match boxes and dice with an unexpected ending that will completely surprise you.
I was also able to find a small stash of Glorpys that I can sell very inexpensively. Probably for less than the ungimmicked handkerchief would cost. If you are not familiar with Glorpy I did a trailer a while ago: HERE
MOI is the acronym used internally for the Masters Of Illusion TV Series. I mentioned earlier that I will appear in three upcoming episodes, and the first one will air on Saturday June 10 at 8pm, New York time, and will later be available on their streaming platforms.
Until then you can watch the commercial that started airing: HERE
This starts out as a shell game routine using three matchboxes and a die. It quickly turns into a Cups and Balls type of routine with some impossible appearances, vanishes, and penetrations. It ends with a series of kicker endings with the production of up to nine dice.

Gorpy: The Gerkulating Ghost released by Madblood Creations has become a classic of magic. Many variants have been released since then like the popular Haunted Hank.
This version is based on the original and uses specially made and gimmicked pattern handkerchiefs as pictured. Available in six colors.
The basic routine involves you folding the handkerchief into quarters and in a ghostly manner the center of the silk begins to move and rise on your command.

►OUR LATEST RELEASE:
Routines with impossible objects as their surprise ending always over-perform. This is one of Michael Rubinstein’s favorites.
The basic routine features you handing two coins to your friends for examination (a Quarter and a Penny) as you explain the different metals they are made of.
You then place the Penny on top of the Quarter and after a little squeeze the penny sinks into the quarter and is fused inside. The odd new coin can then be examined.
You pick up the coin, give it a little shake and the penny falls out leaving everything examinable and ordinary.
