MyMagic eNewsletter #829
April 25, 2020
FIRST: I am continuing to ship your orders on a daily basis. Thank you for your continued support.
Well, my new Bag Of Trix Zoom Lecture Tour is in full swing. An average day has me traveling from the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, library for the lecture and back to the bedroom.
Thanx to all of you, I have been busy appearing at magic clubs worldwide. What I didn’t consider is that most of you are in different time zones and that enables me to do more than one lecture per day. Is a matter of fact for the next week I will be doing one or two every day. Are they profitable? Not yet. Are they worthwhile? Yes, since their main purpose is to increase my mailing list and that seems to be happening.
I put together a new lecture just for this and it is running around an hour, so far everyone seems to be enjoying the fun and the magic, followed by a Q&A.
Doing them turns out to be more tiring than their live counterparts that last 2-3 times longer, which I did not expect. For many reasons, I get completely burnt out after each one and can’t do much else productive that day. It is why you did not see a midweek newsletter this week or any new downloads.
It reminds me of what Harry Anderson used to constantly tell me, “Be careful what you wish for, you might actually get it.”
So, if your magic club or group is currently having their meetings online and if you think they would be interested in a mini-lecture please have them contact me. I am doing these for free and they are full of new and older routines and ideas.
Was very sad to hear of the passing of Norm Nielsen a few days ago. Norm was one of the nicest people I knew. A real gentleman on and off stage. He also performed one of the most beautiful and skillful acts in magic… a true piece of art.
A Fan Of Cards:
Rich Micucci has been working on making this new lapel pin to add to his line. It uses a 75+ year old die he found of a hand fanning a bunch of cards.
He made it out of copper, plated in nickel, two-color enamel for the pips and a deluxe locking back. (It might even look good on PJs… just a joke).

While picking up these pins I was also able to get a few more of his Zodiac Coin routine that I really like.

Lately my eBay store has been outperforming my magic site so I added more collectible decks of cards to my eBay auctions which will expire on Sunday evening.
There is a total of 25 items at auction and more than 200 items in my eBay store.
A direct link to the auction items is: HERE

Warehouse Finds, Limited Quantities & Great Prices:
This is part of a large Joker Magic inventory I purchased recently. Many of these items are no longer being manufactured and the ones that are will not be restocked. Once they are gone… they are gone!

This routine has often been referred to as one of the best packet tricks. It has more visual impossibilities than most in its genre.
You cleanly show four queens, explaining that one of them is very special. The first three Queens that are selected are shown to have different colored backs.
The last Queen is cleanly shown to have a blue back as you explain it too is special. The cards are shown again and now they all have red backs except for the last Queen.
As a finale the four Queens are shown to have four different back designs and colors and they can even be handed for examination.
|CATCH ME & WIN|

Gene Maze’s fantastic chain routine combines the Fast & Loose or Endless Chain routines with the classic Three Card Monte and Three Shell Game scams. When the routine was originally published many top pros built their own sets and put it into their shows.
The object is for the spectator to pick the peg that catches. No matter how hard they try they can’t find it. Even though you keep making it easier and giving them tips, they always fail. Of course, the secret lies in the fact that you have total control of whether the spectator wins or loses.
|RAINBOW CARD ROUTINES|
MORE INFO & BUY: HERE
Higar’s Rainbow Phantom Cards are among the most ingenious technologies that has been applied to magic. I have been performing with them for years and on this video tutorial I will teach my three favorite routines. These are routines that I use. Two of them are close-up routines and one is used when I am performing formal close-up or stand-up.
Taught are Meir Yedid’s Rainbow Cut Card Routine, Rainbow Doctor Who Routine, Rainbow Wonder Mirror Routine, and Trevor Lewis’ Swivel Cut Swindle.
The spectator’s face is always framed with the reveal and saved on their phone. And most importantly every time they look at the picture, they will be reminded of you and your performance.
|SIX TO ONE DICE|
MORE INFO & BUY: HERE
This is a visual and impromptu routine using any borrowed dice. It is based on Les Scheyer’s “A Dice Interlude” but uses a slightly simpler method and an additional backward phase.
You begin by explaining that the best way to tell if a set of dice are real and not tampered with is to add up the opposite sides of the dice to make sure that they all total to seven.
You then explain that even using real dice a sleight of hand artist can make you see any number they like. You demonstrate this by showing that the dice have one, two, three, four, five, and six on opposite sides. To further prove your point, you go backwards by showing 6-5-4-3-2-1 on opposite sides instead of the known numbers.
