[/quote] I'm wondering about that... I don't have the trick, FYI. But if you do this and people want to inspect your shoes, are you presenting it wrong?? I'm imagining someone doing tricks for a group, then bending over and untying their shoe lace (unprofessional?) and standing up & saying "Watch!" in their best David Blainey voice, then it reties. Then everyone gasps, says "Lemme see your shoe!" and the magician unties it, takes it off, and hands it to them to check out. He stands there on one foot waiting to get his shoe back. WTF?! Should it not be more like: you're doing tricks and your shoe is already untied, in between tricks you look down, snap your finger, and everyone sees your shoe lace tie itself, then you delve back into the tricks at hand? Or is that asking too much? ;P ;P [/quote] Diavo, It doesn't work like that. You start out with the shoe untied. I do this all the time. Sometimes even during a (smaller) stand up show. I'll start my show then notice that it is untied. I'll usually ask the audience, "How do you tie your shoe? Double loops, double knots" etc. I then proceed to show them just how I do it. It ALWAYS gets a BIG reaction. I've only had one person actually touch my shoe, trying to figure it out. This isn't something you'll do at every table or even every gig but it is a GREAT effect to have to be able to do for that "Special" occasion when you really want to hit them between the eyes (not with the laces of course). I just wished they made one for the left shoe. ;) JIM [/quote]
