WOW. I am now fully caught up on Switchcraft and it's wonderful (VERY generous) supplements. This work has ABSOLUTELY expanded my vocabulary on b***et work.

Some highlights for me:

*Elliot's wonderful thoughts on Mu**ple O**s on p.83 of V34 A plus thinking IMHO.
*The Pusillanimous B***et Read is worth the price of the book alone for me. (I performed this the other night, and it KILLED.)
*All the work on Acidus Novus contained in Switchcraft really excited me
*I love the Hannukah friendly routines in the holiday specials (My Bubbie is going to KVEL over these.)

I would keep going but I want to keep some of the gems hidden for those who are still on the fence. (Is ANYONE still on the fence about Switchcraft?)

I thank Elliot Bressler deeply for these generous supplements, and his thorough sourcing of material. Switchcraft appeals to me as a fantastic springboard into the many avenues of b***et and switch work.


Cheers,
Cooper


Agree. Pusillanimous BR is simply brilliant and flexible.

May you live in interesting times.

This has become my baseline approach to multiple outs. So clever.

Has anyone experimented utilising the techniques on Switchcraft for non-billet stuffs? I have tweaked the handling for Mike Rose's The Grail with EB Cl** S****h for normal playing card, eliminating the gimmick.

Thank you, Sam, pavelrodzevich, T.G Jones, sjrw, Cooper, ko_brian, Pawel. Alex, and Marc O!

I really appreciate your posts.

(Your posts let people know that Switchcraft exists. Its the only way I ever sell anything. To me, one post is worth more that 1,000 PMs and emails.)

I put together a quick supplement for Volume Two of the Impromptu Mental Effects series. There are only two impromptu tricks within but they are very good ones.

I have many additional volumes of Impromptu Mental Effects in the works, with lots of my own material plus pending contributions from top mentalists around the world. I am considering also including classic impromptu material, but am undecided on that.

Anyways, the next supplement is done. I just need to edit and work on the cover image and tweak the mailing list a little to get even better delivery results.

Thanks again,

Elliott


PS. Sam, I've used the various techniques with business cards, envelopes, playing cards, esp cards, index cards, paper currency, post-its, paper, wedding cards, newspaper, etc.

I'm still amazed you put more stuff... I'd suggest adding a paypal donation button whenever you send out supplements, so those who benefit from it will donate whatever they please.

Again, thank you so much.

My pleasure.

Editing and cover image are done.

Tomorrow night, I plan to work with the mailing list a little to improve delivery results.

It finally happened. There now exists two Very Effective pieces of mentalism using the cups and balls. Sort of. You'll see.

One uses three humans in the way that one would use three loads in two cups. The other takes an Al Koran idea and goes a little crazy with it. And each is impromptu; the second one a little less than the first. On the other hand, I surprised myself by having the items needed - right next to my desk.

These two Very Effective pieces of mentalism are the newest addition to Switchcraft, the never-ending, always-growing masterpiece of billets, switches, and general tomfoolery and mentalism from our own Elliott. You probably guessed that, because this is his thread. What you didn't know was that the second routine (my favorite of the two) is by Elliott hisself. The first one is by one of those mysterious behind-the-scenes guys, who uses a pseudonym, so I've forgotten who he is.

Switchcraft is now up to 767 pages. If you haven't bought it yet - for goodness' sake, what are you waiting for?

Folks, Switchcraft is like Wal-Mart stock, you always wish you'd bought it earlier. Buy it now. You will benefit from your purchase immediately AND you will benefit from Elliott's on-going generosity after your purchase. This a true no-brainer. Buy it.

Received V35. The best deal in magic I have ever came across. So much information, so many good ideas. Thank you so much for all of this Elliot.

Switchcraft is, quite simply, a master course in mentalism. The amount of value, staggering. Thank you, Elliott!

Watching and waiting.

Switchcraft is a real treasure.


7 years later (after the above post), it continues to inspire and beckon to the imagination and emotional anticipation of performing and creating new applications for ever evolving situations. Thank you again, Elliott ! Good hearing from you too !

I would have been satisfied getting 10% of Switchcraftv35 for that amount of money and I would say it's a great deal, now, I say it's not a great deal... It's the best bargain you can find on mentalism.

Thank you Elliot!

Thank a lot Elliott,
I'm amazed at your excellent material and generosity.

To this day Switchcraft is my best magic purchase ever, and I always wait eagerly for new supplements.

I think Switchcraft is already a milestone in magic literature and that it will be considered for decades as one of the best works.
Really a must have!

I unreservedly suggest everyone who doesn't already have it, to buy a copy of your monumental e-book...!

The Detective Potatoe Head routine will definitely go in my "impromptu repertoire": fun, entertaining, simple and yet effective. And there is a LOT of variations and ideas around the principle. Really inspiring, thanks again Elliott Smile
