Has anyone performed Half Moon Voodoo? I've been shocked at the reactions it gets. It's done with cards, but this is no card trick. The method to force/load is pure genius.

This is a powerful dvdv set. It really makes you think about your magic.

I've played with a lot of things on the set, but really love:

- naked strange
- invisible palm
- shuffling lesson
- stapled warp

Extraordinary proof is probably my favorite, and one I perform all the time.

RE: the TA pen, I spent an afternoon making one up, but never felt comfortable with the action of the gimmick. Even after fiddling and practicing it just never felt smooth.

Paul Harris is a great Magician but the set is $300. Is it really worth it?

I got mine as a gift, but I would have been very pleased if I had paid for it. I finally got around to setting up Tensegrity, which I posted about in the TA thread.

There are very strong pieces on the set.Things you'll actually do instead of "oh, that's so cool" and never do it.

At the time I bought this set... I was pretty green magically.
I HATED the Easter Eggs. I didn't want to have to find **** I paid for... I still hate it.
Loved some of the effects, but have to be honest, probably didn't spend as much time in this set as I would have if I didn't have to play games to find my way around the set... I mean REALLY?! Got to search for material I paid good money for.
****ed me off.
It is now eight years later and will look back into this.

Quite a unique DVD released back in the days. Got mine directly from Paul Harris and they even have a forum for effect discussion but I totaly forgot the web site... not much user really discuss over the years too...

As for Easter eggs, well it's a bonus and just a search on Google you will find all Easter Eggs direction so it really depends if you must every ounzes out the set. Franly even without Easter eggs the set still stood for test of time. Without name out any particular, some Asia TV show at those days a super famous magician perform on average an effect out of the DVD set once per week for almost a year (well of course just a wild estimate)

So as you can see effects in the set are really practical.

Indeed, I don't have the time to spend on the set enough as usual. But it always on my study room I can really reach every day. Still the wooden box puzzle lock (sometimes locked even I already unlock it) was one of the very special thing upon Magic Instructional DVD era.

Those were good old days.

This is a great DVD set.

One of the Easter Eggs was super useful to me. I could never understand the written instructions for Conjunction (by Joshua Quinn) until I found the video hidden away on these DVDs teaching it. I love that trick!

You can't really go wrong with anything by Paul Harris. The most interesting effects to me were Cheng's Change and Cheng's Riser. Pure sleight of hand card magic.
Music is meaningless if it cannot be FELT be cannot it if meaningless is magic.

Some guy here on the Café posted a complete run down of the Easter Eggs and where they can be found. It was a nicely done PDF, but I don't know who it was.

According to the Paul Harris Presents website it was Matt La Vore. Ezekiel Jump did the PDF artwork.
