I just came across this... intriguing:

http://www.ientertainer.net/store/docc-hilford/product/alias

From the description it looks like a great idea... and it's from Docc Hilford. But this:

"The method is unlike anything tried before."

It's too vague. I mean, from the description I can imagine some ways that could REALLY disappoint me... and for this price, I really need more info.

Can somebody say something about it?

I don't know about this, but I've bought a few booklet by him in the past and I've always been very disappointed. It never worth the asking price.

Sadly, I would like to buy some things from Docc, but the Seance package is not finished, yet he is able to put out 2-3 other releases. So I don't feel right giving him more money.

Hey guys,

While I don't own this, I do want to just briefly enter the conversation and just say that the best material I do is inspired by Docc.

He's really a class act of a person, one of my true mentors and constantly working.

Have some faith in him...I mean for god sake he's 6' 7" devil look alike and a genuinely sweet family man!

XX,
-Jacob

I've read the booklets a long time ago, maybe too soon. I need to read them again.

I asked about this down stairs and got no reply's. Apparently not many have bought it. It sounds absolutely amazing, as does all of Docc's written adds. I'm sure in his hands it does come across as written. But the trouble of parting with that sort of cash for a download is..... you're ***ed if you do, as not all of Docc's stuff can be pulled off with as much amazement by us mere mortals..........and ***ed if you don't, because he does release some pure gems.
If any mere mortals have broken down and bought this, would luv to hear how it plays for them.

I've purchased a few of Docc's pricier items, and never used them (as presented).
He really does seem to spark the creative fires though.
But, I do us some of his stuff regularly.
Ironically, most of it is the cheaper, one effect download, releases.
I love Docc. He could turn a Hotrod effect, into an (entertaining) evening show.

Seems like nobody took the plunge with this one. I'm still curious, but I do think it's too little information to make an informed decision. Plus, Docc let me down recently with a rip off. If someone purchased this please, give us some light.

It sounds like a great idea for a routine, but like much of the stuff on his site, it's really hard to tell what you're getting. And he has had a bit of a penchant for hyperbole in the past.

Although it does say it's a method not every tried before (not even sure what that means...) it could be accomplished as follows:

It says the slips are handed at random to the mentalist.

I'm not saying this is what it is, but with standard blindfold techniques, AN or similar, and some DR for the 'questions' I think this could be accomplished as written.

Can`t find a review anywhere. Docc really has the power to make his Ads very very amazing. Since I had some remorse in the past, I really need reviews to validate the ads.

Basically you can do this with a one ahead principle, a fake blindlold and marked billets. The price is crazy! Good luck selling it.

I'd like to purchase it although I am waiting for him to finish the seance package I have already purchased. I own quite a few of Docc's pieces and consider his thinking to be top-shelf. But I cannot in good faith continue to purchase from him until he makes good with his promises to fulfill the last purchase, the seance pro package.

His ads are better than his products. A lot of times the material is not original and it is priced very high. You want miracles that no one else is doing? Reread The Jinx.

My thoughts and feelings exactly! that's why I haven't bought anything new either!
