...I'm sensing that my thoughts didn't get through. Maybe because there's no 'on-line' icon visible. ;)

Nevertheless, 'Theater of The Mind' is the direction you need to follow...
Good luck!

A decent selection I would personally recommend to you would be:

Mental Miracles - Bob Cassidy. Available commercially. This was the first DVD that I bought and the routines he does are fairly easy to do, the trick being to adapt the effect to your performance style. His Name/Place Routine (Done with a CT rather than a BS works better IMO.)and Chronologue are two of the better effects.

I would also recommend either DVD set that Richard Osterland produced. For entry level into the craft I'd possible recommend his Modern Mental Miracles set in which he does several Annemann effects as well as some others.Again the materials at hand to perform the effects are easily accessible.

As far as books, Maven, Cassidy, Earle are three people I would put as a foundation to the craft.

Hope this helps.

Don't forget to get Karl Fulves' 'Self Workng Mentalism' book...it's the cheapest of almost all the Mentlism books (under $10), easy to plow thru, and you might pick up a few effects that become your favorites.
