I was just practicing some basic slights, trying to get them down pat. Everything is from Born To Perform except for the DL. Actually...I don't even know *what* the DL is called, I learned it from a magician when I went to Europe this summer, but he didn't put a name to it.

Lots or work yet to do, but they're getting there :)

Trestkon,
Nice job. Your hands look very relaxed and comfortable with the cards.

(Great find on the Dream Police by Cheap Trick. That brings me back to 1980)

Nice. Keep at it. The more you learn, the more you want to know.

Best,
Monte

Haha, don't I know it!

I'm also starting to realize that I tend to forget exactly how much work went into some of the things that I take for granted, and how differently laymen see things. I showed the video to a friend and the thing that stuck out in his mind was the one handed fan :P
