THE OLOF EXPERIENCE

If you liked OLOF with playing cards, you'll go crazy for the OLOF BOOK-TEST, OLOF Living & Dead, OLOF Future Trend.

That's right! 4 ungimmicked OLOF experiments at your fingertips (and brains!)



NAILED THOUGHT

Imagine being able to perform the classic "behind participant's back magazine test" where participant and whole audience can see the page chosen freely and void of any pre-made mark! And yet... You will now which word your participant will randomly circle or cross out!

Yes - Paolo knows how to play DIRTILY CLEAN!

And he will show you... For a price!



TRIPLE INFLUENCE

A one ahead that isn't! You go first without any apparent clue! How that could be? Find it out!

Tons of applications to other routines!



The 3DL SWINDLE

A three-dimensional layer which will improve ANY AND ALL ungimmicked booktests!



T.O.S.S.

A new idea on the TOD principle (no playing cards, colors, numbers...)

Please - Note this is a macro-effect!

You will use three people to get in sync with the WHOLE audience (and with you) in the first minutes of your show! A great way to get in harmony and in rapport with your audience in a simple way, right off the start.



THE FLYTRAP REVEALED

Read Cavalli's own routines (Previously Undisclosed) for this great, little gimmick.



THE X-RAYS NOTEPAD CONCEPT

At last! This has been asked for many, many times...

3 utility gimmicks to transform almost any pad (any envelope, any business card, etc.) into an impression device.

John Riggs, the King of Imp Devices, said this is REAL and diabolical stuff!



And much more...

5 other routines plus some essays ...

The other routines are left a SURPRISE for the time being, but - don't worry - they will be revealed in due time when the book will be ready to go!

Nice, sounds like there'll be some fantastic material, 'Triple Influence' and "Nailed Thought' being especially intriguing... The 3DL Swindle sounds very interesting also, especially seeing as impromptu is the only way to go for me as far as booktests are concerned.

The X-RAYS Notepad concepts are absolutely brilliant, seriously so, for me nothing else comes close.

Cool, looking forward to hearing more on these.

Y2john I'm surprised you know detail of xrays pad: Cavalli shared that with you ?? if so lucky you

GO PAOLO!!!

Anything by Cavalli is GOLD. 'Of Genius & Madness' is the perfect title :) and both describe LOTH quite well!

Thanks guys.

Not sure about all of the routines to be included because I mailed to Banachek offering him one of them
to include in his PS3 book (if it's not too late!)

Then again he could answer me that what I offer him is crap.

In that case... I will have to sell that to you... ;)

If it's crap I'm not spending any more than $50 on it.

Hey Paolo,

Can you give a more accurate description of how your "Nailed Thought" effect goes?Other than the no pre-made circle, what are the other differences to Osterlinds magazine test?

p.s I looooooooooove crap!! Eat, drink, talk it all day!

Let me rephrase your question, if you will.

What are the differences with other Magazine Tests?

I say that only because the first Magazine Test I recall to have read was Tom Sellers.

And maybe other people created that concept of "behind the back + f*k* pen" time before. I don't know.

That one was however my first exposure to that test (and I talk way back in time here).

What Osterlind did was to make some changes / add some subtleties he came up with - for that plot.

And let me state here and now that I like very much his thoughts on that. But that's my opinion.

This is yet a different method to get to the same old result.

In terms of performance it's very easy, and from audience point of view is definitely very, very clean (but that's because, as the ad says, it's dirty to the point it looks clean!)

You need one magazine, one writing instrument, and one expensive hi-tech gimmick that you only find in Russia. That's all you need it. Simple enough?






I was just joking about the hi-tech gimmick. You don't require any.

Theres a page force ??
Message: Posted by: Lord Of The Horses (Dec 24, 2008 04:09PM)
Do you mean - The page need to be forced?

My answer is NO!

You can pretty use any page although I would skip some pages for a peculiar reason which will become apparent to you when you know the method. But, no forcing of a page!
Message: Posted by: kambiz (Dec 24, 2008 05:40PM)
Sounds awesome Paolo, look forward to the pending release?? Still a teeny wee bit edgy about your comment "its dirty to the point it looks clean"....seriously how clean is it? I guess the only non-clean part of Osterlinds method was the page force, so with no page force in your method, it must be super clean right? Just a yes or no answer is fine for this question, not fisshing for methods....will very likely purchase your product :)

Kambiz,

You are asking the seller if his product is any good... ;)

What could I say other than you could use a BORROWED magazine on the spot? (Not recommended but you can do it!)
Message: Posted by: Nicolino (Jan 9, 2009 11:17AM)
That book was written for me!
I can feel it...! :)
Will you again publish it as ebook or in a printed edition?

Can't wait, please keep us posted!

When you are ready for sell, keep us informed asap.
x-ray is promoted here since 2 years. I am personally waiting for x-ray since December 07.
when will it come, this year?

I estimate that it will be worth to wait therefore.

I like this trend of mentalists releasing stuff for people like me who like to create mystery's off the stage as well as on the stage. Good luck with this release.

I have to say something, but please don't repeat it to anyone !
It's just for you eyes !
Paolo told me his books will be release when it will be ready.
He told me he has a very good idea/routine about causing frustation, but I think it's not possible to create a such effect.
Anyway wait and see.

Paolo is super busy performing and involved in about 200 separate projects all at one time. All I can say is the wait will be worth it for this one.

I won't repeat it to anyone. However you have just posted this in an area that could be googled.

So please no more [b]HYPE[/b]

This is getting obsesive.
Message: Posted by: PsiDroid (Jan 26, 2010 10:55AM)
Agreed with edh

stop hyping cavalli stuff until he will tell us he is ready to sell

you are doing no good to him by keeping this up no matter how good your intentions are:
