So this magician left his knock-off origami and knock-off slicer illusion in the same storage area, not realizing that one was male and one was female. One of the knock-offs got knocked-up and the resulting progeny can be seen about 15 minutes into this video.

Thank you for the time mark. There isn't a chance on this planet that I could sit through that whole video. I couldn't even make it a minute.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH OMFG!!!!

At about 1:30.00 into this abortion of a performance the illdouchionist places the form for the asrah backwards. She is lying head left and feet right.....but after she is covered she is feet left and head right!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA How did he get her to switch places so fast??? That was amazing!!!

I think the illusion you were talking about in the original post occurs at the 5 minute mark and not the 15 minute mark. I would hate for someone to have to sit through an additional 10 minutes if they don't have to.

Yes its a horrible knock off but I think he was trying to build Rand Woodbury's Pandora's Box.

Wait, so this ENTIRE performance was bad music and bad dancing, with NO talking whatsoever, along with presumptuous grotesque posturing, and it was not a good performance all around.

And.... Someone tell me that I'm wrong when I say that illusions have far too many people doing this bad music and bad dancing thing?

Perhaps they should have put more effort into the illusions and less into the singing and dancing?

Someone tell me I'm wrong, I dare you.

You're wrong.





Just kidding! That music and dancing was hideous, as was the lack of patter. Between that and the mistakes mentioned (I didn't bother watching much more than what was pointed out here) the performance was a travesty.

Is it just me or is he trying to look like Dave Womach aka David Davinci from when he was in Ringlings production of Illucination???

The real trick is how he squeezed into those pants.

It's real easy if your made like a Ken doll. No issues if you don't have the cups and balls to get in the way.

"ILLDHOUCHIONIST" just made my freakin' day. I haven't even watched the video. I'm just loving that I now have a new word!

I invented a nested stacking box type effect back in the 90's. I built a proto type and then lost and forgot all about it. It was a verticle illusion.

I'm glad I watched this, because now it brought back my thoughts on that illusion that I had forgotten about.

I think that the illusion would have been pretty good if it would have been built by a top builder.
Although it is a spin off of two other illusions...

I would still stay it is Original. There are other illusion that have that load.
Topsy Turvy Illusion (I just think that he crossed the line by putting the swords thru.)

other than that.. I think it was fast and to the point.

I know that everyone is down on the magician... I'm just talking about that illusion.

Thanks for sharing the video.
I'm just glad that it reminded me of an old effect that I invented and forgot about.

I've slaughtered some tricks in my time......Heaven knows I have!! Man......some of that was painful, though. I did like some of the music, though.....and I liked the doves to dog......that was good.

I have to say I enjoyed this...at 35 minutes in one of the magicians falls up the stairs. About ten minutes after that he is doing his Meta box...throws a sword up in the air (Jonathan Pendragon style) and forgot to read the swords are dangerous and catches the blade in his hand instead of the handle. The last magician does a wonderful (his take) on what I think is his version of Cubezag, but his assistant goes in pregnant and comes out with a baby...wow this video has so many wonderful moments. This is coming from someone that put a knife through his hand performing live. Well at least their show didn't end with an ambulance ride.

I just want to get a suit like he had on in the beginning. The baby thing was...WHAT??? Where did that fit in. I thought she was going to take off the coat just before she got in and...well I don't really know what I thought. I don't dance at all but I think maybe even I could do a little better. The music was ok in some areas. This was a hour and a half of pantomime. It made it just drag on and on and on and on, well you get the idea. Just my two cents.

I think I need some Bourbon. Or cheap hooch...anything.
Message: Posted by: Dougini (Jan 31, 2013 09:27AM)
You can watch the whole thing if you smoke a doob'. Bourbon or Scotch? I'd just pass out. Ya know, bad as it is, it is refreshing to see a pretty lady doing magic. There are just not enough lady performers in my opinion. I wonder who the next lady "Copperfield" will be? We need one BADLY. I am sick of Blaine and Criss Angel. Just sayin'...
