Hello all. Wanted to let you know I've started a YouTube Channel dedicated to coin magic.
coinspiracy.org should fwd to the channel, or just search YouTube for Coin Magic Underground.
There are 7 vids currently up, 6 more on my computer ready to go, and plans for more on the horizon. These vids feature me, but am currently harassing several friends into letting me shoot them as well.
Am particularly proud of the one called "Epic Coin Magic - Coins in Hat / Wild Coin" which features several exotic/original moves and an interesting twist.
Hope you enjoy them and consider subscribing. Am looking forward to any encouragement and constructive criticism.

Thanks, Dick. Dust off those metal disks and bust a knuckle!

Hey all, I just posted a fun handling of The Gadabout Coins. I always liked classic version except you need a surface and it's often presented as a guessing game- wherein the spectator is usually wrong..
So here's a sans-table version wherein the performer comes off as the one have a difficult time..

Thanks Zach! Got it at a magic shop I was working at in the 90s. Can't remember what it was called, maybe someone else does(?) The presentation it came with was sort of a sucker routine where you come conspicuously close to exposing a C/S coin and then say "wouldn't it be cool if I could change it into a coin that's silver on one side and copper on the other?" yuck yuck.. Sometimes I do it that way for magicians. Thanks so much for watching.

Since I couldn't see it clearly in the video - they were smaller washers that appeared, rather than coins?

Message: Posted by: tonsofquestions (Aug 6, 2016 02:30PM)
A nice routine!

Two comments:
I like the story of the patter, but I think it needs to be tightened up, it was a bit awkward at times.
There was a strange view of the hidden coin at 0:14 - possibly because of the angle of the camera.

Anything in particular to search for on ebay? I've tried fake and imitation, but don't seem to be getting the right ones.
Message: Posted by: tyler_rabbit (Aug 7, 2016 04:36AM)
Thanks, Tons. I don't see a strange view of a hidden coin at :14 or anywhere else- but do agree I was awkward; not much of a kids performer.. thanks again for watching and for the feedback!
Message: Posted by: tonsofquestions (Aug 7, 2016 12:12PM)
I've attached a screenshot.
Maybe I'm mistaken, but it looked like you put the coin in your palm, and here it's awkwardly/strangely held in heel clip.

I know it's possible to hold a coin like this, but I feel like most spectators don't, so flashing it seems akin to planting the seed of an idea of a gaffed coin. (Which, again, doesn't occur to most people.)

It's interesting you see it as that. I showed them a silver dollar and then let it rest on my fingers in a casual display. That's all you're seeing there. No heel clip, no concealment, no flashing etc. Overall it's far from a perfect execution of the routine and I do like feedback, but the thing you're perceiving just isn't there.. Here's the same routine in a different vid. The moment you're seeing is at :27 in this vid. https://youtu.be/gg5vFmkg07E

I gotta stop replying to mssgs when I first wake up. Sorry if that sounded all defensive. I think what you were seeing was a Kapps subtlety from a very specific angle and it looked like I was holding the coin between the heel of my palm and fingers.. anyway whatevs. I agree overall the whole thing is a bit awkward. Was fun but I don't normally do much kids magic.

Next week I'll be posting coins thru table in a restaurant and the week after: bedside magic for adult film legend Dana Dearmond as she recovers from breast augmentation surgery. So stay tuned and please subscribe if you haven't.

No apology necessary; I didn't think you sounded defensive.
You're right that the other video looks much more fluid. I think it's because the coin just briefly passes through the position, rather than spending time in it for a while because you pause to rest your hands on the table and talk.

I might also be more sensitive to it at the moment, since I saw someone recently do "the last time I did a trick with two coins, I got this messed up half-copper half-silver coin, let me see if I can split them back to normal" routine, which feels like it needlessly reveals a C/S coin.

And again, to reiterate: I do like the routine and story (and all of your work, in fact), I just think it has the potential to be even stronger if you tighten it up. I'm always excited to see new stuff from your channel. :)

Tyler, wanted to thank you for your videos. Been subscribed to your channel for a while but this is the first time I put two and two together. Just had one of those [i]"Finkle is Einhorn... Einhorn is Finkle!"[/i] moments.

Your Coins Across (here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEOYxijZ6Z8) – which I believe is a variation on Sankey's Mr. Clean Coins Across? Been a while since I watched the DVD – is a great effect that I've been learning the pinch in order to perform. Looks like a great effect for small groups/friends which is my style entirely.

Then I came into this thread and saw you perform it again... but this time two World's – strangely – collided where I see Dumbfoundead in your video! Now [i]that[/i] was a trip. Are you two friends? I know him as a battle rap personality but both he and you seem like an incredibly cool, down to earth guys which is why I'm drawn to your magic. Has a really approachable, personable feel to it.

So... not much else to say other than thanks... your magic is appreciated by people you never even knew saw it ;)
Message: Posted by: tyler_rabbit (Sep 23, 2016 04:48AM)
Wow holy toledo Scotch thanks for the encouragement and kind words it really mean a lot! Am also stoked someone in magic is up on 'underground' rap..
Dumb is a friend but am also a huge fan of his hilariously clever battle skills and studio tracks. Rek and Awkwa's stuff is very funny and catchy too. All three are truly nice folks and it was super cool of them to be in my video at 4am..

I'll have to check out Sankey's Mr. Clean Coins Across. I know he was doing some 'one behind' work without the clip but am not familiar.. If it's Sankey am sure its clever as heck. All I'm doing is Tenkai Pennies w/ multiple coins. Maybe someone can tell us the origin of the initial bottom steal to direct clip used on the first coin. It's not mine either.. The signed coin finale bit is something I recently added and wish I'd executed a bit better in the vid...

Thanks again for the shout!

Thanks for that link - just devoured a bunch of his blog posts surrounding the same themes: patter for the modern world; un-performing; casual magic; magic as a life hobby. Couldn't agree more on the idea of more magicians needing to step away from the long-held 'performance' role they've traditionally had – which has been beaten to death – and into an immersive 'storyteller' role where the magic [i]is[/i] the moment.

I'm the World's [i]worst[/i] consumer but I'm on the fence on buying that book.

What about you, Tyler? You seem to have a really non-performancey personality... What're your thoughts on magic for the modern, casual, stand-around audience?
Message: Posted by: Wilktone (Jan 10, 2017 09:18AM)
I bought the book, scotchrocket, after reading Tyler's post. If you found the blog enjoyable and worth while, you'll probably find the book as well. It really articulates many of the issues I've been wrestling with as a social magician that aren't really dealt with in books or advice for and by the professional magician. I recommend Amateur at the Kitchen Table.

Message: Posted by: tyler_rabbit (Jan 26, 2017 01:50AM)
Oh hey sorry I slept on this thread fellas! Just saw the replies.
I think its worth buying for a few reason: 1. the info. 2. it's just a fun oddity as an object. Have mine on a small end table with some hacker/art/music zines and other similarly formatted oddities.. Also, it supports the author and his blog posts- which can be very funny and sometimes unpleasantly all-to-true..

My 2 cents: projecting the large showmanship style is appropriate for some cases like actual performance venues, street busking etc, and clearly closely-adhered-to patter can be great in many circumstances where its pre-scripted nature puts people at ease ie you're there as "part of the entertainment." Personally I attempt to embrace a more casual style because I get bored of saying the exact same thing, and I'm not a good actor.

Also, while I enjoy doing open mic sets and an occasional low key charity gig, I'm not a professional magician and so can afford to improvise and fail sometimes. It's come to sort of also be my "character" when I am doing an actual "show." But given that a lot of the stuff we do is just for friends, colleagues, each other, or YT videos, Amateur At The Kitchen Table definitely has some good advice to apply to these more nonchalant performance circumstances.

I've also tried to keep that same casual home-made and relatively unscripted feeling going throughout the channel- which I shall now shamelessly plug: https://www.youtube.com/c/coinmagicunderground (each sub gives a bicycle rider back angel its wings..)

Occasionally we've shot some stuff with decent cameras, and tried to do some unsual storytelling, but overall I've always seen it as being made with cel phones and that anyone can do the same. It makes me SUPER happy when people in different parts of the world use the tag #coinmagicunderground because I intentionally chose the name to be generic and non-copywritable!

My dream would be for it to grow beyond me after having started with my underground inspirations like Dill, Roth, Rubinstein, Gallo, Neighbors.. and new legends like Ponta and Ogawa.
It was always this buzzphrase when I was a teen. I'd get introduced to someone like Neighbors and someone would say "that guy's pretty well known in the coin magic underground."

I love the idea of this mythical place: If you've got a few coins in your pocket + some moves to practice + a camera you're there: The Coin Magic Underground!!

New video up very very soon!! Sorry for delays.. Holiday+ work+ overly ambitious videos = far less output, but the good news is we got some awesome collaborators helping out. It turns out Frankie Foti is not only an awesome magician and intercontinental adventurer- but a whiz-kid with editing. Also, after these next two, I think we're going to go more minimal.. I bit off a bit more than I can chew with this current 4 part trilogy.

Cheers!

For sure! Ask away...
As for the most recent one, think I learned it here: http://a.co/4fDERvb
Also, recently I thought of a way to share some of my own routines (Banning Bailout, Fernabout Coins, Corn Banjo Underground) with the magic community online without charging for them and without exposing them to more than a handful of interested parties. To my (limited) knowledge it's going to be unique.. Will definitely be an interesting experiment. It starts here:

Well, now I've got to go back and watch all your videos to remember them. The one that leaps to mind is Dean Dill's Tonight Show Matrix, but I found that one (what a great routine!).

[quote]As for the most recent one, think I learned it here: http://a.co/4fDERvb [/quote]

Don't have that one, but it reminded me of where I thought I had seen it in Diamond Jim Tyler's Reel Magic lecture. Turns out that was a different type of prediction effect with a similar premise. I still swear I've seen it somewhere else, but the Harry Anderson book looks fun (and he's actually local to me now). I like the idea of doing a mentalism effect with coins to break up the visual magic but still using coins.

That also reminds me that one of my favorite moments in your recent video was the brief shot of your library. I tried to pause it to get a closer look and see which ones I own myself and which ones I might look into later.

Over the past few weeks I've gotten a lil obsessed with sp--t coins (yes splat coins)..
Got JJ's Coin Coalition in the mail today.. In the meantime here's a quick routine with Johnny Wong's set:

Fan of your work and a fan of relaxed and personable patter (you recommended [i]amateur at the kitchen table[/i] to me and I bought & loved it), so it was great to see you perform an extended set. Thanks for sharing Tyler, that whole set was a lot of fun.

P.S. You have a good eye for picking spectators.

P.P.S. I'm totally taking that "microbrew jokes" term and I may – or may not – credit you with it.

That was wonderful!

I also liked the "microbrew" joke, but even more, I enjoyed the actual (microbrewed) jokes! I burst out laughing at the "I bought them in China... I mean, you saw me materialize them right here", and I deeply appreciated the (story) of the spectator going "well, it's a magic show, seems pretty likely!" - I've thought the same thing in the past, and I'm sure many others have, too.

For the routine itself, I thought your use of Imagination Coins as the final coin through-table was fantastic - a great way to be both clean and get a spectator. I also really liked intro sequence where you started with a gold (it looked silver?) coin, switched to a washer, then said "let's pick something in the middle" as a way to introduce the Chinese coins pseudo-organically.

I think my only real criticism was in the finale: I felt you were pushing "it's my finale!" "really the end now!" a little too hard/frequently, It gave me the feeling of those breakdancing street performers, who build up their last trick for 15 minutes to grow the crowd, pass around the hat, etc. Yours certainly wasn't to the same extent, but that was the overall impression. Of course, that's just my opinion, you're welcome to decide differently.

Thanks again for sharing!

That's great feedback. Thanks a ton, Tons. I agree there's too many false endings, or at least mentions of a finale..

Hey gang! Couple routines from my friend Makoto.
[youtube]kMfORil8wNE[/youtube]
The card trick is going to be available for purchase/download literally any minute now on Dan and Dave's site.
Will definitely be posting more of his coin work in the near future.
You're going to be seeing more of this very bright and talented guy in the world of magic.

The timing and pacing on that coin routine is something to admire.

The coin-to-mouth in particular was spectacular, but I loved the whole routine so much that I looked him up on YouTube to see what the rest of it might look like :)

There's no substitute for putting in work. That was really graceful magic.

Have to agree rocket...So very well done, and as you say, "putting in the time," that's what it's really all about, and that's why it looks so good. :)

And tyler always posts some really great videos of some wonderful magicians, not always any such big names but just awesome performers just the same, much like himself. The coin and card work here are stellar and so much fun to watch. And I will be watching for Makoto going forward here...He's quite impressive! :)

You can learn a lot watching these guys work, and yep, when it all comes together, that's what it looks like...Magic! :)

Hahah omg you poor soul! That's like 5 hours!

Thanks for all the positive feedback guys! I've been forwarding your comments to Makoto and others...
Coming in the very near future:

Coin magic performances by Sinbad Max, creator of BOX.
Really enjoyed hanging out with this dude a bit while he was here in the US.
Chill dude and incredibly skilled with coins.
https://youtu.be/nXQyKj-3nPM

Full 20 minute Bijan The Magician Comedy Special coming in about 2 weeks!

I'm performing at the Magic Castle in the Close-Up Gallery May 3-6. If you're around, come and say hi!

In the coming months I'll be releasing 6 of my routines/effects which have appeared on the channel.
Have shot and edited about 3/4 of the material.
Am releasing the effects in a totally free but secret low-key way..
Basically to get the downloads, you'll have to find them based on a few clues..
Once they reach a yet to be determined number of views (maybe 1000?) they will vanish..
Quality will be comparable to a commercial DVD, but again: it'll be totally free.

Thanks again for the support and encouragement!

After watching on your channel a bit I must say that I really enjoyed the Close Up Magic Act 2018. Great showmanship! Beautiful girl in the audience, and fun jokes. Well done Mr. Rabbit. Just what a act should look like :)

I'm looking forward to your original routine releases. I've really enjoyed and been inspired by your YouTube channel. That said, I have one gripe - I want to see more Tyler Rabbit performances!
