Really?
I'm talking about the one that he gave to the girl on the two digit number thing!
I understand the principle in Reminescence, but this one seemed quite diferent...I may be wrong of course...

A ok.. I thought you were clueless sorry :S.. the standard preconsumption that everyone (me included) have on such boards (I guess it comes naturally.)

anyway... I believe no special board is needed, just the method you know.

I guess...

Yes, I agree.
I don't use any special board. But I think that the method used in The Gathering it's quite interesting...unnecessary, but cool;)

Ever notice how people tend to refer to Brown as just 'Derren', but Blaine is called 'David Blaine'...?

No need to reveal nothing, those who don't know the methods or seek despertly are the amateur unexperienced..Time will give them answers.

I also feel that it doesn't matter how a trick is done, the effect of the errr... effect is all that matters. We are, or should be, entertainers first and foremost.

We should learn from performances by looking at the reactions of our audiences and asking what effect each trick has had on them. We would then learn how better to move, how better to speak - the things they're prepared to believe and not believe. They hold the key, not other mentalists. I want to watch a version of any of Derren's shows through a camera trained on the audience, then I'll really be learning.

We should be asking, what convinced people who saw the show? What didn't? Why? It's not about Derren, but the people he and we are playing to. It's their psychology - and emotional responses to what we do - that we need to be acutely and continually aware of.

Sorry -- I just watched the gathering, had to drag this up again....

GREAT stuff...

very nice -- nice style, tempting for all to duplicate...

well -- it was in 95 anyways, which explains all the clones....

People guessing how Derren did what. Is this the Café, or some layman website?

The Café. People here make "educated guesses"... Some laymen sites on Derren are funnier and the discussions are often friendlier...

Love this show and watched this many times . He used many fantastic mental magic methods but I still don't know how he read a name with girl routine . It wasn't peek or DR and I don't belive in lip reading . Maybe it was pre s ? What are you thinking about this ?

I'm thinking we don't guess at other guy's methods in here.

Three things chlopiec:
1. Thank you for using the search feature to bring up an existing thread rather than starting a new one. Good etiquette.
2. This thread (I'm pretty sure) pre-dates the Inner Thoughts forum, so there is a lot of candid discussion of methods in here that these days we'd disapprove of. What matcut has said is true - we don't discuss methods in Penny any more, and we now also tend to take a dim view of guessing at and exposing another performer's work.
3. If you read over all 6 pages of this discussion you'll find some possible answers to your question. Whether they are right or not is immaterial, so long as such methods could work for you.
