Steve Brooks posted a bio (written by Jim Sisti) in the Café's welcome section for Mr. Osterlind's July visit...in it he wrote, "His new video release will be available later this year." Does anyone (particularly Mr. Osterlind or Mr. Sisti) have any information that they are willing to share on the scope of this forthcoming project?

With eager anticipation,

David

Just wait till Saturday and ask him during his visit to the Café!

I'm already setting aside some money for these videos, definitely.
Thanks! Scott B.

Good thought, unfortunately it is not until JULY 11th that Mr. Osterlind will be joining us in the 'Chef Special' forum. I guess this could be seen as an opportunity to practice 'patience' on my part, but I'd prefer to put off practice on that topic for about another month Smile

Whoopsy David, my bad (Looks like ive been going too long without sleep lately!)

In that case, yes. Can Richard or Jim Sisti PLEASE give us some information on this set?
Thanks! Scott B.

Without letting too many cats out of the bag, I can tell you that it will be a fall release and will essentially be a continuation of the "Mind Mysteries" series in that it will only contain Richard's own material.

I'm sure that he'll have more to say about these videos when he's a special guest here in July.

Jim,

Thanks for the tidbit! Will it be an L&L release?

Best,

David

Thanks for the update Jim. Mind Mysteries is a classic in my honest opinion. I can't wait until July. I have sooooo many questions. This is going to be fun.

I'm pretty sure someone (possibly Richard) said something about filming these during the filming of ETMMM (around that time) at Lake Tahoe. And also, I'm guessing L&L owns the copyright on the Mind Mysteries series.
Thanks! Scott B.

Scott b. as far as I know, that's true as well. The poor guy must have exhausted after having filmed both in one trip.

Best,

Looking forward to July 11th.

Pretty much about the new videos has been held under cover for a long time.
However, rumours say that they will be just as great as Mind Mysteries.
I am certain about that investing in even more Osterlind material, will give me return of that money many times
I own pretty much of what you can find on his website, and have not been disapointed one single time.
Take it for granted that I will be among the first in line when they are released sometime this year.

I guess we'll have to wait and see if the new videos will be all mentalism effects or if, as in the series you refer to, they'll contain a significant amount of non-mentalism magic "filler," as another forum participant has characterized it.

It just happened to me too, so relax...you're probably not banned from it Smile Smile Smile
I have a guess on that it is down for service or that Jim is adding some new informations.
About the new book and videos, maybe?

This confirms once and for ever that you have no idea whatsoever of what you are talking about.
But fine, be my guest - just continue to dig your own hole.

Sven, I think that's unfair to a degree.

I love Osterlinds Mind Mysteries but a torn and restored post it is not mentalism, neither is a bill to cigarette, torn & restored sugar packet (sweet & low) Torn and restored newspaper.

This is not mentalism and some may say they felt this was filler on a mentalism dvd. If an unknown artist put his vanishing hank on a mentalism dvd we'd all shout filler. I think the signed newspaper restoration is nice, along with the bill to cigarette as magic tricks, I thought the torn & restored post it note was just pure filler.

I am not here to slam Mr Osterlind, I love his work. I am playing the Devils advocate and some might see this a filler and have a right to say so.

Just my thought on it...

Thanks for your reflected thoughts.

I agree to that there are a few magic effects in MM
However, there are even more on top of the mental effects that maybe can't be described as mentalism, but something " a mentalist could or would do"
Linking Finger Rings is one example.

Why I snapped, was because of in what flavour the post was put.
If you read MentaThoughts posts here (not that they are too interesting)you will find that he doesn't miss one option to try to drag Richards material or what Richard says here down in the dirt.
I would not be surprised if MentaThought turns up with a reply to this reply, saying something like:

"I didn't characterize that as
they'll contain a significant amount of non-mentalism magic filler, it was ANOTHER forum participant that did that"
See my point on where he probably comes from?

Even though there aremagic effects in MM, like what you mentioned, and not to forget the water glass production, not even the ones that reflected disagree on Richard's thoughts, theories and philosophy would dream of calling them "fillers"
