Hi Tom
Great clip, very entertaining.
I have a suggestion, when you where a hat, tip it right back on your head to show your face and eyes, stage or street. If you don’t a dark shadow will be cast across your eyes which can be as bad as wearing sun glasses in a show.
Tack it or leave it. Smile

Very clear, very well done.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Tom-
That looks great. I am putting together a video now from a combination of photos and videos from the past 4-5 years. Your videos inspired me to get motivated and put it together. Great stuff Tom!

Thanks for all the compliments gang! Nice to hear. Yes that's the Jack Miller Linking Ring Routine w/ Poetic Patter that I released on DVD as an Instructional. I still have some left for $25 + $4.50 S&H. The day was good banged out a couple hundred bucks in an hour and a half.

I bought Tom's DVD. It's really nice and a wonderful routine. I don't actually perform his routine because, well, I'm not Tom. I intend to give it more thought one day though. I'm sort of cruising, thinking about different poems that I might bend to my will as Tom did The Raven.

What a great choice in a poem though.

I've never been much for the linking rings... but that was a really fun routine! (Makes sense since I HAVE always been a fan of "The Raven") Smile

Cheers,

For the record I took Jack MIller's Routine AND HIS Poetry and made it my own. Nobody's stepping on my feet by doing it as well. I think it's one hell of a routine. I just wish I could do it justice.

Tom -

Sweet! I'd definitely stop, watch and tip even if I weren't a magician!

Tom,

As I watched the ring routine I kept saying to myself, "There needs to be something different in his voice." Perhaps a change in quality or tone, not sure. Seemed that the mood and style of the poetry called for some kind of a vocal change to match the (very) well done routine. I know that being on the street you have to be heard, so your choices are limited as far as that goes.

There was nothing 'wrong' - I never sensed something I would call a problem, far from it - as I said in an earlier post, it was clean and clear magic. I especially liked the slight change to suit the environment: "While you sit, relaxed and tipping."

My above comment was just something that came into my head as I was watching the rings. Also liked the way you got people on your side as you prepared for the hat.

My 2 cents.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

You should see the way that he does it on his DVD. He does a voice-over with a booming God-like voice. It's really well done.

I do my rings silently to music. If I were to give advice it would be to use a boom box and do the routine as he does it on his DVD.

The joys of performing Live outdoors!!

I have not done this for a year or so now due to many theatre shows etc

Tom-Having seen your clip-Makes me want to create an act to perform outdoors at festivals /markets etc again-The rush you get from having the audience so close & having a good time is an experience in itself!!

Were you only performing 3-4 effects at a time for 10 mins then waiting for a new crowd etc-seemed to work well what we saw!

Great balancing on the stool by the way!!- well done!!
