Edh,

Thanks. Looking back on it, the double stick tape is a bit lame and unnecessary. However, I am still happy with the patter.

Way to go! Nearly four years to answer a post! Smile

Timely Departure has become my fave now since I wrote five years back!

Vicious Rumors: the "assisted switch" is brilliant.

Also played around with Strangers Gallery until I lost the special cards.

I am also fond of his Fractal creations, especially his packet effect The Royal Scam which is like the Emerson/West Sympathetic Cards only on steroids (and examinable).

Current favorite:

1. Dawn Patrol
2. Timely Departure
3. Beyond Fabulous

Frankly speaking, just using Bannon's close up materials well can make you a pretty decent close up magician, in my opinion. Just my 2 cents.
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.

I would have to say FAT CITY, its a great follow up to any sandwich routine. its impromptu and all tho a little ballsy is visually stunning! when done well it will seem that the deck just visually appears between your sandwich cards.

Almost every post is cards........i also really like shanghai surprise its a great way to utilize ur copper silver coin with out doing the traditional copper silver type routines..

his coin to bottle is really cool to, but difficult to find a small nail polish bottle for it. the small 1 shot scope mouth wash bottles work perfect for this routine I'm to lazy to go thru the book right now bcaus its 1am but I think its called vacuum packed!

One routine I have not seen posted here that really plays well is The Ace Man Cometh from Smoke and Mirrors

This is one of the most magical ace-cutting routines extant: it's not a display of skill (as are most ace-cutting routines) because the magician never cuts to an ace; rather, he uses magic to correct each errant cut to get a pair (fours), then three-of-a-kind (queens), then four-of-a-kind (aces).


I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned! I love this effect!

My favorites are Play it Straight Triumph, Dawn Patrol, both with hideout spread move by Joshua Jay and Origami Prediction. It's very powerfull and clever card magic his work. I will add more of his routines to my reportoire for sure. Love his stuff.

For me, "Reversal of Fourtune" from Smoke and Mirrors, pp.82. Impromptu, in the spectators hands and the effect is very stunning.
