Dang.. sorry- DG.

Where the heck is the edit feature for my fat fingers?

I wonder if this is a thread about a witnessed effect that just happened to have happened the way it was supposed to have happened at the right time.

In other words, had JM not re-selected a quarter and stayed with the dime, would DG have simply poured out a quarter and said "no...but that would've been a good" much like we all have simply placed a facedown card in front of someone and asked them to simply name a card, secretly wishing it would work just once.

I doubt it, since DG's magic is so good and devious...then again???

The bit about it having never been practiced or performed sounds a bit suspect/patter like to me.

Now I'm confused. This started as a great thread and now we are talking about DG using someone elses routine? I liked the concept and if he wishes to keep it to himself, more power to him.

The question is, did his eyes turn black when he did it? Sorry I just saw The Covenant. Sounds like an amazing effect though and I hope I get to see it performed someday.

It would be great to see it performed with no explanation on how it was done.

No, what would be great is if Mr. Garcia came in here and posted his opinion on the matter.

If I ever go to a DG lecture I'm going to beg him to show me this (not explain).

But seriously... the greatest magic trick ever performed?
based on the description of the effect, I simply have to disagree. Perhaps to a magician attempting to fish out a method this represents such a thing, but for a real audience or spectator? I don't think so.
I think there are many things that would be far more memorable than this effect. And, of course, context is everything.

Cool? Sure.
Greatest ever? Hardly.
It's all in the reflexes.

Boy, you are one bad meauxfeaux...(pun intended):D Perhaps, without the guy saying it, it was just his "opinion" that it was the greatest ever. Guess you took it literally. But I think he was just trying to let us know really how wonderfully amazing an effect he and others there found it to be. Try to calm down a little bit, no need for such intensity on something that was so intentionally harmless.

Good Day to you. Smile -MB

I have to agree. to a magician it might seems the greatest cause of the lack of moves and what not. to a laymen it would be "the coin changed". and as we all know, there are various methods of achieving that.... I think to be the greatest ever .... the borrowed coin would have to change slowly without cover, like a metamorphisis into another, and heck... why not while the spec is holding it in there hands staring at it. Just saying, "best ever effect" is a strong statment to make without taking in some considerations of what would make the best ever.
