Hey World Magic people! You guys don't seem to respond much on your World Magic Chat forum so since Jaz and Gochos appears to be live and kicking here then I might as well just chime in with my question. Guys, do you have the status on my replacement PK ring and Bang-On thing? I believe I PayPal'd you guys around two weeks ago or so. Please let me know!

Steve, Smile
I don't deal with retail only wholesale and in anycase, this thread is about Refraction, it is not the place for this enquiry. You can email us, call us or even walk into our shop and see us. That way, we may even know who we are talking to. but I certainly have had no contact from anyone called kissdadookie or slightly Steve. If I had, you can rest assured that your enquiry would have been dealt with. Now if you care to email me with your full name, address and contact details and an outline of your problem, I will deal with it. Smile

Jaz,

I'm just casting light (and yes a bit light heartedly) on the fact that quoting Kenny and Martin as you have above doesn't carry the weight of a truly established and internationally recognized name.

When I think of Scottsmen I always think of Blemonges (and I'm pretty sure I spelled that wrong having never eaten one myself).

You are contradicting yourself here as the DVD is endorsed by Mark Oberon.

Actually Gochos, I'm not contradicting myself. The endo(u)rsements quoted above by Jaz are the one's I'm referring to. I don't know of any others.

Tom,
I do believe the correct spelling is blamonge.
I have never eaten a Scotsman either. I have heard that they taste a little bit like chicken with just a hint of heather and Whiskey

With regard to the best mentalists, I suggest a look here on the Café.

Blancmange is the correct spelling!

I guess your not as articulate as like what you and I are do .....

:)

Basic Dessert Recipes: Blancmange

Ingredients

60 ml (4 level tbsp) cornflower
568 ml (1 pint) milk
strip of lemon rind
45 ml (3 level tbsp) sugar


Method (should I be revealing this?)

1. Blend the cornflour to a smooth paste with 30 ml (2 tbsp) of the milk.

2. Boil the remaining milk with the lemon rind and strain it on to the blended mixture, stirring well.

3. Return the mixture to the pan and bring to the boil, stirring all the time, until the mixture thickens and cook for a further 3 minutes. Add sugar to taste.

4. Pour into a 600 ml (1 pint) dampened jelly mould and leave for several hours until set. Turn out to serve with fresh fruit

serves 4

Mindreader,

Awesome Smile

Thanks for the heads up on the correct spelling of blancmange I knew I had got it wrong because MS Word ™ spelled it correctly for me when I was formulating my reply.

I had to disable spell check because I thought my version was better than the version Tom had and way better phonetically than the original version. No slights or hidden letters. What you get is what you eat. Smile


However I notice that you have not credited Fanny Craddock or old Mrs Beeton when giving us your version of this wonderful old pudding effect. You have definitely exposed a whole lot more than anyone would have expected on this type of forum.

On the exposure side, as you are so well informed on this effect, do you have to switch bowls at any point during the preparation or serving up of this pudding?. Can you make it surrounded; will it work in walk around? and do you make it differently for restaurants, corporate etc

If it's not a one move packet pudding then I definitely will not be using it as I do not have that level of cooking skill.

So are you saying that while I do own Manifestations and Paramiricles and the excellent handling of the bending glass routine contained within these two, it would be good for me to spend an additional $70 on another version of this?
That's the bottom line Smile

Love this post. Really witty. Maybe you could have some white mange in the glass whilst you bend the stem!

Hey Slim,

That is your call dude but you will miss out on this new and original handling as authored by David.

Tom, I am all for giving the blancmange a "U" but I am not ever going to eat one Smile

I just recieved this DVD and it is excellent. Davcid Penn is a great showman and teaches many subtleties for this effect.

David also teaches two opening effects to perform to set up the bending.
He has a very good display for the fork tine bend that he says Banachek really liked.

Two switches are taught on the DVD both a very good. A lot of detail is given to the timing and body positioning for the switches. Someone said earlier that it was just "set it down and pick up another" and that is just not the case.
David goes into great detail about the switches and in the performance [which is filmed at a real banquet] the man turns around after the bending and complains that that is his glass.

The bending itself is very detailed and David goes over all the angles. You have very good coverage using his method.

I paid $70 for this DVD and feel that It is a great value.

Ted Lesley's book and DVD are excellent. His Bending wine glass is superb. It does require quite a bit of set up. Lee Earle's bending is one page of instruction and requires a helper.

I think David Penn's Refraction DVD is an excellent addition to this genre of PK effects.

Let's face it, the method is optical. Who really invented that? Uri Gellar?
Did anyone ask Uri if they could use his bends? I think not.

Please don't buy this DVD though. I want to keep it to myself.

Each time you need to bend a glass you need 10 mins to prepare?

Note that this is basically a 1-on-1 performance.

The demo shows a woman explaining the effect at an 8-top, but it should be said that you could not perform this simultaneously for all those people sitting at that table.
Like Bonnie Raitt said, "I miss Little Feat more than I miss being 8 years old." Thanks for the concerts + recordings, Lowell, Richie, and Paul!

Hey Steve,
Actually you can. He covers angles very well. You are certainly performing for one, but the others can look on.

Yes, you need ten minutes per glass.

This effect is for pros that want to do something special for the booker or guest of honor.

It is NOT a walk around, instant reset,no sleights needed, learn in ten minutes,Penguin magic download. $19.99 [glasses included]
