Dear ALL,

It is difficult to narrow down effects for Rannie's book.

If it is the first Rannie's book, I think it should have every aspect inside, cards, coins, mentalism, somehow easier cups and balls, a little bit theory on misdirection, sleeving.

The difficulty should set as moderate to intermediate, otherwise the market cannot absorb Rannie's first attempt, besides, easy and visual effect create noise here...

I am still editing the last two video clips of 'Hand Size doesn't matter' lecture DVD, maybe I can have more inspirations during my editing on Rannie's performance.

Keep the discussion running, PM welcome.

This will be another most anticipated book / project for 2008!

All the best,

Steven

I agree with Ron. "Because I said so" sounds really like the BOss.

Wow! This'll be big! THis is such a great news. The Boss has a whole lot more up his sleeves.

My dear friends,

Thank you for the warm response. I would like to thank my friend Christopher for giving me this golden opportunity to share my magic. Please post the names of my effects that you wish to be included in the book. You may even describe it briefly and I will know what it is. Be assured that every effect/routine will be explained in full detail.

I went thru the posts and saw some of my favorite workers. I am glad that people still remember my "Not So Gaffless Hopping Halves". This baby has really served me well, especially when I travel.

B fly will be there too.

Please allow me to think about The Boss' Ultimate Mind Reading routine. THis is something quite difficult to teach more than learn. It is my Pièce de résistance!
I do have a method that produces a very similar effect...B52's...that can be included.

Hope to hear from you guys. The project is already in the first stage of production.

My my...what can I say...this is really good news Christopher.... Thank you for this... I am already pre-ordering one.... I'm sure you guys will not run out of effects to put in the book...I have been doing magic with Rannie for some time now and I have seen mostly all of his tricks (I think) all I can say is good luck...good luck in selecting which ones to include...ahhh the multitude of effects.. its gonna be a lot of work I tell you... Smile

What I am looking forward to seeing is his theories, principles and other priceless pieces of knowledge brought about his many years of experience in performing. What the Boss' thoughts are on things that are most important in magic - presentation, showmanship, creativity and the likes. That would be something nice to immortalize in a book.

Excited,
Anthony

Thanks for all the support so far, I really can see this being up for book of 2008. It won't be released until next year at the earliest, this is not something I am going to rush. I want this to be perfect, and only when myself and Rannie are completely happy with the final produce, will we then look at getting it printed.

As for the title of the book, may I suggest "mysteries of the tavern"
as for the effects, here's a few list...
1) the ritual
2) the levitating table
3) the boss zombie ball
4) coin through clear ziplock bag

Thanks Christopher the book idea sounds fantastic! I am sure whatever you guys decide to put in the book will be great. I am happy to hear Rannie is going to put in the "B Fly" routine, its one of my favorites! I never seen Rannie's "Not So Gaffless Hopping Halves", but I have heard about it and I am glad that will be in the book. As far as I am concerned the more coin routines, the better, but I know and have seen some of Rannie's card routines and they kill too!

You definately can put me down for a copy. I just love the idea! Just don't take too long. I can't wait already! I have to say for the title "Rannie Raymundo(The BOSS).....Because I Said So." has a nice ring to it. I wish you guys all the luck in the world.....
Where I go, so do my coins.....

The Boss tirelessly works for the advancement of his craft. If he could do away with sleep, he would. I think he has found a way to get around this by dreaming about magic routines.

In terms of material, I think that whatever the boss wishes to share would be great.

There will be a mix of mentalism, coins, cards...eggs!!!! (Yes, eggs!)

As I said, it will take some time to do this, but I am in the first stages as we speak of writing the book. I like the 'Rannie Raymundo...because I said so' title, after a suitable amount of names we will have a poll or something. I hope to have this out in 2008, it will NOT be out in 2007. Agai, still looking for suggestions from routines. B Fly will finally see print, I watched Rannie performna teach this on one of his DVDs, WOW!!! Fooled me!!! Those types of routines will take some time to write up, but will be well worth it.

A list so far guys!

Raytrix Reloaded- Four coins and a jumbo card are placed on the mat. The spectator chooses one coin at a time, on the Magicians command, each coin disappears, and appears under the card. At the end, the Magician takes all four coins, and makes them vanish all at once, as they appear under the card again!!!

Freaky Transpo- Borrow a deck, or use your own. A spectator takes ANY card from the deck and can sign it, and the Magician takes a card for himself. The spectator olds onto their card whilst it is unquestionably their card, and the Magicians is placed on top of the deck. A snap, and now the spectators card is on top, and the spectator is holding onto the Magicians card. Everything can be examined!

How Many? – A two in the hand, one in the pocket with Dice, where three dice…grow…then grow…then grow…before becoming one large Dice, which vanishes right in front of their eyes

4 coins and a glass- One of Rannie’s signature effects. Four coins, and only four, and one (And only one) glass are used. One by one, the coins travel from one hand, and land in a glass, each getting more impossible than the preceding coin. At the end of the coin, the Magician goes to place his coins back in the glass…only to find the glass has vanished!!!

The Boss’ Poker deal – A borrowed shuffled deck effect!!! The Magician memorises the deck, including a named poker hand and their positions. The deck is then shuffled again. The spectator names how many players they want in a game of poker, and which hand they want to win. The spectator deals the cards, and all the other ands are shown…nothing, the named hand is turned over, it is the exact poker hand named!!!

Blow me a Kiss- ANY card is selected and signed. The card is lost back into the deck and the deck is shuffled. You ask a gentleman to tap the deck, he does, nothing happens, ask another gentleman to try…nothing. So he turns to a female, and asks here to blow a kiss at the deck. As she does, a ‘kiss’ appears on the back of the top card. The card is turned over, it is the signed selection! The Magician goes to give the card back…but not before taking the kiss!

Stupid Force- A force that is so stupid it works!!! A great variation on an old force that is so convincing and bold that you just won’t see it!

This is the card- ANY card is selected, again, it can be signed. The card is returned to a shuffled deck, and again, the deck is lost even more in the deck. The spectator cuts the deck as much as they like. The Magician bets he will find the card…all the money in his wallet, that this IS the card. He is wrong…however, he only said that it is THE card, not THEIR card. However, he deals the amount of cards to the value of the card. The card at this position is the spectators card.

Ran Ping Chen- Rannie’s method of doing the Hang Ping Chen, a great, natural looking way to do this move.

The Boss’ change- One of the best changes of one coin into another you will find! Works great as well for a bending coin routine.


Raw Choice- A Russian roulette…with Eggs!!!! A bowl with 5 eggs sit on the table. The spectator chooses ANY egg, and signs their name on the Egg to make sure that no switches appear later. The other four eggs are slammed on the table…all are hard boiled. The spectators signed egg, which was a completely free choice, is cracked open to find it is a normal egg!

The other card- A card is removed from the deck and a ‘lucky’ coin is placed on top. ANY card is selected and signed. This card is lost back in the deck. The Magician remembers it isn’t a trick where it needs to get lost in the deck, so runs back through to try and find it…but it isn’t there…and with the Magicians lucky coin there as well, how could it have gone wrong?!?! But wait! What about the card UNDER the coin, since before the trick even began…it is turned over and seen to be the signed selection!!!

Costume change- A coin is borrowed and signed. Now a bill is borrowed. The signed coin is placed in the middle of the borrowed bill, which is then scrunched into a ball…just a blow, and the bill has changed into a different bill…the bill is unfolded and the signed coin is different bill!!! This is what real Magic looks like!

Mr Picasso- ANY card is again selected and signed. The card is lost back in the deck. The Magician attempts to find the card…several times…but fails each time. So he does the next best thing…makes one card appear…as if from nowhere…or behind his ear…however, it is blank. So the Magician draws the selected card on the blank card, including the signature. Not impressed, the Magician blows on the card and it Magically turns into the spectators signed, selected card.

The Boss’ Ultimate Birthday trick- A card is selected and signed, then lost back into the deck. The Magician asks the spectator how old they will be on their next birthday. The deck is shuffled once more. The spectator deals along to the song of ‘Happy Birthday’ The card they stop on…is not their card…however, by taking that and the next card, gives the age the spectator will be on their next birthday!!! Add the two values together and deal to the new number, and you find the spectators birthday card…or their signed selected card as we will call it

B- Fly- One of the best, cleanest, most visual Three Fly routines created! Critically acclaimed as one of the best handlings in this field, the real work is finally tipped!

The Big Boss- Three coins are turned invisible one at a time. Then the coins reappear in a Magical fashion! This is visual eye candy at its best! One of the best three coin vanish and productions out there!

Because they can- Possibly the CLEANEST handling of Three Fly ever created! Three coins held in the fingertips of one hand, fly invisibly to the other hand where they become visible again. A version where the hands don’t come anywhere near each other after or before each coins travels!!!

Quatro Cantos- Four coins are fairly shown and tossed from one hand to the other. One coins is made invisible…and then appears at the other side of the mat. This happens with the other three coins, one at a time, each coin clearly being shown each time before coins across. Nothing but four coins and two hands used! Really looks like Magic!

Boss Monedas- Two cards, a copper coin and a silver coin. The copper coin goes under one card, the silver under the other card. Just a snap, and the cards are lifted to show that the coins switch places!

Ode to Homer- Four coins travel from one hand to the other. An ode to Homer Liwag. Really does look amazing and Magical!!! Uses only four coins…oh, and an imaginary coin!

The Boss’ four coins across- A coins across from the Magicians hand to the spectators hand. They see the coin, and hear the coin appear. A REAL reputation maker! (As if the others haven’t had you burned at the stake yet!)

Not so gaffless hopping halves- A version of Hopping halves, which uses NO gaffs, just two borrowed coins. Both coins are held in one hand. One coin is removed and placed in the Magicians pocket. How many in the hand? That’s right…two. The other coin is taken and placed in the pocket. How many, clearly, does that leave in the hand…correct, two! The spectator says which coin they want to see removed this time, the coin is removed and placed in the Magicians pocket. So, NOW how many in the hand…two? No…NONE!!!

Thank you for the warm reception on the upcoming book. Actually, about, 12 hours from now, the Tavern people, sir rannie's selected few students, would have a session, and help the boss remember most of his best routines. No, no, not that Rannie suffers from amnesia or something, he had made so many, it's difficult to recall for him. Sometimes, even he forgets his own methods. He ends up being fooled by his own routines, done by his students. He ends up thinking that his punchlines, philosophies, subtleties, etc are new, when performed on him--- when in fact, he had been using it for quite some time now. lol This saturday, we'd help the boss to hopefully remember.

The cups and balls is a tough one....i will speak with Rannie about this. I am not saying I can't write it up, but there are reasons for this.

Josh, that is a list of everything which COULD go in the book, and, if the Boss wants it all in, it will go in. However, I will write the routines up he wants in the book.

And if the Boss can't remember them all, I have all the original videos if he doesn't still have them Smile

I know there is plenty more which could go in the book, in fact, that's the list with me missing items off!!!

I am also trying to see whether we can get a full performance DVD to go with the book, so people can see how they are meant to look. Sometimes when reading, people get confused, and want to see what it SHOULD look like, and this will hopefully be new footage, not taken from previous performance. We want to see the Boss doing it years from when he first created it! Smile
