Smooth man. Real smooth.

If he is reading this thread:

Hi Wayne,

First of all, don't be discouraged by the some of the harsh comments.The beauty of the ambitious card routine is the "fairness" of the card coming to the top of the deck. Don't confuse the audience with a lot of hand movement. If you keep the deck in a space of about 8" by 8" for about 90% of the routine, it will play a lot stronger to the audience.

Your routine is all over the place. 3 or 4 phases that build (underline build) in impossibility is what you should work toward. On a final note, study how proffesional card magicians hold and handle the deck. You do not have to be overtly flashy, but smooth and gentle is the key.

I wish you well in the art of magic, Wayne.

I agree, and also don´t sell yourself as something you aren´t.
Magicians help magicians,
when they ask for help.

Wonderful things do happen
Magic is so relative, that we all think we know what it is

Can't imagine how badly this performance was...

It make me start to rethink those in my city that expose magic badly, selling pirate duplicates Magic DVDs that their shopkeepers are not that bad skill after all¡K

Oh¡K what I want to say is, it is not a performance, cannot even barely called an exposure, I would say it is a lousy exposure plus card handling¡K

7 years in the Magic Castle¡K what is the standard of the Magic Castle nowadays then?

Sorry to say that he is better to try another hobby like stamp collecting ¡K lol
