I thought it was a great trick and though I expected some more charisma from him at first-- being on a big stage in front of several hundred people-- by the end I found myself really enjoying his lowkey style. I also try to always remember when seeing a performance that being there in person is always VERY different than watching it on a video screen. Movies move us because there are so many elements that we are witnessing without realizing it (music, visual effects, set design, costumes, etc.). On a stage with minimal props or setting and no audible music, the performance comes across as raw. In person, the experience would be very different. I see why he received a standing ovation. He probably deserved it judging by those who were actually there.

Lol look at the wallet to refresh the memory Smile

I think I figured it out, but then that'd be exposure...

I'm sure it's not the wallet, but nice try...Nate did it for Chris in his dining room...He watched him like a hawk, and he still pulled it off!

I think it was very good.

I like the character he established.

I will pick up his DVD and I am very happy that there are no explanations on there.

It is so nice to be amazed.

I don't want explantions but I would like to know where he got his jacket.

He also wears a vintage U2 Joshua Tree t-shirt which is very very boss.

I think he won the jacket from Criss Angel in a magic-off.

Hi Nathan
You say you love the feeling of astonishment & cherish it, if that is the case why would you want someone to PM you to spoile the illusion?

Just one hint and I'm not going to give anything away, just think how you would go about it to accomplish the same demonstration under the same conditions. If you still cannot work it out, your mentalism knowledge is not complete.

with all the spouting off you are doing about how you know how it is done....that just tells me you are probably the most confused on the entire thread.

Indeed. And the fact that you infer there is the possibility of having a "complete" knowledge of mentalism, tells all.

Amen! Gabelson, for your information, I did a quick bit of research of how to say Amen in the Jewish faith...My research led me to find that Amen is the word I should be using since you just delivered a blessing. I always kicks it PC up in this piece.

I had the pleasure of seeing Nate's show about a year ago, and then talking with him after the show. Not only is he a great guy, but his show was the first time in years that I'd been genuinely left in a state of disbelief. His personality on stage was straight forward - there was very little intentional comedy, there was no real theme for the show, and there was no transitional material. He basically went, "Let me show you this. Now let me show you this..." and so on. Still, the audience went nuts, and I am grateful for once again being thoroughly fooled and entertained.

To me there are 2 issues here-

performance
method

I would say the performance was not good.
This is a beginner, or a young performer.
There is not a lot of performance experience or
theory in this. No idea on building suspense or drama.

The effect is great.
But man, look at the hardware on the belt,
It doesn't take Einstein to see what is going on.

Think how you would do it, then
google in the word "portable."

My 2 cents.
Cheers.

Well, Nate S. would have to have created this effect prior to 2002 at the latest. Otherwise, it's an Anthony Owen effect called "Natural Lottery", though this version uses a somewhat different method. The effect, however, is Anthony's - and it's published in his booklet "Some Tricks".

I, too, didn't care for the protracted spectator selection and the very dry presentation... but that's just me.

And finally, Nathan, why do imagine that only Nate could conceive this clean handling and only his friends could know how it's done? There are many great and creative minds in magic, and some of them are very hard to fool.

I thought it was PERFECT for the situation!
I know how "I" do this effect and since everyone says that his way is new I can continue to do it MY WAY without fear of reprisal Smile Correct?
It looks like a NACA convention or something. If it's his regular show then people already know he's going to predict something.
The hidden jewel here is his last six words and the delivery of them ...
"Ladies and Gentlemen ........ WELCOME TO THE SHOW!"
PERFECT!!!!! Smile
