I think we need a new forum on the Café....We can call it "Let's Get Ready to Rumble"......for anyone looking for a fight.

Good idea, and: how about an ultra-polite forum where people go out of their way to treat each other with respect?

Yeah, but did you hear a light little tinkling of a bell? 'Cause you know that's what Tinkerbell sounds like.

I can't see why people would want to come on this forum and disrespect others,this is a magic forum where we share ideas ,finding information concerning the art..but hey what do I know ? I guess we are just human after all.

Chad, you are truly an expert at what bible scholars call a "proof search" - wherein people search the bible for "proof" of their contentions, all the while ignoring anything that might contradict what they want to prove.

Actually, just because this thread as become ridiculous once again, let me add another correction, especially since it is in quotes. "Proof Search" is not the phrase. It is called, "Proof Texting" or "Proof-texts."

Just to keep things on the up and up, and using correct phrases where needed. Cause we all know how it is so important, especially in fantastic and uplifting threads as this one.

Yes, thank you; you are correct - though I have usually seen it spelled as one word ("prooftext" or "prooftexting"). "Proof search" is a term used in mathematics and logic - I was a math major in college - and I misspoke (or, to use the technical term, "brainfarted").

Chad has done very well in this thread and has shown much more restraint then I would perhapse.

Chad has done his homework and has proven that he knows what he is talking about. I don't know how long he has been involved in magic but even if it is a year or two he has shown a strong urge to study the history of magic and his journey in magic will be all the better for that urge.

I have been involved in magic for 30 plus years I can say studying the history is even more exciting then learning a new move or buying a new effect.

Good work Chad and keep it up!

Not to derail this thread, but Mike Ammar solved the problem of the last coin LONG ago, in his Topit book: see "Coins Across Ending."

I vaguely recall the Ammar thing - same book as the nice use of the Bertram clip right? Been over twenty years since I've seen the book - did he have the fan out and then show that the coin had arrived into it?

In a way, Roth solved it as well via a Slydini drop and his Lapel coin though not sure such has been explored in this context. Imagine using the Sylvester pitch action on the way to the lapel to load up - then showing the coin up at the lapel and continuing down (okay it's a going to be a palm down action) and then making the transit at the next beat -?

WU - not all of us are happy with our methods for getting that last coin to vanish.

I would say that while there are some good ways to "manage" the problem, it would be nice to eliminate it.

To the original poster--read the Sept 2006 issue of Genii for Jonathan Townsend's remarkable description of his 3-fly routine. It's rare to have such a detailed write-up of the psychology, performance, and creation of a routine. A real model of magic teaching in the written mode.


As for the rest of this thread . . . I'm astounded that a member on this board can make the kind of claims that TW makes about another without any proof. The one time in my life that I wish I were Steve Brooks.

Yeah, Townsend coached me on this too.

Disgusted,
