Right on Julianna,

From your video I saw something very special.
You displayed a style that was very down to earth and friendly with your spec.
I may be sounding like an old fart here but it seems more and more magicians are lacking grace. A cheesy arrogance can turn me off from what could have been an outstanding performance.
In the same token you have allot of tactful spunk, good on ya.
It is also obvious from the number of posts that you have generated; you are on the right track.

Good job, Jewels. I take back everything I said. Magicians are a very skeptical bunch. A lot of people thought this was a hoax perpetrated by someone with a very sick sense of humor. I think the MC moderators even thought it was a hoax. A beginner learning a memorized deck stack? A beautiful high school girl interested in card tricks? It all seemed too good to be true. Sorry we doubted you.

If you want to speed up the learning process, I suggest you ask for Michael Ammar's "Easy to Master Card Miracles" DVDs - Vols. 1 - 6 for Christmas. These DVDs contain many of the best card tricks ever invented. Some are almost self-working, but others will take a lot of practice.

Us older magicians had to sift through tons of reading material to find the hidden gems of card magic, but now it's all out there on a set of DVDs for beginner's, such as yourself, to watch and learn.

Good luck with your magic,
Robert

Keep up the good work Jewels.

I didn't care much for the first trick.
Reasons being that it was too long and second that you could have had the camera hooked up to a TV and seeing the card there as you held it before the camera. That's one of those problems with videos and I'm not suggesting that this is what you did. Just that it's something that could be done.

The second trick is one I'm familiar with and you did it OK.
Maybe add a near miss and say something like, "I think this is a 4, a red one, not sure." show a 4 of hearts and continue.

Best to ya,

Nice job Jewels. I love to see guys with big egos who think they are the greatest magicians and know EVERYTHING about human nature get their ***** whacked off.

Hope you continue your interest and stay on the Café. The majority of the people here are friendly and helpful.

All right!!!
Seeing how I am the leader of the 'he' brigade...
Great work, and I humbly apologize.

I will be far more careful in the future about my opinions.
I don't ask for forgiveness, and will give no excuses for my actions... cept'ing that I was a jerk.

Nuff said!! Thanks for proving me wrong... and, no, it was not right for me to ask for proof. I was just looking out for people...

So, Good work! and, once again... sorry Smile

Hi Guys,

I want to say thanx to everyone who has helped me. I do appreciate every tiny or large bit of help you guys have given. I know I cant keep up with all the info, its a little overwhelming with everything else going on in my life right now.

I started a little bit over a month ago and I have to say, in this short period of time, I find that you guys deserve a lot of credit for what you do. I don't think people understand what really goes into performing magic. I know I didn't! the dedication you guys must have blows me away. I quickly looked at magic in a different way. My uncle was right when he told me in the beginning that it isn't tricks, but MAGIC! my learning here shows its the MAGICAL EXPERIENCE that matters for the AUDIENCE. This is just a part of what I've learned while being here on the Café', but, its probably the most important.

anyway, I don't know how much time I will have for magic anymore because I am so busy with school and the homework seems to come in truckloads. I am in cheerleading and that takes up a lot of time also. I will practice magic when I get the chance though. I still really like it, and its fun to do it for people.

my uncle also mentioned, along with others, that now I need to know the number that each card falls in the stack. omg, that will take forever, but I will follow thru when I have the chance to try and learn that also.

I'm so happy that the video cleared things up and put everyones minds at ease, especially mine. I know you guys were just being nice about the video. I know its really bad! but I wanted to show that I have the cards memorized pretty good, I did forget some along the way though. the table is all that's left from our flood last weekend, that's why my brother is sitting on the floor. LOL!

I will be back to talk to you guys from time to time. I'd like to hear how YOU are doing and what YOU are up to.

one more thing, I do accept everyones apology. this thing has just taken a lot out of me and I'm really tired and don't want to think about it any longer. Just glad it's over!

I will be taking the videos down sometime soon

thanx again everyone,
Jewels Smile

Hey Jules,
Just for kicks... leave them up!

So, I am assuming that the mem-deck stuff was the first video.
If so, here's a little advice. Don't look off camera when doing a video like that.

It kind of looks like you are getting queued.

Scody,

yes that was the 1st video. the reason I had my head turned was because this video was made on a mac and if I looked into the computer I would see the card on the screen in front of me. I still have a long way to go with it.

thanx for the advice though.

talk later,
jewels

Hi JP,
I've just joined TMC and stumbled onto your quite intriguing thread. I have been slowly progressing with my card magic over the last year and consider myself to be an absolute beginner.
I too have been learning from RRTCM, although I also have the DVD, as I seem to learn better with visual aids. I am extremely envious that you have a mentor in your uncle that seems to know his stuff.
I guess this next question is also for all the other members too. What is this card order memory process? I would also like to have this tool. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be grateful.
It seems your arrival has let some old timers reminisce about there early beginnings. For me you have inspired me to have more focus in what Im doing.
Keep up the schoolwork and practice.
Mim

Hey Opus- come to think of it, that question was pretty random.

hi mimix- I'm not to sure about it, my uncle just gave me cards to remember. people have told me different things about it, I just haven't had time to go thru everything that was sent. there's others that can help more than me for sure.

sorry I cant help more
