And that;s as far as I got. Good Sir, please format your posts to make them easier to read - then they will be. In the meantime, we don't have the stamina! Smile

Hi zorbinski,

I am interrested to read what you have to say, but I will admit it was hard to follow along with. It was still readable though. I don't think anyone is expecting proper grammar and correct spelling everytime, but little does help. Smile

Also, welcome aboard!

Ricardo-

The Great Smartini is right- and, yes it is sad, especially for those of us who remember how it used to be.

Regarding the trend I mentioned, perhaps I overstated as a result of personal experience. I bought Fiber Optics just weeks before Fiber Optics Extended came out. Then I went for Extreme Burn, and here comes Extreme Burn 2! Maybe, though, those are the only 2 and I am off in my comment.

I do agree that for 3 bills, it should come with some good presentation ideas...

Regards,

Jim

Showed my girlfriend the demo video. She thought the bag seemed fishy.. the way that it's handled...the placement of the container right on the end in a strange manner... thought that the bag was the secret. I don'tver share methods with her and this time I just showed the video and asked for first impresssions.

Paul Harris is a genius. Little Man looks great and will definitely entertain any audience. I still have no idea how it works. This effect presents so many possibilities for other routines as well. Those who are harshly critical of this need to give it a rest. Go Paul!

Hello Everyone

Just a head''s up that there are more Questions and Answers on my blog at the
PHP site. Go into the Shop and see it on the left hand column.

Also, a demo is in the works with a performance and audience reaction.

Someone mentioned the heart beat sound. Paul mentioned to me there may be something included that can be played on an MP3 player along with your performance.

I guess if it entertained every audience, you wouldn't have to ask people to stop dissing it.

Oops ,

You really have to learn to read the nuances of a thread.

The time for aggressively reacting to each other like barking dogs has well passed on this thread and people are generally at peace with the fact that others may hold a different opinion on the effect. There is therefore some proper balanced discussion going on...that is until you come on with your post designed just to wind folk up again.

"Paul Harris is a genius" - Bit of a redundant statement really as virtually everybody on the thread has acknowledged his contribition to magic - as ever the phrase Genius is thrown around too much- there are very few geniuses around.

"Little Man looks great and will definitely entertain any audience"- The phrase that's missing off the beginning of this is "I THINK", because this is your opinion not a statement of truth. You could add some value to your statement by adding on the end "BECAUSE......".

"I still have no idea how it works" - that's really good news as there are a ton of magic suppliers out there who specialise in producing effects for people who, despite practicing magic , seem to have no ability to come up with the slightest bit of creativity themselves- I call it the goldfish principle where no amount of knowledge ever seems to stick.

"Those who are harshly critical of this need to give it a rest."- I am not sure you can say anybody has been harshly critical and the rest of your post is just rude - hence my response.

As I said at the beginning , we are now into the balanced discussion side of the thread so, my aberration being the exception, it would be nice if we could keep it that way.

I think we should all be kind to "Little Man". After all, he just lost his great grandfather. Seriously Art Clokey, the creator of Gumby and Davey and Goliath, died Friday at the age of 88. He was definitely an "out of the box" thinker that inspired many others, perhaps some of us, to think the same way.

At long last I returned to the thread (after what seemed like a lifetime waiting for a demo video) and searched for said demo , found it , saved myself a packet ... if that's walking then I'm the next Latin-American Ballroom champion of the world.

I see that a new demo will be provided. I don't see many people actually complaining about the quality of the demo itself, or complaining it wasn't performed in front of an audience though. (two things the new demo will provide)

It was originally made very clear that a rough demo would be posted, and that's what we got, a rough demo. There are many other issues, and concerns that have been raised that have nothing to do with the demo not being performed in front of an audience.

I am thinking that having a better quality demo of Little Man performed in front of an audience may turn out to be counter productive by raising suspicion on the audience members choosen. (I have seen this happen with other demo's for other products, that's why I say that)

I have read posts in other threads where people have brought up the suspicion of audience members, and the suspicions that they were pre-arranged. Now, I'm not saying that will be the case with the new demo, but isn't there a good chance that that could happen in this case?

I personally don't think there was anything wrong with showing Little Man perform without an audience because I usually over look the audience when watching a demo anyways. I personally never judge a product by the audiences reactions in a demo.
