Thanks Jim!
When do we get to see a performance of the Hindu Thread? I'd love to take a peek!

Looking forward to it!

I've asked for a Flip camera for Christmas because the camera on my computer isn't the best for shooting my routines - it works but the lighting isn't very good and they come out grainy. Anyway I used the Flip when a friend and I shot a few of our flights in L.A. and Seattle, and the quality is great. Hopefully I'll have one of my own come Christmas day, and then I'll post a routine or two to prove I'm actually making progress Smile

To All:

It has been fun sharing magic with everyone this year! I, for one, have really improved my actual performance ability thanks to a commitment to practice a little each day. Thanks for your words of encouragement and positive feedback! You each have my best wishes for a wonderful holiday!

Same to you and everyone else here! I definitely can see that I've improved and advanced as a performer, thanks in no small part to the folks here on the Café.

Happy holidays!

Andrew

Dear Magic Friends,

This blog has been so important to my magic I have to throw out a big Thank You to everyone here. I started following last May working on sponge ball and in that short eight months, I've made more progress in really good magic than in the past 30 years! The inspiration I've gotten here caused me to sign up for magic lessons, focus on a few routines working them to perfection, and generally raising my game, rather than collecting lots of "weak effects".

All the best to each of you for a happy and successful 2011!

Hey Jim,

I may not check in regularly (although I always read this thread) but I do practice more often because of it. I'm still more into practicing several things in parallel but I am more mindful about it. This is a Great thread for me, Thanks for starting it.

To everyone else here now and in the past. You help me to remember that we are all on a journey and it's one with great scenery and fun along the way. Your efforts and growth inspire me (and prod me).

May all your practice be fruitful.

I always enjoy this period of grace between Christmas and New Year it's a great time to ruminate.

Happy New Year!

Mary, you are very kind.

I am about to head south for vacation, and the one thing I really wanted to get done was my Hindu Thread vid. Alas and alac, I just can not get it done in time. I really don't know what to say, as I doubt it will be good enough to apologize to anyone for NOT seeing it, but I am committed to getting it done when I return mid January. I will, Andrew, honest!

Taking my thread, ropes, shells, cards, with me, as I plan to do some busking on the docks. That should be good for a few stories...

Meanwhile everyone keep up the practice- I intend to get in a lot of work on routines, as well as my busking act.

Whadja' all get for Christmas? I got Extractor, and almost cry to leave it at home, but that is the only thing that makes sense. That one is a great utility... really!

Happy New Year!

Hello all,

Sorry for my absence. I have not had anything to target of recent so I have been practicing with some sleights and a few items suggested to me from my childhood mentor of magic. However, I wanted to wish you all a magical New Year and hope to have something to focus on worth sharing in the near future. I have appreciated all your kind and professional suggestions. Actually I have taken on a current project of sharing a small routine with a youth from my church who wishes to perform in a talent / variety show at an upcoming Youth Retreat. That has been fun. Happy New Year everyone!

Pete

I picked up an oversized brandy snifter at Michael's while I was in the states for Christmas...however, I wasn't about to bring it all the way back to the UK with me where it would most likely get broken in transit, so while I'll keep working on the 3 ball trick (I picked up some nice wooden ones to work with at home) I'm going to focus on my cups and balls at the moment. It's definitely a work in progress, and actually comes from the work of someone else, but once I've learned this routine and am performing it to the best of my ability, I'll start working on my own version. I'm not usually into performing someone else's stuff but I just enjoy this one too much. Hoping to have a video ready to share in the next couple of weeks!

Happy new year to everyone Smile

'Scuse the double folks- posted from Puerto Vallarta and have no idea what happened. Hope everyone is following thru with the short practice sessions. I got in some good practice in PV as well as one performance. I am tentatively booked for next year for some shows in the schools. Need to really work on my Mexican language skills as well as my routines.

I think one could make a good living busking in PV. I plan to try it next year, provided it is legal. Got to look into that...

Be well and warm...

Jim

p.s. Dang, I can't believe MagiFest is next week! Anyone going to be there??

I hear that, Jim! I don't wanna brag but I was trapped at Heathrow in the snow for about 12 hours, so I had a few opportunities to do some performing in a gorgeous climate myself.
Hoping for some nasty weather again next year. Strolling isn't necessary - in fact it isn't even possible. We were crammed in there like sardines.
Made for an interesting "Sawing a Stewardess in Half" routine.
