Then we can form a club of financially irresponsible cups folks. Last year, I sprung for a set of Sherwoods. Hard to believe one can finance buying a set of cups... Smile

I hope you will post a video link, Andrew!

I'm working on the Guernsey cow bit with 2 cups right now.

Working on the routine now! It's been a lot of fun.

Those cups are on my list, Jim. I have his nickel-plated ones but those engraved cups are beauties....

They are worth the wait, Andrew! 'Cept, I am afraid to use them. I totally busted a Sherwood cup a few years gone, and the trauma remains...

Yeah I do Kent Gunn's routine and I still can't manage to toss 'em in the air like he does. I'm not coordinated enough/employed enough to handle the consequences of dropping one.

I've been working some more on my cups and balls with the mini cups I picked up from RNT2. I'm fairly happy with my progress and overall hope to have it finished in the next week or two. I spent a good amount of time in the library at the castle yesterday (yeah that's right, I got ditched on Easter so decided to go to the castle) working on the routine and am having a lot of fun with it.

I've also been playing around with a Triumph routine that my good buddy Chris Piercy shared with me. It's a killer and I performed it last night, and ta-da, they loved it! Or were fooled anyway. I'm not very entertaining but as long as they go, "wait, how did you do that?" who cares. I'm only in it to make their eyeballs fall out of their heads.

Hudson - do you ever get out to see Suzanne perform? We hung out last week and she's such a blast to be around.

Andrew - I did not get to see Suzanne, but I will! I'm in Omaha most of the time now (job move) and only get back to Minneapolis about one weekend a month. I did get to New York this weekend and visited Tannen's - first time I've been there, so that was fun.

I've been working on coins - continuous production and copper/silver transposition. I'm okay on these, just need work to get very smooth. Next up is Amazing Jumoing Knot (Pavel) . It is on Daryl's DVD set and just amazing.

Quick question - is there a trick to uploading a photo? I tried but was not successful. Size limit?

Yes, there's a size limit if you're trying to attach a photo to your post. If you have the photo hosted at an external site that provides an url for the photo, you can embed it into your post without the size limit restriction. I find photobucket a good resource for this- they provide the IMG code you can copy/paste into your post here at the Café and the photo will appear somewhat magically. Smile It's free to sign up there, FWIW.

Well, finished my last Titanic gig, what a fun time to do such a thing! Sad to put everything away.

Next week I switch, as am doing a performance which will be essentially card magic. This will be the first time I have performed with just one type of magic. It will be quite mixed, no "pick a card" but rather an attempt to put some magic back into cards. Wish me well, friends...

Hey, get to practicing! Summer busking is just around the corner!!!!

What exactly was the Titanic thing, Jim? I've been meaning to ask you. I'm a huge Titanic buff - I read the books, see the movies and TV specials, go to the museum exhibits, and am building a submarine in my garage out of old packing crates so that I may visit the site of the wreckage.

Andrew-

It was an extravaganza totally on the 100th anniversary of the sinking. The only magic was my version of "White Star" which was very well received.

We had many pictures, facts, little known stories, etc. Showed the vid of the Lost Movies of the Titanic, several photo albums of actual pics, much of Father Browne's remarkable photo album and much more.

Had a dinner from the April 14th 1912 first class dinner menu, including Punch Romaine and chicken lyonnaise. I baked "cabin biscuits" which were on the lifeboats and we had special chocolate eclairs and french vanilla ice cream as dessert.

We had 6 people who had roles as people on the ship, each telling the story from their perspective. Very moving. Also had renditions of what the orchestra played that evening.

It also gave me an excuse to buy a beautiful 32" model of the Titanic with all of the detail. I have been captured by the Titanic since my early years, and it has not abated much thru the years. Sometimes I feel I may have been on that ship... weird, no?

I am leaving for Mexico for about 10 days, but when I get back, if you are interested I can send you some pics...

I would love to see photos! And am jealous of the model. I would love to have one.

So what exactly is the White Star routine?

The White Star is from Jim Critchlow, and is based upon Out Of This World. The magician deals out a dozen or so photo cards (face shots of men and women from the early 1900's) to spec #1, and they choose which images they want to keep, and which they want to discard. Then, a second spec is dealt the same. When they are turned up, each has chosen either all who perished on the Titanic or all who did not. I have some major changes if you ever decide to do this routine and would gladly share with you.

Good to hear from you, Andrew! KEEP WELL.

Sounds interesting! That's a neat and horribly depressing concept Smile I'd be interested to hear your presentation on it.

I'm flying to Seattle in a few hours to do a kids show which should be fun. Totally unprepared but let's be honest, kids never have a clue anyway. It'll be hilarious.

I've been thrown into situations like that and find them rather interesting to do. I always keep cards, coins, rope, etc. available and am myself amazed at how things just come to mind once you are "on". Occasionally, the hardest part is remembering to stop before the hook comes out.

Good luck on your show, Andrew!
