I have faced a series of sleepless nights thanks to Jay Are and the withdrawing of Split Realty (both versions) from the market at of January 31. I understand it is his way of limiting the publications to serious magicians -- although offered visa PDF at a reasonable price. My issue was raising money to afford even the meager price he has been offering it at -- whilst having to offer my props from straight magic for sale to save my home.

Needless to say the magical community buying the props and Jay opened a way to get these legally and openly... avoiding the the moral taint of piracy (even if among friends) and to allow me to sleep at night if asked how I got them.

But, you say, this story is about sleepless nights. And, well it is.

Because -- when I received the manuscripts I could not put them down. I blew past my next two bedtimes reading and working with them.

This is exactly the motivation I needed to adapt the OTTW principle in like manner using the manuscripts as a guide. The last piece is chillingly on target -- and put with the crayons and/or inkblots --- mmmmm - delicious for seances performed while sitting down. Exactly the medicine my overpriced MDs ordered.

I cannot thank the author enough for the thoughtfulness.

Hmmm - just think a split reality between Kangaroo People and Wallaby people -- or types of brew -- lol.

CHMARA!

Glad I could help another performer out!

I am also glad you enjoy SR!

It is only available for another 22 days -- and then it vanishes forever.

My finger hung over the paypal button and I could feel the dizziness enveloping my very soul as I heard myself exude a squeeky: "Help!" and heard my wife racing along the hall and crash into the lounge where she bit into my finger with her fangs, tearing me away from said potential purchase.
Sorry but I have so much stuff, all excellent I'm sure(ahem), that I purchased over the Xmas period and probably won't even have the time to glance at for a month or so.
So... I made my wife a promise: "Ok, I promise Snowgoose", that I'd buy nothing more until I'd read and absorbed what I have. She's not a cruel woman, but can be quite loud at times, which makes my right eye twitch like Inspector Dryfuss and I get a sicky type feeling in the pit of my stomach that makes me want to scream!
There must be many others out there such as I. So, I don't think this is the best time of the year to put closing dates on great ideas. I'd strongly recommend a re-think, in order to get even more 'serious magicians' in on this. Trust me, it would be a very wise move. I am very wise. This is my... suggestion. A suggestion that should be adhered to.
Happy New Year.

Hey Bobser!

Thank you for your input -- with all of the respect in the world I am afraid I can not take your advice.

The wheels have been put in motion and SR is gone at the end of January.

All the best!

Ok ok. lemme think!!! Would you accept a slightly stained 'Reality is Plastic' by Anthony Jacquin? He's very good.

I'd watch the clock on this one! SR is brilliant. When an effect's only drawback is people might think you are "simply" demonstrating a real phenomenal you know it is good!

Mr Bill!

Thank you sir!

It is true -- most people that see this accept it as a real phenomena...

Interesting reaction to say the least, very strong.

I recieved an email about the SR B&W as well...

This is the bizzare package with all new photos, and new routines ( including my Remote Viewing Demo ) This will dissapear as well.

Best!

It is included in SR B&W...

Just ask Bill!

When you get it Luke, good luck finding the hidden gem! When you give up maybe I'll tell you! Actually, knowing you, you'll probably catch it right away. B & W is another brilliant adaptation of SR that gets away from one or two elements that I actually love but others might not in the original. Specifically the "risk" that you are simply demonstrating a true brain function, for one. And a lot spookier this way too!

I just got SR and love the premise and presentation.

Is there anything you guys do to help cloak the method and make it more transparent? The method seems so fundamentally obvious given the back and forth showing of photos. Any presentation advice to help keep the method downplayed?

One question - what is SR B&W? I have the SR from outlaw effects. SR B&W is a different variation of this in a more bizarre and paranormal light? Where can I find this?

I would suggest not going 1 back to the other. Show 3 or 4 to one person show a couple to the other. bounce around. "Shuffle" things up. That to me more than does it.

Yeah I thought about a mixed pattern instead of 1 back and forth.

But even with that, any more ideas to cloak it?

I thought about taking a few where I would normally switch to the other person, to ask person 1 if they want to discard or pass it to person 2? just kind of another layer of distraction...

mixed pattern plus that distraction... add in dialogue to throw off timing of it all...

id like to hear what the rest of you think regarding the method and concealment of it...
