I have to say, this version of 3 Fly (at least when I've seen others perform it) has never fooled me. It's always come across as rather obvious when I've seen it.

I still prefer Mark Mason's excellent "Come Fly With Me." The coins literally melt from one hand to another...

However, I do think it too may involve an elephant...I just haven't seen it yet.

All kidding aside, I also love Magic Geek's site. I wish all on-line magic shops had this delightful sense of wonder in their presentations.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

I enjoyed all of the vids I've seen. I think that what some previous posters are responding to might just as easily be consigned to "style". We don't all come across as a Copperfield, a Ballantine, or a Slydini. (Three of the most different examples I can think of!)

This guy’s shtick is Geek. And he's good at it. Smile


Well... geek is an overloaded term and I use the old definition... Chris Angel is geek. Or was.
This guy I guess is nerd. If it works for you, well, de gustibus non disputantum est.

You know what? You're right, Cyberqat! (I can remember when gay meant happy). A geek used to be something completely different than what it is today. Words change. I posted something to another forum (long time ago) including a direct quote from one of Aesop's Fables. The word faggot (for bundle of sticks) was bleeped, and I'll bet many here can remember when it was a cigarette.

Anyway, today I think most folks think of a geek as someone who's spent to much time behind a computer. (But it also amuses me to think of Chris Angel in the other sense!) Smile
...what if I could read your mind?

I like the Magic Geek guy, I love to watch the videos. I love his multiplying bottle routine.
However, with the eye of a magician, I know when he is in a "dirty" position, it sometimes shows a bit in his body language. I doubt that laymen would pick up on this. But, again, this may be part of his style. I don't mean to be overly critical about this. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into making all these videos.

I think Chris is hilarious, and I recently discovered that his sister, Miranda, is also very funny.
She is the one with the new magic kit.

All in good fun.
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

One thing I like about Magic Geek is that their site so well organised and customer friendly, which can't be said about many of the online magic shops.
There's also enough info about every effect they sell, even excluding the videos. In many sites there's the products name, prize and maybe the picture, but nothing else. If something catches my eye, but I'm not sure what that effect does and I have to find out myself, I'm not going to buy it.

I fully agree with all you guys. In fact I have ordered from them about three times. BTW, just for the fun of it I bought a nice yoyo from them, I have been entertained for hours Smile!
