DESCRIPTION from Imagine Magic
http://www.imaginemagic.org/Product--Taste-Buds.html
____________________
Taste Buds.

Taste.Buds is an impromptu effect. No gimmicks involved throughout the entire effect.
Taste.Buds is built around an easy to do method, which is 100% foolproof.

Show five ordinary or even borrowed Styrofoam cups, and poor a little drink into each of the cups. Put a lid onto the cups. Each cup has a different drink in it. When the magician turns his back, the spectator will drink from one of the cups. The magician turns back around and immediately knows what drink the spectator has just drunk.


Important Notes:

• You never handle the cups as the liquid is being poured in
• The cups can be borrowed
• NO gimmick, no marking
• NO fishing
• NO Psychology
The method is undetectable to the untrained eye.

This is TASTE.BUDS

$8.95 - Instant Download - Ebook
______________________________________

After reading the PDF for Taste.Buds, I feel Drew has something good going with this effect. It is a fun effect that allows the magician to "get into the mind" of the spectator. It also involves them in the trick, and the very reason they believe their choice is undetectable is the reason it can be instantly known. The ebook is short and sweet at about 12 pages but covers all the bases you need to know to do the trick and Drew has even included a brief "Taste" of his own patter, although he encourages you to come up with your own. It is a unique trick that I believe I will be doing when the time arises. It is fun and worth the money. Check it out, Matt Sconce

I liked it very much !!!

Before I read it I thought I knew what I would find in it. But I was wrong, the method was different from anything I might have expected.

Here I made a more detailed Overview about the effect:

Got a 404 error on the link Matt posted, but this one works.

And here's the link to order the download, which isn't instant but is only $4.00.

Looks interesting. I ordered, but still waiting for them to accept payment and send the download even though it says it's an instant download.

I had a conversation with Drew and the oficial price is 10 USD.

Taste.Buds is worth a lot more than 10 USD!

Why not settle on a price before making something available for purchase? It's $8.50, no it's $4, I changed my mind now it's $10.....

Regardless, I placed my order from Imagine Magic at the $4 price advertised, expecting an instant download since that is also what was advertised. I still haven't received it, hopefully it will be sent soon.

I see that there is now a 404 error on the first link I posted, but the second link for purchasing the pdf (for $4) is still working. Not sure what is going on but hope it gets cleared up soon.

Drew has contacted me and has gone above and beyond to make up for the situation. We still aren't sure what happened, seems there was a glitch somewhere in the system. Good customer service, thanks Drew.

I haven't had a chance to give it a good read, but after a quick glance through it I would give this a thumbs up.

Actually the real creator of this type of routine is Bobby Mota, who released his professional stand up routine with Promystic. This is a cheap rip off with no credit. When I asked J Prager about it, his response was $1400 vs $10

Really classy... Not

Good Day Looch!

I have a question regarding this. Does it consider a rip off if the presentations are alike? Unless you are talking about the method is the same which I highly doubt so for the difference in price.

Looch, I wonder why do you think that performers can be owners of premises?

Of methods, obviously, and that deserves respect in a legal or ethic way, but if this is a different methodology I don't see the problem with that.

Is it supposed to have the exact same presentation as Motta's one?
Only their huge difference in methods makes me higly doubt that they can be identical as effects.

I contacted Jose about this today and have just received an email that he is taking steps to resolve this issue. I agree with Looch, Bobby should have been contacted (and perhaps he was) requesting permission to release this routine. At the very least permission should have been gained to use the base routine for this effect and proper crediting should have been added to the eBook. One of my biggest concerns was that this release appears to have piggy backed on the marketing efforts of Bobby Motta in regards to the .taste logo. Using a similar typeface and the "dot" in the logo is somewhat deceptive. Jose was unaware of this when it was added to his site.

I'm sure that Jose will resolve this soon.

Sir:
You have been told WRONG!
So let me provide you with real information:

1) A different handling and method of an effect is not a rip off, this is the case with this manuscript.
2) Proper Credit is given in the Manuscript, obviously you do not own the manuscript yet, whomever told you that there is no credit given to Mr. Motta, that person told you wrong!
3) Neither the routine, effect, handling nor method are the same from Bobby Mota, never the less due of the respect to other creators the right credit is clearly mentioned in the Pdf.

True. However it is always polite to obtain permission from a creator who has previously released an EXTREMELY similar routine, wouldn't you agree?

Quote:

Incorrect. The PDF has no crediting whatsoever for Bobby Motta's .taste (and I do have a copy).

Again, there was no credit in the original PDF, but of course that could have been changed by now.

So, Looch is correct and unfortunately my friend you are wrong. I also notice that you didn't address how identical the two logos are. Rather sneaky if you ask me. Again this is no reflection upon mindshocks but on the creator himself.

No need to attack Jose regarding this, he didn't create and market the effect; he is purely offering the creator a place to host it. I had similar issues like this when running imentalism. And as stated above Jose is attempting to sort this out with the creator.
