Anything on cold reading. Juliann Moore's stuff is top class. That combined with a good centre tear. Richard Osterlind or Lee Earle have good centre tears on DVD.

Perhaps combining a one-ahead system with a center tear would be good. Divine one... destroy it... move onto the next; atleast that's how the spectators would see it.

I call myself "Thomas Cooper" here because this stops the magic café appearing when people google my stage name.

Does anyone else find the term "Special User" to be a bit condescending?

Annemann - "A Day in the Life". A vast number of billet tests can be presented as a one on one Q&A.

Basil's routine is very nice. Glad I do not see many do it...in my area.

Don't forget working with a pendulum. A pen, paper, pendulum and the gift of gab will do nice. MASTER a SYSTEM or two and you will know what to say to ANYONE.

Docc Hilford´s Personal Touch
My own I.D.S. idea from Mysteries Anywhere works great in this case of scenarios. I use my billet sequence for personal Q&A in the past and is a very direct approach.

Question for experts:

I have NEVER done a Q&A so I want some help on this matter. But my thoughts are when you do a personal Q&A your standards don't need to be as high effect wise. For example I might do an effect where I guess someones birth month using a s***i; whereas normally I never would because that action isn't justified (why don't I just tell them their birth month?).

I think that if you have a person already in your 1vs1 Q&A, you are much "freer", agree or disagree?


Can I just say I am very happpy to be over-ruled on this; I honestly don't know much about this subject, I know very little about Q&A and so if I am totally wrong on this please feel free to say so. I would be very happy to learn about close-up Q&A if someone wants to PM me. Just asking Smile

Look up my post from the review on 'Q' Quantum Connection for a nice kicker. The best close-up 'no frills' version of Q & A that I've come across is in James L. Clark's Easy to Master Close-up mentalism Vol. 2. It's perfect for casual performances and super-easy to execute. Trust me, I've probably read all of the various versions and most of the time simplicity is best the way to go!

Why not just have her ask her question and you answer it? No need to do an effect. If you really insist on a prop, show her how to use a pendulum, but IMO, even that's not necessary.

Well, you could do that. But "there's not trick to it." I agree, but if he needs a toy, why not the Annemann close up reading thing with the gaffed e******e?

Forget the mentalism effects and learn how to read the tarot. #Perfect one-to-oe Q&A. Stunning..!

Q4U2 number 1 & 2 on the Roy DVD are quite good as well.
