Am I the only one that wasn't that blown away by Illumin8? Perhaps I'd need to see it in person....


I wasn't really blown away by Illumin8 either. Wait...nevermind! Smile
It really does have to be something seen in person to appreciate the potential. The fact that the spectators can have a keepsake sent to their phone or even email address to show them what they got to experience is one of the main reasons why I perform Illumin8.

@ MichaelGristMagic Sorry, and I realize that this is way off topic and something I would not ordinarily ask, but I'm totally confused by your signature; "Magic is propar class like hew!"? Just what does it mean, or am I missing something? I'm just curious, and it wouldn't be the first time for me that something went over this old head of mine. Smile

Lol its fine mate only a few people will probably understand it and that's mainly people from newcastle, England. 'Propar class like hew' is a 'geordie' term for something that's awesome or amazing. People from Newcastle only really say it and its kind of a funny term you'll only really understand if you live in England or visited newcastle. Hope it kind of makes sense lol Smile

Most people IN England don't understand the Geordie accent. In fact I know people from Newcastle who don't even understand each other. When I moved out here, people in the states said, "At least you're moving to a country where they speak the same language!" I had an easier time in Russia than I do here...I had to call BT to cancel my Internet service last week, and I'm not sure if I ended up canceling the service or accepting a part time internship with the guy on the phone.

Luckily, Michael is one of the easier ones to understand around here!

Thanks, I had the distinct feeling that it might possibly have something to do with British terms, and or phraseology etc. I believe it was George Bernard Shaw who said; “Two countries separated by a common language.”? There are also certain terms/ words/accents and expressions in the U.S. that can vary from state to state. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of a “Geordie” accent, but evidently it’s well known!

Priceless Gaffed.
Here is another transatlantic accent situation from the Geordie next door neighbours.

Well known - yes.
Well understood - not at all.

I remember when Greg Wilson was out here, he was listening to guys talking in the magic shop and laughing his face off; he SWORE they were all from another country.

also with 'Behaviour Patterns the numbers on the pages are left unjustified.. you make a deal about them.. but it doesn't play into the ending revelation


On the other hand, they introduce a bit of a "sucker" effect into the trick. They tie in with the first revelation (barely), which isn't such an amazing revelation, and has you thinking "hmmm, is that all? Kinda weak." Which sets you up to really get nailed by the second revelation, perhaps more so than if the performer went straight for the card in the envelope.
