I just answered the two questions from the "tell us what you think" section.
Can we see statistics of them?
Thanks!

Answered the questions, but could really of chosen most of the options, so I'll go through a few more points here.

A pendulum forum, would be nice, don't know how much people will use it from my experience of specialist magic forums. But it won't do any harm to give it a go.
Pendulum books and resources and routines would be great. Even with a good number of publications recently they are still relatively untapped in comparison to other tools in the mentalists arsenal.

Contests and activities will help give the ideas going and encourage creativity, so I'm all in favour. Doubt I'd ever win anything, but if it encourages people to try and come up with good routines it will serve a purpose.

As for the pendulum itself. It would be nice to keep cost down, but don't mind paying more for something that is as beautiful as the ones pictured. Speedy delivery would be nice, but having ordered from outlaw I will wait for good quality props. Personally I'm not as bothered about one of a kind as if I want that I have and will continue to make my own.

Hey, David--great first update!

Those who signed up will know what I mean. Those who haven't should.

Can't wait for the site to go live!

I grabbed "Dark Promise" as soon as I saw it on the website. Love at first sight. My Witches Amanac/Ipswich routine just got a major shot in the arm.

Thanks David and best of luck on a much-needed resource!

HOLY CRAP !!!
I clicked on your Banner David, and HOLY CRAP ! The pendulums I saw were totally Beautiful !
I read the list of some of the others to be unveiled without the pictures! You are a TEASE ! Smile
These are a work of ART!
I am going to add a request for a special pendulum here and now!
I want you and Sheree to make me the "DARKEST most BEAUTIFUL" pendulum you guys can come up with!
Just like a long dark haired beautiful woman! Beauty with Danger !
I want you guys to make it a "ONE OF A KIND" ! That is the first purchase of what I am sure will be many !
We have talked in the past,and I am sure you know of my liking of the Spooky !
Let me know when it is done,I am already excited about her !!!
Now Bro...can you fix me up with what I request ??? Ah,Hell I know you can!
When you get it, just send me the bill my friend!

Thanks in advance,
Gary

Boy! You guys make me feel SO good! Thank you.

To answer the questions and comments:

1) I'd be delighted to share the results of the "Spiffy Two Question Poll," Mind Magic. We've had 18 responses since yesterday and with reference to what people MOST want from the site: 37.5% want routines for pendulums, 31.3% want Quality Pendulums, 18,5% wanted Books and resources and 12.5% were most interested in a Forum. With reference to what people want MOST in a pendulum: 50% want a beautiful Pendulum, 31.3% want a "one of a kind," and 18.8% want to keep the costs down. I'll post the continuing results here if you like! I think there maybe a way to turn the results live...which I will do as soon as I can figure it out. Smile

2) Merkur and Andre: You guys have awesome taste. I'm glad you are as excited about getting the pendulums as we were about making them!

3) Gary (Godzilla)...you make me smile! Geez, fella. I read your request to Sheree and she got a certain look in her eye. It scared me...just a little. Then she went off to her design table and closed the door. She never closes the door...

Our plan really is simply to try to create one central website that deals specifically with pendulums and serves the whole performing community. That's it.

I think it would be very cool to have ONE place where you can get questions answered and share ideas -- find resources and props! That's it. With a groundswell of support like this I'm feeling pretty good about it.

We're right on target for the grand opening on September 1st...as long as I don't sleep between now and then. Smile

David, does Sheree only have one eye...Or ,does she have both and got a certain look in her eyes ? Smile
I love it when a woman gets a certain look in their eyes...and it scares me a little too!

Knock on the door and check on her every now and then!...don't let her get pulled away into the total DARKNESS !!!

Thank you for getting on this so quickly! Take all the time that is needed my friend!
And,please extend my appreciation to Sheree !
I anxiously await !

People are interesting, huh? Lots of you have responded to our Spiffy Two Question Poll and it seems that 38.1% of you are looking for Routines as the number one thing of interest. 23.8% of you want to get Pendulums. 19% are interested in books and 14.3% are interested in the forum.

With reference to the pendulums themselves: 47.6% of you want "beautiful pendulums." 23.8% want to "keep the costs down." Another 23.8% want "One of a Kind" pendulums and just under 5% want custom pendulums made.

Hmmm.

I've been surprised at the results -- surprised enough that I'm really glad the question was asked. This kind of information is molding the site's design. If we want MP to be an actual service to the performing community (and we do...)then it has to be what you want it to be. Thank you very much to those of you who responded. It's appreciated.

David

Just revisited the site ! Check out the 'Dragonfire' Pendulum in the "Don't look here" !
Very ,Very different one of a Kind ! (WOW) They are putting out some very original pieces !

I can't wait to see what David and Sheree ,come up with for me !!! Smile

David, would it be possible to maybe have a picture of front,back and side of pendulums added to site ?
I know this would be allot of extra work...but would love to see more of the pendulum !

Thank-G

Isn't it time to tempt us with another sneak peek, David? (Or are you afraid of selling out of pendulums before you even open?)

A sneak peek?

Hmmm. Let me just say that the teeth of a prehistoric shark...millions of years old...makes a dandy bob. And pendulums infused with actual fragments of dinosaur bones...I mean ACTUAL dinosaurs...are on the way. (I just think all that is TOO cool. Want to talk one of a kind?)

We're in Drumheller right now. I just did a looooooong walkabout gig while Sheree went shopping. Pretty pooped...but I have to say that some of these new props...are so seriously amazing. I mean how do you get an element more powerful than a freakin' DINOSAUR? Sorry...a little loopy and pretty tired.

Time to say goodnight, Gracie.

Good night, Gracie.

I'm also very happy to have participated in this project. Finally got to check out the book and its wonderful contributions. You'll find all sorts of routines there, from impromptu material to bizarre magick experiences. David's writing style is very entertaining too, his story on why pendulums rock was enjoyable to read and reminded me of how strong the experience our clients and spectators feel can be. The pendulums are simply beautiful, I really look forward to checking out the complete collection on that site once it launches in a few days.

The routine I contributed is very easy and focuses on letting the spectators experience the power of their intuition successfully with a pendulum. I also explain several variations to take the effect in different directions depending on your performing style. More importantly, at the end I talk about a common problem many people experience when working with pendulums. What if it doesn't move? I take care of that in my write up and I'm sure many people will find great value in reading that part alone.
