You make some very good points there. most of which are the same reasons I prefer to use the alternate handling method described on the dvd.

What does his dress have to do with anything. Perhaps this is what helps him with his success. He wouldn't look good in a three piece suit would he?

This is a demo. I think we have to acknowledge Luke's success. What ever got him there and keeps him there is what we have to accept, certainly can't deny it.

Look at Keith Richards. He dresses like a gypsy. He is a gypsy. He works out of a trunk. Clothing isn't his strong suit, it's playing guitar and writing songs and we'll have to accept his success as well. Perhaps one day you may see him on an off gig. Still have to accept and acknowledge his success overall.

It's these character traits that make a performer who he/she is.

Luke is offering you his routine. Now you can take it and make it incredible. You don't have to wear a crummy belt buckle or dress as a homeless person. You can dress anyway you want. You don't have to explain these things like he did you can explain them in your wonderful, exquisite prophetic way. He offers a template. Do you like the template? Use it. Don't like it, change it around.

I think it's cool. I may even dress homeless and perform for homeless. But the tats I can do without.

I like this routine alot. It's one of the best items I've purchased from Luke.

What Luke offers here is invaluable for someone looking to string several simple, organic effects together into a coherent routine. You can set up a rather impressive performance using just some business cards, and extend it with cold reading. No expensive electronics required. I seriously doubt he intends his quirky dress, accent, and dialogue to be taken as essential. The man has a tremendous stage presence and people enjoy watching him. But there isn't much to be gained (for most of us) trying to mimic that part of his performance. Stick to the routine itself.

This is the WORST DVD I've ever purchased....If you want one I'll sell you mine. Be prepared ... He calls little ol' tea leaf readers SCUMBAGS!!!!! He says the majority of all readers are SCUM. Then he says he's much better than all of them by doing a revelation from 7 marked cards..... Really???????
I've never seen a "reader" use business cards and limit their reading to 7 emotions.... So how could Luke Jermay be better than them if that's NOT WHAT THEY DO?
This would make me ROTHLMAO if it wasn't so offensive.
There are less than 20 people in the audience, so you can see the overall popularity of this performer.
It's pretty low to call old ladies and tarot card readers SCUM over and over again... (then say "I'm better than them ad infinitum") I found it 100% distasteful.
If you don't care .. then I'll sell you this fiasco for $15.....
Luke has my number ... He can call me or reply here if he disagrees ..... I can't believe he is selling a fortune telling book using playing cards and now tarot after calling all these people SCUM ...

Slim, I will buy it. I'm not being a smart tail. You offered. Where I can send the money? I love Jermay's work, but won't debate you on your point. I realize that when a man feels something, he just feels it. Peace, and when are you going to Roshambo me?

I think this is a wonderful DVD and very powerful routine. Luke shows about 3 or 4 different performances of it ranging from stage to close up. It showcases just how powerful the "one @&$!d" is.

It's clear that you have some problems with Luke (which is fine). However, I don't think anyone could argue his success and wonderful showmanship, and the lessons that are to be learned from that alone (of which can be seen on this exact DVD. Luke has brought some amazing things to our art and we should all be very thankful for that.

His recent Penguin lecture was simply one of the best.

All the best,
Matthew

Very good quality DVD, good tips on reading.

Slim should finally chill out a bit, he is starting to ridicule himself.

I would never support anyone who calls little old ladies SCUMBAGS .....
I have no problem with Luke other than him disrespecting peoples belief systems and saying "I just do it better" every other sentence. Besides .. He doesn't...... The most unimpressive DVD I've ever paid for.
I will give you the contact information and donate the money to my favorite pub. Smile

Dave:

I reviewed this product when it came out, and was less than happy with my purchase.

But during the recent Penguin lecture in his conversation with Dan, Luke commented on that period of his life, and it cast the whole thing in a new light. Also, EI was filmed when he was still in his early/mid twenties. People grow and mature, thoughts change. I know I am not the same person I was, when I was in my twenties.

I totally understand Tony. Several of my friends were raving about Luke. I'd had dealings with him before and I wasn't impressed, so I purchased the first DVD I saw in the for sale section here on the Café. When I watched it I was stunned no one had taken Luke to task for calling all of these little old ladies SCUMBAGS!!!!! Plus there was absolutely nothing new on the DVD .. In addition the Cold Reading was horrid. There were only 20 people at the most in the audience and I thought the entire thing as low budget as you could get if you were videoing one of your prize pieces. Seven marked cards with pre-selected emotions ... And then during the reading part he fumbled and muddled around to get the emotion .. as if we didn't know that HE"D written them down himself and there were only SEVEN of them to remember ... just amateurish at best.

Psychic readers don't guess what is on written cards! That's not what they do.

So how is Luke Jermay doing ANYTHING better than a Psychic Reader????... They don't do marked card tricks.....

And thanks for your post Tony!!!!

LUKE is Luke. Take his what you do like with his awesome strengths. I love the guy. I respect the guy. I don't like everything but none of use like everything about everyone.

I support him by purchasing his stuff. I don't use it all. I use some but the thinking is what I like to see.

I enjoyed EI... Luke's way of thinking has definitely helped me progress in the right direction, I think. I got a great deal from the DVD. It's been a while since I watched it and performed EI but it's definitely in my arsenal.
