Cool.

I want to see the routine from start to finish. I am confused on why I can't find anyone performing this magic trick. I do plan on buying but does seeing the whole routine actually give it away?

No it doesn't, but why would you want to do the routine exactly as Craig? You would want to learn his routine just to learn all the moves with the gaff but personally I cut out a few phases and altered another few to fit my own personal style (and native language).

Not trying to be rude, all I'm saying is that if you are on the fence and have seen the demo, the full routine won't tip the scales for you. Smile

On another note I can definately recommend that you get this. Not for Craigs routine but for the possibilities of routining on your own. Smile

And then there were the old days….
Not even that long ago, but before YouTube.

--You ordered from a Magic Catalogue.
--There was a short paragraph describing the prop.
--There was maybe a small line drawing of the prop.
--And when you bought it, whatever it was,
--it was non-returnable.
No, I’m of course not saying lets go back there! No.

But, why do some magicians feel a sense of entitlement?
Think they need/deserve to see a whole routine,
or presentation, or demonstration, maybe hints at method.
That’s giving away half the fun, and half the value.

Research. Like here on the Café, or on My Lovely Assistant.
Visit a shop, if there’s one near you.
Find out what you can, and then jump in and take the risk.
The same goes for books.
Books, that make you imagine, think, create, not be spoon fed,
far more exciting and challenging, than a DVD or Download ever could.

For instance: There’s a preview download of my book on the publisher’s site.
You don’t know how many people griped, yelled, and whined.
They wanted to read half the content, and learn half the effects.
Then, just maybe, buy the book. I just didn’t get it.

Some things, not a lot, but a few,
were more fun to explore in those old days.

And so ends my 3,000th rant on the Café—

Spellbinder and lundonia,

Great points and thanks for your professional advice and pov.
My order is already put in. I guess I just like to see different routines for tricks that I will be performing. You know, to customize my own routine.

It's unfortunate we still have to deal with "kids" on this forum with their smart remarks.

Hey Walt,

Great post, you made me laugh. I remember there were three major catalogues, Abbotts, Tannens and U.F. Grant, that's what you ordered from. Like you said, it had a little stick drawing of the trick, and if it sounded and looked good, you bought it in hopes it would be good. Sometimes it was, and other times it was "what a piece of crap".

If that was directed at me, Jerde, my post was a joking remark directed at Walt's post -- not at anything you said.

Frenchdrop.

I 100% apologize, I thought you were accusing me.

After reading so much in the last 4 years I jumped the gun.

Sorry.
