Finally got it, the Michael's cal-endar addition is awesome, altough can't really find an adroid app that would work with it.
If someone knows one I would greatly appreciate a pm.

As to the whole routine, it's way better then the first one. I didn't like the first one all that much but this will probably be my new opener.


Both the Kenton and Calender additions are amazing!

The first one was very difficult to do smoothly much the point that I had to really work it to get it to a nice fashion Smile

Now with this one it is a breath of fresh air! I feel it has made things so much simpler giving me more chance to present (which is what I felt the first lacked slightly).

Jeff, I'll keep you up to date!

Glad you are enjoying Cal-ender Smile

If you have an Android there is an iphone calculator available to download which has the same beautiful flaw that allow this to work!

Feel free to pm me if you have any questions!

Best Wishes Michael Smile

Is this for the stage or can it be performed one on one at a casual setting?

I loved the first one, I never found the math difficult and so I used it a lot but this new version is just so full of ideas. I love some of the ideas for getting the number especially s***k t***f. Also a few days before my copy arrived I went to perform the original for a young girl and she was incapable of doubling 24 and adding 2 to it (the youth of today). Cal ender would have been perfect for that situation, instead I had to try a much more bold approach although admittedly I surprised and impressed myself with the method I used.

When this was first announced I asked the question whether this was worth getting if you were comfortable with the original and Michael said probably not, he was being very modest, even if you are totally at home with the original there is just so much more in this. The star really has gone super nova.

I've had this for a few days and my head is just reeling with thoughts, ideas and questions. I love that there is so much versatility in this collections of ideas, and that you can build so many different variations, based on your performance needs and preferences. It really is amazing work. For those that like a pad-less approach, I've mixed in one of my favorite astrological effects with Isabella's Star 2 for a super clean variation. If you have Neil Scryer and Friends, check out the routine "Star Seeker". It's a mystifying routine that allows you to cleanly learn someone's astrology sign. From there, you're off to the races!

If you are looking to perform this on stage then the original may suffice. The IS2 contains many variants and approaches that whilst are ideally suited to close up some could be adapted for stage use.

Wasn't sure where to post this and mods feel free to delete or move if I'm crossing any lines!
I've found a good way of getting the zodiac sign for someone in informal situations. Simply have a friend prepped to jump in at any point before or during the effect and take a guess at the spectators sign. If they are right they turn around to you and act like you had told them, something along the lines of 'you were right' would suffice. If they get it wrong the spec might volunteer their sign or your friend can ask for it. They can make a joke and say, that's why they don't do this sort if thing. Either way there is a disconnect in the spectators mind as you have not asked for the sign.

Just a thought

Regards,

Sea

I definitely prefer this book to the first one. I had to read it a few times to fully understand and appreciate it.

These are a great idea Michael and for me personally, would fit my presentation in my parlor act perfectly.

Hello all,

If you go directly to the link on the website there is a line under the price saying "save 20% for non-EU customers"...did anybody get this to work?

Is there any language restrictions or can it be done in any language without any major problem?

In case the answer is a not a 100 percent 'NO', would it be possible to adjust in some way the English wording to the Greek one accordingly?

Thank you in advance,

Regards,
Andrew K.

Works in every language, there is 1 part that works better in some languages but it's not really a problem.
