Hi guys
Thanks so much for your positive praise for these notes. I am going to be lecturing on some of the effects and theory in these notesmfor Penguin Live next Sunday (17th Feb) if you have something you would like me to touch on during the lecture from this release please let me know ASAP!


Looch in the notes you say how your opening effect "nerds to set the context"

Could you please expand:

1) what do you mean by context
2) how does the context inform the rest of your set
3) how do "set" a context?
4) what things would stop this happening successfully?
5) if this is similar to setting a "frame" do you have any tips for getting a spectator to buy into your frame? Techniques... DB in AM talks about not stating things directly or they will be questioned etc

Thanks

Some of the best material I have read in a looooong time. The routines are solid workers (what else do you expect from a guy who earn his wage from these routines). But the real value for me were in the bits inbetween. The proper usage of business cards in your set and a myriad of other tips and advice, all from a guy who has honed his skill set over many years. Looch this is one of the best 'investments' I have made since finding out about Prystic...

A million thanks

Can you please also clarify some aspects of SAD by way of a contrasted example:

Take... I dunno.... A standard multiphase chair prediction.... Does the fact that its got a few steps that a spec needs to remember until the payoff mean its no longer SAD? If so why/why not ? Could a routine like this be stripped back to become SAD? Is there a process? Where do you start?

There's a reason I'm posting this here... in Mentally Speaking rather than on the Looch Penguin thread in Latest and Greatest...

But instead of purchasing a new download this past weekend I re-watched several that I already bought and I was struck...

Looch's lecture was great.

It wasn't the lecture that excited me most on first viewing-- and I feel that this is ***ing it with faint praise but my intention is the opposite-- but it's filled with WORKERS!

And my favourite thing on reviewing-- I didn't even remember from watching it the first time!

Thanks Dave, much appreciated coming from you! I enjoyed lecturing last night in Sheffield and covered quite a lot of the Hamburg material. The response from those in attendance was very encouraging, I think its an ideal lecture for those wanting to get into mentalism and for those who want to expand their knowledge and understanding on Walk Around performance.

The other thing I'll add, is that I really enjoy watching an effect and method evolve over time.
I still remember reading Nod to Pocket Watch in SAD... watching it in YTRM... and seeing what it's become in the lecture.

great stuff

Hey I got a nod. Never read these notes. Never heard of this. Just stumbled across this on the Café. Any good?

By the way, I have heard of this and I know I got a nod. But I typed that last post when I was rather inebriated!

I red SAD and 4.8 after I saw his lecture on penguinmagic.
I'm very interesting in mentalism for about 6 months now an I love doing it. I tried some stuff from his lecture and it worked great.

After this I bought his books and at first I was a bit disappointed that it was nearly the same stuff as in the lecture. But as I red all the things and especially his was wonderful.
There were so many things I learned from him beside the methods.

In my opinion it is absolutely worth and I would suggest to get it with the penguin lecture.
Because both are very good, but together they are really really GREAT!!!

Thanks Looch for sharing. Smile
