Just downloaded. I have a fear about using this routine. I just have a phobia that it could go wrong.

According to Anthony, he has never had it go wrong. So I will just have to trust him and try it out.

That being said, Anthony does provide an "Out" if you aren't able to pinpoint someone's secret exactly. And it is great. Heck, I think it may even add a little to the routine.

The routine itself does seem very real. I don't even think you can describe this as cleanly as it is. It really needs to be seen. There is hardly any interaction with the spectators before you begin to describe their secret. And you describe their secret in MUCH detail.

Like I said, I will definitely give this a shot and see how it plays.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The writing itself it extremely to the point. There is no filler or fluff. It simply explains how it works, explains how the impromptu method works, and that's it.

It's taken me a while to get round to posting about Secret.

I agree with Chester on this to a great degree, however I do understand the slight concern MagicMaddy may have.
I think any competent performer will have no trouble with it at all.
Wannabees may be a little apprehensive but, as Chester says that's no bad thing.

On reading it it did FAINTLY bring to mind both Taboo and TOH, but they are both great effects so again, no bad thing.
And this was mostly a visual aspect of the stage setting, which could easily be changed.
Once you have this down and well rehearsed, you have a propless effect that should kill big time.

Anthony sent me a free copy of this....but I decided to pay him for it.
It is well worth the money.

Now I'm off to email for V 2.0

I have bought this but have yet to try it out, looks promising. I like the the idea behind it. You can adapt it to your own personel style.

Also thank you Anthony for the updated close up version.

Anthony, couldn't resist this one and glad I didn't...nuff said, no filler or fodder, it's practical and very interesting plus has drama built in...as mind readers or what ever your claim may be, SHOULDN'T WE BE ABLE TO FIND PEOPLE'S DEEP DARK SECRETS?! With this you apparently can and yes...audiences will fear you, but love you for it Smile

Haven't used this one in public yet, but I'm very curious to see how it plays. Thanks to Iain for the close-up addition, appears to be a very nice touch.

Hi all,

Would be great to hear back off you guys on your use of this.

Have you had the chance yet? If so, how did it go?

Thanks in advance,

Anthony Smile

I saw Secret 2.0 on Facebook and was curious enough to order it.

This is a wee PDF and it won't take longer than about ten minutes to digest the document and the concept. Like Stephen I was reminded of Bernstein's Taboo..although Black's method is more basic and significantly simpler to do. There are a number of other differences...but at its core this is a very, very basic and clever concept.

Is it useable?

Are your balls the size of grapefruits?

If they are, you're going to hit a home run with this one. The more I think about it, the more I like it. But I was undecided...so I read the manuscript effect to my resident Crusher Of Stupid Ideas...Sheree, my wife. Nothing impresses her much anymore. When I'd finished reading the script she smiled. Yeah. She had a good idea of how it worked...but c'mon. She's been married to a mystery performer for 25 plus years.

I like it more each time I read it, actually. I like it enough that I'm gonna take it out for a test drive at a little house party I have next week.

Will it make it into my stage show? It'll have to pass the close-up process first. But there's brilliance in this concept. It's a new treatment of an older idea...and I'm actually really looking forward to working up my own version.

Great work, Anthony. Like his a lot.

David

Is eMentalism.com a legit place to get a copy of this? I'd much rather pay in US dollars than have my bank do the conversion.

Hi Josh,

You can if you like, but it should not be an issue buying from me direct via PayPal here:

http://www.thewrongsideofmidnight.com/the-secret.php

Which is my prefered way of doing things Smile

All the best,

Anthony

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

David,

Many thanks for your kind words & I'm really pleased you enjoyed this Smile

Please come back and tell us how it went after you use it for the first time, and I'm glad it passed what
we all know to be one of the hardest tests of all...the wife test! Smile

I think this method has many possibilities and once people see how adaptable it is...well...

Have fun Smile

Anthony

Unfortunately, PayPal is telling me that my card cannot be used for the transaction. Should I just purchase it at eMentalism or do you have another suggestion?

I think you will have to, yours is the first issue I have had though.

I have never had any issues with Paypal, and I know it's working fine for others.

Very strange...

Good luck Smile
