I recently saw the web shot of Conns Scramble version of "chink a chink"

It looks good. IMHO there are a lot of people that can make matrix look like magic or as you originally described it.

I still do the original method with a kicker.(???Was it Al Schneider???). For Magi I used to do a penny dime nickle and quarter version. For regular folks it seems to be the same effect. It is not in my regular line up these days. I still get requests for it occasionally and when I have shared it, it still plays very well.

I tend to take things out that are in. Sometimes that turns out to be a mistake. A non coin example is I recently put back in a scarf/t_ _ routine with my coins.

A simple vanish of a item whether coin or red "hanky/rag" still can play well. My audiences are not usually magicians. I work from preschoolers to the country club set.
For the past 10 years or so I have been using my Brain Washers. For the young kids I use a Bob the Builder Patter.

Thanks for your honesty, Beetroot.

I would rather be pulled up by reality than held back by "attaboys".

Have a safe and nearly normal HOYC.(holiday of your choice)

You are all appreciated by,

I do Paul Harris's "Silver Slide" followed by a standard 4-card, 4-coin Matrix routine. Even when I've performed it rather sloppily, spectators have gasped in amazement. I know how it is sometimes difficult to "see" the magic when you know the secret. The reactions have sufficiently convinced me that it isn't obvious to most people how the coins travel. I only had one spectator ask to see the cards, wondering if there were some kind of gimmick that enabled me to pick up the coins, probably the result of my poor handling.
