Here is a performing story featuring an effect from the book:

For those that have the book, there is an effect which I really enjoyed called !@#$ O**.

Well I have done this several times now, but today as I was waiting at a shipping counter, the guy from DHL knows Im a mentalist and asked me to show him something so I decided to do the effect from the book.

The three cities thought of were: Ibiza, Paris, Dubai.

I then took him through the process, and at the end, made a drawing.

I asked him what he was thinking of, and he said, since I had already committed, and he said Dubai.

I turned around the drawing and told him I was getting this from you.......and he was in shock.

He said.........I swear that was the first thing I thought of, and I changed it at the last second in my mind only.

How could you know? Not only did I get the city, I also got something very rare from the city, that I knew he was thinking about.

The Catacombs........ just goes to show that one effect can take you places you never dreamed of, no pun intended.

Alex


And that says it all....

I've been to Dubai dozens of times and also had no idea there were catacombs. Not only a brilliant effect but educational too.

As far as don't buy the book as an investment, well yes do but not as a financial investment, as in investment in yourself that will pay dividends every time you book a gig. I love this book and I don't care if they end up selling for 5 grand I will be keeping mine permanently.

Loool, I live in Dubai (been here all my life), and The Catacombs (when called that) is quite new to me. So kudos to Alex and the FO effect.

And it goes without saying, anyone coming to Dubai, feel free to PM me if you need anything.

On another note, I have been enjoying The Black Project, especially the stories and the business side.

Also, Looch is sharing so many details in terms of scripts. The ones geared towards walkaround mentalism are priceless.

Great work Looch and co.

What I meant to say was the target selected by the spectator was Paris, so I felt, that he wouldnt go for something traditional, so I drew something that resembled the catacombs, hence Paris.

So then, when I asked him what he was thinking of, not the city, but something within the city, and I was expecting something along those lines, and he said DUBAI

So then I felt I had failed, but I told him, I don't know why but the whole time I was getting this from you, and showed him my drawing, and that is when he freaked out, because he said he originally thought of Paris and the Catacombs, but at the last second he switched cities on me, but was highly impressed when I nailed his first thought.

Go figure

I appreciate that I may be being really stupid here (I blame my age, my general ignorance and my secret drink problem) but is skunkworks hanger 18, or is hanger 18 something different in addition to skunkworks?

Is there anything on how to establishing first time connections with clients, as in through an agent, cold calling, basically how to advertise yourself starting from ground zero. Thanks

Looks like Kens finally gotten round to reading his, just received this quote:

"This is one of the most talked-about mentalism releases of the year. For hobbyists, Looch shares some great stories from his time on the road, and for the professional we get a glimpse inside of how Looch's mind works when it comes to performing commercial material. For me though, the full work on Looch's dastardly prediction of a sporting event, under the stringent, watchful eye of the police is worth the price of this beautiful book."

I don't buy that many Mentalism or Magic books but this is one that I had to have as Ive known Looch for a few years since meeting him at MindVention here in Las Vegas. I'm glad that I have The Black Project and will not part with the set at any price...

For those whom don't know me, I retired from performing years ago and have the drive to start performing my own style of Mentalism again.
