Revisiting various 20th century silks methods...

At about the 2:00 spot of this facebook videolink (if it works):
you might be able to see my "Third Millennium Silks" routine. I wanted a suave and debonair way to magically produce all three silks before doing the 20th century bit, so I modified some stuff from Tarbell and other sources. This routine was published in the August 1989 issue of _GENII_ and is also in my lecture notes.

"Third Millennium Silks" is fine for a manipulation act, but for school shows and such I do a more conventional over-the-counter Rice 20th Century Silks set.

I may have mentioned before that my friends the late Joe and Georgi Smiley did a great 20th Century Silks routine with a science fiction theme. I also remember reading in GENII_about someone who would tie two ungimmicked silks together and then, when going to his prop box for a magic wand, simply switched the ungimmicked silks for a gimmicked set.

I learned about the generic 20th Century Silks effect in Joseph Leeming's _Fun with Magic_. I'm guessing that most of the lay audience can't distinguish something like the Leeming version from a Rice gimmicked set.
