I wasn't at that performance, but I can say that Ted Lesley and I are still trying to puzzle out how you bent that MARKED penny!!!! WOW!!!

That was impressive!

As far as I am concerned, that upstaged Klosterman's Robert-Houdin Light and Heavy Chest.

The banacheck DVD is VERY good.

Osterlind spoon bend is good and his matrix touch is amazing. Even more amazing due to the cheek of the method (if you know, you'll know).

Also of interest is the sawa spoon bend. I think I spelled it right. You can see Chappy Brazil do it on his watch steal tape. It's visual and really good.

Anything by Banacheck. Psychokenetic silverware is his best, and he on his own is an incredible magician. I have worked with him personally a little, and can honestly say that I think he is the best spoon/fork bending resource available to the magical community.

Metalogic is great, try bending the spoon without breaking it. I have found this to be stronger. Just let gravity do its thing.

David Williamson has a good routine on his Dave II video. Also, Alain Nu has an effect called Fender Bender using the Metalogic gimmick but it's not a complete routine. Too bad!

I have a question for anyone that does Banachek's bend where the item of silverware is held in the hand and the spectator rubs the spoon to make it bend. When I get someone to do this I always (ALWAYS) get lewd comments. I don't really mind them but it's a shame as it detracts from the magic a little bit. Does anyone else have this problem and how do you get around it?

You might comment dryly that "They all say that". Alternatively play up on it and throw in a comment about "Viagra", unless doing so really doesn't fit your style (though your photo suggests you have some sense of humour). When people see Uri Geller do this they haven't just watched him do a card trick or sponge ball routine, so for most people it's a special event and not just a trick. Perhaps you could reserve spoon-bending for the situations and audiences in which it sells best?

A good "catch all" line for lewd comments is, "Oh, I've seen you've done this before." It doesn't really mean anything, but it gets a quick laugh and breaks the moment so it goes no further.

I'm glad someone mentioned Ben Harris's book. It a great reference for psychic material, but it often gets overlooked.

Concerning plastic spoon bends, Patrick Kuffs (spelling?) has a great method on his video. He kind of throws it away as a gag, but I think it was the best thing on the tape.

Personally I love David Blaine.

I think he knows what magic is really about, and it is proven in the large amount of lay audience fans he has and their belief in him. I think if he steps it up a notch we might have something big on our hands, or actually the laymen on their hands...

Got to get a clip of the heart thing though.

You have to see Penn & Teller's Bull**** episode that covers spoon-bending. Apparently, some psychics suck so much they actually bend the spoon in their hand and claim their mind made it easier. Oh it's a hoot!

After seeing that, my faith in the gullibility of humans is reaffirmed. Any spoon bend you do will put you light years ahead and will make you a god. Just do it well.

Spoon bending is no big deal...However Spoon STRAIGHTENING would be something to see.

Actually, I do straighten out the spoon/fork/key in some of my shows and it gets just as big a reaction.

I believe Mindbender is the one that can be done surrounded? (On a DVD with a rubber band trick, and a coo coin trick?)

I was talking to the owner of the Magic Corner, and he showed me a spoon that was bent for him by someone, I don't remember who. The spoon was twisted! And it was bent in a circle. I was blown away, and I didn't even see it done! It wasn't a gimicked spoon, because he got to keep it. Does anyone know anything about a bend like this?

Sounds like a combo twist and bend did the twist first then a regular bend, sounds cool though I'll have to try it, oh and thanks to all of you guys who helped me out
