I reviewed this on my blog today

Is the fingertip handshake required for each performance?


No it's not required.

Haha, no it's not - being left handed I'm hoping I can use my right hand anyway to avoid the awkwardness

When I was going back to get the link for my review I was very surprised to see I was somewhat behind the trend. That was a log of reviews for one day!

It was released on the 20th. In his instructional video, Harlan urged his viewers to leave a review. After it had been purchased by many (it ranked #6 on the Top Ten purchased products on the 20th of July), they left a review all on the same day. Couldn't it be that people enjoyed the effect so much that many left a 5 star review on the release date? Smile

I'm a huge Penguin fan but with reviews they post them immediately if it's their own release and well received and seem to lag when an effect isn't as well reviewed. Maybe it's coincidence, but I doubt it.

This looks quite interesting. (Although I have no idea what the banjo chatter means)

After see the full performance, I instantly saw the method, but I must say its quite nice and when you justify each movement, nothing becomes very odd,
the method by itself is not new, it remembers me to some card tricks, and also I see bits from bob cassidy for the peek,
everything is quite well put together,
for the spectator point of view its all quite clean,

just cards and pen are used, they keep both papers in their hand and setup takes seconds,

obviously you must touch the paper at some point, that's all the dirty work, but is somehow justified,
angles, are of 180º or more,

overall, 8/10, did like it.

Could you please provide a link or reference to the title of this lecture ? As it does not show up on his Penguin page.

Thanks Seth!!!

Yes, I like it - if you watch the full video you'll instantly get the method if you are in the "field" - but it doesn't matter if you are presenting to non-mentalists/magicians etc. - its fun, cool presentation you can spookify or make more fun as needed. I already worked into a 3-routines EYE presentation....

1) All Seeing Eye

2) Modified Business Card Prophecy - use tarot or regular cards - but have the eye used to "see" now demonstrate the power of prophecy - with some readings involved... add some extra sigils etc and the revelation

3) AOK - if you got this, I uploaded a video on the Penguin site (and showing my fav. modified move) where I draw an EYE as part of the presentation (it made sense from my style of presentation) - now the eye can not just help you "see" the physical, "see" the future" but it can "see" into the minds of people as well.

By the time you give back that Eye, it will have been associated with so much mystic power, you can sign it and tell them it may act as a guard against Evil Eyes and such. Also, for anyone thinking they got the method from step 1 - the other steps get more and more eerie and harder to track that by the end... kaboom.

:)

Thanks Dan - its a fun nice routine! This just pushed me to buy 1000 blank business cards.

Hi Doctor - I'm liking your AOK contribution. Thanks!

What's the difference between a magician and a deck of cards? A deck of cards has FOUR suits...

Thanks!

Here is a pic for the triple whammy at the end....

First the eye itself...
Phase 2, draw the 2 tarot cards or whatever
Phase 3, I just add some markings to the upper and lower lashes to create the Sigil of the Pythian Oracle

P.S. aside: there are 42 eyes in a standard deck of playing cards.... going to work that in eventually.

Fun fun fun!

Got this and during the full performance worked out exactly what was happening.

I agree with what Dan says, " a soon as you try this you will use it"(something like that anyway).

Really simple & really good. Everything is justified & Dan is a great teacher.

Great download.
