2 things and not to be critical but the perception had you be a magician not a mentalist. OK if that was what you were going for but devastating if not?

And I think the method was obvious. Of course that when looking through the eye of one such as us. Obviously stellar to the lay.

Kudos for getting the radio spot.
A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a foolish man can learn from a wise answer.

Attributing negativity to a topic or post doesn't make the topic or post negative,
it shines a light on the negativity of the person or persons, making the attributions.

BEWARE these Debbie downers and anything they say. They simply lack the self esteem or good will, to be positive or productive. Your belief in self, is more
important and is all that matters, for your success to be glorious.

Oh and just so that you know, that's why I can't perform my one card killer for mentalists. It's method would be brutishly obvious.

Not devastating at all: I was there to promote the preview run of my new show, Near Death Experience, which includes both mentalism and magic within a larger narrative. For these purposes, I was presented as a "psychological magician." His reaction was priceless, and the radio show (one of the top rated in Indianapolis) even posted this video to its Facebook page, where it quickly got several thousand views. So, mission accomplished.

(To say the method was obvious, however, could be seen as raising yourself up by putting down your brethren who've already admitted to not knowing how it's accomplished. Not to be critical, but you might want to consider how you're being perceived.)

Thank you for the criticism. I can sometimes not come off well in the written word and thought that my own self depreciation explained my reasoning. I'm not responsible for others perceptions only for my own presentations. But I'll try to do better.

For years, my favorite go-to trick with an unprepared deck of cards has been my own "Sort Of The Truth", although now that I've streamlined "Philter", it's quickly becoming my favorite.

"Color Sense" from Card Fictions by Pit is a wonderful routine. Though I think doing it in this scenario would go specifically against Pit's essay on performance mode because OP would be on the spot in that moment. So a single card divination with the necessary WORK for "Color Sense" being done while running through the cards to find the originally thought of card. I hope that makes sense to those who know "Color Sense".

Holy history lesson Sudo, that was amazing! near encyclopedic! I really appreciate the info and will definately check out Lorayne's take on the Murata principle. I've been fascinated by the effect since I learned it, marveling at the mind that could come up with such an idea. Thanks!

No problem Caveman - you're welcome.

If you can, you really should check out Harry's DVD I mentioned where it is featured - I didn't see the ending coming and it fooled me good. It's a wonderful routine and very sneaky. Makes me grin every time I perform it. Smile
I'm frequently hit with enlightening in the middle of a brain storm.

Ben Blau's "Sort Of The Truth" from Asymptotes has become my new favorite with a borrowed deck, actually any deck. It's perfectly motivated and if you're one who doesn't like mixing cards and mentalism, I find it the perfect solution to have on hand if someone asks you to do something with cards.

Thank you! If you liked that one, you’re probably also going to like another few that will be released on an upcoming video project of mine. This video will feature several effects, and a large portion of the proceeds are going to be donated to the Eugene Burger Estate Scholarship Fund for The Magic & Mystery School.

One of the new routines is probably going to be filmed today, and if I get good footage I’ll post a link here.

Ben, I saw the performance video of denim on your youtube channel. It is fantastic. Great job! I'm not going to post a link here. I'll let you do that when you are ready to share it.
