Here's mine... in the vid, jimmy himself uses his car keys, and in that clip he kinda has a little trouble getting "the thing"...I personally don't want to be performing with a pocket full of keys...I also don't wanna bring out the marker, use the lid, and then have to pretend to have forgotten where the marker is (just a personal thing - I don't want to factor in that 'forgetting' during every performance or every other one)...as for "its not examinable" - I guess everyone has their own limbo based line!

I think as long as we all stay polite, we should be able to agree to disagree... Smile

I had another idea, (maybe) you could use this as part of a flea-circus kinda thing...in that if you set up two lids, and balanced a coffee stirrer on the top of each lid, if it works well enough that it all topples, then you know your flea is still a bit clumsy and not ready for the high-wire act he's always wanted to do (as his uncle was a famous high-wire flea-walker)...it wouldn't suit me, but it would be some silly fun maybe...

the pk distance of the marker looked very good, and a nice distance for activation...

Of course we can agree to disagree. Im just trying to highlight that with a little thought there are ways to reset this live and it is most certinly examinable.

You could also have three different coloured lids, an easy equivoque and off you go...

If you don't mind gimmicking the nib so you can use Paralab tech, then you have further options...

You could even use the stick provided to make a bridge or tight rope as it were between the gimmick cap and normal cap and as the fleas travel across the topple it down, using my imagination now 😌😌

If you perform PK magic, this type of effect kills. I don't know how it would go over if you broke it out and the end of a coin and card set, but I've specialized in PK. And having something move, especially covered, just blows people away. Another thing that surprised me when I started in PK, was that it seemed, the smaller the movement the bigger reaction. It all stems from your performing style and building credibility in the type of effects you're doing.

Hi, Murphy's web site may have had some kind of maintenance because it was very slow at the end of last week.
But it is much better today.
Hopefully it should be up back to normal very soon.

Yes it's fine now. Yesterday it was taking 30 mins to download 5mins of video.

How a spectator cannot see the gimmick on the cap?how can Strange tell the cap can be inspected?
Ridicolous.specs must be blind.
The idea can work but it must be totally reenginered 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Very very sad

Hi Mark

I've been enjoying performing it for a while now, so I'm sure we can turn around the problems you are having.
Are you free some time for a skype session? We can work with you to get you up and running and iron out some of the challenges you have experienced. Shoot me a PM with when you are available.

Best wishes as always
