Hi.

I have seen Latimer's routine, and I found it full of clever ideas. I am wondering whether it has been published somewhere...

Thanks

Jason has not yet published his routine or method for doing his Glass cups. He has not finished using it as his signature piece yet, but said that one day, not in the real distant future, he will be marketing the routine/props.

There is, however, a 20-year old book, published by Mickey Hades, that has a way to do some good cups and balls work with clear plastic glasses.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for replying.

I am not really interested in the props, as I am not going to perform his routine (I am quite happy with mine, which I can perform standing and - almost - sourronded: that it is something I suppose I wouldn't be able to do with Latimer's one).

Still I found his ideas very interesting, and I had to discuss with friends about how some passages worked, because I was fooled.

Do you have more information on that book of Mickey Hades, which I tried to find in Internet with no success.

Thanks again, cheers

Stefano

Hmmm.....it looks like another method for an impromptue chop cup routing, where you "chop" the cup in the performance.


Just wondering, but did Jason use something similer? I haven't had a chance to see his routine anywhere...

I do not believe Latimer's routine uses such gimmickes.

Anyhow, I can do an "impromptu" (a-ehm) chop cup routine just borrowing a cup and a banknote (a la Patrick Page).

Much cheaper than 40$ - but no DVD! Smile

Cheers

I was fortunate enough to not only see the routine but also to talk with Mr. Latimer about it at this years IBM convention.

His routine is certainly original. He did elude to the fact that there are props associated with the routine. At this point I feel strongly that it is entirely up to him to reveal what the "gimmick" is as this is his signature routine.

He is looking at making the transition from close up to stage. I can't wait to see what original ideas he comes up with on a large scale.

Again, it sure is a beautiful routine!
