I met Mickey and Larry Barnowsky (the count elmsly) at the Conclave Convention. It looked to me that Mickey had taught Larry the SUV. I'm not sure if it was the SUV exactly, but it looked a lot like it. Larry was even vanishing the coins in his mouth, so either they were the same vanish, or they were very similar. So I think to say that Mickey hasn't shown anyone might not be very accurate, he might have without your knowing (seems impossible but it might be true). But I guess Mickey is the only one who can confirm what he has and hasn't done. Either way, I can't wait for his dvd to come out.

Hi everyone ! Hope everything is going well with all!

I see the "SILVER ULTIMATE VANISH " topic has came up...THANKS GUYS !
I was on my way to perform MAGIC at a trade show in NEW YORK CITY a few WKS ago. I stopped by Jonathan Townsends on the way. As I was getting out of the car, Jonathan caught me off guard by handing me a CHINESE COIN (SILVER DOLLAR SIZE) and asking me to do the SUV. I think Jon perhaps was a bit skeptic, so he wanted to see if I could perform the SUV with a borrowed coin. Jonathan couldn't believe his eyes...He told me it was very impressive....In fact ! Jon is a true SLEIGHT OF HAND EXPERT, he could not figure out the MECHANICS of this move. Jon being very ethical in magic, did not ask me how it was done...I never did tell him ! Was Jon MAD ?..." NO " instead he took me out to Dinner and we ended up talking magic all night. WHAT A INTERESTING NIGHT! I can honestly say JONATHAN is truely a excellent magician as well as a good friend..." It was my turn to say to Jonathan " I couldn't believe my eyes " ..REALLY !
It really means a lot to me when I see people talking about my magic here on the Café' ....When in fact some of the very same people I met in person are absolutely excellent themselves at MAGIC !.....I mean, look at Larry Barnowsky, this guy has created magic routines that would blow your mind. C'mon Larry it's time to show the World ! I am quite sure all will see him in the near future. Take David Ranalli and his killer card routine. This Kid totally flipped me out .."WOW".he is truely an up comming PRO magician. "THE GOD FATHER" of MAGIC himself (we know him as VINSMAGIC ) is a absolute true card mechanic along with extreme knowledge of coins, ropes, rubber bands ,silks etc..etc..etc. At the MAGIC CASTLE I MET Café' members as well ! Kirk Grodske..THIS GUY IS SOMETHING ELSE..seeing is believing when it comes to Kirk. JIM CANADAY IS ANOTHER..unreal!
Can't forget Charlie C. for he is truely the future of MAGIC. luismagic..WOW..talk about MATRIX! Café' member and great guy..CHARLES SCHNEIDER..HE! is a true lover of COIN MAGIC. AH! we must not forget JAMES Lac and Lonnie Dillion ,two of the finest sleight of hand mechanics you could ever meet, along with being two of the nicest guys ! AND OF COURSE Café' Members Tom Gilbert and Mark Jensen!!!! It was such a pleasure meeting these Café' members in person and seeing how fantastic their magic is.

Getting back to "Silvers Ultimate Vanish" I CAN HONESTLY SAY I HAVE NEVER SHOWN ANYONE THE MECHANICS OF THIS SLEIGHT. I HAVE HOWEVER IN THE PAST SHOWED PEOPLE MY REGULAR RETENTION VANISH...."BUT" NEVER THE SUV.
PLEASE NOTE: INVOLVED IN THE SUV IS A VERY INTERESTING SLEIGHT....THIS SLEIGHT IS UNDETECTABLE TO THE EYE AND TO THE WAY WE THINK. I was showing DAN SYLVESTER this one night a few month ago at the MAGIC CASTLE....HE COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT HE COULD NOT FIGURE IT OUT.. I WAS SHOWING DAN IN SLOW MOTION and about 20 INCHES IN FRONT OF HIS FACE...AND I WAS LAUGHIN BECAUSE HE HAD HIS COSTUME ON, MAKING NOISES..LOL...WHAT A GREAT GUY! "REALLY"

PLEASE NOTE: THE SUV CAN BE PERFORMED SURROUNDED WHILE SOMEONE IS BEHIND ME LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER AND STILL NOT BE DETECTED... I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF A RETENTION VANISH .."THAT CAN BE PERFORMED SURROUNDED"

THE COIN IS PLACED IN MY LEFT HAND....LEAVING ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT IN ANYONES MIND......REMEMBER! that's BECAUSE THIS SLEIGHT WILL NOT ALLOW THE HUMAN MIND TO ACCEPT IT. It has never been in writing and is totally original...100 PER CENT!

I HAVE PLANS ON RELEASING ALL MY ORIGINAL SLEIGHTS IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE...INCLUDING MOST OF ALL "THE SUV"

THANKS A MILLION FOR READING GUYS!

YOUR GOOD FRIEND,

MICKEY

Hi folks,

Yes I asked Mickey to do his move using a borrowed coin. I thought he got in the door before I made this request... guess I was a bit eager.

Mickey did some magic at the restaurant before dinner. He took a silver dollar, tapped it on a plate, and it SHATTERED into four quarters. And repeated it with a second silver dollar. He also did his coin through table. Impressive. Was so good I did not ask about mechanics. Not too often I get to see material that good. And is fun just to enjoy... eye candy Smile

Just so folks can hear it directly, I have not been so impressed with a vanish since I saw David Roth do the retention pass back in 75. The words in Greater Magic about a totally convincing coin vanish ring true again.

Was a fun evening, he is a gracious guest. Come back anytime.

:)

Jon
...to all the coins I've dropped here

Mickey, heck guy, I just wanted to thank you for sticking my name in amongst the guys in your list. I think my magic just got a couple of degrees better from being in the same room as the rest'8) I can tell you this though, no matter who gets to hold which trophy, it would be hard to find a classier guy than Mickey Silver.

Everyone I've shown Mickeys SUV demo video to has been blown away. I'd love to see his other ideas with coins and cant wait till he releases his DVD.

Mr. Silver (hey, I don't feel right calling you Mickey), I'm absolutely "giddy" about your upcoming release. Please hurry...there's money about to burn a hole in my pocket!

If it was easy, everybody would do it, and if everybody did it, it wouldn't be magic.

Mark,
I truly am looking forward to breaking my promise not to buy any more books/videos.
At 70 years of age, I still try not to purchase another work of magic.
Notice that I said "magic"?
That is what Mickey does with his hands.

I hate it when people say "do a trick for me". I always tell them that "animals and some people do tricks, I do magic".

Look at Mickey's eyes and his gestures. He looks like he really can do "magic" and I love his work.

Tom Wolf
The magic director and performer at the Rincon Gaucho supper club in Mexico City,

We opened the first and only close-up room for magic in Mexico with Wolf Ruvinskis.
have several new coin vanishes and routines to share shortly just as soon as I can find someone to film them for me.


Now living in Harrison, Ohio

Tom, you are right about that. I have never met anyone who has actually seen Mickey work who didn't think it was magic. It is pretty rare when an unknown entity shows up at an event and has some of the top magicians in the world scrambling to see him work. This is what happened at Jeff McBride's school the night before LVMI. I am talking about major names in magic all crowding into a small classroom to see the 'human slot machine.' That is a nickname that I am glad didn't stick, because Mickey is so much more than that. He is no 'one trick wonder,' that's for sure. There were any number of people who were circling, like vultures to the kill, but the people who cared about Mickey circled around him, and made sure he wasn't taken advantage of. Mickey is too nice a guy not to protect. If the future of magic could be as kind and as classy as Mickey, it would be bright indeed. There is no attitude of superiority, rather, he is sort of like Doug Henning was; he performs magic AND he believes in it. He not only performs it, but he shares the wonder of it with his audience. I am always honored to be among that audience, and count on me to crowd into any small room in which Mickey is working.
