I used the effect a few days ago, to great success.

Am I alone here?

You're not alone. I love it.

I think those slamming it either haven't performed it, or more likely have a problem with some of the atheist slamming Steve Fearson does in the manuscript because the effect is awesome. There are no bows taken.. no TAH DAH! But I suspect any serious mentalist will tell you the routine is the real work.

Could it be done by a kid, or anyone wearing a clown suit? NO WAY. This is for serious performers. I suspect many of the people making negative comments on this board are in fact kids and I can see several are wearing clown suits.

It is definitely not your typical magic trick. I also enjoyed the series of emails pitching the trick. By far the most entertaining promotional concept I've seen in magic.

PS.. I have nothing against clowns. Kids on the other hand spread germs and are loud.

:banana: Smile




Of course the method is great, but it's nothing new. All the great mentalists you speak of have known this for years. It's just dressed up in modern ploy to get those uniformed to buy it. It's like somebody coming out with a manuscript on the TT and gave the impression that it was a new idea.

What? someone else is manufacturing a TT? ***!!!

I totally agree with MrCyNyc wih regard to the marketing ploy used here. When I read the e-mail It was like someone had broken into my home in the middle of the night. I immediately decided I simply did not want to get involved with such a person with any effect at any price.
When he re-contacted me with the second, more pleading offer, I happily informed him of the location where he could insert his latest miracle.
Now? He never writes, he never calls, he never sends flowers, he never...

OK, now all the hype is over, and those who have bought it have had a chance to explore it, I'd love some balanced views from buyers on the Station manager document. Not the marketing - the document. Is it useful?

In my opinion....no.
I suppose the spirit of a good mental effect is there it just needs a little more developing. I unfortunatly do not have the time to develop it nor does it realy fit my presentation style. Some poeple will swear by it though.

Somehow I'm reminded of that master of TV marketing Ron Popeil,
who was among other things the inventor of Veg-O-Matic in 1965.

Jordan, Ron Popeil was a Tele marketing genius who started out in 1965 with a contraption called the veg-o-matic which was sold on the tele here in the states and to this day he continues to bring us such wonders as The Showtime Rotisserie Grill,
Dial-O-Matic,and The Electric Food Dehydrator. Hope this clears things up for you.

I remeber the veg-o-matic, it should have been called the "flesh-o-matic". I sliced the ever loving s**t out of my hand on it.. How you do'in, Mr. Black ?

It's Steve Fearson's mind control, or is it the aliens?
