What I meant was that I was getting Dvds like Crowdpuller,Building a Tip,Gazzo on Tour,Cellini Art of Street performing,and a pouch. A few other stuff also. Just mainly DVDs to get me started. Not all tricks.
OK, I thought you were going to buy effects to perform. The DVDs will help. I have all of those that you mentioned and have watched them all several times. Cellini's DVDs are great I bet I watch them once a week to refresh myself on things. Once you're in the field, it is different than what you saw on DVDs. They don't show you how it is when it is so hot or cold or rainy that peiple won't stop to watch you. They don't show you standing there and trying to build a tip and you're so darn hungry you want to fry up one of the squealing kids for lunch.
But it is all worth it when you get home and count up your hat and realize that you made more in 6 hours than a lot of people make working 40 hours a week. Yes I live very comfortably on my busking money. In fact I worked at a restaurant tonight for 3 hours and made US$130 plus the restaurant fee. That's entertaining.
