Hey Kraynik or Mexico5 or other ones, could you tell me how your first performance for strangers was. I would like to know that...
Effing terrible. I was at an amusement park after like 5 days of getting my first magic tricks. I was with a bunch of friends and I'm like "Hey check out that change dude over there with the fannypack full of quarters. I'm gonna show him a trick like David Blaine. Watch, it'll be funny!" I go up to him and say "I see you have a lot of quarters. Check this out." I pull out my coin bite from my pocket, silently do the full effect in a matter of 5 seconds, and put it away. The guy has the most bored, disgusted look on his face and uber sarcastically goes "Woooow" in monotone, and gives me the dismissal gesture with his hands. I walk back and my friends were laughing at me.
What a long freakin' way I've come with magic
