your all lame as balls, real close up workers like ungimicked stuff the most, pen through bill is deff not that! The best is deff the okito coin box, its fun, and alot of stuff from books rocks to, but many people from penguin are lazy and dont like to read... and you could get alot more from books

like who? David Blaine? Brad Christian?? in case you diddnt notice, all they use is gimmiked stuff. personally i like just a deck of cards, 2 half dollars, and a sharpie. But alot of pros use gimmicks that are easy to ditch.

Blaine sucks! just to give you an idea about him, before he went public, there was only 1 magician in all of New York City, his home town, who knew of him, let alone knew him. I belive the magic coumunity is cruicial for all magicians to have even if they suck. Blaine did not have that magic comunity. I have a bunch of magic friends, both pros and amatures, and all of them dont like Blaine.

My favorite close-up routines are:

3-D Rabbits (I love my routine for them.)

Three phase card routine (This is a routine that I wrote years ago, which ends in a version of Joe Riding's "Think-A-Card".)

Egg Bag (Using a Tong made Tarbell bag, using the Martin Lewis routine.)

Brother John Hamman's handling for "The Homing Card." Not only does it get incredible reactions from the spectators, but it is also so much fun to do. Once you get the handling to the point where you can forget you are actually doing sleights, you even amaze yourself. It's even beautiful to watch from the magician's perspective. It's one of the most fluid pieces of impromptu close-up card magic I've ever learned. Excellent economy of motion...not a wasted move...each phase more and more amazing until the very end.
