Greetings Penguin. My name is JT, known to these boards as Miniserb725. It's been some time since I've been on the boards, and I'm seeing a lot of unfamiliar faces!

Getting back into magic, cracking open Card College Vol. I to reminisce about the basics before digging into the nitty gritty (Art of Astonishment, Kostya Kimlat cull material, etc).

Main question for the topic: What are you working on at the moment?

JT

Hey JT! I'm TJ, that coincidence is a good chunk of magic as is.

Currently, I'm trying to work on Hypnotism and Mentalism, although not mentalism tricks in general, but I guess the psychology behind performing, savvy?

I want to learn better ways of building routines and reactions, and honestly just working on trying to get out and perform in general. School just ended for me, so it's kinda hard to just go out at first, nerve wracking really... I guess it might be best to start with family, move up to friends, and then strangers, but everyone seems so busy.

Thanks for the positivity and curiousity JT!

~TJ

I am playing with Fiber Optics. I am the crazy retired foreigner of the neighborhood. I like to entertain the kids with stuff I can easily keep in my pocket like ropes and sponge balls.

I've been reevaluating my magic and I'm trying to do more technical, obscure or original magic. So I'm working on making my act more unique and difficult to replicate.

I am getting ready to look for my 1st restaurant gig ... I too am coming back after a 4-5 year break and like you, i went through my old material (card college, Art of astonishement). They came out with Card college books with only tricks so those are on my radar soon .... I recently discovered lots of nice effects and some of them i am putting into my restaurant routines

Richard Sanders Aces is a great killer packet trick.
I am waiting on distortion by wayne houchin and Iproject to arrive in the mail this week (hopefully).

Actually, i've been developping a new mentalism effect, where the spectator choses any card (there's no force) and sends me the info just by thought (mind reading) ..... I do not reveal the card just yet but instead i smile , take the deck and say "I can see your card in your mind just fine ...here's what i am going to do, I also know where in the deck your card is, i will send you the number" and i ask them to let me know when they see my number appear in their head .... I then count that many cards down and of course it's their selection.

I just tried it 3 times and all 3 of my co-workers were floored so this is definately going in my restaurant act ;)
