yeh well i have more routines then that that was just my best one.
Also i dont need to put coins nd mentalism and all that crap in cauze i dont do that magic i just do cards and close up not really much coin work so i am not changing my tricks just for ur sake.
plus everyone on the forums i have read messages from have told me just to have one routine with 3 gd tricks.Also they have told me to use gimmicks and all the gimmicks i use reset quick and queens out of control iz not even gimmicked nor is the stealth pen really.i can put whatever tricks in my routine that i want cauze it iz my routine and u cant change it so just leave it.
i probaly have more confidence in my magic then u do so y try and destroy my confidence i can do resturant work if i want and u cant change that.Anyway there are a lot of pros who just do all cards tricks so i dont have to put money mentalism levitation etc if i dont want 2.
if you're mad at his criticism, dont ask for it
you arent changing your magic for his sake, its for your AUDIENCE's sake...they will get bored to death with card tricks, my audiences do all the time.
here's what i would do...sit down and write all the tricks you know in these categories:
-Everyday objects(pens, rubberbands, etc.)
then try to incorporate one trick from each category into a routine that flows smoothly. Then come up with fitting patter...then you will have 3 or 4 or 5 good solid routines that you can rotate between. And pros do not just do cards...they do other tricks as well, but specialize in cards...and besides, YOU AREN'T A PRO so dont act like one till you become competent in more than one area of magic
and stealth pen IS DEFINITELY gimmicked
