I know I posted in this topic once before. Nice to see the mods havent lost their touch.

So far the only person to answer this kids "question" is himself, and DaveV with the TT- which wasnt a direct answer, more of just an example given. :?

Hes also posted a topic thats been posted numerous times before, and will most likey be posted again. :roll: Hes also repeated his question, within this very topic. He also made this topic in other forums.

The kid has also ignored advice, rather good advice as well.

I really dont see this going any where productive. Is another "best" topic really needed?

I also wont be suprised if my post is deleted. Oh well.

You can't. You could, of course, ask around... but that's cheating. lol

magicman280:

1) Goto "Reviews" section, and read about tricks that are favorably reviewed. Then visit the sales page, and watch a preview on that effect.

Is this something that looks street worthy?
Does it look like the type of trick YOU ENJOY PERFORMING?

2) If yes and yes, goto other sites and read more reviews. The Magic Cafe, Magic Bunny, etc have a wealth of information and reviews from professionals in this field. USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION and find this new trick that looks interesting.

3) Make a listing of the top 10 tricks that both appeal to you, and have favorable reviews. Prioritize them in 1 - 10 order, 1 being must have, 10 being nice to have.

4) Purchase items 1 - 10 in that order based upon money available to you.

In other words, you're being lazy - do your own research. You'll be MUCH HAPPIER with your purchase if you do this hunting yourself, and make a decision yourself.

You have to understand you can take any suitable effect and make it awesome. Though this was already stated this is a very important point. You have to be able to work a crowd keep them captivated and in suspense. You can do any effect you want, you either do one of two things magic that is so high impact that it speaks for itself "Blaine Style" or be a real performer,"this isn't a crack at blaine I'm just trying to discern that there are different types of performing styles" and learn to entertain your audience with anything you choose, High impact magic done for no reason is pointless, and it definelty will not get you paid. Your selling yourself not the effects you perform, though it is a balance to choose how your show builds and what you leading up to. Decide your style and start from there. People fail to understand that what makes people like Criss Angel, and David Blaine Unique is they have there own performance style, as well you should have, or develope your own.
