Very nice. I know you have a review on Control, is it really that good? Is it impractical?

I don't do walk around but is Chris Kenners stuff good for walk around? It seems like it would considering that's what he says a lot about certain tricks in TOOC

It is the most practical trick I know. You can do it anywhere, as long as you have an arm and a functioning heart. No angles, as Danny Garcia says in the DVD, "So... Like, I could be on a nudist colony and do this? Like, no clothes? No gimmicks?"

You could, but as Wayne says, "You could... But I really don't recomend going to a nudist colony.

UBER practical, really powerful, really great. I think very close to real magic.

Yeah. Some of it, anyway. TOOC has a lot of tricks that would be suitable for walkaround. A lot of the 1on1s would be as well.

I can't really see Control being a great restaurant trick.

Do you know it? In some situations, it would work.

No I don't. But how can stopping your pulse and freaking people out be good for restaurant work? You are supposed to be entertaining them, not scaring them.

I would imagine so. I might give you a call later (probbably email though) because I need some info about restaraunts and working at them.

This is a rough example of my restaurant repertoire.

1- Earplugs, sponge balls, or sponge snowballs (Created by me)
2-about face
3-nightshades
4-Color crayon fusion
5- Ambitious card

Just one question, why do people always say "ACR routine"? Its just something that bothers me whenever I read it. I'm sorry to some of you but its not your world famous, 16,000th time rising card to top of deck ambitious card routine routine. haha.
