I'm just not interested in this particular guy lol... he doesn't seem too bright, talented, or to have any performance talent to me at all. The way he acts makes me think he smokes pot or something lol. Flow is a nice effect though, but I kind of think he got a little lucky with the method, and he really only improved an existing effect on top of that too, so its a little over-hyped, I mean its not like he invented an entirely new effect really in my opinion. Its good though, I'm just saying he doesn't deserve the credit the advertising hype with flow gives him, and I don't think he has the performance talent to back it up either.
I kinda agree that he doesn't have a whole lot of performance talent. He did 2 card monte during his show and it was just kind of a joke because the place was all magicians anyway. He has this kid up their and the kid was holding the cards. He would ask the kid something like which one is one top and the kid was just sitting there, not responding. He slowly started to tilt the cards up to flash an ace to the audience. Dan fixed his hand and he started to do it again. Slowly starting to show the cards to the audience. 3 times Dan had to fix his hand. The 3rd time Dan just held his hand down. He looked up and said, "I amliteraly holding his hand right now".
But where did you see him act that makes you think he smokes? He doesn't smoke.
I was just kind of making fun of him because he says am so much lol. I don't think he is bad or anything, and Flow is a great effect I know of his, but I don't think he lives up to the hype about him from his recent effects' advertising either lol. I mean like I said Flow is a great method and effect, but the effect has been around and he just greatly improved the method. I mean thats great but not worthy of all that praise in my opinion lol. Of course I don't know many of his other effects either so they could be totally original AND a great method too idk. I mean if he is good at creating effects then I guess he could live up to his hype but idk really. And I know he's not any better of a performer than I am either because he is nothing exceptional there for sure lol.
Well he has-
"re-wrapped" -very gimmicky, but I'm pretty sure it has been done before.
some gum penitration -gimmick but your left clean and I'm pretty sure that has been done before too.
"Sleeping Queens" -gimmick but it's not that bad. Completely examinable and I've never seen this done.
"redline" -gimmick but you can make it so that you don't have to hide the angles. Original as far as I'm concerned.
"flow"- you already know
"lit" - is that considered a gimmick? It kind of is but it's examineable at the end. No clue of the originality.
"shrinking Finger"- gimmick but I don't know how bad the gimmick is. Completely original.
"riot" -gimmick but again I don't know how clean you are. Rising cards have been done before but this is the best I've ever seen. Makes fallen look like crap. (I think fallen actualy did that on it's own.
