With all the talk about Tarantula, it got me thinking about different effects in mentalism that could be done. They would probably be better without a reel. And would be best to try to stay away from PK type effects.

my first thought was you can name any one of 10 objects a person choose.

he's wondering what type of effects can be accomplished with an IT. Lots of billet effects can use this, it is an easier way to do the switch with nothing in your hands.

Could the Tarantula be used as a pull too?

It probably could, but there's no reason a pull would need to be that delicate.

Yes I was trying to brainstorm to see if anyone had any ideas for mentalism effects using IT, forgive me for not "asking" a question.

It is a little harder to brainstorm (for me at least, for one reason cause I'm sick) for potential uses of this beyond billets. Any paper item is usually considered a billet in my mind (that is, if you want to switch it out). Gaining information is a harder one, cause you'd have to time your peek at a certain point, and that'd be tough to do in front of a large audience I think. But yeah, that's how I see it working out, usually I'll just use something a little easier to work with than an IT, it helps me out, I'm not as concerned about how it looks to the audience when I do a switch, as long as it looks clean I'm fine with it.

I own the Tarantula and love using the haunted deck with this. I've also used it for a rising card. Either one of them could be worked into a mentalism act.

Are you two talking about the same thing?

Ruse asked about mentalism with "IT"... you mentioned billet switching with "an IT".... Am I missing something here?

Don't feel bad. I'm missing it too.

Tarantula maybe, but IT?

As far as using IT in a mentalism setting, I would think it was limited to small telekinesis applications.

Yeah... I'm thinking there's an additional meaning for the acronym "IT" in mentalism that I just don't know. When I think of acronyms in mentalism, I come up with stuff like IP or ID... PW, NW, SG... even TT. But "IT" in the context of billet work... that's a new one for me.

I think Bucky means TT (TT), as he said about billet switching. Simply s mis-understanding on his part. Hope I cleared that up.

I suspected that, but I didn't want to speak for him... plus, the "T" and the "I" are a little too far apart on the keyboard for a typical "targetting error," so I figured it was intentional.

Yeah sorry for some reason I was thinking "invisible thumb" hopefully that's not too revealing... Anyways, I still stand on my "not much you can do with it" opinion. Basically you're restricted to making things move, or something to that effect.

Completely doesn't apply. What is the purpose at all of using ITs in pk touch? It's a bendy thing, not a stiff thing, wouldn't help you at all with the secret... some people these days.
