do people still use the safety pin method taught in the original tarbell course for misers dream, or are there more modern superior ways to do it??

For a parlor type setting, I use this: http://themagicwarehouse.com/cgi-bin/fi ... word=MISER. It is super simple to use and I only use two half dollars (the reason will be obvious when you buy it) and at the end I like to make all the coins disappear. It works well for kid's shows.

see, i REALLY like the idea of having a bucket full of coins, more and more and more, because then it REALLY gives the sense of WHERE ARE THESE COMING FROM?!!!

I don't normally suggest getting books, but I'll make an exception in this case.
Get Bobo's modern coin magic. It is the bible of coin tricks. It has a section with a few different approaches to the Miser's dream. I suggest you go with whatever feels best to you, and don't be afraid to innovate.

Just a question: WHY don't you suggest getting books?

I agree with drewer, books are great, I've avoided getting bobo's book because I have the DVD (someone gave it to me) but it seems like there isalot more material in the book

I prefer to deal in specifics. It would be hard to do that with the Miser's dream without bordering on exposure, which penguin frowns upon.
For example, when he asked in a different thread how to keep "swallowed needles" from tangling, I can tell him how to do that without telling people how it's done. I don't need to refer him to the book I learned the trick from. (Particularly since that book has been out of print for decades.)

You may wish to check out Chris Caphart's miser's Dream DVD. Very nice routine that only uses a handful of coins, and an ungimmicked aluminum bucket. I highly recommend it!

See it here: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S8593
