Hey guys, long time (and i mean LOOOONG time) no speak.

I recently felt the nostalgia of my days performing our fine art for friends and co workers. The truth is, I grew up in the 90's and 2000's enjoying learning magic but i had to put it aside and , well , basically lost interest about 4-5 years ago. Not too long ago, i read about Jay Sankey coming out with 3 huge books (definitive Sankey) and I thought to myself "Hmmm what a perfect way to get back into it" (Sankey being my favorite performer) . So last night i logged into my penguin account and had forgotten that some digital downloads i had purchased were still available so i quietly sat late last night watching Daniel Garcia's "Greeg" video on my PC.

Anywho ..... I am now browsing through the store and it is crazy to see so many new faces and effects coming out. I was hoping some of you guys would be able to recommend some stuff that i might have missed in the last years (I remember my last purchases were Greed and Boris Pocus, lol that video was so entertaining ot watch, too bad i no longer have it) This should give you an idea of when i stopped performing lol ....

I'm basically looking for visual effects that can be done impromptu if possible, although i don't mind using a gimmick if the result is worth it.

Thanks for the input guys and hopefully, it won't be another 5-6 years for my next message ;)

Maybe i can word this differently, (I found posts with items to look out for in the advice section)

I want to know, what effects made your jaw drop to the floor when you saw it ?

One effect i remember seeing about 1 year ago (was just browsing through the store for fun) was a signed card that was put in a special clear case and you would see the card visually change (I suspect the case is gimmicked lol) but i really liked the visual effect .... Another one a friend of mine did a few years ago is the one with the water bottle where you remove the cpa and nothing falls out of the bottle but with the snap of the fingers , voila .... water everywhere lol ...
