This is without a doubt the most important download penguin has ever put out. I've been struggling
for years to memorize a deck and never got anywhere. I've tried a lot of the stuff from Mneumonica.
I've tried a bunch of stuff Simon Aronson recommended. I've spent forever trying to work on
memorizing a deck based on a memory palace but I changed my mind as to what system to use way too
many times so I never even completed making my system.
But now, here I am. I just finished
watching the video yesterday. Penguin just uploaded the accompanying PDF (with some bad mistakes in
the text underneath a few of them. Somebody really should have reviewed the text at least one time.
The pictures are all correct so its obvious when the text is completely describing the wrong thing)
and now here I am. I put in under 2 hours practicing and reviewing so far and I'm already correct
about 95% of the time and I assume by tomorrow I should be at 100%.I never dreamed it would be
possible to memorize a deck this fast. I wish this would have came out years ago. Now I just have to
go back and find all those tricks I couldn't do because I couldn't memorize a deck....
Thank you Rick Lax!!!!
Here I am one day later and I'm now correct 100% of the time. I'm in shock at how fast this went.
It did take a lot of effort becoming more familiar with many of the pop culture references that Rick Lax made that I was completely unfamiliar with or learning some facts I didn't know.
I would have expected some magician references but there are virtually none. I don't think that was the smartest choice. i and most other magicians could better remember things with magician references than many of the other totally random things Rick Lax named.
I'm still too slow to use this in the course of a show but in another few days I should be fast enough (I hope...) Some numbers pop into my mind immediately, other ones I have to think for a few seconds which is not something I can really do in a show. I hope to have this ready to perform in a week.
I see that Penguin removed the PDF. Good for them. The mistakes on the PDF were awful (twice they have completely the wrong story with the wrong number in the text). I look forward to them putting up the new fixed PDF soon.
Looks like they had to edit the video. SpongeBob Image is whited out. 😬
