I just ordered a few new coin magic tricks from good 'ol Ellusionist.com
I'm looking forward to their arrival and I'll be sure to update the product review here. Here were two of the coin effects that will be added shortly to my close-up arsenal.
SLAM - Coin Merge
SLAM is a coin merge illusion that looks like one step up from the Karate Coin. You borrow two coins and slam them together. The two coins are fused together and can be handed out immediately for examination. I'm always looking for the off beat coin magic trick that is different from the classic coins across, 3 Fly or simple coin vanishes. Check out the video demonstration of SLAM
Silver Dream by Justin Miller
I'm a fan of coin flourishes that vanish and reappear. They all stem from some inner child having coins plucked behind the ear. I liked the presentation of this routine and the independent vanishes look good. Ofcourse for walk-around magic, my go to trick still remains Ron Bauer's Gadabout Coins Revisited, but I'm looking forward to working with the Silver Dream DVD
I'll be sure to update the post with my comments once they arrive in the mail!

- (An Even Younger) Kyle Eschen Performs
Kyle Eschen was also on this week’s episode of Fool Us, which just reminded us how much we love watching Kyle perform.

- Justine Chats With Collins Key
No one at iTricks Tower Midwest is familiar with Justine Magazine, to be honest. We are more into Genii, MAGIC, Vanish and comic books… go figure. Anyway, they recently posted this video featuring a chat with Collins Key. We know who he is!
- Ryan Joyce Behind The Scenes At Fool Us
Between the moving and the lack of DVR at any iTricks Tower Midwest location, permanent or temporary, we missed this week’s episode of Penn & Teller: Fool Us. When we streamed it later, we were blown away to see friend of iTricks Ryan Joyce doing a stage illusion! Ryan told us that he had been [...]
- Thommy Ten And Amelie Going to AGT Live Shows
Billed as The Clairvoyants, Thommy Ten and Amelie Van Tass amazed (and probably scared) the judges on last night’s America’s Got Talent to join several other magic acts in the live rounds.

- Sos And Victoria Magically Go To AGT Live Shows
After Simon Cowell criticized the dancing of Sos and Victoria in their last performance, they turned to a few illusions to spice up their quick change act in the latest round of America’s Got Talent.

- Blake Vogt Jumps Into The Live Rounds
We’ll be honest: we don’t remember seeing Blake Vogt audition for America’s Got Talent; was it even aired? You probably know him anyway, though, from Fool Us or as a consultant to the Now You See Me films or as an magic inventor. His performance during the judges’ cuts definitely was seen (watch it above) [...]
- Magician Wants Back On AGT, Wayne Dobson, More [Magic Bulletin]
We are leading off with a online feature America’s Got Talent posted on its YouTube page about Steven Brundage.
