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!

Here is a real slice of Chicago featuring magicians, TV horror show host Svengoolie and Marshall Brodien.

- It’s like your own private lecture from Rich Ferguson on card techniques…
SPONSORED POST “I didn’t start doing magic until my late 20′s. If I saw magic on television, I’d try to come up with a way it was done. Most of my thinking was ‘wrong’… but led to some very useful tools I use in my magic today! It’s time to share it.” - Rich Ferguson [...]
- Your Rabbit Is Woefully Misused…
Today’s Magic Bulletin had a mention of magic show rabbits and it made me miss my pet bunny (Liu the Master Killer… rest in peace bun-bun!). I went to make my sweep of YouTube to find the latest in magic videos and found this waiting on my front page. It ain’t magic, but it really [...]

- L7 Returns With Rob Zabrecky Video
It is not a secret that I am a punk rock kind of guy, so it should come as no surprise that I have a soft spot for L7. The all girl rockers haven’t released an album in something like 15 years (which, frankly, makes me feel a bit old) but they are back. They [...]
