Diversionary Session

My friend Jose opened up his home tonight to host a magic session. Thanks Jose, I needed to get out of the house! Randy, Jose and I were the only magic enthusiasts to attend. We went over some basic/not so basic card sleights. Worked a bit on the Twisting the Aces routine. I shared a couple of tricks, like Wayne Houchin's Indecent.Mr. Flynn
And shared with Randy the Mind Reader trick...
Randy is interested in furthering his repertoire in the realm of coin magic. He demonstrated some of the sleights he has. They are better than he realizes but wants to be able to do more in that area... Don't we all!? :)
Jose has been diligently working on some card shuffling techniques. They are coming along splendidly! He has a nice "memorized deck" routine with it and has callouses because of the effort to learn a new sleight! We are all realizing how much work and effort goes into what is perceived by an audience as trivial or easy. Hours of work just for a two second sleight.
Makes you appreciate those that have gone before... We played with the cut and restored rope.
Randy & Jose, Two Card Monte
Two card Monte and more. It was nice to get back into the swing of things. Sadly, with Christmas right around the corner, it looks like it will be awhile before we can reunite!
