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!
- Woody Pittman’s Mismade Flag
Let’s wind up this week’s Video Friday with something a little patriotic. We dug around and found Woody PIttman’s version of the Mismade Flag. It is one of my personal favorite versions of this classic trick and a great way to move into the 4th of July. Unfortunately, Woody passed away last year at the [...]
- Non-Magic From Kyle Marlett
Kyle Marlett posted this a few weeks ago and it isn’t magic, but it is pretty cool. Kyle is meeting one of his best friends for the first time! In this age of email, forums, Twitter, Facebook and more this totally makes sense to me and probably a whole bunch of y’all iTricksters as well. [...]

It’s long weekend, happy Fourth of July, Video Friday! Let us get started with the latest episode of Joshua Lozoff’s continuing reality show Married To A Magician.

- Holo-Fairies, Magic Movie And More [Magic Bulletin]
This morning’s lead off video is Joel Meyers from KSDK’s Show Me St. Louis yesterday. We’ve brought you stories about the various descendants of Pepper’s Ghost but this story from NASDAQ.com discusses what may just be the coolest: Fairy Lights. Tiny little floating images that you can touch… or at least you feel a sensation [...]
- Young And Strange Go Street Magic
Young and Strange always manage to make me laugh… and they have done it again with their attempt to stay current by shooting a street magic video. It is important to note that they posted this video last month with only the simple comment: THERE ARE NO ACTORS IN THIS VIDEO. Catch more of Y&S [...]
- P&T, NPH, MWiR Alum And The Cubs [Magic Bulletin]
Penn and Teller may not have been on The Tonight Show last week after Jimmy Fallon’s accident, but they will be on Whose Line Is It Anyway on Monday, July 6 after the season two premiere of Fool Us. Check your local listings. That should explain the lead off video… and The CW has not [...]
