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!

- Fujiyama Kohtaro Presents Edo Period Magic At TEDxTokyo
I have been sitting on this video for a while… It is Fujiyama Kohtaro presenting tezuma, the classic Japanese magic of the Edo Period (1603 – 1868) at the TEDxTokyp back in May of 2013. The act is silent, accompanied by traditional music, and Fujiyama’s opening narration had been dubbed into English. It is one [...]
- Video Friday Kicks Off With A Little Medium Busting
Hey, it is Video Friday again! Let’s kick it off with another gem from the British Pathé archives. They list this footage as being from circa 1930 and do not credit the medium-buster featured.
