So I've read every page of Joshua Jay's new book. "Magic - The Complete Course" is remarkable piece of work. Although the target audience is the general public, there are absolute gems within these pages.
Of the many effects that caught my eye is "Ovation Position" - a wonderful opener that ends with the production of a drink. So the search is on to find a glass (actually durable plastic) that will travel well and be available for future performances. While virtually any glass will work, I'm looking for a tall, tropical looking one. It's visually appealing, and would be a great addition to my Postcard Act, during the imaginary flight to Hawaii.
So that's where my head is at today. If you haven't checked out Josh's book, do it.
