Quantum Space/Quantum by Calen Morelli Review  (Live Performance)
Calen Morelli independently released this "impossible visual" of magic temporarily to the public. I was one of the people fortunate enough to receive the effect while it was available. Check out this review for my thoughts on it and for a live street performance!

Joker's Heist Live Performance
Buy on Penguin Magic: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/9269 Buy on Theory11: https://www.theory11.com/marketplace/tyler-scott/jokers-heist Joker's Heist is a project consisting of seven methods taught all based around one principle with over an hour of tutorial footage. The project has three variations on the main plot, an impromtu version, Joker's Heist Triumph, Joker's Heist Forgery, and Joker's Heist Clairvoyance. Variation #1- Bare bones structure of Joker's Heist. Joker cards are taken out of play and a spectator selects a card which will be the treasure card. The card can be signed and put back into the deck. Another card is selected to be a dummy weight for the Joker's to switch with the treasure card later. The Joker cards are brought back into play and sandwhich the dummy weight in between them. The Joker sandwhich is placed into the spectators hands. With a magical snap of the fingers, the treasure card is no sandwhiched in between the Jokers and the dummy weight has magically returned the deck. Variation #2- Tyler's personal favorite way of performing Joker's Heist. It's the same plot as Variation #1 but a little bit more difficult due to some extra subtleties that are added. The extra subtleties are worth the extra effort since they make for a more convincing payoff at the end. Variation #3- A bit of an overkill to run without being chased. Tyler provided this method just in case people wanted an extra idea to play around with. Joker's Heist Impromptu- Josh believes this handling is worth the price of Joker's Heist alone! Two Joker cards are handed out for inspection. A spectator freely selects a card and can sign it if they choose. The card is then placed back into the deck and lost into a shuffle. The deck is handed to the spectator to shuffle if they wish to or they can place the deck of cards back into the box faces down. The two Joker cards are shown front and back quickly and then are placed into the spectators hands. The spectator has the Joker cards face up, opposite the orientation of the cards in the box. With a quick swipe over the box, the Joker cards have stolen the signed selected card and it is now sandwhiched in between the two Jokers! Joker's Heist Triumph- Imagine giving your spectator the power to perform Triumph with them doing all the shuffling and handling using the power of the Jokers to help! Joker's Heist Forgery- A card is selected and signed. The card is then sandwhiched inbetween two Jokers and placed in the spectators hands. When one of the Joker cards is taken off the signature has mysteriously vanished! But when the Joker card is placed back on and with a magical snap, the Joker cards can magically forge the spectators signature back onto the card! Joker's Heist Clairvoyance- Many people might make the mistake of confusing this with Asi Wind's Double Exposure. That would completely take away from the power of Joker's Heist Clairvoyance however. A card is selected and signed and put back into the deck. A fan of cards is made and the spectator holds the fan to where they can visibly see all the cards facing them including their signed card. Their cell phone is borrowed and a picture is taken to show them what the magician can see to find their selected card. When they open up their picture gallery there is their selected card that they were looking at the entire time opposed to every other card facing the opposite direction!
Pyro Pen by Adam Wilber/Ellusionist Review
Sorry for the delay of this video. The original that was sent to me was defective. I wanted a better unit to give it a more fair review. I still have issues with this unit but at least now I get to try it out.

Stay Cool by Tobias Dostal/Ellusionist Review (Live Performance Included)
Music by Chillhop: http://youtube.com/chillhopdotcom Bonus Points - Pizza and Video Games: https://soundcloud.com/bonuspoints/pizza-and-video-games Update: After the shooting of this review I found out that not only is this a terrible product, it's a ripoff of another magician's work. Florian Zimmer had this same effect and was performing it in the early 2000's way before Tobias put this out with Ellusionist. So much for having good ethics and treating other people's work with respect. Hypocrites!

No Pressure by Tyler Scott Trailer
100% Impromptu Version: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7184 Download here: https://www.theory11.com/marketplace/tyler-scott/no-pressure No Pressure is an effect where you can borrow a spectator's empty water bottle, have any one attempt to crush it with the cap sealed, and they are unable to due to the air pressure of the bottle. With a snap of your fingers, you can then magically remove the air pressure from the bottle and anyone can crush it at that point. The spectator can keep the bottle as a souvenir. There is no switches and you are clean while they try to crush it and afterwards.

Meeting Darcy Oake! //Magic Vlog #5
They say never meet your heroes. In this vlog I break that rule. What had happened was I won a magic video contest ran by The Morning X with Mark Mackenzie in Windsor, Ontario with the first vlog I ever uploaded. It's nice to win a magic video competition that isn't biased heavily. Darcy Oake was really friendly as you can see in the video and just seems like a chill guy. I give my own thoughts of his show at the end of the video.
Vortex by Dan Harlan Review (Live Performance Demo Included)
My apologies for my absence on uploading YouTube content. Also, I apologize for the lack luster performance. I had only half an hour to prepare for the set that I was doing and I decided to go with Rick Lax's teaching which was quick and easy to learn. I think the audience enjoyed it over all. Will definitely be keeping this in my routine.

Acme Hole by Lloyd Barnes Review/Rant
Please watch the entire video before commenting. I understand that this video is very long and I understand that Lloyd has many fans but I'm just trying to hold the magic industry accountable for putting out better quality products. I'm pro consumer and I'm trying to educate my viewers to the best of my ability without exposure to help them in making educated purchases. I hope you will approach this video with an open mind. The next reviews should have live performances and I will try not to have an almost 20 minute rant. They will be more informative and hopefully more positive. Thanks for sticking around guys!
Magic Civil War: Calen Morelli vs. Rick Lax vs. Ellusionist?
Link to discussion: https://www.reddit.com/r/Magic/comments/4b5x9u/your_thoughts_on_rick_lax_and_calen_morelli/ To clarify, I'm not really taking sides in either case. I have a lot of respect for Calen Morelli, Rick Lax, and Ellusionist. I have supported all three and love the effects that they have produced. I am perhaps not the most proper authority to be discussing this so I would love to hear everyone's thoughts in the comments. I would really like to hear the thoughts of people like Patrick Redford, Dee Christopher, Wayne Houchin, and Mickael Chatelain. All of those guys have worked for both Ellusionist as well as Penguin so I feel that their professional opinion would offer some much needed enlightenment. I hope everything works out in the end!

Doubting Thomas Trailer
Buy the trick here: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/6353 Doubting Thomas is a brand new up close visual effect. It's a method that can be used to put objects through a performer's hand. Hands are fully examinable before and after the trick is done. It has an instant reset and very little set up. Both gimmick and impromptu versions will be included.

A Moment of Weakness- Magic Vlog #2
Okay so a little context. This video was made way back in January right when the YouTube policy change was first announced. It's a bit old information but I thought it would be interesting to show some of the struggles of being a start-up magician and my thoughts and feelings towards that.
