Since I put out the call for the Cups and Balls Clinic, I have received a few more questions.
I am am a beginner; is this going to be difficult/worth it for me?
Because this is a Clinic, the emphasis is to inform, excite and entice you with knowledge. Everyone has a sense of how hard they want to work to learn something. Some of the Templates I will talk about are dirt simple, others are quite difficult. I want you to know your options and how to incrementally build yourself up to more and more challenging feats. So yes, it will be worth it.
I already do the Cups and Balls; is there really anything new to this presentation?
I suppose it depends on how you define “new.” Perhaps it is easier to give you an example. In the book Card College Vol. 2 there is a routine called Homing Card Plus in which a selected card repeatedly travels to the magicians empty and examined pocket. The big finish is when the entire deck vanishes and reappears in that pocket. Structurally this routine is the Cups and Balls. The point is, when you understand the structure of a standard Cups and Balls routine, you have a template you can apply to anything!
I own a combo chop cup/cups and ball set. Will you talk about gaffed cups etc.?
As a matter of fact I will. Personally I think it is a waste of money to have a Combo Set, yet I believe a stand alone Chop Cup is a valuable, if not critical, tool. If that statement seems to contradict itself, come to the clinic and get the nuances that make the difference.
I know you said there is a money back guarantee, but I just don’t see how this Clinic is applicable to what I do.
While I’m not dumb enough to make the blanket statement “everyone needs this,” I think it is the rare magician that cannot put this knowledge to good use. Of everything I’ve ever taught, this is probably the most important, and yet at the same time it is not common knowledge. As mentioned above, these ideas transcend their classic medium and can be used with just about anything you can find, regardless of your environment.
