The Stupid Bean Trick
"I've been doing Brother Paul's Bean Trick for over 15 years. Until now it was one of the best kept secrets in magic. This new version is a well made magical tool that will delight you and your audiences." Jeff McBride
It's amazing how things work out. The Stupid Bean Trick is basically Paul Fox's Confetti to Beer Trick from the early 1930's. I was blessed to find some of the gimmicks and developed my routine. The gimmick was made of steel and it rusted quickly.
So today it has been designed and manufactured from a 3D printer, it's easy to use and my full routine is complete covered. I give you all of the bits and tips that make this the amazing effect that it is. It's easy and packs small and is "Street" durable. The new design is perfect.
I've always wanted to receive magic in the mail that I didn't have to go and look for other parts to make it work right out of the box, so I make sure you have a package that has everything you need to do this right out of the box.
Here is what your receive in your box:
• The special made gimmick made of hand detailed,3D printed pla.
• A can that fits the gimmick.

The Street Rope Trick
The Street Rope Trick is a simple rope routine that uses basic moves that are easy to learn and execute. Here's what happens...
You pull out a piece of rope that has a knot in it. You slide the knot down the rope to the other end. Then slide it to the middle where it magically disappears.
Next you tie a shoe lace knot, explaining it is a magic knot that disapears when you pull
the ends. The you tie it again pulling the ends through the loops making a know that seems to be impossible to get out. You slide it down rope and then it too disappears.
You produce invisible scissors and hand them to someone. You tie the rope into a loop. You take the "scissors" back and cut the loop. Once cut, you untie the knot and magically restore the rope to one piece again.
Then you take the rope and place the two ends in your pocket and proceed to magically have the two ends, in the pocket, changes places with the center that is in the other hand.
You are left clean and ready to do a ring on rope trick or stop there. Choices. It's up to you.
A great routine for street because your rope will last for hundreds of performances. Close up, parlor or stage this routine is fun, easy and a fooler. Enjoy it.
This ships with the DVD and the rope to make your first set up. I would have made it up for you, but you need to make it yourself to understand how to do it. It only takes a few minuets and you'll be able to set up any magicians rope at anytime you want to perform this little miracle. One set up will last you hundreds of performances.

Think of a Card
by Chet Wallace
Back in the mid 1970's I met a man named Chet Wallace. I was working the Magic Castle then and Chet was helping Vernon with the piano in trade for magic lessons.
Chet had this little pet effect with a deck of cards that kept fooling all the magicians. It's a think of a card routine.
• Any deck shuffled by the spectator
• They think of ANY card from a spread
• You shuffle the cards and reveal their card
• You only memorize 4 cards!
Simple, direct and clean. It's a great trick to do anywhere you can borrow a deck or use your own.
He gave me the rights to print it up and so I did. Illustrations are by John Hughes and they are step by step hand views.
Nine pages and 12 illustrations will get you there...
I published this little booklet in 1982. I found a box of the original printing. When they are gone, they are gone. Digital download is available.

A very special writing from John M. Hughes
Written in 1982
Here is a special piece for the wall of every magician. A reminder of who they really are and the power of what Magic really has.
This is the 1st printing from 1982 - The ONLY printing.
This 37 year old artwork is printed on real parchment. They are all in "NEW condition." This is John's own hand calligraphy. At first glance you'd think that is computer generated print fonts. Definitely not. Look closely at the e's and the other letters you will see small discrepancies that show its authenticity.
I just found about 100 more of these in the bottom of a box. This is a true treasure. Wow, 37 years in a dark box.
Snag one before they're gone. I'm so proud to see these again and when they are gone, they will be sought after by collectors. This is an exciting offering for me.

If you're like me, I have dry hands, maybe my age, who knows, but I still do work that requires that I have a good youthful grip. This age old secret fixes that problem
Just put a drop on the tip of your index finger. Use your thumb, of the same hand, to rub that drop along the tips of your other fingers and where you need it most. Truly, it only takes a drop. Not greasy. No odor. Try it!
