Streamlined by John Carey
We have watched John Carey blossom into a true creative force in card magic. At The Session this year, we asked John Carey to prepare a VERY special download for us. Essentially, he has crammed an entire DVD’s worth of material into just one download, for just $10. And you know what? The material is simply tremendous. We call it Streamlined.
The crown jewel of the download is John’s simple, “Think-a-Think” effect. It’s this simple: the spectator THINKS of a card from a face-up spread, and you do the same. Both cards are found without ANY funny business or sleights. No gaffs, totally impromptu. We can’t tip the method, but we can tell you that Dani DaOrtiz would be proud. This is, for us, EXACTLY the kind of magic we seek out: strong THINK-of-a-card material that is doable in the real world, and has huge impact.
So what else is there?
Lark Hill Opener: A lovely Ambitious-esque sequence with lots of sweet, little finesse-points.
Kung Fu Do as I Do: A terrific, dare-we-say definitive handling of this classic effect wherein a spectator follows your actions.
A Little O&W: A lovely new take on Oil and Water to add to your new repertoire.
A Mystery in Time by George McBride: The legendary George McBride has kindly consented to allow John to perform this fantastic illusion, in which you combine the best elements of the Hamman’s Mystery Card Plot with Elmsley’s Between Your Palms. The result is an instant classic you will want to perform right away.
With Thanks to Justin: This is a beautiful card control sequence, and John does it absolutely beautifully.
