I doubt that I’m the only one that gets distracted when cleaning up the magic pile. Today I was organising my DVDs and decided to take a break at look at one of the Johnny Thompson videos – #2. For some reason, I wasn’t thrilled when I first watched this series, even though I’m a huge fan of his. When I brought up the menu of performances, I was intrigued to see what Trumph was. It may seem obvious reading this, but it never occurred to me that it was a simple misspelling.
Anyway, Johnny described it as the perfect card trick. After watching him perform and explain it, I tend to agree. I’ve been using John Bannon’s Play It Straight Triumph recently, but I believe I’ll go practice my Strip-Out Shuffles and put the Vernon classic back in my working repertoire.
If you haven’t seen it recently, pull out this DVD and enjoy a classic in the true sense of the word.

Everybody’s A Critic
This is my best buddy and magic watcher. I’m lucky to be able to take him to work with me every day. Normally, whatever I do is OK with him, UNTIL I pull out the wand. He’s learned, from experience, that when the old man starts practising his wand spins, the floor is no place to be.
Invariably, I find him huddled under the desk or in the corner until I’m done. He finds card tricks boring, but safer.
Unfortunately, when I start doing card tricks I find the human spectators huddled in the corner…..
