Are you talking about REAL magic or illusions? I have preformed REAL magic-and I have done a little in the way of illusions, too.

Alan Thicke or Robin Thicke?  Or "Howard is really thick" :D



I like David Blaine's card tricks as well.  They are illusions, but what I like is not knowing how they are done.  The best magic is when you don't know the answer.

I like street magic.  My brother John would have baseball games/ practice and I would bring some cards and things to show kids.  I came up with a performance I call cup and balls also known as shut up you little know it all brats.  Show one pom pom, put it in the can, wave my hand over it and there are two pom poms.  after hearing everyone tell me what I did I get to play upset.  Yea I had two balls the whole time squished together...  I'd end up with three pom poms when I'm done. 

added this was a while ago before my hearing loss.

Another trick I like doing is with a braclet sized ring and a string.  Wrap the string around, show them the string is wrapped around it and it's not going to fall, " I need my wand I think it's in my pocket can you hold this end for me.  The ring falls Falls as I'm getting my wand.

Other then the Magic 8 Ball ( which Howard probably uses) I don't know of any other magic balls.  Oh wait, there is one that floats, bounces, and stuff.

the guy with 3 thimbles and he hides the ball so fast he mixes the thimbles so you don't know which one he hid it in.

Okay, but the trick is performed as the person having the magic to make them do whatever.  The balls are not magic.

Tim David comes up with some nice looking stuff, but like I said I'm not interested in having him teach me hundreds of different tricks.  I bought his floating card trick and got mad at myself for not coming up with an Idea like it myself.
