Packed with Loungers as usual this Saturday. Mindreader/Hypnotist Peter Zenner was in and the discussions turned to psychokinesis as a vehicle for mentalism. Roger Curzon felt that to display too wide a range of pseudo-psychic abilities could be counter-productive. Interesting point.
I’ve played around with invisible threads and ITRs, and have had some success with a floating banknote routine. But that’s clearly a magic trick (though not to everyone, I recall!). For me, something subtler works better; a slight twitch or a slow movement rather than a full-bodied float? Have been using Andrew Gerard‘s Energy Bill for a little while now. (Available on DVD.) Not sure it would work with non-US currency, but it does! Excellent, impromptu, no gimmicks. Effective? Ask Peter.
A range of Kenton Knepper DVDs arrived recently. Includes one on the magnetic attraction business with canes. Not seen this for years, but it’s something I remember Peter used to use very successfully.
Mustn’t forget Adam’s Weekly Wheeze this time:
All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand.
Well, it has the merit of relevance.
