Merry Christmas FREEBIE from Kranzo Magic!!!



Never underestimate a good whiskey. 

Never underestimate the power of a good card force.  

Never underestimate the power of a good SIMPLE card force 

The Behind The Back SHOT

How it works!  

The Force card is FACE UP on the bottom of the face down deck.

Offer the FACE down deck to be cut behind your back by someone.

Have them cut off about half the deck

Ask them to come from behind you....or back up, so you are now even with them.  

Face front for a moment and while your the deck is STILL behind your back use your left thumb to flip the bottom card to the top.  

It revolves around the deck and face down in the process.  Bring the deck to the front and offer the top card to the person on your left as the card cut to.

IN this case the 9 of hearts was reversed on bottom and was flipped around to the top into force position.  

The deck is clean.  

Inspired by Annemann and Al Baker.  

HAVE FUN!!!!!!!

A Zoo Gig


Yesterday I had the luck to perform at the Toledo Zoo next to the Cheetahs and Monkeys.  It was fantastic.  

I was hired by a private company to come in and entertain about 100 guests in the Africa Room (a beautiful private meeting place nestled deep inside the zoo).

I was given the boardroom to prepare for my show and sit in private before someone would come along and take me away for showtime.  

While I was sitting and relaxing I noticed some weird noises coming from outside.  Nobody told me there were several monkeys outside the doors!  

Just outside those three large doors you see in the photo below there was a giant enclosure full of some of the most amazingly beautiful creatures I'd ever seen.

They are Colobus Monkeys and when they are born they are completely white!  They have long flowing white tails almost like a main on a horse.  

I walked outside and immediately they all noticed me and they all gave me a look in unison like "check out this guy?  .....who is this dude??"

They just stared at me for about a minute then slowly went back to what they were doing.  But one or two of them kept a good eye on me to make sure I was "cool".  : )

I walked up to them and one of them walked right up to me and made faces at me.  

I tried to show them a card trick but they weren't buying it.

They gave me some peace and some great energy.  They were very cool dudes to hang out with before my show.

Monkeys rock.

Reviews For Tru Test!!!


Reviews for the TRU TEST are coming in and so far so GREAT!!!!  

Here is the first one posted at Jheff's Maketplace Of The Mind

Nathan Kranzo's mentalism products have been spotty, to say
the least. His demo videos and instructional videos have
been, let's say, "quality-challenged." However, this is
actually something I have to give a thumbs-up and there is
no instructional DVD. It's simply an update on the classic
Grant test, as indicated in the blurb. This test was a big
influence on Ted Karmilovich's THE MOTHER OF ALL BOOK TESTS
and one could see this as a magazine version of that, if one
needs to get more of an idea of what this is.

The original utilized a Reader's Digest and this uses a Time
or Newsweek. So the pages are larger and slicker. One side
of the page features a photo of an astronaut and the other
has a photo of jellyfish. There is a generous amount of
text on each page. 

The word list has also been updated. Every word can be
visualized. Now, I've only performed it a couple of times,
but one of the words in the list is "intercourse." I can't
wait for someone to choose that and have them visualize it.

The package comes polybagged with 100 copies of a magazine
page and a folded 11x17 card. The instructions are in the
inside of that card. It takes up the equivalent of two
pages. Kranzo explains the basics and provides some ideas,
none of which would be new to the experienced mentalist. 

At $100, and with 100 copies, that's about $1 for each copy. 
That's not really a bad price, I suppose. Kranzo suggests
you have a page inside a magazine, have it ripped out, and
then it's torn into pieces. One doesn't have to do that,
though. I think Kranzo did a good job updating this classic
for the 21st century.
