Venturing into New Grounds

I am known as a close up card magician. I am really into cards more than any type of magic. Lately I have been rereading other books on magic theory and more on presentation points. Most of this books are more on mentalism and this has made me think that I could incorporate more of this mind-reading and mental effects into my routine.

There are two things which made me venture into learning mental effects. One is my left wrist had an injury and I might now be able to do card tricks and other sleight heavy close up magic if this injury becomes worse. This is also why I really do not write much in my blogs anymore.

Also what pushed me into venturing into mental effects is that I am seeing very bad mentalism acts on TV. Acts that supposedly come from psychic powers from the performer who is claiming to have honed it through the years. I mean why the hell should I believe him when all I see is him duplicating drawings which could be easily done. As for his other effects, all of these are readily available in the Internet.

I really couldn't forget how he did White Star by Jim Crithclow (a Titanic themed act) to people who might actually be to young to know about the ship or even to see the movie. I mean if this was done 13 years ago then it might have an effect. However for teenagers, I mean do they even give a damn about it?

The worst thing that he did which bothered me a lot is that he claims to talk to the dead. I mean if you brand yourself as a mentalist, then you shouldn't brand yourself as a genuine spiritualist. Capitalizing on grief and emotions from the relatives of the dead is really very disturbing especially when you talk about the ethics of magic. I think that the network airing the show should reconsider about continuing a show with an obvious charlatan who claims to have powers.

Anyway, with all that ranting, I just hope that people I could show to more people what does really mentalism look like without any claims of possession of supernatural or paranormal powers. I want to share an experience of real magic and astonishment instead of sharing something which you obviously know is fake.

I Hate Mentalists who claim they are real psychics ahem Nomer

I have read in a news article that a local TV station here is doing a special on one mentalist here in the Philippines named Nomer Lasala. I have to say it it is interesting but at the same time full of BS because of the fact that the one who will be performing claims that he could do psychic phenomena.

I've seen this guy a lot of times on television, he does the standard mind reading, spoon bending and other mentalism routines. I think he's okay but claiming that he could do it because he has psychic powers is really nothing else but BS.

In the article he said “I was in a hurry because the school bus was already there and when I looked at my lunch box, it slid towards me,” he offered. “Although I cannot do it (telekinesis) now.” It really sounded like Uri Geller to me when he was asked to do a live performance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

If this guy claims that he has psychic powers, I could say that his powers come from most of the magic DVDs or effects that are available in the market. Watch the video below. This video came from his own YouTube Channel and I should say that even before him, David Blaine had done this and the exposure for it on YouTube is way too many.

Another thing I hate about him is that he has this video talking about bad things in magic. You are a mentalist claiming to be a psychic so don't pull other magicians down with your stupid statements. Magic Tricks are really about deception above all but magicians use it to entertain not to make people fearful of it nor to make people believe that the lies behind it are the truths in life.

Also please stop claiming to be a psychic and just perform and stop telling those stories wherein you have those psychic abilities. If ever you are reading this, I could tell you that most of the things that you perform could be duplicated with known methods in magic. Bending spoons, reading minds, psychic touches as well as the ones shown in your video above are all from known commercial magic effects. So please drop the BS and just perform, stop claiming to be psychic and just be a mentalist that performs and leaves people happy.

I think when I see his new show, I'll just laugh at him and in the process I might blurt out each commercial effect or known magic method that he is using. We'll see where his show will go.
