And do you have to do it? Watch the video below to hear my thoughts on all of these plus I talk about my biggest fear in magic:

  • Squishing Balls - Weekly Recap

    Posted on July 14, 2014 by Chris Ballinger

    Learning how to best use your sponge balls can be a squishy business. Let us help.

    This week we are talking about sponge balls... which you squish. Hence the name of this blog. We try to keep it simple here at the Magic Geek.

    This week we featured Alluminati which has its very own bonus video from us here at Magic Geek. Along with the gimmicks and standard handlings taught on the very well produced DVD, if you buy Alluminati from Magic Geek, you'll also get a link to a bonus video with two super-visual new ways to perform the effect.

    We also talked about a bunch of Sponge Magic Props including 3D Sponge Rabbits, Mad Sponges, 1.5" Super Soft Sponge Balls, Sponge Ladybugs and Sponge Bananas.

    Don't forget to check out next week's episode where we will be talking about performing magic at children's birthday parties. We need your questions for that, so don't be shy, post your questions in the comments section below.

    Before we get into the Weekly Recap I wanted to post the Mystery Box Giveaway Drawing:

    Congrats to all of the winners and if you didn't win one of the big przes, don't fret. there is another chance to win stuff happening this week. Watch the Weekly Recap for details.

    This week we talked all about floating and levitating stuff. Featured in the recap were illusions like the Losander Floating Table, DOS System, Monarch, Zombie Ball, Floating Match on Card, Invisible Thread, and Loops.

    We also talked a bit about Foresight by Oliver Smith and produced by SansMinds Magic. This is a very cool ESP effect that has a visual kicker ending that nobody ever see's coming. I love it.
