How To Stop Blushing
Reach into your right pocket and fingerpalm the phony bill as you take out the pen. This bill is still folded into quarters. Hand the pen to the spectator and have him mark the bill. Make sure the spectator folds his bill basically the same way you did, with the same color surface showing. Take his bill fromhim and act as if you are trying to read his mind. Say, Ifyou see Pie blushing, it's because I'm filtering out what he did last weekend This puts immediate attention on the spectator and you now calmly switch the real bill for the phony bill. After this relatively open switch, the phony bill is held at your fingertips and the spectator's bili is concealed in a right fingerpalm. Don't sweat it. They are completely mislead as to your intention.
These behaviours, known as back-channel signals (Wiener et al., 1972), can be expressed through a number of modalities. For example, interest is typically indicated verbally through vocalisations including uh-huh's and similar grunts (Argyle, 1988), facially through smiles (Brunner, 1979), and posturally through head nods, forward or sideways lean and drawing the legs back (Bull, 1987). Negative reactions can be signalled through frowning (Argyle, 1988), lowing the head or turning the head away, as well as adopting characteristics of a closed posture, such as folded arms (Bull, 1987). Pseudopsychics can similarly use these (generally unconscious) responses to gauge the appropriateness of what they are saying. In the pseudopsychic literature, commonly recommended measures indicating acceptance include eye blinks, leaning forward, dilated pupils, slight head nod, blushing. There are fewer signs for negative reactions, possibly since absence of all of the above would be...
Brown treatment of the Thought-of Card Across plot (see the aforementioned Wandering Card in Willane's Method's for Miracles, No. Three, 1952, or Trevor Hall's The Card Magic of Edward G. Brown, 1973, page 39), and is therefore related to The Blushing Leaper. (I think Jordan's Unknown Leaper see his Four Full Hands, 1921, page 27 plays a part in this history, but it would take some work to figure out exactly where.) Unlike The Blushing Leaper, it has no kicker ending. Fortunately, because of its construction, it doesn't need one. Frankly, I never expected this effect to play as strongly as it does for lay audiences. I, therefore, originally relegated its use to once in a while, when I was sitting around with non-magician friends. After a few performances I knew I had a blockbuster. This is as strong an effect as anything you can do, and I present it that way. It doesn't read nearly as well as it plays, and magicians aren't nearly as impressed as lay...
Shy, because you were blushing, because you were a choir girl type person, because you were very pure, and because you didn't use bad language, and that you kept to yourself, and you cursed modestly, and that you were somewhat laid back and quiet if your husband was attracted to all of these different tributes to you, and you're still the same person, I think that he'll always be in love with you.
You will need to prepare a joker by coloring its face with a red pen, to make it blush. You will also need two normal jokers. (In impromptu circumstances 1 have used the jack of hearts as an ersatz blushing joker.) Start with the blushing joker set between the two normal jokers. Perform a Stanyon Count, showing the red-faced joker among diree normal ones. With his blushing face, you always know exactly where he is unless I turn the cards face-down. Do so. I'll mix the cards, so that you don't know where the blushing joker is located. Perform a Stanyon Count. Do you know where the blushing joker is Before the spectator can respond, say, I will give you some help.
Another angle of the patter presentation is to tell the story of the hero of true blue, using a double blue handkerchief, and the hero-een of blushing red, using a red handkerchief. Then comes the double-dyed villain for which you use a silk of many colors with one blue corner extending out of double blue silk. The hero and hero-een get married and knotted together. Then the villain says, I shall get between them yet. Jerk out the silks from the glass, after vanishing a duplicate handkerchief for the villain, and show that the villain has come between them.
MANY YEARS ago, Jack McMillen developed an effect ( The Leaper Card, n.d.) that is clearly related to, but somewhat different from, a card problem later addressed by Edward G. Brown (see Wandering Card in Willane's Method's for Miracles, No. Three (1952) or Trevor Hall's The Card Magic of Edward G. Brown, 1973, page 39). The McMillan approach became popular for a while but fell into relative disuse. As I see it, apart from procedural differences, the distinction between the two plots turns on a fine distinction whether the card or the number is thought of first. In the McMillen plot a number might not be thought of, but might merely be noted. My Blushing Leaper revives the McMillen approach but employs the practice of having the number thought of first, as in the Brown problem. I find this easier for spectators to follow. I've also applied more modern techniques and added an intriguing, albeit non sequitur, kicker ending.
Effect You spread a blue deck, first face up and then face down. Walt removes a card and signs it, then replaces it in the deck. He taps the deck and says, I love my card. You spread through the deck and in the center is a card that is blushing (red back). You turn it over. It' s Walt's signed card This card is placed aside, as you turn your attention to Vandella. I'll do an even better trick for you. In fact, I'll guarantee it You remove your wallet. You won't even have to touch a card. You go through the deck until Vandella tells you to stop. Show her that card and then square the deck. A card you are thinking of is now lost somewhere in the deck. Please blow a kiss at the deck. Your card won't just blush like Walt's it will also have lips permanently embossed on its face. If it doesn't, I will give you twenty bucks She blows a kiss at the deck but when you spread it, there's no red card. Embarrassed, you say, I don't get it It worked with Walt's card You turn over Walt's card but...
