Amazing JoeJoe’s Super Spinner with Penny Reel Technology

Posted by Editor on December 18th, 2014

The Amazing JoeJoe re-invented thread work with the release of his original Web Spinner, and now he is about to do so again with his new “Super Spinner with Penny Reel Technology”! The new Super Spinner is just as simple and elegant as the original Web Spinner making levitation easier, more practical, and even more fun than ever before!

New animation sequences that work sitting or standing with no special lighting or clothing required, not even a shirt pocket! Special focus on three dimensional origami art to create multiple methods for folding dollar bills into objects you can levitate that are the perfect size, shape, and weight for invisible thread work that are easy to hand out for examination!

New methods of handling that eliminate the need for messy wax and body loads! Instead, JoeJoe provides a crystal clear invisible silicone putty that leaves no wax residue to clean up! Plus methods on how to ditch the wax/putty right in front of people, or just use his waxless rig that doesn’t use any wax or putty at all!

You will receive not one but TWO Super Spinners: one preset with a 20 foot long single strand so you can start levitating right out of the box! The second is set with a 20 foot long strand of unstripped thread to reset the first one (black wooly nylon). DVD instructions teach how to setup both Spinners so you can carry 40 feet of invisible thread (two twenty foot single strands). Buy more Sharpies and make more – no expensive devices to buy ever again!


If you are on a budget, you can purchase just the DVD and supply your own materials – at least two Sharpie magic markers, magicians wax, tape, and invisible thread. There are no modifications to the magic markers, they are prepared straight off the store shelf, and like the original Web Spinner you can use any color, any length, any brand of thread you like! And yes … they can be even longer than 20 feet!

Merry Christmas (2009) From Dan Sperry

Posted by Michael on December 19th, 2014

A few Christmases ago, Dan Sperry posted this little twisted magic how-to on the the ol’ Interweb. It is magic for Christmas, not Christmas magic.

Yeah, maybe we should just call it quits for the day after that… So Mr. Sperry wraps up another Video Friday. As always, iTricks is hoping that all y’all have a great weekend whether you are working, practicing for that next show, finishing your holiday shopping or just starting your shopping! Happy holidays!

The Real Ralphie: Jean Shepherd

Posted by Michael on December 19th, 2014

For many people, A Christmas Story has become traditional viewing around the holidays. Sure, It’s A Wonderful Life is swell and all, but the story of Ralphie and his quest for a Red Ryder BB gun (with a compass in the stock) is a true classic. Jean Shepherd, the film’s narrator, was also the author of the original story (found in the book In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash) and a prolific humorist in print, in magazines such as Playboy, and on the radio. For years he had a show on WOR where he just kind of told stories and talked about the events of the day. Here is a short example of his storytelling style which just kind of leaves one wondering how much of what you have heard was actually true…

Boxer Vs Magician

Posted by Michael on December 19th, 2014

It is no secret that your humble reporter loves magic and fighting. So when I run across a video promising a gold medal Olympic boxer punching a magician you can bet I will be watching. What we have here is Neil Henry, London magician and magic shop owner, taking a shot from Audley Harrison, super heavyweight boxing gold medalist at the 2000 Olympics. Even though Audley is retired now (I think; he hasn’t fought in a while) and spending his days doing things like the UK version of Celebrity Big Brother, I am willing to bet he can still throw a decent punch! You have to respect Neil for pulling this off…

Collins Key Battles A Fan

Posted by Michael on December 19th, 2014

It’s Video Friday! Yes, yes, yes, no! Wait, this might be the last Video Friday of the year since next week is Christmas and all. Wow, where did the year go?

Let’s kick off today’s videos with this new release from Collins Key. It is actually kind of hard to keep up with Collins because he keeps up a pretty constant stream of new content (check out his YouTube page), but this is kind of a cool one. He is having a magic battle with Lauren Doss, the winner of a contest to get a visit from Collins. I like this for a few reasons, including the fact that I was just saying to someone that magic needs more battles (like old school hip hop MC battles), Lauren is a St. Louis girl (magic capital of the universe) and how many teens have magician posters hanging up in their bedrooms? Sweet! Congratulations to Lauren.

Cool PC Sorcar Sr Poster [Magic On The Block]

Posted by Michael on December 18th, 2014

DISCLAIMER: does not endorse or guarantee the following item nor have we been compensated to feature said item.

Fair warning: I am going to start bidding on this, too. I think it is pretty awesome.

We have gone over the career and legacy of PC Sorcar on iTricks in the past (in a two part article you can read here and here). Even though he was a huge believer in spreading around his posters, he only very rarely performed in the US. Posters are not always easy to find in the States, but there is one up for bid right now on eBay in an auction that runs until Saturday. Shown at the right, the poster is 20 by 30 inches and looks to be in decent condition, with a few creases. At time of writing, bidding is at $25 plus $10 shipping. If you are interested in snatching this poster away from me (or getting it for me for Christmas!), you will find the listing right here.
