East meets west! The results are absolutely stunning! Shoot and Apollo spend much of their performance time in environments that are just flat out loud. Too loud for clever patter and repartee. Facing this serious problem on a nightly basis drove them to create visual magic that would pop the eyes out of unsuspecting audiences without a single word.Cultural Xchange is a compilation of fourteen of the best items in their repertoire. Each is a totally visually head crusher that the eyes see, but the brain just cannot believe. Shoot Ogawa is the recipient of the prestigious Magic Castle's "Close Up Magician of the Year" for 2002.
Shoot has jumped to the top of the close up world also winning the MacMillian Convention's Close Up contest in November 2002. He was also featured on the cover of Magic Magazine in the March 2003 issue. This amazing young man is fast becoming a superstar of magic.
Apollo Robbins has taken the opposite route. He has been working nonstop in Las Vegas for CEO's and celebrities. He first became a rumor to magicians as the incredible pickpocket at Caesar's Magical Empire. Most of Apollo's incredible material is still shrouded in mystery. This DVD is his first visual release. You will be astounded by his magic, his deep thinking and his performance. This DVD is a Bob Kohler Magic Exclusive. It is only available on this site or if you're lucky enough to see Apollo and Shoot lecture. It is not available anywhere else. The DVD is full featured and will play in any country. Each of the performance pieces on the DVD are accompanied by music...loud, fast music. This is to simulate how their magic appears to spectators in the real world.
You will see that times for professional magicians have changed. You need high impact visual magic that is quick and to the point. All of the fat has been trimmed away. Of course, you could easily add appropriate patter but it's the overwhelming visuals that are the stars of this show.The material is coin magic and card magic. Why? You don't have to burden down your pockets with all sorts of props. Just some cards and some coins. You're loaded for bear! Before this DVD was available, I've personally seen magicians offer Apollo and Shoot the price of the entire DVD to tip Trinity or the Neo-Purse Frame...they are that good.
All of the magic on Cultural Xchange takes cutting edge magic to the next level.If you want to take your magic to a higher plane, I highly recommend you get Cultural Xchange or you will soon be fooled by those who did. This material gets my highest recommendation.
No matter how much you bet, you will always win. Make your bet for hands or trails, and the coin will fall according to your choice. It's a double-headed coin.
Use it as the closing act of a card routine, in mentalism or just to seduce Demi More.

This is a brilliant device of Bob Sheets for holding out and secretly delivering a pea. A stack of four poker chips is hollowed out so that it can hide one pea like an invisible fourth shell. The pea and stack are magnetic, so that the pea is easily lifted away with the stack of chips. The pea can be stolen in and out of the stack just like moving a shell. Four magnetic peas are included along with four matching single chips. Whether wanting to hold out a pea without having it in the hand, or whether ringing in and out a second pea, this incredible device makes working the shells a breeze.
Works with any shell set
Absolutely angle proof
Bob Kohler's routine for the Shell Game has become legendary. Why, because Bob's routine is used by more professional magicians than any other routine of it's kind. Bob's routine has been honed through thousands of live performances for paying audiences.
What makes it so great? The psychology is built in. Bob's choreography and patter are designed so that the performer knows which shell the spectator will choose each and every time! This lets you concentrate on the performance so you get the standing ovation you deserve.

When asked to name his favorite trick from the many classic routines he created, Slydini would always say, "The silks." This trick, now known throughout the magic world as Slydini's Knotted Silks - is a masterpiece of magic. The silks don't change color or transform into birds but they do something just as mysterious - they magically untie themselves. Even under increasingly impossible conditions - even when the spectators tie the silks together themselves - they still melt apart.
On this DVD, you'll see three different presentations of Slydini's wonderful brainchild. Steve Draun is up first with the basic routine which obviously befuddles and entertains his audience and can do the same for yours. Jim Cellini, one of Slydini's prized students, is demonstrates how a little bit of theater and music can make this routine play even on the largest stage. Finally, Bill Malone shows off his very funny routine that turns the trick into a spectator challenge of sorts, inevitably creating the kind of chaotic fun that Bill is known for.
Slydini's Knotted Silks is a magical classic and its creator not only entertained and mystified audiences all over the world with it but also baffled some of the best minds in magic in his day. Now, with the help of this DVD and three master magicians, Slydini's legacy can be yours.
Knotted Silks - Steve Draun

Anthony Asimov's ALIEN CONCEPTS DVD series spotlights 9 out-of-this-world routines designed to captivate any earthling. Featuring Asimov's full 45-minute live show, over two hours of explanation, and the secrets behind his most closely guarded effects including "The Skulls of Anarchy" (a matrix-style effect using tiny stone skulls and Tarot Cards), "The Alien Thread" (Asimov's innovative colorful twist on the classic "Gypsy Thread" illusion) and "This Is Nuts" (a powerhouse showstopper), you will learn strong visual magic from an innovative magician that will boldly take your audiences to new places. Bonus materials include three visual performance-only routines that Asimov regularly performs in his close-up show. Asimov's magic has been seen at hundreds of college campus performances, Off-Broadway, on TV, and he is a member of the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood.
The Alien Concept
An eerie journey in thought manifestation that uses a toy plastic alien and a burst of light to make an alien face appear on a signed playing card being held tightly between the spectator's hands.
Cosmic Appearing Cards
Three cards randomly named by different audience members suddenly appear inside of a hat that has been inspected and sitting on the table the entire time... ends with a diabolical twist.
The Alien Thread
Asimov's visual and clever update on the classic Gypsy Thread plot enhances this stunning effect with new and colorful (im)possibilities.
The Twin Card
In a self-working routine, a spectator pairs two cards together using only his decisions and a single die.
The Skulls of Anarchy
A surreal and visual matrix-style effect that uses supernatural props... 3 tiny stone skulls, a gemstone, and 4 Tarot cards.
The Cloned Cards
A mind-boggling yet simplified version of the classic Wild Card routine where a stack of duplicate cards unexpectedly begins changing one at a time into a card the spectator "accidentally" chooses.
This Is Nuts
A showstopper... a card freely chosen by a spectator appears inside of a walnut that is randomly selected from a bowl of walnuts on the table.
he Untamed Dollar
In a baffling routine with a borrowed dollar bill, a walnut, a shot glass, and an empty card box, the dollar seems to have a mind of its own when it starts vanishing and reappearing in unexpected places.
A Close-Up Encounter of the Third Kind
After three spectators select and sign their cards, they are shuffled into the deck and then revealed in visual ways... the first is torn and restored, the second teleports to a tiny box that's been in view the entire time, and the third visually changes right before the spectator's eyes without any cover whatsoever... signature and all.
The ultimate portable edition of one of the great books of all time. Dr. Nicholson's edition of the Discoverie of witchcraft.
This is a very special edition of Reginald Scot's The Discoverie of witchcraft. We scanned our copy of the very rare Brinsley Nicholson edition of 1886 (the printing was limited to only 250 copies). This is considered by many to be the most desirable of the various editions of Scot and this is the first time it has been available in Text-over-Image PDF format. Brinsley Nicholson was the first, and most thorough researcher into Reginald Scot and the Discoverie. Amongst other great details this book is why we know some personal facts on Scot and also about King James ordering the book burned many years after it's publication.
