The latest book from Jeff Stone, Diary of a Madman is an eclectic collection of ideas, tricks, presentations, moves, and routines ranging from card controls to mind control and mind reading. Sprinkled in amongst the madness you'll find card magic, voodoo doll magic, stuff with pendulums, the zodiac and more. The variety of each effect when combined together can make a complete show with texture, and take your audience on an emotional journey from the silly to the intimate, the scary, and the creepy all in one show.
Over the Mountain
Use this technique to prove that you can truly read the spectator's thoughts as you prove that you know exactly what card she was thinking of.
Flying High Again
A drawing of a superhero comes to life as the spectator witness the image change and they even catch a glimpse of the superhero drawing fly!
You Can't Kill Rock and Roll
When spectators ask you a stupid question, this is the answer. They watch you stick a pencil right through a guitar pick (and several other variations).
An excellent twist on "Bank Night" that is the easiest method you'll ever do, and stitches your whole show together from start to finish, and unlike typical versions, this version has no "losers." Everyone who plays walks away very happy with the end result.
If you like creepy, dark, and voodoo, then you'll love this one as you get the spectator to do your dirty work for you, and of course you've predicted the outcome in chill-inducing way. They won't forget this one any time soon.
In an intimate moment between you and the spectator, s/he divines your zodiac sign.
S.A.T.O. / Strange Voyage
If you do cards across, you will add this extra bit to your presentation. If you don't do cards across, you'll start doing it, and you'll add this extra bit to your presentation.
Diary of a Madman
We wrap up this madness with a story about . . . well, madness. A man driven insane by the ability to see the future predicts the outcome of events even while locked away in an insane asylum.
