There's a theory in magic that your audience should be able to describe your magic to their friends several days later. If you believe this theory, this effect is not for you.

Think of it as Red Hot Mamma/Chicago Opener on speed. The card is selected and signed. The back color changes. Then the signature vanishes. Then the back color is back to original. Then the signature reappears. Then the color is back to blue.

Are you confused? I was.

That's not to say this DVD is without value. If you're into card mechanics, there's some lovely stuff to be learned.

The second section of this DVD covers some business ideas, especially for restaurant workers. Everyone has their own ideas about how and where to work and market yourself. Personally, I agreed with almost everything Ed had to say. In fact, I think this section is the real gem on this DVD.

The last section of the DVD is an alternate "for magicians" version of Ed's Materialize taught on his first DVD.

You Blue It! - A selected card from a red backed deck is signed on the face with a blue marker. The signed card then turns into a blue backed card as you exclaim "You Blue it", then the signature visibly vanishes from the card, then it turns into a red backed card and all appears normal as you say "I would like you to have a souvenir". You then put the signature back onto the card and turn the back to blue once again. Then the card is given to the spectator to keep and the deck can be openly spread. No gaffs!
