The Trilogy - And Then Some - By Dan And Dave Buck

But Jaspas Deck is not only a skilled cardist, a well-known speaker, and a gifted videographer, but has also created several decks of playing cards. In 2014, the New Deck Order team took things to the next level, by producing their own deck designed completely for card flourishing, and since then they have created several versions of their School of Cardistry deck. This deck is described as "fifty-two non-standard playing cards", and is what the New Deck Order considers to be cardistry's new standard: non-standard! The revolutionary aspect of the School of Cardistry decks is that the card faces are all identical. The abstract design on the card faces means that displays have a very unified and different look, and that not only the back of the cards, but also the faces can be used for neat presentation. Even fans, spreads, and twirls can capitalize on the face designs. With a deck like this, there is no chance that cardists with a deck in hand will be confused for magicians or poker players! The identical cards immediately become a point of interest, and set the card flourisher apart as someone dedicated to this new art form. This is definitely a deck made entirely and only for card flourishing, and its unique design helps cardistry enter a new phase of development and evolution.

The Trilogy - And Then some - by Dan and Dave Buck

His Fontaine brand began in 2013, when Zach made his own deck of cards, with a simple mirror image of a lowercase letter `f', using a minimalist style inspired by the iconic Jerry's Nugget brand. He didn't put a lot of work into it, nor did he ever plan for it to become something big. But after using his deck in several videos, he found that viewers kept asking where they could buy a deck like it. So he decided to try his hand at crowdfunding a Fontaine deck via Indiegogo. The results were staggering. After his initial effort netted him a profit of around $20,000, subsequent campaigns for the same deck design in different colors generated even more support. Zach then expanded to other Fontaine merchandise, like caps, shirts, and hoodies. The fact that he features his decks in his viral videos only helps increase demand and strengthens his brand, which today generates a six figure income. He has even been featured in a TV commercial in Japan.

So what are you waiting for? If you are at all into card flourishing, or even just enjoy doing a basic spread or fan, then a good cardistry deck will instantly turn even elementary moves like these into visual art. Grab yourself a nice deck, and give it a shot! You may not reach the heights of the Buck twins, The Virts, Jaspas Deck, or Zach Mueller, but everyone has to start somewhere. And you may just surprise yourself with how flashy and fun this new art form can be!

andthensome by Dan and Dave: contents Portal A visual teleportation of a selected card from one hand to the other. The effect combines a rhythmic display of cardistry and magic. Osh Negash B'gosh Imagine a card selected by being propelled through mid-air and caught between two mates. The card is noted and the packet placed on the table. Another selection is openly made and instantly changes into the first selection. When the sandwiched card on the table is turned over by the spectator, I find it to be the second selection. An extremely powerful table-hopping effect! Encore Perhaps the most direct handling of Dr. Daley's Last Trick ever devised. The method here is far more devious than any previous version of this effect. Two red Aces are cleanly set on one spectators palm while the two black Aces are set on another spectators palm . With a snap instantly transpose and the spectators can turn them over. Hedberg All Over A variation of Hedbergs Peak, this multi-phased routine demonstrates the transposition of two playing cards throughout the deck with each transposition becoming more impossible looking. On the final phase one of the cards is placed between the spectators' hands and the transposition is carried on Flic Maybe the easiest boomerang card technique you will ever learn. This age old method allows you to "flick" a card 10 feet away from you only to have it return to your hand. Flirt Do not blink! You'll miss the fastest flourish ever invented. M4 Hollywood In this variation of Molecule 4, packets rotate, twist, and spin around each other demonstrating a chaotic flourish. Goat A card is placed protruding face up in the deck. With the snap of the fingers the card instantly changes. The change can be done completely surrounded and you end clean with nothing but the changed card sticking out from the deck. Shepherd Change A card is placed protruding face up in the deck. On spinning it around it appears to morph into another card. You're left clean with only the changed card sticking out from the deck. Orbit This unique technique for propelling a double from one hand to the other will attract attention from across the room. Use it as a double lift or a flourish. Ginastaire A flashy technique for spinning two cards as one on the back of your thumbs' knuckle. Can also be used as a flourish. Spinning Top Mimicking the action of one of the oldest recognized toys in history called a "top". This double lift allows you to spin the cards on the deck or on a table in a fast motion while keeping them aligned. Jones Change Variation Refined with flare that only the Bucks could exude. This is an underground gem finally revealed that allows you to show your hand empty (with one card) before and after the change has been made. Smoother This impromptu technique allows you to rid the rough and uneven edges on most decks of cards. Manfred Shuffle A unique approach to the in-the-hands false riffle shuffle that borrows ideas from Ron Whol and Hank Miller. This method, however, puts the deck in full order without the need for a cut. Simpler Switch This sleight can be used as a one-for-one switch or a color change. The switch happens in-flight and the card appears to be in view the entire time. 2 Handed Pirouette You all know the classic Pirouette flourish. Now learn this really cool application that's surprisingly very simple. Dr 90210 An updated handling of the Spin Doctor Double. Spinning Table Top Same as Spinning Top, but further explained on the table. Hover Spring & Autocatch One of the coolest tricks on the DVD in our opinion. It's a sandwich effect, but happens visually with a neat flourish you probably can already do, but do not know it yet. Aerial Doubles // Tip Tips and variations on the Aerial Double lifts explained. Blind Bluff // Tip One of the most beautiful and deceptive bluff passes you'll ever learn with an ingenious touch that allows a selected card to be controlled to the top. Erdnase Go Rounder Variation of Erdnase Go Round that allows for the packet to fly through the air from hand to hand and even around your back! Back Flic Variation of Flic that allows for the card to boomerang around your shoulder. Jones Change Transpo By use of the Jones Change 2, this effect allows you to show two different cards in each hand. Without ever touching hands, you cause them to switch places. DD Square An esthetically pleasing manner of giving the cards an all-around-square-up on the table. Double Pirouette The classic Pirouette flourish done with two cards! And yes, they stay together as one.

Damadian then founded a company, Fondar, to produce a commercial version of the scanner. He was immediately embroiled in legal tussles over infringement of his patents when competing companies tried to market their own MRI scanners; Damadian lost some fights, won others (including a 1997 judgment against General Electric for $128 million). Fonar would later introduce an upright MRI scanner.

But as he told CBS News' Jim Axelrod in a 2021 interview, it felt "sad to be famous at 12 years old or something, and then you grow up and become a real person, and nothing's happening for you." Depression, he said, is "a very powerful thing. And it's had a lot of effect on my life."

We were next to "The Suzanne Somers Show," so Suzanne Somers gave me a signed Thighmaster, which was stolen by somebody because it was such a cool thing to have. It's crazy times. The stories, they're just insane from back then.

We probably went through 500 pages of bugs a week. You know, some of them weren't really bugs. Some of them [were due to a tester being confused] or something. But it would be like "OK. On level 17, Crash gets stuck in the weeds over on this part of the level and he can't get out." So we'd have to go and reproduce it and then figure out, "OK. What's wrong with the collision detection?" So there was that sort of death march of bug fixing that really hit Andy and me hard, particularly on the first [game].

I'm surprised I didn't crash my car driving home some nights late at night after working all day and then playing an hour of Doom. I'm surprised I just didn't get into some alternate mindspace where I thought I was still in the game and I ran off the 101 going home. ...

I remember this warring audio environment where Andy and Dave in their back room would have some kind of calming, soothing classical music playing, and then it would be like Henry Rollins playing out in the main bullpen area where I was.

Actually, I'm a little bitter about how I ended up leaving Naughty Dog. Just because I was their junior programmer guy and I think they were hoping that I would turn out to be this awesome dream programmer stud. It was my first game job so I really didn't know that much about what I was doing, and Andy and Dave were too busy to really show me the ropes. I think they [had] already made travel arrangements for me to go to the launch party, but then they called me into the office and said, "We decided to let you go." And somebody else, I think, ended up going. ... 350c69d7ab
