The Gift of the Magi
Disc one is titled "Magician 24/7." In the impromptu Tribal Piercing, you appear to push your thumb through your ear. It's a bit of geek magic that you can do anytime and just about anywhere. McBride also published this trick in Tom Ogden’s "Idiot’s Guide to Street Magic."
McBride offers several variations on the Magic Wishing Rainbow. Here, you produce a rainbow streamer from your empty hands, and depending on the variation, turn the streamer into a dollar bill for tipping or a rose. The trick is easy to learn and perform and relies on the usual method, and McBride offers insights into using the effect to connect with others and leave a physical gift, as well as the gift of a magic experience.
Abbi McBride teaches Magic Bubbles, an effect that she always carries with her. You blow bubbles into the air and catch them on your hand. A spectator chooses a bubble and finds that it's turned into solid glass and gets to keep it.
Fast Hands and Cards
Most magicians will be familiar with the Bead & String Mystery. Here a string mysteriously passes through a spectator's finger. McBride offers a compelling theme that talks about breaking free from bondage and negativity and gives the bead and string to the spectator as a gift.
A fantastic card trick, World's Fastest Hands is a quick, two-card effect. You find two selected cards in almost no time and the first card appears to turn into the second card. An offbeat effect with a message, No Smoking involves the vanish and production of a cigarette and a theme that encourages others to quit smoking.
McWallet offers a strong signed card to wallet. The power of this routine lies in the fact that McBride mysteriously inserts the card into his wallet twice and to accomplish this, he teaches excellent and entertaining misdirection.
Heart Connection offers an amazing transposition of two signed playing cards that McBride has turned into something of a heartfelt experience. McBride offers a discussion of the dancing cane in Prisna's Dancing Cane, but does not teach techniques or a routine.
An offbeat effect, in Shark Fin Pin you cause a safety pin to seemingly tear through the fabric of a jacket without harming it. While this sounds like that old trick that is in many beginners' magic books, this is different, very visual and intriguing.
Lead to Gold
McBride offers valuable techniques to produce or giveaway your business card in a magical way. Business Card Connection is an entertaining way to produce your business card that is based on a manipulation technique that McBride taught on his earlier manipulation DVDs.
In the Mcquick Tip Trick, your business card turns into currency and then you pull your business card from within the bill. A great trick to use when tipping.
McMINT offers an amazing "signed card to impossible location," in this case, the ending involves a breath mint case. While the effect is great on its own, this one is worth studying for the "convincer" that involves a torn corner. It's an impressive method that you can apply to any "impossible location" effect.
