    Default theory11 + Linking Ring :: Submit Questions

    theory11 is working with Linking Ring columnist Cliff Bumgardner to create the magazine's first ever interactive article. In Cliff's column, "The Sit Down", he interviews some of magic's top pros to ask for advice and insight for today's young and up-and-coming magicians. But this time, he's not asking the questions. You are.

    For his next article, a Sit Down with theory11 Artist Jason England, Cliff is giving the theory11 community the opportunity to have their questions answered and printed in the January issue of The Linking Ring magazine.

    You have one week from now to post your best and most thought-provoking questions that you would like Jason to answer, right here in THIS forum thread. After the week has passed, Cliff will go through all of the questions and choose the best ten to be featured in the article.

    You may post as many questions as you like, but remember to keep them meaningful. Chances are "What is your favorite deck?" won't cut it.

    With your question(s), please include your name, age, and location. Keep in mind that these may be used in the article, so by posting them you give printing permissions to Cliff Bumgardner and The Linking Ring.

    To kick this off, I'll go ahead and ask my first question for Jason.

    Jason, have you ever had a situation in your life where you just wanted to stop working with cards and give them up? If so, can you explain what provoked your decision and how you came over the roadblock?

    Jason, what do you normally do when you are just opened a new pack of cards. For example: buff it, microwave it, etc.

    Jason, which (sleight of hand) move did you learn first and is it something you still use today?

    Jason, all of us know you are a card technician, historian and collector.
    During performance, will you get confuse or struggle to use what sleights or technique?

    Thank you.

    Jason, you have spent a lifetime studying gambling techniques with cards and have become one of the world's most foremost experts on the subject. Another one of these experts is Steve Forte. Can you talk a little bit about your friendship with Steve Forte and how each has influenced the other? Do you have any interesting anecdotes about the two of you?

    Mr. England, at what time in your life did you realize that you wanted to do magic as a career? As a young magician I finally decided I want a career and life in magic and I feel that the revelation has impacted me in a way that I feel different now. Did you ever have an experience similar where you knew exactly what you would do and knew everything would be different?
