I can't tell you but I can comment. That's pretty good.

After watching this a few times it is obvious that this is MAGIC!

The balls are easy and so is the coffee. All distraction while the hand holding the cup conceals the object. The coffee is just a concealed tube with a reservoir, likely between his legs so he can squeeze it out. But the raisins? Would almost have to be pressurized tube of some sort that spit the raisins out into the cup. Its the little apple that I'm not sure about. Watch it over several times while watching his left hand and you get an idea of how it might happen.

Don't forget that all the apparatus is of his making, and you can conceal a lot in a cap and long hair.

But it is still amazing to see such illusions so well performed.

Good slight of hand and a lot of misdirection.

Agreed. From a former post, sounds like you were a detective and police officer in your former life. Interesting work and a marked contrast to the whimsical stuff you've shown on the site.

@DesertRatTom

Like many of us here, Tom, I have led many lives: military officer, special agent, business owner, senior director and, on occasion, puppet master and amateur magician. My key to keeping life in perspective has always been the ability to find humor everywhere from the jungles to the mean streets to the boardroom. As the saying goes, "He who laughs, lasts."

I my current life I play the role of Master of Nonsense & Silly Things because I have learned that life is way too short to be taken seriously.

Puppet master you ask? Well, here's my lovely partner Lola and I at a biotechnology convention about eight years ago. Just look at that face and tell me it doesn't make you smile. No, HER face, not mine. Mine just makes you laugh.

You never cease to amaze me, Oliver. Did you also build Lola?

Oliver, I'm cutting way back on business this July and looking forward to getting involved again in community theater. Will be making sets and props. For me the play is all about playing. I love hanging out in theaters, even little ones like the old USO building our local theater occupies. Puppetry is way cool, allows you to really loosen up and express yourself.
