From the Mnemonics performances- are they still amazing? Magic Cafe thread, which I talked about in an earlier post, Dr. Wilson has a great new take on an old classic.
Hidden at the bottom of this post is Dr. Wilson's handling of the classic list memorization of 20-30 items:
I no longer ask for objects, I ask for things from their memory. We collect all of their memories, then I make them mine as well. We have all shared something, which gets away from the freak show that mnemonics demonstrations can become unless handled carefully.
It's always a challenge to get people interested in what you're doing, and gems like this can help greatly.
