Not really related to traditional CJ, but does anyone know some good sites for card manipulation? Not tricks, mind you, but things like flourishes etc.

Thanks all

My juggling guru's (the friend who taught me to juggle) first art was card magic, its hard to explain what he is doing, but check out video footage of cardini doing his stuff and that is what my friend can do but nowhere near as good.

I'm sure shifty has some sites you could check out, I'm surprised he hasn't put anything up yet, since all he does is sit at home and wait on this site, oh and juggle a bit I'm sure. :-)

Yeah I do Card manipulation of both the Closeup and Stage styles. If you are looking for things such as flourishes, I am sorry to say the internet is not the best source. Magicians don't like to tell their secrets.. And when they do tell them, its for money. The internet isnt exactly profitable for them to start teaching online now is it? :) However I can recommend some good videos and books if you would like to learn, or if you don't have the money, Give me your email address or your AIM name, and I will tape some videos for you and send them for you to learn. If you are only looking for flourishes and not whole "tricks",Then I would recommend looking for

The Art of Card manipulation Volumes 1-3 by Jeff Mcbride (Video)

Card College volumes 1-6 by Robert Giobbi (Book)

The art of card manipulation by E.S Anders (Book)

Card Technique volume 3 by Lennert Greene (GREAT video, but very hard to find)

Expert At the Card Table, Cannot remember autor. (Book)

All 5 of these sources are great tombs of knowledge for card flourishes. Thumbfans, 1-2 hand fans, cuts, false cuts, running cuts, showers, one handed shuffles, 2 handed shuffles, false 2 and 1 handed shuffles, kips, passes, crimps, steals, palms. Hell I could go on and on. If you are just starting out, and know nothing about card magic, start with Card College 1, it takes you step by step starting with the basic holds and such.

WEll that should do it for now. If you need more help, or want me to make you some videos let me know, I'm around here as Micky pointed out.

Why, yes, these are balls in my pocket. And I'm also happy to see you.

Thanks! I'll look some of that stuff up - I think there's even a place in town that sells some of it. I was just hoping for some skill-building for free! I don't have AIM though, so I'll try to get some of this before troubling you for videos.
