A Deck of Cards…but a Cool One.

Sentinel CardsAll right, so I was was surfing the Web the other day when I happened across Theory11.com.  What initially arrested my attention was the playing card section—specifically, the Sentinels.  The video on the linked page is illogical—everyone in these videos happen to walk around with playing cards in their pocket, should the need to pull some next-level slight of hand stuff arise.  I want the cards because of the secret societies-related imagery.

The Web site also sells materials instructing the slight of hand tricks mentioned earlier.  Apparently, this is called, cardistry.  Whenever I think of sleight of hand movements, I automatically remember the movie, Smokin’ Aces because of a character, Buddy Israel (played by Jeremy Piven).  Israel is a Las Vegas magician, so he is constantly utilizing cardistry in his movie appearances.  It is a great action flick with an awesome cast, including Ryan Reynolds, Ray Liotta, Ben Affleck and Alicia Keys (to name a few).  Looking at the DVD on the shelf, I think I am going to watch it now.  You can find Hulu clips of the movie here.
