Slydini

I can't embed this video, but it's a half-hour of amazing close-up magic by one of the greatest sleight-of-hand artists of all time, Tony Marucci, who used the stage name Slydini. In November, 1977, he appeared on Dick Cavett's PBS show and performed a half-hour of table tricks with cigarettes, coins, and a rope. Pure style in action.

Cavett writes about the experience here, and the video is about halfway down that page.
