Anyone who can't tell the difference between the Miami Vice look (solid color matching pants & jacket with open neck shirt or t-shirt) and The Blue Jacket, shouldn't be giving out fashion advice. ;)
STRAW THROUGH HEAD
'Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic' by Martin Gardner (Page 536)
This is an hilarious sight gag/trick. You take a straw, in it's wrapper, and you poke it in your left ear while, at the same time, pulling it out of your right.
Very easy to do. Impromptu. And very, very funny.
EXPERIMENTS WITH EGGS
'Modern Magic Manual' by Jean Hugard (Page 158)
Reading this you wonder if there wasn't a time when magicians did a lot of stage manipulation with eggs.
Sounds a little odd, given that we do all that stuff with rubber billiard balls nowdays.
But the more you think about it, wouldn't vanishing a real egg, or multiplying them, look really quite amazing today?
Anything that makes you stand out from the pack has got to be good!
