Call it Magic or Illusion

David Blane
-or-
Chris Angel

I, as a few of you may know, am into things beyond common recognizing.

Does anyone follow Blane, or C.A.'s Mindfreak show? If so, what are your thoughts....

I've seen Blaine's street magic on TV. Sometimes I'm convinced he's the devil himself. Now I'd like to know how he does even one of his tricks... Tat, do you have any of his tricks to expose?

I have seen how Blaine does the trick where it looks like he levitates right off the ground in the middle of the street. I will not ruin it for anyone, but I will say that once you know how he does it then it is really quite boring. You are better off not knowing.

I refuse to watch them because I get so aggravated that I can't figure out the trick. No rhyme nor reason to why it bothers me so much.

So his soul isn't in hock huh?

I had the same feeling about David Copperfield. I used to find him handsome, but now, everytime I see his face, I'm convinced his appearance is developing a distinctly devilish mien.
