In the USA, we have a new magician in vain of David Blaine, only a little more weird.

Obviously these are just illusions, but even other magician's right now are saying they don't know how he does some of this stuff.

Gotta see this one:

The link doesn't work. Anyway, I've always thought this guy was pretty brilliant, despite his strange persona. He's neat.

I'm sure you could say that about any magician.

*Magician* sucks, because he uses *props*.

*Other magician* is better, because of my personal preference.

using props and gimmics are one thing, but stooges and camera tricks thats not right. and this has nothing to do with my personal preference. I dont like Blaine or Angel, im just saying Blaine is better

Everyone fails some tricks, those are not shown on tv. The stunts Blaine does is the real deal, the "stunts" Angel does are rigged and its almost impossible for him to fail. and most of them are escape stuff, not magic

Both Blaine and Criss Angel suck, but Criss Angel is the least annoying.

At least Criss Angel does illusion tricks, but Blaine is a TRICKLESS MAGICIAN.

Just to quote Chris Rock:

- "David Blaine spent 40 days living in a box with no food, and only water. That ain't no magic trick, that's called: "Living in the projects".

No, no. Blaine and his illusions are great. I have no interest in even trying to recreate that. I'm not jealous in the slightest. That comment was from a television series - Arrested Development. The protagonist's elder brother is a magician/illusionist.

Nasse: You imply that Blaine is a better magician than Angel because Blaine doesn't use camera tricks. Yet arguably his most famous street-magic trick (levitation) blatantly utilises editing/camera-trickery.

What we see on TV is NOT what people on the street see.

i know that, on the street he does the balduchi levitation, then later hes wierd and that is cut into what we see on TV.
But thats the only trick Blaine uses camera trick, everything else is the real deal

Are you a fan of Derren Brown? Is he famous in Norway?

He's by far my favourite magician, although he'd hate to be referred to as a magician.

Derren Brown is amazing, before he was a mentalist he was a great magican. The skills that Derren has developed is just amazing. I actually know how he does some of his tricks =)
But hes not famous here in Norway, i dont think that is that many ppl who know who he is.
