seems like a real kind of a magician dude
14 September 2006 | by (Moose) – See all my reviews

I kinda enjoyed these things until I started to dabble in in those things myself. The thing is: television makes stuff a lot more real than it really is. And it makes me sick that Blaine is trying to sell all this stuff as real magic. All that spiritual stuff and people saying wow this guy is a *real* magician. And standing for three days surrounded by some ice blocks. Even an idiot should know it doesn't really make a difference if you're standing in the middle of the street or inside some blocks of ice. But Blaine got some serious frost bites and couldn't walk for weeks. Maybe that's the real magic. That was the contrivance in the previous "piece of work" from that guy. What's really interesting in this particular one is Blaine going to Haiti and to some tribes in the rainforest of wherever. This old lady, after she's been shown the trick, makes a reference "you must be really smart". The children mostly seem to know what's going on. You would think those people would be the first ones to be fooled. But maybe this is just another one of the tricks. Back to the Blaine guy, it really makes me sick he's trying to pass these things as real, and the naiive audience on the streets (and even some famous people, they seem to get paid a lot) are just contributing to the whole scam. A lot of magicians these days use some "explanation other than trickery" so they at least look credible, but saying *all* this stuff is real, come on, jump on the wagon.
