A while back I saw a repeat telecast of David Blaine's street magic and I was wondering you guys can enlighten me on one of the tricks he performed.
I'm refering to the one which he tells us, in terms of the viewers watching on TV at that very moment to stare at a pack of cards which he is flipping. He told us to concentrate and remember ONE card. Next, he displayed the card and it was exactly the card I was focusing on. Any idea how did that happen? I'm really curious..
I've seen a video on the web of another guy doing this- actually because I saw the ad on Yahoo and couldn't believe how terrible it looked, so I went to check it out. It's really awful- he even sings about how cool he is. He's like if you took David Blaine and made him more full of himself and then locked him in a room with no entertainment except for the Crow movies and old motley crue cds for 10 years or so. You'll see what I mean.Originally Posted by Vsire
Anyway- I watched the trick in slow motion- the entire second half of the deck (or so) is the card he displays, which is really the only one you have chance to remember, as the others go by too quickly for you to get the number/suit at full speed, in all likelihood.
Yeah...I think that's basically it.
Either what Denim said or the card directly in front of the card he wants you to pick (it's predetermined) is trimmed down so when he ruffles through the deck it will be visible for a split second longer. You can also pause on that card for more emphasis. I hope that made sense.
You are dissing Chriss Angel? The guy blows David Blaine out of the water as far as the stuff he does. He also has a Show on A&E which is on tonight if you want to check it out for yourself. The guy is simpley amazing.Originally Posted by DenimDemon
His magic looked pretty impressive.Originally Posted by IdaMAN
I could do without the image and theatrics, or at least without the image and theatrics he has decided to use.
Ya, I understnad what you mean. It is like it is a stage performer who does extreme street magic. He does the floating thing about 5 feet higher than David.
The guy is a freak... or should i say, "MIND FREAK!!!!!"
It's not actually magic people.
Quick, someone call CNN.Originally Posted by Chris Russow
i dont think his magic is all that great, it no longer has the power as we first saw it. But his performance peaces are still interesting to some degree.

-Girls like big strong men, all the other men has to find a niche or a thing they supposedly love, you know...like saving whales or reading books, to get laid.
-Look..first I am scared little freezing virgin munk, but then I bare my self and I am nothing like a freezing virgin!
-Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke, he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today.
