It takes zero Intelligence to attack Criss Angel, when someone does it they know straight away they will illicit the help of the 'wolves' ravaging to add their two cents again on the topic.

Venom is the easiest thing to spew and often it comes from people who have been either 'threatened' in some way or who have some need for advantage.

The bottom line and the fact that speaks again and again is this.

Criss Angel has won more awards then any other magician in history.

you obviously onlylike david blaine because you dont like CA, all of david blaines tricks you can buy here on penguin, or go to a free trick site and find out how to do em, though CA does use camera tricks, alot of his stuff actually is illusion(not using camera tricks), what do you have against CA? david blaine's style(of magic) and personality is better, but that doesn't make him a better magician.

Do you know why so much of his tricks are on the internet? Because he is popular and people want to be like him. What do I have against Angel? His overuse of camera tricks, paid actors. His attitude toward David Blaine. His exposing of effects on TV. His cockiness(spell?) And this http://www.penguinmagic.com/discuss/vie ... p?t=110163

I am saying I am not a Criss Angel fan, and Im not all great with blain, just blain doesn't use as many camera effects, and I never really seen him use stooges. Angel makes the laymen actually say it's camera tricks. My girlfreind saw criss angel when we where at the beach, and she said thats not magic, thats just TV. I bet you Criss angel could blow his head off with a stick of TNT, and blood, brains, and everything go on the audience, and he walk around with no head, and people with there lips stuck to criss' [edited] would think it was real. Criss loves the computer, and computer effects. Why don't he get into CGI?

I think the problem here is that a stage magician try to peform street magics. Chris Angel is a stage magician. He is probably a great stage magician but I never seen him perfom on stage. Like most people, I only seen he peform street magics which are awful.

rofl Angel owns Blaine any day of the week...did you hear Angel's challenge? he challenged Blaine to a showdown that he can replicate any trick Blaine does, and if he cant then he will retire ON THE SPOT...he challenged this a while back too,and again very recently but Blaine know's he'll loose so he doesnt even try, or respond to it

Ozzietheoz(i think thats it) i know you like David Blaine a lot. I want you to know i am not only on angels side david blaine also gave me a boost in magic. i read his book and it really enlightened me. I stood up for him when people said he sucked and had no skill because i knew what he went through. Also i do think it was wrong of angel to attack david blaine like that. WE are all magicians and we should be with each other not against. I like both Angel and Blaine. It is okay for you to like both too.

Of course it is, I used to like both until I saw Angel's camera tricks and paid actors.

That's the same ignorance that both Angel and his fans share. Magic is not a competition, magic is an art, that's why Blaine ignored him. Both Angel and his fans care about being better than others, "oh I'm better than David Blaine, if I say this enough, people might think it's true." "I can do anything you can do, even though I would never be where I'm at without you". The only reason Angel challenges and insults Blaine is because he is insecure and have self esteem issues.

By the way, how would Angel replicate Blaine's effects? How will he do the simple switch? Blaine does it on the spot live and Angel sends them a video of him doing nothing and these people going "I my god! How'd you do that!?", is that how?

what ever ozzie your ignorant.

angel wants to impress the audience of his show. So he does that kind of stuff. So what? you dont watch it... why talk anymore. YOur not a fan, then just say it and go onto something else to talk about. I dont dislike baline, he is a major influece/ idol in the magic art. Both are supper rich and supper great magicians who have done many similar things.....

Actually they haven't done very similar things. Blaine do not use camera tricks in half his tricks. Blaine does not use paid actors in half his tricks. Blaine did not expose tricks on national television. Bloaine did not ever badmouth Angel. Blaine did not ever disrespect Houdini by dancing all over his grave.

[quote="Shelhorse"]I know there’s going to be a lot of arguing in this topic, but I just have to say it. Criss Angel sucks, I prefer David Blain over Criss Angel. I use to like criss angel when he did the stage performances, but when he started going out in the streets, he brought the camera effects with him too. It’s one thing to use stooges on stage, but another to make it look like you actually can split a random stranger in half, saying you actually can make people pass out because of a flier you handed them. In real life, criss angel would be put behind bars, because he would have to get a release form signed by the people reading the fliers, because they could get hurt. I just really hate criss angel. I know magic is fake, but criss angel just makes people think that all street magic on tape is edited, and actors are involved.quote]

So. i don't think anyone cares if you dont like him, i know i dont. so why are you telling us.
and all the people i talk to like him, the only people i hear say he use's stooges and editing are all the magicians on this site.

WHY IS EVERYBODY GETTING SO MAD ABOUT HIM EXPOSING THESE THINGS ON TV GEEZ
the toothpick trick isnt even worth doing every1 knows what happens to it, the styrofoam cup is dead obviose, the only good one is the lipstick one, so just let it go and stop whining about every little thing Criss Angel does and focus on ur own, PLEASE
another thing, David Blaine is just really good at performing tricks, good quick hands etc, Criss Angel acually thinks outside the box and tries new and different things that stand out, look at his stage performances

Dont forget the salt shaker effect. And that's not really thinking outside the box, it's called stage magic, stage and close-up/street are two different things. :roll:
