It is quiet apparent that if you have the cash flow you can be the next great TV magician!

I am sure they both were good magicians at one time...maybe. Not sure if either could do a decent card trick with help, of a camera, stooge, or a double. REMEMBER, camera tricks are the same as lip-syncing but worse! :evil:

I was so disapointed to find out Paul Harris was helping Blaine, if he wasn't in it for the money, then I am shocked that Paul would be asscociated with such a punk. Unless he stood off camera and reminded Blaine how to do simple sleight of hand....maybe Harris was the hand double that actually did the sleights!? yeah -yeah thats it!

Then Angel man, nice angle.....but his family looks like they live in a trailer park in Las Vagas somewhere, where bad hairpieces and mullets rule the day...maybe he won a lottery and said,"I know I'll be a magician and we can move into a new doublewide closer to town" He is the closest thing to Pro wrestling I have ever seen! Good TV... beer drinking, butt scratchers gotta love him!

So I ask, what's more entertaining....Pro wrestling or these chumps?
Everyone, quit supporting these fakes!

Street magic my [edited]....if either of these guys had to be a busker their hats would always be empty. :twisted:

Can you explain why you think Blaine is bad and ruining magic?

He was a pro performing in resturaunts and bars way before he was on TV. He also performed for many celebrities, such as Jack Nickelson, Leonardo DeCaprio, Madona, Michael Jackson, Mike Tyson, Robert DeNiro, Spike Lee, even Bill Clinton. He once performed for a rich man named Jefferey Steiner who was so impressed with his magic, that Steiner paid Blaine to go back to Saint Tropez with him to perform for his family and friends, Blaine was 18 at the time. His card work is probably better than most of us here, you just won't admit it. Two words, Simple Switch. I think Paul helped Blaine because he sees talent and sees that Blaine vision for his specials will help magic grow as an art, and it did. I hate camera tricks as well. But when did Blaine use camera tricks? Once, his levitation. But he actually did the Balducci and the reactions were real, it was to protect the secret, I still don't a approve it, but I understand it. That's once.

Think before you bash Blaine again, especially with the pathetic reasons you stated.

As for Angel, he's not as bad as you think he is either. He has a successful live stage show in Vegas. He's actually a pretty talented magician, after all he's the one who invented a new levitation, not you. I can't say anything about his use of camera tricks and paid actors though because of my promise. I still hate him for reasons most of you already know, really, I hate him. But I just want to say he isn't as bad as you think.

-Tony

It is quite apparent that if you have the talent and smarts enough to market yourself to TV stations you can be the next great magician and bring in the cash flow.
Im not that crazy about Angel, but maybe you should read Blaine's autobiography. And next time, know what you're talking about before you post.

When I think of street magic I think of Jeff Sheridan, as for Paul Harris your getting into the real serious sleights that not very many have.

But Criss ang Blaine are at a different level, they do a lot of different things and they seem to be able to push the envelope in many different ways and are expanding people's imaginations.

You using Harry Houdinis real name on this forum as your screen name is a disgrace to the magic comminty.

They are both great magicians off the tv and decent on tv. Both have done more for magic, than you have ever done.

That's true, even though I still hate Angel.
