I don't get what you are trying to say by Rookie Angel fans. It seems like a cheap way to argue a point.
Look at it this way, how many of you do the Balducci levitation, Shinkoh(sp?) arm Twist, Raven, bite out coin, pen through coin, or many other street magic effects? Each one of those were exposed on national television during a Fox special. Yet, you can still do pretty much every single one of those effects, and amaze people.
If you are bashing Criss for exposing magic, then bash all the other magicians who have done so too. Don't single out one person, yet respect others. Plus, what do you guys have against Criss Angel exposing con games?
Im saying its obvious your rookies when it comes to magic. You can try and make yourself sound as legit as possible but it still shows.
That was exposed years ago. And when it was MANY magicians had their friends coming up to them the next day saying "I KNOW HOW YOU DID THAT" Im sure they had to face humiliation.
.........your a fool if you actually comparing some rookie exposing a trick to his friends to someone whos getting possibly the best ratings A&E has ever gotten; exposing methods and classic tricks. On NATIONAL TV. This isnt some local religion channel.
Con games? Save the bulls***. Look, he exposed a classic method on national TV. One of the most watched shows on television. He can try as hard as he can to make himself out to be an angel (no pun) who means good. But any rational person can see through the BS.
LOOK IM GONNA EXPOSE A CLASSIC METHOD FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. Dont give me that crap. He will do anything to get high ratings to further his career. Whether its starting an episode about how he helped a less fortunate kid or weekly revealing a trick to get viewers to watch.
Imma be honest. I live in the projects. Some people do their hustles ranging from 3 card monte to basketball games. But when it comes to my community I'd rather have people trying to make dough by hustling with a shells game then selling drugs on my darn corner 12:00 at night.
People are warned about this. And their confident enough or stupid enough to go up to one of these hustlers then they deserved to have their money taken. That theory can only go so far. When it coems to things like if they go to iraq then they deserve to die. Thats when it ends.
But people need to learn that hard way. We're not talking about live or death. We're talking about pocket money. Dont act like hes doing the world a favor by revealing this. Because he aint. And you fans know this.
It may not be the most positive-moral job out there but people need to make money when there arent enough jobs. And its a hellava-lot better then then selling drugs on street corners. Who the edited does this pig-headed camera-director think he is.
I dont have a shred of respect for this fool.
