Come on, look at the Steamroller Illusion. That was not a camera effect because I know how it was done.


Because that effect wasn't completely obvious. :roll:

Just stop bashing him is all I'm asking, you don't have to love him.[/quote]
I stopped "bashing" him a long time ago for the simple reason he was not worth my time; not because someone told me too with no justification. If he was, I could write volumes why the professional magic community dislikes this guy. It has nothing to do with talent, originality or his accomplishments; it’s how he acts around other magicians and how he treats people in general off camera.

I have direct accounts of his behavior that pales to how he acted on Phenomenon. Ask crewmembers that worked on his show, ask magicians that quit or were fired as his advisors...

If you like him, fine; but do not attempt to force the universe to think likewise. If he inspires you to excel, well good for you and work from there.

That's all - I cannot validate wasting my valuable time on this guy. (I just lost 4 minutes of my life writing this).

Actually, my Step-Mom and Dad figured it out the first time they watched it. :roll:

I'm not an Angel fan, and I don't think he's a very nice person, or a skilled magician. However, his show is entertaining to watch, and that's what makes people like him.
