:) What are you asking me for?...I'm by far an expert on Blaine...I just state my personal opinions on the man!

But to answer your question, most all tricks are gimmicked in one form or another...either gimmicked...or sleighted, which in itself makes them gimmicked.

Here's a list of some of them

Coin Bite- gimmicked
Rising Card- gimmicked
Coin Vanish(Raven)- gimmicked
Invisible Deck(card named is only one turned over)- gimmicked
Amitious Card(card jumps to the top)- ungimmicked
Twisting Arm Illusion- ungimmicked
Healed and Sealed Soda- not really gimmicked, just preparation
Dragon Thread(broken and restored thread)- ungimmicked

while many of blaine's effects are gimmicked, some aren't and he is actually a pretty good card handler. 2 card monte isn't gimmicked. neither is ambitious card.

I agree with you. Have you seen him do Instant Replay from the AoA books? It is amazing. I do not have the book which contains Instant Replay but I have heard it is one of the most difficlut things there is. I also think Blaine's DL is very smooth looking.

All I ever hear is "Blaine Sucks" and "I saw Blaine do that" from beginner magicians while half of these people can't even perform a DL. I don't think David gets credit for his skill at sleight of hand.

Does anyone know if there will be a part of his new special where he will perform street magic? He did that on Vertigo with Healed and Sealed, etc.


Sorry if this has been asked already.
Today was gonna be the day but they'll never throw it back to you

Has anyone noticed that Jamberry is trying to hide something? I also think that David Blaine is a decent magician because of the fact that he is able to sell himself to the audience.

The only thing is, is that some people aren't buying what he's selling. :lol:

Is ambituous card that card trick that he does in his DVD where you look at a card as he riffles through the deck and he flick anopther card it switches (or something like that)?

By the way if someone could let me know if Blaine has more than one DVD out that would be greatly appreciated!!!

No, the ambitious card is where a card is put in the middle of the deck and repeatedly jumps to the top. The trick you described is a mental force followed by a snap change.
