I dont see why so many of yall dislike David Blaine. Why? because he does simple tricks that you know? Or is it because he was smart enough to make millions off those tricks, while most of yall are still broke?I sit because hes famous and your not? Or is it really because yall all really like him, but are too scared to admit it because he does simlpe tricks? Just think about it.
Here are the reasons most people dont like Blaine.
1. Doesn't use alot of patter or have a character
2. Doesn't do effects with fancy sleight of hand
3. Uses camera tricks
The people who dislike him because of this are ignorant.
1. His lack of patter IS his character, if he came across as any old crappy magician who tells a story about two bank robbers trying to get away from the police during an acr effect he would NOT be popular. His spooky quietness and blank stares is what make people think something is wrong with him and makes him popular.
2. WHO CARES! This isn't a show for magicians. SIMPLE effects are the most effective.
3. Again this is a show for lay people NOT magicians. They can't tell the difference. If anything you guys should be happy! This protects the secrets so people cant rewind it and figure it out.
Sorry if my post is a bit mean but I am constantly amazed at the immaturity level of this forum.
