What are your favourite David Blaine tricks? I think it is Fly Ressurection. You can ressurecting a dead fly...

I really like when David Blaine did his Card Through Window effect. Those effects to me are really cool looking and I like them a lot.

Same here. Some of the effects I really remember blowing my mind were:

-Two Card Monte

-Ambitious Card

-STS

-Card Through Window

-Levitation

I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones that I remember watching over and over, just stunned. This, of course, was back when I wasn't into magic.

That's my favourite one but the ones that stunned ME was probably his Ambitious Card routine he did for that Fruit Loops guy :P and the levitation.

My favorites would be the bringing the dead fly back to life, and having someone think of a number, and then seeing the rooms in a building lit up only in the shape of their number (which was four). Those were some very cool tricks I think.

ITs not my favorite... Its a very old trick. I have performed it a few times.
MY favorite that I have seen of his- because of reactions: Chicken head ripped off and two card monte.

The one that amazed me before I got back into all this was the card effect he did with the mom and little girl in the cafe, where the card ended up in the girl's back pocket. Oh and the card stab in the restaurant was pretty cool too.

Does he do sponge balls? If so, that would be my favorite routine. Otherwise, I really like the one where he goes up to those two guys in the alley and makes the one guys shirt appear on him, and eventually winds up on a video tape made ten years earlier......

That is such a cool Blaine trick.

Yeah, he did do sponge balls for some kids in Haiti. They kept trying to run away cuz they thought it was black magic. That's when Blaine breaks all the [edited] away and explains to them that all magic is is entertainment.

I was really hit hard by his coffee to coins trick, and ashes on arm. Those are the ones I told all of my friends about (before I got into magic). I've always liked the card stab one in the restaurant, I'm still trying to figure out how that's even done :P

When I made my first magic purchase, I was watching clips of Blaine and stuff. That's when I decided to buy the coin bite and healed and sealed, what dust magnets :(
