The coin trick was awesome, thanks for posting that. Blaine is one of my favorite magicians. People that don't like him just don't understand his presentation or what he did for magic on tv and in popular opinion either.
I have to agree, David Blaine is actually good for magic, he keeps it simple and will avoid Stooges, Confederates and camera tricks when necessary. I know Blaine has used Camera tricks and his share of cut scenes but not even close to that Criss Angel guy (This guy is 95% into camera tricks
) David Blaine is probably more well known for his stunts than his magic and has done an excellent job, I really admire his will power. He is a strong person and A great magician as well.
