David Blaine To Do Something Stupid
Hi, I'm a dork
Pseudo-magician David Blaine has another stunt planned for next week, involving him hanging on a hook 40 feet in the air while falling asleep for three days, or something like that. I guess Criss Angel is whipping his butt so bad right now, he's gotta do something.
I'll admit to really digging the card tricks early on, but David Blaine's career has since been reduced to him trying to get away with doing as little magic as possible.
Here are some of David Blaine's other "tricks", taken from an article that ran earlier today in Reuters:
Watch me prove I can't get out of this
- Spending 61 hours inside a block of ice
Buried in a coffin for one week
Living one week underwater in a clear sphere
Spending 44 days in a box in mid-air over the Thames River
If you think about other famous magicians, going back to Houdini and guys like that, they made a name for themselves by getting locked inside something and then getting out-- not by getting locked inside something and then just staying there. What kind of a magic trick is that?
"How's that magician guy doing?"
"Umm, he's still in the box."
"Okay, how's he doing now?"
"I think he's still in the box."
"Damn, does this guy suck, or what?!"
