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."
(days later)
"Okay, how's he doing now?"
"I think he's still in the box."
"Damn, does this guy suck, or what?!"

Presenting David Blaine, the World's Most Boring Magician.

Ah, the "Celebrities are better than us and we should subordinate ourselves to them wherever possible" argument. I should've expected that.

I like this article its totally correct. He is a washout. He does the stupidest tricks, Most of which are mock ups of the amazing Criss Angels. Criss Angel defies death almost once a week. David Blaine does something probably once a year, and all he does is stay trapped in something, and then is let out. Im glad im a Criss Angel fan, and not a fan of the boring stupid David Blaine. David Blaine is also so bad i learned how to levitate by watching him, when i cant figure out Criss Angels. So David Blaine not only does boring things but does a poor job at them

I'm not a fan of magic or illusions for that matter not a fan of Blaine, but all that changed with this stunt. I went on Monday and Wednesday to get his autograph for family members and found him to friendly, unassuming. Medically he did risk his life regardless of breaks, perhaps all the negative people should educate themselves on the physiology of the stunt and more important that performers embellish do their endeavors. He could have pretended to be sick and not finish the stunt...Now I know he has something that most entertainers don't INTEGRITY! Now I'm a true fan and hope to see him again. Criss Angel is a mean homo if you like him then you are too.
