Topic: Recognition And Why?
Message: Posted by: BigDC (Nov 25, 2013 09:39PM)
I have been watching Chris Angel's new tv specials each week called, "Believe" and I have watched David Blaine's latest rv special called, "Real Or Magic". Ok, Ok, I am not a very smart man, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out and understand that a LOT of what CA does can ONLY be done on tv or by video through EDITING and using stooges, while on the other hand DB a lot of his could ACTUALY be performed LIVE in front of a group of real random spectators.

With all of the editing and stooges that Chris Angel does, along with how much he ACTUALLY is insulting the intellegence of the people watching, how has ever been recognized by some of the most pretigious magical orgabnizations in the world for his work in magic, also please explain why David Blaine is not being recognized by some of these very same prestigious organizations, please explain because I just don't get it?

Also, is there any other magicians that have any specials on tv right now or any coming up in the future and if sdo, who and when and what channel/network?

Yeah Criss needs to remember that the size of the spectacle is not the only thing in wonder but also the degree of conviction.

Criss's new Spike stuff I have not seen yet. It is all stored online I believe so I will check it out. Has anybody seen that new serious which played around Halloween of this year.

Any favorite pieces?

How were the ratings?

Oh, sorry for all of the misspellings in the above topic, I was actually typing in a very dark room and a lot of the letters on the keyboard are almost rubbed off, plus I only type one finger at a time so I have a tendency to misspell things rather badly.
