Cardone,
Who's Britany Spears? Is she related to Britney?
Can you mention some of the awards that you're talking about?

Hopefully, you guys are not trying to disregard the honor of receiving such a prestegious award like Magician of the Year with those comments.

You're missing the point, Pete. It's wrong for Angel to use a hired performer for an illusion ... even if every other magician who has ever performed a levitation has done so with a performer. And it's wrong for someone to "act" like a member of the audience, even though that's been done for as long as there have been magicians and audiences. You're going to have to check your inside knowledge at the door, because clearly the only way to actually know how the illusion was done is to watch it on television. I also think that anyone who actually worked on the show, particularly those who helped develop the illusions being discussed, should keep quiet, because it's the folks with the TV remote controls who know how they were REALLY done. Perhaps Angel should stop by this thread. I'm sure he was stumped by the illusion (because, after all, he's such a hack, as are all the magicians who worked with him on the show), and would love to know how he did it.

I LOOOOOVE the stooge he used for the mindfreak levitation episode. SHE IS A GREAT ACTRESS.....

He...

Did any one notice for some odd reason the girl in his website in the "NYC timesquare levitation" looks EXACTLY like the girl he levitated on downtown vegas?
I wonder why.....*sarcasm*Boy there must be a lot of strangers who have identical twins now in days*sarcasm*

"I will levitate a COMPLE STRANGER off the street"-Criss

"If you were there you would see him levitate a stranger"(might be a little misquoted)....-Editor Genii.

Yeah right.....

Whatever.

Yet people expect me to hang to every word Genii magazine says about angel being a great magician.

Criss is influential but that's it. He isn't great.

Again whatever.

When Harry Anderson did his hello sucker special he did a neele thru the arm. you can not reproduce it because it was edited for T.V. his comments were I use the tools available to produce the best results. Chris Angel is doing nothing less.

Did you see the car episode on tonights show? It basically ran him down. WOW, that was great. And no damage. But how?

Also like the coin transposition. He did that well.

Still the tuff one for me is the garbage can. He basically put a garbage container on top of himself as others hold it down. He talks on a walkie talkie and then when he gives the word, the container is lifted and he is gone. He is then found on top of a roof of an adjacent building! Very cool. This is the second time I seen it. The first time was when he was in New York. This one was in Vegas. I do know that in NY they have hidden street access to building, but in Vegas, I do not think that they have that there!

Criss is starting to grow on me. I really like his stuff. Some of it's gross, but a lot of it is quite unbelieveable.

I thought tonight was the best episode yet. The reason for this was simple straight forward magic,good solid magic, and funny with the amazing johnathan in the episode. What I really like about Chris is that he is bringing awareness to the public about other magicians that are really only famouse in our circle not to the public, Banacheck, Dexter, Amazing Johnathan(even though he has a great show in vegas not to many people know who he is) And the great Thomsini...This is great from the stand point that a lot of people who are great in our business are getting some reconition. Congrads to all that is involved and hope that the magic keeps on coming and the lay people catch on to our art again.

There was an ad for it on last night's show. $24.95. I believe it can be ordered through A&E's website.

I enjoyed his levitations so much, I though I would share it with the world. Don't try and think it means anything beyond that.

Your avator is kinda scary looking. What's up with those eyes. What are you suppose to be? Some halloween freak? Some show their faces in an avatar unaltered. What's up with yours?

About my avatar:
My character is that of someone who brings light to the shadows. I demonstrate that anything is possible because borders and boundaries are only in our mind.
The darkness around me signifies the shadows of doubt and insecurities that control our world. The light from my eyes signify the hope that I bring to the world. It does look scary, because everyone's afraid of the unknown.
By the way, those are strong forcefields in my eyes. I wear sunglasses.

Any Questions?




What is your character?

My character? Why, Duck Dodgers in the Twenty-fourth-and-a-half Century, of course! That's my story and I'm sticking to it, Space Cadets!!

Sorry, I just couldn't resist, as I am doing a panel on Buck Rogers at WindyCon in Chicago on November 12. See http://www.windycon.org for details. Sneaky plug!!

Wow I agree Chris is the greatest Magician of our time but I saw a TV program on PBS about early filmmaking and there was a guy who was way better than Chris.

In this black and white silent film this guy was standing by a small stool and a girl just appeared from nowhere standing on this stool, with no cover. I mean in one frame she was not there and in the next frame poof there she was. Wow how amazing and entertaining. I can not believe that he was doing the same amazing magic back when film was silent as Chris and Blane still use today.

Someone needs to find out who this guy was and give him the GREATEST MAGICIAN OF ALL TIME award.

George Melies(spl) was probably the filmmaker; what you saw was an edit; I hope that this post was a joke!

FWIW

Just like the TV specials we are seeing these days.
