Hi All,

I was at the launch in London last week for the LG Shine that David did. Sadly the trick to me in the audience, was really rather see-through... but it's come out quite well on this which LG have given me.

That's just his style. It drove me crazy, but......, I showed this clip to my family and they loved it. My wife didn't even pay much attention to the pacing. Somehow he manages to connect!

Not Really,

I like his style. It works for his intended audience.

I understand that for magicians (the mayority of whom I've talked to) who have a general concept of what is supposed to be entertaining, His style is not entertaining.

However, that is not the case for whom he is performing for. It's a different style with different impact of the "traditional".

Nice one junior ..... Please feel free to visit my web site and have a look at where I do my shows .......Or call one of my 5 agents and ask if I'm available to perform at your birthday party.... .... no style is not a style in my book .....Magic is not an introvert ... non performance art .... unfortunately many introvert types are attracted to magic as a hobby ..... It is a performance art ...
What about his presentation did you like .... Pacing back and forth, mumbling though a long and involved self working card trick that reminded me of one that my uncle used to perform for the family ......

It cracks me up how some people rip David Blaine (the Millionaire David Blaine) that has had many nationally syndicated t.v. shows and travels all over the world. He is a household name for crying out loud. Yet, somebody always thinks they are better.

Pacing: slow because he wants to make sure the audience members get the directions absolutely correct, or else he's sc**wed.


The nice idea here is that he's got all these packs floating out there, so everyone in the audience presumably is near someone, experiencing the magic that happens in their hands. It's a nice communal moment when everyone's card is revealed at the same time.

Yeah, to us it's a silly trick, but I think there's an important lesson in what he did--one on one, that trick is nothing--but he's multiplied the effect by many times the way he duplicated it through out the audience. Maybe that's an idea that can be used by more performers.

The presentation: yeah, pretty lame. But sometimes less is more. But he sure could have sold that telephone call a lot better. Acting 101 would be helpful.

But he gets the money. It might be worth analyzing why.
