Wow!!!

I was very impressed (finally) with the Magic shown on Talent tonight! Very good stuff all the way around and the judges seemed to really enjoy everything they saw. Was also nice to see Will (featured in Magic a month or two back) doing a nice presentation of Origami.

Good stuff...

I will agree with that one. I was surprised at all the magic acts on there, and they finally 'painted' a good picture of the art. Even the young guy from Florida with the string out of the stomach. They had plenty opportunity to 'get him' but they really made it look good.

And Will! Wow!! I have seen many presentations of Origami, but for him to fit that into 90 seconds was awesome! Good job! Can't wait to see what happens this year with the magic realm on this show.

I was surprised to see Murray on there, but once again, nice job!

I held my breath all night for fear they'd buzz one of the guys before they'd finished. Loved the looks on the judges' faces during origami; and, yes, at the beginning of Will's act, I immediately thought, "How's he gonna get this done in 90 seconds?"
What made it doubly impressive was that, not only did he get it set up, performed and finished with a flourish, it seemed energetic, not rushed!

Will,

I thought your act looked great. I like what you did with my Origami, both aesthetically and performance wise. I'm glad I found someone who could use it. Good Luck in Vegas!

Awesome night for magic. Clean fun presentations all the way around.

That guy did fall off the stage which was scary then funny. I felt bad for him that the judges weren't paying attention enough to get the magic.

The performance was excellent, very very good.

Shame about the patter... that made me cringe. But that's because I'm not an American and feel no reason to give standing ovations just because someone fights in a war.

Are you from one of those countries that feels a reason to give standing ovations just because someone has played in a soccer/football game then?

Eshla, your posts seem to make everyone else here cringe. If it weren't for American Soldiers (whom you refer to as "mercinaries" in other threads) you would most likely be speaking German. American's choose to honor those that serve their country, be it in the military, fire service, police force, ect. That is OUR culture. I feel that your continuous bashing of OUR military shows your prejudice of other cultures. You are exactly what you despise.

Eshla is probably just from one of those countries that has benefited from US Soldiers and can't muster enough respect to say thanks.

I find it somewhat telling that you must refer to a war that happened over 60 years ago in order to find a time when the American army did something good for the world. And even at the time there was a large percentage of American's on the right wing who wanted to join in on the German side.

By the way, I describe you as a mercinary because to the best of my knowledge a mercinary is a person who fights (generally in war) for money. That also seems to be the definition of a soldier, and the fact that the employers of the soldier are a government make it of little differance. Its not as if the American government actually choose good wars to fight, its not as if they do it selflessly and fight wars for the good of all mankind.

I am from a country that has been hurt by the US military (atleast in my lifetime). We sadly joined them in various wars, and lost billions of pounds and hundreds of lives over the matter. For this I can only blaim bad politics, and ofcourse our military.

Understand that it is not just the US military I dislike, it is all violent forces that assemble to fight something for the wrong reasons. So this would include our army too. Sadly I also have the belief (and I know that I am in the minority here) that if a person agrees to fight for that unjust force, in return for payment, then they themselves are morally damaged by the crimes of the military as a whole. In the same way the assassin is guilty of unjust killings he is paid to do. And you cannot defend assassins by saying that 60 years ago, one of them tried to kill Hitler. (which I would actually respect)

I do not give standing ovations easily. I don't understand people who do. When I met the prime minister I did not stand, because I did not have respect for him and he had not impressed me in his job. (hence low approval ratings)



Performance wise playing off your military slant is a good idea, as in America they seem to love that. But it is not something I could do and feel comfortable with. I'd never know if they loved me for my magic or my uniform - like not knowing if she loves you for your money or your personality.

I'm strange like that. But I cannot, and do not wish to, deny the fact that your performance was incredibly good and entertaining.

You're right, you could never play off a military slant, because you have none and even worse have no respect.

I pray one day you never have to grovel at a dictators feet or even worse be slaughtered by an out of control and evil empire.

Kevin

P.S. Again you cannot even muster enough respect to say thanks for what was done for you 60 years ago. Using your phrase....how telling.

If a childs father is a murder, do we judge and punish the child?

If a childs father is a generous and loving man, should we reward the child?

If a military had previous history of goodness on occation, should we endorce all future military endevors?

Or should we judge people by their actions and by their deeds at present?
