Yeah I thought russian roulette was an incredible piece of television, better than the séance believe it or not - that I was not too impressed with - don't critisize me for saying that though, please!

Unfortunately I don't have broadband, and I can't really leave the pc on for a few hours to watch the interview!

But I think that the hype will die down a little - for now at least - until Derren decides to put out a new series or another special...
----------------------------------
"I would say that nearly everybody that I have met who is significant in mentalism has nothing but the deepest respect and admiration for Mr. Brown. So where does all this talk of jealousy come from?"
----------------------------

In an attempt to answer this statement/quiery, think the idea of jealousy comes from the arguments that occurred on page 3 of this topic - shrink and craig vs. me and nathan etc whatever - they're over now and lets forget they ever happened.. I think that the idea of jealousy stemmed from shrink and craig having the belief there were too many DB topics on the Café and wanted to let people how they felt, etc, no offence to them - understandably there were [and still are] a lot of DB topics on the Café, which is why I created this one. Then they got annoyed at my attempt to clear up the Café...hmm seems strange doesn't it?

Anyway!

my 457 cents

-Francisco

ps. does ANYONE have any idea of new series' or specials? I heard somewhere that Derren was slowing down now, and is concentrating on his tours, and his own personal performances. any comments?

He is currently filiming his new series of Trick of the Mind, and, if all goes well, he has a new live show which will start touring next year.

Wow! Thanks for the quick responses guys!
If I'm right in thinking, Derren Brown will soon become more famous than me, if he's lucky.

So I suppose this thread will re-surface with the start of the new series or the special.

signing off until then

There are also plans for one more show after trick of the mind and the special. Material from several sources are currently being looked at.

I think the idea of a topic for fans of Derren Brown is ok.

And for anyone who dares to argue the fact that people want to copy Derren's material, well I'll just say this - Is everything you've ever done all entirely your own and 100% original? Unlikely.

From a beginner's point of view, you do have to copy to learn. Imitation + deviation = progression.

There‘s a difference between performing released published material and performing another performer’s material, especially if it’s material that they’re currently using in their act. Copying a performer's act without permission is not considered ethical in any category of show business.

The same distinction applies to trying to find out a current magicians's secrets, even if their secrets are published and generally known. Magicians usually respect the idea of maintaining the effectiveness of another performers show, even for other magicians. Sadly, that’s not always the case.

Check out the post, “How does Derren Brown do this?” by truthteller, who’s one of the leading performers today, which in my personal opinion is one of the more important posts in the Magic Café.
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.

I'm a Derren fan and think having a forum for Derren fans is wonderful, but can we have just one? and say something new, I'm just waiting for someone to ask about the tractor effect for the 100th time.


PsychoMagi, yup I've cracked, I'm just waiting for the nurse to take me back to my padded cell, some people see dead people, I see Derren. Smile
