So, Criss Angel is creepy too.

Anyone who convinces people that he can do magic, is a magician. In my opinion, it’s just stupid when people say “u guyz r dumb, every1 nos dat magic iz fake.” Well obviously, magic is all illusion, the point of magic is to think of ways to make it look like you are doing something paranormal. Anyone that can do that, is a real magician.

Sorry….I got carried away.

Blaine is supposedly a magician.

Yes and MrMontpetit is absolutely right. Anyone that calls themselves – or can be called a magician – is a master of illusion. That’s the entire definition as we’ve always known it. If you mean, “Does David Blaine perform real magic?”... That’s a different story altogether. One that couldn’t be answered until it was somehow scientifically proven that “real magic” existed in the first place. And then it gets all semantic-y and technical because the meaning of the word “magic” would be called into play and questioned…

But yeah. Heh. He is a real magician.

Magic isn’t real. Its a flawed question.

No! He is not. They filmed him across the street from my (old) store years ago. He walked backward and there was a dog trainer to coach the dog off camera…. All camera tricks, editing and actors. Not real street magic.

A magician is basically defined as such: “someone who performs magic tricks to amuse an audience”

So yes, he is a magician.

It’s all about the Kansas City Shuffle, make them look left, while you go right.

Just for the record, all magic is is illusion, slight of hand, and misdirection.
