Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

If all goes according to plan tonight, magician and escape artist Criss Angel will slip out of handcuffs, scamper to the roof of the Spyglass Resort and be whisked away by helicopter before the nine-story structure implodes.

Theyre going to shoot out the heart of the building and then bring down the sides so that they fold on top of each like a deck of cards. The explosive company has taken great pains to make the televised stunt "aesthetically attractive" for Angel's A&E cable TV series.

Headline in this mornings Tampa paper quotes Criss Angel as saying,
"he chose Clearwater because no other city in the country would allow him to perform the dangerous stunt."

Of course, being the cynic that I am, maybe it's possible that this is the only location in the country that is imploding a hotel.

It's still being billed as something no one else has ever done.
I guess if you say it often enough, maybe someone will believe it.
