I am sure by now that whether youre a fan or not of David Blaine that your tired of discussing his magic/shows. But since his new special is going to air soon, Id thought Id start another thread.
His latest stunt involves him standing on a ledge 100 feet high for 3 days with no protection under him. I think that requires more guts then most of us will ever dream of. Also, in requires you to be a little insane as well.
I didnt like his levitation trick, but to be honest with you, he only hurt himself by cheating. What does he say every time someone says to him can you do it again?
However, when David is performing these death-defying stunts, hes reminding everyone of one of the great performers of magic, the late Harry Houdini. I never saw Houdini perform live, but I am sure if you get the chance to watch David live in NYC, he is recapturing the feeling of what it was like to watch Houdini during the early part of the century. Granted there is a big difference between the two, but you have to give David credit for attempting to show the world a little sample of Houdinis style of magic.
