TheRadio Times 4 -- 10 May 2002, columnist Jane Rackham, among other things said "Presented by Adam and Joe (although you'll soon be wishing that they vanish in a puff of smoke)" etc. After watching the show, I totally agree with her sentiments. These two idiotic 'clowns' -- and I use that term advisedly, and their amateurish and childish behaviour, were the cause of many people switching channels prematurely. I know this because I had asked several friends and neighbours to watch the show, and give me an unbiased opinion today. Fortunately a few sat through the excruciating shenanigans of these two 'WANKERS', whose air-time would have allowed the complete Richard Ross Linking Ring routine (And others) to have been shown; could have been called "60 Greatest Magic Tricks".
Jenny Sinclair #48 ....men, stay away from this psycho bitch. She takes a magic trick and makes it into some statement of sexism. Love the video, but god damn I cant even watch magic shows without seeing dumb shi*
Most of these tricks are ridiculous. I know how most of them were performed. The #1 for example, David has his lower body folded under the table. The reason you see nothing under the table is because there is some hi-tech invisibility cloths being used. Look for military stealth technology and you'll see that it exists. The levitation inside a box uses two sets of many thin wires that passes thru the edges of the glass cover. The floating light bulb uses a bulb with a battery inside it, and the guy has a piece of string with him tied to 2 wheels, one at the ceiling and the other inside his mouth, and somewhere in between there is a blob of wax attached to the wire, then he attaches it to the bulb when he wants to float it, this way he can swing the ring over it without catching the wire. The cards on the pool table is the most ridiculous, he shows 3 cards of the deck at the beggining, and the rest all are queen of hearts. The David Blaine levitation is the Balducci levitation performed for real, but they added camera cuts to make it look better on screen. The person switch from inside to the top of the arc uses a bag with a fake bottom and the arc has trap door on behind, then the girl is wearing 2 swim suits to quickly remove the top one before appearing. Well, anyway, I can keep talking, but that is enough. There were some great tricks though, like the indian rope. But one of the greatest was not presented, that is the fast clothes changing, were the woman changes clothes, I think 6 or 7 times in fractions of seconds. Also, not taking the credit out of the magicians, who, many of them are very talented, like David Copperfield, who performs fantastic tricks, David Blaine, who is also very creative, and that trick with the candles and the doves... that was fantastic
pause the roller coaster at about 1:10 - look at it close the first few times you see it and notice the large track clearance and black wheels - then the last clip where the thin paper coaster is being pulled at about 15 mps - if the thin paper coaster hit him it would stop and bounce off - notice there is no track clearance and no black wheels - it is blue all the way to the track - loads of blue thin paper on the side under the coaster - if it looks like he is not going to be ready - they just stop pulling the paper along the track - it will stop immediately
acknowledgment of how much we hate reality. We want the impossible. We want a trick, that's NOT a trick. It has to be impossible...but yet..possible (otherwise it just can't happen if its impossible lol), know what I mean? THAT'S the fun of magic. We know magicians don't have superpowers, yet its happening front of you. We humans in generalwish the impossible were just possible, that's all and magic accomplishes that impossible task, therefore making it possible. So, the impossible was possible.
But, when its a trick that has no physical explanation to us, nothing was covered or hidden THEN we want everyone to see it. We WANT no one to have a explanation and just to enjoy it. If you pick a card, then you automatically know that there's alot being hidden from you, you have no control over the deck, and therefore you shun it as a trick. But when someone comes along the scene and ask you to JUST think of a card THEN you feel it isn't a trick. We want to be amazed. Our skepticism only mean
We're always ready to show our friends a trick on YouTube if its good. If it doesn't meet the standards of a trick. When we think we know the secret or what it takes to do the trick, then automatically, we shunned away as geeky, lame, boring magic.
Here's a magic trick! Point both pointer fingers toward each other right in front of your face staring straight ahead without them touching. Move your fingers away from your face and towards it until it looks good. It's called 'ghost finger'!!!

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
