I guess the street phenomenon has its place in the community, but I never saw it as a substantial foundation to modern magic at all. I've been on various forums and talked with a variety of people of different backgrounds, and the whole Blaine/Angel fad just never seemed to be a prominent figure in people's understanding of magic today. Perhaps I'm naive, but Swiss arguing that street magic isn't anything groundbreaking is like Joe Schmoe arguing that the sky is blue. The argument's a null point. Granted, the reading's very entertaining because everyone enjoys the occasional bashing, but I didn't see the point behind it. Am I overestimating the quality of magic's newcomers? Or do people actually think Brad Christian, David Blaine, and other hyped figures are the founding fathers of the art? Quite sad if that's the case... Ray. [/quote] I think they do. A lot of people pretend that this is a "new movment" or that magic has changed. One blog talked about how these kids are shaking magic to its core. And yes, people do talk about OZ and Nozebleeda like they are magic heros. I thought Swiss said what needed to be said. Especially when it comes to Ellusionist selling tricks that have only that one good looking moment but no real way to get into them and no real way to get out of it. If you cant do the trick then they shouldnt sell the trick. that's my humble opinion [/quote]
