I think Blaine is great. He has brought magic to a lot of people who I think would otherwise be indifferent.

I like David Blaine and I enjoyed his street magic. At the time he was on TV I was not involved in magic and I thought it looked great.

I really don't care for big illusions, like Blaine being frozen in ice. Not that's there is anything wrong with illusions.

Oh yha I love them both... but a l;ot of people seem to hate D.B.

I don't hate David Blaine or Criss Angel. They both have set out to bring magic back to the forefront of entertainment, or should I say, they both have set out to bring magic to a new generation. Yes, that is what they are setting out to do, bring magic to a new generation, and I beleive they are doing it!

If it weren't for Criss Angel and David Blaine, I wouldn't be here! I saw a Blaine special on tv one night and I thought, "Cool, a magic show on tv again. I haven't seen one of those in years". It made me want to see another one. Then I caught Criss Angel's MindFreak, and I thought (and now know), "This is what I want to do, MAGIC!".

I beleive in the years to come, Blaine and Angel, will bring new audiences (whether it be stage or tv) and new performers to magic, and that is a really good thing. in fact, they are doing it now!

I respect both of these men for what they have done and will do for magic, its audiences, and for its performers.

You DON'T have to hate one in order to like the other (I beleive I stated that in an earlier reply to this post). To be totaly blunt, you can LIKE BOTH. But rather you like one and dislike the other, you still must respect both. If not, you are doing a discern for fans, magicians, and magic its self as an art.

I like Blaine's persona. I think that it is easy for laymen to relate to and therefore it opens the realm of magic to those who I think wouldn't realize it exists outide of merlin in movies. I like simple presentations. Too much other crap going on and it is not about the magic anymore and I get annoyed.

I agree about the differentiation between stunts and magic, but I admit that is purely selfish. I do stunts and I am tired of people accusing me of "faking it" because they saw Blaine or Angel, or any other known magician, do something similar or fake a stunt.

I think both are bloody brilliant business men, and I respect them a lot for that.
If, of all the truths in the world, you choose one and follow it blindly, it becomes a falsehood and you a fanatic.
