You mustve been a trouble maker Greg. What did the Professor say?


She wasn't too happy. This was a person that believed just about everything and this was in my early magic days when I was a bit of a rebel. I actually did some psychic stuff for her and said I was a magician and that got her madder. She insisted that if I didn't tell her how it was done then how could it be a magic trick. It was my first experience with someone who has blind faith.
The weird thing is that she was very analytical and scienctific about everything else in life, but when it came to the paranormal she just about believed anything that was put in front of her. Oh, well.

This thread reminds me of when Derren Brown put the needle through the guys hand. I have had a discussion with a person about the needle through arm effect. My responce was, "Why not do it for real?" I can see why you wouldn't do it for real if you performed the effect night after night but that is something I don't do. The effect was recommended to me and I've read great reviews but it is not an effect for me. If I showed my friends they would not be impressed because (if you knew me) that is something I would do if put on the spot.
I have 5 piercings, labret, 2 in the eyebrow, and 2 in the ear. Not the earlobe(tragus I was just told) and 1 right above that. All piercing I did myself with a 16 guage piercing needle. I have pierced my lip 2 more times for Halloween one year and took them out the next day. I don't think there was any day after pain.

I believe pain is all in your mind. If you get yourself in the right state of mind there is no pain in the piercing. There are other factors also. Pain is more tolerable (for me) if there are people around. Funny thing is that I am deathly afraid of needles. See if you can figure that one out. I could never let any person besides myself shove a needle through any part of me. I have faught with doctors and paramedics about giving me an i.v. or drawing blood.

Sorry for getting off topic. I would not recommend shoving a safty pin through your cheek but if you must do so I would say do it with a pre-steralized piercing needle. Pinch the area to be pierced as you push the needle through. The pinch will hurt more than the needle. It also helps if you lube the needle with antibaterial ointment first as it will aid in the removal. Hey that's just how I would do it.....

P.S. I pierced my cheel once and I have to say it hurt like hell!! Sorry I couldn't resist. LOL

Hmm you know what your absolutely right. I don't even know why I'm interested in this effect, it goes against the rules I usually follow. If it's some kind of effect where you are doing something dangerous it also has to have some kind of magical effect/stunt and/or go wrong. Like burning yourself and the spectators thought of number being burned onto your palm. I don't know about you guys but I LOVE when certain effects go wrong and I make sure they do.

Hmm well I don't really want to give away some things I'm planning for my future show, just in case some evil mentalists sneak over here and steal it (Just Kidding!). But heres an example I found somewhere else on the forum from another performer. During the standard razor blade effect, the performer makes a big deal that hes swallowing 10 blades, at the end when they are all strung together he counts them, there is only 9. He counts them again.... only 9. He then starts coughing up blood and staggers offstage.

I remember when I was younger and would watch dangerous stunts always wishing it would go wrong because they never did. I know I'm mean lol.

Your a sick man Nightbringer. I like it!! It is cool when the spectator thinks that something has gone wrong or they think the perfomer has screwed up. They let their guard down and that is when you can go in for the kill and blow them away.

I like that idea. Instead of staggering off stage, it would be nice to cough up some blood then swallow another piece of thread and and fish out the remaining razor blade. Which would come out nice and bloody. I think I am a sick man also. LOL.......
