Lots of Magicians don't like David Blaine.But to my opinion,magic is not for magicians,It's for laymen's pleasure.You can do a ten packets Cybil cut but if the audience don't like it,you are still a bad magician.David Blaine is now famouse,that's enough.

My role models were all the hookers, pimps, dope dealers and hustlers who worked 42nd street, back in the day. Also the junkies, druggies and bums on the lower East side.

Having Anti Roll Models is also helpful.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I take the best character traits from people I meet, or read about (fictional or non). Sometimes it turns out to be a monster ... so ... Frankenstein thrown in with Batman, The Founding Fathers, and a splash of vermouth?

I try to model my life after various "I love Lucy" episodes...
One time, when I was young, I botched a sleight so bad, Vernon, Marlo & Miller rolled over in their graves. But I didn't see Elmsley, probably because he was behind the others.

If any of the people mentioned are "role models" it is only because they are unique, and that's what we should aspire to be.

Good point I guess it can be taken too far and often is.

Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

I think I'm pretty great. 4 years is a long time for me to wait to say that. I'm going to have to go through all the threads to make certain I haven't missed any others.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.
