Maybe I'm way behind the times here, but has anyone else noticed the prevalence of "Magic Case," or "Close Up Magic Case" videos on YouTube? These consist of a young magicians (I haven't seen anyone out of their teens yet), opening his magic case and showing the viewer either what's new, or how he's arranged his tricks differently. Totally banal. Totally boring. Totally without substance. Yet, I keep watching them. Over and over again.

Worse yet, are a sub-set of obscure magic videos where kids are getting magic packages in the mail from on-line dealers, filming themselves dangerously opening them with inappropriate kitchen implements, and unpacking and slowly revealing each item inside. How numbingly boring is that? Yet again, I can't turn my eyes away. Like a bad car accident, I must keep watching.

And don't even get me started on the card collection videos. These are put to music most of the time, as the camera pans over dozens and dozens of painstakingly organized decks of cards, handily lined up in well-defined rows, and rows, and rows. Duplicates upon duplicates, opened and unopened, variations upon variations, obscure rarities, blah blah blah... ahhhhhhhhhhh. And I keep on watching.

Has anyone else noticed these new semi-trends? Or am I languishing in this madness alone. Help me... someone help me.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Quit watching.

- I have seen some of the things you're discussing, some are quite amusing. We were probably the same when we got our first packages of mail-order stuff.

Ha. I know. That's probably why I can't seem to quit. Memories...
