criss angel MINDFREAK

I'm watching it right now. Amazing don't you think? but I am beginning to think that it is not really live. Some of the stuff is just too impossible. how can you possibly just dissapear standing on a table with a blanket over? I know for sure that it was staged when he split that lady in half on the park bench. He seems to know too many tricks.

BTW if you don't know what I am talking about, do a search on youtube and watch some videos.

Re: criss angel MINDFREAK

I agree that a lot of the audience-interaction tricks are obvious and poorly-acted (like the woman pulled in half on the park bench, or the arm through the chest routine), but Criss also has a lot of really, really good illusions as well ... like the hovering tricks, some of the disappearing tricks, etc. He has certainly earned his place in magic history.

Re: criss angel MINDFREAK

I like the way he looks and acts all dark and evil but talks with a lisp. Apparently his magic can't fix that.

Chris Angels stuff is completly setup and its not street magic at all. hes just a complete rip off of David Blane (not sure how he spells his last name) but David is awesome.

Sorry, but there are just some laws of physics you can't defy...

If so, this guy needs to publish and go collect his Nobel Prize ASAP...

The real trick is that even if we know it's impossible, you can't figure how the hell he does it, and the whole events are entertaining!

Re: criss angel MINDFREAK

well I will admit that his stuff is magic and all magic is just illusions

now saying you cant defy the laws of physics is absurd.

How many times have you read where a individual has overcome ridiculous odds to do something to save a person. Like lifting abscene amounts of weight.

There was a documented case where a person literally lifted a car off of someone and when asked afterwards about it, the person couldnt explain how they did it, and admitted it was unexplainable.

The human mind hides quite a bit of power we dont tap into. There is so much even in todays modern science the brain is capable of but its never used. I forget the exact percentage but the brain only operates at like 20% of its potential.

The key is finding how to unlock that, then all hell will break lose.

Until then I will go on record and say Criss Angel is the Devil \m/ \m/

That's true one time after many glasses of Jack Daniels I lifted a chick so heavy that when I woke up in the morning I couldn't explain how it happend.

Re: criss angel MINDFREAK

man, i can't wait to actually run into criss one day on the strip, since he is located here in vegas. it is true that all magic is an illusion. and there is a trick to it, but amusment is in wondering how the hell he pulled it off. it's exciting if you ask me.
