Blaine, but not forgotten

Blaine, but not forgotten

You can always rely on Crazy Beautiful to give you something to think about. Even if you don't necessarily agree with it.

I have to admit I feel a little the same way about David Blaine as I do about Britain's resident David Copperfield - Paul Daniels.
The guy is a fabulously talented and accomplished close-up magician, but the stunts are a bit cack really. They're just endurance - and I want miracles. Perhaps it's just the showbiz whore in me, but I can't help feeling that there's simply not the *craft* in the David Blaine stunts. David Copperfield disappearing a Lear Jet - whoo hoo. Even bloody Siegfried and Roy.

But any arse could learn to stand on a stick for that long. What was actually proved?

That it's possible to jump 80 ft with a catheter still in and survive?
