    Re: Magician Vows to Complete Aquarium Stunt

    I watched some of it, I felt bad for Stuart Scott. He's gone from doing Sportscenter to covering a guy in an aquarium.

    Re: Magician Vows to Complete Aquarium Stunt

    There's two ways to look at this whole thing:

    1) He's an idiot. Why bother? Why the attention-seeking maximum-publicity?

    or 2) It's impressive that he keeps coming back for more punishment in a variety of entertaining and differing ways.

    In the end, I feel a mixture of both 1 and 2. Sure he's a walking hype-machine but we don't have to watch him. I didn't have to go to City Hall in London to see him in a box, and why begrudge him the money if sponsors are willing to pay to be associated with him? And why slander him if he can make more money from doing these stunts than he can doing street magic? If the estimates are true then surely we can say "well done" to Blaine for finding a way to make a mint and gain publicity for magicians or "endurance performers" while he's at it.

    You people can call him lame all you want ... but he is the one laughing all the way to the bank ... David Blaine earned more than 20 million dollars in 2004 and is estimated to have made nearly 50 million in 2005 ... somebody cares and someone is paying a lot of money to see what he does and what he will do next.
    I personally do not love his "ednurance" feats ... but his magic shows and street stuff is pretty f'ing freaky.
    I REALLY need to meet these SUCKERS that are giving away FREE MONEY to idiots like Blaine!!!

    Blaine just managed to find a way to do something he really enjoys and is damn good at it, but also make a crap ton of money doing it.

    Now if only i can come up with cheap illusions, perhaps I can do the same.

    On second thought, Treasure island..here i come

    Re: Magician Vows to Complete Aquarium Stunt

    I give him all the credit in the world.. This guy is just trying to do something that no other human being has been able to do so he can stand out from the rest. He is a unique person, you can't fault him for that.. As I write this, he didn't complete the stunt last night but I think he will do it eventually...
