t'other night in Liverpool
Would be interested to compare tales if anyone else went to a different show...?
was on the seance show.
I've watched a lot of his stuff in the past few weeks and I think he's great at what he does
much better they look like this:
but I soon forgave him.
Extremely clever man: certainly.
I like him. He does all his clever shit without being the spritual type.
what he uses is showmanship and NLP which I'm starting to become very interested in
he would be invaluble
you couldn't trust him!
how he does what he does?
its not that much different from what any hypnotist does, he just has a certain way of presenting himself.
are you less impressed when you see his stuff now
I watch it in a completely different way then what you would do.
I still find it impressive though.
but not the kind you can read about in the books
is more mysterious than Derren.
The bear doesn't even need to speak and you are mesmerised!
Apt. Very apt.
It was on Channel 4 last year actually, the one where he walks across glass and does that 'trick' with the newspaper in a briefcase. Amazing.
a lot of the tricks where he says hes using mind tricks and things hes simply using basic magic like any other magician, but under a pretense of mental powers of persuasion.
He also claims to be banned from casinos n stuff when he actually isnt banned from any, which kinda suggests his abilities arent really that great. Basically its all an illusion.
