really fucking scary, but amazing.
No way am I mentally strong enough to even watch that bloke, let alone ever be one of his subjects.
If I rob a bank tomorrow I want you all to know that Derren Brown made me do it
i almost burst into tears when he caught up with the woman who did it. what could've been going through her mind? she's just done an armed robbery, twenty people are running at her from all directions shouting and derren brown's sticking a camera in her face!
he scares the hell out of me.
Although all of the suits stealing random things from that corner shop was pretty funny. That must've really fucked with those shop assistants heads
that the shop-owner wanted to see how good his staff were. i mean, they let a good fiver in stock get stolen before they said anything about it..
He never ceases to amaze me, my heart was racing so fast during the robberies.
i thought. Still not sure how much is actual psychological technique and how much is 'magic'.
None of it is magic.
Isn't that the point?
magic in the sense that there is a set up, a sleight of hand, and a stooge. I saw 'magicians' doing his guessing the bank card pin 'trick'.
i thought the zombie/video game was the weakest one he had done. I think he's good though, especially live.
inexplicable urge to PUNCH derren brown.
BECAUSE HE WOULD JUST USE JEDI MIND TRICKS ON YOU.
damn caps lock
but very impressive, so I guess the smugness is kind of allowed.
uhm, none of it is 'magic' or fake as far as I'm aware. he's not the first person to do a lot of what he does. My a level psychology teacher had the horn for him.
i would forget this tv show rubbish and become an evil supervillian, it would be the best thing ever, derren brown using his psychological skills for evil.
plus some other stuff i had read from the magic circle.
At this point i must also make it clear that i do like him.
that's a genuine behavioural technique, the rubbing of leg stuff i mean. It's a cognitive behavioral technique using biofeedback, apparently much favoured by sports stars.
if he can get people to give him money (although people contend that the 'suggestable' people are really just stupid)why doesn't he use his powers for good, he could try making suggestions to Mr Bush for example
came in just as they were doing the robbery. what did he do exactly?
