rom The Independent online:
Being a magician has its advantages, such as when David Copperfield made his wallet and mobile phone vanish into thin air after he and two female assistants were confronted by real-life armed robbers in Florida...He turned out his pockets, apparently empty - but in fact containing his wallet, passport and mobile phone. "Call it reverse pickpocketing," he told the Palm Beach Post.
I mean how cool is that? For me, just seeing David Copperfield's name in the news was surprise enough. Since i was a kid, he has always been my favorite magician. I'd be glued to the TV set whenever he had a special on. His deep-set, haunting eyes and intense voice were riveting, not to mention the amazing tricks he did. At one point, i actually wanted to become a magician. I used to check out magic books from the library and study them and attempt to perform the tricks.
But after a while, his popularity waned. Or maybe just the public's interest in 'magic' had worn off...until David Blaine came along.
but forget Blaine. I mean its nice to see a famous Puerto Rican* magician but he'll never be as cool as Copperfield.
*My man wanted me to say that David is Black instead of Puerto Rican but i was like "whatever..get your own blog"
