Do you like magic?

Was anyone else blown away by Murray's trick last night on America's Got Talent?? I like magic shows anyways, but this one really shocked me! :) Sorry, but I don't know how to embed the youtube videos.

  • I do love magic, but I'm hard to impress, lol. My husband does magic as a hobby, and he is amazing!!! He can do everything that David Blaine, Chris Angel, or any other magician can do. Well, that doesn't include huge props, that is. He is REALLY good with cards. Seriously, when we first met and he showed me certain stuff I was scared at first. I thought he was psychic or something, lol! So, he kinda ruins it for me because I know how a lot of things are done. I can still appreciate if something is pulled off well, but I almost always know the trick behind it. :)

  • LovingSAHMommy: I envy you having a sweetie that likes to do those things!.. I know that magic is just illusion, but I do love to watch when it is pulled off good. This guy did it real good last night! :)

  • LovingSAHMommy: Can he do the levitation? Just wondering because of your comment including Blaine.

  • I like the illusion-type magic tricks that master magicians are able to pull off effortlessly and leave you gasping in wonderment.
    I do not like to watch anything dangerous or life-threatening, though, like what Chris Angel does...something seems too "dark" about it all to me.
    I guess I'm a happy magic watcher instead of a danger one....lol.

  • PrydferthMenyw: Don't worry. This one last night wasn't dangerous.

  • I don't like things I can't explain. So I wouldn't make a special trip to see a magic show.

  • No. Magic is built upon the fact that people are gullible and easily fooled. So...no.

  • charlotsomtimes: I know that feeling about people acting like that. A great uncle of mine that we didn't know at the time was related, was a magician and did a show in the town where I live. My parents took us, and some classmate of my brother's spent the whole show informing us about how he figured each trick was performed. Duh, I KNOW it's illusion, but why not let people enjoy watching it? It's neat and fun! I like the mystery and suspense of it!
