    Mind telling us how that particular trick is performed? Seems just like the Balducci, but you just rise a little higher.

    And yeah, I will give anyone like 500 bucks if they can tell me how Criss does that sick levitation. When he does it outside it might be fishy, but goddammit he did it inside a restaurant and a mall. Not to mention he does that levitiation ish on another person! I mean seriously, I would not be surprised in the least if this guy harnesses black magic or is in fact JC reincarnated. :o

    Maxwell and I bantered back and forth on this a bit. Do a Google on King's Rising and Balducci Effect and you'll see the difference and how to do both of them if you look in the right places. Angels' got a new tweak or two to these that he's made that I haven't fully figured out but they're the basis for some of his levitation bits. No matter how you slice it, though, the guy has some incredible skill and control.

    I literally looked in 8 diff. places and all of them just had a video that showed it, but never actually explained it. Plus if you want to learn it, you have to buy a video. :down

    Anyone still watch this? The one on right now is pretty cool so far. The quarter thing was interesting. I still wish it wasn't all built around one purely physical stunt. Ok, you blew yourself up and survived. I dont care. I wanna see the magic stuff.

    The wife and I quit watching it after awhile. When he had the H2 park on his chest, we started losing interest (that and we got ahold of a copy of Gauntlet: Dark Legacy for our PS2 :D ). He's still damn entertaining, though. He does do a lot of things that you either wonder how the hell he did it or you have to admire him for having big brass balls. The last one we saw was when he got the equivalent of a lightning strike off one of the largest Tesla coils in the world. Bzzzzzt! :D

    Hahaha! Whatever happened to Doug Henning, anyway? Never mind, I don't think I really want to know.

    More than that, he's the frickin Antichrist :( His trick where he changed a cup of coffee into a cup of coins freaked me out more than anything I've seen him do.

    As for Angel, I'll have to check him out, because I've never seen him.

    I just want to know how the hell can you throw a pack of cards from the inside of the bus and the one the girl wrote on some how ended up on the outside of the bus. Or how the hell can you set your self on fire fall down and appear in the crowd not even a second later or just pull a person in half.

    I'm particularly interested in learning the pulling a person in half trick. I think that would be a hoot at staff meetings.
