Did anyone watch Derren Brown last night on Channel 4? HE IS A FREAKING GENIUS! How the hell does he do that?! I sat there watching the whole programme with my mouth hanging wide open, he's just so amazing. But how does he do it?! I think he's actually the Devil reincarnate. But he's not evil enough (not as far as I know), so maybe he's just magic.......

I've rather misunderstood Burt and his bat sperm.

he is freakishly clever to distraction. Thats how half his tricks work, oh and by working out your mind set, and reading your body language.

However i didn't see the show your on about. Imagen what the world would be like, if talent like his was in the wrong hands.

Skip Life and come with me?

He is really good at whatever the hell he does. Clever trickery I would say.

It was two nights ago and I'm still thinking about it, he's captivating to watch. Once you've caught the beginging you have to watch the full thing. And he always goes that step further, you wont be expecting the next thing etc. He blows my mind, hah. xD

I liked the gorilla bit, I'm so amused at the simpleist things. (Perhaps not simple, actually.) But no one was expecting it !

We watched it here with a couple of friends and had a great time. In my opinion his trick or treat series is the single best series about perceptual manipulation around, hands down. (But while you're watching my hands, i'm braiding my hair with my tongue.)

How'd you think he did the flying table? An alternate magnet? I've seen it applied on a small scale but sheesh, this guy, you expect him to come out of left field and throw a curveball, but you don't expect him to bend spacetime in the process.

Even after watching intentfully, the majority of the magic in this show continues to elude me.

The basics of his techniques are applied on a daily basis in advertisements, television, religion and people management. Cohorts of Satan, to be brief. Making people buy into silly things they don't need.

I'm looking for a positive example. We shot all those people i believe...

The little card trick he did with Stephen was good but if you pay attention to it you can see what he's doing.
That said he's still very bloody clever.
He even made Stephen swear!
