Right now David Blaine
“It’s a disgrace,” one woman kept saying. “What sort of example is he setting to people with anorexia and bulimia? Young girls will take one look at him and say, ‘If he can stop eating so can I’. He’s just encouraging teenagers to starve themselves to death.”
Yet one of his toughest challenges will be to readjust to living in the real world. When he emerges from his plastic prison after 44 days – if he can survive this marathon fast – David will not have spoken with, or even touched, another human being for more than six weeks. Suddenly he will be surrounded by the full blaze of media attention. Every celebrity in Europe will want to be photographed with him.
And of course there will be the reunion with his girlfriend Manon von Gerkan, who has been sending him silent messages of love.
I predict he will take many months to recover, for the worst days of his fast lie ahead of him still. But somewhere in the future, he will be aiming to pull off an even more spectacular performance.
And I suspect that, as he reclines in his box and watches the people and boats flitting about below, he has already begun to make plans.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
