My friend Clare and I went down to see him – just because the whole thing is so bizarre. It does get a bit hypnotic, but we did periodically yell out “it’s not magic, idiot!!”. I attached two photos for you.
Clare’s not giving you, the photo viewer, or me, the photo taker, the finger. It’s a David Blaine directed obscene hand gesture.
Also – it’s quite ironic that he’s doing his “forty four days in a box
without food” accross the bridge from the Tower of London where they used to put people in little rooms without food for weeks. And it wasn’t magic then, either.
Enjoy the Blaine madness!
