I have recently developed an interest for magic, mentalism and psychological trickery - thanks to Derren Brown who first blew my mind on TV a few years ago.
Last Friday I saw the master himself live in Edinburgh (yes, it was my main reason for the trip, but I also got to see a beautiful city and briefly visit my friend Paul in Django Films to see what magic they were up to).
Anyway; Derren Brown was absolutely fantastic as expected. And having a bit of interest in the field myself and knowing some of the principles and techniques from reading about it online and in books, I wasn't even close to having a f***ing clue about how he did most of what he did on that stage. If he wasn't scary before, he definately is turning quite scary now.
So in other words; it was an incredible show - and count me in on his next tour.
If you haven't heard about Derren Brown (shame on you), read more about him here, check out his website, search for him on YouTube, then buy his DVDs. You'll be hooked.
