David Blaine Rescheduled Tour Dates

I just saw on Facebook that David rescheduled the shows he missed.

The new dates are in late November and early December:

  • November 30 PITTSBURGH
  • December 1 CINCINNATI
  • December 3 CLEVELAND
  • December 4 INDIANAPOLIS

In a new twist, David writes that you can see him BEFORE THE SHOW performing magic in the lobby! Maybe this replaces the VIP room? UPDATE: VIP tickets are available for these dates! I am thinking of attending the Cincinnati show 🙂 UPDATE #2: I bought VIP tickets for the Cincinnati show!!! It’s in an historic Art Deco theater 🙂 I like that David/his team have been choosing cool, artsy, smaller theaters. I looked into going to his last show in Indianapolis but it appears to be SOLD OUT! The links on his page don’t go anywhere.

Buy tickets on davidblaine.com.

In other magic news, I saw the Criss Angel show at the Luxor in Vegas. I wrote a bunch of notes to write up a review for you, but the short version is it’s VERY LOUD! Like very, very loud! I liked heavy metal back in the day, but I don’t listen to it anymore so it got to be a bit much. I loved the video screens and how the video matched up with live elements. You’d see dust and debris swirling on the video screens (in a dystopian world), and then there’d be real debris swirling around the stage!

P.S. I moved to Vegas!!! So far, it’s loud and crazy!!! I haven’t even been back to The Strip since I moved here because my move has been so tortuous. Vegas is a fun place to drive around. The desert landscape is eerie, like Mars. Realllllllly good food 😉 The heat (100 degrees) hasn’t bothered me much. The constant plane, car, people noise has, though. I’m still getting my place put together (furniture hasn’t arrived yet). Looking for a good part-time job. My other part-time job is doing cartoon animations on fiverr (newagestudies).

Last David Blaine Live Show TONIGHT

IMG_2121

Magician David Blaine’s Live Tour is over TONIGHT! His last show is in Albuquerque (July 23, 2017) at the Kiva Theater.

He hasn’t rescheduled the 4 shows he missed due to a death in the family….I thought he would just tack on these shows to the end of the tour but he didn’t.

Leaving me wondering if I will possibly have enough money to go see him live AGAIN??? Depends on when he does the tour dates. Maybe he will add some more shows? I personally think David should do his live show in Vegas and then everyone could come see him there (cheap flights! awesome hotel rooms!).

Watch Criss Angel Raise the Dead

That is the title of one of Criss Angel’s latest BeLIEve TV show episodes: Raise the Dead! I wasn’t prepared and started watching this right before bedtime! Super disturbing! I couldn’t stop watching it, though, and replayed it three times. What magician Criss Angel does is get a cadaver that was donated to science (a dead body). Then he has an audience member lie down on a gurney next to it. He tells her that in order to bring life back to this dead body for just a moment (he has a doctor watching for signs of a heart beat and respiration/breathing), he needs to take a life FOR JUST A MOMENT. But he promises the girl that she will leave the show the same way she came in (like hopefully not possessed with this dead person’s spirit!). She agrees. I would really like to interview her about her experience. Fascinating, but scary!

Switching bodies is similar to what the ancient Egyptians were able to accomplish: putting a dead person’s soul into someone else’s body or the body of an animal. That’s why so many pharaohs had the head of a hawk or a dog, etc.

It makes me wonder what these magicians do in their secret magic societies! Like do they meet at midnight under a full moon and switch bodies or briefly become wolves?

There is something similar in metaphysics called a “walk-in.” This is when a high-level spiritual teacher, instead of dying, switches bodies with someone else. That way, the spiritual teacher doesn’t have to go through another 3 years of potty training and learning to walk and another 12 years of boring schooling. They just resume their life as an adult in someone else’s body. Supposedly, the other person agrees to this and they die. Yet people think they are still living because their body is still walking around – but it’s the other person! Freaky.

A less weird thing to compare it to is bedtime. Where do you go when you are sleeping? You leave your body all night. Some people call this “astral traveling.” At night, you are out of your body and having “dreams” or other experiences. Native shamans can do this willingly, as well as buddhas and Indian gurus.

So, back to the super creepy Raise the Dead episode! I don’t even know if I should tell you the gross thing that happens! I covered my eyes during parts of it. You’ll have to watch it for yourself. Criss has 2 nursing students take the pulse of the cadaver and the live person. For a few moments, the live person has no pulse. And the cadaver has one! Aaargh! Scary! However, this isn’t the same as bringing back the dead. Because I don’t think it was the dead guy back in his body. I think the woman’s soul/spirit was briefly transferred over to the dead body. Freaky!

If Criss can do this, he can create a Frankenstein monster.

Criss Angel Magic: Believe TV Show

Obviously, I am a huge David Blaine fan and I’m going to his show for my birthday! But I started watching Criss Angel’s latest TV Show called BeLIEve (it’s available on Amazon Fire stick). The name is based on Houdini famously telling his wife to contact him with a psychic medium after his death. He told her a secret word that only they knew. So, if the psychic really contacted him after death, she should listen for this word. The word was “Believe.” But, according to Houdini’s wife, she never found a psychic good enough to tell her this password! Which is weird because I firmly believe in psychics. In fact, that is why I like magic! Some of the magic tricks seemed based on psychic talents. Like the mentalism ones where someone guesses what number you picked or what card you picked.

I think some of the other magic tricks, like levitating and making things disappear/appear, are talents from past lives. Previously, these magicians lived in Atlantis, I think, and gained great psychic abilities. If you don’t know, when Atlantis drowned some of the “black magi” = “magi-cians” moved to Egypt and became super-powerful pharaohs. Thus, there is a correlation between Atlantis and ancient Egypt. No surprise that Criss performs his Vegas show at the Luxor = an Egyptian pyramid-shaped casino!

I hadn’t watched any of Criss Angel’s TV shows since his early MindFreak days. He has gotten A LOT BETTER at levitating! Back in the day, David Blaine did some levitating in his TV show. He sort of fell over in a heap on the ground ;( Criss did some levitating and he didn’t get very far off the ground, either. But now he can basically fly! Supposedly, if you learn to control and direct your energy, you can focus the energy below your feet to create a blast-off effect, like a rocket. It is weird and freaky, but I believe they are both really levitating!

I have read Diana Cooper’s books about Atlantis, and she describes beautiful floating temples. To enter, you’d have to levitate off the ground and fly through the front door! If you weren’t an advanced enough person, you’d be stuck on the ground and unable to enter the esteemed temple.

My favorite trick that I’ve seen Criss Angel do in his TV show is make a stuffed animal come to life. It is so cute!!! If I was magical like him, I’d do cute tricks like this every day <3.

My second favorite trick I’ve seen Criss do on TV is turning on a lightbulb using the electricity from a PERSON! Tell us how to do it, Criss, so we can stop burning coal to power our electric plants! This is similar to Tesla, who said we can get energy freely from the ground or from lightning strikes. There is electricity all around us, if you think about. We just need to know how to harness it and how to safely distribute it. When’s the last time you got zapped by static electricity? It hurt, didn’t it? It was pretty strong electricity! And there is electricity INSIDE OF US, in our hearts which beat from an electrical pulse.
