A short-and-sweet post to get you thinking: A blogger known as “The Allengator” writes that TV magic specials are on the decline because the music is awful:
You know what I mean, you hear some sort of ambient, house-type arrangement that is supposed to sound like some sort of mystical presentation, and none of them have ever sounded much good. I remember one special on years ago, it might have been David Copperfield, and they were “reuniting” a “lost” “son” and “father”, and the music sounded like it came from a bunch of partially drunk glass bottles of Pepsi Cola.
He also speculates that David Blaine’s emphasis on stunts is souring public opinion to magic.
Why am I posting this? To get you riled up and to flame him? Not at all; he makes some good points. So put your keyboard of fire down, flameboy. Besides, you have to admit that “partially drunk glass bottles of Pepsi” is pretty funny.
I’m just wondering: What are YOU doing to prove him wrong?
