David Copperfield is doing interviews in support of a series of shows in Canada. Well, kind of: The Saskatoon StarPhoenix reported that newspapers were allowed to e-mail six questions to him. The Winnipeg Sun suggested that it was because Copperfield was tired of bad press.

The answers to the questions are entertaining, however. Among them: He misses his Lamb Chop puppet, he couldn’t take Houdini in arm wrestling, explains why he didn’t make the deficit disappear, will investigate making the Winnipeg Jets reappear and loved — loved — Pixar’s “Ratatouille.”

The last time I cried in a theatre was watching the animated Pixar film Ratatouille. Not because it was sad or emotional but because its level of excellence took my breath away and reduced me to tears. Sounds corny but it really happened.

The StarPhoenix also listed some of the effects Copperfield will perform for his show, “An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion,” including Man vs. Steel, Squeezebox, The Lottery, Killer and Thirteen.

Those are all incredible effects. But this is his best:


  1. HoHo Magic!!!

  2. ha ha the clip was amazing, I’m actually going to see Copperfield’s show tomorrow, so I’m STOKED!!!

  3. For those hviang trouble getting this working: You can use this in any browser. Simply right-click the link that says bookmark this link and a menu will pop up. Choose the option for saving as a bookmark or favorite, and give the bookmark a name you’ll remember. Now visit someone’s Facebook profile, and while you have that page up, go to your bookmarks menu or folder and click the bookmark you created.For more advanced users: As the count pointed out, you can access info from other apps by replacing photos in the source code with other strings.For those not seeing content: Keep in mind this will only show you content you have permission to access. If you can already click someone’s photos tab and don’t see anything, this trick won’t expose any new photos. If you don’t see any content load for an app, the user doesn’t have any content whose privacy settings make it visible to you. If you only see one page of albums, those are the only albums you can access for that user. This trick does not override access controls it overrides the default visibility controls. And don’t bother asking for a trick to override permissions on photo albums, as I wouldn’t post such code publicly.
