Been trying to watch some Criss Angel on TV. It's easy to take pot shots at something you don't like. It's more interesting to look at some other factors like what makes this guy so popular. He obviously has a large following and works his ass off to perpetuate his brand. So what is it? Do his fans actually accept that what they are seeing is real? Or is it with a wink and a grin and hey it's a TV show? I'm a big fan of Success. Criss Angel is a successful working magician in a tough and often heartless industry. He's climbed the ladder and now laughing his ass off to all of us who might call him a chump. He ain't no chump, he's a magician that works more than most of us combined. Good for him.
