It is April. In celebration of this blogs one year existence, the whole month will be winner time. Only the coolest and best members of our elite circle of nerds will be featured.
Today: Dani DaOrtiz!
This fine fellow is a terribly entertaining card magician. I do not speak a lick of Spanish (or whatever language he speaks) yet I do enjoy his performance. It is fast paced, hard hitting, playful stuff.
Seriously, watch this:
Six really good minutes of card magic. It is not just the tricks, it is his personality. Sure as a magician you can see what is going on, but that makes me appreciate the structure of his routine even more. That Jazz like quality, that impromptu feel. I seriously urge you to look him up on YouTube, it is well worth the time and effort.
He is such a good performer and you can see and hear that he has a good time doing what he does. His joyful appearance is not fake but genuine. And this pretty much sums up his character. "Genuine"
I also love that he doesn't treat every effect (and there is a lot of them) like it is a miracle. He is modest, despite the fact that he is one of the coolest magicians out there.
Damn I need to grow me some hair.
I cannot praise that guy enough. It is because of magicians like him that I have not completely lost hope.
Dani DaOrtiz, you are the man. Kudos to you, I fucking like ya!
