Right now I am pretty busy at the "Kieler Woche" (Kiel Week) which is one whole week of "Oktoberfest"-like celebration in the very north of Germany. Today I encountered this magician (who did not tell me his name):
I cannot say that he sucked... but he was one of those Gospel Magicians. Each trick was joined by a whole tirade about not being a personal buddy with God. The message aside... I could not help that he was using magic to illustrate his points. He was abusing magic so to speak. Reminded me a bit about "regular" magicians who abuse comedy to enhance their magic.
Just a thought.
