I love you beyond words!" on Saturday as Kanye prepared to party with his NYC pals.

The Amazing World Of The Real Burt Wonderstones - Incredible Close Up Magic


Steve Carell Steve Buscemi Jim Carrey Dynamo David Blaine Criss Angel Paul Daniels Penn & Teller Matthew Wright

Magic tricks are a touchy subject among most grown adults nowadays, with it being literally one of those things where you either love it or you absolutely despise it. But there have been a few street magicians who've really transferred it into youth culture; the likes of West Yorkshire's Steven Frayne, more commonly known as Dynamo, being one obvious example as well as A&E Network star Criss Angel who's known for his cool, rocker style and his superhuman mind-reading skills. 

We also thought, what with the release of Steve Carell's new comedy 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone', also starring Steve Buscemi and Jim Carrey, it might be a good idea to put together our favourite close-up magic tricks to whet your appetite for its UK cinematic release, ranging from the old classics to the hip street stuff that has quickly risen in popularity. Of course, these ten magic mavens put Wonderstone to shame with some of the sleekest sleight-of-hand tricks on record.

Electrifying! David Blaine Completes One Million Volts Stunt In New York


David Blaine

David Blaine’s latest magic trick One Million Volts is complete, after he spent three days acting as a conductor in a powerful electrical current storm, reports The Daily Mail.

The 39-year-old endurance artist, famous for his long-lasting feats, emerged relatively unscathed last night, after having volts conducted around his body for 72 hours. We say unscathed, he didn’t exactly look to be in full health as he stepped down from his electrical chamber, but considering the magnitude of the stunt, it’s safe to say he’s fine. Before the electric escapade, Blaine said: “Seventy-two hours or more in an electromagnetic field can do... anything to the brain. There are a lot of unknowns here. I don't know how I could ever top this. This is an overly-ambitious idea, and I'm literally shocked that it came together.' Perhaps he wasn’t ‘literally’ shocked then, but he certainly was when he stepped into that chainmail suit.

Blaine, of course, is famous for the dangerous nature of his stunts, but after recently becoming a father, he’s had to refocus, and look upon his tricks in a different light. 'Becoming a dad, of course, it changes you now have a purpose in life,' Blaine told the Mail while preparing for the stunt. “I think differently about what I’m doing,” he added. He still did it, though, didn’t he?


David Blaine Completes 72 Hour Endurance Stunt


David Blaine

Glorified stuntman David Blaine has finished his latest bout of standing around until the point of exhaustion and starvation. The man who once decided to hang out in a transparent box held above the River Thames in London to prove .. something... has just come out of 72 hours standing on a 20ft-high platform surrounded by an artificial lightning storm that crackled between million-volt Tesla coils. So that he wouldn't come into contact with the electricity, Blaine wore a 20lb chain-mail suit, which meant he could do pretty cool looking things like shooting arcs of lightning out of his hands in unison to music that was playing in the background.

Blaine, who put on the stunt after thinking up an image of him standing at the centre of a giant plasma globe in New York City - we've all been there - was fed water through a tube so that he didn't suffer from dehydration, and relieved himself through a catheter. By not eating it meant he wouldn't have to defecate, which meant that 'all' he had to do was stand about and stay awake for three days.

Talking to his fans, Blaine commented "This is my last endurance stunt that I'm ever going to do. But I look forward to everything. Love you." Unable to walk on his own when being freed from the chain mail, he was wheeled to an ambulance to get his health checked. "I feel like taking a nice long nap, after my shower," he said to reporters. How long, David? We sense another stunt idea coming on.
