David Blaine – Weirdo

You know, over here, we’re a lot less tolerant than you guys. I remember last year when he was doing that whole living in a box thing, the people of London took to throwing eggs at him. Oh how I laughed.

He is just sooo effing weird. I can’t work out if it’s just him being theatrical, or if he genuinely has a screw loose.

If he’d have attempted the underwater thing over here, somebody would have tried to push the tank over. It’s just as well he decided to stay in America this time.

Apparently he got paid $9m for this attempt. Who the fuck thought it was a great idea to pay him to do this?

Don’t they know there’s millions of starving children all over the world?

As Eve so eloquently put it, what an effing tool.

    I think he’s a bit weird myself. I’ve never understood his appeal.

    Stupid idiot.

    9 million? OMG. He should’ve at least passed out, stopped breathing, been shocked and then trached for 9 mil.

    He’s a wack job. Look at his eyes. I think I know where that 9mil will go…to the drug habit.

    I wish I was in the crowd throwing eggs. Brings back memories of my college days…

    I wish the people in NY did what the Brits did to him last year. That was hilarious. I can’t believe he has such a huge following. There’s a phenomenon in this country of people just famous for being famous, ie Paris Hilton and her crew. Some of them are like cockroaches and will never go away, let’s just hope he does.

    He completely freaks me out with his odd little magic tricks and wacko stunts.

    We are reasonable people here…since we all think he’s a looney…who is paying him that kind of money. Better yet, who cares about this sort of crap?

    Oh, I quite like him. I think he’s fun, and it seems that he’s quite up for interesting challenges.

    Granted, he takes himself a tad too seriously, but I consider what he does an extreme sport, which fascinates me.

    Obviously money is a motivator here but there’s a screw loose somewhere. I’m fascinated like Maili in a different sort of way: like why do it at all? Just like those folks who always try to be someone’s record for eating the most hamburgers or something. There are better things to do with time and better things to do with the money, too, like give it to the Katrina Victims without homes. Gah. I hate these types of sports.

    Who paid him?!? What a crock of bull-caca…hey, think he would go for that instead of water to float in next time?

    I vote nut-job!

    They were reporting here that he was paid $250,000 (still way too much for this freak) and that the 9 million figure had to do with how much ABC got out of the deal to show it.

    Na na na.
    I like him. I think he’s neat. I like that he does what he wants to – that he’s driven. If it’s stupid – so what? He’s not hurting anyone.
    He doesn’t make money selling arms to China, or oil, or junk food to kids. He’s got sexy eyes. He looks like he needs a dream.
    He doesn’t sell cigarettes or drinks. He’s not a lawyer defending criminals he knows are guilty. He’s just stretching himself to the limit. I thought the blue ball full of water was brilliant – like a drop of ocean in the middle of a hard city.

    Come on guys – Lighten up!!!

    I blogged about this yesterday. He’s certainly free to be an idiot and the millions of people who seem fascinated with “stunts” like being underwater for a week and how pruny his fingers are are certainly free to enjoy that too.

    But what bugs me is how much time the media devotes to this utterly unimportant stuff when seriously important things get 30 seconds on the news. Our priorities are totally out of whack.

    Apparently he is that nuts. I know someone who works at an auction house where he buys stuff like once a year, and she says that he’s totally weird.

    I don’t care that he does these stunts. Many idiotic young boys and men do this kind of shit for attention. What bothers me is that someone out there thinks this shit is newsworthy. Who’s interested and why the fuck does it merit publicity? Is our society so incredibly vapid that David Blaine passes for entertainment?
