I have. I actually learned that one trick and performed it for a small crowd on halloween in Hollywood a few years back. It was a rush. I'm not a magician I just went through a phase of studying some magic tricks at one point.
Took forever to track down the book that has the trick in it, along with a bunch of other insane (and dangerous) tricks.
I have not as a matter of fact. I understand Blaine always get very strong reactions with it (Despite everything, I am still a pretty huge Blaine fan)
It wasn't the David Ben book was it?
It's wonderful that you had that performing experience. One of my favorite things about magic is you can be focused on all kinds of other things (school, day job etc.) and still bust something out at a party and get that "rush."
