Suspension And Pain

David BlaineLater this month the world’s most boring performance artist David Blaine will be suspended upside down above central park for two or three days.

When I first read this I thought the legions of people around the world who think he’s a tosser had finally caught up with him and arranged a lynching, but sadly no. It’s yet another stunt so that he can make even more money. In one way I have to salute him. An average street magician and self-styled misanthrope with about the same charisma as an empty paper cup, he keeps getting richer from doing very boring things.

Let’s face it the only reason most people watch what he gets up to is on the off-chance something goes horribly wrong.

Shit I’m bitter this week. It’s been a long one.
