So, after this blog went down for a few days last week and then came back, it went right down again… I finally gave up on trying to solve the problem myself and hired someone who knows what the hell they’re doing to clean up my files instead. Explorative Approach has been back online for a few days again and I’m ready to tentatively announce: “I’m back!?”
Below, you’ll find a video featuring a short interview with Derren Brown. It’s worth seeing for several reasons, one of them being that anything with Derren Brown in it is worth seeing. Yes, I’m a fan. Another reason I will get into after you’ve given the interview a look.
In case you don’t know who Derren Brown is: He’s an illusionist and mentalist, which means that he does magic tricks that make it seem like he can read minds or that he has other psychic abilities. Brown is to mentalism what David Copperfield is to illusionism, which is to say: He’s taken the art to it’s extremes. He also has a personality and wit that would make him entertaining even if he wasn’t also blowing your mind with his tricks.
Anyway, here’s the video I want you to see:
