Make Believe

This looks like a great documentary. I went to school with a guy who was big into his magic. His nickname was “Presto”. 18 years old and he would be doing magic tricks for people in the halls before class. Thinking back, he took an awful lot of shit for this thing he was deeply passionate about.

The last time I saw him, it was when Uri Gellar played in Dublin back in 2007 or so. He’d gotten all into Nu-Metal, he’d been arrested a few times and I’m fairly sure he was off his face on meth at the time.

Still - this looks like a great documentary.
