The last thing the world needs is another person writing about how terrible Criss Angel's Believe show at the Luxor is. Instead, then, I've decided to do today's diary entry as a video. In which I talk about how terrible Criss Angel's Believe show at the Luxor is.

If you're looking for a snappy rant, this isn't for you. Instead it's twelve and a half minutes of me venting my frustration at everything that's wrong with bad Las Vegas magicians, and everything that's right -- by contrast -- with Penn & Teller's show at the Rio.

The too long, didn't watch summary: Criss Angel's show is a disgrace, his use of stooges is beneath contempt, I feel sorry for Cirque Du Soleil (who co-produced the show) like one feels sorry for the long-suffering wife of a complete dickhead -- and you should see Penn & Teller instead.

Quick note: in the video I say I can't believe that Angel's show cost $100 million to put on. I checked. It did.
