No, charm spells usually wear off when the caster dies.

It was much better than Cats.  I'm going to see it again and again.

I can't read this chicken scratch?!

Oh yeah, well if he was such a good hypnotist why couldn't he predict this would happen?
 
2014-01-12 12:53:03 AM  
Mesmerizing, no doubt.

Too bad it wasn't Lance Burton.

Oh wait, he's a magician.

Maybe Barry Gibb was walking by with his crazy cool medallion and a black kite flew and plucked the medallion. It then flew by the balcony, dangling the medallion, hypnotizing the hypnotist. Seeing as how black kits can't talk, he stood there, still hypnotized until a human talked to him. He stood there for a few moments when his wife came in and said "You flirted with that red head on stage. You can take a flying leap of a balcony for all I care."

or Suge Knight dropped him.

Or he was practicing on a chicken, and the chicken thinks it's an audience

Interesting. I think this may be a murder case.

The Theory: a rival hypnotist has a beef with the deceased, so stages a plan to make a murder look like an accident.
The Execution: Rival hypnotist breaks into room whilst the other hypnotist is sleeping. All night he plays this song while he sleeps:

In the morning, the guy wakes up and has the overwhelming urge to urinate and a belief that he can fly. He cannot.

Conclusion: Murder by Prefect Crime.
 
2014-01-12 05:16:14 AM  
Ok, Farkers, how many of you could see him snapping his fingers furiously on the way down trying to wake up?
 
2014-01-12 06:13:39 AM  
Defenestration. The hypnotist must have been a member of the S.

It's Australia, shouldn't he have fallen towards the sky?

No, but witness said he was spinning clockwise

I think the whole point is that without anonymity, the people in the media liaison dept (there'd be what, 5 or 10, max?) would be at high risk of being targeted by crazies because their names would be attached to so many media releases.   You'd have to pay them a lot more to compensate for that loss of anonymity.   I suspect that in the US (or wherever), a low-level media liaison wouldn't have been identified either.   Instead, someone higher up (sheriff or something?) would've made a statement (probably written by the lowly media person).

RIP

I believe this is the guy that is related to someone I know that tried to put me under on stage with his act.
I wouldn't go under (my mind is a strange place) but I personally saw many people that did go under.
He had a good show.

I never believed in this until this show-we picked him up at airport and I absolutely knew he could not possibly know the people in the local town audience.

Learn hypnosis at home from http://www.hypnosis.edu/.Florence Henderson is in one of the videos. They have a Roku channel too.

From his website: "Catch Dr. Scott on Tour In Australia in December and January."
