There are usually two schools when it comes to magic. People who hate it, and people who enjoy it. There rarely seems to be anyone who is in the middle of that. But even for the most jaded non-magic fans, there has to be a certain allure to Penn and Teller and just how they satirize exactly what they do so well. The thing is, we are all used to hearing Penn do the talking, and Teller be the silent one (please note the irony in names). Well, The Smithsonian has an amazing article about magic written by Teller himself, in his own words.
While the article itself may be a few years old, safe to say most missed out on this little gem of an article written by one of magic's better halfs (so well known for never saying a word). It is nice to read some of his idealogies on magic and finally get some insight into how the quiet half of Penn and Teller thinks.
Heck, I'd even recommend those not into magic check the piece out. It just might give you a new apprecation for just what these guys do. They are the anti-magic magicians. That pretty much makes them the most punk rock magicians who ever existed.
