I'm not sure how many of you know what mentalism is, but I'm putting together a mentalism show. Mentalism is where you read minds, bend metal with your mind, make people see and feel things that aren't there, etc. The same things psychics do.

It's a stage show and picture this situation in your mind...waiting for the show to start you sit in your seat with the lights off, the only light coming from a long line of candles on either side of the seating area. In surround sound, there is music playing in the background. The music playing needs to be dark and mysterious, but also needs to sound cool and needs to go somewhere (not just wierd music or sounds that make better soundtracks than anything else) but also provide an air of anticipation for the audience. Enigma has some good stuff, Radiohead's "everything in it's right place" is a good example, sneaker pimps "6 underground", and Chorus of Tribes' "hihahey" are great examples!

Can anyone suggest some other artists I might want to look into?

Tool "Forty-six and 2".. not mellow at all, but very mind-frick-alicious.
a few suggestions:

Vas "Astrae"
Loop Guru "Caravan"
DJ Shadow "Midnight in a Perfect World"
Pleb "Snake in the Bush"
Serge "Folk Implosion"
Natacha Atlas "Fun does not exist"
Jaz Klash "The Finale"
Laurent Garnier "Mad With the Red Face"
Layo & Bushwacka "Shining Through"
"life in mono" -mono
"a dream within a dream" - dreadzone
"three"- massive attack
"sugar water"-cibo matto
"gnossiene no.1" -erik satie
Garbage - A Stroke of Luck, Milk, You Look So Fine
Goldfrapp - Utopia(new ears mix) - off of the Cafe Del Mar vol. 8 cd
Ivy - Worry About You
Julee Cruise - Into the Night, The World Spins
Black Sabbath or Pantera - Planet Caravan
Foreigner - Girl on the Moon
Sparklehorse - It's a Wonderful Life
Type O Negative - Love You to Death, Christian Woman, Haunted
Tool - H
A Perfect Circle -
Vast - Touched

Kahu what is that you linked to? I'm afraid to download it.
it's a guy getting hit on the nuts by his nanchuck.

woman: "is it true that men get debilitated when kicked in the groin?"
man: "i get debilitated when i SEE a man getting kicked in the groin"
man's groin = woman's breasts

And my husband doesn't get that, I'm always getting clobbered there. :blink:
Damn right :(. Lesson for you fellas out there: handle with care. Sincerely. Cause sore breastadges make for a cranky lady.
