Have any of you all heard of dm's latest update? He is going to starve himself to test his mind and control. I haven't seen hardly any info about this anywhere. Not even any forums on here. But the only reason i found out about this was because i saw it on dm's facebook page. Here is what he has to say about it. The Madison Show is in the making and has been for a while. Having taken a sidestep from magic I have found a calling that will fulfill my first venture into challenging my mind. The Hunger, isn’t something I wanted to make a show of but the Madison show must begin somewhere, and in stead of enduring The Hunger in solitude, I have decided to document my actions and share the outcome with you. Starting on Friday the 3rd of October 2008, I will begin an experiment in control and endurance through which I will commence a starvation diet that has become known to me as the ‘Bale’ diet. I am unable to inform you of the exact diet as an act so severe cannot be advertised or glamorized. I will carry the starvation for 4 months ending on 3rd February 2009 under supervision from my wife - a qualified Staff Nurse, and frequent heath checks at my local doctors. I am not doing this for weight loss; this is a challenge of the mind and nothing more. Serious weight loss is inevitable and if advised by the doctor at any point I will stop the challenge. Throughout this challenge I will keep focus on the effects such diets have on the mind when the body is affected in such a way; something most weight-loss associated sources fail to touch or educate on. I have one force of motivation; having survived a long run of insomnia I suffered delusions and nightmares that one day soon I will lose my mind; this induced my fascination with the human mind beyond any thought I have ever had. I once trained my memory to a near-photographic level, I have beat addictions, illnesses and endured fetes that I will not speak of with nothing more than mind control and it’s become my obsession to find out the limits of my mind before it is too late. There are many things for me to discuss through this challenge, including anorexia, depression, starvation, madness and endurance amongst many others subjects, and although I could express my thoughts on these things now before I begin, I will save them to fill the pages of the daily diary that I will be keeping throughout (which will be made available at the end of the fete.) I will also be documenting the entire event on film so that the effects can be seen throughout. The film will be made available at the end. I am not glamorizing anything I am doing, condoning or promoting any part of it, this isn’t about weight loss; it is a challenge and experiment of the limits and affects of the mind… I want to know how far my mind will go. So I’m going to find out. Good Luck Daniel! We're all rooting for you.
