magic's negative stereotype
despite the revolution magic has undergone the past several years, it still seems to carry with it a negative stereotype, in that the term 'magic' alludes to a child's hobby rather than a legitimate artform.
(IE. My co-workers saw me reading a copy of 'Totally Out of Control' during my lunch hour, and asked me what I doing. When I responded, "I'm studying a card trick.", I was met with strange looks and condescending comments)
a) When you guys tell 'regular' people that you are professional magicians, have you ever been met with any negative feedback?
b) What do you guys think that we can do collectively as a community to help remove those barriers/stereotypes?
Both: What do you think of flourishes? What can you say about next david blaine stunt?

What inspired you to come up with wounded?
Are you and David Blaine related?
