Picks and Pans Review: On the High Wire—Upside Down! David Blaine's Wild New Stunt

UPDATED 09/29/2008 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 09/29/2008 at 01:00 AM EDT

Magical marathon man David Blaine, 35, will hang from a wire five stories up for three days in New York City's Central Park, culminating in a two-hour special on ABC Sept. 24.

HOW HAVE YOU BEEN PRACTICING?
I have an inversion machine, gravity boots ... In the last two weeks, I've dropped another 12 lbs.

WHAT'LL YOU THINK ABOUT UP THERE ALONE?
Anything. It's nice when you do those things. You're not interrupted by meetings, cell phones. You kind of get to just dangle there.

SO YOU AREN'T AFRAID OF HEIGHTS?
No. I'm just afraid of insects.
