Hey man, I will be at Cal Magic sometime tomorrow. (Asking Gerry for help with a sleight) So if there's a certain time during the day you'll be there be sure to tell me. If not, I'll be there as late as possible. (ALAP)
Actually I've never met Joel. I've seen him perform there but never actually talked to him. He doesn't hang out there much. I talk to Gerry all the time though. He's really cool. I actually started magic when I saw a show there when I was about ten. I went home and learned a trick from, "Mark Wilson's Little Book of Card Tricks." For Christmas that year my Grandpa bought me a present there.
Anyway, it's a really cool place. A few months ago I met Wayne Houchin there. He signed my copies of DisTorion and Stigmata. Later I went to his lecture.
