Wow! Two professional responses to my request! It's... like magic!
Had I had the foresight to imagine that I would be contacted by such knowledgable and skilled performers, I would have stated my case more carefully and desperately - perhaps we could have held a magic conference on the message board!
Mr. Moche - I have visited and been thrilled by your website - so much so that I have requested that a few associates in the New York area attempt to catch a show, should you be doing one in the near future, and get an autograph or signed deck of cards or something to send back to me, as I am not in that area.
Yours was the name that I was struggling to place with the face I had in my mind. I could only recall simple details - myself approaching after the show to purchase a CD from you with the last money I had brought with me on the ship, and being very pleased with my purchase, though I was out of cash. Unfortunately, I had lent the CD to my best friend in late 2003, who performed his on brand of magic on it by "making it disappear" more permanently than I had hoped.
Thank you both for your replies to my post. I shall be in contact with you both, if that's okay with you. I'd hate to grow rabbit ears or turn into a snail because one of you got an e-mail that you weren't expecting.
