Hmm luke jermay?
I idolize the man for many reasons. He was a great performer in my mind before I'd met him, and earned my respect a million times over....
But to meet the man, was one of the best things ever! He is instantatally nice, and good natured. He didn't treat me like an immature brat, but as an equal. (I'm 12 by the way, so you can get an idea of why this is big for me) I met him in the Rio (hotel where P&T do their shows) after a show, and we started talking about magic and other aspects, when, (you get the idea, we talked for a while --_--).
Then, his wife siad, well, luke, why not do a trick for the boy! (something to that effect). So he borrwed my deck of cards and spread through them face up. He told me to look at a card, and keep it in my mind. So i did, he then gave me the deck to hold, and shuffle, cut and do whatever with. SO i shuffled it to no end, while he was talking. Then I held it out in my hand, and he told me to think of my card (I could change it if i wanted) and snap my fingers over the cards. So i did. HE then asked me if I was exepecting it to come to the top of the deck, and I really was......
low and behold, the card was in his freaking pocket!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (sorry for the neumerous exclamation points, trying to express my idea) I flipped out, It was amazing. His magic is truely exelent.
Now it was my turn...
Having studied his material, and practiced it upon my friends, I deciedd to do an ommage ish effect to his wife, a mix between his creation, and mine, Dead! (for andruzzi, in his book) I decided to try it on him (his wife, he creared it after all). It worked and such, but apparentatally he was talking to my dad, who told him my age. and said I was amazing, icne I've only been in magic for less than a year. and I'm the only one he's met who can do that effect, and then wwe talked for some time after that.
The point is that the man is a genius, and should be respected by ALL for magic and mentalisim.
