Re: Wizard Wars on March 4 on SyFy

But who in the hell is Christen Gerhart? She is billed as a famous magic critic. I’ve been an obsessive student of magic for 41 years and I’ve never heard of her. Zero hits for "Christen Gerhart" in AskAlexander. I've seen her as a host on the Theory 11 video series Expose: http://media.t...

As I slowly go through downloading them to my own iTunes, I'll try to remember to commit them back up. The listing of topics don't quite line up to the tracks.

Re: New from Kaufman and Company: The Skinner Tapes

Thank you for checking. When imported into iTunes there were several tracks (like 40) but no album name. As such I could not find a practical way to add them to my iPod without renaming each track. It was not worth the hassle. I just submitted the tracks for CD 1 to GraceNote. See if you can add it...

Cancelled my room at Renaissance for IBM/SAM convention

I'm not sure if the Renaissance hotel is booked up for SAM/IBM week or not, but I found someone to share a room with that also had reservations, so I just cancelled mine.

If anyone was looking before and was told it was sold out, there is at least one available now.

Re: Another History Question: Penn & Teller Truck Stunt

Looks like the show was called "Penn & Teller: Don't Try This At Home"

Genii (Jan 1991) says the special was "taped live from New York's Radio
City Music Hall". No date of the actual taping was given.

Re: Great stage manipulator. Does anyone know who he is?

Looks like he may not have placed at FISM until 1982.

Genii August 1979 lists him competing at FISM that year (with the misspelt name). Genii August 1982 reports, with his correct name, that he won third place in manipulation.
