Doesn't have to be just magicians, but who do you know that is famous and you can call up and say "hey, hows it going?"

If I were in the habit of listing their names, they probably wouldn't want to be my friends anymore.

I don't know any famous people (household names to the general public). I've known a few who THINK they are famous in that sense. Smile

I don't know any famous people, unless you are talking about in the magic community. Otherwise, no, I have met several public officials and celebrities. But I do not know them.

Others I know can't mention due to client confidentiality and fact they are business colleagues as well as friends.

I met Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse at Disney World.

Nice guys but a little on the quiet side . . .

Working in the TV business in L.A., I've had occasion to form working relationships and to make the aquaintance of several well-known people. And I've formed friendships with some well-known magicians as well.

But it ain't cool to drop names....

I wasn't trying to make this post into a listing, bragging type thing. I just thought it would be interesting to see what magicians know other people. That's all..... Sorry if you took it the wrong way.

Yes, an extremely popular female singer-not internationally popular but here in Finland. She is a real superstar (think Cher but in national scale). When she pops in for a coffee, neighbours will always go berserk. Funniest thing of all is being with her at home, when she's got no make-up or costume - she's a whole different person than anybody would ever think and that person I like so much over the bit bitchy, stylished public image.

When I toured with bands many years ago, I got to know some folks real well. Amanda Marshall was amazing. Hung out with her parents. Her mom makes an amazing hot sauce. I know quite a few people here in the Café pretty well that I could call up in an instant.

Former pro wrestlers Ted Dibiase (The Million Dollar Man), Nikita Koloff, Steve Borden (Sting) and WWE wrestler HBK Shawn Michaels. They have all been to my church several times.

A friend was at a party while in university. Everyone was bragging about their careers... their education... their friends (lots of name dropping)... their stocks... their vacations... their accomplishments.

The conversation turned to my friend and everyone waited expectantly for him to define himself. My friend smiled and offered, "I once killed a gopher with a stick."

Understood, Evan.
I should have indicated the grin with which that post was written.
