Hi Everyone,

Today marks Harry Lorayne's 94th year on this planet! Wow!! The majority of those years have been spent entertaining audiences around the world and teaching others to do the same. He has been a huge influence on my life as a magician and I'm truly blessed to count him as a friend.

Harry and I are inviting you to join us for a special online Zoom meeting where you can talk to the man himself!! Ask him questions about his life, his magic, and about the many interesting people that he's met throughout his long and successful career. It's sure to be a great time!

Space is going to be limited, so I would encourage you to register right away.

When: May 5th, 2020 
Time: 2:00pm (Pacific)

Harry, it is a joke.  Or an attempt at one.  The song ties in with the fact that so many of us are participating in Zoom meetings.  Mbreggar said "Zoom you tomorrow" and I just amplified that by wondering 'Who's Zooming Who'.  We have to have something to laugh about with all that is going on.

One thing that isn't a joke is your willingness to participate in tomorrow's session.  We are in for a treat!

Hi, everyone.

I just wanted to say what a lovely experience that was, getting to listen to Harry tell stories about his life.

Of course, the magic and memory content was great, but it was much more than that for me. To hear the things that Harry has been through and that made him the man he is today was both humbling and inspiring.

So thank you, Harry, for sharing and thank you, Rudy, for putting it together.

I love Ray's comment: "Best two hours of my day."
Given what's happening in the world today we really need to savor moments like this.

Thanks, Rudy, for getting this set up, and thanks Harry for spending the time with us and for your candor and warmth.

This is a beautiful photo from Harry's 90th birthday party.  I thought it appropriate to re-post it here because Harry spoke about his wonderful family during the talk.  His granddaughter is adorable.  It is clear that Harry was enjoying his day!

Following up on something I mentioned in yesterday's talk with Harry.  This is an example of one of the accolades stated by a popular magician.  In this case, Steve Cohen from his blog, chambermagic.com:

Imagine this:

I once read an article about an imaginary magician’s contest. Exactly one hundred of the world’s most talented close-up magicians would be invited to compete. Each magician must stand at his own table, and a thousand laymen would freely wander the hall, gravitating toward the most gifted performer. The table with the biggest crowds at the end of the night, wins.

By the end of the night, a thousand laymen, plus the other 99 magicians, would all be standing at one table. The magician they’d be watching:

That was so fun to watch. Harry looks great and it was a pleasure to hear him talk about his experiences growing up. 

Thanks again Rudy and Harry for doing this. It will be remembered forever.

It was awesome putting faces to names for all of you wonderful people 😉 Harry's attitude towards people is just a joy to be around, and it was really humbling to be there. Looking forward to picking up copies of The Magic Book and Close-up Card Magic as I continue along my beginner's journey 😃 Was super interesting (at least to me!) to hear about how those books came to be.

A very sincere thank you to Harry and Rudy for bringing some much-needed positivity to our lives at a time like this.

I'm not playing the photo game because I remember answers from the last time it was posted, in 2016.

(See, being a voracious reader of the forum archives occasionally pays off.)

Sorry to give that one away, all.

I thought that one was a given since he is the subject of the thread and he is turned, looking straight at the camera.  That's why I didn't mention him.

I thought I might have already posted it. But it seemed like a good place for a repost.

Kenner, Klause, Hamman, Me, Harry, Gagnon are correct. I think they guy in the blue sweater is Bob Syrup. I'm not sure of the guy on my right side? 

Mainly I wanted to show the young HL.
