I have been working at Dave's Killer Magic Shop this Summer. Such a great experience to work behind the counter of a brick and mortar magic shop! All walks of life come in to either browse or purchase...a couple of weeks a go a television celebrity and his son came in to enjoy the "best magic shop they have ever been to"! 

After I close the place I browse the huge selection of used books that have accumulated over the years.

Yesterday I found, and purchased, "The Magic Hedonists' Brainstorm in the Bahamas".

This morning I began a casual flip of the pages to look it over. To my surprise it has been autographed to the original owner by none other than Daryl. A bittersweet discovery to say the least.

Dan,

Congratulations on that find!

I visited Dave's with Rudy back in October, just a few weeks after Daryl lectured there. It is a wonderful shop and I encourage all who read this to support this particular type of endangered species.

There is something to be learned from the demonstrator's perspective. Last month, I helped a friend work his table at the San Diego Penguin Expo. Standing behind the counter and observing the wanton, hungry-eyed bunch on the other side really prompted me to examine the zombie-monkey on my own back... Moments later, however, I handed $100 to Michael Weber for a pamphlet about half the size of Mao's Little Red Book.

Must.. Eat... BRAINS!

I own that book and unfortunately it is not signed by Daryl...

While I flip through its pages and see the pictures of the Hedonists having fun in the Bahamas I always wondered what it would be like to live that kind of life... Magical and fun I guess...

Around 2 or 3 months after Daryl passed away, his wife posted on Facebook some pictures and one or two of them were from that trip and they were not published in the book.
