Candy Loyd Auerbach!
|Hail to the Chief! This is Loyd
Auerbach! For almost as long as I've known him, Loyd
has been the President of the PEA,
and even though he handed over the presidency in real life a
while back, he will
always be The Prez of Candy
Mental Land! Loyd is a performing mentalist,
a paranormal expert and lecturer and
author, a television
ghostbuster (you've probably seen him touring haunted
ships and houses or commenting on a t.v. seance),
and he used to be a stand-up
comic. He goes by the name Professor
Paranormal (I wonder if his first name is Abner,
as in Ab-normal? Sorry, Loyd--I can't help myself!!!).
I first met Loyd
when I was running the merchandise table at a Max Maven
lecture Joe hosted.
He wanted to write a check to buy Joe's Brain
Busters. I was like, "Hmm, a check,
are you in IBM Ring 216?" "No, I'm the President of the PEA
though!" The President of the most exclusive club of elite
mentalism gods, which Joe is dying to join? So I introduced him
to Joe and I can't believe I still asked
Joe if I could take his check! (He said yes. It didn't bounce!) Loyd is super
nice and super funny
and his house is full of cool science fiction toys,
videos, and comic books and is also a haven for hungry cats and
even a raccoon.
Loyd has some great spooky ghost stories
about ghosts walking through him, and he has me convinced this blue lady
ghost at a haunted restaurant in Half Moon Bay
is totally in love with
him! My favorite thing about Loyd,
though, is how much he loves the espresso
we make with our red Francis-Francis machine, Francis.
He holds the record--he once drank six!!!
I kind of dared him. You
can see Loyd on
Joe's DVD, "Joseph Atmore is Dunninger"--Loyd
plays the announcer and he's just great!
He cracks me up! Don't you think he could have a huge
in tv sitcoms?
